How spammer earn money from spamming email?

I just getting frustrated with those stupid spams ...

how they going to earn money just sending stupid email for everyone on web?
mathiaus
There are lots of ways to make money from them.
One is to phishing, where they pretend to be a real site (I always get them pretending t be paypal, when I'm not even registered!). They may say they have a problem which requires you to login or something similar. They link you a site identical to the site who they are pretending to be, though it is actually different on another server. When you enter your details they are stored and later used. They then have a lot of your personal details, name, address, phone No., card details etc.
Others include simply linking to drugs stores hoping you'll buy some (usually Viagra), having referral links where they get paid per hit from their link etc.

I'm sure other members will have a larger knowledge of how this is done, than myself.
pashmina
i think every email they send contains a referrer link or may be something..
goutha
They try to sold you several product like viagra and stuff like that!
mjohnson
I never browse spam email.when I got them I deleted at the first time!

@k_s_baskar
HOORAY! Sometimes it feels like you personally are being overladed with spam. Yeah I get these many times every day. Also a very similar one to the Paypal one from Ebay quite often.

I must have won a billion pounds/dollars in lotteries since being online since 1995! Very Happy

If only it was yhat easy.

I got caught out once by a spam supposedly from Ebay saying that my acount was being upgraded to that of a powerseller and that I should check ebay for the terms and conditions.

I was selling a lot of stuff on ebay at the time (not enough to be a pwer seller though) so I clicked the link going to the terms and conditions page on ebay (or so it seemed).

I was presented with my usual log in page so I entered my details and carried on looking at the ebay site.

It wasn't until I logged into my account a few hours later that I saw that someone had been in and all of my items for sale had been converted to dollars from pounds, some of the prices had been altered.

Luckily this time it was just someone being a little naughty, might have been worse if it had been my paypal account.

I reported the incident to email and within a few minutes I got a call from a security guy at ebay. The amazing thing was that he was in the US and I live in the UK. Yet he phoned me to find out what had happened and advised me what to do next.

I now have a pretty secure ebay and Paypal account thanks to him and I NEVER EVER trust emails sent via email from eBay or PapPal and will not use a link to ebay or paypal unless it is one I have typed in myself and saved on my favourites.

The worst thing about spam is that it is people trying to steal from you. In the real world if you discovereed someone doing this you could have them arresyed yet online there doean't seem to be much we can do or a body that we report to like the police, well not that I am aware of that is effective.

Ok, I understand that by phishing someone may earn money. But what about the"harmless" spam? I mean "forward this message to at least 13 of your friends and you will win a great sum of money. Otherwise your little dog will die." I can't see how someone can earn money by sending out these type of e-mails.
joeys
because all spammed email is still targetted

people who use computers are relatively high income when viewed against ppl who earn $5 a day picking oranges

given that, spamming reaches a relatively lucrative market

The only aim of these emails is to hurt people rather than con them out of money.

There are many people out there who will believe many outlandish claims, especially when they are written down in something as formal looking as an email - information on the internet and in emails addressed to them is treated as fact by many new users.

Like the chain letters of old these prey on people's fears and these little pieces of seemingly 'innocent mischief' can cause some people a great deal of stress.

If anyone is worried about getting such emails (along the lines of pass this on or the child/dog/elephant/you will die) pass it on to me and I will destroy it with no danger to you as it would be me breaking the chain.

I have done this to hundreds of emails and nothing bad has ever happened to...........

...............AAARGH!!




Just kidding, Laughing pass them on to me if it REALLY worries you about not passing them on.

P.S. I am not interested in receiving any scam emails - I already have a fair collection of them already!!!!

Passing those kinds of email will do no good, just the ones threatening dire consequences if you don't.

At least then the worry, no matter how silly it is to worry, is taken off your shoulders.

I hope this helps someone. Very Happy

I used to get these kind of emails all the time, but then I started replying with either of these (when I actually do reply with these, they are much longer and more elaborate, but I havnt had to send one in years so I have all but forgotten what I used to include in them - i assure you it was bloody funny though):

Quote:

Foward this email to 300 people within 3 seconds or you will die instantly.

This email is not just one of those stupid spam emails that you keep sending me, its true, it happened to my uncle Jed!


Quote:
Stop sending me these emails, they are a load of bollocks.
(detailed list of why these emails are bad and why its impossible for the origonal sender to track the email)

You have been warned, If I recieve any more of these emails from you I will be sure to reply and include a lovely big scan of my horrible hairy arse. If you persist in sending me these emails (incase the first picture didnt load properly) I will send you a similar picture, except the 2nd one will be with the cheeks spread.


I know the 2nd one is horrible, immature and disgusting - but it works, I have never gotten past the warning email with the 2nd method - and am quite pleased by that because I never intended to actually scan my behind.

