Annoying Turkish Spammers: Avukat Faruk Haksal

I called 90 256 8564012, the phone number listed on this Turkish spammer's "about" page

I am getting intense amount of spam from Turkish spammers these days. The most recent Turkish spammer is this man below. Since I was unable to stop his spam machine in the past three months or so, I started returning these emails to him which pop up every 60 minutes or so in my inbox. Today I realized that he actually black listed his spam victims. He does not hear back from the people he is spamming 24/7.

Finally this evening I called 90 256 8564012, the phone number listed on his Website "about" page.

Apparently the number was his home phone number also listed on his website as:

Avukat Faruk Haksal, Didim Akbük Cumhuriyet Mahallesi 1. Kordon Numara 26 Aydın, Turkey.

Apparently three hours ahead of Rome, Italy I woke him and his wife, they were not very happy. I think he cursed at me in Turkish by saying "ulan kekeme, dilini mi yuttun orospu chojuu" and hung up.

Here is why I took the time to write this blog entry. This lawyer has a phone number, street address, and email. I can't seem to be able stop him. If you read this and happen to live in the same town as this spammer, could you please ask him to stop. I had the following translated by a friend of mine. He said Avukat Faruk Haksal, the Turkish spammer sounds like a left over communist from 1970s. Whoever he is he should not be spamming people in Italy, I can't understand his communist manifesto.
