Stock spam seems to be quite profitable. I get a lot of e-mails promising
me great profit if I buy certain stock. In order to escape spam filters
the spammers have proven to be very innovative.

- They draw funny, captcha-like images, hoping the receivers can read it
better than OCR software/li>
Today I received a spam e-mail containing only a link to
ImageShack. Guess what was behind it?
