I have a fairly large number of websites, with most of them having their own email address.
This means I get a lot of scam emails.
Once you've seen a few, they become pretty obvious and it takes a fraction of a second to just delete them.
They follow a handful of patterns.
I've reproduced a list of email scams just from the past week or so here, so that you can recognize them easily.
Who they're (supposedly) from is interesting too. For example, I get a lot of sex scam emails from "Stormy Daniels". It would be laughable if so many people didn't fall for them!
Affiliate marketing is a simple but powerful idea.
There are thousands of companies all over the world that need help marketing their products online. And they will pay you substantial commissions to help them do that.
Some will transfer your earnings directly to your bank account, either directly if you're domestic or by wire transfer if you're in another country and some will pay straight into your PayPal account. No matter what, the payments side is totally in place. Affiliate marketing has been around for long enough to be mature in this area.
I can teach you how to become an internet marketing affiliate.
But is it easy?
Lately, I've been swamped by a new type of scammer email.
I'll call them that whether the product they are promoting is legitimate or not.
Because the method of promotion is a scam. It tries to draw you in by stating a lie.
That you have purchased something that you haven't, or that a refund is waiting for you, or that you've been rejected by or accepted into something you've never heard of.
Here are some examples. You may recognize them.
I've reported this scam before, but it keeps reappearing in new clothing.
This is the one I got today:
Yes, folks, that was the actual subject matter of the email. Where does "chopped" come from? Is it a literal translation from a foreign language? Who knows.
Hi! As you may have noticed, I sent you an email from your account. This means that I have full access to your devices and accounts. I've been watching you for a few months now. The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited. If you are not familiar with this, I will explain. Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device. This means that I can see
I've been an enthusiastic user of Thrive Themes and Plugins for over two years and wouldn't be without them.
They are the first, and usually the only set of business themes and plugins I install on a new WordPress site.
The 10 WordPress business website themes that you have access to as soon as you install Thrive are the best conversion optimized WordPress themes available.
This article will take a quick look at each of them.
Broadly speaking, you have 3 alternatives when choosing an editor for your WordPress site.
They are the WordPress Classic Editor, the WordPress block (Gutenberg) editor or a 3rd party drag and drop editor such as my recommended solution, Thrive Architect from Thrive Themes and Plugins. But let's look at each of these WordPress editor software solutions in turn.
A huge number of business websites use WordPress as their platform. And for good reason.
It's stable, it's reliable and has a relatively short learning curve.
But its strength lies in the themes and plugins that you can add.
A top WordPress business theme can really make your website stand out. And if it's a conversion optimized theme, then your major challenge, that of attracting visitors has been given an early boost.
I got this email today:
It was headed Build&Own Electricity <firstname.lastname@example.org>
and it said
Rumours say Trump called a secret emergency meeting at
the White House after learning about this weirdo device.
Electric companies have already gathered an army of lawyers
to take it down.
I'm not sure if you aware or not... but the information on
this website I'm about to share with you today
will change American lives forever:

Never again pay a single cent to the big energy moguls
with this simple, yet efficient "gizmo"... and be among the
select 2% of the population that has already stepped
into the new free energy era.

P.S. I really recommend you stop what you're doing right now
and watch this short presentation. I don't know how much
longer they can leave it up."
Are you sick of fighting all the other affiliate marketers for low-value scraps?
What if I told you you could create your own online training course and have a stream of people ready to buy it for $200?
People who'll thank you for the information you've provided and praise you for your professional presentation.
Thrive Apprentice is the platform you'll use to create and present your high quality online course, but that's only part of the formula.
The complete formula takes the form M + CC + M, where CC stands for Course Creation and the two M's each stand for Marketing. Marketing before you launch, so that you get a flood of buyers on launch and Marketing after the launch, so that you continue to sell and profit day after day.
I am an affiliate for Thrive Themes as well as an enthusiastic user. This means that if you purchase through my link, I get a small commission. This makes no difference to the cost to you, but helps me to maintain this website.
I have a large number of domain names registered, and I receive an email like this one almost every day.
It's very official looking and the subject line is domainname.com Final Notice (where domainname.com is one of my actual domain names, of course). But it's a domain listings scam.
Here's what the start of it looks like.
