Spammers know the popularity of Canadian drugs

From the Toronto Globe and Mail:

It’s a dubious achievement, but Canada’s reputation as a place to buy cheaper drugs has been co-opted by spammers who recognized that using the “Canadian Online Drugstore” subject line was a powerful lure, it was the second-most popular spam subject line in 2006.

So found IBM Internet Security Systems X-Force research and development team in its 2006 security statistics report. Not surprisingly, IBM also discovered that spam rose 39.5 per cent in 2006 over 2005 levels…

Consumers have to wade through this same kind of junk when they search for Canadian pharmacies online through Google or other search engines. That’s one reason we started — to give people a spam-free option for finding affordable medications online.
