Everyday I get a notification that I have a 1pm meeting with "New Video - The $800/Day Secret"

I literally have this meeting for the next few years..how do I block it, or get rid of it all at once?

I upgraded to iOS 10.3 and read it has an option for marking some invites as spam, but I haven't seen the option yet.

Well, when you go to that event in your calendar, do you have an option to remove it?

Oh I have the same problem, but in my calendar it's some kind of annoying ads.
In the ios10.3, I can only solve this problem by signing out my Apple ID in the settings.

Why can't you delete these spam events?

I can't because there are maybe thousands of spam events and they are everyday events.
Right now I can delete all of them by entering settings-Apple ID, icloud-iCloud-turn off Calendars.

I guess these spam events are sent by iCloud.

They are somehow all separate events rather than just a single repeating one? Something would be rather odd there if still truly thousands of separate individual ones. Don't forget that you can access and edit your calendar from a desktop browser by going to www.icloud.com

Should be possible to delete an instance along with all future instances of it to get rid of them all.
I report them as sapm events and delete them all, Thank you. But I really do not know if this will happen again.
