Unscrupulous spammers from around the globe are targeting those parents who are

the Nintendo Wii
A leading UK based anti-spam company has today revealed that unscrupulous spammers
from around the world are targeting UK parents who are frantically trying to get
their hands on the Nintendo Wii.
The research from ClearMyMail has also revealed that spammers are demonstrating
their ability to quickly react to consumer demand as spam relating to Xbox consoles
has decreased whilst Nintendo Wii related spam has increased by 120% since November.
Speaking about the statistics Dan Field, Managing Director of ClearMyMail said,
“Not only are spammers trying rip the British public off with spam emails that try
to find out their bank details but now we see them targeting parents with emails
containing promises of this years must have present the Nintendo Wii.”
He continued, “In all reality the spammers will just take your money, deliver nothing
at all and also probably try to infect your PC with a virus”.
Anyone who receives an email from an address they don’t know that claims they have
access to Nintendo Wii consoles should delete the message straight away.
UK based ClearMyMail has customers from over 100 countries and uses an 18-stage
anti-spam and anti-virus filter system to ensure that not one spam email gets through.
