Over the last couple of months there have been a lot of emails from spammers offering what appear to be good investment opportunities.
These are not the 200% return scams that you see, but are more modest offers in unusual things.
e.g. Dozens of emails about an investment in self-storage.
These emails have various titles such as ‘Highest Yielding Sector’, or ‘Developer Guarantees’, or ‘Fully Managed’, or ‘Effortless Income’, or anything similar to catch the eye.
The messages go on about guaranteed returns from a 6 year lease already in place upon completion, making this a high yielding and hassle free investment.
Invest from £3,750
There are other similar offers by email for apartments in Liverpool or Leeds, houses in Huddersfield, garages, renovated houses in Bradford and many more.
The sender of the messages about self-storage uses a csgoswan.net email address and that has been linked to various spams and scams in the past.
Maybe some of these unusual investments are real, but take care if you’re thinking of investing. Investigate the company behind the proposal and don’t take their word for anything – check it out independently first.
It is extremely unlikely that anyone with a genuine investment would send out huge volumes of spam messages about it.
