I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

Weight Loss SPAM

I do not consider myself an over weight guy, and I don’t know how I got on the list for all this diet pill SPAM (maybe penis enlarger but that is a different story, ha). But seriously everyday I get e-mails promises great weight loss results I wouldn’t even need if they really did work. I could probably gain ten pounds rather than lose them, so why am I getting all these e-mails.

No I am not putting those weird weight loss chemicals in my drinks let alone my body. No I would not like a membership to a gym. And no I do not want a bunch of frozen low calorie TV dinners, deserts, and snacks. That crap can all go back to the people who sent it to me. They’re fat sacks that are just trying to make themselves feel better by conning others. I have had enough. Go sell your fat farm products to some other schmuck.

Slim chews? Pft, yeah right.

Men’s Rings – Lookout For Jewelry Scams

“Everyone is growing up so fast!” My mother says almost sobbing when I told her about yet another wedding I have to attend next month.

All my friends seem to be getting their shit together and settling down. As more and more of my friends announce their wedding dates I get having more and more chats about wedding jewelry. All the ladies seem to know exactly what they want and where to find it but the men on the other hand seem to be very much in the dark.

After talking my friend Ali I am a little weary about picking out jewelry on my own especially online. She is  huge online shopper just like me and when she started shopping for her husbands wedding band she start online by force of habit and convenience. She said when looking for mens rings the key is to do your research online first. She told me that after she started looking around she started getting many SPAM e-mail offering very attractive deals but that they were all scams.

One website I found really helpful was Titanium-Jewelry.com and Belloria.com Blog

Be safe shoppers!

Jewelry Avoid Scams – Don’t Buy Online

In my yahoo inbox I ran into a bunch of spam and scams. I use that email to sign up for things online or order from places I know I will get spam from. A few years back I sent flowers to my girlfriend using a online delivery service. Ever since I’ve been getting emails by the dozens every week from them offering deals on flowers, jewelry or chocolates.

Chocolates and flowers are one thing but I don’t think I feel comfortable buying jewelry online. Not only can I not see the product or try it on, I have no guarantee that the material used is genuine. I feel much better buying my jewelry in the store even if it’s a little more expensive I know I got what I wanted. Simone and Son would be my first choice in jewelry shopping because they offer great deals on custom designed jewelry.

Yahoo Chat is Full of Spam

I stopped using my Yahoo e-mail in high school but held on to the address so I had a valid e-mail to sign up for sketchy looking things on the inter web. Largibe@yahoo.com has been my e-mail since before 2000. Why largibe? It’s a scramble of my middle name: Gabriel. Simple enough right, and now you know a bit more about me :)

I moved to G-mail and have never been happier. What drove me from Yahoo in the first place? You mean other than Google’s obvious online dominance and the fact that it runs my smart phone (I like poking peoples faces to call, not phone numbers)?

Again, it’s simple: I hate that the Yahoo chat pops all over while I’m trying to check my mail. This wouldn’t be such an issue if it were actually IMs from friends or real people looking to chat. Every damn time its “make money online” or “check out my live show” or “win a free Ipad today!” I don’t have time for this, and I don’t have time for Yahoo mail anymore. No wonder my inbox is +2000!

 

Job Search Full of SPAM

I just graduated college and I’m now hard on the job search. It’s weird to think how different the job search game is now compared to even just five years ago – the last time I had a job interview. Its all done online now. You want a job Target? Cub Foods? Even McDonalds?! Don’t bother going in for an application – “you gotta apply online.”

I started out small and looked at my schools job search data base and found a few interesting positions. The cool thing about job search sites is there pretty much just a search engine; click, type, boom, a whole list of jobs. Also you can just upload your resume once and then it’s always just one click away from being sent. I applied for like 30 jobs in an hour.

Then I moved on to Monster and although it does seem to have a much deeper job pool it also has its fair share of spamy repetitive posts for “stay at home” jobs doing surveys and what have you. What a waste of time; the same kind of thing that ends up in my inbox and straight in the trash.

Getting Out of Debt

Posted by Tyler | Posted in Financial Scams! | Posted on 04-08-2011

Apparently, this magical email is going to get me out of any existing debt I may have. And somehow, it isn’t a scam even though it went directly to my SPAM inbox and has no credible source that it’s coming from. In fact, upon looking at the domain, I’ve never even heard of it, not that I would know probably even if they were credible, seeing as how I’m not in debt. That being said, I don’t really think I need this email whatsoever. Nevertheless, it’s entertainment I suppose.

This is how you get out of debt… once and for all.

$800 Deposit

Of course I will. The latest e-mail wants me to visit some links to confirm some details so that they can deposit $800 into my account. Actually, I think that’s what it said. Here’s the message:

.<==>”We..Need___Your__

Confirmation___for..”8oo.00″..deposit.”]..<==>.
It’s a little strange, and I have no idea why I would do it, but I guess it was worth the try on their end.

Olive Garden for Free?

Aww, too bad these people “are not affiliated with the brands above.” And as always, there are a set of requirements that make me uneasy on just how free this Olive Garden dinner will be.

Maybe I’ll just make some cheeseburgers or spaghetti and break out a bottle of wine and pretend.

Penny Bids — iPad = $9.99

Posted by Tyler | Posted in Financial Scams! | Posted on 24-03-2011

First of all, why in the world would I ever want an original iPad after the release of the iPad 2? I mean, the new generation are twice as fast, not to mention many other upgrades.

Second, I absolutely hate penny bids. For those of you that don’t understand how they work, here’s how. Basically, you buy bids for a penny each and have so many bids to use. Then, everyone bids on a product that could basically start wherever the auction company wants it to. Now, say you get an object to $10 and buy it. Great, a great deal, right?

Even if you lose the bid, you still pay. So if 10 people paid roughly $10 each, they make $100. You may have saved $40, but they made that right back and more. Basically, it’s a simple math trick that makes people feel like they’re getting a product for cheap and the auction company is still making tons of cash.
