    & type the actual URL of the provider of the service (bank, Paypal, whatever) into your browser to see if there is, by some remote chance, some kind of "account management" underway.
    If not, get their abuse reporting email address, go back to the offending email, & forward it on to the genuine "service provider", including the headers.
