I just received a check in the amount of $385,000 on a Citibank "Official Check." The emails that I have received fit this scam exactly. Here is the most pertinent info:
Name of Asia company: Matila Manufacturing Pte Ltd
Contact name: Patrick Chan
Debtor American Company: Eagle Power Equipment, Attn: Paul Gettel
, 2211 N Dupont Hwy., New Castle, DE 19720, tel: 1-302-380-3705
I called the number and told "Paul Gettel" to go F*$@% himself. The real Eagle Power Equipment has never heard of a Matila Manufacturing, although the website looks very real.
Also, the check was mailed to me from Paul Owen, 3310 South Service Road, Burlington, Ontario, Canada, L7N3M6, 289-888-2348
Any thoughts on what to do with the Check (other than tear it up)?
