Dealing with scammers/spammers

I know that we are often told not to respond to these emails we all get saying we have won ............
Well it got to the point I was so fed up with them filling my inbox I did respond with the following
Thank you for sending me this fraudulant email. I have forwarded it to the internet fraud website and to the fraud section of my local police department.
It seems to have slowed them down a lot, I don't get nearly as many as I used to.

You sure say it a lot nicer than I do. But all they do is sell the list to someone else. And the beat goes on.

Re: Dealing with scammers/spammers

Here's a couple of addresses that you can contact to report Spammers, scammers, Trolls and the likes that send trash to you email inbox and otherwise on your computer:

Federal Communications Commission, Washington D.C.: = fcc.gov.

Federal Bureau of Investigation, Washington, D.C. = fbi.gov.

For inside and outside of the Continential U.S.: Interpol; International Police: interpol.gov.

State you complaint, time and date it occurred, any other info. that you can provide including the offending material and pictures, other media.
These folks will arrange an early morning visit to these individuals and very possibly a furnished suite in the cross-bar hotel with mess hall meals and supervised yard time, by people with sticks that like to use them on other people's heads.
You will get results and quite often in less than a week you will find that if it is a website that is planting crap on your computer that they will have vanished from the internet.
With Spammers, scammers and Trolls; they will have disappeared as well. Sentences usually are 10 years. For Ponography, especially vicious and perverted material involving bondage and child abuse, they are looking at 20 years on. Child abuse could get them 30 years or more.
Then, they will get cell-mates that can teach them a thing or too about obscene practices and they wont like it!
Fake User Names and Email addresses will not help them. They will be traced to their location and identified as to excatly who they are.
