If you get this exact email to three different email accounts 
(spamcheck1 at domain.com, spamcheck2 at domain.com, spamcheck3 at domain.com) then 
you can be quite sure that they are spam, in which case you can block that 
same email from your main accounts. Just put the three email addresses up 
on the same webpage or whatever so that the same bot will get all three 
emails together, so will theoretically send the same spam message to all 

Hopefully more clear.
