Email Scam Content Sells Fictional Truths
With the advancements of internet communication, an increase in email scam is inevitable! I guess it comes with the territory of exploring all the internet has to offer. But too many “surfers” end up getting taken for a financial ride.
Internet victims simply find no effective recourse for recovery. The best way to keep yourself and those whom you care about clear of email scam rip-offs starts by being aware of the tall tale signs that openly present themselves within the content of the typical email message itself.
Email scam? Do you get them? Have you read these lines before? They start out with claims like:
- “Hey dude, all this time the power to make $5,876.18 every day is as easy as 1..2..3…”
- “Watch this and write your own paycheck!”
- “Hey, I hope you’re alone now because this may down-right piss you off! I just think you deserve to know the truth…. that’s all. Take care” (this one proceeds the moment right before you end up going down as the latest sucker).
Oh… here’s common email scam content:
“Step 1: Open this email AFTER WEDNESDAY. Step 2: Click on this secure and private invitation link to access this system that makes me over $9,000 a day Step 3: Don’t share the download link and DELETE this email. This is private invitation only. I’ve got a GAME-CHANGER to show you today. Here’s the deal: – You don’t need a Website – You don’t need Facebook or Twitter – No blog or no squeeze page… – No domain names, hosting, SEO… – No technical skills – No experience – BEGINNERS ARE PREFERRED”
And then, of course, there’s always the “Last and Final Notice” email scam line:
- “– Last and Final Notice for ([email protected]) –You were sent this via FB Facebook) and you haven’t watched it and it’s URGENT. I need to know if you want the access or if I should give it to someone else right away. Please hurry HERE.com…as you only have 8 hours to decide. PS This is your last chance. Grab it NOW:../”
Here’s another great email scam lead-on! This is a real email scam I received recently:
- “Hey! Our computer has randomly selected 45 people to test this new system that has personally made me over $108,432.44 in commissions… IN JUST ONE WEEK! If you’ve never made a penny online before, and you want to be able to create a profit pulling machine in just 7 clicks of your mouse >>Start Clicking Now<< – -You don’t need an existing website – You don’t need any technical experience – You don’t need to be a sales person – You don’t need any money to get started – You don’t need to learn about SEO, Twitter, link-building, CPA, PPV or any of that – You don’t need to spend hours of your time each day to make any money In fact, beginners will get preference NOTE: only 45 beta-testers are required and the closing date is fast approaching! “
O.K., so let’s get this straight! This “new system” supposedly made this email scam sender over $108,000 in just one week! So…. why is he or she sending this little secret out in the first place? I mean, if it’s so good, why the need to spam email accounts? Well, if you haven’t figured it out yet, let me spell it out for you: because it DOESN’T REALLY WORK! After all, any system that was helping me rake in over $15,000 each day, why work at getting others to buy into it?
The answer is simple. Because this email scam is what you’re buying! If the email scam sender is making any money at all, it happens when you become the next sucker for making that small (maybe insignificant amount) purchase for that money-making program that’s about as effective as the next scam email artist can make it and even that takes work!
The real story behind the purpose of this type of email scam is to get you to give them your email so others, just like them, can hit you again with the latest scam. Since you were suckered into at least one of these deals, you’ll soon find plenty more to follow. Over and over again!
Valid, legitimate home-based business opportunities, whether it’s on the internet or selling crafts from home, can be learned in your spare time. Knowledge is power. To get the power over your situation, knowledge as to how to go about it must be part of the solution.
If you’re serious about creating a legitimate home-based income, there are several valid resources to pull from without resorting to wasting your time and money replying to an email scam. Online courses like learning how to start a pet sitting business, becoming a grant writing consultant, creating a gift basket or arts and crafts business, or simply learning the ins and outs of starting and operating your own home-based business in general.
If you’re looking for publication resources to help kick-start an income creating idea, there is plenty to be found on the web through simply searching by topic of interest.
A few last tips:
- Don’t be fooled by the email that flashes fake cash, fake airplanes, or fake mansions boasted by fake actors that claim fake riches gained by promoting fake products! Don’t be that guy (or gal)!
- Don’t necessarily trust that online review you came up with on a search engine that claims that this or that is a “trusted” source. Whatever it is they may be scamming while screaming “scam” on their competition may simply be a cover at getting you to follow through with that impulsive purchase you almost made before doing the search in the first place. Of course, if you don’t quite buy that one, they’ll offer a link to “other” options that are also “trusted”… by them.
