Well the spammers are having a laugh

Perusing my spam folder I found this:

From btbusiness AT bnetc DOT com

New BT Bill

Your bill amount is: 968.67 GBP. This doesn't include any amounts brought forward from any other bills.

We've put your latest BT bill for you to view. Link to payload on datadirectory DOT org

 

Since I haven't had a BT account for many years I don't think I will bother paying them £1K even if I had I wouldn't be clinking on that link.

Was that sent to a PN account? Have you got the spam catcher turned on on your dashboard if it was? That kind of thing usually gets caught on mine and I just get an email saying I can retrieve it if I really want to.

Why not just make a new e-mail then it will reduce all the spam.

I said right at the start:
Perusing my spam folder I found this:

 

Not something I do often but I like to check for false positives. And no it was on my gmail account, correctly marked as spam
