    I received this lovely thing in my Hotmail inbox this morning and thought I'd ask Hubbers WTF is this?
    I haven't done anything yet, and wonder if I should.  Is ignoring it-deleting it-the answer?  Should I report it somehow?  I have absolutely no idea who these people are.
    Thanks:

    That spam advertising is getting crazy huh !   You used to be able to recognise them straight awaay becasue they came from a Prince in Nigeris - but these days ! !

    The one bugging me comes through emails looking like from a named person I mightk now are - "Hey - I just bought my new ----  "  This started within a few weeks of joining Hubpages and I suspect that soemeone on here is collecting emails through contact via hubpages which I have unguardedly replied to from my own mail address.

      Yep, I used to get those, too, china man.  Do you have any suggestions?

        Well - I am 50% convinced they originate from a hubber who emailed me - so it would theoretically be possible for a number of people getting these mails to compare their list of those they responsed to using their own mail address ?

          So essentially these are spam sent by another hubber?  That's disappointing.  I was pretty sure of whomever I chose to communicate with.
          As you can probably tell, I'm not very savvy when it comes to computers.

    and I now just delete them as they appear.

    Along with the fictitious wanna be your friends that MSN is generating to try to pump up their failed social site
