I received this email today. I mean after all, what could be wrong with this? Sounds totally legit to me. I’m betting all I have to do is put up some money as a deposit to show that I am honest and the money will start rolling in.
The truly sad part is not that people pull scams like this, but that other people fall for them.
I am contacting you for a business with my company. The company I work with
is into manufacturing of pharmaceutical materials.
There is a raw material which the company used to send me to buy from
India. Right now I have being promoted to the post of manager.
The company can not send me to India anymore; they will send a more junior
staff. The director has asked for the contact of the supplier of the
pharmaceutical materials in India .
I need a person I will present to the company as the supplier in India .
You will now buy the product from the local dealer and supply to my
company. The profit would be shared between you and I.
Why I don’t want the company to have direct contact of the local dealer is
that, I don’t want the company to know the actual price I was buying the
If you are interested kindly contact me for more details.
