  2. Well, I have today exactly the same spam message. It comes from Tansy Mcelroy. :)

    I guess spammer just check our e-mail is they active or abandoned.

  3. I suspect it may work more like this: Spammer gets a percentage of people to agree to place the ads. The ads get placed. Website owners wait... and wait... and ask about payment... and wait... and take down the ads in frustration... and wait... and eventually recognize that payment won't be coming.

    Granted, I'm cynical. But why else all the take names and subterfuge?
