Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week

An email claiming to be from a Chinese company that manufacturers high quality industrial flour milling machines, food gritting machines and granular food flour processing lines.

So they sent the sales email to a radio station – very intelligent.

The email address shows it’s from huinachuixing786 @163.com but  a real company would have its own email system not use an Internet service like 163.com

So the email is from a scammer.

It starts off with

Good day Sir or Madam,

I am so glad to have received your message”

Of course, we didn’t send them any message. We’re not buying flour milling machinery this week as we’re stacked out with those already.

Just a stupid scam looking for people to reply to the email and hence tell the scammers that they have a live email address and are gullible enough to respond to ridiculous emails.

Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week

So, what’s the dumbest scam or spam on the Internet this week?

If you’re a trained carpenter or at least very experienced and proficient at woodwork then you might consider making a wooden boat. Clearly even a one man boat is a major piece of work for which you need the right tools, workshop space and a significant commitment to completing the build.

But there’s a moron who keeps sending out spam emails offering 518 boat building plans – step-by-step guides plus videos.

“It’s a simple yet BRILLIANT process to build boats … quickly and effortlessly”. “Anybody can do it”.

He claims to have just finished his second boat last week ready for a fishing trip.

Is there anyone dumb enough to believe that building a wooden boat by hand is effortless?

I hope there isn’t
