    I never thought INDIA will be added into spamming list. However I must agree that Indian people are getting more knowledge about internet and getting rich online, so may be they are trying to spam.

    I still don’t know from where the spammers got my email address… My yahoo mail is full of spam mails from US or European countries, but my gmail is relatively clean.
