      I received the same email on May 5th, 2019. I researched the company on line, called their number during business hours in Japan and checked out the names of the company officials. They sent a "Memorandum of Understanding" when I provided some information: name, address. I signed the M.O.U. and they emailed me a contact name, phone, and an unpaid invoice from Flotech Marketing & Research in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

      I contacted the individual at Flotech, called him, emailed him, and got no response. In fact the email was returned as undeliverable and the phone # had no answering service.

      I notified Nichi-Iko contact. I checked out Flotech on line and found a "contact us" button on the website. I email them. Finally, next day I got a call from a Mr. Clyde Mathews who said he had been"tasked" to settle the balance due on the Invoice and check info on where to send money to settle the account in installments.

      Next morning, Fed Ex delivers an envelope with a check for a very large amount from "a third party". Nichi-Iko emailed me to deposit the check. In a new, separate checking account, I made the deposit. It would take 3-5 business days to clear the bank said. I sent a copy of the check to N-I. By the end of the weekend, there was a "hold" on the check, then a note to contact the Fraud Department at this large, multI national bank, which I did. The "note" meant the check had been"returned to maker" by their own request, and that the "check didn't match checks for the 3rd party they had on file.

      I tried to contact both Flotech and Nichi-Iko many times to get an explanation. There has been no response from either and no further contact with Mr. Mathews. My bank reported this as a "total scam" and cautioned about having any further dealings with them. 'Caveat Emptor'
