    Just in case anyone needs to know, these folks are at it once more! Besides, I have never had to include my maritial status on any application before now, how about any of you?


    WAN THAI FOODS INDUSTRY CO., LTD.
    Bangchan Industrial Estate, Plot Khor-1 Moo
    14 Serithai Rd.Minburi Bangkok 10510 Thailand.

    OFFER AS A REPRESENTATIVE

    INTRODUCTION:

    Wan Thai Foods Industry Company Limited was set up in 1972 and in 1973,
    the company tied up with Japanese seasoning and food Ajinomoto in a joint
    venture. We have become one of the leading manufacturers. Of instant
    noodles in Thailand, under the Yum Yum? brand name. The company
    manufactures a variety of instant noodle products under "YUM YUM" brand
    name which consist of bag noodles, cup noodles, & bowl noodles in a Wide
    variety of popular flavours. The Yum Yum? instant noodles brand has been
    familiar to customers in Thailand for many generations. It is now a
    favourite for consumers all around the world.


    We also produce OEM (private label) brands for international companies.

    As a result of product reliability and astute management, we are not only
    growing steadily but also successfully launching new varieties of
    ready-cooked (ready to eat) products for dish and dessert in Thai cuisine,
    packed in retort pouch under WAN THAI? brand name. And again we also
    produce OEM (private label) brands for international companies.

    Our company produces an ample line of seasoning products both in powder
    and paste (flavoured oil) forms, for domestic and overseas markets.
    Moreover, we offer contract packing at buyer's specification.


    Rewarded with HACCP certificate:
    Furthermore, with our production Quality and well-recognized brand name in
    foreign markets, we received the rewarded with HACCP Certificate on July
    1999, to ensure that foods offered to the consumer are safe to eat
    accordance to The United Nation food standard group Codex Alimentations
    Commission recommended HACCP's adoption as a system for ensuring the
    safety of foods and the prevention of food borne diseases.

    And on August 2001 we received the certificate of ISO 9001/2000 from SGS
    (Thailand).This ensures our company's capability in achieving quality
    management, product process and product quality.

    Due to the vast spread of our products to other countries, we decided to

    who will be serving as a link between us and our customers within that
    province. It is upon this note that we are writing you to seek your
    assistance in representing our company in your locality as our
    distributor.

    It is upon this note that we are writing you this mail to seek your
    assistance in representing our company in your locality as our distributor
    because quite soon we will open representative offices and authorized
    sales centres in North America and therefore we are currently looking for
    people who will assist us in establishing a new distribution network
    there. The fact that despite the Central and Northern America market is
    new for us we already have regular clients also speaks for itself. This I
    believe will make you know that we have long been in to business already.

    Note that if eventually you are selected by the company to do this job,
    you would be placed on a Monthly salary of $5, 000, 00, a 5% commission
    for sales you make for each goods and also for any payment you receive on
    behalf of the company. Note that you would also be entitled to other
    allowances which include Health, Travelling and retirements benefits.

    BENEFITS:

    - Basic salary of 60,000 United States Dollars a year. (i.e., 5,000.00 USD
    monthly) and - 4% bonus on total sales of company products quarterly,
    - Plus 5% commission on payment made to you on behalf of the company by
    our customers/clients.

    As a Representative of our company, your basic functions are as follows:

    1. Maintenance of a sales office. The company will be responsible for ALL
    costs including phone and other charges.

    2. Assume responsibility for the office.

    3. Lastly, contacting clients on behalf of the company who are ready to
    make payments for products supplied.

    To facilitate this transaction if you deem you would be able to undertake
    this task for the company, I would want you to submit to us via this Email
    the following information which include following:

    (1) FULL NAMES:
    (2) CONTACT ADDRESS:
    (3)YOUR STATE ZIPCODE:
    (4) PHONE/FAX NUMBERS:
    (5) OCCUPATION/POSITION:

    According to the BBB and several other sites, this is a scam. I was looking for information on this myself.

    Just in general, any 'job' opportunity that wants your information and uses phrases such as ' we are expanding quickly' or 'we need a distributor' or representative etc etc, means its a check cashing scam.

    Also note that they do not specify where they found your resume (assuming you ARE actually looking for a job). No company generally asks you for your address and other personal information after sending an email like that immediately. First they will want at least a phone interview or a letter of interest/reply.

    The only websites mentioning Wan Thai/YumYum are review or listing sites like alibaba and this one.
    http://www.allproducts.com/thailand/wtf/

    There is a site for Yum Yum foods, listed as under construction. Do Not Visit!!! ; the d-mn thing has an
    autorun fake antivirus scan that will lock up your browser and likely dump Smitfraud on your PC

    Another mention of the scam letter from 2008.

    Has anyone actually seen a "Yum Yum" brand pot noodle in the grocery store?
