White Powder Supercharges Your Morning

This scam email is in the form of a story.

A story of how taking a drink each morning of a special white powder with water will turn your day into an energy filled wonder.

The magic stuff is on sale for just one penny per bag currently but only to special customers like me.

Further on in the story the powder is described as being unrefined sea salt, which makes no sense as sea salt is refined from sea water – that’s how you get the stuff.

The story goes on about how everyone is lacking salt and that causes anxiety and fatigue and wears out your kidneys and so on – but it’s just general meaningless drivel.

In fact, most people in advanced countries eat too much salt and that is a big contributor to high blood pressure and kidney damage.

The scammer has no samples – she just wants you to pay one penny so she gets your payment card details and then steal more from you or sell those details to other scammers.

How to Stop Brain Death

Many scammers target obvious health problems such as dementia, obesity, pain, diabetes, cancer etc.

This latest one mixes and matches.

How did a cute baby get 80 year old Jean out of a nursing home”.

“This brain trick made her lose 68 pounds”.

“Increase your memory by 90%”.

So, the scam is a mix of weight loss and memory restoration and a cure for ‘brain death’ whatever that is in the scammer’s mind.

She claims that a bizarre 10 second ritual after dinner every night will provide the magic answer to weight loss with no effort, a 90% memory improvement and fighting off brain death.

That’s an odd mix and obviously complete rubbish.

Just to top it off she calls this a “godsend”. Whoever’s God you believe it – it is unlikely to be bothered about magic weight loss unless it the God of scammers.

Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week Magic Pain Relief

Scammers love to offer some latest magical way to stop pain, because it’s an easy sell. So many people have long term pain that modern drugs are either to addictive for or cannot resolve so they look for alternatives.

Ancient healing technique backed by Harvard”.

The email has pages of junk such as:

How a 70 year old woman with crippling arthritis in her knee can now walk pain free”

“How one woman was able to stop her cholesterol meds”

“You can even rub away diabetes”

“Destroy all viruses”

The magic is supposedly in the ancient technique used by all parents that when a child bangs  their knee for example – if you rub it, that blocks the pain sensation so the child feels less pain.

But of course it’s not a cure in any sense – it just a temporary way to block pain signals.

Severe arthritis is painful because of damage in the joints – so reducing the pain sensation may be helpful but only works for the seconds you rub and does not cure anything so no-one with arthritis can possibly be cured by this.

As for eradicating viruses from your body or curing diabetes by rubbing – that is pathetically stupid.

Of course, if you check at Harvard University there is no such study.

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.
