The Cixi Sunway Trade Co Ltd is a twist on the common fishing scams out there. This one pretends to be a company looking for someone to represent their products and just happened upon your email.
Sometimes, they will use legitimate companies, but claim they are a branch office in another location and ask you to send your information there rather than the main office. This way, when you research the company, it appears legitimate.
Scams like this are after your personal information, and because it appears to be an offer of employment, they have a better chance of tricking you into giving them that information.
Once a scammer has your personal information, you won’t hear from them again and your information will be used to drain your bank accounts, retirement accounts and your credit will be destroyed.
So, don’t fall for these type of scams! Here is the email I received below:

We are into Manufacturing of Fabrics, Textiles and Furniture Wares with numerous customers home and abroad. We produce various clothing materials, batiks, assorted fabrics and traditional costume.
