I wonder, given the previous emails, with the ASIC entry, and, the reference to
the jurisdiction of the Perth MFT, whether anyone has forwarded a copy of the
particular spam message (without the parts of the header that identify the
recipient), and, the ASIC entry, to the Perth office of the MFT, as a
complaint? They could investigate it, and, perhaps, seize any cheques to the
enterprise, to stop the scam.

Maybe that would be useful, in this particular case.

Perhaps Alex has an interest in the enterprise?
