Question: Provide a real-world example or describe a hypothetical situation in which a legitimate organization used spam in an effective and nonintrusive manner to promote a product or service.
POST: Spam can be identified as an email that was sent to us by an unknown source. Usually these emails are marketing strategies for new organizations or for organizations that want to launch one of their products. Emails are an important source of communication and it is a known fact that everybody checks an email and hence this new marketing strategy where they send spam emails to account holders. However, the email accounts have now identified these emails and have started sending them to the spam folder instead of allowing them into the actual inbox folder.
The spam messages might genuinely be marketing or launching a product but even the hackers also use the same emails to be able to access our systems and steal our identities. So, before we think of checking any spam messages, we should make sure that the email id from which the email was sent is a genuine one and not a fake one.
