I received this email a week or two ago. It seemed surprisingly legit at first- I checked the company out through Google, etc. But after a talk with my bank and very cautious boyfriend (thank goodness) about it, I started looking through some of these scam websites. This company isn't mentioned yet on any message boards, but I thought they should be.
The Kelley Wilson who contacted me used a gmail domain for the first message, then went on to use a generic one afterward. Suspicious. Also, they're not remotely local to of the offices is in New Hampshire (supposedly) and others are in Canada (red alert on the fraud) and Western Europe (another red flag). But after viewing their website and invented history and financial news, I must say...
It's amazing how much work people will put in just to rip other people off.
