Heard it was about one success (someone sending them some money) from about 2 million emails sent out! Still makes it worthwhile for them.

 

They get an email address trawler programme to collect addresses from the web - why you should not post it on the web if at all possible.

You right - some are more targeted down to giving your name etc - called "spear phishing". Most are automated.
