New Scam

Got this email tonight. Looks like a variation of the Nigerian scam, but is one I haven't seen before. Thought I'd pass it along to the forum in case anyone is interested in taking Mark up on his job offer. If you do, please let me know how it works out...


From: "Mark Harrison" <harrison.mark@hotmail.com>
Subject: Urgent Job Offer
Date: Wed, 09 Nov 2005 03:28:22 +0000

pleasant day,

I have a job offer u might be intersested in My name is Harrison Mark
i am 58 of age and i work for Brave Store Inc Ltd. We extract raw
materials from Africa and United kingdom to produce textile and fabrics
which we supply to our clients in the north american geographical region (united
states) and Europe for cloth making.

we are looking for a representative in america and Europe to
work for us as a partime worker and we are willing to pay $600 dollas for every
transaction,which wouldnt affect ur present state of work. First of all i
will like to know your Name/Age/Sex/Location and what u do for a
living presently Our main factory is located in United Kingdom and
Africa.

where we extract the raw materials needed for the manufacturing
of fabrics,we are looking for a representative in the states, someone who
would help us recieve payments from our customers in the states. i mean
someone that is responsible and reliable.Though we are working on setting up a
branch in the states,but for now we need a representative in the united state
who will be handling that aspect,We are willing to pay $600 per every
payment u recieve and you can still keep ur regular job while you work for us.

All you have to do is help us recieve payments from our customers in the
states. These payments are in cashiers checks or money orders
and wire transaction and they would come to you in your name, so all you
need do is cash it, deduct your payment and wire the rest to us via western
union.But sometimes the fbi gets involved incase someone trys to run with
our money,

i hope that is okay If you are interested i would send you an
employment letter which you are to sign and send back to me as soon as
possible and i would need you to give me your full name ,home address e-mail
address and your phone number for me to get in contact with you. It wouldnt
cost u any amount,u are to receive payments which will be sent to u by
fedex or usps from our business patners, which would come in a cashiers cheque
or money order or wire trasaction then u are to cash it and send the cash
to us via western union money transfer all western union charges will be
deducted fromthe money.

as soon as you have the money sent you will have to provide us
with the Payment information for pickup. I Look forward to your quick
reply.

Regards.

I think the uniform may have up and down lines with a number on the back.

No . . . it really works - just forward any cash you send Mark through me . . . I'll make sure every thing is on the up and up, and I'll send you an ipod too.
