| p.1 #5 · Seriously, what's the point of spamming a photographer???? |
Such a PITA!! BTW, the emails that I got were from two different email addresses. It blows me away that they actually get people to fall for this stuff.
Yeah, once in a blue moon. That's why they send them out to one gazillion photographers. That's the business model. Send out one million emails. Get 1,000 responses. Out of those, 100 continue to the next step. Out of those 10 accept the gig. Out of those, maybe 3 send money. Bongo! Spammer made $3000. On to viagra, lottery winnings and penis pills.
Best I ever heard was this model. Guy blasts out his stock market predictions. Every month he predicts if the market will end up or down. After twelve months of being 100% right, he offers his stock picking services for a huge fee, and runs off with the money. Or you get his newsletter subscription. I forget.
Thing was, every month half the list would get an email predicting an upswing, the other half got an email predicting a slide. Whichever way it went in real life, then he'd email the next month only to those who got the email with the correct prediction. By the twelfth month, if you were still getting his emails, you were sure this guy was a genius.
