Firstly "they" do not have your email.  These email were forwarded to you by SpamCop. The host of the spammer, replied to spam reports they received, spam report id 6658527015 and 6658527017. SpamCop then forwarded the responses to you, as the submitter of the original spam.

When SpamCop sends a report to the spammer hosts or others, the report comes from nnnnnnnnn{AT}reports.SpamCop.net.  The reports.spamcop.net mailbox is the original report id number.

You will notice in the header of each message forwarded to you, the TO: nnnnnnnnn{AT}reports.SpamCop.net  which includes the report id.  You can take that report id and find the original report.  Login to your spamcop account, click on the <past reports> tab and inter the report id number to view the original spam report.

Of course, if you reply to either of these emails as they suggest, THEN they WILL have your email address.  Unfortunately, there is no way to continue the conversation with the source of the spam through SpamCop.

I also removed your email address for your post. Not all who review this forum are of good intent.

Thanks for the explanation, it was just alarming when these mails popped up, they seem somewhat threatening.
