    You can't really do anything.. you could try, but it would cost you more money and time that you would want to spend. But thing to do is just post it here on the forums so everyone can laugh at it, and delete it from your inbox/spam box.

    Well I do receive one almost every week. I keep them in a special label. People often don't believe me that those kind of thing exists.

    I just tend to ignore these spam emails when they hit my personal gmail account. Never really seems worth going after them in those instances.

    These kind of people need to go to jail. They seem to be working because people get scammed still.

    As stated above, ymail/yahoo abuse may be able to look into the issue a little further. It is likely the email address is spoofed, there are plenty of ways to do that. Though, try to grab some details from the header. Do some detective work, and if you can locate their ISP/DC you may be able to cause a ruckus with the ISP and their IPs being abused. Then you can work your way from the top of the ladder to push pressure down from the ISP to their client, and so on, and so on... and possibly make it more difficult for these people to continue their operation.

    Heh, the problem there is, it's not worth it.

    You might as well play along with them a bit, and see if they will slip up and let un-proxy'd information slip through.

    I am getting such emails ever since I started my life on Internet.
    I wonder the people who send such emails s it really profitable for them?
    Because I always press the spam button when I see such rubbish.
