Sir/Madam,

Our Company is interested in your product, that we saw  in trading site,

Your early reply is very necessary for further detail specification immediately you receive our email.

Regards
Purchasing manager,
Mr James Vincent .

Innex, Inc.
325 Enterprise Place,
Pomona, CA 91768
United States.

Innex is based in California in the US, but the email appears to be from a university in Colombia and solicits replies to an email address in Taiwan. Note as well that the email is very vague about the "product" they are interested in, and the To: field is blank as the recipient list has been suppressed (i.e. it is being sent to multiple recipients). Avoid.

I got email from "them" today and suspected was some sort of scam or virus. Our institution tries to identify these types of things so we can notify our community to avoid the threat so I did some web searching and found that Innex was apparently legit company dealing in video gaming & controllers. I recently ordered a modded video game controller online, but it was from a different company (ScufGaming). Now a little worried and wondering if just coincidence or if something worse!?

KimB, it may have nothing to do with your purchase. I think it's geared towards online email addresses tied to sites.

I received a version of this from: ambernal@fucsalud.edu.co
"Mr. James Vincent"
and have made no such purchases.

1) Sent to undisclosed recipients (in my version) = alert
2) No phone number = alert
3) No examples of products = alert

In my case, what I sell is so far unrelated to gaming that I could tell it wasn't for real. And it did go directly to my spam folder...

Good luck!
