This is unfortunately becoming a very common problem. You should place
the people and companies which do this on a mental list as people or
companies NEVER to do business with since it shows a total lack of ethics
and civility on their part.

There's not much that can be done. I have occassionally mailbombed
(sending them thousands of large files) people who've persisted in sending
such junk to my personal account but that's not a very Christian response
I'm afraid. Sending complaints to their Internet provider may help but
only if they're accessing the Internet through a commercial provider.
