Top scam of 2017?

2017-11-15 06:01

FOR sheer initiative and creativity this spam from a Mr Martins Caldwall, pharmaceutical consultant company in the U.S. must take the award for 2017 as the top spam.

According to him, found on the Internet, all I need to do to make a lot of money is obtain a supply of “a newly discovered natural herb called kshwagen herb root, available in South Africa”. (Google has never heard of it.)

According to this gentleman there is a laboratory in London in urgent need of this herb to produce medicine for allergies, inflammation, arteriosclerosis, skin infections, kidney diseases and many more.

The company is currently “paying $2 600 for a 900 gram sachet, but Mr Martins says he can supply at the lesser price of $1 800 per sachet”.

The London company is so impressed they are ready to send a representative to SA to deal with the recipient of this scam.

So all the recipient of this scam has to do is source and buy the herb from local sellers, resell to London and split the profit 60% to 40% with him, once you have submitted all banking details, etc.

He will send, once agreed to do it, details of the local suppliers in South Africa and the London pharmaceutical company.

You are free to give him a call on the number he gives, which is totally non-operative.
