Received a UCE from them today. Does anyone really fall for this kind of fake advertising?

Send stuff to millions of people, yes some small percentage will fall for it. The numbers work in their favor. If it didn't, they wouldn't bother doing it.
And welcome to Innspiring.

Hi there! :)
I received it yesterday and the first thing that I did was look up their Alexa ratings, which says: "Destinationstravelmagazine.com has a three-month global Alexa traffic rank of 1,126,887. Its visitors view 1.8 unique pages each day on average. About 62% of visits to it consist of only one pageview (i.e., are bounces). Roughly 45% of visitors to Destinationstravelmagazine.com come from the US, where it has attained a traffic rank of 459,880. The time spent in a typical visit to the site is about two minutes, with 72 seconds spent on each pageview."
So I went looking into the stats.... top 10 keyword searches...
1 hop hot off the press 19.16%
2 destination magazine 12.29%
3 myron mixon tlc world champion 12.05%
4 aleutian deadliest catcj 9.70%
5 myron mixon 8.13%
6 all day cover 6.79%
7 alliance hop on hop off 5.59%
8 "hop on hop off alliance 5.31%
9 apple 631-1281 4.03%
10 destinations magazine 2.00%
Still can't believe that people fall for these scams.
