Thanks guys - the "nice" person person sent me one too - I was not as nice in return and banned them.

If you get one in the future, please forward to me, unless of course you want to engage in this kind of a relationship :)

Thanks guys!
Let me know if you get any new ones - we had 2 spammers so far and they each have sent about 50-100 messages.

They were all from Mauritius (wow, go figure)

I banned the ip for probably entire country trying to stop this thing...

Thank you for reporting.
