[DNS] Where to report AU Spam

I was quite amazed myself.
I had someone spamming my mobile phone with SMS messages (via internet).
Found out the ISP of the company involved - in the UK!!. Sent a message with
the details, got a couple of replies from people in the organisation and
never got an SMS again. Truly amazing...

Interesting that you find reporting spam to the ISP the most effective
method.

After having worked for an ISP and having sent out many abuse letters to
other
ISP's my experience says the complete opposite.

This holds doubly true for anyone "large", ie Telstra, TPG, Optus and so on.

Thankyou for the suggestion anyway, i'll send a copy to them anyway. Its
always worth trying.

Regards,
Lee
