    If I see one more Rolex watch email I am going to Rolex doesn't even put an email address on their site, so I went to Network Solutions and looked up their domain name to find one. I will foward them 1 Rolex spam email a day. Please do the same. Though they are not the source of the spam, they are the ones that can make it stop. I'm sure they don't want their good name associated with spam.

    Rolex have started to take some action against the spammers, see:

    The trouble with this fake watch spam is that it's BIG, generally about 54Kb, and they spammers are happy to use directory harvesting to send multiple copies to random addresses, so if your domain gets hit, you can get hit really badly.

    Fake watch spammers in particular seem to use zombie networks of trojanised PCs to do their hosting and emailing. Usually, they take over the machine after it gets infected with a virus or other malware.
