Sincere inquires welcome, click here. But spam of any type will be reported or dealt with; besides in my 10 years on the net I have never purchased from spam - no sense wasting your time or mine.

 

PHISHING - If someone is trying to fish for your personal identifying information and sends you phishing email, website, email addy, or service, you can report such incidents to the related company or ISP it came from. However, do NOT reply to the individaul/email you received. For example if its a yahoo abuse, "forward" a copy of it to:  mail-spoof@cc.yahoo-inc.com  But NEVER respond to the email sender it came from! Because that only goes back to the spammer in the first place and not an authority, thus you will end up on their endless phishing e-list!
