How to Report Spam Mail to the U.S. Department of Justice

Spam is one of the main prices we pay for the worldwide, instantaneous communications we gain through Internet email. As most of us spend more and more time online-depending upon email communications for our business and personal relationships-businesses spend more and more effort trying to market to us, there. By there, we mean; not only, on online company sites and affiliate networks; but also, through our email inboxes.

With this in mind, it is helpful to have a solid working knowledge of exactly what spam is. While all of us have it-in our business and personal email accounts-few of us can discern what can be reported to an authority, such as the U.S. Department of Justice; and what should not. While no spam seems like a positive thing; in many cases, it is perfectly legitamite.

Where the difference exists is in the very definition of spam: email communication that is unsolicited and/or deceptive. So, by this definition, receiving too many e-newsletters from a particular online company that you signed up to be notified from, would not be considered spam. On the other hand, if a party emails you, and you have not requested this; it is an unsolicited email from spammers. Moreover, if someone poses as one of your contacts, or tries to get you to offer personal information-these are also illegal spam criminals. It should be noted also, that in many cases, spammers employ spam bots to send bulk email to thousands of addresses all at once-so recognizing signs of a generalized spam email is also vital. This understood, how do you report spam mail to the DOJ?

With the proper definition of spam in mind, you can probably think of millions of good examples of spam-all unsolicited or deceptive-and certainly, illegal. So, now what?
