Off topic: Another scam... "Are you ready"?
Thread poster: Anne Patteet
This is what I received today. Nothing to do with translation here, but I guess it's still "money matters". If not, moderators could you please move the thread to where it belongs.
I wish this message finds you in a great mood
First I would like to congratulate you on this offer because our company just got your contact and your brief profile through an web listing. I'd be very interested in giving you a great job in which you could get an extra income up to $4000 monthly
This work won't affect your current job and this is a very limited offer in which I would require your immediate response.
I will be hoping to hear from you soon, since it is a job that will enable you to work at home.
You will also be given the opportunity of being a part of our future and winning team in which you will be highly appreciated.
Please fill out our application form, no money upfront, just your name and a phone number:
Your enquiry will be processed as soon as possible

...that it is a variant of the "pastor/bischop and his wife" scam: they send you a check and then ask you to deposit the same amount minus your "percentage" on one of their accounts, and you realize only when it's too late that their check was without provision or whatever. And it's over, they go to the next pigeon.
