Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week

This is an example of a lazy email rather than a particularly stupid one.

Supposedly from Gracie White of Mydigiserv.online for which there is no website.

The email is a typical sales pitch for Search Engine Optimisation i.e. modifying my website to make it more attractive to search engines such as Google and hence likely to get a higher placement on search results.

The email starts with

Hi. Can I call you and take just 15 minutes of your time without any obligation and run through some ideas I have in mind to help your business grow and get you more leads, more customers and more revenue”

Then it goes on to say that what they actually do is get businesses on the first page of Google for their products and services and that they specialise in helping local businesses.

They haven’t looked at our website otherwise they would know Brooklands Radio doesn’t sell anything on the website and has no wish to do so, hence you cannot increase sales.

The domain name is registered in India and the email contains Americanisms. They claim to help local businesses but clearly the spam email has gone out across the world – that’s not exactly local to us.

There’s no company name on the email so this is likely the work of an individual.

It costs basically nothing to flood the world with badly written, dull useless emails and people do so.

They certainly don’t deserve to get any business from such poor behaviour.

Patriot Power Generator

There is a genuine product called a Patriot Power Generator and it’s for sale in America.

It is like it sounds but also things you don’t expect. The basic version contains:-

  • a power generator
  • Solar Panels
  • a 72 hour survival food kit
  • water filter
  • multi tool
  • reports about the power grid problems etc.

There are endless spam emails trying to sell these devices.

I can’t imagine these things selling well in the UK except for camping or caravans. But in America some people have the mind-set of not trusting the government and thereby wanting to take precautions against various extreme eventualities such as a long term power outage.

Californians already know what power outages are like – thanks to the days of the Enron Corporation.

The email selling these power generators focuses on creating paranoia

“It’s 8:47 am and people are panicking in the streets…

We are now in a state of emergency.

The look of fear in your family’s eyes hits you like a punch in the guts”

There’s lots more of this stuff.

Seems a very nasty way to sell power generators.
