Spam adapts to meet changing consumer demand.

ClearMyMail : 19 December, 2007  (Technical Article)
Xbox spam gives way to unsolicited mail concerning Nintendo Wii in the run up to Christmas as parents seek ways of buying the latest in gaming technology.
Leading UK based anti-spam company ClearMyMail has revealed that unscrupulous spammers from around the world are targeting UK parents who are frantically trying to get their hands on the Nintendo Wii.

The research from ClearMyMail has also revealed that spammers are demonstrating their ability to quickly react to consumer demand as spam relating to Xbox consoles has decreased whilst Nintendo Wii related spam has increased by 120% since November.

Speaking about the statistics Dan Field, Managing Director of ClearMyMail said,

"Not only are spammers trying rip the British public off with spam emails that try to find out their bank details but now we see them targeting parents with emails containing promises of this years must have present the Nintendo Wii."

He continued, "In all reality the spammers will just take your money, deliver nothing at all and also probably try to infect your PC with a virus".

Anyone who receives an email from an address they don't know that claims they have access to Nintendo Wii consoles should delete the message straight away.

UK based ClearMyMail is the only company in the world to offer a complete no spam guarantee. The company offers a free 14 day trial and then complete email peace of mind comes at only £1.50 per month.

The system has the ability to also stop the new wave of 'image-spam' that has been increasingly hitting in-boxes and has featured in a book written by BBC Radio 2's Website of the Day writer Miles Mendoza who considers it to be the best of the anti-spam software bunch.

The business has recently won an award for innovation and is short listed for several more technical industry awards in 2007.
