Just a note, it's not from someone with an @me.com address, it's to someone (including you) with @me.com addresses. Just report it as spam, and your filter will grab it. Enough of them come through and Apple will probably pick up on the origin and block it as well, but such is the nature of computers and email. They're just guessing likely email addresses and blasting out spam to any and every address they can come up with, regardless of whether it's a valid email address or not.

how exactly do you report a message as spam?

Me too. I only ever use my me.com for close friend correspondence and as such has been spam free for years till a couple of days ago. Quite infuriating.

I got the same 2 messages twice, I wonder what happened? I doubt it's Apple's fault though.

I got the first initial batch, as well, though nothing in the past couple of weeks (crosses fingers).

One thing that might be useful is to make sure you have disabled the "display remote HTML settings" in the Mail application, or the equivalent setting ("load remote images") in Mail, Contacts, and Calendars, in iOS. The reason is that once these images load, spammers can tell if you've opened them, thus knowing the e-mail account is active.

I noticed it was back. Forwarded to spam@me.com so hopefully it will soon be blocked again.

Yep, I got one today, and a two twitter emails where a member sent me a message asking if they can post my video (i never heard of them, and I don't do videos). Look at the urls provided its clearly spam.

So it seems that Apple have accidentally (or not?) leaked my email address to Spammers.

Has anyone else noticed any such activity?

This started on my @me account this morning...specifically a diet company advertising some kind of food supplement, and a gift card company...neither of these are outfits I've ever used, or communicated with.

Me too, Dr. Oz in inbox; just forwarded to Apple and ask to adopt their filter.
I guess the spammer want to use the holiday season assuming less people at Apple will take care.

This is all well and good, but I get at least 10 spam messages a day on my .mac account. I've had to remove the address from devices because the constant vibrate and/or beep is absolutely annoying. I would like Apple to have better spam controls.

I stuck it into the spam box, so should auto forward to apple. It's a shame the spam filters with iCloud suck so bad.

I got 7 from this ****ing Dr.oz this morning, each one sent from different email address with the same name "Dr.Oz Diet".
It appears to me that icloud has some serious security issue here. How comes so many emails never used suddenly got spams?

Maybe it is time that Cue got ousted. He simply got too many hypes from the media for the still half-baked icloud.

Cook, clear your ass and fix the icloud, passbook, and maps. Don't Cook half. You need Cook well.
