What Are Those Time-Wasters Up To?

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

An email from an American company looking for a distributor ($5,000 start-up charge) for their slip resistant floor treatments. – How many million emails would you have to send out randomly to get one reply from a real company wanting to be a distributor? Entirely pointless.

A scam email trying to get us to validate our Apple Id  – pathetic.

The usual advance fee scam but this time in French about Monsieur Phillippe Marcot supposedly dying of cancer and wants to leave us 850,000 Euros. – But of course there will be advance fees to pay to get to the money but then the money never materialises and we would be out of pocket.

An email with no content – just an attached zip file and the sender’s name is Cowboy Bob.  Highly appropriate

An email from Jim wanting to sell us email lists. He has lists for lots of different industry categories, chief executives, professions such as doctors, nurses, attorneys, accountants etc. – Judging by the volume of rubbish emails we get to out of date email addresses and people long since gone – these lists for sale are mostly out of date junk. Time waster.

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