Fraud. Would Virgin use GMail? NO!! NO!!

I've now got upwards of fifty of these to my main e-mail addresses. I dread to think how many are in my spam trap. Always be suspicious when you get more than one e-mail.

One out of five!

Looking for part-time job?

Important Notes :-

1. Whatever you do, do not respond to any e-mail like this. If you have given bank details to any fraudster like this, then inform your bank immediately and also make sure that you close the account.

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from,, etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to, etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.

Too right. 1st email is slightly plausible. Second one full of spelling mistakes and the suggestion that you have to receive funds from investors into your personal account and then transfer them on to clients must ring alarm bells

I e-mailed twice. I received two such similar e-mails with few differences such as names and e-mail ids.
