Spam Mail Fact Sheet - CitizenLink
A Federal Trade Commission (FTC) study found that 17 percent of pornographic spam included pornographic imagery that loaded automatically when opened. Forty-one percent of these messages also included false .from. or .subject. lines with the purpose of leading more people to open the message and be unintentionally exposed to the images.

Tricks Pornographers Play
Times have changed. Not only is pornography today more lewd and provocative, but its peddlers (now part of a multi-billion dollar business) are much more aggressive in their recruitment of new customers. For both sides, the Internet has offered up a crucial ingredient to the burgeoning industry--anonymity.
