Researchers have discovered the difference between thin people and people who can eat whatever they want and never gain weight and its down to a single molecule, claims the scam email. Perhaps many overweight people would love this rubbish to be true and choose to believe the scammer’s message. The message continues with a promise that this molecule can be activated in fat people and they immediately lose lots of weight. Entirely made-up rubbish for gullible people.
America seems to have more than its fair share of conspiracy theorists and the following email title is clearly aimed at them “The US government has hidden this cataclysm inside NASA for the last 4 years”. The message as is usual with these, does not specify the supposed problem just exhorts you to click the links to find out about this danger that has been kept from all of us. It’s just typical drivel as you would expect from someone selling their own brand of lunacy or just trying to get people to click a link that they get paid for.
As with all businesses, the radio station gets endless email offering search engine optimisation (SEO), web design and associated services. Some of these are from genuine small businesses looking for work but most are simply scam messages. This latest one appeals to business hit by Coronavirus. “Due to the recent global crisis with Covid-19 we are identifying businesses we believe we can help improve their online awareness. Maybe this is from a genuine business or maybe it’s a scam – either way it’s getting deleted. Anyone wanting SEO or web design or similar services should find a local business and work with them and definitely not reply to an email from someone you’ve never heard of and may be just a disguise for a crooked enterprise.
The old scam of Marketing companies offering a free supermarket gift voucher in return for filling out a survey is back again. This time it’s supposedly a £500 Morrisons voucher. However, there is no such thing as a £500 Morrisons voucher and Morrisons have no connection to these messages. The email addresses claims to be on behalf of Morrisons but is fact a random sounding company name made up for the purpose of the messages. You can choose to fill in the survey but don’t expect a reward for your trouble.
There are always Bitcoin scam emails in circulation. Every so often, on an almost regular schedule, new campaigns of Bitcoin scams appear. The latest ones are called Bitcoin Halving and talk about an ordinary Aussie guy who makes huge amounts of money from Bitcoin. There are also sets of these scam messages that use the name of the actress Kate Winslett, suggesting she is a believer in Bitcoin and has made a fortune from it. This is lies of course and the celebrities used by these campaigns do everything they can to stop the messages but it is difficult to do. Bitcoin investments have made some people into millionaires but far more people have lost money on Bitcoin – some their life savings. Bitcoin reached a price of $13,800 each in 2017 then fell to $3,400 the next year then rose to $10,900 in 2019 and in April 2020 fell to less than $200 each. It is incredibly volatile and should be avoided unless you have money you can afford to lose.