That's chain mail which can be considered as spam. It's usually created by some bored person who just want to kill time. I heard sometimes it's started by email providers who wants to see how many people use their email service. I'm not that sure about the second reason but the first one is definitely true.
godam64
i got more than thousand spam email from everywhere every month. it's so annoying and boring to see several spam email getting to my yahoo inbox.

spam mail getting money from inviting you to a site and you download something or triger something on their site so your pc get infected with their nasty ware. your pc get so well since it's need someting like paid anti malware, spyware or antivirus and many more. they creat the cure and you buy it from them. they get rich...

or maybe they sell something like illegal pharmacy stuff, mp3 music, softwares, movies, and many more.

sometimes they got money by suck up your bank account, paypal account, credit cards, e-gold, and many more by act like impostor (phising).

so beware with them, spammer are cowards and they are criminals
Nyizsa
Thanks to all who replied, you made things somewhat clearer. I don't get really much spam, one or two a week. Yahoo's spam filter works well. Cool
An other thing I dislike (or simply find useless): sending 3 MB .ppt attachments with a 2.99 MB picture of cute little kitties and a "Remember your friends" sentence. This is not really spam, since a frined of mine sends it from a valid e-mail address and without any malicious intent. It's simply an overkill.

Wouldn't it be nice if you shared some of those tips with us so that we could have much more secure accounts? Wink

This kind of spam generally doesn't generate money. It's generally used for mischief, like Captain Fertile said, or for spreading their own ideals. I've received quite a few e-mails urging me to pray, to believe in God, and what kind of miracles can happen to me if I do (and also, what kind of horribles tragedies may befall me if I don't).

Also, sometimes, people just start these forwards for amusement purposes, finding it extremely entertaining that people actually forward these mails to 10 people out of fear of the various horrible consequences mentioned.

I don't think e-mail providers need to start these kind of mails to really determine how many members they have... I'm sure they have a complete database of all this information Smile

That's interesting... yet, I guess that only applies to those of us who are gullible enough to go to some untrusted website and download and install any program they recommend.

At the moment I'm okay and hardly get any spam which isn't junked (about one email a day on average is a junked spam). Usually, these emails are just adverts for something and nothing so serious as someone pretending to be PayPal's Financial director or something similar.

On my old email account, however - I got about 20 emails a day (assumedly from the same person) which were all from different email addresses; none of the emails were junked and I had no apparent way of stopping them (as they all appeared to be from different people, but it was probably just one crafty php / perl file).

Anyway, my advice is not to enter your email address (or any other details) to websites you do not fully trust. If you aren't too sure, use a secondary email account, sign up with that and if the website is secure, safe and trustworthy go and change your email details (and other personal details) on the website. You can never be 100% certain about what you're getting yourself into though, especially as the people who create bogus websites and/or send spam email are usually evil but clever people.
Lessien
another good idea to deal with those spammers is spam them right back, wel sort of.
basicly install a bouncer in your mailbox but that only works when using outlook or another mail program that saves the mails on your computer.
now what a bouncer program is:
it simply bounces back the spam to the one sending it so you don't get it, not sure they will simply get it back in their own mailbox or a message saying the mail couldn't be delivered.
it's really handy but so far i haven't found one that is completely free, only ones on a free trail basis but they are good
we had one for a while here at home and it does help a bit
and when it comes to spam, al small bits of help in getting them out are welcome.
it's really tiring to get them, right now my hotmail and other webmail programs are set on exclusive.
funny thing is that it seems i'm only getting spam ment for guys, maybe they think i have 2 genders. but that doesn't matter actually since i delete them on sight.
Captain Fertile
I would certainly recommend simply deleting the spam. Don’t reply to it (even when they request an automated receipt choose NO).

If they don’t know anyone is there at that address they are less likely to keep trying. As soon as they know for certain that address is active you will be placed on an active list and you’ll probably be hit with even more.

You know, I think you're absolutely right there!

My old email address began to be hit with spam emails about 5 times a day (that was a minimum, although I've heard of people getting 90 a day minimum - I simply couldn't cope with that) and I'd never consciously entered my email address anywhere which would have caused this.

Anyway I changed email addresses, not just because of the spam, but that was a contributing factor. The amount of spam that I received to that address has slowly been decreasing (as I occasionally check my inbox on it) until today, when I checked earlier... There was no spam! That's the first time since I started getting the emails. I'm assuming that I've been dropped from the list of active email addresses, therefore.
Captain Fertile
I get a lot of spam email in all of my accounts - I tend to pepper my email addresses around the web so I really have only myself to blame (well apart from the actual spammers of course).

It is still a pain though especially when the odd genuine message gets deleted.

I've heard it is designed so that it screws up your spam filter if you "report as spam" because It contains normal words and phrases. so then afterwards the more standard spam (such as the phishing ones talked about earlier) can come through to your inbox.

It makes me think about how much money there must be in the spamming industry, seeing as nobody I know ever opens (or at least clicks on links in) spam emails. How many clicks can you really get?

Ten Thousand! Wow! That's, that's... I can't think of a word to describe it, somewhere between ridiculous, amazing and outrageous.

