Tesco Bank tell me they are closing all their accounts and credit cards and moving them to a new platform. My account wasn’t migrated due to incomplete information so I need to supply those missing pieces then my accounts will be active at the new platform. It is a little difficult to believe this is a true message from Tesco Bank as it is addressed to someone who died 12 years ago. Spammers don’t bother updating their spam lists – it’s cheaper to keep sending out the rubbish emails by the million instead
Apparently my order has been shipped. Plus, the signed documents are attached in the email. So I have nothing to worry about says Ahmed Sahaj of Arabian Industries. But I haven’t ordered anything from Arabian Industries and the attached files are actually .bz2 files which are compressed archives designed for such as video games, not simple documents. So, I wont be opening the attached files which are no doubt nasty malware.
“The cause of your belly fat has been found”. That’s a typical scam message title – designed to attract your attention and offer a solution to a difficult problem. Losing weight is very difficult for most people and most of us d need to lose more weight, but there is no magic answer. This latest scam offers a new dinner ritual; that supposedly teaches your body to release belly fat once you are asleep and an exotic fruit that has magic properties. Typical scammer rubbish.
There are so many companies selling mailing lists of various kinds that it’s a wonder any of them make a living. But it does explain why the quality of the data is so poor and why the sellers resort to tricks such as taking a company’s domain name then simply guessing email addresses and selling that list. Neida of apexcontactlist may well be a genuine seller of company lists from her set of 40 million records. Or maybe it’s all fake and she has no idea or even doesn’t exist. Who cares?
“The Earth’s core produces 47 trillion Watts of electricity right beneath our feet each and every second”. It’s a good opening line for a scam and the rotation of the Earth’s core does create the magnetic field around the Earth and does generate electricity. But it’s a little hard to get to – being around 3,000 kilometres beneath the Earth’s surface. Let’s leave the scammer to find out how to put some cables that far down. It’s all rubbish of course.
