Have you taken a look in your spam folder lately? I go through mine every once in a while to mark them as ‘read’ so that I don’t have to see how many unread messages there are. Spam is getting more and more weird.
Now, I’ll concede that spam writers have a challenge. Everyone has a spam filter now, so they have to be creative to get a message through to the inbox. But it can’t be that hard, I mean, I do it dozens of times a week. But the spam I’ve been getting lately isn’t even coherent.
“ggg diamond simulant…” I guess they forgot to spell check. Another says “us military phonetic alphabet”.
No link, just that. There are much longer ones, too, but they’re just as nonsensical. Now lets suppose that somehow I’m interested in buying… something… from them. I’m not exactly sure how I could contribute to their cause.
Old school spam I understand. They’re selling something, so they send an unwanted email with a link. But this new spam, how does anyone benefit from either end? I don’t get it.
