    We just received this EXACT email from Mark of Welshhome Fiduciary. They dont actually type the body of the email...the body is pasted as an image. That was another tip off for me that something was off. Like they say, if it seems too good to be true....

    Thank you for confirming what I believed to be a scam.

    I'm going to forward to the email address posted above.

    I reieved the simillar email but became skeptic when they made it so simple that I can deposit the money in my local bank where they have the agent which was the name of of the person and not the company. I think these people are also operating from my country too. Thanks for the awareness.
