Getting Illegal Spammers and Hackers Kicked
Off the Internet
So now you are probably wondering what you should do
with all the usual, non-threatening illegal spam you receive on a
daily basis. Should you just put up with it? Should you block it?
Why not just delete it?
Even though most of these spams are ridiculous, and
are good for a laugh, they are still trying to cheat people, and some
unfortunate souls are still going to get swindled. After all, if a
spammer sends out a million email spams odds are they are going to
The answer to this problem is to complain to spammers'
ISPs to get them thrown off the Internet.
What are Internet Service Providers (ISPs) doing
about Illegal Spam and Hackers?
Illegal spam and bulk mail costs ISPs and all Internet
users wasted time and money. ISPs hate bulk email because it uses
valuable server space and they have to spend time and resources to
clean it off their servers. If ISPs are not responsive in stopping
illegal attempts to use their servers, other ISPs will blacklist them
and block their email transmissions. Eventually they could even be
forced out of business.
ISPs hate hackers because a hacker can bring down or
damage their network. This causes the ISPs monetary loss to repair
their network and needless to say it doesn't make their customers
very happy either.
To keep their users from hacking or sending illegal
spam, all US ISPs have Acceptable Use Policies. These policies are
usually very strict as most ISPs have a very low tolerance of hackers
and spammers (for examples of acceptable use policies see Time
As the spammers' ISPs know their real identity, they
can take action against them. They can fine the wrong doers, report
them to law enforcement agencies, and cancel their Internet accounts
and email addresses.
This whole process is very encouraging, however the
problem is that spammers and hackers go to great lengths to conceal
their true identities and their ISP. So, you have to do some homework
to find out which ISP is providing Internet services to the spammer.
