Tech Tuesday: Computer Guys Live at FOSE

Yes, that was the voice of TechnoFlak talking about spam yesterday on the Kojo Nnamdi Show.

I will simply repeat what I said on the show. We need to turn the logic of spammers against them. They count on one in ten million recipients sending them money. I suggest that each of us, just once a year, fight back.

Pick just one e-mail, print out multiple copies, with complete header, and mail it to every law enforcement and government regulatory agency who could possibly have jurisdiction over a fraudulent e-mail offer. Look up the domain registry of your spammer to determine which state and municipality might have jurisdiction. You can also the search the Registry of Known Spam Operators to find out more about your spammer.
