Kt-Marketing can give me access to an IPO that has the whole City of London talking and the business will give access to the massive energy demands of Africa currently worth £32 Billion. KT-Marketing are best known for cheap tricks rather than serious investment opportunities so I’ll give it a miss.
Yet another magic cure for diabetes has been found although only Doctor Sanjay Gupta knows what it is. Plus of course, the whole diabetes industry is covering this up as scammers like adding an element of conspiracy to their pathetic stories. He even believes that diabetes is contagious. The email is actually from locationsearch.info so looks like it’s just a Marketing outfit looking for leads to sell on.
A pathetically simple email message from galshamir39 @gmail.com asks if I’m interested in a loan of up to $100,000. There’s no attempt to appear business like, the scammer uses a personal email address (Gmail) and there’s no company name etc.It’s patently obvious that it’s just a phishing message looking for idiots to reply and then the scammer knows the email address is active and is owned by a moron so that name and address will go on a suckers list to be sold to other criminals.
“Doctors and patients alike are rejoicing as a brand new painkiller is set to US market this week”. The message has lots of junk about how many Americans are addicted to painkillers and how ineffective there are but now there’s a new drug available free when you join the trial. No. No such new drug and certainly pharmaceutical companies don’t recruit for trials by sending out mass emails to random people.
A warning from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about a pandemic. But the message actually contains a virus – a scammer’s sense of humour I assume.

There are endless scam emails pretending to be APPLE or Microsoft or PayPal or a hundred other companies asking you to enter your identity information to verify your login or reset your password or something similar.
Then they can use the information to access your financial information or maybe sell your details to other scammers.
This specific scam includes a warning of a virus. The message says
Dear Apple customer. This is to inform you that a virus has been detected in our iTunes database and to ensure you don’t lose access to your account, you must re-validate your details immediately.
Now APPLE don’t send out messages for you to click and validate so its obviously a scam.
Your receive a call from someone with important information for you – your PC has a virus.
The caller claims to be from Microsoft or another famous computer company or a bank or Internet company and they are calling you to help. I remember that this scam was popular about 12 – 18 months ago but seems to be becoming prevalent again.
Next, they try to convince you to install some special software to remove the virus, but it will actually allow them to access your passwords and account details and perhaps control your PC. Sometimes they charge you for the software or for their ‘help’. Charges between of up to £300 have been reported to Action Fraud. Then they tell you the problem is solved but in fact your PC never had the virus and they may take more and larger sums of money from your credit card.
Legitimate computer companies, broadband providers and banks will never call you out of the blue to say your computer needs repairing or ask for remote access to your device. If you do get such a call, don’t follow their instructions, don’t pay anything.
It’s a scam.
Never divulge your password or PIN to anyone by phone and don’t believe unknown callers.
