This is an email I received. Sounds shady to me but what does everyone think?

on skin care products using naturally-derived ingredients. We strive to
use as many natural, vegetable-derived ingredients as possible.These
types of products are in great demand in the health conscious market of
America and <span class=”yshortcuts” id=”lw_1239121865_1″>Europe</span>. We also produce the finest chinese slim teas,
facial wrinkles solution and lots more.
We offer the following

* Low minimums of quality, specialized products.
* High production capacity
We have 13 years of experience in this field during which we have been marketing and reaching out to customers under TTNET.
TTNET is a professional trade web site maintained by Transworld
Information Corp. Whose services main goal is to build a bridge between
buyers and sellers. TTNET is a market that small companies sell
through, however a lot of companies like ours are beginning to realize
that contrary to their claims, TTNET is rather a rip off place, and so
We have ended our contract with TTNET because we want to take full
control of our activities, from production to international money
management. We have been hindered by strict rules that work against the
interest of our company.
Our marketing through TTNET in the past took care of the need to build
a website, as we marketed our products overseas under their license.
But we have noticed that our product are not well known due to poor
marketing and so We are currently looking for a united states resident
editor to edit our advert video coverage of the effect of our numerous
products demonstrated on certain people with respectful skin problems.
It is a very difficult task to convince clients on how effective and
different from the regular asian herbal treatment our products are,
considering the fact that there are so many other brands of herbal
treatment here in the <span class=”yshortcuts” id=”lw_1239121865_3″>asian market</span> and even cheaper. So in an attempt
to demonstrate the unmatched target effects of our numerous products,
we want to hire an editor, to make better videos of demonstration.
Currently, we have a panasonic camcoder in ntsc format, and we will
always mail footage to you through our ups account. When you finish
cutting, we will give you a list of contact, to which duplicate copies
should be sent. This process will also be taken care of from our ups
account, under no circumstances should you mail the raw footage to
anyone, and also, care must be taken not to damage the footage. All
footage are to be sent back to us in the same batches as was sent to
you and also through our ups account. So basically, a clerk from here
will always prepare shipping labels for you, so that all you will have
to do is paste the label on the envelope carrying each advert video CD
and drop them off at any ups outlet close to you. All the extra work
will be considered during salary negotiation.
The advert videos will focus on the condition of whichever part of the
body concerned before and after the use of our products. This step is
suppose to be taken care of through our website, but we have been bared
from launching a website until our case with our previous marketers are
solved. As bad as our jurisdiction is, we do not see the case ending
anytime soon, as we keep getting months of adjournment every time. So
the employment of an editor is to make sure we do not lack behind
during court process, which is not against the law.
However, as soon as our website is launched, we will cease to mail you
footage to edit, instead, we will upload them on our site for you to
download and edit. We strongly refuse to upload our footage to any
external link or site different from ours, and forbid you to do the
same at any given time. Let us know if you can handle this kind of
work, and also send any questions you may have here, and we will get
back to you as soon as possible.”
