I get lots of spam emails a day and I am pretty good at spotting a spammy email from a regular email. I found 10 ones to share with you today.

I get loads of these. They are funny because we all know these are spam, probably the most common spam emails to get. It is a running joke in our house when we receive one to tell each other how rich we are going to be
You’re really missing in my bed right now
Today I signed up for yoga to get my heels to my head – I think you do not mind look here
Did anyone else imagine someone with high heels stuck in their head?
Do I really need to read anymore, I don’t need or want pills to make my imaginary ‘widge’ erect.

Definitely not from PayPal. No PayPal image, hovering over the button and links they are not PayPal websites.

We have put malware on your computer and switched the camera on when you were watching an adult cam site and caught you…
Well, I am not even going there but definitely aimed at a male, hitting some bishop or another 😉 The gist of this email is that they want you to send bitcoins to them.
Congratulations, test and keep Samsung Galaxy S9, iPhoneX etc.
I’ve had so many of these lately all with big brands like Samsung, Apple, Dyson. All the text inside the emails is a clickable link. Dodgy looking when hovering over it too.
You appeared in X amount search this week
Clickable buttons and links inside the email, apparently from LinkedIn
Now this one if it had come to the email address I use for LinkedIn I probably wouldn’t have been suspicious, I don’t generally open them anyway. But as it came to an email address I don’t use I knew it was fake. Hovering over the buttons and links, they are definitely not directed to LinkedIn.

Proceeds to ask personal details. With an AOL.com email address to reply to?!
People may believe this one, however, scrolling down and seeing the information they want from you I would suspect this a lot. This is all the information someone would need to get into your bank, and basically clone you. Don’t reply to it.
I do find these spam emails funny, but some people do take them seriously. I mean if you didn’t know better how would you know if it was a genuine email from PayPal or a parcel company?
Please be vigilant when reading emails. Do not click on any links or download attachments if you do not know where they came from or if they sound even the tiny bit suspicious.
