The email exhorts me to update my Amazon account, as a temporary limit has been placed on it. This scam specifically wants me to update the payment method i.e. the scammer is after financial information so as to steal from me. The message is obviously a scam and if there was any doubt – it has been sent to a dead email address that cannot possibly ever have had an Amazon account.
Yet another cancer cure turns up on email. It claims to reveal the zombie outbreak that causes all chronic disease including cancer. Supposedly discovered at the Pennsylvania School of Medicine. This school does carry out cancer research and is linked with pharmaceutical companies but there they certainly have not announced any cancer cures. Just a scammer making things up as usual.
“Doctors cannot explain why this insane method passes every lab test”. The word ‘insane’ in this context tells you immediately that the message is a scam as it’s one of the scammer’s favourite words and its use is intended to work for people with a disbelief in authority. The message also claims ‘over 33.477’ people have already improved their hearing with this method. Quoting a specific number like this points to a scam as no-one knows how many people actually use any method and the phrase ’over NNNN’ means the number is made up. The message is actually claiming that an incredibly strong mineral will restore your hearing regardless of the reason for hearing loss. There are so many pointers to this being a scam that it’s amazing anyone could not spot that – but who knows?
Apparently the American government cannot believe they missed out on such an important discovery. This is another email claiming some magical way to generate electricity so you never have to pay an electric company bill again. If only it was that simple, but it isn’t. This email claims a small town in Orlando powers its homes for free and the picture what looks like electric pickup points along the side of a road. It is possible to generate electricity from cars passing over plates under the tarmac but you would need millions to power a small town and that’s not very practical as it would costs a fortune. Scammers sometimes take true stories and twist them ridiculously to con people. Don’t believe such rubbish.
A message arrives that contains around 200 lines and all of it seems to be random words in a foreign language – possible Indonesian as the word Indonesia turns up every so often in the giant word list. Other odd phrases also occur every so often such as ‘poker online’ or ‘bonuses paid’ and ‘promo bonus’. Very weird but very much a scam of some kind.
