From:? Maybe it's time to revive EvilNumbers?

No, not the same meaning as an arithmetic, binary, "Evil Number" :)

Well, EvilNumbers sounds good.? I saw a post popup on my phone yesterday
from ThreatPost citing that "no security professionals track phone
numbers".? Pissed me right off, those morons.? I love it because for
these spammers, their biggest cost probably IS the phone number.? Go
ahead and waste it.? The only thing that could be better would be to
have some sort of "Perkelator Dialer" (RIP, thank you) that
automatically dials these numbers and hangs up!

Here's a couple of rules with phone numbers.? This is what I've tracked
mid-2019 to present.? NOTE:? Many, but not all, are associated with
Amazon-type order schemes.? Some are just persistent junk mailers.

As per Loren and Martin, these rules are best used in a meta rule.
Loren's rule is solid.? I had one message that did not contain the word
"order" in the subject and one other that had "Order Status" in the
From:Name field.

I also use these in conjunction with FreeMail rules.? Good Luck.
