“A Japanese fix for belly fat” is the title of another scam email. It’s supposed to be a completely natural method for getting rid of that fat belly, was discovered in Japan and uses ingredients in everyone’s kitchen. Apparently weight loss clubs hate this remedy, which is surprising as it’s secret. Just a typical pathetic scam.
Scammers love their catchy email titles, such as ‘WAIT! Don’t throw out those old jeans. Here’s how to fit into them again with a weird exotic fruit trick’. For anyone used to getting these emails, this is a classic title – containing an instruction “Wait” then rouses your curiosity with “Don’t throw out the jeans” then entices you to read more with ‘Here’s how to …”. There is a strange picture in the email that shows a frying pan with thin red liquid and an unrecognisable white thing the size of a lemon. As always it is supposed to be a secret but also claims that over 200,000 people already use this. Must be big supplies of this ‘exotic’ fruit.
Mrs Bill Chantal tells me I have been compensated with $4.4 million by the United Nations. The money will be loaded onto an ATM card and sent to me as soon as I provide the details of my bank account, address, passport details and my Whatsapp account. Strange that someone who wants to give me lots of money doesn’t even know my name or that she’s sent the email to an admin address of a hospital.
Yet another text message claiming to be from the Post office and that I have to click the link to pay the outstanding shipping fee to be paid. Sadly there are many millions of these message sent out every day. Never click the link in such messages – if you’re unsure if it’s real then login to the actual Post office website or APP to check, but never click that link.
Alzheimer’s toes is a new one in the world of scam email titles. It’s just another magical remedy to reverse Alzheimer’s and claims that one woman did a special toe exercise for 28 days and regained all of her memories without needing any medication. These stories are laughably bad but still they circulate.
