Those Terrible Time-Wasters

So, what rubbish emails and calls have there been to Brooklands Radio station in the last few days?

A final award notification notice telling me that I’ve won $4.75 million in the Bono Lotto – I must be very lucky – winning a lottery I didn’t even enter. I’ll tell them to donate the money to charity.

A video to watch that warns how my family could end up in a FEMA concentration camp. This is part of a very strange conspiracy theory to do with America’s Federal Emergency Management Agency. Very weird.

An offer to let me join the Millionaire beta testers of the Dubai Lifestyle APP. The APP apparently lets me rake in ‘insane’ profits with just a few mouse clicks – I don’t think so – only the scammers make money.

Apparently I’ve subscribed to a newsletter but it appears to have no name and I need to click on my profile to set preferences. My preference would be for an end to scammers like these ones.

Asda wants me to redeem my £500 Asda gift card. I don’t think so, as it doesn’t exist.

Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week

A nameless person with the email address freeshedplan wants to give us 12,000 plans for garden sheds.

Yup – that would be so useful. I could build one a day for the next 32 years. Mind you, I don’t know what I would do with all of the finished sheds.

Apparently the plans are so precise the sheds “practically build themselves”.

This is just ridiculous – no-one could possibly want 12,000 shed plans.

The email is really just to get you to click on a link that’s nothing to do with sheds.

I have to act quickly to get this special offer apparently – though the email does appear every few weeks so I wouldn’t have to wait long.
