Supplying The Snake Oil Spammers Still Lucrative
from the money-for-nothing dept
While better filters and some legal crackdowns may have made spamming less lucrative than it used to be, it appears that those who supply spammers are still doing ok. Spam Kings author Brian McWilliams notes that the company that supplies many of the bogus pills you see advertised via spam is buying a bunch of new buildings as it expands. All this for some pills that have been analyzed in the past to include a number of ingredients not listed on the label, such as: "significant levels of E. coli, yeast, mold, lead and pesticide residues." Yet slap a label on it about how it will shrink your stomach or enlarge other body parts... and people just keep buying.
