If you want something grand, ask for SPAM.
The most widespread types of spam:
According to Kaspersky Lab, in February, 2010 post spam on the Internet was distributed on subject as follows: 18,9% — education, 15,7% — rest and travel, 15,5% — medicines, goods/service for health, 9,2% — computer fraud, 6,5% — computers and the Internet, 5,2% — remarks of elite goods, 4,1% — advertizing of spam services, 2,7% — for adults, 2,2% — real estate, 2,2% — legal services, 1,9% — personal finance, 1,4% — polygraphy.
Some companies which are engaged in legal business, advertize the goods or services by means of spam. Appeal of such advertizing — the low cost and (allegedly) big scope of prospective clients. However, such advertizing can have and a boomerang effect, causing vigilance in receivers.
By means of spam advertize products about which it is impossible to report by other methods — for example, a pornography, counterfeit goods (counterfeits, a seized property), medicines with restrictions on the turnover, illegally received classified information (databases), the counterfeit software.
Here advertizing of services of spam sending (Legislatively in Russia spam is forbidden, but fight against spammers legal methods is extremely complicated) belongs also.
Information prohibited by the legislation on advertizing — for example, discrediting competitors and their products — also can extend by means of spam.
Sometimes spam is used by swindlers to entice money at the receiver of the letter. The most widespread method received the name "Nigerian letters" because a large number of such letters came from Nigeria. Such letter contains the message that the receiver of the letter can receive somehow a large sum of money, and the sender can help it with it. Then the sender of the letter asks to transfer to it a little money under the pretext of, for example, paperwork or account opening. Vymanivaniye of this amount also is the purpose of swindlers.
Narrower name of this type of fraud — скам or скам 419 (according to article number in UK of Nigeria).
"Phishing" (English phishing from password — the password and fishing — fishing) — one more method of fraud. It represents attempt of spammers to entice at the receiver of the letter of number of its credit cards or passwords of access to systems of on-line payments. Such letter usually masks under the official report from bank administration. In it it is said that the receiver shall confirm data on, differently its account will be blocked, and the site address (belonging to spammers) with a form which should be filled is given. Among data which are required to be reported, there are also what are necessary to swindlers. In order that the victim didn’t guess deception, registration of this site also imitates registration of an official site of bank.
The biggest flow of spam extends through e-mail (e-mail). Now the share of viruses and spam in a general traffic of e-mail constitutes by different estimates from 70 to 95 percent. In spam advertizing of popular specific goods often meets: Rolex (counterfeit), Viagra (generics), etc.
Recently the considerable part of popular social networks coming to users and dating sites of personal messages is spam which is often dispatched on behalf of users, logins and passwords to whose accounts fell into hands of spammers (that facilitates a bypass of various restrictions). Except personal messages also can be used and other methods of communication on social networks — invitations in groups/communities, requests for "friendship", "walls" / "guest books" etc.
Recently websites on which it is possible to leave comments (for example, forums and blogs) or what can be edited freely — Wicca became popular. As these pages are open for free editing, on them spam — splogs can be placed. Similar spam especially irritates that it is more difficult to remove it (as a rule, in forums and blogs only exclusive users — respectively can edit messages, the ordinary participant shall contact someone from them).
Search spam — pages and the web sites created for the purpose of a manipulation by results in issue of search engines, for example, дорвеи — pages with keywords and the automatic redirection on the "necessary" site.
Spam can extend not only on the Internet. Advertizing messages and letters with a request, sent on mobile phones by means of Sms, are especially unpleasant to that is more difficult to be protected from them.
Testing and the analysis of results of spam sending steadily shows its exclusively low performance, and often and almost complete futility. For example, during an advertizing campaign in California from 75869 computers in 26 days 350 million notices on sale of new medicine on a natural basis were dispatched. As a result the firm secured 28 orders.
