This is a compliant concerning a possibly non-existent company that is extensively spamming internet users with completely bizarre and irrelevant promotions in French. A quick review of official Canadian and Quebec business registries (2011-09-21) showed no evidence that the "business" exists or is licensed and allowed to carry on its activities in Canada or elsewhere. The "marketing" practices of COMMUNICATION906.NET would tend to indicate that the operation is completely illegitimate and possibly designed to scam the public.

COMPU-FINDER SPAMS TO BE ILLEGAL AND FINEABLE AFTER NEW CANADIAN LEGISLATION

AUTHOR: Anti-Spam and Anti-Fraud - (Canada)

Compu-Finder / CompuFinder continues to spam the Canadian and international Net with irrelevant e-mails and despite unwilling recipients "unsubscribing" themselves by use of the supposed "unsubscribe" button. The problem is that CompuFinder (and its numerous domain name incarnations) uses various e-mail marketing (read: spamming) services and continues to fish for e-mail addresses all over the Internet.

According to one blogger (one of the numerous Quebec and international spamming victims thoroughly tired of CompuFinder's spamming campaigns), a small legislative relief may be on the horizon. A Canadian anti-spam bill would put major spammers such as "Compu-Finder" (3510395 CANADA INC.) on the defensive, having to compensate their victims for each spam e-mail as Canadian-registered corporations. The new legislation is due soon. However, in the meantime, victims of this company's unethical business practices are strongly encouraged to contact the Better Business Bureau of Canada (Quebec) as well as the RCMP in Montreal to provide evidence of ongoing spamming, failure to provide services as promised or marketed, failure to provide a refund where appropriate or wage payment-related irregularities. 


We need to be tolerant of marketing and getting the word out about good products that people will be interested in. This is a fundamental capitalist right and a lifeline for any business. However, Compu-Finder clearly demonstrates to the community that the company could care less whether people are interested or not after the second, tenth, fifteenth or hundredth e-mail. And if one is to believe what one reads in the blog below, marketing practices are not the only unethical aspect of this highly questionable operation!

Update: The Real Culprits- 3510395 CANADA

AUTHOR: Anti-Spam and Anti-Fraud - (Canada)

Mass Spamming Operations Already a Problem in 2008

A
ccording to a local blog La Chronique de Nelson (Quebec) with the appropriate title "La dtestable mthode de CompuFinder" (The Reprehensible Methods of CompuFinder), this spamming operation (including reported cases of fraud) has been infamously familiar to Quebecers and others since 2008. Blog participants' attempts to track down the real whereabouts of the federally (Canada) incorporated and Quebec-registered operation have led to a confusing spiral of fake addresses, multiple domains and un-kept promises by those answering the occasional phone number that e-mail addresses would be removed and the spamming stop.

The operation selling "training" and "education" appears to be part of a larger racket, if one believes the comments from 2008 on the blog. The Quebec Registrar of Enterprises lists the company under number NEQ 1148173660. For those who read French
