The correct answer to this question is A, Spam. This refers to UCE, which stands for unsolicited commercial email or UBE, which is unsolicited bulk email. Spam is the electronic form of paper junk mail that comes through the United States Postal Service.

It usually includes advertisements, but few reputable businesses use unsolicited email practices. There are many examples of spam. One is phishing spam, which is very dangerous, as it tries to obtain sensitive information such as credit and debit cards, social security numbers, and passwords.

Other examples of spam include foreign bank scams, offering one an inordinate amount of money in exchange for information, and ads for vulgar content.
