Weird SPAM/SCAM emails.

I keep getting SPAM emails from someone who sounds like a lunatic. Her name, I think is Marjorie Taylor Greene. My mom's name, and my aunt's name is Marjorie, And one one my uncles' last names was Green (no "e"). Could some bot have gathered this information and created a "human" to steal money from me? Here is what I received yesterday and today in my SPAM folder. Fellow Patriot, Joe Biden and his Democrats have wasted no time in asserting more and more control over the American people. Has he even read the Constitution? They want to defund the police, so they can control who is protected (them) and who is not protecting you. They want to cancel gender, so they can even decide who can share a restroom with your daughter and be on a sports team. Now, they want to issue immunity passports, so they can decide when you can get on a plane, go to work, even leave your home. This sounds a lot like the Mark of the Beast as described in Revelations 13:18, and I will never allow this to happen while I am still drawing breath. I work in mental health, and do wonder if such a scam could work. Is there really such a critter out there? Have you gotten emails like this?

Fear is a great motivator. I got one from a friend that said Kamela Harris wants to destroy the VA. When I fact checked it, turns out the “story” was just that: quoting a satire piece from an “Onion”-like humor site. But the problem is that people will believe it.

I have a friend who has severe dyslexia and other challenges. Another friend and I occasionally send him satire pieces from the Onion. He doesn't get them. Have you heard of Iowa Hawk? It's right wing satirical site, and it CAN be funny. I'm not sure if he'd get their satire either. As a "lefty in recovery" I love to poke fun at the Left. But it has to be done right. There's a new political "comedy" show on FOX, but it's REALLY BAD, so far. Not funny at all. I'll attach a link. If I can find it.

@TheHorse I'm assuming it probably isn't, but still, they used her as the example. We know she is crazy, but if someone who doesn't know who she is looks her up, they will at least find out that she is a political "somebody" and maybe that's all they need to see to believe .

I hoover over the email and look at the email name. If I don't recognize or if even seems a bit fishy (phishy), I delete without opening. I receive political, bank and even Amazon order emails that are not legit. Some have a special tracking to see if their email gets opened and they see it's a real email acct and blast with spam. Some buy from legit companies. It's annoying so I read real companies fine print about sharing.

There are some strange things going on out there, I got a message on my Textnow account in a voice mail that said if I don't get in touch with them then they will consider I want my latest Amazon order and take around a thousand dollars from my account, Problem with this nonsense is that I have not ordered anything from Amazon for 3 months so I am sure it was some silly scam but I have not idea why they would want to do this
Years ago I found mails stating that if you sent a dollar or so with your name somewhere, you´d get very rich. There was even the picture of a mansion and a giant car. I wondered, why would anyone share this for a dollar if they could get rich otherwise? Scams come in all sorts of ways. I hope that nobody even remotely related to me falls for them.
Yes they can work on people and they do unfortunately. Particularly on those people that have nothing better to do than be outraged by well anything I mean yes how dare they issue immunity passports because we failed to stop the spread of covid on a global scale.
