    Sweet! If that doesn't work out let me know cause my buddy General Mutumbo of the Congo is always looking for partners to transfer cash too. Usually between 10 million - 20 million per transfer. Also my other buddy Prince Najibar from Nigeria always needs good christian americans to give money too for a small percentage. Let me know if your Sgt buddy doesn't work out. :)

    I find it quite funny that his email is danilo.fummi@fastwebnet.it while he calls himself Sgt Joey Jones, first of all he's not who he says he is but also he's in Italy??

    Most of these are just stolen emails from yahoo, gmail, etc... Especially with all the NFL blackouts spammers are having a field day having people install viruses to watch their local blacked out NFL team on TV. Everyone I know locally who installed it started sending out canadian viagra adds the very next day. I told em all to change their passwords and get rid of that codec install. They did and it seemed to stop. But my point is 99.9% of the email addresses you get spam email from have no idea they even sent it. Whats really sad is since all our games here in tampa have been blacked out. They even published a list of sites to watch it on in the Tampa Tribune. So I know a good percentage of Tampa's emails have been comprimized.

    What NFL blackouts? (I assume something to do with American football, right?)

    This is social engineering, and the only way to prevent it is to make sure people are vigilant about installing stuff on their computers.

    I don't want this to turn into a computers thing, but do you think, like victims of serious contagious diseases, computers should be isolated if they are considered compromised?

    Yes, in American Football this year with the economy the NFL has rules that if you don't sell out the stadium by Wed the week prior to the game. Its blacked out on local markets within 150 miles from the game. Well it turns out many games are getting blacked out this year. This is causing NFL fans to try to find the game online from another state. Well the spammer/hackers know this and are offering to show you the game if you install their specific codec to view the video, which is usually loaded with a virus to turn your computer into a spam bot.90% of the infected people never even know it. They did the same thing with the Paris Hilton tape and in theatre movies. I'm sure everyone here knows you don't go install an exe file to watch a video.

    I don't understand why the ISPs don't do more about it. It must be easy enough for them to tell which customers are botted and email them about it.

    Customer gets an email, sees "you have a virus", has been told about not to click on these "scam" emails... and? Perhaps the ISP should just cut off the service immediately and send the customer a letter.

    No the best solution would be to block many of the client PC's ports and place a phone call to the user. But many of these people don't know their infected because the bots not doing anything but stealing your yahoo id and pass. Then a 3rd party computer takes the email and pass and puts it into a mass email program and it will start pumping out emails by the 1000's. But since the emails are coming from an overseas IP the ISP's don't notice. The only thing that would notice and stop it would be virus protection or spam protection.

    I thought most spam came from botnets of compromised computers.

    Then again is it really in the ISP's interest? More bandwidth used = more cost to the customer(?)

    Yes but many times they won't bot your computer, just steal your password.

    They still need a computer to email from. It's useless if you have 1,000 Yahoo email accounts and no way to send emails from them. Nearly 80% of all spam originates from compromised computers, i.e. botnets.

    But you can send email from over 1000 accounts via 1 computer. So while yes their are botnets to spam email, many people would rather steal your password and you not know your infected so they can keep steeling your password, then use it on a different computer to actually send out the emails. When your computer is botted its virtually useless. People would realize they were infected when they couldn't do anything on it anymore. So as for the NFL one they were better off just planting the virus and stealing your pass, then using a different bot to actually send out the emails.
