Noticing some spelling errors, and google searching the company (not an impressive webpage), and google maps-ing the address...well I'm not convinced. Many years of being on the internet has made me always initially skeptical of things...
Anyway; has anyone ever heard of this company. Worked with this company? Know anything about this?
If anything here may be a little forewarning for anyone else who may get this email.
