Hi All, to report an e-mail, you need what is called the "headers" As an example, let us take a yahoo account and if you look at the bottom right, you will see a sign that says "full headers" if you click this you will see a lot of letters and numbers like this-- X-Apparently-To: xxxxyahoo.com.au via 188.8.131.52; Thu, 07 Jan 2007 03:48:24 -0700 X-Originating-IP: [184.108.40.206] Return-Path: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Authentication-Results: mta184.mail.mud.yahoo.com from=yahoo.co.in; domainkeys=pass (ok) Received: from 220.127.116.11 (HELO web8601.mail.in.yahoo.com) (18.104.22.168) by mta184.mail.mud.yahoo.com with SMTP; Thu, 27 Oct 2005 03:48:24 -0700 Received: (qmail 56803 invoked by uid 60001); 27 Oct 2005 10:48:22 -0000 DomainKey-Signature: a=rsa-sha1; q=dns; c=nofws; s=s1024; d=yahoo.co.in; h=Message-ID:Received:From:Subject:To: In-Reply-To:MIME-Version:Content-Type:Content-Transfer-Encoding; b=Q/2mGbGLMaCjB/b3bWVISO5BASvLvErdKCIGpDpyrd1A/45YrijjqCP prTATXgDM8sH284L6pPB7Pe1CSeYQRhpR3sf3pnVohG9pjpjzOTWq4 xiulBk+OhnrDh2RK0H68+7zGuu0ZEnrvtCFKtQic9EZIG4vqSfohkhbm+ PE7OQ= ; Message-ID: <email@example.com> Received: from [22.214.171.124] by web8601.mail.in.yahoo.com via HTTP; Thu, 27 Oct 2005 11:48:22 BST Date: Thu, 27 Oct 2005 11:48:22 +0100 (BST) From: Send an Instant Message "buzzen fabian" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Add to Address BookAdd to Address Book Yahoo!

To: " xxxx" <email@example.com> In-Reply-To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="0-1317554672-1130410102=:56490" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit Content-Length: 1722 I have put xxx where your name will appear! you then send this, with a copy of the message to email@example.com you will probably get back an automated message acknowledging your e-mail , and in a day or so (depending on them ) you should then get a message saying that they have checked, and in this case appropriate action has been taken! If you then send an e-mail to the scammer, you should get it back saying something like "the perrson does not have an account with us. This means that the account has been closed and you can claim a "kill" and give your self a pat on the back!! as you have just saved some one from losing their money to this scammer! If you have any questions then please contact, Thank you "De Master Yoda" Just a reminder; This has been posted to assist you in closing down a "phone" scammers account. Please use caution if thinking about closing down any other type scammers account! as they can easily set up another one, and the old one MAY be being used by a baiter!! so in this case it could be counter productive!
