A Business Scam Within Malaysia?

Received this email today from a Cik Adilah Farah binti Affendi at affendi009k@msn.com but it was written in my national Malay language.
---------------------------------------
Kepada Tuan,

Saya memohon maaf andainya menganggu ketenangan anda. Saya amat gembira utk berkongsi satu perkara mustahak bersama anda dan biar saya perkenalkan diri saya. Nama saya Cik Adilah Farah binti Affendi, kerakyatan Malaysia, berumur 32 dan bekerja di United Kingdom dengan syarikat Crystal Blues inc. UK. Syarikat kami menjalankan urusan impot dan espot serta juga pengedaran dan pembelian barangan kimia berjenama agro dan agro allied.

Bermula dari Januari 2008 kami telah memperkenalan barangan yang bernama silicon OIL XXQZVB yang mana pengunaan sepenuhnya untuk perkapalan yang sebelum ini dikeluarkan dari negara korea utara, cuba dan Venecuela.Larangan pengimpotan ke atas barangan ini telah dikeluarkan oleh negara british. Setelah membuat kajian melalui wakil kami di Malaysia kami mendapati peluang untuk mendapatkan pengimpotan yg baru disana.

Pegawai kami akan ke Malaysia untuk membuat perbincangan mengenai perkara tersebut dan saya memberi sepenuh kepercayaan terhadapnya kerana Malaysia ialah sebuah negara yang hanya membuka peluang perkerjaan melalui kerakyatan sahaja. Harga yang di tetapkan di Malaysia untuk 1 kotak Silicon Oil USD$4,500.00 tapi pihak syarikat akan membayar sebanyak USD$6,700.00 seperti yang telah di sebut harga oleh pegawai kami.

Dari kepercayaan penuh yang di beri oleh pegawai kami kepada saya untuk mencari wakil yang sesuai untuk mendapatkan bekalan yang sepatutnya dan segala urusan bila pegawai kami tiba di Malaysia. Pasaran yang telah di tetapkan paling kurang 20 caton setiap kali pengimpotan dibuat.

Semoga mendapat kerjasama. Saya juga akan memberi keterangan mengenai wakil yang telah dilantik untuk pengetahuan anda dan semua keterangan mengenai diri anda kepada Pegawai kami untuk membuat pertimbangan yang sewajarnya dan kami juga akan mencadangkan keuntungan perjanjian sebanyak 40/60 sebagai permulaan.

Ini bermakna anda akan mendapat 60% dan lebihan semasa ialah 40%.

Yang Benar,
Adilah.

* Firstly, this email proposal was badly written with so many spelling mistakes.
* Secondly, in this era of hi-tech, you can't even find the name of Crystal Blues Inc being mentioned anywhere in the world in all searches.
* If the British has decided to ban imports of the Silicon Oil from North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela, what makes it permissible for us as Malaysians to import it?
* If it was permissible to do so, I reckon that the Malaysian authorities should investigate this proposal.
* The lure of buying the products at US$4,500 and getting to sell it at US$6,700, with a profit margin of 48% or US$2,200 (RM7,700) per carton is really tempting. Imagine getting to order / trade 20 cartons for an estimated high profit of US$44,000 (RM154,000) and your share of profits would be US$26,400 (RM92,400) at your first try.
* At this of economic uncertainties, many people would be fooled to take up this ludicrous offer.

Another blogger, The Sensintrovert, received the same email today from the same Adilah but from a different email address at adilah_farah00k@yahoo.co.uk.

Hopefully Malaysians won't be duped by this Adilah and with the two blogposts being done by me and The Sensintrovert would alert the others.

If the profit margin is really so high and viable, then what make you think we have any chance of involving it? Normally it will sapu by all rich people before it could reach commoner like us.
