Hello to everybody.

I've just received (on my business e-mail) an offer of new job. Thunderbird said it was spam (but I had taught him that...), now I think maybe it is a scam. As I for the first am new and for the second don't have so much time, perhaps someone could check it?
My doubt came from the fact, that e-mail was sent from a Spanish e-mail account in the name of Ukhrainian company (with address of director at gmail...) and the origin is, as far as I know, Ankara, Turkey.
I wonder if I should apply (no, I don't need a new job) and probably pay some money for preparing the necessary documents...
Here is the e-mail:
Quote:
I represent a company seeking for part-time financial contractors. I will describe the offer in a few words below:

Money turnover of our company already reached the certain heights
and we are in search of regional managers, who are willing to manage

SCAM!

Probably typical money laundering/fake check.

As far as the package request--scammers have been known to use stolen credit card numbers to buy expensive electronics, etc., ship them to a third party (many times this is the unpaid victim of a romance scam), and have the third party forward the packages. This makes the scammer more untraceable, and depending on where the scammer is located, may be necessary to get the merchandise, as some companies have wised up and refuse to ship packages to known scammer-infested areas.

Thank you, Lobo.
I have to say, regretfully, I neglected to make even basic research in Internet. From what I saw at phishbucket, softline has more to do with money laundering than with wangling money from people. What means also, it is more dangerous to respond and it's more likely to be under eventual investigation.
For I have already checked that company (just found web site... : http://www.softline.kiev.ua/control/en/index ) I have now one more impression: the criminals use the real (and innocent) company name to make some fraud.
