Stocks & Shares Spam

Keep getting loads of mail from stocks and shares. This is on hijacked other peoples emails. So everytime its a different sender
Anyone know how to get rid of this as its becoming tiresome. Now have over 100 blocked senders through this spam

Drastic step, change your email address.

Ignore them, do not bounce or reply or even open them.

Apart from that not much else that you can do.
For the future, you should protect your main email address, suggest getting a throw away address such as hotmail or Yahoo and use this to any sites that request it to verify or register only, but who you would not normally deal with.

Cannot get keywords or block the sender
This guy copies a screendump into the file so words are not recognised. So part of the original email is forwarded to you with a clip attached with stocks & shares info a load of crap
The sender is rarely the same sender. Who ever he / she is has hijacked loads of sites around the world
