My First Wine Fraud Email

Hooray! Fishing comes to the world of wine and spirits.

I got this email the other day. It's obvious fishing/wire fund/money order spam to me, but might not be if you happen to sell wine in Texas. Be on the lookout, and God Bless America

    My name is Gerrard Silver , an American .I live and work here in Thailand . Actually when I was home last time in Texas, I got a bottle of one of your wines from a friend as a birthday gift and I love the taste Since then , I have been planning on getting your wines for my wedding coming up soon, here in Thailand ,I got your contact through your website and I want to know if you will be able to supply me some cases of those wines.I will be making my payment via my American issued Visa & Master card .  

    I am registered with a shipping agency in USA, which has other representatives in USA .So you are not to get the wines shipped but the wines will be picked up at your location by this licensed shipping agency. The shipping agency have all the appropriate exportation documents and permits papers, Therefore concerning the shipping of the wines , I will refer you to this shipping company that will come for the pick up of the wines in your location once I have made my payment .They have got items shipped to me here twice without any delay .

You can also forward me the list of Wine Vintages you have available.

Kindly get back to me so that I can make my orders.

Warm and Best Regards

God Bless America