The thing is, spammers don't need nerves. They're sending emails to people they'll never meet and don't know in person and will get a bit of cash for it. After a while I'm sure they'll see what they're doing as just another chore.

How can you get so much spam??? You should probably have your email account closed and just make a new one.
Aless
Sometimes they make commission on clicks, so if you click on a link in a spam e-mail, they'll make money from advertisers.
Davidgr1200
There are some people who treat spam as a game (look up spambaiters in google). They reply to spam and drag it out as long as they can in order to make the original spammer do as much work as possible for no result. Some of them are quite funny. Have a look at http://www.419eater.com/, you may even be encouraged to do some spambaiting yourself, but make sure you get an untraceable email first and NEVER give out details which can enable you to be traced.
skygaia
I think spammers can't earn money from spamming email.

well... I'm not sure.. but the programmer who made a program of spam email might earn money...
guissmo
Everytime I check my email, there's at least 1000 Spam Messages in my inbox. I'm happy about that.

I just don't get why they think that the Internet is a good market to sell Viagra in.

Dear;


2:256. There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks.

Remember that sending you the $100 is not the solution,the money is in fixed deposit account and there is no way to widraw any amount there other than to clear the depts and remove all at once, so if you need percentage from if, i will give you when it comes out, remember that i'm in huspital and i don't have the strenght to be going up and down if not the sister nurse that are been helping me,i couldn't have be writing,

So please help me send your information or contacts so that i will make the change of ownership in your name and the money will be landed in your account ,and remember that you will be making arragement for me to come to your country.

Waiting to hear from you soon.

Then I replied to her



Hi,

Thanks for your reply. To know if you are serious, I want you to deposit $100 in my paypal account. Then only I will send my details. I am very serious about this but you understand I cannot just give my personal details to anyone without any faith.

Why I am asking you to put $100? Just to know whether you really are serious or not. I will return the amount as soon as I know that you are serious. Please let me know

These people are scum. Evil or Very Mad

I would not even give them the respect of an answer.

If you do want to do something than contact their email provider (Yahoo France I believe in this case) and inform them that their service is being used to run an international fraud.

These people will say anything to secure the money they want and they car not one bit who gets hurt along the way. Don't justify their actins aiwht a reply, either delete and forget about it or pass it on to their email provider.

There are also emails that contains a small little transparent image 1x1 pixels which is loaded from a php script. If it's loaded, they know that you opened the mail and then they know that that email-account is active, so now the bomb you with spam. Active email-adresses is gold for the spammers so if someone know your email-account is active he'll sell the information to other spammers. It's gold worth. Now they'll spam you. Never open something looking like spam!

You're right there, sound advice. Luckily many email programs or websites (like Hotmail, Windows Live Mail etc) have a feature where you can open the message, but none of the links work and none of the externally linked content (for example images, or the php thing you suggested) will be loaded in and it will look like you never opened the email. I really like this feature in Windows Live Mail as it works automatically for all emails where the address is not known.

They are paid by the products they advertised. Earnig varies as to per email opened or per clicked. Apparently emails have an invisible pixel image with them to monitor if it was really clicked or opened.

I’ve been receiving a lot of spam containing advertisements and trying to make me go to their website for some reasons, telling me that I won some prize in Africa (??) and that they wait just for me to send them my details so that they can send me a check… I couldn’t get rid of that spam for a long time. Then I started to get spam without any text, just some strange images with invitation to go to their website… And the worst of all is that they were using RE: as an email subject. I asked my Internet provider to help me but they couldn’t do anything to stop them. I had to use some software to bounce every email and after few weeks they finally gave up! It was very frustrating, especially because I know that I never used that email address to sign up any account. How did they get my address?

Until I installed my latest spam filters on my sudoku forum, the whole community almost drowned in spam.

I can not see so clearly how the spammers can earn anything on destroying a forum, when they want people to click on their links.

If a forum is flooded with spam posts, people will run away, not click on their links Razz
bartdou
that's what i wanna know too, thank you all
Guelila
the most simple explanation is this.

When the receiver of the email, or the victim of spam in this case, opens the email, he or she sees the advertisements in the email, and if the advertisement catches the reader's eyes, BINGO.
The readers will click the links on the email and go to others sites that will make money from the readers selling products etc.

Yes, but the question is who actually clicks the links?

No one I know, and no one here has admitted to clicking on a link in a spam email. But some people must do it. Also, enough people must do it to make it worth while. Of course, probably less than 1% of all emails sent result in someone clicking an advert, and even fewer of those will actually buy a product. That's why you get so much spam mail.

So who does click the links? I'm sure a few people click by accident, and perhaps some people who don't really understand - people who aren't 'up-to-date' with this - may click occasionally. But most of the time even they would know that the mail isn't something they asked for or want.

I think there must also be people who actually want the products that these emails advertise, so the emails are an easy way for them to find the products, or a final push to make someone buy them.
