Mobile Disco Companies Targeted by Email Scam

If you run a mobile disco company in the UK, please see this article on www.uk-disco.co.uk/.

My mobile disco company has been targeted by this email scan several times. The first time I actually responded to the email before it dawned on my that there was just something not right about the enquiry.

The scam works in the same way as the Certified Cashier Cheque (Check) Scam I have posted about before. The "client" sends you a cashiers cheque or bankers draft which will clear into your account. They then cancel and request the payment is returned. Then, sometime later, your bank will reverse the credit to your account because the cheque / bankers draft was fake.

An example email (as given by www.uk-disco.co.uk/) follows after the jump:
