I, Robert, have the following thoughts/comments on this suspected fraudulent email message from “TRANSNET SOC LTD”:
The requested parts list specifically contain 2 part nos. TSN-HDS170 and NDPY-SC50IF
Which are only located on 1 site in South Africa. A fake company website designed to con people "hidrotechsystems.co.za"
The site is clearly fake. They haven't bothered to change company names or do much really. Except update the contact details.
