Alan, (and others)
There is a service called SpamCop that I find is effective for dealing with
this. I got at least one outfit in big-time trouble by reporting them. (Can
you say lawsuit) The only problem is you need to report them one at a time
and with all the crap I get, it gets time consuming. Don't bother trying to
unsubscribe, it's usually a ploy to confirm your email address is a good
http://spamcop.net/ It's free, but you need to get an authorization code.
They also have an upgrade pay service for a nominal charge.
I have been getting similar solicitations for selling cars.
