Hard to believe in this day and age that spam can still work, isn’t it? But that’s the conclusion Metro magazine came to a few weeks ago when they worked out that if just 0.00000008 per cent of people respond then spammers can make up to 2.2 million pounds. Well at least we know why they’re still doing it.
But who responds to these emails?? Surely the type of people that click on these links should have removed themselves from the gene pool long ago and appear prominently in the Darwin awards. I imagine they’re the same people that think they’ve genuinely won top prizes when their newspaper scratchcards all reveal winning symbols. Or perhaps they’re the ones that feed sharks off the coast of Florida wearing nothing but scuba suits and smelling of fish blood.
It gives me a headache just thinking about it – must dig out one of those cut-price meds emails and order some paracetamols…
