Hello, I have a very profitable business which I would like your company to handle and execute on a partnership basis. There is this wealthy cattle farmer who needs a very important cattle vaccine. We will get the vaccine at a price of USD575 per carton and sell to the farmer at USD1250 per carton. The farmer will make an upfront payment of 70% of his total order to your company and pay the balance 30% when the shipment is ready. He needs more than 3000 cartons now. Can you get back to me for details? This contract is 100% risk free and guaranteed returns. Regards, David Pascal phsandra00w@gmail.com

How to check if you received a scam email

  1. Google the details.

    Do a Google search for the persons name/company name that the email has come from.

  3. Confirm using the information you have found

    Using the details you have researched, call or email the business and ask them to verify the information within the email.

  4. Check if the email has been sent to multiple people

    Google snippets of the email text to see if the same format has been used in the past. eg “Army officer from Syria but now living with the United Nations on asylum”
