At the risk of seeming less than politically correct, is it only me that gets all this crap from people with Indian names using gmail and hotmail accounts? It makes me wonder if the entire sub-continent is involved in an email spam cottage industry.
The way I see it, people in Indian subcontinent do it manually. Others write code and email harvesters to send in your lotto winnings or offer you best prices for pills or the best casino deals ;)
The email address was not collected by a robot. Someone took the time and effort to find it manually.
Why did they send this email?
Some rookie who was taught to browse websites or whois to find actual email ids . Also given a template to email. And probably has to submit a daily report of how many link requests were sent out. Guess what part of the world the person would be in ?
