Hey Sam, if you get any messages like this, just report them as Spam and they will be looked into and the offending sender most likely blocked from sending more messages.

And just to be clear, you report them as spam by using the "Report as SPAM" link displayed next to the message.

Just to clarify one thing there. When you report them, they are blocked immediately from sending more messages. A manual review is then done to see whether they are blocked/banned for good or the block is removed in cases where it might have happened by accident.
