“A breakthrough study has proven that an ugly plant turbo charges metabolism and melts fat”. Typical scammer lies, backed up by stupid claims such as “It’s 556 times more powerful than exercise – even when sleeping”. The 556 is an example of spurious accuracy. Any such study would not give figures like that as there is a great deal of estimating required in any such trial. The is no such study and the whole thing is laughably dumb.
The next scammer wants us to add one ounce of baking soda to tea in the morning and this will supposedly let you lose 23 lbs of fat in just 21 days. One ounce of baking powder is 5 to 6 teaspoons full which is quite a lot to take and taken regularly is likely to cause organ damage. There is no reason to believe that taking baking powder will reduce someone’s weight. Dumb and dangerous.
An email message claims to be from the radio station asking us to verify one of the radio station email addresses, as it requires an update. But the message sender is actually ka.boom @lawyersofarizona.com which is obviously not the radio station. Ludicrous.
“Brain leak to cause blindness” is a strange email title but this scammer wants to frighten people then reassure them there is an answer to the problem. The email follows the typical scam template of warnings laced with testimonials and supposed scientific proof all ending up with demanding that you watch the video clip. All lies of course – just a scammer trying to get people to watch a useless video for which they get paid.
Not many scammers send malware infected spreadsheets, but those files can contain macros which do try install malware on your computer. “Attached are reconciliations of the payroll/ funding for April” is a title that would convince few people to open the attached spreadsheet (file type xls) but some will because it sounds important or just out of curiosity. That would be a bad move though – once opened the spreadsheet can infect your device. Never open attached files unless you know the person who sent you the email and it is a document you asked for.
