Check out this e-mailI just received. BTW, I'm not looking for a job either. Do people really fall for this kind of BS?


ACTEXO TEXTILE
&
FABRICS LIMITED
RM 604 EAST OCEAN CENTRE
26 GRANVILLE ROAD
TSIM SHA TSUI EAST,KLN
HONG KONG
www.actexotextile.com

My name is KENNETH CLARK, Executive Marketing officer for ACTEXO
TEXTILES
AND FABRICS LTD. I saw your advert on the web for employment and will
be so
glad to have you as our agent if you're still looking for job. Do check
out
our web site (www.actexotextile.com) for more details.

We've been selling our products for the past few years and we're lately
facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling our products to
Americans cos they are always offering to pay with a US MONEY
ORDER/CHECK,
which is difficult for us to cash here. We are looking for a
representative
in the states who will be working for us as a partime worker and we'll
be
willing to pay 10% for every transaction, which wouldnt affect your
present
state of work.

We need someone who would be helping in receiving payments from our
clients
in the States. An agent who is responsible and reliable that will be
handling the payment aspect. The payment will be addressed and sent to
you
and all you need do is to get it cashed, deduct your percentage and
wire the
balance back to any of our accountants/lawyers in our regional
warehouses.
The problem we have is getting someone that is really capable and
trustworthy as though we surely have our way of getting anyone that
tried to
get away with our money. The FBI will surely be interested and get
involved.

This offer is not going to cost you any amount cos all you need to do
is to
receive payments which will be sent to you via delivery courier from
our
clients, which would come in form of a money order/check get it cashed
and
send the cash to our accountants/lawyers via MONEYGRAM MONEY TRANSFER,
and
required charges for all transfer should be deducted from the money. If
you're interested, kindly get back to me ASAP via this
[email protected] so that i can feed you with more
informations about the jobs.

Looking forward to your response.
Yours Faithfully
Kenneth Clark

Actexo & Fabrics LTD.

There was a show about the Nigerians a couple years back. Some Brit thought he'd con the con men, and wound up getting killed.

The key is you gotta be a better con-man which means being untraceable once the con is complete.

From the scam-mails I've received, there seem to be two different types.

One wanted to buy the F150 I posted in FSB for a friend. Some party from the UK wanted to buy it for whatever price I would name. All I had to do was meet them in New York, or some other suitable port...with the truck! Well, there's a big market for innocent looking American trucks in the Middle East.

The other is an offer to "hide" somebody's really big profit or inheritance in an American bank. All that's needed is bank account number, personal info, and usually about $10k "earnest deposit". Once, a sad nephew of an African chief said his uncle had no relatives to leave his ill-gotten money to! :rofl:

You might be able to out-con the first, but not the second.
