The following Skype conversation just took place. I can't quite figure out what the scam is but it stank from the start.

The website www.stmei.com looks authentic but the telephone numbers on it are mobiles, and the Ghanaian telephone number is known to be associated with 419 fraud.

Xxxx is me, of course!

The guy's Skype ID is john.batts and he claims to be from Sarawak, Malaysia. (Maybe he bats both ways!)

The names of some of the people on the website appear to have been lifted from a Swiss company called Ismatec.

If this is a scam it's pretty slick and sophisticated. Any comments?

My guess would be that the 'company' would send you some checks to cover the purchase of the raw materials from the 'engineer' in Ghana. Fake cheques of course, cashed by you and forwarded no doubt by western union to the guyman in Ghana.

A little more investigation shows me that the information on the website - which of course looked too professional to have been the scammers' work, was lifted, complete with names and photos, from various companies including Shell and a company in CH called Ismatec. I have contacted the companies concerned and both plan to take action.
