Any time-wasters not normally classed as scammers or spammers

Warning – Employer Match

Recently multiple emails are appearing every day from employermatch.co.uk and the same messages from careercandy.com and wherejobs.co.uk

The titles of the emails are strange, such as:-

  1. Help Requested
  2. Urgent Tesco Openings in Walton-on-Thames

There is no Tesco in Walton-on-Thames and there isn’t one planned.

  1. Urgent ASDA Employment in Weybridge

There is no ASDA in Weybridge – the nearest is about 10 miles away.

  1. Cabin Crew needed in Walton-on-Thames

No airplanes in Walton-on-Thames  that I know of.

Employer Match is not a recruitment agency and does not appear to have any jobs to advertise.

Instead they copy job adverts from recruitment agencies and present them as if their own and send out huge volumes of emails with misleading titles and misleading content.

e.g. one email had a Librarian Assistant as the first job vacancy but if you click on it then the site changes to Retail Choice advertising site, showing an assistant manager job vacancy – nothing to do with libraries.

On the Employer Match website there is a search facility – if you put Library assistant and press search – it tells you there are 1,355 Library Assistant jobs near Weybridge.  I would guess that there are at most half a dozen such job vacancies within the whole of Surrey and it would need hundreds of libraries to employ a total of 1,355 Library assistants.  Weybridge has just one library with only a handful of staff in total.

How does Employer Match make money from their spam emails and website?

That is unknown. It’s possible they get paid for every click from their messages to a recruitment website.

The website claims the company is registered in Poole, Dorset but the home page shows jobs in America and the website seems to be hosted from America.

It does seem to be a strange new form of Marketing that is producing huge amounts of misleading spam messages.

Best avoided.

Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week

An email titled ‘No More Veggies. Substitute This”

This is from Tyler Bramlett, who seems devoid of basic common sense.

He’s pushing a drink made of greens, that is called Organify and he seems to believe it is very healthy.

Not eating vegetables cannot possibly be a healthy action to take.

He goes on to claim he gets sent around 35 supplements each week by people wanting him to endorse their products but he only picks 1 or 2 to do so.

Drinking apple juice is not as healthy as eating apples. Drinking green vegetable water is not as healthy as eating green vegetables. It’s very simple really.

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