My email is public and that's fine with me (I accept the risks).

Vincent, another data point:  my address is not hidden, and I was not getting Forge-related Spam (unless the filters on my account got it and I didn't know it).

Hello Vincent

I've started getting some again, starting 00:04 AM central European time (18 October). Latest mail subject is "?RE: xchnmn2 vrmvqr172" (the funny character is still there, but now what follows is longer).

I just started another thread on this, then I noticed this one.

I have been getting them too, and they look like they are connected to forge related emails. I checked the IP of the sender, they are from China. But the names of the emails that sent them look spanish and the subjects have wierd symbols (IP 115.49.94.110, emails ana_esparrago_perez@hotmail.com (etc),

It is a foreign IP so this may be useless, but for anyone who wants to, here is how to report cyber crime (including stuff like this):
