We were warned a month or so ago by our west coast brethren about a scam where someone places a significant order and then asks the salesperson to make a deposit with an offshore shipping agent.
We received a minor inquiry yesterday for polycarb that evolved into something very worthwhile. They’re good – very good… so beware.
The deal was worth about $10k. It was explained that due to some international trade treaty mumbo jumo pact thingee the transcaction had to originate from North America. All we had to do was arrange for the shipping to Ghana by depositing a couple of thousand with an offshore shipping agent and THEN they’d give us their credit card number.
I wonder if they’re paid on commission…
