It's spam.

Spam is theft.

Therefore, it's a scam.

If he's so hard up, where did he get the resources to spam with?

Wasn't there just a thread on why spam continues, because so many
idiots send money to spammers? Some are suckers for bigger bodyparts,
others for free money, others for helping the needy. All of those are
reasons that spam continues.


[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I suppose he probably got the resources
to send the spam from the local public library, where he said he
looked up other information. Many libraries are nto set up on their
public terminals to block spam from going out. As far as 'why spam
continues to be a success' the only reason (of the several you named)
which I would consider at least a wee bit acceptable would be helping
the needy. And do you consider the occassional 'call for papers'
printed here and at other sites to be 'spam'? Or the monthly notices
or minutes of meetings from the EFF, ICANN and similar? Those are
unsolicited also, yet they keep coming out to the entire net. PAT]
