    You guys are the greatest,,,,, and too funny.

    Seriously though, I, like many of you are sick of the spammers, no matter what you do they get through. So here is what I did. First you need to go to your email settings and change the settings to HIGH. Then when many spammers still got through I compiled this email reply. The facts in it are true. It may take a couple of weeks to get the message across to many different groups, but it worked and my spam has gone down to only a couple a week!!!!

    My email reply to spammers;

    I dont know where you got my email address from
    but please do not send me any more junk mail.

    PUT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS HERE

    I will register you, your info, IP and Zip code as a spammer on the
    official site, so data and evidence can be collected for prosecution

    The penalties for being a spammer are no joke these days. Sanford Wallace,
    often referred to as the “Spam King”, is experiencing this firsthand,
    as he deals with a $711 million judgment against him for spamming Facebook.
    Now, another legendary spammer is also facing a steep penalty for his
    spamming ways. Alan Ralsky, called the “Godfather of Spam”, will be
    paying for his crimes in a jail cell, serving 51 months in prison for
    his career in sending mass amounts of junk email.

    Ralsky has spammed the world for more than 12 years and has been
    responsible for many of the common scams we see today. One of the
    frauds that helped him earn his jail sentence was a “pump-and-dump”
    stock scheme, in which Ralsky purchased mass amounts of stock and then
    sent millions of spam emails urging other people to do the same.
    As people took the bait, Ralsky would cash in on the stock.
    This ended up costing him in the end, as he wasn’t just tried under
    the CAN-SPAM Act, but was also indicted for money laundering and a
    host of other crimes.

    Spam has been a widespread issue of the Internet since nearly the beginning.
    As the costs associated with it have risen and the amount of spam itself
    has grown to ridiculous proportions, people have banded together to fight
    the problem.

    Security companies and law enforcement have often worked
    together to combat the issue, resulting in people being fined and server
    farms being destroyed.

    Still, the problem remains. These prison sentences will serve as a
    reminder that at least someone is working on an issue that may seem
    impossible to fix

    I know your IP and personal addresses both for you personally and this
    present company you have sent me spam for and I will take action.
    You most certainly ought to warn ANY company you work for in sending spam,
    what I will do if they send any spam to my email address.

    I could send you a list of others I have prosecuted, but that is
    confidential info. covered by Data Protection. I have given you the above
    information, only because it was reported in the media as an example.

    You have to be careful who you send junk mail to these days,
    you never know who the person is or what they do for a living!!!!!

    BE WARNED. MY SPAM HAS DECREASED ENORMOUSLY! ASK YOURSELF WHY.

    I WILL PROSECUTE

    END

    It works guys!!!!

    Good luck and let us know how you get on

    @Ladybbird, sorry but only a script kiddie would think you can get their IP adresses (and certainly you can’t get their zip code).

    By the way, I loved the video, the “I’m coming after you next” was epic :D

    @Camilo Martin
    Your darn right their IP address can be found, and yes even zip codes etc.
    You just need to know how to find this.

    @Ladybbird
    GOOD for you! I too am fighting back at the spam, it is worse than telemarketers. I send email to their providers with the full source of the message. Your provider then will probably suspend your account and charges could be pending. Now really is spamming worth it?

    Merry Christmas to all
