Chinese Spam Messages

You may receive emails in Chinese with a random sprinkling of long numbers, long number and letter combinations and occasional English words such as Instagram or Twitter.

Has the world switched to Chinese for international communication?

No.

These are typically spam messages, but often are selling the sort of services that spammers and scammers buy.

If interested, you can translate the messages easily online using Google translate or similar free service.

The messages contain offers such as “multi email content, multi email subject, random intelligent combination, staggered rotation of corporate email exchanges”.

This is offering services whereby the purchaser (scammer or spammer) provides a basic email message in a series of segments and the service ‘intelligently’ mixes up the segments per email message it sends out, uses a number of exchanges to send the messages, makes them look as if sent one at a time, changes the email title randomly and so on.  This is all designed to ensure the scammers or spammers messages get through to the unlucky recipients without being caught in spam filters by the recipients Internet provider or the recipients email service.

This is legal though clearly objectionable.

If you receive such email messages in Chinese – just delete them as they are spam.

So, what rubbish emails and calls have there been to Brooklands Radio station in the last few days?

A Chinese company want to sell us wax castings for making steel – apparently because they know that we buy these products from their competitors. Completely ridiculous

A website “Icelotto” offering to sell us Euro millions lottery tickets. But we can already buy them on the National Lottery website – so why would anyone pay money to an unknown third party? Crazy.

An American company wanting us to be a distributor for their slip resistant floor product. But their mailbox is a free one which means they don’t work for a business – it’s just a scammer.

Mrs Owen Morales has named us the sole beneficiary of the estate of Mr Owen Harry Morales and its valued at $21 Million. Yeah right. Completely Legit !   

These people just waste our time and clog up the Internet with rubbish.
