Hi Mario

Hope you are well. I don't know if you want to put a bulletin out about this email (below) which is someone trying to scam dealers.

So far he has agreed to sell these laptops to company A, company B and myself - all for silly prices of 300, 350 and 375 each when their true value is nearer 1k each.

The real accountancy firm know nothing of this or this person - although he has created a fake LinkedIn profile page which paints a legitimate picture of him. The domain he is emailing from was registered just over a month ago with false telephone contact details and a gmail address.

Best Regards,

Company C

Hi Company C,

Thank you for the email. Yes they are indeed still available

All the machines we're looking to offload are the same spec as each other and detailed below - we have 4 which are unused and for sale. They were purchased last Summer and are still in their original packaging, I understand they're all still covered by some warranty as well.

Macbook Pro MD212B/A A1425 13", 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, 2.5GHz Intel Dual Core i5, Intel HD Graphics 4000

Serial numbers are;

C1MJP7HUDTY4
C17JK342DTY3
C02JXVW8DTY3
C1MJMFM8DTY4

I actually have no idea how much these retail for though I'd think we'd be looking for around 475 each inclusive of VAT and shipping though we are open to reasonable offers. I'm an accountant by trade so it's not normally my area of expertise; we had bought 20 of them originally so paid wholesale prices but we'd be open to sensible offers on these as they're lying idle at the moment and we do need to get rid of them! My colleague who organised their purchase is away on maternity leave so it's been left to me to sort them out in the meantime, even though I'm no expert! Let me know what you think and if you've any more questions

Regards,

Peter
