the moron who is sending the crap is getting a "nice" autoresponder but i think the spam is coming from a no reply type email account and i don't want to open them because there will be a link back in the emails.I keep on reporting them as spam to my provider as well.
If the worst comes i will just phone the owner.I just hope google picks up on his details and the spammers pick it up from there.This f'wit needs to get a taste of his own spam

You should be able to block the email address in your email settings.

Is there an 'Unsubscribe' button at the bottom of the spam email?

Smilecity isn't a scam, and the address "bcheng@emailcash.com.au" is on the domain registration entry for smilecity.co.nz so I say it's legitimate.

Don't know why you're getting the emails though - but watch out they may not actually be from smilecity!

They may have a faked sender address and contain links that redirect to phishing scam websites instead of the real thing.

I have been a member of Smile City for some time and so far have collected $390 in cold hard cash from their reward points and expect another $100 in the next month or so. Not a fortune but it is money for jam.. They don't ask for my name, address and bath night so I am quite happy to earn a few bucks doing the product surveys they send me from time to time. A buck is a buck to a pensioner and it isn't hard to say whether I prefer x brand coffee to y brand tea.
