Fraud. Another one!

One out of five!

Dear Friend,

This email is from the desk of Mr CARLO BOZOTTI,President and Chief Executive Officer of STMicroelectronics,who has it worldwide headquater s in GENEVA SWITZERLAND.

STMicroelectronics was created in 1987 by the merger of SGS Microelettronica of Italy and Thomson Semiconducteurs of France with the aim of becoming a world leader in the sub-micron era.Since its formation, ST has grown faster than the semiconductor industry as a whole and it has been one of the world`s Top Ten semiconductor suppliers since 1999. ST offers one of the world`s broadest product ranges, with over 3,000 main types of products. The carefully balanced portfolio includes both application-specific products containing a large proprietary IP content and multi-segment products that range from discrete devices to high- performance microcontrollers.

Due to the balancement between the industry`s five major high-growth sectors:
Communications, Consumer, Computer, Automotive and Industria, we have reached big sales volume in the european market and now are trying to penetrate the American and Asia market, and Quite soon we will open representative offices and authorized sales centers all around the globe and therefore we are currently looking for people who will assist us in establishing a new distribution network there. The fact that despite the market is new for us we already have regular clients also speaks for itself. This idea of REPRESENTATIVE OFFICES AND DISTRIBUTION CENTRES is making us to contact you today to know if you would be able to perform the duties below
