    Here it is well known and works like that: They promise you $ 1 mio. But before you have to pay $1000 for opening an account and for prepearing the business. I believe you know that your good money is for them and you never will hear anything from them.

    I get about 3 idiots like this a month who go through the process to sign up for my message board with a valid email address just so they can PM me crap like this.

    Amazing.

    Dynamoo (I think it was him..sorry if not) posted something about a lot of spam harvesting now being done by humans. Obviously the old emailNOSPAM@domain.com is next to useless due to programatically being able to detect it, but, even the more clever ways of obfuscating email addresses are not so good any more due to if a human can read it, it can be added to their spam list....

    Still better than nothing. My recent tests show spam arriving on a virgin address a day after posting to usenet, though, I've read studies with a wider reach that showed spam arriving in under a day in some cases. yikes.
