I was on the Federal Trade Commision (FTC) Spam (http://www.ftc.gov/spam/) site reading about consumer fraud. There's a link you can forward Spam to to help law enforcement take action. It may or may not help, but if everyone did it maybe something would get done.

Do you receive lots of junk email messages from people you don't know? It's no surprise if you do. As more people use email, marketers are increasingly using email messages to pitch their products and services. Some consumers find unsolicited commercial email - also known as "spam" - annoying and time consuming; others have lost money to bogus offers that arrived in their email in-box.
This website has information about the Federal Trade Commission's recent law enforcement actions against deceptive commercial email and spammers' responsibilities under the CAN-SPAM law. In the "For Consumers" section, you'll find tips on how to reduce the amount of spam email in your in-box.
If you get spam email that you think is deceptive, forward it to spam@uce.gov. The FTC uses the spam stored in this database to pursue law enforcement actions against people who send deceptive email.

Like I always say...spamalamadingdong

Seriously, I don't get hardly any spam. I just don't go many places here on the net, and never in any chatrooms.
