Spam business model

According to this BBC article, spammers are turning a profit despite only getting one response for every 12.5 million spam e-mails sent. Even though their response rates are less than 0.00001%, big spam network generates more than $3.5 million USD in annual revenue. All it takes is thousands of hijacked machines sending millions of spam messages a day. Crazy!
