Stupidest Spam of the Week Stop Cancer

There are endless scammers offering magic remedies for various illnesses and complaints. Some even choose cancer for their remedies.

This scammer wants to cover all bases and her remedy supposedly cures cancer, diabetes, arthritis and all viruses including AIDS.

What is the remedy?

Apparently it’s an exercise that takes 5 minutes once per day.

How can she prove it’s genuine – by claiming to have documented medical case studies dating back over 5,000 years.

We have very little information on language from that long ago but there are Egyptian records going back thousands of years, Sanskrit was spoken, Akkadian was in use and a form of ancient Chinese.

Which language was her medical studies written in?

We don’t find out but obviously it’s all just made up rubbish – there is no magic exercise and no records.

A truly pathetic scammer.

Stupidest Spam of the Week Garlic Ears

Why you should put garlic in your ear before going to sleep” is a ridiculous headline heralding a ridiculous email message about lost health remedies.

There are probably thousands of books proclaiming long lost remedies and books of kitchen medicines, home-made potions to cure all ills, grand-mothers methods, ancient healing potions etc. and many will contain ideas that could work e.g. the age old remedy for indigestion is peppermint tea.

But, equally many of the old remedies are dangerous or just plain wrong. People have believed in the most ludicrous things in the past (and some still do).

This message claims:-

”the most powerful natural painkiller”

“the most powerful natural cures lost to mankind”

“when medicines vanish you’ll need this on your bookshelf”

turn your backyard weeds into antibiotics”.

No. Better to stick with modern medicine for anything serious and be careful over which kitchen remedies you try.

The line about garlic in your ears isn’t explained in the message and I wont be buying any book just to find the no doubt strange reason behind such a practice.

Stupidest Spam of the Week Immortality

The email title is ‘Immortality Possible?’

Obviously, the answer is no, but scientists are making progress in understanding the factors that can lead to longer lives and in particular to longer lives in a healthy state.

However, this scam email is not about science – just a series of buzz words to try to get the readers to click to buy a bottle of magic elixir.

It starts off talking about the fountain of youth – perhaps been watching too many old movies.

Then says it’s about an ancient superfood. That word superfood is just a Marketing term – it has no meaning.

Then the email switches to phrases such as “powerful antioxidant” which is intended to impress, but then  dark chocolate, vitamin C and beans for example are also powerful antioxidants.

Then it moves on to the Aztecs then a Japanese longevity secret lost since 1596 and so on.

All lies of course – the scammer just wants your financial details to sell to other criminals

There is no fountain of youth except in comic books.

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.
