‘Sophia Ellis’ wants me to believe that she is offering her expertise in email address verification, but the message doesn’t contain a company name and the email sender’s address is health.maketomopcom which does sound like a lazy scammer couldn’t even be bothered getting a decent sounding email address to send these scam messages from. No thanks.
As we get into summer, more air conditioning scam messages start to appear. This latest one claims “this personal air cooler can cool down any part of your home in no time”. It works from a USB lead so must be very small and have all of the air conditioning power of an asthmatic mouse attempting to blow the heat away. Air coolers normally work by blowing air over water which does cool the air but they only work in small enclosed places and cannot compete with any kind of real air conditioning.
Sam is trying to sell animation software called IllusionMage. Normal sales emails are sometimes honest but still effective and sometimes give false impressions and sometimes are just lies. This one is a con as it claims you can make the same quality animation as Pixar and Disney, but at home. Not true. It says the offer is only open for three days but these emails keep coming so that’s also a lie. If you want to buy anything online find a reputable seller and do your research and never trust unsolicited emails.
Some scams offer free products and this latest one using Donald Trump’s name claims to give away Donald Trump Keep America Great hats. Maybe they could give away promotional items to small groups for conventions etc. or maybe give away really cheap paper stuff at times, but the message claims the hats sell for $39.99 and they give them away to everyone who asks. Not true. Just a phishing scam to get your private information.
“Ancient invention generates energy on demand”. Sounds useful. Then it claims a crazy professor makes energy from the surface of the earth and everyone can, The video you have to click to see how its done will only be on the Internet for a day longer because big industry is trying to shut it down. All lies of course. There are many ways to generate electricity but they are well known and available already.
