who pays for spammers?

Granted, we’re well aware of the spammers out there who send us unwanted emails. And anyone who’s visited a support forum has likely read a slightly newer version of “content spam”. It will appear as what could possibly be a legitimate user’s comment but it usually comes across as a little vague/unspecific. A typical content spam these days might look like:

“your information is really very helpful. I get some interesting knowledge from this article. you may also get important updates from mcafee customer service. keep sharing these type of important suggestions.”

Corporations who pay spammers

  • McAfee
  • Netgear
  • babasupport.org

A call to arms, dear Internet

Do me a favor. Visit¬†https://chathelp.org/mcafee-support/¬†and chat with McAfee. Let them know that you don’t appreciate their paying for spammers. Let them know that this link was part of some unwanted content spam.
