Hello - not sure if people have already been alerted to this, but am attaching an e mail scam I received which is targetting therapists, take care!! :

Hello Friend,


How are you today? My Name is Mr Harry Coloney,I live and live and work here in USA. I am 46yrs old. I have been doing massage since 1989. I do a deep relaxation massage in which the muscles relax without pain. I also do energy massage that helps people feel great when I am done. I am certified to do pregnancy massage. I have lots of happy clients here in America.



I have a client Miss Julian Moore a model here in USA. she will be coming to the UK in some weeks time for a modeling job and she will be residing in a Hotel within Your Area temporarily until the neccesary arrangement for her job has been made before she leaves . she will be needing bodywork and relaxation massage of 90 min session 2days a week for 1
month ,she asked me to come with her to the UK but I told her I would not be able to go with her to the UK as I have a course I will be going for in a week time. I promised to help her get a good therapist in your Area.Pls tell me a little more about your self and if You can give Me references of people you have worked with.

Her boss gave her the sum of 2,950 Pounds in certified bank cheque being payment for the massage and the rest for the equipments She will be renting for her modeling job but The Equipments rental manager stated that the only way she can book for her Equipment is if she can wire their money to them via Western Union as it is their company policy that all money for booking of Equipments must be wired to them via Western Union. let me know if she can make the cheque in your name so that when you Receive the cheque you cash and deduct your payments and send the rest to the modeling Equipments manager via Western Union.

Hi Caroline

A couple of collegues of mine have had a similar email - the IMPORTANT thing is - DO NOT SEND any cheque or money!

I will email my group members. Thanks
