zobop Theory: Covid-19 May Have Silenced Phone Scammers From Afar.

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! I hope you’re not reading this from the country of India because this may hurt. A recent thought occurred to me that the reason my phone has been silent by those incessant phone calls by [alleged] “phone scammers” could be the Covid-19 disease has or is killing them off. 🤷🏽‍♂️ I know that sounds horrible but it might be true. So enjoy the silence for now. Who knows when the call center phone scammers might pick up where they left off.

I’ve also noticed I haven’t been getting a lot of “junk mail” either. I guess no one has been working at companies to mail junk to my mailbox. Trust me, I don’t miss it!

Until neXt time…

Possible Gmail Scam

Leave a comment

Hello again zobopians! My next blog post came to quick for my taste. I like to mull things over before I post again. But this junk e-mail got me thinking. How can anyone’s Gmail account be over the limit when the limit is astronomical. Computer storage is cheap and expansive. Scammers think we’re all dumb!
Do you get this e-mailing? (The information in the header below tells you where it’s from.)

Malware ALERT

Man O’ man, are they out to get us & you! Hello fellow zobopians! I don’t know what a link purporting to warn me about something has a name , http://gofu203.riverplatewinsitall.com/591204799128a63777034145091400 ; notice the word “install” in the link name? Did you notice it’s mis-spelled?

Here’s the e-mail below I received from their server :
DISCLAIMER: Don’t go to the above link, it could be dangerous! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
____________________________________________________________________

Dear Reader,

Get ready.

Because a major scandal has broken.

It has to do with what we believe to be a conspiracy between the U.S. government and some of the biggest food producers in America.

This topic of this story is so controversial, Fox News banned a story on it from being aired… and fired the two reporters who covered it.

If you’re happy with the president, do not watch this presentation.

This could be the one that finally brings him down.

[CLICK HERE] for the shocking story.

I’m warning you, though. What you’re about to see might turn your stomach.

Sincerely,

Doug Hill

Scam Alert:Credit Card Fraud

2 Comments

Hello fellow zobopians! I realize we live in a quasi-cashless society, (credit/debit cards). But to live in a world of plastic cards also means to live in fear of cyber security breaches and fraud scams, (telephone & email phishing). Are you scared yet? Read the below picture article I saw from a Chicago newspaper. [Click picture to enlarge.]

SPAM From The UK

2 Comments

Hello fellow zobopians!  Once again I get the craziest spam e-mail.  It ‘almost’ seems legitimate.  But why would anybody from good ol’ jolly England contact me about money?  I don’t know anybody in in the U.K. about somebody who died in 1999.  This ladies & gentlemen is called “phishing” e-mail.  Anyone can send out mass e-mails to see if anyone responds to it.  Duh!  I don’t like people playing games with me!  If you get one of these e-mails, just ignore it. [The e-mail is copied as-is.]

Dear Friend,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics. I would like to introduce myself, I am David Lambert and I work with the staff in the accounts management section of a well-known bank here in the United Kingdom.

One of our accounts is holding a balance of Ўк48,375,000 (Forty Eight million, Three Hundred and Seventy Five Great British Pounds) and has been dormant for some years now.

From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account died on the 16th of February 1999 in an autocrash in Birmingham, here in the UK.

Since then no one has responded in anyway with regards to claiming the funds. As far as we can tell he has no family member that is aware of the existence of either the account or the funds. Information from the National Immigration Office also states that he was single on entry into the UK.

I have confidentially discussed this issue with some of the bank officials and we have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with us. We thus propose to do business with you, standing in as the next-of-kin. We will process these funds from the deceased and release them to you, after due
processes have been followed.

This transaction is totally risk free as the funds is
legitimate and devoid of any illegal/illicit activity. Please think this over and should you be interested, do let me hear from you ASAP.

Regards,

David Lambert
