Spam Complaint

In this section of the Anti-Spam site you can make complaints about spam you have received through email or by TXT on your mobile phone, register your details with us if you anticipate making further complaints, make changes to your details registered with us, or recover your Registration ID.

Please read the following statement before you make a spam complaint:

Commercial messages must only be sent when you have given express consent, inferred consent, or deemed consent.

If you think the sender of the message may have been acting on one of these types of consent, please unsubscribe from the message (commercial messages must contain a functioning unsubscribe facility).

If you receive further messages from the sender after five working days of requesting to be unsubscribed, if there is no unsubscribe facility, or if you don’t believe the sender had any consent to contact you, please register your complaint.
