An email offers me £90 if I take part in a simple Sainsbury’s shopping experience survey. No-one in their right mind would pay £90 for filling in a simple survey so is obviously lies, plus the email is not from Sainsbury’s but from xxzfrfzxult.co.uk. Anything too good to be true is always a scam.
“Backyard plant gives you perfect vision” is the title of incoming emails. It looks like a scam, sounds like a scam. It is a scam. Not surprising. The message claims to have found the real cause of fading vision. Sadly it’s very common for these scammers to claim magical answers to common problems. Always lies though.
Yet another fake DHL message to say that my shipment is on its way and I can click the link to see the details. It’s a simple phishing scam. If you click the link it asks for personal information which can then be sold to other criminals. The message claims to be from DHL and has copied their graphics but is from colihauteya @hotmail.com which gives it away.
A more entertaining than usual scam message has the title “Cleopatra’s Love Making Secret for Fat Loss”. That is an odd mix in the title and the message goes on to claim that Alexander the Great used this 100% natural fat loss powerhouse. Perhaps the scammer watched a historical film and was inspired to write this rubbish. It has a list of ridiculous claims including that it gives your body life giving oxygen. I thought beathing gave us life giving oxygen rather than foodstuffs and odd supplements. Ridiculous.
There are endless diabetes scams as it is a major health problem with no easy solution. Scammer’s offer all sorts of magic remedies. This latest scammer goes for magic fruit. “Anyone can activate these secret antidiabetic cells just by adding this sweet fruit to their breakfast”. Obviously rubbish but maybe some people are so desperate for a magic answer, that they trust and click to watch the video. They will be very disappointed when they find out they are paying for nothing.
