A lot of Outlook spam lately?

What is it with all this spam in Outlook in the past couple weeks?

I used to get like 4 or 5 a day. But now I’m getting like 50 a day. And it seems to be getting worse everyday.

They all in my junk folder, once in a while I do get non junk in my junk folder, so I have to check it.

It seems like blocking isn’t helping.

    <p>I haven't noticed a massive increase. I did get a few (2 or 3) unusual messages recently that I wouldn't normally, but that quickly subsided. I would be interested to hear if this continues. </p>

    <p>Past couple of weeks? I can't go a day over the past year or more without some email trying to enlarge a penis, sell me hookers, or some gift card from Amazon which is clearly fake. Add to the fact that I'm a woman and I wonder why people think I'd want any of these</p>
