Apologies if this has already been posted (I couldn't find anything from a quick search), but I received this obviously-dodgy spam email today and wondered if anyone else had had it? When you hit reply the return address is the [email protected] address rather than [email protected]

I wonder where they got my email address from, and how they knew I was interested in Alfas.....

Cheers

Paul

Website: Alfa Romeo: a Brand at the cutting edge of design and technology

My name is George Huffman and I am in-charge of the Alfa Romeo Motor's Human Resource department. Alfa Romeo is an Italian Motor Manufacturer and we have several customers in United States of America whom use our cars and presently, most of them require parts that can only be imported directly from Italy and we are unable to receive payments directly from USA due to our Italian Policies.

We receive series of e-mails requesting for parts from our car users, however we are unable to process their request because we are not able to receive US Checks / Money Orders. If we request them to send a Western Union Money Transfer, they will be going against the better business bureau rules because Western Union Money Transfer is based on Cash transactions and costs almost 8% of the amount sent for their sending fee's.

We require you to become our Accounts Receivable agent whom shall assist us towards receiving payments from our customers for required parts, once you receive their check payment, you shall be required to deposit the check and then deduct 10% of each payment received by you as your earning. You will be required to forward the remaining 90% to our Regional Manufacturing Processor via Western Union Money Transfer, if you are interested in this offer, kindly fill the form below:
