I work for a export/import company owned
by China based owners. Ask for a catalog
or listing of merchandise, and they should
easily tell you about agents.
Hide/Seek - forget it! Someone
must call you and talk about the
business opportunity. Remember,
if you do any biz with entities outside
your state - your asking for legal hassles
(i keep warning people on Nationstartup
about this!!) You do not want to get
sued across international lines. Take-care.
I can`t believe for a minute that it could be for real. I agree I do not think that a REAL business would spam the internet to have 90% of their money go to someone that they don`t know. Further more I would guess they want you to send them some good faith money to get the ball rollin.
Have a great one!
Ever wonder what would happen if you scammed the scammer?
Good for a few laughs...
I just wanted to second the remarks made by Canadiasian - I am a big fan of "relationship marketing" - the key to new customers is making sure that existing clients experience a professional, positive, "better than expected" relationship with me so it is easier for them to make referrals - being in the position of money conduit only - even if it is trying to be a legitimate operation - you have no capacity to address, much less solve a problem for a customer, and it IS your name and company that gets connected to that... on that basis alone, I would let this "opportunity" pass-
Hope that helps!
Don`t walk from this "great deal"... RUN!
Since we are part of the financial community, we get such and similar requests on a regular basis. ALL of them are scams in some form or another. This one you`re looking at could range from phishing (trying to get your account info and details to clean you out) to money laundering. Best case scenario - and that`s with a lot of goodwill - they`re looking for someone to collect on their bad debt for 10%, while regular collection agencies would charge anywhere between 25% - 35% of collected funds. Think about it! Why would you be "negotiating payment terms" with someone who had already purchased products from these people? Payment terms are negotiated BEFORE the transaction takes place, not afterwards. Unless you`re dealing with the "won`t pay" customers.
Anyway, don`t waste your time with this! It`s always better to focus on YOUR business and not get sidetracked by such "great offers".
