For several weeks i have been getting spam from brigantia who use Flexmail to send them

so reported each one to spamcop and flexmail and their upstream provider Combell.

but these still keep being sent to me. then today i get another 1 and report it the same way, but then i get this email from combell

They've probably already sold your email to a dozen other spammers.

I always wonder how many of these types of spammers simply close shop and reopen somewhere else and do it all over again?
