MAKE MONEY FAST
Usually we don't post single scam letters,
but it isn't every day that someone offers
to sell Scamorama wash-wash chemicals.
Unless this Lad has a sense of humor....

A few scam-o-notes:
(1) This e-mail was sent directly to Scamorama.
(2) ANTI-BREEZE BANK NOTES: Money covered with black powder, sometimes also vaseline.
Can be washed off with (surprise) expensive 'chemicals'. aka WASH WASH. The idea is they show you some money (see photo above, the one they used most often in the past to tempt their victims), and tell you it's been "defaced for security reason". If you go to meet them (DON'T!) they'll show you a heap of money, the top layer of which has been messed up with black powder and vaseline. They'll take some "precious chemical" and wash off one of the bills. But oop! they're out of chemical. You must help buy more. Getting it now?
The Lads didn't invent this, but they have made good use of it.
In YOU DONT TALK TO MY MAGA NO MORE, the Unkindly Contributor induced a Lad to write up a Materials Safety Data Sheet for his wash-wash chemical. American laboratories are expected to have an MSDS on hand for each chemical in stock. (For all we know this is done in other countries too.) It covers things like the specific risks of exposure to that chemical, and how to clean it up if there's a spill.
(3) "operated by worldwide Science Associates for the U.S. Department of Currency (DOC)"
Maybe a reference to SAIC, a government contractor.
There is no U.S. Department of Currency.
(4) One of our associates around the world looked at greenlabellaboratory.com - it was "Under Construction".
It's run by Yahoo small business hosting. At least that's what the site says. We assumed the whole thing was a satire. But look at the registration info:
Addresses: 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199
So maybe it really is hosted by Yahoo.
So this Lad is paying to mount "greenlabellaboratory.com".

Do they really intend to market wash-wash chemicals, in bulk, over the internet?
In which case it's a scam on scammers, because you don't need expensive chemicals to clean dirt off paper. Scammers must know this, right? So we're back to the theory that this scammer has a sense of humor and is willing to indulge it to the extent of forking out money. Could it be?
Maybe Green Label Laboratory exists only for the purpose of seeing who looks at it.
A sort of clumsy counter-intelligence operation.
What do you think?
