iPod On AOL Top Spam List

America On Line's (AOL) third annual most common spam list is out, and the iPod nano is there. The top ten list of most common spam email schemes puts the iPod nano in fourth place, along with the PS3 and Xbox 360, for unsolicited technology offers. The spam email offers that AOL tracked were all unsolicited, and are most likely bogus scams, as well.

The top ten list shows that spammers are becoming more sophisticated, trying to trick computer users into think that their emails are in response to prior messages, part of an on going email conversation, or a part of a consumer-initiated online transaction.

AOL's top ten spam headlines for 2005, with categories in parenthesis

    1) Donald Trump Wants You - Please Respond (popular recognition)
    2) Double Standards New Product - Penis Patch (sexually oriented spam)
    3) Body Wrap: Lose 6-20 inches in one hour (body improvement products)
    4) Get an Apple iPod Nano, PS3 or Xbox 360 for Free (technology offers)
    5) It's Lisa, I must have sent you to the wrong site ("personalized" correspondence)
    6) Breaking Stock News** Small Cap Issue Poised to Triple (stock scams)
    7) Thank you for your business. Shipment notification [77FD87] (bogus transactional spam)
    8) [IMPORTANT] Your Mortgage Application is Ready (mortgage-related scams)
    9) Thank you: Your $199 Rolex Special Included (high-end "deals")
    10) Online Prescriptions Made Easy (pharmaceutical)
