Mohammed Abdulahim tells me he’s a relationship officer in a wealth management company and wants me to help him invest his customer’s money. He would have to pretty bad at his job to ask for investment guidance from strangers via spam emails. But of course, he’s a scammer looking to trap greedy people.
Win a £250 Morrisons gift card says the email. There is no such things as a £250 gift card from Morrisons and they have nothing to do with these scams. It’s just a phishing scams looking to get confidential information from people stupid enough to reply to the message.
Next is a more detailed message starting with the title “The #1 nutrient deficiency that’s making you ill”. It then goes on about how bacteria and viruses enter your body cells because of a deficiency, which of course the message sender can fix. In case you’re not convinced the end of the email also says that this nutrient will make you lose weight without otherwise changing your diet or doing any exercise. This scammer tells a good story but clearly thinks people are stupid. Let’s hope no-one is stupid enough to reply to him.
An email containing my payroll slip has good news – that I have a £295 winter holiday gift from the company I work for. However the email is from smokymountainnaturals and I do not work for them and have never hard of them so sadly it’s just a scam.
Yet another con targeting people suffering from diabetes. The title of this one is ‘It’s possible your beta cells look like this”. What are beta cells? The email doesn’t explain but it’s mean to sound scientific and the message continues with a story about how doing ‘this’ for just 5 seconds a day will control my blood sugar effortlessly. Sounds dramatic but is obviously yet another lie by a sick scammer.
