Beware of spelling and how these Spammers are wording things.  You will need to create different rules for each piece of Spam.  It is time consuming, but once you have created the rule, those messages should go directly into your "Deleted Files" box.

Don't forget to empty your "Deleted Files" box - it will start filling up fast after the filters are in place!
