Go to the site in question. Look at the "Log-In" box; is there a Hyperlink that says "Forgot Your Password",
or words to that effect?
The password is connected to the e-ddress used to register.
Click the link, and follow the directions for sending a new password.
Then sign in with the new password, and delete your registration info.
As for the smeghead who signed you up, next time he leaves his car window open, take 4 cans of Barbasol and....

Those type of sites are bad about refusing even when you comply. You may have to create an account with Yahoo, google, hotmail,.. and change the email acount to the new throw away account.
That is if they will send you the password.

If I might put IMHO on this. do as advised and leave the e-mail account you now have. Joining Yahoo.com or any of the 1,000 other free e-mail accounts. If this spam continues contact your ISP report to security or whom ever will listen.
It might take a little while to get out from under this crap but a new e-mail account is the start and let the old one know your unsubscribing by deleting your profile and any and all personel info A.S.A.P.
Good luck.... Prison isn't the way to get out of this situation. You might not like the entertainment they offer. Keep a cool mind and prevail.

It is a good idea to have several E-mail addresses. One primary (preferably not tied to your ISP) for trusted friends, family, and associates; several secondary ones for any on-line activity such as registrating products, taking surveys, etc.. The latter addresses then can be simply deleted if they become bothersome with SPAM and other crud. With all the free E-mail services from Yahoo, MSN, Google and many others, these can be easily gotten and just as easily deleted.
