Have you retyped "Photo Editing"? If yes, try copypasting from the spamming message: the spamming program might be using a letter from a non-Latin alphabet that looks the same as a Latin letter to humans, but is actually different for computers. And maybe make a quarantine folder, to which you'll make the rule direct the messages, which you'll check every so often before deleting its content. Just in case someone writes you a legit message about photo editing.
