PSA: This One Goes Out to My Fellow Fit-Biz Friends

A couple days ago, I received the following email from “Dennis” ( – it’s not the first time I’ve seen a variation of this spam message, either:

If you have a fitness-themed website/blog and haven’t received a message like this yet, it’s only a matter of time until they find you.  To make the email seem even more legit, they may mention your specific city or offer to send you a check in advance if you send ’em your mailing address.

The names and story may change, but in a nutshell, it’s all BOGUS.

So what kind of scam/spam “too good to be true” emails have you received?
