Another repulsive set of emails arrives, about a magical diabetes cure. These ones claim that one handful of a little known fruit taken after dinner each day will instantly bring your blood sugar levels back to normal. There’s also the usual conspiracy theory rubbish – this time about the scientist who discovered the fruit being sacked and ‘Big Pharma’ trying to discredit him. All lies of course.
A scammer offers the promise of a complete reversal of any memory or concentration problems by means of Harvard’s new memory loss breakthrough. Get it quick before ‘Big Pharma’ shut down the website. Of course, if you check the website of Harvard University there is no such breakthrough. Only a scammer’s imagination.
An email arrives from Andre Pena – this scammer makes no effort to make the email appear to be from a company email address. It is addressed to undisclosed recipients and says, “Hello Dear”. It claims my order has been processed and I have been charged $170.96 for a Barbour Gold Standard Collection – whatever that is. Just a lazy scammer making little effort.
An email claims that Santander Bank have had trouble verifying my account details so have suspended my access and I need to click the link to have it re-enabled. Seems rather unlikely as the sender’s email address is a random one in Japan, the emails says ‘Dear Customer’ so they have no idea who I am and I don’t even have a Santander account. I won’t be clicking any links in that email.
A very simple and obvious scam email arrives from Henry M. to tell me that his client wants to invest in my company as a silent investor. He doesn’t know my name or anything about me or whether I have a company – just wants to start the contact process leading to one or more scams. What company is that? No thanks loser.
