Sky News has a list of the ten people whose names are used to attract people to read spam email. These are people who are apparently so attractive that we will be unable to resist their names in the subject line and we will open up emails containing viruses and other nasties. The top three are: Angelina Jolie, Barack Obama and Paris Hilton.
Personally, I wouldn’t be tempted to open a dodgy email with any of these names. Mind you, if someone started sending out spam with ‘free theological books’ or ‘photographs of spaniels’ I might just take the risk and open them!
What phrases might get you to open an email from a complete stranger? (This is a joke – of course you would never do such a daft thing!)
