You can understand a few people falling for scams that offer a new natural remedy for a long term problem such as arthritis or diabetes.
But at times the scammer’s sales pitch is so ridiculously over the top that it’s hard to believe anybody could possibly believe it.
A message arrived from “Special Oxygen Foods” titled “Nature’s Gift to Mankind”.
“For over 200 years, experts around the world have actually been using these special natural remedies to heal almost everything ailment” (the grammatical mistake is probably deliberate by the scammer)
“Learn how others are using these gifts to treat even the most chronic of ailments – this can cure every condition imaginable … eczema, hay fever, infertility, liver diseases and more”.
For a magic remedy that can cure everything it is strange the scammer picked out hay fever which although unpleasant is not exactly life threatening.
The message goes on about almost curing every ailment and ends with a link to allow you download your own free copy of this information.
