Spam comes from several sources. A person sending spam is called an email spammer. Sometimes a single Internet user will collect a few hundred addresses and send out messages to them. In other instances, a business may do it to promote a product or service it is selling. However, the majority of spam comes from companies whose sole business is to send out millions of messages a day for paying customers. These are all email spammer examples.
More important spam facts to know are the latest spam threats. Regular computer users unknowingly have a virus on their computer. The only purpose of these viruses is to silently send spam to millions of email accounts.
