2. For Spreading Botnets: Fake emails with attachments(.php,.jpg,.bmp etc) contains bots means self spreading Trojans that steals your email contacts and email that to hackers.
3. For Stealing your personal information or to cheat you.(mails like you won 10000000$ please send us your details to claim).
4. For promoting or virul a product.
