Michelle O’s Belly is a strange name for an emailer but this one is a typical magic diet scammer. “Most folks are dropping an average of 31.2 pounds in the first 3 weeks. All because of one exotic fruit from Mexico”. Nope – the only thing being lost is any money paid to this scammer.
More supposed job applications arrive by email but always the same simple message, such as
“Hi, My name is Doreatha Micco and I’m interested in a job. I’ve attached a copy of my CV. The password is “1234”.
The name is different each time but it’s a simple message to get you to open the attached document which will be loaded with virus or other malware. The reason it has a password is to stop your anti-malware scanning it to warn you. No thanks.
An email claiming to be from someone who does work at the radio station and asking if we can make a payment today. Likely the scammer has found the staff name from our website or companies house records or similar. Pay a scammer – not a chance.
A message from Frances Moyer stating she has attached the latest credit and collection targets for me to review. No such person at the radio station and no such thing as credit and collection targets. Just a scammer guessing business messages.
Mrs Yusuf pleads for my help in getting her and her daughters out of Syria. Why would I want to help? Because she has $238 million to share. That’s quite an incentive but it’s all fake of course – a typical 419 scam where the victim ends up paying lots of small amounts while trying to get their hands on a non-existent pot of gold.
