Spam – the nemesis to your inbox

Everyone hates spam emails. They pollute your inbox, they could have viruses, and they take our precious time to delete. I’m struggling with this very issue right now and I just came across something that I found very useful. I didn’t know about this previously, so maybe some of you didn’t either!

How to Report spam. Before you delete your spam, forward your spam to: This is the Spam box for FTC (Federal Trade Commission). Mail sent to this box is investigated. If it is indeed spam, the original sender can be charged $500 per email. The more mail they get from different users but same spammer, the more it’s likely to be investigated.

You can also report spam to anti-spam organizations such as SpamCop and KnujOn, who will report spammers to ISPs and government agencies.
