How do I block emails from J.P. Monfort - the infamous king of spam!

CFTS unwittingly opened our door to JP Monfort, our bad and been paying the price ever since, OK so you want to know how to get rid of him, he even using our information without our consent even after telling him to stop, if there was ever a doubt about his illegitimacy this confirmed it.

If you have your own email, through a host, and your own domain, then you can begin using expression filters for email and blocking domains as well as the normal spam filters and services.

We finally managed to block 'Mr. Spam King' completely by using 'expression filters' most enterprise spam engines allow expression files, we use ORF by vamsoft for our exchange servers and frankly the software and the support we get has been flawless, for those that manage their own spam control, this expression filter should work, makes sure it scans both subject and body, alter to suit your specific needs:

.*\bJPMonfort\b|.*\bMonfort\b|.*\bPozuelo-Monfort\b|.*/bJ.P.Monfort/b

known domains to block/filter are:

jpmonfort.int
presidentialnarrative.info

Spam King keeps on changing his tactics so you need to keep an eye on things but so far we've not had a successful incursion since we implemented this in 2016

Jaime Pozuelo-Monfort brags that he has been able to flood the mailboxes of almost 12 million professionals, by his own account.

One thing most people don't realize is that 99% of what we call "spam" is really a crime or at the very least attempted crime. Many of the spams are setting the victim up for a planned future crime. There are 80 criteria that can classify it as a criminal activity.

Today's "Privacy" climate, and all the various activities now in motion to preserve and protect people and business anonymity is actually aiding cybercriminals and helping them be more successful at avoiding detection and getting caught.

The question is still out there if this guy really is a scammer or just massively unbalanced.
