Although I find spam annoying, like everyone else, sometimes it intrigues me slightly. Now, granted, most of the time when I get spam, they want to sell me viagra or medical supplies or some other product that, like Nigerian scam endowments, hopefully, I do not need.
I got this one spam, over and over again, the last few days. This was the text:
"A few days ago I unearthed obama is awarding out there green notes
This reason for this is they are striving to frantically help people
Simply just type "gov wemp" into Yahoo then see how to get your cut of
Sincerly, Bill Diershow"
So, in just looking at it, I could not figure out the point of their pitch. Having an extra minute, I went to yahoo and typed in their key word. It ends up that it is this cheesy site that, they want you to believe, leads to people making money in your town. The page I got was a woman named Julie who lives in Miami, Florida, Bellingham. Huh, guess I never have seen that spot in nearly 60 years in this town.
And, if you followed their page to the bottom, this is a real concerned and ethical lot. They do not want to let others scam potential clients of theirs. The message said:
"Sadly, a number of scammers are preying on the American public's growing interest for Grant information. Julie warns:" Be wary of companies that ‘guarantee' you Grant money if you sign up with them. Someone can't just guarantee you Grant money. You have to apply for it first."I ask you, what possible reason would the spammer have for sending this out? There is usually a reason for someone to go to this ridiculous effort, but I cannot figure out what it would be for the life of me."
It is truly a strange world when the spammers are accusing others of being the spammers. Far as I can tell, the hook here is the same -- they want people to send money so they can send out what is probably bogus grant information you can search out for yourself on the internet.
