Pump and Dump spams are part of a financial fraud scheme. . Aside of the usual spam reporting one can also report the practice to the appropriate official contacts.

Due to the global nature of this spam one needs to have a list of which address to report to.

USA: SEC:
  • SEC wants your stock related spam
  • Forward the spam to enforcement(AT)sec.gov
  • You get a standardized reply for every report, typically during the next business day
Germany: Bafin
  • poststelle-ffm(AT)bafin.de
Australia: ASIC (oversight) and ASX (stock exchange)
  • ASIC has a form, way too impractical for dealing with individual spam messages
  • info(AT)asx.com.au

If you have confirmed and working responsive addresses for other stock exchanges, please let us know.
