          Sadly people do buy from spammers and they do fall for phishing scams and that's why we all keep getting them.

            Yeah, moreover there is chances that they can trap at least one or two people per day sending million spam.

              Recently I have seen some big companies as well using spamming route to get more business. They simply use certain parked domains or forwarders to include in the Spams and finally you land up on their main website.

              If anytime I catch their main domain in message source then I am not going to spare them

                    Indeed, it's just the entering of details, and the look and feel of the website. Basically hackers would get more success of using trojan horses.

                      Oh! We need to be very careful; if we click any spam links it may damage computer data.

                        Don't even open spam - it's easy to insert images into emails and then track when these have been viewed.

                          The temptation of clicking without reading mails properly is a major reason for spammer's success.

                            GoogleMail is excellent for filtering out SPAM. Thats why i use it. Plus it's fast and no need to reload to see if you have got emails, It reloads using AJAX.

                              I use Mail Washer to view emails in plain text before it is downloaded.

                              I can then delete any suspect ones - it even learns what is spam and marks it for me. You can even get a free version for checking one account but I use the paid one so I can check all my (many) accounts.
