I've seen a similarity in most of the SPAM mails I receive, that majority of them are sent from Hotmail accounts and specifically from hotmail.co.uk domain.
Another thing that I noticed is, the content of the mail claims to be from UK.
For example :
Samsung Electronics (UK) Ltd.
Samsung House 1000, Hillswood Drive, Chertsey,
Surrey KT16 0PS

So the question is: Why all the spam from UK? Does the UK Law protects such spammers in some way? Or it's just a random choice for the SPAMMERS?
