Today I received this ridiculous email.  Why on earth would I pay $450 for a domain name?  Typical prices for new domain names range from 88c to around $35.  This domain has no content and no ranking in Google. I very sweetly offered to send this joker a list of the domain names that I ...

Good Day

Obviously the Vic Chairman of one of the world’s major banks would send you a random email with the subject “Good Day” (heavy sarcasm there).  I imagine he has sent quite a few if his client had the “same last name” as I do.  I have one of the UK’s most common surnames – there ...

error-warning-alert-critical
A friend rang me today.  As you can see from the attached screenshot she had a pop up in Firefox warning her of a critical error.  The website she’d been taken to had a female voice warning her that her computer was infected and she should phone an 0800 number. I did a whois search ...

Do You Take Card?

I am being sent this bit of spam repeatedly to non other than an email address associated with this website! Finally, I went to their website.  It claims to be “Card Machines UK”.  The domain name is best described as gobbledegook. It has a fake TRUSTe logo on it and a fake MacAfee Site Advisor ...

NIP Notice Number | 57ZA5

Help, panic.  Greater Manchester Police are going to “take proceedings” again “the drive of a motor vehicle”.  Except that if you read this, so called, “Notice” they don’t know who you are or which car you are alleged to have been driving. If you click on the link it takes you to a fake version ...

yourdomain.com information

You have to admire the cheek of this scammer, whose email finished by telling you that the subject line of the email is “in no way misleading”. This is just an attempt to frighten/bully you into handing over $66.  If you read further down they do tell you that they will not be re-registering the ...

Your VAT return and payment of the VAT

I had to laugh when I saw this piece of fiction.  I don’t have nineteen thousand pounds in my bank account, so they could have more than a little trouble debiting it from my “bank’s account”. I suspect the attached file might contain malicious code – certainly my laptop refused to open it. Look at ...

CYNTHIA MORGAN

Because obviously an unaccredited “private lender” who uses a gmail address is going to be able to lend you $500m  (yes, really up too five hundred million dollars). Or maybe not. What do you think? Author: FAST AND TRUSTED LOAN OFFER (IP: 104.238.169.101, 104.238.169.101) Email: xxxxxxxx@gmail.com URL: Comment: Hello, To properly introduce myself, I am ...

Booking Arrangement 7

A few days ago I received this email.  I don’t provide holiday accommodation and the language used made it an obvious scam.  I know how these hotel scams work.  The scammer says they are going to send you more money that you have asked for and asks you to send some of the money to ...

UKPC Parking Charge Reminder Notice Number | 23DR84 1

Scary stuff.  You’ve commited a parking violation and need to pay a fine.  Or do you?  Look carefully – the sender doesn’t know where you were supposed to have parked.  They don’t know who you are.  But magically they have your email address which, of course, you gave to “parking attendant No 77435”.  Or maybe ...
