Spam Used in Selling Illegal Drugs
March 02, 2011
Pharmaceutical spams are some of the many kinds of spam that may arrive at users' mailboxes. These messages may vary, such as offers of miraculous cures to known incurable maladies or even medicine for erectile dysfunction. This spam sample, however, is noteworthy because it advertises illegal and contraband materials available for sale such as heroin, rocket fuel, tomahawk missiles and cocaine. It offers the last item on a promo basis - recipients may get a free gram for every 9 grams purchased. Heroin is also on 'clearance', with every purchase of 30 grams yielding 5 free grams.
Users are warned to be cautious of such email messages and delete these right away.
