Stupidest Scam of the Week Salt Lamps

Create a unique stress-free room”.

“Your sleeping problems will soon disappear”.

“Purifies the air”.

“Improve your immune system”.

“Oxygenate the brain”.

These are typical claims of scam offers selling salt lamps and especially Himalayan salt lamps.

These do exist and are lumps of Himalayan pink salt with a light bulb in the centre.

They are decorative pieces and perfectly safe to use.

But the scammers keep sending out deluges of emails claiming endless health claims for them which cannot be verified.

If you want such a lamp because it looks nice then find a good supplier – do not reply to spam emails.

If you want the claimed health benefits – you would do better to look elsewhere than a lump of salt with a bulb in it.

Stupidest Scam of the Week Magic Cure

Ok, so there seems to be an endless supply of scam messages based on magic cures for any ailment you can imagine and many claim to cure everything.

This latest scam message contains the usual scammer language of ‘a weird trick’, ‘scientists are baffled’, ‘no side effects’, ‘incredibly simple to use’, ‘used thousands of years ago’ etc. and it’s from an xyz Internet domain name i.e. miscellaneous.

So, what does it say?

Once in a while a miracle happens and a little girl who was condemned to death by traditional medicine …”.

her uncle, out of desperation, found this long lost remedy used by Kings of 2000 years ago”

Rather than specialising in magic cured for one or two diseases, this one invents a magic remedy that can cure everything, including asthma, allergies, the common cold, cystic fibrosis, ear infection etc.

It even cures smokers cough. But that is caused by smoke damage to the lungs over years of smoking and the only remedy is to stop smoking and in enough years your body will very slowly repair the lung tissue.

The magic remedy is claimed to be 3 times more powerful than penicillin but most of the ailments are viruses and hence penicillin has no effect on them e.g. the common cold.

Maybe the scammer has some useless remedy to ship out to gullible people but more likely there is nothing and the scammer just takes any money gullible people send in.

Stupidest Scam of the Week Magic Scales

There are endless diets on the market. Most are genuine in the sense that people believe in them although in most cases there is no meaningful scientific proof of effectiveness.

There is also a huge number of scam diets on the market – created simply to make money for the seller.

This latest scam offers for sale a scale that ‘definitely solves your weight problems’.

A device that tells you your weight is not going to solve an weight issues.

The message claims that the scale uses latest technology to track your weight over time. It’s controllable by Bluetooth from your phone and IOS and Android APPS.

It’s also claimed to be ultra modern design and available in a range of colours.

The message is from fareginlog.xyz which is not the domain name for a reputable trader.

Maybe the scale exists and maybe it doesn’t – that doesn’t matter as a device that lists your weight over time may be of interest but is not capable of solving weight problems and surely anyone can see that and not be taken in by such rubbish?.

Stupidest Scam of the Week Reverse High Blood Sugar

There are many scammers who use people’s fear of diabetes to get them to agree to stupid offers.

The email title is “The two worst lies that your doctor tells”.

This is a standard scammer’s appeal to the idea of conspiracies, which seems to work best in the USA.

Then “This man’s blood sugar went from 1,200 to 120 in a matter of weeks”.

There are no units listed with the numbers, so the numbers are meaningless and it’s obvious that a blood sugar that drops by 90% is wrong.  The numbers appear to be just random numbers that the scammer thinks look good.

Next the scammer claims this method will cure diabetes entirely in a short time and doesn’t require any drugs or even diet improvements.

Can you imagine someone living on a high fat high sugar diet but with perfect health – pass the mars bars in batter and the deep-fried pizza to go with the buckets of ice cream and donuts.

No thanks.

Stupidest Scam of the Week Free Dangerous Dog Food

There are endless scam emails, social media posts and websites telling you about ‘the one food you must never eat’, or ‘the three foods that are killing you’,  or ‘this weird trick that will extend your life for decades’ etc.

Perhaps the market is saturated with this kind of drivel and scammers are looking for new markets to attract gullible people willing to part with their money for just a dumb promise.

Now, scammers are trying to extend this rubbish to pets.

“Your dog’s food may be shortening their life”.

Most dog parents have no idea these ingredients are so harmful”.

 “A leading veterinarian has exposed the Dog Health Destroyers hiding in their food”.

“ One simple trick that can make your dog thrive”.

These statements are copied from similar messages about human health and the message is from bettercablesky which is obviously an email address used previously for other purposes by the scammer.

Never believe this kind of stuff, whether it applies to humans or animals.
