Signal Spam is a non for profit organisation and a public/private partnership promoting a trustworthy network of actors united to fight Spam.
Among its contributors are French Authorities & Law Enforcement Agencies, main French Internet Services Providers and E-Mails Senders, Security and Reputation Companies, Consumers and Marketing Unions, etc.
Its core function is to collect pieces of reporting coming from internet End Users regarding everything they consider to be a spam, whether it is legitimate advertising no longer wanted or cybercrime threats. The gathered complaints are then dispatched to the best suited Signal Spam’s members to take the required action, ranging from unlisting End Users from Marketers and E-Mail senders lists to legal procedures against spammers and botnets takedowns.
Your pieces of reporting help us understand spam and its evolution. From a piece of garbage that you would normally get rid of, you can make a useful contribution and turn it into an ore of useful clues to fight spam and related cybercrime threats such as scams, frauds, fishing attempts, and “botnets zombification”.
