Bitcoin is really popular with scammers this week – endless scam messages with titles such as “Ride the wave of Bitcoin”. That’s likely to keep being popular till Bitcoin crashes (if it ever does)
Herpes cures – titles such as “Get rid of it fast” sent from dozens of different names.
The ever popular Flight Simulator game is still on Clickbank paying very high commission to anyone who can get you to click onto their site and buy:-
“Are you a Good Pilot?”
“Learn to Fly Any Plane”
“Fly Anywhere in the World”
Then there’s always Shark Tank best product ever examples, such as :-
“Get Your Weight Back With This Shake”
and “This Product Changes Everything”
Although Shark Tank is a perfectly good American TV series, the name is used extensively by scammers so a mention of Shark Tank almost ensures the message is a scam.
Russian girls love you. Endless emails claiming to be a Russian girl who thinks you are cute. More likely it’s some ugly guys in a garage, churning out this trash, looking for victims. ”My name is Maria and I’m from Russia”.
“Earn a guaranteed $13,000 in 24 hours” If it was true then the scammer wouldn’t need to send out such messages to catch desperate people.
Then there’s hair restorer claims still popular with scammers – gives you a full head of hair within days.
The basic scams stay the same but are often dressed in new clothes to con new people.
All very sad.
