Yes I get them all the time. I don't even bother reading ICQ messages any more. I just close them.

I recommend all icq users do the following.

Click on "ICQ" on the bottom left of icq, goto Secuirty and privacy and tick all the boxes on the first page. I had it set like that for a while and was able to change it back to normal and dont get any spam.

Use Trillian!
It is free and you can have multiple accounts at the same time of ICQ f.e. and it handles AIM, ICQ, IRC, MSN and Yahoo all in one program. AND spam is blocked!

Fortunately I dont receive as much SPAM from ICQ as from my hotmail account. I get around 50 SPAMs in the latter everyday.

I receive hardly (pun intended) any spam through ICQ. A couple a month, no more. Just close 'em.
