Why do not we press the Unsubscribe link on Spam e-mail?

Have you ever tried unsubscribe to Spam or Spam? If you did not try it good you would never do it. If you open spam emails you will notice that they also contain a link to delete your email from the list.

Don't think it's nice because it's not. The spammers didn't add the deletion link because they thought it might bother you. Nor did they realize that some people will never respond, so they try to narrow down their lists for more efficiency. Spam

Clicking "Unsubscribe" or Unsubscribe in a spam email will make a very big mistake. The results will be completely opposite to what you expect.

Let's see why:

While "legitimate companies" seem to respect each recipient's deletion requests, malicious users use the deletion links to confirm your address and send you more spam.

Sophos Alan Zeichick reports that a click on the unsubscribe tells the sender that you opened your email, probably because you were interested or why you might have imagined that the spam was real.

By visiting a spammer's spoofing page, you give him your browser information, operating system, and IP address, risking more and more targeted malware attacks.
