I hate to me the one to tell you this but everyone is talking about how fat you are. Its disgusting. As a friend, I recommend going to THIS WEBSITE to buy a product that will help you shed those unsighly pounds.Since I am thin and computer-savy (at least in this regard) I knew it was spam. However, even if I was fat and naive I would still know it was spam since I got 25 copies of this email from different addresses. Wording was identical.
- Could someone really fall for this after getting 25 copies?
- Are there still people out there who fall for these things at all? (I assume yes since I still get plenty of spam.)
- Did they send out that many hoping that only one would get through? So they were counting on good spam filters. This makes their target people who are fat, naive, and have good spam filters. A thin demographic.
- More generally, I wonder if spam-scams are less effective then they used to be becuase people are getting wise to them. Or are they more effective as more people begin working on the web every day.
