Donald Knox-Richards, Elius Books and spam permalink
I've just received (in contravention of Section 22 of the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003) a (google groups archive) spam e-mail from someone purporting to be "Donald Knox-Richards", mentioning books and John Thaw. The advertised web site was Elius Books, for which the whois record is:
$ whois elius-books.co.uk Domain name: elius-books.co.uk Registrant: Elius Books (Internet) Limited Registrant type: UK Limited Company, (Company number: 6163685) Registrant's address: 6A Wellgreen Road Childwall Liverpool L25 1QP GB Relevant dates: Registered on: 15-May-2008It's an unusual name, so I googled for it, and turned up this BBC news report about someone of that name being jailed for fraud relating to a book he wrote about John Thaw.
There's also a press release from the DTI, headlined JUDGE THROWS THE BOOK AT BANKRUPT PUBLISHER.
