Why is WorldBank.Org Spamming Users to join FingerHut?


The World Bank Group has set two goals for the world to achieve by 2030:

  • End extreme poverty by decreasing the percentage of people living on less than $1.90 a day to no more than 3%
  • Promote shared prosperity by fostering the income growth of the bottom 40% for every country

The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. We are not a bank in the ordinary sense but a unique partnership to reduce poverty and support development.

Oh and they forgot their last point… to get people to sign up for FingerHut.

    Tiffany, I just read an email that had that same paragraph at the bottom of the message. I was wondering if you know anything else about this?

      I don’t know why, I never heard of either of these people and their blasting from @gmail.com@paypal.com too. This is very annoying and filled up my inbox all the way. Very mad.

    I got one offering me a 50$ sams club gift card. It had the same paragraph at the bottom. This site was the one and only result when I searched for Ruchestty Partner in google.
