I reported this when I have gotten the first spam of this sort from a
different provider. Ok, the provider blocked that one IP/machine but
the spam moved then to a new IP. If you are lucky, you have already got
one spam-mail after posting here and might get a second one after I
answer yours.

As the spam stays the same but the IP addresses move across continents,
I believe that a botnet is behind the activities.

Good luck in finding out more.
