I've only identified two messages from an Australian operator.  I did 
look into the procedure for making a complaint, which involves a bit 
of mucking around.

I tracked down the company which sent the emails and gave them a call 
asking how they got the addresses (one of which was a spamtrap).  They 
  called back a couple of days later basically to ask me to repeat the 
details of my complaint, but that was the last I heard from them.
