REST Pro - The End


This is the sequence of e-mails that I exchanged with REST Pro. I did not get a reply to the last one.

Why should I not worry if you're working worldwide. Surely, that could mean that you are working somewhere that is legally very different to the UK.

I've just checked your web site and I find the same Heall Road address. So did the people who wrote your web site, make the same mistake.

XXXX (I used a ficticious name here.)

I'll leave everyone to draw their own conclusions.

Just received one: Definitely 100% fraud, but interesting sometimes to go through some of the initial stages and see the lies, mistakes and contradictions flow...

First thing to note on these sorts of emails is that they always tend to be from a managing director/senior manager but their English and grammar is appalling.

Secondly an international company using a gmail account (ooh - nice one!).

...and the old "if it's too good to be true..." - there's so much to question that anyone would be mad to follow it up unless they had time to waste attempting to or enjoying wasting the time of the fraudsters.

Have fun if that's the case.
