Highlights on the above email.

I will reply to this email pretending to be positively inclined to do business with this company.

They will respond saying that they will send items for sale from China, Taiwan, or other countries, and they want us, a Canadian or US based company, to handle their financial transactions.

The next stage is that they will say that there have been some payments from some other companies, and they are some checks to be deposited. They will want to send the checks to us for depositing.

The check values will be approximately $20,000 or more.

The “deal” will be for us to keep 20% as a “financial charge’ and send the rest to them by Western Union or other money transfer.

Problem:

The checks that will be sent to us will be forged checks. They are hoping that we would deposit the checks, and then send them the 80% before we realize that the checks are fraudulent.

So, I’m going to reply to this guy (assuming its a “guy”) and lets see how this goes.

Look Back for Updates. 

Whoa…..In approximately 4 hours after replying to the above email, this response was received.

Its time to reply that I AM ELATED TO EARN 10% OF $1,200,000 FOR DOING NOTHING MUCH. 

Notes.
From the above email, certain things are pertinent. |
1.0 The writer stressed “Our company is a legitimate company.” Its the perfect way of identifying a scam. They always stress that they are not scams.
2.0 Okokokok.  I thought they would offer 20%, instead they offered %10.
3.0 From “Financial Coordinator” the job has now turned to”retrieval of overdue payments .”

Its time for me to reply to say I am interested in an overdue payment scheme.

Follow Up and Another Email Response. 

I responded positively, and then within another 4 hours, received another email.

This time I have been given the pleasure of being approved to be their financial representative in my region.
The full email is given below.

Notes On the Above FAKE EMAIL

1.0 The Phone # provided works, but it for a residential home and its definitely not any Perkins Investment Group. The guy who answered the phone had no idea what I was talking about. (I initially thought he was  a part of the scam and would pretend to owe money).  He has never heard of Perkins Investment Group.

The website www.perkinsinvestment.com has been banned. The image below is has been placed by the ISP.

 FAKE ADDRESS.

As expected, the address shown on the Whois Database is a fake. There is no 5 Liroy Way in Casper, Wyoming 82604, United States.

Fake Phone #. The Phone # on the website 1.8264598783 “has been disconnected or no longer in service”

Perkins Investment Group

The real Perkins Investment Group is a multi national real estate, power and investment company with branches in Canada, Germany, Japan, China and Thailand.

The senders of this email is pretending to be owed money from Perkins Investment Group.

MY BIG FAT GUESS. 

The first forged check will appear to be from Perkins Investment Group. Lets see how this goes.

 Update. My “Check” Arrives!!!

An Xpresspost mail was sent to us from Unselect Inc with an address from Quebec City, Canada. This was a change. The last one pretended to be from the US.  Obviously, this was posted from Quebec.

Fake Xpresspost Letter for Tractor Parts

 

In this letter, were two items. One was a letter addressed to us pretending to be from Allen Perkins, and the forged check.

Fake Letter for Tractor Parts

Also, here comes the prize. The Forged Check.

Forged Check for Tractor Parts

 

Wow. Am I $18000 rich? Haha (10% commission)

Follow Ups on this Forged Tractor Parts checks.

The phone # that was provided for Allen Perkins 514-299-4142 is a working phone #. This is the person in Canada from Quebec who is organishing the scam. This person called me several times to confim that the check was received and wanted to know when the check will be clearred.

He is obviously not alone. I also received a phone call from Nigeria, speaking with a Nigerian accent and pretending to be Chung Liang.

This scam is organised two ways with a contact in Canada and the infamous Nigerian scammers.
