I have also recorded a report of these spam messages to Chennai Cybercrime Cell and Chennai City Police as a proactive measure.
Just because our Indian IT laws still does not have a concrete law to deal with this type of spam (aka) junk messages such people cause small to largescale sabotage in their own whimsical manner.
- I see the dire need of a good spam reporting to authorities is that a good format of reporting spam. In this particular protocol I have adopted the following structure in the message:
- Internet Headers

- When challenged by authorities, the PDF can be readily presented for investigation without any delays.
