What To Do About Scam Mail

We all receive some of the scam email from some jerk looking to rip us off. I could be the Nigerian Oil Minister looking for a business partner. Or it could be the more dangerous new breed of Fake Email from Real Companies. In the last week I’ve received Fake emails from eBay, Citi Bank, and US Bank- I don’t have anything to do with the last two.

I simply forwarded the entire message to my internet provider and the company named in the message. This is easy to do because almost everyone has adopted a standard Abuse@CompanyNameHere.Com. So for example I received the message “from” eBay, I just forwarded it to my ISP Speakeasy with abuse@speakeasy.net and also to abuse@ebay.com. I got a nice little reply and that was the end of it. I forward these messages as quickly as possible hoping they can catch these buggers and put them in jail.
