Almost all the spam I receive is from disreputable organizations. Here's one that claims the recipient has won a Xerox color printer. As it turns out, Xerox really is offering a free printer, subject to some fairly serious stipulations. But it's a general offer, not limited to a few "winners".

It's important to note that Xerox didn't send out this spam. Xerox has an affiliate program in conjunction with this offer. As such, Xerox does not directly control what these affiliates do. On the other hand, if Xerox allows spamming affiliates to continue to earn money after Xeroxs has become aware of the spamming, Xerox becomes complicit in the spamming.
