Avoid the scams, find out which Business Opportunities actually work

In the Sunday Times this morning was a report which claimed that nine out of ten emails are spam.

Apparently the amount of email spam in the last 5 months has trebled.

One month ago I decided to sign up for SpamArrest to stop all unwanted email before it gets anywhere near my inbox.

How to Stop Receiving Spam Mail Immediately

Since registering for SpamArrest I have received 18,379 emails of which only 869 were allowed through the SpamArrest filters. That gives a massive 95.27% spam rate.


  1. How do these people who send spam make money when 99% of recipients delete it manually or use the latest spam filter. It seems to me to be nothing more than a waste of their time and effort just thinking up the range of names they use to evade recognition filters. If it gets past your filters and is even opened does anyone even read more than one line of the stuff? I often use dedicated email addresses when becoming a member of any on-line gathering of like-minds, no one else is given the address nor is it shown on any of the many pages of my various web-sites, if it starts to collect spam I know who is responsible. Needless to say most of the spam I receive is thro email addresses I need to put on my web pages though these are often changed annually.

  2. Thanks for the comment Tony.

    Rumour has it that there are spam “brokers” who will promise to email, for example, 1 million people for $0.01 per name. People line up to spend the $10k required and realise afterwards that it was a waste of time and money. However, there are loads more suckers for these spammers to offer their services to and so it goes on.

    Another theory is that some people, ludicrous as it might sound, do buy the crap offered by spammers which makes it worthwhile…
