Maybe that sounded more 'flippant' than it was supposed to. When I
investigate notifying the phishentity such as PayPal or banks or
whatever about how to notify them that they are a phish -- I very often
discover that either they don't want to hear about it at all, or they
want the phish recipient to carefully examined all of the examples of
phishes and if their phish is the same as what is on record, that they
don't want to hear about it, or that the phishentity wants a phish
submitted in some particular way.
It is not at all unusual that some entity doesn't want to hear any more
about the latest spam on something because they already have their own
agenda about how they want to deal with it, and it doesn't include
processing anymore spam information.

Did you miss the part of the links where I posted the lawsuits which
Pfizer has engaged in two different families of attacks, those who are
treading on their tradename in the name of the website and those who are
selling counterfeit drugs?

What I say isn't very important about determining whether or not Pfizer
wants you to send copies of your spam. My point was that I turned quite
a few Pfizer pages, probably about 30, and on none of those pages did
they provide me with an email address to send them a copy of a spam.
Somewhere along the way they suggested notifying some other enitity,
such as the FDA. They also suggested 'contacting' Pfizer in 'your
country' - but they weren't talking about email and they weren't talking
about submitting spam.
I'm just telling you what the website sez and where it sez it.
