I received this from a person I warned about another scam. The use of a yahoo mail addie and by starting the mail "Top of the day to you" it has my scam radar beeping a warning, and what a Thailand foodstuff company would be doing handling computer equipment I cannot guess.

It's clearly a scam, but this is not a sort I have seen before. Is it just a more elaborate counterfeit cheque scam from this ?

I would want you to contact him as soon as possible with regards to the payments you would be expecting.


A bizarre twist to this is that although the warehouse mentioned is located in Spain, the person this was sent to is in the USA.

Comments please

Cut through the flowery stuff and bullshit, and this is a fake cheque scam all the way.
