Pharmaceutical companies Sep 8, 2020

I wonder why these scammers have a strong preference for pharmaceutical companies. Except for the company name, this email is very similar to the ones posted in the forum here https://www.proz.com/forum/scams/337531-is_this_a_scam.html

Thank goodness, because that gave me the opportunity to do some research and realize that I was being tricked. This is the email:

Thank God I found this thread on the forum! Something wasn't right ... and I had to do some research before giving them my details! 🙏🙏🙏🙏

I decided to "play their game" and this morning I noticed they sent me their contract. It's as dodgy as the original email! Pasted below.

I called them in Germany and the poor lady who answered the phone was not very proficient in English, so she couldn't say much, but I did email them at the email shown on the "contract" to see the degree of veracity of all this, and/or, if the company really exists, alert them that their name is being used for scams. So far no answer... I'll keep you posted.

It is not about how much some of us charge for certain jobs, it is about the average rate. Keep in mind it is not for a single job, but your salary ($191,000/year). Nobody offers you off the bat $95.50/hr without asking about your qualifications.

The Nigerian scam, the 11,000/44 pages overpayment scam are well known and much easier to spot.

Stay safe,
Lee
