Everybody is tired of getting spam emails. There are millions of such emails sent out every day. Whenever we make a new account, often it happens that before we get an email from one of our contacts, we get an email from an unknown person which is usually full of scams. There have been many famous internet scam emails and one of the notorious ones is the Nigerian email scams.
Recently, a Microsoft paper explained the Nigerian email scammers. The question arises why cannot someone put a stop on the flooding of these emails into our inboxes which has been going on for more than a decade now. The new study from Microsoft researcher Cormac Herley gives specific details behind all this. One of the reasons pointed out is the use of the name of the country of Nigeria. Most internet users are intelligent enough not to go for anything such as this. But those who would bother to reply to their email would be dumb enough to fall for the rest of their scam too.
Those who fall for their greed and this deceit would then end up giving their life savings to an unknown scammer. The study says that though sending emails is free of charge, but scammers spend their time while replying to such scams. Their time spent could be taken equal to the monetary investment they make. All this has resulted in people also falling prey for their scams. Further details about the new Microsoft study are easily available on the internet.
