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

A self proclaimed ‘Digital Marketing Expert’ named Anita wants to get us on the 1st page of Google. – But then she isn’t on the first page of Google for Search Engine Optimisation and she has a Hotmail address which means she’s just a lone worker. Waste of Time.

An email from Bryan – the mobile APP creator. He asks do we have an APP yet. If he was any good at his job he would have checked. He signs off with “A stuffing of your ideas with the salt of our expertise. Poof! Your gourmet mobile APP is ready to be served” – Amusing but pointless.

An email from ‘Breakfast Diet Foods’ titled ‘Do This Tonight To Make Fat Cells Self-Destruct”. The email is actually from search-new-deal.info so it’s just a lead generation company looking to get people to click on any rubbish so it can sell their details.

An email about pension led funding. It means raiding your own pension to fund your business. Dangerous. This is perfectly legal but high risk – if your business fails then you lose your pension as well.

Someone trying to sell access to 12,000 shed plans. Why would anyone want access to so many plans and why are there so many?  – surely sheds are about the simplest buildings there are. The email is actually from got-your-details.info which tells you it’s another lead generation email. There probably are no shed plans – but if you click then they’ve got your details to sell.

These people just waste our time and clog up the Internet with rubbish.
