    I did a Google search , and such a company (Severn furnishing UK) exists, but the email doesn't belong to them. They have their own contact details. I sent them a copy of the email, but as yet still have to reply.

    What's interesting about these scam is that they always ask for the same information. Full Name..........................
    Full Address(not P.O. box)..........
    City,State,Zip Code.................
    Phone Number (S)....................
    Age........................... (why the age?)

    Take care

    There are legal challenges when it comes to minors playing with bank accounts.

    It seems scams are increasingly phising well known companies nowadays - but normally the domain of the email address is a pretty solid clue that this is a scam.

    Watch out for unsolicited credit applications from big companies seeking to procure an order. Apparently this is the giveaway for one of the latest scamming trends. Apparently the info provided is pretty complete and convincing too.

    Big companies don't fill out credit applications unless asked
    And even then, they can be a bit puffy lipped about it. Normally they're asking you to fill out a suppliers application (the cheeky b*stards).
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
