You mean to say:

Why am I getting so much spam?

JFI :

some of the websites , friends / colleagues and the mail service providers
might be involved (directly / indirectly) in spreading of the spam mails ...

this dosent help you with the spam you are already getting, but it can be helpful to see who is selling your address:
