Why do spammers include an unsubscribe button?

why do spammers/scammers even bother having an unsubscribe button, which either does not work, or they do not honour?

    Because it is required to be can-spam compliant.

    It is possible that it may not be intentional, but an error on their part or system problem. Because not honoring or having one that doesn't work is pretty stupid.

    If it is truly something illegal, then it is probably to make it look more legit.

    Yep; honors compliance. Or, helps them get through spam filters - possibly - and also helps them (possible, according to interpretation) avoid breaking the law.

    They are doing everything in their power to keep you from clicking "SPAM". For those that care about CAN-SPAM, it's required. But it's also required that you honor it and that it actually works.

    According to can spam act, there should be a single click "unsubscribe" link and the physical address address of the sender should be mentioned in the email.

    Guess spammer will try to look as legit as possible, maybe they're following CAN-SPAM Act.
