    Im not sure if this is a poll or not but i figured this topic would get the most responses being in this section. But I am ultimately curious on this question. And that is

    Has anyone actually ever bought/odered/joined-(by paying cash for the membership) anything from an unsolicited spam email they have received, ever?.

    If so what was it and when?.

    The reason why I am asking as it seems to be getting on the rediculous side the amount i am getting and i cant seem to fathom where from. And why these people actually bother?

    So from this poll i was hoping maybe i could find out a bit more on this or hopefully these spam emailers themselves may actully see there time is wasted as nobody buys their stuff from these emails.

    Or not maybe people do, and this is what i wished to find out.

    Thanks
    Anthony

    No - I never read them. 98% of it is filtered directly to the trash.

    If no one bought anything, it wouldn't be profitable for them send it. Surveys reveal that because spammers send out millions of messages, only 1%-5% response is necessary for them to make money.

    Of course not.
    Don't even read them.
