    What is the difference between scam and spam?

    Spam: Unsolicited e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups; junk e-mail.

    Scam: A confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, especially for making a quick profit.

    What about you?
