Pardon me, while I whip this out!
Did this come through the fax machine? I remember a while back there was a scam asking basically the same thing. They would fax you a letter stating that they needed to (basically) launder some money and would pay you a fee for the privilage of using your bank account. I think the country mentioned was Venezewala (sp). Anyways, you'd have to give them a bunch of bank info so they could deposit the funds. But instead of depositing the funds, they would withdraw them.
I'd recommending forwarding the message onto your local consumer protection bureau.
This can in on Email with my name on it. Notice it's a yahoo account. Tough to trace.'
Puder, would you like to follow up with him? I bet this email went to 100,000 people tonight.
You freekin' Joisy guys is too damn suspicious!!!! I am sure he saw your honest and forthright company was based in Jersey and headed up by an honest and forthright guy wit' a vowel on the end of his name and he automatically thought about money laundering

Cord is right. DO NOT touch this. It is a scam. As soon as you give them all the banking information, instead of getting money deposited in your account, the clean out what ever you have in the bank.
I have received several of these by fax and forwarded the to the state officials, and they advised that you trash them and DO NOT respond.
Uncle Guido isn't going to like that very much.
I got one of those through the mail 7-8 years ago. It was complete with a South Africa postmark and it had something like fifteen African stamps on it. They have changed the wording a little since then. That letter made my day. LMAO! I'm glad to see these guys have kept pace with the times. They are true businessmen. Think how much they are saving on postage. :eek
I get one of those letters about twice a year. Comes with the South Africa postmark and all. Just received one too
Looks good going through the paper shredder.
Remember.....If it sounds to good to be true. It isn't true
Why are they contacting YOU!!! If it is such a good
deal they would have people standing in line for it.
