OEM SoftwareToday I got a SPAM that was selling OEM software, and in the body of the email is a FAQ, with the following:
Q: Why is the software so inexpensive?
A: We offer the software for downloading only, it means that you do not receive a fancy package, a printed manual and license that actually aggregate the largest part of the retail price. In this situation we are restricted in selling the products for private purposes only! You will not be able to get a technical support and different rebates from the manufacturer. Updates are available for the most of our products (you may ask our support staff for the exceptions) that make them fully functional and operating. Additionally you save the delivery cost.
Great, so I spend $149 to download Adobe software, but can't use it since there's no license. Might be better off throwing the money out the window, at least there's a chance some of it might blow back in....

Got to love FunBenefits spams, they have an image embedded in the email that checks to see if your reading it.
Here's an example, I altered the code so my "ID" wouldn't display.
clickhereicon=0&ul=1&ul3=1" border="0" alt="">
I bounced this email back to the server and got a response saying: 550 Relay Access Denied
My advice is to ignore whatever FunBenefits sells.

SpamSometime spam can be funny, like this one I recently got. This text is supposed to fool spam filters that this is a legitimate email.
The English Language. Have you ever wondered why foreigners have trouble with the English Language?. Let's face it. English is a crazy language. There is no egg in the eggplant No ham in the hamburger. And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple. English muffins were not invented in England. French fries were not invented in France. We sometimes take English for granted But if we examine its paradoxes we find that Quicksand takes you down slowly, Boxing rings are square. And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. If writers write, how come fingers don't fing. If the plural of tooth is teeth. Shouldn't the plural of phone booth be phone beeth, If the teacher taught, Why didn't the preacher praught. If a vegetarian eats vegetables. What the does a humanitarian eat? Why do people recite at a play, Yet play at a recital? Park on driveways and Drive on parkways. You have to marvel at the unique lunacy. Of a language where a house can burn up as it burns down. And in which you fill in a form by filling it out. And a bell is only heard once it goes! English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race (Which of course isn't a race at all) That is why when the stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are out they are invisible, and why it is that when I wind up my watch it starts, but when I wind up this observation, it ends.

Robert G. AllenRobert G. Allen has decides to increase his business by using spam. He started his business career by writing several books on how to make money in the Real Estate market, now he's venture to online spam.
I would advised avoiding his books/seminars. There are plenty of better business people out there such as Brian Tracy and Harvey MacKay. Both offer a lot of free advice and have written excellent books.
Robert G. Allen spam Internet users by saying, "On live TV I promised the world I would make $24,000 in 24 hours..." Really, is this a good medium to distribute your message? The net results is similar to him printed up a bunch of door hangers and put them all over town. This is a bad way to get your name out.
This is one opportunity you should miss...
A couple of recent books:
The One Minute Millionaire: The Enlightened Way to Wealth
by Mark Victor Hansen, Robert G. Allen (Hardcover - October 22, 2002)
Cracking the Millionaire Code : Your Key to Enlightened Wealth
by Mark Victor Hansen, Robert G. Allen (Hardcover - May 31, 2005)
Nothing Down for the 2000s : Dynamic New Wealth Strategies in Real Estate
by Robert G. Allen (Hardcover - August 31, 2004)

Sex4Nothing.comRecently I have been getting lots of unwanted email from Sex4Nothing.com. Several attempts to removed me from this mailing list has only increase the mail that I get from this spammer
Sex4Nothing.com is sending out nothing but porn email, and is using tricks that are prohibited from the CAN-SPAM act. Such as having "Category: Medical Dictionary" to trick filters to thinking this is a medical email, and the use of random words throughout the email. Any organization using these tricks can be considered legitimate.
The domain is registered at:

Hopefully someone in the Internet community will shut these people down!

SpammersWith the increase of spam over the past few months, there has been a lot of alternative solutions to stopping them.
I think my solution works the best because there's no way spammers can get around it. No matter how much they try to hide some of their words, the email still will not get through.
Basically all you do is create a filter in your email client and check to see if the sender is in your address box, if not, the mail goes in a holding folder. I named my folder 'Frog' which is named after Brian Tracy's book 'Eat that Frog.'
Once a day I goto the 'Frog' folder and look at all the email to see if there is any legit email. This way I am not missing out on any new correspondences.
I would recommend anyone that gets a lot of Junk Mail to consider creating this filter.
