I got an interesting spam e-mail to one of my domains. Basically was something about having a distant relative pass away and I was to inherit some money and to contact them ASAP so that I could get the funds. Naturally it was being held in a Nigerian bank, lol.
So I used a little creative trickery. I went to a site that gives a very temporary e-mail address and then used yahoo to setup so that I could use that address to send out creating a "black hole" as once the e-mail is done everything is dead. I told them that I was very glad to find this as I was in extreme need and to please contact me via phone or snail mail. I gave them the address and phone number of:
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20535-0001
This is the address and phone number of the FBI. . . After clicking send I laughed for hours and every person I told has laughed as well. I still have to wonder what the scammer thought when they made a phone call and had someone answer "Federal Bureau of Investigation, How can I direct your call?"
