Really strange things in my Inbox lately…My Yahoo! account is filling up with German language subject lines that is obviously spam. So is my assistant’s Inbox. I have the upgraded Yahoo! account which generally means I get 1 or 2 spam messages that creep into my Inbox a month…But in the past 3 days I’ve had over 50. Don’t know what to do but keep hitting the SPAM button…
I manage the website for a small gov’t agency, including answering/sorting the website mail. This morning, the mailbox was full of German spam–over 300 pieces of it!–and one or two fresh ones keep popping in at intervals while I’m working.
Haven’t noticed anything in German, but for weeks (or longer) I’ve been getting anywhere from one to ten Russian-looking items a day. They go into my “known spam” or “suspect email” folders so it’s just a matter of deleting them as a group, but if I choose to see the subject line (which I can’t really read as such) and elect to click on the message, as often as not the message includes something that translates to “Windows” in the text. I’ve meant to ask if others are plagued by similar stuff.
Uh, yeah. Me. I got 38 pieces of German spam at my work address that maybe ten people (business related) in the world know about. However, if any of it hit my yahoo or otherwise web-based accounts, I don’t know, because I haven’t checked any of those yet.
This is the first time in three years I’ve received any form of spam at my work email. Very odd.
