    Fishy business... sending goods to singapore

    Background:
    I have a small store with a webpage and email (no e-commerce by it self) we are located in northern Europe and do our nain business over the counter in the shop and ocasional mail order ( customer mouth to mouth ).

    Anyway we reciever a email today from a fellow named Richard.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    mail:
    ###############################

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I am interested to buy several things from your company. Before I choose the
    product that I want, I have some question :

    1. Do you accept credit card for payment?
    2. Could you ship the order to Singapore By UPS, FedEx or DHL?
    3. The total cost that i want are include shipping and handling fees to
    Singapore.

    Please give me the best answer so we can do best business for future.
    I waiting for your confirmation as soon as possible.
    Thanks for your attention and have a nice day.

    Best Regards

    ###############################

    I do suspect this to be some sort of fraud or scam as this would require us to send goods that we dont produce our self to the other side of the globe.

    Oh and the domain in the mail is registerd by myprivateregistration.com on 2008-02-25

    Anyone with any input on this?

    (whats up with the post showing 3 times in a row?)

    Hey backfire,

    I just received this one today as well. I'm in the same boat as you, e-mail and website, but no way to order online (and this is mostly why). I also received a similar mail last month from someone claiming to be from somewhere on the African continent asking for the same kind of deal. I'd avoid these guys like the plague.

    Cheers,
    FredBird
