HOW THIS WORKS

There are numerous ways to get email spam.

  1. Spammers harvest your email address from websites (example: classified ads), and then send you junk email.

  2. Spammers fill out your website's email form to send you junk email.

By filling out the form above, the information you fill out in the form will instantly be posted to the internet where spammers who harvest email addresses from websites on the internet will be able to harvest their own email address or another spammers email address.

*Important Note*

Often the "reply to" email address in the spam email message you received is not valid.  More often than not, there are links to click on in the email message.  You may need to use the links to find the true email address.

To find the email address of the owner of a website url:

1.  You will need to right click on the link in the email message and then click on "properties" to actually see where that link leads to and eventually find the true email address of the spammer.  (for example: okanaganlakebc.ca properties could lead you to anonymouswebsite.com)

2.  You can copy the link text while you are in the properties dialogue box by holding down your left mouse button and then drag your mouse across the text of the link to highlight the link text. Then let go of your mouse and in the top menu click on edit and then copy.  It is now on your clipboard ready for pasting somewhere else. 

3.  Then go to a domain name registrar like http://www.reg.ca/ and put your cursor where you want to paste the link text.  In this case put your cursor pretending you are searching to see if your spammers website is already taken and registered.  Then again in the top menu, click on "edit" and then "paste". You should see your link text where you put your cursor. Then click "submit".

4. Then click on the "Whois Taken" text beside the address of the website that is attacking you. This page is where you will find the true email address of the spammer.

5. Once you have the email address copy and paste or type it into the form to report them.  The spammers email address and/or website address will be posted onto the internet and where other spammers can harvest the email address from our website, and spam the spammer right back.

 

You can also report the offending website address to the registrar of the website for instance:

For officialstarsite.com you would

1.  Go to http://www.reg.ca/ and pretend you are searching to see if a domain name is taken for the domain name for example officialstarsite.com.   

2.  Then click on the "Whois Taken" text beside the address of the website that is attacking you. Reg.ca will show you this http://www.reg.ca/whois.cgi?domain=OFFICIALSTARSITE.COM for officialstarsite.com.

3. Then you look near the top of the webpage for the registrar who in this case would be http://publicdomainregistry.com/

4.  Then you would go to publicdomainregistry.com here at their report abuse webpage https://support.publicdomainregistry.com/support/index.jsp and report officialstarsite.com as a spammer.

 

REPORT OFFENDERS IP ADDRESS TOO !!!

You can get the offenders "source ip" address (for example 123.456.789) from the offenders email message "header":
See how to show email headers in
Yahoo, HotMail, Gmail, and AOL web mail.

Outlook Express - When you are reading the email message look in the top menu and click on "File/Properties" then click the "Details" tab.  Look for the "Source" IP address, then you can post it here on this website.

Mozilla Thunderbird - When you are reading the email message look in the top menu and click on "View/Message Source".  Look for "Received: from source [71.97.249.5]", then type the IP address of the source into the form.

How To Find the Sender's Original IP Address Using Email Message Headers

 

Here is something else you can try that Telus abuse sent me (Spam Pal).  Its a software program.  Click on the dog below to go to SpamPal.org website.

 

The Do's and Don'ts regarding your email address

NEW! Here is a website where you can report abuse to the spammers service provider.  All you need is the IP address of the spammer.  You type in the IP address (example of IP address 102.134.38.77) of the spammer into the text box on this website and then the website tells you the email address of the spammers service provider, which you can use to email the service provider to tell them of the abuse.  All you need is the spammers IP address which you can find in the emails header.  When you are looking at the email you find the email header by clicking in the top menu of your email program on view and then source you should see the spammers IP address.  Here are more instructions on view/source if you are lost at this point.  Sometimes there is more then one IP address listed when your looking at view/source so look at the date and time and use the IP address that has the first or oldest time and not the last or latest time.  Here is the website where you type in the IP address  http://www.robotstxt.org/iplookup.html
This website also tells you the range of IP addresses that the service provider has registered so if you are a webmaster you can deny the range of IP addresses in your control panel.  If you are a webmaster you could set up your htaccess file in cPanel's file manager to stop bots.  If you use CPanel and Frontpage ... here is an example of okanaganlakebc.ca's .htaccess file.  Just copy and paste it replacing your own htaccess file and then change these three longer lines to say your server info.  You will know what to type here by looking at your old htaccess file ... just copy it.
