There has been some publicity with the first link, doing most radio stations who have tech spot and forward your dodgy mails to them.
Just for completion of this thread, the BT website now gives clear & detailed instructions about abuse and phishing e-mails here : http://home.bt.com/techgadgets/internet/how-to-deal-with-fraudulent-emails-11363932621450
The basic bottom line is :
"Forward the email to email@example.com, then delete it" ; or depending on the content,
"if you receive a phishing email that purports to be from BT, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org "
If you hover your mouse over the email address or check the email header you will probably find that it does not come from the email address that it purports to come from.
If you receive a phishing email that purports to be from BT, forward it to email@example.com.
For other email security issues or if you believe your email account has been compromised email, for instance if your friends report receiving strange emails you didn't send email firstname.lastname@example.org
Actually your reply WAS harsh and not very helpful. Phishing and scams are the REAL world to many of us trying to protect what little we have.
You can report these emails by forwarding them to a dedicated email address for investigation
Lets try to help each other -not criticise and belittle
Kindness costs nothing 🙂
