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.

Stupidest Scam or Spam of the Week

An email from info @wlcreation.biz claims to be from a Marketing Manager named Roma who works for a leading online Marketing company.

She wants to do SEO for us. That is search engine optimisation on our website to improve out ranking on Google and Bing and other search engines.

And she says she has ideas for our website.

That could be believable except in the next paragraph she asks what our website URL is so how can she have ideas for our website when she doesn’t even know what it is let alone have actually looked at it.

If she had looked at the radio station website she might have seen that we don’t use to sell anything hence her offer to increase the sales from our website is rather dumb.

The email has no company name so I assume she is just a lone worker trying to get business – but she needs to think a lot more and write worthwhile email not off the shelf junk that only shows her laziness.
