Verizon and spam reports

I have tried repeatedly by private email directly to Verizon and I have 
contacted an ex-UUnet employee, but so far, it would appear that Verizon is 
running an unattended and unmaintained "spam reporting" system with emails 
like this:

>For questions about these reports please email: 
>email_report at
>NOTE: there is no need to acknowledge these reports, the email address: 
>email_report at is purely for questions.
>Some frequently asked questions about this process and its fallout can be

>IP: x.x.1.242
>TIMESTAMP: Thu, 05 Jun 2008 17:03:01 +0300
>  GMT-0000

Problem is they are basing who to send the spam report on an email address 
that was changed in whois about 2 years ago and it would appear no one is 
home to update their "spam reporting" database.

Is anyone here from Verizon who can reach out to the people sending these 
emails to have them fix their database?
