Reason for blank spam?

I receive some spam emails that contain no messages. Just blank. No attachments. Nothing. I just delete them, and add the senders to my spammer list so they are filtered out automatically next time, but why do spammers send these? Are they gaining some benefit from me that I'm not aware of?

it could be that a spam filter either on your pc or some isp's site that the message passes through has removed it.

I am getting a lot of the same,they seam to be getting a bit more regular now.I use e-prompter and delete them from there.I had a thread on here last week with the same subject.
