Someone is trying to use my account

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this. I've gotten this email twice today. The IP is not mine and I hadn't logged into this account in over a month. I tried looking for a place to report abuse, but was unable to find anything. Who should I notify?

Re: Someone is trying to use my account

It's a pretty well known attempted spamming attack by some dumb spambot (read all about it elsewhere, eg over on http://www.iaudiophile.net/forums/). The user's ISP doesn't seem to want to close him down for whatever reason.

Either will work. Try

Re: Emails

Same here...

IP 74.53.243.34 + two more.

I took a glance at the list over who is on line; there where 3 members + 343 guests, most of which are Yahoo! Slurp Spider, viewing threads and member profiles. Take a look for yourself under the tab Quick Links/Who's Online.
