McAfee rewarding spammers with affiliate revenue ?

I have found repeated examples of spammers sending emails with the end result being a link to McAfee with what seems to be an affiliate ID.

This is a spam email being directed to a legitimate McAfee link. Why is this allowed ? And why is it so hard to report ? I have called multiple times, and forwarded countless times to THE spam address at mcafee each time explaining it's not a scam, it's a bad affiliate.

I have full details, headers, etc. If someone wants to reach out to me.

REPOSTED DUE TO MCAFEE SAYING THEY WERE TAKING IT OFFLINE AND DOING NOTHING :) Nice work McAfee
