Unwanted commercial email – also known as "spam" – can be annoying. Worse, it can include bogus offers that could cost you time and money. Take steps to limit the amount of spam you get, and treat spam offers the same way you would treat an uninvited telemarketing sales call. Don't believe promises from strangers . Report Spam . Forward unwanted or deceptive messages to: the Federal Trade Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the complete spam email. your ISP's abuse desk. At the top of the message, state that you're complaining about being spammed. the sender's ISP. Most ISPs want to cut off spammers who abuse their system. Again, make sure to include the entire spam email and say that you're complaining about spam.
