Are you getting fed up with receiving the paypal scam email?

The one that says that you need to send £3 to the address at the top of the list?

I am.

What I've listed below is the quick way to report these people to their ISP and to Paypal, as I get more ISP's Terms of Service, I'll be adding more.
Remember that when you forward the email to the relevant ISP, you need to send it with the full headers.


AOL

The part of the agreement that the email sender is breaking is Section 4

4. Online Conduct And Content

Your account must be used only for lawful purposes and in a manner which does not in our reasonable opinion infringe the law or the legal rights (e.g. copyright, privacy or reputation) of any person or entity. If anyone using your AOL account breaches these principles, we may take action against you or your account, ranging from a warning about the breach to cancellation of your AOL account.

Email. Your account must not be used to send unsolicited bulk email ("junk" email or "spam"), nor may you use any area of AOL to collect information, including screen names, about AOL members for unsolicited communications. For information and instructions on how to report Spam, visit Keyword: Spam. AOL may take any reasonable measures to prevent spam from entering, utilizing or remaining within our systems - these may inhibit or block access to email which is not unsolicited bulk email. We also employ technology such as virus-screening to protect our systems which may result in the deletion or alteration of email attachments.

Paypal

The part of the agreement that the email sender is breaking is here

Pyramid Schemes
Pyramid schemes, including "Gifting Clubs" and "Ponzi" schemes, involve the exchange of money in relation to the process of enrolling other people into the scheme. PayPal includes in its definition of "pyramid schemes" any system in which a hierarchy is created by people joining under others who joined previously, and in which those who join make payments to those above them in the hierarchy ("upline"). PayPal considers online payment randomizers to be a type of pyramid scheme because the majority of commissions are paid for recruitment of new members, and typically operate by random placement within the program.
