Scam Email: Maria Roy

Ah, so here is an example of the same ole scam process but with different "characters" and "plot". In this case, it is not a third party shipper (who is non-existent), it is a "publisher" (who is also non-existent). That way they can set up the scam the way they need to. Their story will be that the check will be for more than what they owe because it will include the fee to the "publisher" and could you - the victim of this scam - send the "difference" to the publisher. There is no publisher. The check is fake. The only real money in the equation will be from the victim. And when you send the couple of thousands to the non-existent publisher via Western Union, it will really be going directly to the scammer, who once they've picked it up, is completely untraceable.

In reading this email, you can tell they were just using some template and didn't bother to plug in the "personalization" very well. Parts of this email make NO sense!
