You can subscribe to IP blacklists and block anything that comes from the addresses listed. Some ISPs do this automatically anyway.
The only problem is where the IP address is shared across several mail users on the same server as bona fide emails can get blocked as well.
Otherwise, I think they're just a fact of life these days until technology and law enforcement catch up with the shysters (has that ever happened?)
Even regular post has never acheived control over scammers - plenty of dodgy prize draw and timeshare offers available!
