[News Story] - Report e-mail scams

Hi All
Just seen this:
[quote="Report e-mail scams, National Fraud Authority urges"]
Millions of Britons who receive scam letters and e-mails are now being urged to forward them on just the once - to the National Fraud Authority.
The agency has launched a new operation to track down the fraudsters behind the multi-million pound industry in scam mail, but needs public input.
Details of how to forward e-mails are on the Action Fraud website.
Chief executive Dr Bernard Herdan said doing so would give "unprecedented" information about criminal activity.
"Both in terms of collecting lots of fraudulent e-mails and letters, and getting those e-mails sent to our website that we can send on to the police, that has not been possible before.

It won't alter the fact that most of these letters and emails come from outside the UK (and the rest of Europe) so there's little the police can do. It needs international support especially from those countries where it's prevalent, such as Nigeria.
