spam from microsoft azure

Today I reported over 60 spam/phishing emails and yesterday it was over 89.I'm sure by the time I turn my computer off in another hour, there will be more of the same.  They are all from the same phoney invalid domain name:

InfoContactMailingOffertoCustomer.com all with different ip addresses. They are all using the same subjects, and the unsubscribe domain addresses are phoney. Everything is phoney and the IPs are blacklisted on dnsbl.spfbl.net

You would think that Office 365 would get tired of all the emails I send but I don't get any response from them. Why all of a sudden is my spam coming from microsoft azure ip's???I spent the last 2 years reporting  spam from amazonaws.com and now I have this **** from azure. I don't even have an Azure account. Don't even know what it's about.

This is so sick. You would think that a big organization like microsoft would now how to prevent this. I have tried all their suggestions for blocking but that only screws up my legitimate email.

I've been getting lots of spam from Microsoft IPs in what Microsoft identifies as being from Azure or Office 365 servers. They either forward the issue to Azure or tell me to forward to Outlook 365 depending in what they determine. I have been checking all the headers now and dont bother with the fake domain names. I just send the report to abuses(at)microsoft(dot)com and they do eventually reply. I sometimes trace the links using redirect detective and report all the redirects and ultimate landing website to Spam Cop. I use a VPN so spammers can't tell where the complaints and redirect checks are coming from.

At one point, I was getting 20 spams a day but now it is down to 2 or 3 or even none on some days.

I used to get most of it from Amazon AWS (from summer 2020 to early spring 2020), but after aggressively reporting all the spam, I only get one every few days.

Spammers are going tp spam. It simply costs so little for the huge returns they get, even if they take in an infinitessimally small number of people to whom they send their trash. Any anti-spam solution will be temporary until they find another weakness to exploit.

The amount of spam/phishing I've received so far this month is at 325 emails. Today alone I've received 16 and they are all duplicates of ones I've already reported. Someone is still using adams(dot)edu --a university but I'm pretty sure universities don't get into selling illegal drugs or porn sites and everything in between. Last year it was WSU supposedly sending out these same emails.

I put up with spam from AmazonAws for 2 years, getting thousands of their emails and "touch wood" they have finally stopped sending them to me. Now the spam is all from Microsoft Azure.

I was told to send abuse reports to junk(at)office365(dot)com and also Cert(at)microsoft(dot)com as well as abuse(at)microsoft(dot)com.

Last month was over a thousand emails and I've had a few responses from microsoft saying they investigated and that the sender was emailing against the terms of their service. If only they could get rid of some more and then I could actually get on with my business

I have exactly the same problem ! Before spam came from AWS, and now the winner is Microsoft Azure. One spam = one complaint !

The Microsoft response is : CLOSED ! But there is no result ! Is Microsoft a spammer ? The provider is responsible ! 
It's a Microsoft cloud, an IP Microsoft then Microsoft is responsible !  

It's probably because AWS is using Microsoft Azure ... NO ?

Microsoft MUST stop the spammer !

My complaints about spam originating from Microsoft servers throughout the world result in responses from Microsoft, but often they are much later, like a week or two. Then they either tell me that it came from Azure and have forwarded the complaint there, or it came from an Outlook service, and make me forward the complaint there.

I must admit that after a couple of months of reporting to Microsoft and doing the follow-up in the case of Outlook, the spam from them has declined to a trickle, but not stopped. I don't know if it is because f a weakness being exploited by spammers or that Azure and Outlook derive revenue from spammers. In the case of the first instance, I wish they'd fix the exploit(s). In the case of the second instance, there isn't a lot of incentive for Microsoft to change things.

So far this month, I have had 103 spam/phishing emails. Last month I had 445 all from AZURE.  I have reported almost all of them and like you it takes weeks to get a response and then when they do they don't indicate which report they are responding to so I have no idea if the account they closed is someone I'm still getting spam from. I'm supposed to be running a business but when I wake up to 24 spam emails from overnight, I then have to spend hours reporting them.

It is very frustrating to see that some of them come from so called Private Domains but they are allowed to invade our privacy. What I don't understand is how these spammers are allowed to continue when they are illegally using other business names, like Shark Tank, enterprise rent a car, nike, gap, amazon and university domains. What has happened to the agreement between Canada and US (Can-Spam Act) that requires these companies to have permission before they send you something? Why can't these people be prosecuted for supplying phoney unsubscribe addresses or some of the other rules in this act or for promoting an unproved medical procedure or medicine or for sending pornography across the border?

I reported using the portal suggested. This is one case that traces to Microsoft Azure. Not sure if there is a follow-up or if Microsoft is just blowing me off. The answer is pretty vague: "actioned it appropriately". Below is the response:

Did get one redirect domain name shut down. Was getting spam that used a variety of Azure IPs that used amusinggloko.live as the domain for redirects to gambling, sex and fraudulent products or services websites. Namecheap registered the domain and did de-register it after a couple of weeks. Still getting the spam from Microsoft Azure, maybe two or three a day, but the links are dead. Waiting for the spammer to use a new domain name.
