For the last two weeks I have been getting a small but constant stream of emails (never more than 2 in a day with only one day missed) of emails in Cyrillic script which are caught in the spam filter. They appear to be coming from the sites of local entertainment places (night clubs, pubs ect.).

Should I inform the proprietors of those venues or just forget about it?

I would inform them, but not by email. They may not doing anything about it but at least you know you had the satisfaction of doing the right thing.

I was thinking of going around personally. My grand daughter used to work for one of them so I know the proprietor slightly we have also used his function room for gaming so I want to keep in with him in case we need it again.
