Hi All

By way of warning, the scammer in this matter (please see previous forum posts) has started using david dot salter dot trans at gmail dot com in order to pretend to work for our company.

The warning signs are clear:

1. Using a free webmail account claiming to be from a company with its own domain name.
2. Terrible standard of English.

If anyone receives an email in relation to the above, please could you:

- notify our organisation via our website;
- notify Google of the gmail abuse;
- notify your local authorities (particularly if you are located in China, the scammer's home); and
- warn your peers in order that the scammer no longer has a ready supply of victims.

Best,

David

I will be better if you give here the link on previous posts on this top. It would be convenient for those who do not know the background.

Regards,
