Sincerely,

yep, there is no job deal in here. the deal is - that i should send them the money and my personal data :laugh-s: i've also red my headers, while the company (that they are claiming to be) is in the UK, the ip address shows an irish village.i was thinking to contact the company and ask is there a person named andrea, but then i thought, maybe the whole company is involved in money laundering, or they simply might ignore me.
so what do you think? is there some possibility to catch this scammer only using headers information? should i call the company? i stopped responding, but i thought maybe to send them the local police office address and the fake phone number like a tarot or something ;) but maybe they'll get angry with me, and do something worse :cry: :evil:
p.s. if there are some misspelled words, don't worry i am not a scam ;) :D
btw, now i've just noticed that piramal health care post, contains the same concept (software, speed of data etc. 'words' that should be paid for :lol: )
