What are these spams ?

We often see our community and the discussion boards getting flooded with spams. I really appreciate the quick work by the tech team in removing these garbage. But, I was really wondering what are all these advertisements? The automatic translation by my chrome browser suggests that someone is trying to sell fake university degrees from the US and Canadian Universities. I am sure moderators have contacted the authorities to report against these criminals who are not only hacking a bank's website (though it is not hosted by the bank it is part of them nonetheless with all our credit card information) but also trying to sell fake university transcripts online.

I noticed this evening that the spam seems to have returned. I have reported it.
