Spam message has no Austrian connection. 

A spam message is currently being sent by a company called Global Austrian Syndicate (GAS). GAS is looking for a person to act as their ‘Financial Manager’; the role would involve the use of a personal bank account for the transfer of money.

According to our information, this company has no relationship to Austria.

GAS appears to be a fraudulent venture, functioning as a money-laundering scheme; the methods involved also allow for direct theft from the victim’s bank account.

We advise you to ignore this email and delete it immediately.
