An email from info @admunupdate.online claiming to be from my email provider. And that I must verify my account or it will be terminated. Just a dumb scammer.
An email telling me that a new discovery by a doctor will fix my blurry vision, near sightedness, glaucoma, AMD and any other eye related illness. But I must keep this secret (as the email has probably only gone out to 100 million people so far. If not kept secret then the eye care industry will take down the website offering the miracle remedy. This is pathetic in so many ways.
Oh. Gillette has selected me for a new promotional offer. I get to choose the product and it is delivered free of charge and I just tell them what I think of it. Sounds good but it’s a scam. Companies do give away product at times to the public but it’s always in a controlled situation where they or the Marketing company running the promotion have your details and you have been selected as matching the criteria they set. This kind of email is just sent out by the million by scammers and is a con – they just want your personal information to sell to other scammers.
A shipment is due to arrive today but if I’m not home then I just have to click the link and select a new date for delivery or leave instructions on where to drop off the package instead. An obvious con. The scammer relies on enough people expecting a delivery to click the link before they realise it’s a scam. Never click on any link unless you are very sure who sent you the message and that it is genuine. This one is a simple phishing attempt – if you click the link it goes a web page that will ask for your full name and address and contact details.
“Dentists baffled Patented device whitens your teeth in 9 minutes”. Nope – nothing baffling. Teeth whitening kits are basically acidic solutions that strip away the outer layers of your teeth to make them look whiter. The quicker they work – the stronger the solution must be. Better to go to a professional for teeth whitening than risk damaging your teeth permanently with a kit that contains potentially dangerous ingredients.
