Unfortunately, Too Many Westerners Are Stupid

We are always surprised that these stupid scams work, but sadly they do.

Here is their latest money scam:

The way it works is they ask for your catalog of products that your company makes or sells.  Then they place and order for these products, that you will ship to Ghana.  They pay for the order with a bogus cashier’s check or other instrument, and you ship the order through their forwarding company – usually shipping to a U.S. or U.K. address.  The you find out it was all a scam when the check “bounces”.  The victim is out a sizeable about of money in product, plus the bank fees, and there is no recourse, because the shipping address claims they are just the forwarder.  It’s simple and perfect, if you fall for it.

 

Here is their solicitation email:
