Norway Consulting 2006—Pink Ass, Punk Ass...

Okay... let's say I'm currently looking for a job. I receive this email and think: wow! 8% of 1 million is US $80,000! Of course, I want that kind of a salary (well most people would want such a salary.)

Okay, the email was sent by "Norway Consulting 2006". You read on and they were incorporated in 1997. Why would they have such a name with "2006" into it?! DEJFXEX -- must be a valid name in Norway. Not sure though. Okay... @ what?!? Punk Ass?!? Hmmmmmmmmm... Norway Consulting is using an email address ending with "Pink Ass"?! Ho sorry, no "Punk Ass"! That too, maybe it means something else in Norway...

Well, anyway... what's that position about already?! Ho! I see, I will have to help making transfers of large sum of money between bank accounts for their clients. Interesting. They don't know me, maybe I'll make a few mistakes and get the money in Panama or something. You can still have 100% anonymous accounts in Panama, so that's a good idea. 8-) They won't know where the money is, right?

By the way, I'm a programmer so I think I'll pass...

In brief, what I have to say is: they wrote this email pretty well. It does sound like they are really hiring people for a legitimate company. So, watch out... This is NOT a real opportunity, it is a total scam.
