With Valentine's Day tomorrow, romantic e-mails are flooding Inboxes, with over 230 million love spam messages being sent over the last couple of weeks, IBM Security finds. 

"Love is in the air this week and cybercriminals are trying to take advantage of that 'loving feeling' by sending out millions of spam e-mails," said IBM Security, revealing data that showed a massive spike in e-mail dating spam beginning in mid-January and leading up to Valentine’s Day.
