    Report it, forward it to the FTC at spam@uce.gov and to the abuse desk of the sender's ISP.

    For yahoo, report them here: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ya...

    Choose Fraud as the reason for the violation you're reporting on.

    Also, if the E-mail appears to be impersonating a bank or other company or organization, forward the message to the actual organization.

    Address for reporting abuse from Yahoo accounts is

    network-abuse@cc.yahoo-inc.com
