I keep getting mail from 'Adriana'. 'Hi I like your profile on Facebook. You're cute. Get back to me'.
The thing is that I don't have a facebook account.

My Adriana always opens with, "Hey, Babe, I guess you aren't getting my emails....."

Spam mails has always been a part of my everyday. I guess it has been part of the routine. Mind you the email account I am using is not a general one (gmail, yahoo or aol) and has been designated by the company. I wonder how they managed to send spam mails in a unique email address as such.

I think they are getting email addresses from organizations you're affiliated with like your credit card company, mailing lists that you're enrolled to, something like that.

The spam problem seems to be worsening so our company has decided to take action. They're hiring Parachute to help us with the spam. Hopefully it works because it's so annoying.
