A) The spammers think I’m getting old OR
B) The spammers are stupid
While the reality may be closer to Option A, I prefer to believe in Option B. Therefore, I can merrily go about my day safe in the belief that even twenty-somethings are getting the same offers to obtain their life insurance, health insurance, and car insurance from complete strangers whose only qualification is that they somehow obtained my email address from a mailing list.
Today’s first insurance email was for “Fidelity Life and eCoverage.” A quick visual inspection shows this one is perfect—until you scroll down to the bottom of the email. Oops. That’s where we find a good deal of gibberish: “friends, rip for she her Telegraph. she 20 not Earlier topless the she every well. is,” a underweight?’Sofia’s this is the Kerr gratitude. . .”
Who, exactly, is “Fidelity Life and eCoverage?” In my case, it’s Mike Prescott out of San Diego who has a server in Bucharest. In reality, it’s a nonexistent company. This phishing site’s offer for “$250k of life insurance as low as $15 per month” stinks more than a load of three-day-old fish. Unlike the photo on this post, there’s no friendly person waiting to help you. It’s more like, waiting to take you. Don’t fall for this email scam and remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.[tweetthis]Get the scoop on the #fidelity email scam[/tweetthis]
