you do it via Internet Explorer ...

How to report a scam

You can use Microsoft tools to report a suspected scam.

Internet Explorer. While you are on a suspicious site, click the Safety button or menu in Internet Explorer 8 and point to SmartScreen Filter. Then click Report Unsafe Website and use the web page that is displayed to report the website.

If like me, you don't use IE, then just tell you email program to mark it as spam and go about your merry way.

Microsoft won't be able to do much anyway. :)

Hi Eavesdropper, welcome to PCR.

Probably not necessary in this particular instance... but, for "internet crime" (fraud, financially-motivated scams, etc.,) there is also Action Fraud. :)
