traditional costume worldwide. We have reached big sales volume
of textile materials in the Europe and now are trying to
penetrate the US market. Quite soon we will open representative
offices or authorized sales centers in the US and therefore we
are currently looking for people who will assist us in

despite the US market is new for us we already have regular
clients also speaks for itself.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR US?
The international money transfer tax for legal entities
(companies) in UK is 25%, whereas for the individual it is only

.That's why we need you! We need agents to receive payment for
our textiles( in money orders,checks or bank wire transfers) and

offices you will be contacted to send payment to(Payment is to
forwarded either by Money Gram or Western Union Money Transfer).

HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN?
10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 USD via
checks or money orders on our behalf. You will cash the money
and keep $700 (10% from $7000) for yourself! At the beginning
your commission will equal 10%, though later it will increase up
to 12%!

Gee, a Yahoo email account and a mobile phone number. Has to be legit.

Oh, hang on :-) Maybe not. From a page on the referred website:

Letter of Employment Scam

We have been made aware that the name Dawson International PLC and our website address are being quoted fraudulently by a company offering employment to establish a distribution network in the U.S. and U.K. This has been reported to the Police and is being investigated by the appropriate authorities and our lawyers.

Dawson International would like to make it clear it has no association whatsoever with what appears to be an illegal attempt to defraud.

Gordon Cumming
Head of Internal Audit
Dawson International PLC


For more information about this type of fraud please refer to the London Metropolitan Police fraud alert.

ETA; I know that you know that this is fraudulent. My mocking tone was directed at the scum sucking scammer. Sorry if that was unclear.

Blues.

I sometimes wish I had the correct type of "creativity" that I could somehow dream up a way to reverse this scam and make these people pay!

Then the common sense voice in my head goes, "What the hell are you thinking man!"

But sometimes...

Gullability a huge plus.

I assume that is why the internet experience should be minimal :-)
