Ex Spammer Says, “Prepare To Be Bombarded”

“Ed,” a retired spammer, spoke in London on Wednesday saying he expects to still see spam in 10 years.

PC World reports on an event in London hosted by IronPort Systems, an email security vendor where an ex-spammer talked about how profitable spam is to the spammer. With the kind of profits described here we can see why spam will probably never end. Instead spammers will find new ways to get to those stupid enough to buy.

    Until the credit card companies start refusing to accept payments for spammers, spam won’t go away.

    Until people stop clicking on ads from emails they’re not familiar with, spam won’t go away. :P
