Apparently I have been randomly selected to be the beneficiary of $500.000,00 – at least according to the email from avs @admnkz.info. It says that Mr George Soros of the Open Society Foundation has donated the cash to me and I just have to reply to a completely different personal email address to arrange receipt of the funds. I wont be replying to such an obvious scam.
Another company is trying out the false data review scam. Rhetorik sent an email to a fake email address at the radio station. It claims they have lots of information about “James P.” and want him to correct any mistakes in that data. There is no such person – just a nasty form of Marketing carried out by unscrupulous data collection companies. It’s best never to respond such messages as it just tells them that you are a real person and hence your data is more valuable to them to sell on.
A very short email from Peggy Chan tells me that she has $9 million to share with me in a special business deal. I can have 50% and just need to reply to her to start the process. Of course she doesn’t know my name – just an email address and there is no money. This is the classic 419 scam where the scammer dangles the lure of a fortune but then takes sums of money until the victim realises it’s a scam.
A scammer claims in her email that a 3 second finger trick can bring back your crystal clear vision. It’s hard to imagine anyone dumb enough to believe this kind of rubbish but there must be some who do or the scammers would choose a different scam. “This works no matter how bad your vision is”. Yeah right.
A message tells me that someone wants to make an offer on my home, through the Homelight APP. That would be surprising as the scammer doesn’t know my name or address or even which country I live in. The email sender’s address is @cinemafly.click which does not sound like a realtor or estate agent to me. Simple rubbish sent out by the million.
