I quickly googled "BV. Promotions" and I found this site : 419 Legal.org - Law Enforcement
Which is home for South African Police Services. This site is great, I strongly urge anyone to check out their services. Plus the more of us out there who contribute this "spam" to their archives, the better evidence they will have to continue their investigations. Here is the mission statement from their website:

419 Legal is a website dedicated to fighting 419 Advance Fee Fraud.

We collect information on fraudsters, their methods, their victims and the tools they use. Much of this information is supplied by a dedicated group of informers who's information has helped to get many fake websites taken down and save people from falling victim to these scams.

This website is also acting as a discussion point between Law Enforcement, Anonymous Informers and Business Professionals in order to fight this type of fraud more effectively.

In order to contact us or report a scam, please send an e-mail to 419@419legal.org , Scam letters can also be sent.

I myself have been overwhelmed by spam as of late. I hope you find the email addresses & site info helpful.

Down with spam - fight to ban!!!

Emails like this one really make email marketing much harder. An email campaign can provide clients and potential clients with great information on products, specific markets, or even particular businesses. Focusing on clientele while monitoring their wants and needs can be difficult, especially with scams like this out there.
