Hope you’re all doing well, all things considered.
I don’t know about you guys, but since the beginning of lockdown I’ve been inundated with spam (unsolicited sales emails) from Aussie companies. They’re telling me all sorts of nonsense about doing business during COVID-19, while trying to convince me to part with my cash.
I understand times are tough and that everyone has to make a living despite all odds. But spamming people with clickbaity, unhelpful subject lines is not only annoying, it’s unlawful.
I was going to post exactly the same thing with scams. Scams everywhere from a sudden influx of those scam letters telling me to use them to renew my business name registrations, to those ‘puppies for sale’ scams on Facebook, getting away with it because now they have an excuse for not letting a buyer come to se the puppy.
I really hope people are experienced enough with these scams to ignore them, but I am afraid that many people will still get caught.
