[access-uk] Re: I am having a problem with blocking addresses of senders of unwanted e-mails which may require me to join the BCAB list if no-one on this list can help


Found this old article which may be of help, I have the email address in my
address book and just fwd all the cr*p to it, they do take action against
the offending sites and it slows them down a bit but the beggers come back
after a month or two.
Still it makes me feel like I'm hitting back a little.\

Thanks go to several readers who pointed me in the direction of the
website banksafeonline.org.uk, run by the Association of Payment
Clearing Services, which deals with safety issues relating to online
banking.

The site includes an e-mail address, reports@banksafeonline.

org.uk, and encourages people to forward any suspect messages.

Thanks. I do this anyway. I must admit though, thanks to Googlemail's very 
good spam filter, I've had little to no phishing scams, yet!
