How Much Money is in Viagra Spam? Try $4000 a Day!

NASCAR Team ViagraAt least now we know the reason for those hundreds upon hundreds of spam-emails we receive every day.

Sure, we knew the spammers were making money (or they wouldn’t be doing it), but now we have a better idea of exactly how profitable spamming can be, if you have the right product to sell.

Try $4,000 a day, or more.

A recent survey by the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group determined that spam email works. UP TO 12% OF SPAM RECIPIENTS ACTUALLY WANTED TO BUY WHAT WAS BEING SOLD via spam, and 1 in 6 people have responded to a spam message.

A different survey that calculated that $4,000 figure for Viagra and other pills, showed that PEOPLE EVEN RESPOND TO THOSE FAKE ANTI-VIRUS MESSAGES that show up from time to time from various emails or undesirable websites, with 10 out of every1,000 users paying for the fake product… earning those selling that crap up to $180,000 a year.  The Viagra spam for one company scored around 20 purchased per day per email campaign, with an average purchase price of around $200 each.

You would think that all we need to do as an intertwined Internet community would be to stop responding to the spam emails in any way whatsoever.  But as long as there’s somebody out there clicking away, we’re never going to see the end of spam anytime soon.
