Won’t this email scam die?

December 8, 2006

I thought the “Nigerian Bank Scam” had been done to death, when what should appear in my in basket but yet another spin on the same old ploy.   Now, don’t get me wrong, it was a welcome departure from all the offers for products to regrow my hair or improve my  masculinity in some form or fashion.    I’m mostly surprised that they didn’t ask for Social Security number, driver license and a major Credit Card and Exp date just to make sure the applicant was qualified for such an important “opportunity”.

 Anyway, I thought I’d share this one:

Dear Sir/Madam!

We are a small and relatively new Software Development and Outsourcing Company specializing in enterprise application development, system integration, corporate networks and other software solutions for business and finance. The company based in Ukraine. We’ve earned ourselves a reputation of a reliable and trustworthy partner working successfully with a number of West European and North American companies and providing them with reliable software development services in financial, telecom and media sectors. Unfortunately we are currently facing some difficulties with receiving payments for our services. It usually takes us 10-30 days to receive a payment from your country and such delays are harmful to our business. We do not have so much time to accept every wire transfer and we can’t accept cashier?s checks or money orders as well.

That’s why we are currently looking for partners in your country to help us accept and process these payments faster. If you are looking for a chance to make an additional profit you can become our representative in your country. As our representative you will receive 8% of every deal we conduct. Your job will be accepting funds in the form of wire transfers and check payments and forwarding them to us. It is not a full-time job, but rather a very convenient and fast way to receive additional income. We also consider opening an office in your country in the nearest future and you will then have certain privileges should you decide to apply for a full-time job. This is an entry level opportunity in the field of financial services. Our financial professionals work with clients to help them achieve their many financial goals such as saving on taxes.We therefore solicit your assistance in remitting this money and facilitating transactions.
