Offtopic: Targeting Spam

Why would you send a spam about fake diplomas to a .edu address, especially during the graduation party season? Or are they offering people like me still struggling through their theses an easy way out? I called them up to see how much an MSc diploma would cost, but they had their voicemail on.

Speaking of spam. Radar Waves reports about a new technique of spamming people through "send-this-article-to-a-friend" links on major news sites such as NY Times.
