What were the last five spam emails you received in your email? If you ask me, 3 out of 5 were about offers of sex service from random person online, while 2 out of the 5 were about Viagra sale offers. Imagine the combination who it caters to — someone who may be impotent needs Viagra before signing-up for those sex services right? Junk email for many people may range from: not deserving any time to think about, annoying or irritating to see, while if we think humorously of what we do to get such e-mail, it maybe somewhat entertaining. But It isn't even remotely coincidental why many of the junk emails being sent have something to do with human desire and emotion because it sells well.
Unfortunately, yes, the spam emails sell well. But who the heck patronizes these products they offer you ask? Not one on record, because no one will even admit of buying something out of a spam email. However, researchers from ICSI Berkeley tried to answer this very question in their 2008 study. With a sheer number of junk emails spammer sends every day, there will always be a certain portion of the population who will patronize it.

Spammers have a way to earn income, even if the recipient of their spam emails never buys the products they are selling, nor sign-up for the services they are offering. This is through adverts, and junk emails always contain links. These links are associated with heavy advertising sites, where a critical mass of visitors earns the spammers a good enough income.
System administrators should use a proactive approach to fight spam, and keep the spam away from their users. This can be done by any commercial product these days, but not all anti spam box programs are created equal.
