    Every so often I get a few for a couple of days then it stops
    Lately they seem to be about Corona Virus stuff but I never read them
    Probably miracle cures
    For peace of mind, resign as general manager of the universe

    A few weeks ago, I went to my messages and there were about 30 spam messages. Most of them had unrecognizable strings of characters. I just deleted them all. Didn't have any today.

    When I logged in today, there were THREE with the exact same subject line. They were trying to sell "virus supplies". I only looked at one then deleted all three.

    I get them constantly.....I just delete them.

    Does seem to be getting worse though, got two of them today and has gone from one or two a week to about every other time I log in.

    I feel your pain. It's gotta be harsh when spammers ignore you....
