OK, most responses have been, reasonably so from the point of view of this
being 'Dshield', concerned with the defensive approach. I was more
interested in the offensive - rooting out the writers and distributors of
the rubbish -difficult but not impossible. Only one of the replies seemed to
feel that that was appropriate, which is surprising, given the damage.

However, I would have thought that with all the tracing and tracking effort
put in place by the many subscribers to this list, that some reporting of
these activities would have been possible. Whether such efforts result in
reports to those with the legal authority to bring criminal proceedings -
and thus 'terminate with prejudice' - take away their PCs and heavily
fine/jail or whatever, does not seem to be happening. The result is the
continuance of damage.

So, whenever I get a scam, attempted "Fill in your bank account details
here" message , I DO report it to the cover name such as Ebay or my local
bank, whose-ever name has been abused. I don't know enough about tracking
and tracing to be competent in that field, so I am grateful for your efforts
on my behalf.
    BUT, do you report the 'criminals' and end their activities, or, at
least, make life difficult for them?

        Best Wishes for continuing efforts
                Roger
                                                            End of story -
for now.
