    I regularly receive emails from a wide range of addresses that are forever
    congratulating me that I have been approved for a great new low mortgage
    rate. Of course I have to go to a website to finalize things. I know this a
    virus/malware/exploit but I am just wondering which one? Also, all these
    emails have a bunch of jibberish word strings at the bottom. What is their
    purpose?

    Just curious. Thanks.

    Nah, no exploits involved in most cases. The spammers are finding warm
    bodies with interest, then selling leads to mortgage brokers for as much
    as $75 per name (most are getting $25-$40).
