Roffle from CCBill

I keep getting hit by this bizarre user agent Roffle and there isn't much information at all that I can find about this on the net as it doesn't even appear in most of the user agent resource sites.

Here's what I know about it:

64.38.240.97 "Roffle/l.ol(compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0;"
In my case it always crawls from the same IP address which oddly enough is owned by CCBill LLC:
whois 64.38.240.97
CCBill LLC CCBILL-PRODUCTION-SYSTEM (NET-64-38-240-0-1)
64.38.240.0 - 64.38.240.255

whois NET-64-38-240-0-1

OrgName: CCBill LLC
OrgID: CCBIL
Address: 1501 W 17th St
City: Tempe
StateProv: AZ
PostalCode: 85281
Country: US

NetRange: 64.38.240.0 - 64.38.240.255
CIDR: 64.38.240.0/24
NetName: CCBILL-PRODUCTION-SYSTEM
So why in the hell does an internet billing system have a bot crawling the net?

Guess I could ask them, but that's not as much fun as figuring it out with clues on the net!

Hi. I would like to say that redently I had to deal with ccbill. Before I engaged in any business with the company I browsed the net and on this great site www.pissedconsumer.com I learned about the company itself and the customers’ experience with the company. CCBill has become one of the leading service providers in E-Ticketing and access management. The company offers the best E-Ticketing solutions, providing high-performance billing services, automated password management systems, advanced fraud protection, as well as consumer-support services.
