Over The Top SPAM Everywhere

I have a test Gmail account that I set up and I answered some SPAM emails using this account, with the sole purpose of researching SPAM messages. I’m currently averaging around 500 SPAM emails a day, that is 500 emails going into the Google SPAM box within the account.

What I find so amazing about most of this SPAM, is that they are so, well dare I say it, so SPAMMY.
Shit tons of SPAM
They are using the most SPAMMY subject lines I have ever seen. All sorts of Emojis and colors that they are hoping will attract your attention, and it does, but it attracts a negative type of attention. In fact, a study shows that adding an emoji to an email subject line increases the negative sentiment towards that email by 26% (https://www.nngroup.com/articles/emojis-email/).
The subject line content is just funny and the number of “typos”, spelling errors, and grammatical errors are just amazing.

Shit tons of SPAM
I order for spammers to keep sending these emails out like this, people must be falling for them. What I find amazing is the number of emails for money and sex. In the first screengrab above There are 4 emails referring to sex and sexual products and 15 about free money. I guess they know their target markets. In the second screengrab, there are 8 emails about sex and sexual products and 12 about free money. So based on those statistics, the majority of the people in the U.S., want free money (sorry to disappoint you, but that doesn’t actually exist) and a fuck buddy (well, that likely doesn’t exist either).
I find the actual from line and the subject of the emails humorous as well. They are all like bright flashing neon lights that state “avoid me”!
This little experiment goes to show that using the unsubscribe link in SPAM emails does not work, it just gets you more emails in your inbox. The same applies to actually clicking on the link in the email and visiting the website.
I highly recommend that you set up your anti-malware software to help reduce the amount of SPAM you get in your inbox to avoid things like the above.
