What rubbish have we received today? Below is a partial list of the "spamvertised" domains sent to our accounts.

Note that this is a listing of spam received by us, not sent by us. We do not send unsolicited bulk email but spammers routinely forge our domain name in the From: line of their junk.

The pharmacy/replica spammers appear to have joined forces, with nearly identical emails, domain registrations and spamming patterns.
