Or think that they do. There is no honor among thieves.
What are they going to do if they do not get paid? Call the cops and
confess that the con man that suckered them into committing a crime is
now refusing to pay them?
Alleged transcripts of spammers forums have been pasted here indicating
that spammers are complaining to the people they are spamming for are
not paying them for hits.
When a browser contacts a spamvertised link, it confirms to the spammer
that the ISP is not blocking their spam, so they can target more to it.
Depending on the browser configuration, it may also reveal more
information about you.
In addition, it can expose you to "cookie exploits", if any of the web
sites you use have insecure cookies, even after the public exploits.
Since people that work in the computer field are still stupid enough to
click on obvious viruses, there has to be some of them that have not
learned to prevent cookie harvesting.
