filtering spam from your bank

A good way to filter spam from legitimate companies is by noticing your name at the start of the subject line.

So much for CONSTANTINE MURENIN, please log on to your HSBC Internet Banking Account.

Important messages have important subjects; if they think they are sending me spam, such that they have to put my name in the subject field (effectively spamming my mailbox view), then they are in fact sending me spam.
