I reported a googlemail address 8 days ago ...

I forwarded the scam email to google

Yesterday I received another scam email and tested the address from an anonymous address and it did not bounce (I.E. failed address). In fact, early this morning I received a reply from this googlemail address.

Would scam victims have a class action case since Google did not terminate this account?

Why would Google allow this scammer's account to remain active?

I wonder how many people were scammed because of it.

I have again notified Google and this time I copied their upstream provider level3. I did receive a reply back from level3

You don't have the full email headers, without which, it's impossible to see where the email really came from. It's not hard to fake where an email came from.

I have been deciphering email headers since 1992. The email came from the IP that I stated and the next IP above it in the header belongs to my ISP (where my email address is from).

But feel free to try the googlemail address yourself and you will get the same scam reply.
