Let's define and look at it more carefully, taking into accountrepparttar 132840 old saying "there is a sucker born every minute".

What is spam?

The hidden secret about spam that could save you thousands of dollars.

We all need to treat spam as a news service. What do I mean by this you ask? I get about 20 spam messages a day on average and consider it a free news service of businesses to stay away from. In other words, when you get a spam message be sure to "insert" a subject atrepparttar 132842 top ofrepparttar 132843 message that says "Another business that is a scam or is going bankrupt". The first part ofrepparttar 132844 subject is very clear and covers most ofrepparttar 132845 spam you will get. The other half is very important.

Many companies onrepparttar 132846 net right now are going bankrupt, in fact this number is inrepparttar 132847 tens of thousands. You can bet 100% that if you get a message from a company that is trying to sell you something that seems legitimate they are trying to keep from going out of business. You can purchase their wares butrepparttar 132848 odds are they will use your money to pay their creditors or simply pocket it without sending you a thing.
