“A mob of angry people desperate for paying too much on electricity bills almost slaughtered a guy who didn’t want to join them in the fight against the energy fat cats” is a dramatic opener for a scam message. Supposedly the guy concerned was getting his electricity free from a device that can harvest energy from the earth’s core. Seems to be a little too much watching of sci-fI films going on plus a lot of greed. Could anyone with an IQ above that of a peanut believe this kind of rubbish?
“10 sweet savings for your car every driver should know” seems like a harmless title for an email. But that’s just a hook to get people to open the message and is likely to be unconnected to the content of the message. The sender is seasonscroosing.xyz which doesn’t match with car savings so it’s a scam.
“Tesla’s Secret Project”, “Tesla Brings The Big Energy Collapse” and ‘Tesla Slashes Your Energy Bill by 80%” are typical scammer email titles designed to get your attention. Tesla is in the news a lot and they do radically new things at times, involving electricity. But there is no big secret – they just make huge numbers of batteries. That will not bring any energy collapse and cannot reduce your electricity bills.
An email arrived titled “Loan Offer” from palynn.com and the only contents is one line “Seeking a loan. Kindly reply for more details”. There aren’t many emails that it would be more stupid to reply to. What possibilities are there? A loan shark charging over 1000% interest, a scammer looking for your confidential details to sell to other scammers, a hacker collecting active email addresses to sell to spammers, a scammer looking for morons to add to their suckers list to sell on to more scammers or possible a kindly person with tons of money who wants to help out people in need? All but the last option are very likely. No thanks.
If you were an Arab Sheik working in a huge conglomerate in petroleum engineering with Saudi Aramco on a massive project would you send an email to a local radio station (where you don’t even know anyone’s name) asking them for a quotation for provision of huge earthworking machinery? Seems just a little unlikely. At least a billion times more likely is that it’s a simple scam.
