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.

So Many Pointless Emails and Calls

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

An email telling me that I will save £40 by throwing away my kettle. I just need to replace it with a water boiler. No thanks. I don’t need to live in a café – so I’ll keep the kettle.

An advert for absentee control software and even a 30 day free trial. We’re a volunteer organisation so this is irrelevant and in any case – snooping on staff won’t create loyalty.

A ridiculous scam email. A Dr John Wilson of The Dubai Property Show has arranged for $18 million to be transferred to me by Sky-Line courier. He just needs a set of information first – including name, address, telephone numbers, email address and password, annual income and so on.  Then it goes on to describe the consignment box as being 46m by 52m which is half the size of a football pitch. That’s pretty huge and it weighs only 41 kg apparently. I won’t be taking up this offer.

A new wonder slimming product used by the singer Adele. No chance.

Apparently research has shown how to reverse your hearing loss in 7 days. Doesn’t matter what caused the hearing loss – it can be magically restored. I’ve heard that one before.
