Increase in spam email!

Is it just me or is anyone else seeing a marked increase in spam emails purporting to be from McAfee, Norton and various Bitcoin companies?

Been like this for around a month now and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. I’m beginning to get just a little fed up with blocking senders and moving stuff to the spam folder.

Re: Increase in spam email!

I'm getting the occasional ones - maybe 3-4 a week on average, so nothing horrendous (and certainly nothing like the 'blip' in January when I, like many others, was getting at least 10-20 or more an hour one day until BT fixed it).

They mainly seem to be from gmail addresses, so I can only block the sender and not the domain as I have genuine contacts with gmail address (which I allow though and send any other emails from a gmail account to a special 'spam/filter' folder I set up myself so I can check them first before deciding whether to add them to my safe senders list and move it to my inbox or report it as spam and block the sender).
