Inflammation Belly Scam

The email title is ‘Flatten Your Inflammation Belly’ which is interesting as there is a lot of recent research suggesting that inflammation plays an important part in how quickly we age.  Also that diet and exercise can lead to increases in inflammation which can be damaging.

This interest is why the scammer picked the subject.

However, the email is just a typical scam.

It says “80% of men and women over 40 suffer from this problem”.

Do this one simple trick to flatten your inflammation belly”.

There’s lots of pointless detail and it ends up with

“Do this one trick to wake-up 1 pound lighter tomorrow”

So, where does the one pound go – does it de-materialise or does a chunk of flesh simply fall off.

There’s an unpleasant thought.

No thanks

Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week Heart Tar

Scammers have pounced on another ancient medicine and claim magical effects for it from curing almost any disease to removing all plaque from your arteries instantly.

The ancient Indian Ayurvedic holistic system of medicine uses many ingredients as supplements and medicines that are little known to Western medicine.

One such ingredient is Shilajit which is a black substance found  in some rocky areas in the Himalayas and is thought to be largely decomposed plant remains.

It does contain a lot of chemicals and has been used for centuries in Ayurveda but there have been very few scientific studies of its effects so it’s largely a case of some people claiming various properties for the substance and as yet there isn’t the evidence to prove or disprove them.

The scammers claim that within days “your heart will be pumping like it did when you were 20 years old!”

There is no evidence for this and it is clearly impossible – just a claim from a scammer.

The scammers also claim there are no side effects whereas the limited studies carried out have identified many side effects known to have happened to takers of the substance, including  hormone imbalance.

It is likely the substance has some beneficial effects on health when correctly prescribed, but as with all such medicine there will be problems and it is not a magic pill.

Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week Effortless Weight Loss

Lots of scammers target people wanting to lose weight as obesity is such a common problem in advanced countries and the standard method of restricting calories and/or exercising more can be difficult and perhaps unpleasant for many.

The email shows a cartoon of a woman eating a giant cup cake and has the slogan ”Stuff Your Face. Lose Weight”.

Perhaps that’s the Holy Grail for many aspiring to lose weight but of course it isn’t possible and would be very unhealthy if it was.

Your body needs nutritious food especially if you are restricting the calories, so using that calorie allowance on junk food would cause a range of health problems.

The scammer doesn’t worry about such things as she has no weight loss method – except for reducing the size of your wallet or purse. The pages of fake email end up with a video that you must watch and she exhorts you to watch till the end and you will immediately be dropping pounds afterwards.

No – it’s all just lies.

The scammer claims to be at least 5 years ahead of weight loss science. Nope – but perhaps destined for 5 years in prison when caught.

Type I Diabetes Cure Scam

There are lots of scammer’s messages advertising cures for diabetes.  But they normally quote type II diabetes which is due to lifestyle factors including weight, diet, levels of exercise etc.

HEALTH ALERT

Rid yourself of Diabetes forever

Type II diabetes can be helped by lifestyle changes plus an improved diet and more exercise.

But type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body cannot produce enough insulin and is normally diagnosed in early childhood.

Changes to lifestyle, diet and exercise cannot cure type I diabetes, only mitigate the effects and it’s a lifelong illness.

But some scammers are so stupid they claim to have the magical cure for type I diabetes.

“Type I and II diabetes can be cured with this simple food within 7 days”

This is just dumb and hopefully anyone with type I diabetes knows enough about the disease to realise this is just a pathetic scam.

Stupidest Spam of the Week – Brain Disease Fix

As a scammer, if you’re going to offer a magical way to stop one brain disease then why not say your remedy can fix all known brain diseases – especially the most common ones of dementia, Alzheimer’s and all forms of memory loss.

My heart froze as I watched the video explaining how these brilliant scientists cured Alzheimer’s, dementia and the other brain diseases in 100% of patients”. 

This is all supposed to be secret although the cure has reportedly already worked on 7,000 people, so not exactly secret after all.

Then comes the clincher. “But Big Pharma is already knocking on their doors to sell out the formula”.

It’s all fantasy of course. There haven’t been any such trials, various brain diseases have different causes and need different forms of help so one magic remedy for everything is impossible especially as Alzheimer’s and Dementia cause a reduction in the number of brain cells and no formula can fix that.
