Topic: A twist on an old phishing technique....
I got this today, and thought it was quite funny. I still can bring myself to believe that anyone ever fell for any of these things.
Hello Rod Person. My name is Duc Lai and I work for a company called Funders Online I found your resume on monster.com because we are searching for reliable professionals across the United States who are interested in a potentially lucrative partnership with an international firm. Funders Online is a leading investition company in Latvia and we are currently expanding our operations in the United States. But because of various banking and legal restrictions, we are unable to open commercial bank accounts in every state. As such, Funders Online is recruiting partners to conduct simple banking transactions on our behalf. The process is simple. If you were interested in becoming a US partner of Funders Online, you would sign an agreement that would make you an official financial representative of our company, able to accept invoice payments on our behalf. Instead of asking our American clients to conduct complicated international payment transactions (which are especially complex for Finland companies), we have them work with our partners to submit payments. You would then forward the payments to us, a simple transaction for an individual. Funders Online pays its partners a 10% commission on every transaction. In addition, we will take care of any incremental tax liability you incur. Depending on which state you are in, and of course on how good business is, your monthly commissions could be as high as $14,000 per month. If you are interested in working with us, or if you want more information, you can contact me directly at my personal email address. I'll need your full name and mailing address so I can send you the contract and other paperwork necessary to get started. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Duc Lai
