Man muss schon neue Ideen haben um die Leute mit Spam zu begeistern. Einer Studie zufolge, die im Radio ausgestrahlt wurde, führt eine Aktion mit zig Millionen Spammails gerade mal zu 27 Käufen. Das ist sehr wenig. Allerdings wenn die Partnerprogrammprämie je Verkauf z.B. 10 Euro beträgt, sind es schon mal 270 Euro. In Ländern, wie z.B. Russland verdienen die Leut so viel nicht mal in einem Monat. Da wird dann ein Spammer aus einem derartigen Land sofern er die Möglichkeit hat nicht nur einmal im Monat eine Spam-Mail versendten.
Eine Mail, die mich diesmal erreicht hatte, handelt von einer angeblich reichen Araberin, die so krank ist, dass sie ihre Geschäfte nicht mehr allein bewältigen kann. Was braucht man um sie unterstützen zu können? Ein Konto bei einer amerikanischen Bank. 😉
Hier die Spam-Geschichte:
