Pharma spam has become more visual

Fact is, when installed correctly, spam filters work for most mail programs. My own experience is that it works for 49 out of 50 mails, so I may have missed recent developments in pharma spam mail design –like this one that arrived in my inbox a few minutes ago:


Spam mail used to be pure text, but now they have apparently begun to add pics. In this case a young blonde woman with a blue stethoscopish streak around her neck that classifies her as an authoritative intern rather than a simple pleasure model. Even biomedicine on illicit commercial display makes progress!

PS: how do they get beyond my filter? Seems to be an example of what Geektronica calls “clever pharma-spam
