As I am really new to the spam and scam baiting, I hope that anyone could help me. The last weeks I have been mailed over and over by the same person. His emails originated from the Canadian Pharmacy, safe viagra.
Everytime these emails keep on getting into my mail box. The email address from this person is (mod edit - email deleted - SP). I hope that anyone would like to get back at him. I sent back the email he sent me. Just seeing how he would respond. Could anyone please help me??
With deepest sincerety,

Can't do too much about spammers. They frequently use tools that mask their true location. Get yourself a spam filter and filter those types of email out. I get 100's of them daily and I just ignore them.

This is a website for combatting 419 fraud. While the viagra spammers are totally annoying and probably trying to rip you off as well, we generally do not get involved with these sorts of people.

Hi Destined.Knight, as pointed out above, this is an 419 fraud forum, we don't deal with spammers, I have removed the email address you posted, please remember that spammers spoof the "from" email addresses, so the personw email address you are receiving spam from may not even know their email addres is being abused.
A quick tip, when you open a spam email, contained in a lot of those emails are hidden images, it might be a 1x1 blank pixel image, but when you open the email, that is reported back to the spammer that you viewed the invisible image, this tells the spammers that your email account is active, so they send you even more spam, simply block the senders address and delete the email.
I forgot to mention, we don't allow the posting of random email addresses as it leaves things open to abuse, for example, the email address could have belonged to someone you fell out with and you wanted to get back at them by getting people to mail them, that's why he have a rule, whereby members have to post the accompanying scam email, preferably with headers when posting a particular email address (not applicable in your case as we don't deal with spam), if they don't, the address gets deleted to prevent any possible abuse.
