More Ezinames spam (Bradley Norrish + Craig Oehlers)

Reports are coming in about more spam from Ezinames aka “Domain Name News · 1800 Century Park East · Los Angeles, CA 90025″

A google search shows the abundance of these paricular spams:

Ezinames spam Bradley Norrish Craig Oehlers

Craig Oehlers’ surname appears on some of the image URLs in the spam –

Since Ezinames is operated by an Australian Company – Internet Registrations Australia Pty Ltd (Bradley Norrish) – they may have breached the Australian Spam Act Cth (2003).

Anyone who has received this spam should report it to the Australian Communications Authority here:

I’ve been robbed by (Bradley Norrish + Chesley Rafferty + Craig Oehlers)

I’ve been robbed by

” …

I’ve also been screwed over by these guys. I registered my domain in March. I went away for 2 months soon after. When I got back I noticed monthly charges on my credit card from ProWeb Solutions. I had no idea who this compnay was and didn’t relate it to I scoured the net to find some reference to this company, but was unsuccessful. I decided to report it to my credit card company and issue a chargeback. About a month later (and another charge on my credit card because of the recurring bills), I receive the
following email:


Hi Jamie,

We have just received an RFI from our credit card processor regarding payment number 73677506. This payment was for web hosting and search engine submission services attached to the the domain name you registered ******.com and is fraudulently being charged back.

During the registration process it was clearly explained that the registration came with a free 1 month trial of our web hosting and search engine submission services. These could be cancelled anytime during that month and you would not be charged or you could elect to keep these services active and be charged our standard low pricing.

As per the terms and conditions of the registration agreement any credit card payment that is disputed by the customer for domain registration or extra web services, will result in loss of the associated domain name as well as the bank fees involved, your addition to the negative ‘non payer’ database and debt collection fees.

To reinstate this domain name and avoid these further fees please fax the attached form back immediately to us on +1 (212) 658 9656, this will result in you not incurring these extra fees, avoiding a possible negative effect to your credit rating and your domain should be active again within approximately 48 hours.

Yes, very threatening. It also came with an attachment (shown in the image attached to this post). Furthermore, they claim that the charges are ‘clearly explained’ during the registration process. I guess if you consider that one sentence within a large paragraph (talking about free stuff) on a webpage titled ‘FREE Webservices Included’ is clear, then iregistrations is probably right. But I feel that this is very misleading and that they intend this.


I sent them a nice email trying to explain that the only reason I issued a chargeback was becuase I had no idea who the charges where coming from and suggested that they use a merchant account similar to their business name. Nowhere in the registration process does it mention that charges come from ‘proweb solutions’

They have been very uncooporative keep insisting that I send this fax back to them. 48 hours have passed, but they are still adament that they get the fax.

I’m looking for people who have had similar experiences to myself with this company and what they did to make things right. I’m not super cocerned about keeping the domain. My credit company says that they can’t stop the recurring billing without cancellation from the merchants end. And if I send these faxes, I’m out $120 without any possiblity of a chargeback (they’d have my signature).

Thanks in advance for any feedback anyone might have.

INTRAS NetSecurity unsolicited letters (Bradley Norrish)

Brad Norrish has started a new business called “INTRAS (Australia) Pty Ltd” (ACN 107 068 931).

INTRAS NetSecurity ( is sending out unsolicited letters and CD-ROMs by snail mail.

The CD-ROM claims to have virus/spyware/etc scanning and prevention software. I have not installed the
contents of the CD-ROM, so I have no idea whether these statements are correct or not.

Has anyone else received any communication from INTRAS NetSecurity? If so have you installed their
software and worked out what it does? Did you read and understand the End User Licence Agreement (EULA)?
What is the licence fee for the software?

I find it quite ironic that another one of Brad Norrish’s businesses (Internet Registrations WorldWide /
SearchEx) seems to be in the spyware provision business (see previous post).

NetSecurity’s pricing page ( says this:

” …

1. You enter into this agreement with us, Intras (Australia) Pty Ltd. If you are entering this agreement
on behalf of some other person, you warrant that you have the authority to enter into this agreement on
behalf of that person, and you agree to be liable for all their acts and omissions.

2. You warrant that you are 18 years of age or over.

3. You are granted a 30 days trial without charge. If the software is not uninstalled from all computers
before the 30 day mark then you are liable to pay the license fees for the software.

4. License fees are $3630 upfront plus $252 per month inc GST for a minimum of 48 months – a minimum
commitment of $15762 inc GST.

5. This contract is made in the state of Western Australia and bound by the laws of the state of Western

… “

Here’s what the snail mail letter says:

“Dear Internet/Computer Users,

Please find enclosed a computer CD Rom of Intras NetSecurity.

Intras NetSecurity is designed to help you prevent worms, viruses, security flaws, backdoor entry vulernabilities, spyware, adware, and/or Trojans to increase the level of protection and security on your computer(s).

I.T. security issues cost the global economy billions of dollars in direct costs and lost productivity every year. Millions of credit cards and bank details are stolen each year by Trojan horse programs.

Every other week there is a new malicious worm being created by hackers. Melissa, SoBig, and the recent MyDoom are just a few examples of worms that have crippled millions of machines around the world.

Intras NetSecurity can assist you in detecting these infections and ensure the user remains immune to the ever evolving computer risks. We invite you to download a trial licence of Intras NetSecurity without charge. There are 25 serial codes provided on the second page of this letter which can be used to activate Intras NetSecurity within your organisation for up to 25 users. Intras NetSecurity will allow you to scan your computers for an immediate report on the security issues detected.

There is absolutely no charge for the trial use. We hope you use Intras NetSecurity and benefit from it. To install the trial simply insert the CD Rom into the CD Rom drive and follow the prompts.


Intras (Australia) Pty Ltd”

The NetSecurity End License Users Agreement is here:
