Hi, I saw this in my google searches and wanted to let you know she's a real person (Michele Zaret) and that Industrial Rivet is a real company. They do a lot of business on the East Coast and provide to Thule, Grainger, Fastenall and the like. I've known her personally for 17 years. I realize this thread is a little old but you should contact them to let them know about this issue. I'm not sure why the email was routed through China or why the return address is odd but they were likely hacked. You can reach them through their official website: www.rivet.com

I'm a little surprised you don't do more research first and just report all these emails as fraudulent like your sticky post says. Usually a simple google search will clear things up.

The email in the 1st post is a scam, sent by an criminal & thief. Furthermore, it is also unsolicited email, what is there to research?

The email did not come from the website you mention, the "reply to" address is a yahoo.

If its In my email then it's a scam. Maybe there is identity theft but it still remains a scam format.

Yes I can understand that there was indeed identity theft here but do you alert the parent companies so they can research it?
