There are endless scam messages claiming to be from PayPal – trying to get your login and password. This latest one shows order details for an iPhone I supposedly bought. The order has no name as the scammer doesn’t know my name so says ordered by my email address. The sender claims to be PayPal Store 28019 but is actually from a personal Gmail account so very obviously not PayPal, just a lying cheating criminal.
“Congratulations. Your email was randomly selected to be the beneficiary of $300.000,00 courtesy of the Open Society Foundation”. The email was sent from a personal Japanese domain name and the message says make contact to claim and it gives a different personal Gmail address. This is a common rubbish scam message.
Scammers send out endless emails to Americans offering magical ways of reducing or eliminating their electricity bills. They seem to target solar panels by claiming their product is much better than any kind of solar panel. This is ridiculous. Solar panels are well established and do save money but they cost to purchase and install and often the benefits are small compared to that upfront cost. This latest scammer claims a carpenter has discovered how to save $975 from your electric bill by a simple trick and MIT is stunned that this will kill solar panels. Pathetic rubbish from a dumb scammer.
An email from AA ORE claims it is the biggest mineral supplier in Africa and offers Feldspar, Pozzolan, Bentonite and numerous other minerals for sale. Why would any self-respecting mineral company send out bulk spam mail to random people. Obviously not real. Pathetic.
Julia’s email claims she is in Ukraine – a frontline worker and needs my assistance to help her move some funds from there. The actual sender’s email address is [email protected] which shows she is a very stupid scammer. Scammers choose a life of stealing from others but some have no morals at all – trying to take advantage of the desperate situation in Ukraine. The email is the start of a 419 scam – promising a reward but her plan is to steal instead from anyone open hearted enough to reply.
