There is a website for INF consulting, although it is sketchily detailed. I am concerned by the lack of detail on the actual work, and the fact that the grammar and use of language on the mail is not as expected. However, other than a passport copy, there is no request for any detailed personal information – bank accounts etc…
Can anyone offer advice?

Best Regards,

It’s not real. NO company would ever ask a complete stranger they had never met in person to open a bank account or handle financial transactions for ANY reason. This is called money laundering and tax evasion and you can go to prison for this

And DO NOT EVER send a copy of your passort to anyone for any reason – this is identity theft
