Where have the scams gone?

I have been rather busy over the past couple of months. Not only that, I have 14 email accounts on several domains and not one of them has attracted anything malicious, other than standard product marketing spam in those months. I am aware that a couple of major botnets have been impacted by the closure of cybercriminal sympathetic hosting companies. Still I miss those links to malicious web pages and malware files. I haven’t even had a mail from a gorgeous eastern European girl looking for love.

I have received offers of employment from dubious sources. The kind of employment that involves me processing sales orders through my own bank account. Obviously others have received such emails too. Just in case any of you think that this might be a good way to earn some extra cash, be wary, in all likelihood these jobs are a front for money laundering.
