Fifteen Minutes of Fame...

So Friday morning when I awoke, I opened up the computer and gently said, good morning. It informed me that I had 6 emails and I thought that was pretty good for a Friday. Two of them however were from a foreign country, probably China from the looks of it. The senders name was "sysob" spelled out in English, so I thought it might be someone from a dating service. I really know better than to open unknown emails, but my curiosity got the best of me and I did. In that email that was written in Chinese, there was one line that was in English, so I clicked on it and it took me to another Chinese page, so I deleted it and went on to the next one from China. I couldn't make heads or tails out of that one either so it got deleted and I didn't think about it until Saturday morning when I got a Mailer Daemon from somewhere that I didn't send an email to and it was in Russian. Next, there was an auto response from a woman in New York that is out of the office that I didn't write to either and all of the while, I've got an unusual amount of spam accumulating.

I'm starting to think it was a mistake to open those Chinese emails, ya think? I got busy doing something and didn't really check anything until Saturday night and by then I had literally hundreds of spam mail piling up, so I looked at it and found that they were all mailer daemons from all over the world in many different languages. I ran a security scan and discovered there was nothing wrong. Somehow someone stole my ISP number and is abusing it across the world. After speaking with a friend and telling him what had happened, he asked if they got to my online banking? A cold chill ran down my spine as I checked and everything was safe. My question is, why don't they spell "mailer daemon" correctly?
