So one of my responsibilites at work is Sales Manager for the Middles East region..

including Nigeria...

now every now and then i get dodgy requests from there for equipment that they either do not know what it is, or they want 5 million of the items, and then whant to pay by credit card , THEN want me also to do a favour for them,,,, like buy a notebook and ship it out to them.... of course i can smell this a mile off.

Some are so stupid they dont know when they are busted..

Anyway this guy eqnuired via the company website, so i contacted him via his email address which was a hotmail account.... kenlincltd@hotmail.com if anyone is interested lol. i then also add him to MSN so we can talk about what equipment he is after..

Bearing in mind my company manufacture Laser and Ultrasonic measurement and control solutions for manufactures of Pipe, tube and fibre optic.

his initial emails said

"Give me a list of lasers avialable. DO you have laser for cameras?"

i repied "Our Lasers form part of Diameter measurement devices.. what exactly is your application.. "

he said "I need laser lenses for cameras. "

i said "Cant help you there then.. "

he said "List to me your stock"

and it was there that he confirmed my suspicions..

anyway we then spoke on messenger..
