emails are usually gathered by webcrawlers. these webcrawlers are small programs running all over the net, gathering email addresses from various websites which are poorly secured. nowadays, most spam mails are, technically speaking, impossible to block. reason? spambots and webcrawlers are pretty much more updated than most of our anti-virus / anti-spam softwares. these programs are regularly updated to bypass all blocks we put up. the best we can do is minimize the attack by being vigilant and aware of where we provide our emails to.

If you gmail user you can report them as spam, so that email will not add to your inbox again but to your spam folder. i dont know from where they get your email, you can ask them.
