An email tells us we have to confirm the password for one of our email accounts or risk losing it. The message claims to be from the radio station but is fact from prpfnf.co.kr which is the republic of Korea. Our radio station is not in Korea, so it’s a scam.
Yet another supposed diabetes remedy email. This one claims it has a secret that your doctor and the scientists wont tell you – about this magical way to cure the medical condition in just 30 seconds per day using an ancient remedy. Then you can eat all the sweet food you want with no spike in your blood sugar. Only likely if the remedy kills the patient. An unpleasant way to cure diabetes.
The next scam email offers instant tooth cavity repair. You have to mix coconut oil with a secret mineral only known by the scammer and then use it to fill any cavities instantly. It is supposed to be a secret, but the email also says that millions of people have done this and there’s a 100% success rate. Anyone who’s had cavities treated by a dentist knows that step 1 by the dentist is to remove the decay that has caused the cavity and clean it completely as otherwise putting a filler over the hole will just let the decay continue underneath until the tooth is eaten away. Stupid scammer.
Most scammers are fairly dumb, but this latest one sent an email with the first line ‘Please advise your most competitive price and expedited delivery for the attached items asap on or before 27.24.2021’ but forgot to attach the supposed list of products. Depending on whether it’s an American or English date format, it’s either the 24th or 27th month of 2021 which makes it sometime in the year 2023. What a moron.
There are huge numbers of emails claiming to be from Chinese companies offering all sorts of products and it can be difficult to tell if they are genuinely stupid people who think that sending out emails by the billion to random email addresses is the best way to get business from people outside China or are they just scam emails. One recent one is titled ‘Signage Manufacturing’ and says it’s from xgxsigns.com. But the message contains simple grammatical and spelling mistakes such as ‘price competition,high quanlity I am thomsom’ and there is no excuse for that as everyone has spell checkers and grammar checkers. So, probably scams.
