Dear AllOur Factory got the same email just like this.The first one,they ask for our catalog then,he said he like us to OEM T-shirt for them:The first email that we got:
Thanks for your email.
Please before we proceed on this business I want you to understand that I like doing business with honest people, I have reason for saying this last year we experience a disappointment from a firm in Malaysia after linking them to a football club for a contract work and also running around to make sure I arrange a lawyer for them that will stand on their company's behalf here in England on an agreement of my commission and they disappoint me by given me less than the percentage we agreed, secondly I want u to understand that am just an agent am not the one issuing out the contract, what the management wants is a white garment round neck with a (red oil paint) write up (wolves united)at the back of the white garment and (fan)write up at the left chest of the garment, like I describe for you in my previous mail to you in trading site for wolves football club fans, so if u are to prepare your proforma invoice it has to come with your company full contact
address signed by the director of your firm and should also include the shipping cost, make sure u address the invoice to the management of wolves united football club and send it to my email for me to go through it and correct some things to avoid rejection ,before I can give you the wolves football club management contact for you to forward your invoice, all this should be done to avoid rejection from the management, like I told you there are many competitors, other firms with different agents are also struggling for the same contract, so I will like us to put hand together and work hard and see if the contract will be awarded to your company .
CHECK THE ATTACHED SAMPLE.
ROUND NECK WHITE T-SHIRT SHORT SLEEVE
1. Style Round Neck T-shirts, Short sleeve
2. Yarn 100% cotton
3. Size Normal European size
4. Color White (With One Red Color Printing, NO Embroidery)
5. Packing One dozen per one poly bag in carton box
6 . GSM 180-200
7.Target Price USD6.50 including my commission
Printing oil red colour at the left chest ( Fan )
Printing oil red colour at the back ( Wolves United )
(ii) Note: that you have to add 5% per garment which will be my commission an it will be transfer to my account as soon as the fund for the manufacturing of the garment is transferred to your companies account by the wolves united football club, and should be a secret between me and you, and should be out of sight in the invoice,
(iii) if you make your target prize $6.50 per garment I think the management of wolves united football club will consider it because other firms has been coming with 7 some 9.5 dollar and they have been rejecting their pi, the delivery date should be before 3rd week of JULY because the garment is for their football fans for this second division Pepsi league that is starting on 1st week of SEPTEMBER 2012.
(iv)Based on my previous experience if your are lucky enough and the award the contract to your firm the contract documents will sent to you to sign and return to their office the will immediately instruct there bank to transfer 85% of the total production money into your company's account and within 3 to 4 days I will fly down to your country with the empirical sample to monitor the production for few days.. so we have to be a little bit fast because time is very short and the management of wolves united football club wants to issue out this contract by next week so we need to make sure your invoice gets to the desk of their general manager soonest
(v)Finally, I want to clarify you on one thing, based on my previous experience before the management of wolves united football club will award you a contract you must have a recognized lawyer in England that will stand on your company's behalf and surety you on the contract for security of their fund since there mode of payment is T/T and only your bank confirmation is not 100% guaranty for safety of their fund. So please while we are struggling on getting the contract you should also find a recognized British lawyer in England wolves Hampton City. Provide me with your direct mobile number and also give me a call.

And then we talked to our lawyer,at the same time,both the lawyer and the agent keep pushing us to deposit the money to Western Union because that was a day before THEIR MEETING WITH Boca seniorfc THE FOOTBALL TERM THIS IS WHAT OUR LAWYER SAID:
As spoken, it sounds unusual for requiring an Affidavit / Oath in private commercial deal.
Also, how could the "lawyer" obtain an Affidavit / Oath in your company's name from the Court without the presence of your company's representative there (bearing in mind the "lawyer" does not yet to have any authority from your company to swear the Affidavit / Oath for and on the behalf of your company)?
We were lucky we are not greedy,because if we paid the lawyer,we will (That was what they want us to believe) get the contract signed and should have the 85%of the PI payment T/T to our bank....which we were talking about USD6.5 x 250,000pieces T shirt.You do the math...
Our lawyer told us to search that lawyer's firm,there is no such firm but a site name Scam – sender domain lawyer.com,that had firstname.lastname@example.org in it.http://www.419scam.org/419-lawyer-com.htm
So we like to posted this experience to share and warn other factory.
