I've tried several times to unsubscribe from spam.
If after 10 days the unsubscribe button doesn't work, you can report the email.
Forward it to: spam@uce.gov

you realize that the "unsubscribe" link in the spam just verifies that they have a valid email address so they send you even more and sell your address to a verified email list for more money and you get even more spam, right?

Never press the unsubscribe link.

That is against the law which is why I'm reporting the violation.

I CC'd the contact information for the company along with the email I sent to the FTC.
I actually got a response from the company saying the button does work.
I saved the email message and tried it again - we'll see.

The second spammer contacted me and directed me to someone who will address the problem.
