I am not subscribe or have a bit coin wallet I have never heard of them and I am not with them. The emails have my full name and email address how have they got them I never click on anything in these emails.

They would've got your name/email address from buying contact information from somebody else who you signed up for emails with. Sounds like really persistent spam. I had some similar to that and tried to block them with the same result. Try unblocking the domain and instead making a rule to automatically send it to your spam folder. That worked for me.

The reasoning behind it working in my case is I believe the spammers' system detected the blocked address and auto-switched it to something else. If it thanks the emails are getting through, there would be no reason to switch it.

This should work for Gmail:

And this for Windows Live mail:

Like I said, then you can filter anything from the domain(s) and tell it to go to your spam folder.
