What you can do:
The one-two punch against SPAM
If an anti-worker group like the Freedom Foundation sends you an email without your permission, they are likely violating their email provider’s terms of service, and maybe even the law. Follow these two steps to report the SPAM to authorities.
- FORWARD THE EMAIL
Send to these three addresses, all in one email:
email@example.com – The "Freedom" Foundation's email provider
firstname.lastname@example.org – The Federal Trade Commission
email@example.com – Oregon State Attorney General
“The Freedom Foundation/Opt Out Today sent me this SPAM at work without my permission. Please ask them to stop sending emails to me.”
- MARK THE EMAIL AS ‘SPAM’ OR ‘JUNK’
In most cases, this automatically sends a warning message to their email provider.
