Spam emails, really sudden onset

All of a sudden, 2 days ago, I'm getting spam emails. Haven't had any since I went cable instead of dial up. I can do the "block sender" thing, so hopefully it'll subside, but how come I went a month or so without any spam emails and all of a sudden am getting a few a day again? Mostly they are related to making investments.

Make any enemies lately? Banned members up to no good maybe? Spam is a pain in the butt. Our wonderful new system at work has a "Junk" file you can dump the stuff into, but it's not enabled, so none of it is blocked in subsequent mailings. Fun!

It's not touting US symbol SBNS, is it? I've been getting them for a week. Apparently a lot of others are too.

Cool Sprite project, by the way! TR6 man here... just got one of the Moss tube-shock conversions to replace the Armstrongs. Winter project!

I have been getting a lot as well. Luckly Google so far has been nearly flawless in filtering it out so I don't see any. It just goes in the trash and is deleted every couple of days.

None today. The one I most recently got was for LITL, and the one before that too. The two before that were both for IDSM.OB, so they seem to come in pairs like that. Stupid subject lines:
"impersonation", "cancel facial", etc

Somebody's still day-trading based on spam emails.

The stock I quoted, SBNS, has this short-term history:
open high low close
today: 1.80 2.83 1.75 1.93
-1: 1.38 1.65 1.00 1.65
-2: 1.16 1.34 1.11 1.34
-3: 1.06 1.14 1.03 1.14
-4: 0.72 1.01 0.71 0.98
-5: 0.72 0.72 0.65 0.65

(This is all public information.)
Looks like the dumping has proceeded as planned.
