Conversation with a Spammer

Share this article: Facebook Twitter Stumble Upon Digg This del.icio.us Reddit

It's suprising the gall of spammers these days. They try to start conversations and give you virus infecting websites. When a friend sent me a YM, I immediately detected it was a spammer. That is what they do now, they hack into people's Yahoo accounts and give their friends spam websites.

So this is what I did, I fought fire with fire!!! Read our conversation below.

shaui: you there?

Marcel: Hey! What's up?

shaui: will you do me a quick favor and take an IQ quiz for a project im doing?

Marcel: I can't right now. But would you be interested in a product I just bought.

shaui: I need to see how many people out of my friends get over a 115.

Marcel: It's called "Slim and Light"!

shaui: just go to  http://iqte#####.com/?invitecode=1xqnjtn449a and take the test.. if you do ill owe you big time.

Marcel: It's awesome, a friend of a friend lost 60 lbs in 2 months!

Marcel: Can you believe that?

shaui: please let me know what score you get. thanks so much

shaui: im going to go cook while you do it

Marcel: Here's the URL for the product, I would owe you so much if you'd buy a bottle or two.

shaui is typing...

shaui: BRB, let me know your score when im back!

Marcel: http://www.sli#####ht.com/

Marcel: BRB while I take your quiz, please check out the website I just sent you.

Marcel: I just got 200 on your IQ Test.


And another one, more recently

janna: hey you

Marcel: Wazzzupp!!!

janna: I think Im about to lose a bet...

Marcel: Huh!?!?

janna: its about me finding 5 people who have an IQ higher than 110

Marcel: NO WAY!!!!!!!!!! I had a bet just like that!!!!!!!!!!!!

janna: will you pleaseee take this iq test for me then? http://iqtes*****a61

Marcel: But mine goes like this, I had to find 5 stupid people who listens to someone that asks them to take an online IQ test.

janna: thank you so much!

Marcel: Wait! How many took your test?

janna: not many, just 10 or so

Marcel: NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You actually made 10 people take your test? Then I just won my bet!!!!!!!! Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!!

Marcel: No problem!!!!!!! Must be the police!!!!

Marcel   Really!! That's hilarious!

They're real people then, at first I thought they were robots sending canned messages, and then when I asked how many took their test, it answered!!! Man!!! That's so funny!!!

But, you have to ask, what do they get from this? How much traffic can they get doing this stuff, is it worth the time their wasting? If it was, then that website must be paying them A LOT of money or is very very destructive!
