  • The Spamhaus Project has been tracking and logging junkmail and scams for more than 2 decades at spamhaus.org.

    The sources for these messages are invariably hacked systems and the webhosting boxes are hacked too. Network admins around the world rely on Spamhaus to reject connections from compromised and spam/scam friendly networks.

    Spamhaus have the contacts and the clout to get those fixed, they also have the ability to find the _real_ sources behind the scams.

    You have the clout to actually get something done when the sources are tracked down.

    Talk to the Spamhaus guys. You need their assistance to track down the culprits - and they could do with some publicity for their work.
  • FYI: The fakead@moneysavingexpert.com is rejecting forwarded fakes - because they're being classified as fakes.

    It makes reporting (with headers) somewhat difficult.....
