There are endless spam emails designed to get you to supply the scammer with your name, address, personal information and even financial information.
Recently a lot have appeared to be from China. This may be false of course, as most of these messages use personal email addresses (e.g. Gmail, Hotmail etc.) which anyone from anywhere in the world can get.
An example of the latest such messages – “This is an official request for Professional consultants from USA or UK only to stand as our official representative to run logistics on behalf of Shougang Group.”.
It goes on to say you will be paid $5,000 per month and will keep 10% of all charges to your customers.
Clearly, any legitimate company wanting representatives in foreign countries would go through a careful recruitment process, not send out bulk emails to vast numbers of unknown people.
The point of the message is to get you to supply them with a list of personal information specified at the bottom of the email and it even claims you can do the work while full time employed in your current job.
We really hope no-one responds to this very obvious phishing email or any similar ones.
