No text please, we're spammers

Spam is on the rise, thanks to the use of junk images designed to trick email filters. Instead of a typed message, users will see only an embedded .gif or .jpeg image file urging them to buy pharmaceuticals or invest in penny stocks.

Because the junk images typically do not contain any text, filters are not able to look for known URLs or suspicious words to block them. - No text please, we're spammers
