Nonsense Random Word Email Spam - What I call Flak Mail

E-mail flak, at least that's what they used to call it, is a bunch of random words and quotes. What's most strange is that it appears to have no purpose to the recipient. However, this isn't the case.

The senders behind these e-mails, most often a botnet,  can have many agendas, from checking if they've found an active e-mail address (looking for auto-responders and people just curious enough to respond), poisoning  your spam filter, or trying to obfuscate a hack into the recipient's bank accounts. If these e-mails happen to be showing up in your inbox in large numbers, delete them and check your bank accounts and credit cards. It's possible there may be an identity theft in the works.

Some good search phrases to find more info are; random word spam , nonsense email , Bayesian poisoning , nonsense spam , random spam

Or just follow these links -
