I used to get loads of this as well from several IP addresses in Germany.

I sent a polite email to their service provider, and I also banned them from accessing any part of my site.

I got a confirmation reply from the service provider, and I've never had any more spam since.

Could be just a case of testing the vulnerability of your site before launching an attack and then doing a mass 'linkto' search on Google with said 'random' characters to see which site(s) are infected.
