Forward it to his postmaster. Most providers have anti-spam clauses these
days. As a result, most spammers nowadays ask for snailmail or fax
replies, 'cause they know they won't get your email.
You can't. There are too many ways onto the Net. There has been talk in
the past of a blacklist, but I think it foundered on the shoals of libel.

No. The FCC has nothing to do with the Net. If he solicits replies by
snailmail (and I don't think he did), then it may be a chain letter (see
http://www.usps.gov/websites/depart/inspect/chainlet.htm). If not, the
only legal recourse is if it's actual fraud & you get burned.
