Deol Bhagwan tells us that he represents an investment company and is willing to fund any projects we have. This is such an obvious lie that you wouldn’t expect anyone to believe it – not even the approximately one in a million who like to reply to such scams. His email address is @consultant.com which sounds like a business email address but is in fact a personal one available to anyone.
Whoopee! A message from Amazon congratulating me on my Christmas win. I just have to click the link to find my regards. Sadly – it’s fake of course. The message is from coachslider.com which is not Amazon. The only reward is for the scammer when people do click the link and get conned.
Eric Abbas is an accountant with a client with the same surname as me and he wants to put me forward as the legal recipient of the dead man’s estate. Trouble is that Mr Abbas doesn’t know my name so it’s just a scam of course.
An email from Investment Corporate offers us loans for any purpose at 3% interest. But, the sender is using a Gmail address instead of a business account hence it is a scam. Plus, no one in their right mind offers a set rate of interest without knowing what the loan is for and what security there is. SCAM
An email arrives asking us to complete the attached KYC forms and return them. No idea what KYC forms are and we wont be opening the attachments as they are in ISO format (i.e. the file suffix is .iso) and that format is used for making archives on optical disks. The only reason to send such files in an email is for a scammer trying to avoid anti-malware checks. Just delete anything that comes with .iso files by email.
