It's FOAD Thursday, and Spammers can FOAD Every Day

Click the image to enlarge.
Dear Delivered Ones, today is FOAD Thursday, and it is my most fervent wish that all spammers would FOAD and so would the multi-billion dollar diet industry, which is directly responsible for sparking millions of eating disorders and destroying countless lives. Since I haven't yet found a spell to make that happen, I can at least try and prevent people from losing their money to spammers.
You see the email address that I've circled in red? That is your number one clue that this email is nothing but Spam that has escaped the can and is going on a rampage.
Don't bother unsubscribing from these emails. It doesn't work. Instead, block the email and report it as Spam.
In Gmail, that looks like this:
You go to the three dots in the right-hand corner of your inbox and select the "block" option. Sometimes when you say yes to blocking a sender, it also asks if you want to move the conversation to Spam, which you should do. 
I get irritated with Gmail when a glut of these spam emails get through, but I still like them better than a lot of the other options, so I stay with them.
I also changed my Google password, because the email appeared to have come from me. I have gotten multiple spam emails today alone from accounts with the "" extension. The inevitable "keto diet" bullshit, but also offers for "CBD oil" and encouragement to "refinance your mortgage."
I don't have a mortgage, and the "CBD oil" they're selling is probably made from cooking oil and oregano if you're lucky, or some sort of noxious weed they picked from the side of the road if you aren't.
Change your password immediately if any of them initially appear to have been sent from your email address. Your account has been compromised.
Please take care to protect yourself from these bastards.
