    This is kind of a dilemma. The website has links to onlinepillguide.com, which are dirtbags registered in Russia. The homepage http://noveltydiamondtools.co.in/ looks like it could really be for diamond novelty tools, although most of their links don't work. Also the domain was first registered 10-Jan-2010. So it's possible they are part of the scam, or it's possible that their website has been hacked by the Russians. ("Canadian phamaceutical" sites are not in the pharmaceutical business; they are in the credit card fraud business and rarely in Canada.)

    Since your account is already trashed you might want to notify noveltydiamondtools.co.in

    Their stated contact address is:

    novelty_chn@yahoo.co.in

    Whois listed contact is:

    admin@eindiahosting.com

    Okay, maybe that solves their problem. What about yours. The spammers are forging your address, and every delivery failure bounces to you. Can you report the sender of the spam? Maybe. It depends on how much data is in the delivery failure notice. Some mailservers will include the sender's full headers. That is what you want. (You don't need the full headers for the delivery failure notice per se, because the server bouncing those to you is not the offender.) If the body of the failure notice contains the full headers of the message that bounced, you can look up the IP numbers in it. Then send an abuse report to the IP of the sender of the message that had forged your address.

    Look up the IP numbers using the whois of the regional internet registry (RIR). There are five in the world, and the one to use depends on the host's location. It is often a good idea to start with ARIN, because if the numbers are from outside its region, it can identify the correct region and RIR for you to try next.

    With so many spams, where do you begin? Start with the most recent.
