An email arrived today.
So, apparently I have been lucky enough to secure one of these:
“Free Anti-Biden Gun Gift.”
Because you know, it is absolutely essential that I have my weapon handy while I run, bike and hike. There was an image in the email, but I won’t reproduce that here.
Oh, and by the way this gift was Free! 100%!
Not only is this clearly junk email, but it is also outrightly offensive.
Firstly, I don’t own a weapon.
I don’t live in USA – never have.
I certainly don’t need some lethal firearm to protect me against a democratically elected President of the United States.
Out of some misplaced curiosity, I checked the returning address. Turns out it is a US post office in Puerto Rico!
Which make some wonder: What kind of people actually send this rubbish out into the web? Who would think it is legit? Seriously, how stupid do they think people really are?
Someone has actually wasted time constructing this email with the intention of getting what?
More email addies to sell? A more authentic email address? Access to residential addresses?
Were they in reality, identify thieves securing information?
That, to me, is the real concern.
