Default strange emails on phone.

Having strange issue with my email. I always notice it when I am on my phone, but I will have an emaik from myself that also goes out to contacts on my list. The most recent one was some benjamindegen .com website.I won't post the full url, but I have not clicked on it or any other one. This is the second time it has happened. The first time it was a dif website. I downloaded antivirus for my phone and scanned and got nothing. Any help would be appreciated.

do you use the email on your computer as well?
if so it might be a spam program that have been installed on your PC.

If you have a hidden spam bug (can come through softwares AND viruses), then it could have key-logged your details and started using your account to spam its owners links and such, if it was a key-logger then you need to change your password and scan your phone with a good antivirus to locate it.

But again, the spammer could have been on your PC as well, just as possible.
