How create a Rule to filter sender's email with more that one @ sign

lately, the spammers are using fake emails with several @ signs to skip specific domain RULES.
Below there are 2 examples of the senders email I would like to filter and move to an specific folder:

I know I cannot use wildcard on the sender email rule, like this *@*@* <-- this will work if the * was a valid Wildcard for any character combination on Sender's email.

On my Outlook 2013 I created a subfolder under Inbox called Suspected:

Sent Items

I've found some reference on using scripts as an alternativity, but I'm not cleat on how to set the subfolder, in the sample blow they set the target folder to "Move" but how can I set it to "Inbox/Suspected" ?

Sub MoveInvoices(Item As Outlook.MailItem)
Dim MoveFolder As Folder
Set MoveFolder = Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
Set MoveFolder = MoveFolder.Folders("Move")
If LCase(Item.Subject) Like LCase("*ai-so-?????*") = True Then
Item.Move MoveFolder
End If
End Sub

Also, let me know If there is another alternative, that doesn't need scripts.

Thanks in advance for all your help on this.
