Today I got an e-mail:
do u sell club ? or have project to invest ?
let me know. we are high interested
It was from Kazakhstan. Amusing; I looked up the company (Kulibayev Conglomerate) and unsurprisingly it was a scam.
A few hours later I had a meeting with an acquaintance. They were excited about a new project which they kept saying had funding from the Middle East. It sounded suspicious; a too good to be true opportunity. Mysterious investors from the almighty Middle East (“Rich people! Oil money!”) willing to fund a brand new business.
I asked to see the e-mail chain; it was clearly a scam. The e-mail says for new projects they’re willing to invest 1 million to 500 million dollars. Most suspicious, there was an abundance of words with capitalization that was unnecessary.
In short: Proper capitalization matters.
