    So I checked out the website (as listed above) and something seemed "off". I looked up the phone # listed above and it was for a hotel in Auckland, NZ. same address and everything. I know this is probably a scam, similiar to some of the others I have read about on this site. I searched around for more info on this site and the web but did not find out much. However, I wanted to get it out there to if anyone else has received something like this, and if it is a scam, get more info about it and so people don't get sucked in.

    Regards :)

    I got the same email and checked out the web site. If you read closely you will notice a number of grammatical errors and I also noticed that their stock quote module was reporting that it was being used in an unauthorized manner.

    Stay away from these guys.

    Do NOT reply or get involved with these people. Speaking from experience, I was absolutely scammed by them. What they do is send you checks that seem legit from U.S banks to your home and they want you to deposit them into your account and wire transfer a portion of the money out of the country to their company. They have paper work and even say that you will be prosecuted if you do not transfer the funds into their account within 48 hours of recieving a check. So, I was scared and did everything I was supposed to do. Just a few hours after the checks cleared and I wired the money, the banks notified me that the check were bad. I had to pay every single sent back, they closed my account, and my credit is screwed up for years. These people got their money. DO NOT BE A VICTIM!!!!
