    Hello everyone,

    Good day to you!

    Today, June 13th 2013, I've received the mail from Agro Mage Trade Co., Ltd as follows:

    "Dear Sir/Madam,
    We are interested in purchasing your products and we sincerely hope to establish a long-term business relation with your esteemed company.
    Please kindly send me your latest catalog. Also, inform me about the Minimum Order Quantity, Delivery time or FOB, and payment terms warranty.

    FYI

    I think Agro Mage Trade Co., Ltd. is similar the following case posted by Keith Elcomb, Dec 5, 2011:

    "Members should be extremely careful if they receive any trade communication from this company: -

    Mega Trade Star Co., Ltd.
    Mega Trade Star Via Vittorio Veneto,
    63 - 36035 Marano Vicentino (Vicenza) Italia

    They use an ingenious method to try and obtain your master password details by asking you to use their encryption site to download an order for product.

    If you have accidentally given any such information, immediately change your passwords."

    It is very likely to get all scammed in the b2b marketplaces. I am hesitating to upgrade profiles to golden or silver membership, but I wonder if it's worth. I registered in 20 sites like this one above, and all in all none of the inquiries I receive is real.
    Or ...is it?

    I received a similar email too.

    I'm a Malaysian and I'm sure that the name, Naomi Lee is not a common name for a Malaysian. Plus the address Jalan Kesidang, is not in Kuala Lumpur. It's in Malacca. And the company name is not legit. Malaysian businesses must have Co. Ltd. in Bahasa Melayu (Malay language). It should be Sdn. Bhd. instead of Co. Ltd.

    *sorry, my English is BAD!

    Today 17.02.2013 i also received same mail as many of us received, letter below. I wrote them back, asking what they need and now they sent this mail.
    They needed to sign in with my e-mail address and password.
    But I certainly never use my authentic e-mail password of such case. Also got more confirmation from this forum, that this is a scam to get our password.

    Thanks for the response to our message. The Firm Costruzioni Meccaniche Agro Trade was founded in 2000 by two brothers,Giuseppe and Claudio Agro Trade. It developed successfully in few years and became a leading company in the world of machines and plants etc for bread production. And based in 14, Jln.Kesidang 3/6,80, Jalan Raja Chulan, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan, Malaysia. We are into buying lots of Products, Machines and Equipments etc around the world and we distribute the goods to our various clients and companies in request of the products.

    Practically every trader (and even non traders) get these on a regular basis.
    It is not really worthy of a post on these forums as most (If not all) of the forum memebers have had them at some time or other.

    The dead giveaway is their email address (why a Hotmail address) and the lack of an official website.
