That is part of it.  A technique I have observed recently is the
effectiveness of having a subject line that sound threatening as opposed to
offering something.  Long ago we have all lost interest in having won a
million dollars.  Last week I received several notices that I was being
investigated by the legal department, and that the company was proceeding
with disciplinary actions against me.  Twenty years in this company without
a disciplinary action, then I get sixty of them in one day.  They were
trying to sell me viagara and baldness cures.  I opened several of them
before I lost interest in the latest legal action against me.  The lawyers
can call me if they want to sue me.  Email won't work anymore.
