“Moon Jang” wants to share $21 million with me that is in a dormant account in the bank where he works. He presents me to the bank with fake documents he has prepared and they will hand me all that money to split with the email sender. There are still a lot of these ridiculous 419 scam emails but presumably some people are dumb enough to believe they can get that money. It doesn’t exist of course – just a scam for the unwary.
There seems to be a limitless number of bozos offering website design, SEO services etc. This latest one is from ‘John Goldstone’ and is a reasonably well written offer to do web design. However, the radio station received a dozen such emails – each from a different email address, using exactly the same words but with a different name. That’s a bit of a give away that it’s a scam.
“Your doctor lied to you. Exercise or a healthy diet is not the best way to reverse your diabetes” says the scammer trying to get you to click a link that says ‘Just One handful of this little known fruit…”. All rubbish of course. People should know better than to trust unsolicited emails rather than a medical professional.
“A new contract document has been shared with you on SharePoint storage. Sign in to view encrypted document”. A lot of business use Microsoft SharePoint so will recognise this kind of message. But the radio station this message was sent to doesn’t use SharePoint hence the message is an obvious fake.
“Zuccini, bell pepper, peas, kale …you might be eating this vegetable every day believing it to be super healthy like everyone else does…” Is the opening line of a simple health scam. It goes on to claim one of those four is banned in Europe due to excessive levels of toxin but another of those 4 veggies can cure diabetes. The scammer is either very confused and has mixed up two scams or thinks people are so dumb they will fall form it whatever she puts. Some vegetables do contain small amounts of toxin – that is well known e.g. you have to boil kidney beans to make them safe to eat in large amounts. Pathetic scammers.
