Has anyone else noticed a sudden increase in spam today? My filters usually trap an average of 15-20 each day. Today I've had 45 so far and still counting.

I wish I had so few on a normal day

I must be lucky,only 3 today but then again thats about the norm, 5 or 6 on the worst days.

No I have not seen any increase today still my usual dozen or so

168 yesterday. There's certainly been an increase in the last few days. I'm even getting Russian-language spam.

on my main address. I changed my email to a combination of numbers and letters and this seems to have cut it right down.

I did get a Bank phish a few days ago. Sent it to the bank who agreed it was not valid. Bit of a giveaway really, I don't bank with Scotish Banks.

I usually get 20 to 30 items of spam each day. I just delete them with a couple of clicks, less bother than having to create another Email account. No bother, whats all the fuzz about?

No fuzz (fuss?), just curious.

I've had quite a few*, but not in the past week or so.

*ecards that is — not beers.
