They might not be sending it but one of their customers are.

That is not true. They receive the reports and they should be looking at
what the cause is.

Spamtraps do not send any mail, they are never used for anything.

Either they have a spammer or spammers or they have trojaned/infected
machines on their network sending out spam. Or someone is Bouncing virus
email to the "From" address. As you know the from address in virus and spam
is usually forged so these are bounced to an innocent victim which is just
as bad as spamming.
I think you would agree with me that everyone is tired of receiving mortgage
quotes, penis enlargement, breast enhancement, weight loss, nude 40 year old
teenage sluts, Viagra, vacation, lottery, prescription drug, business
opportunities, genealogical, university degrees, gambling, get rich quick,
MLM, pyramid schemes, Web Cams, Russian brides, work from home, stock scams,
pirated software and everything else that is force fed into our inboxes.
