Amayah Vinson wants to sell to me the details for the 18,000 people who signed up to attend the UK Games Expo. This is obviously fake as those people didn’t sign up for their email addresses etc. to be sold to random people.
Mr Chen Chung works in Hong Kong and has $18,991,691 that he needs to move from a bank there to any other country and is willing to cut me in if I help him. His email address is testtest@… and that’s not a good sign and he wants me to reply to a different personal email address – also a bad sign. Plus he doesn’t know my name. Could anyone believe that a person who doesn’t even know your name wants to trust you with their millions of dollars? There is no money and no-one named Chen Chung, just a 419 scam to catch greedy stupid people.
There are numerous businesses that buy and sell lists of email addresses, physical addresses etc. and some go out of business. One trick used by scammers is pretending to be such a business shutting down and hence ‘giving away’ its lists at usually 90% or 95% or 99% discount. These are lies of course – they are after your financial information so they can add you to their spammers list for sale and to identity thieves. If you get one of these massive discount offers – don’t think yourself to be lucky – more the opposite as the scammers are targeting you.
An email arrives from 787266602911-erp092932120-poqwa232233222 @… Is anyone going to believe that is not from a scammer? It claims there have been abnormal activities on my email account so they have blocked it and I have to click the link to release the block. Pathetic drivel from a pathetic scammer.
A message tells me that the version of NHS jobs I have been using will close shortly and I need to register on the new website for NHS jobs. No – never heard of NHS jobs website and certainly not looking to work in the NHS. No thanks even if it was true, which it isn’t.
