    Well, another member already said they'd gotten the message as well, and furthermore that they hadn't signed up on jobbuilder (or where ever the people claimed to have gotten their email address from.) I still think that having an incorrect site address doesn't exactly add to it's credibility. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] lol

    I trashed it already. As trusting as I can be on the Internet, this didn't sit well with me. Thank you all for your input.

    DEG story

    I found the above article on a buisiness site and it seems to be talking about the same company.

    Here's another one:

    I get 4 or 5 magazines free every month, from emails. 1 of the magazines I have been getting for 7 years with out ever paying anything. However I also have an email account that gets about 500-2000 spam messages every 2 days. I use that anytime I sign up at a new site.

    It's definitely not legit all you have to do is go to deginvest.de and read the disclaimer on the right in english which states:

Special reference is made to such unauthorised websites containing appeals for donations which DEG dissociates itself from. DEG has taken the measures required to promptly put an end to these unauthorised websites.
    The only website authorised by DEG is found under the address www.deginvest.de. Furthermore, DEG wants to point out that e-mails with the addresses “…@deginvest.com” or “…@deginvest.net” do not come from DEG.
    There you go,

    of course its a scam!
    the basic premise doesent even make sense right off the bat.
    from the webpage:

    • You shall receive checks from our clients, who are unable to transfer funds abroad, and are only able to transfer funds by checks within the USA.
    so these mysterious people must be in America right?
    because they "are only able to transfer funds by checks within the USA."
    so if you can transfer the money to Germany so easily, why cant they just do it themselves?

    How many legit international banking/investing companys recruit "regular people" to help them with transactions??
    of course its a scam..
