So, what’s the dumbest scam or spam on the Internet this week?
An email from firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “Simple fruit combo destroys obesity”.
It goes on to claim that this amazing drink is helping millions of people through the Mayo clinic.
Then there are testimonials about how good the product is.
The best one is from Sarah, described as a severely morbidly obese person.
“I’ve taken this for a couple of days and not only I wiping out all of my unwanted fat but also my blood pressure and cholesterol levels are normal since then”.
The instructions say you take the drink only once in the morning and that’s it.
So, two days of drinking fruit juice in the morning has resulted in significant fat loss and has normalised her blood pressure and cholesterol levels which were presumably a serious problem as she was morbidly obese.
What an amazing product!
Or perhaps just amazing that people fall for this kind of drivel.
Any scammer with half a brain would want the claims to be more realistic rather than an instant cure for all problems.
