I also just checked my mailwasher blacklist and it not there either which means I have never received spam from that source. It's still very intriguing why some members got it and others didn't.

Shouldn't the Bot be generating OzLotto winning combinations instead?
Buying lotto tickets costs money; using a spambot to generate millions of possible email addresses, knowing the majority of emails then sent will be rejected as invalid addresses, costs the spammer virtually nothing.

I know what you mean by that and sometimes I'll get a flood if random/generic names sent to my domain name at once but mentioning an exact website which I have an actual registration to is very specific. I have never been hit with <randomdomain>_com_au@<mydomain>.com or anything close.

Default Re: Spammed from BarginsAU

My email is my work email, which is identified by my name. The name has nothing to do with any particular forums. It's very rare that I get any spam through my work email and fordforums is the only forum that runs through that email, due to how long I have been on this forum. All other forums run through my other accounts.

I've been spammed by coles. Google emailed me and advised I upgrade my security, all that involved was confirming my current contact details and not 12 hours later, I've received 2 emails from coles. Never had them before, I suppose it could be a coincidence but I know someone who says there are NO coincidences

talk bout an invasion of privacy and we invite them in
you know something isn't right when you open a radio app on your new phone these days and it says (if you read it before accepting) this app needs control of XXXX , but why when its just to play the radio
or when you want voice command , apparently its just for your voice algorithms , like I had that problem before ! and has nothing to do with accessing my contacts list
they track every thing we do now from us not the sites we visit
