About a week ago I began receiving 5 or 10 spams per day at work from the same source. It rapidly escalated and now they’re sending me 60 or 70 per day, every one infected with a virus.
Question 1: What the hell is the sender trying to accomplish? The messages claim to involve Disney screen savers, Britney, KOF fighting games, love, sex and romance. But no one in his/her right mind would actually buy something from a sender of so many spams, right? Plus, they’ve all got a virus. So it must be just harassment for kicks and nothing else, right? I don’t think it’s personal, because another guy at work gets them too, unless it’s someone with a gripe against our company. Am I correct that the sender probably just gets a kick out of harassing people and trying to destroy their computers?
Question 2: What can one do about it? I’ve been sending the sender info to our company computer guy regularly to review (without opening the messages). He tells me it’s tricky because they’re using dynamic domains, changing their addresses, etc., and that ISPs generally won’t do anything about it. If that’s the case, do I have no choice but to simply delete 70 virus infected spams per day for the rest of my tenure at this job?
