On the upside, this means we'll be a fully-paid staff. On the downside, this means we'll be a fully-paid staff.

That's a hell of a lot of inflated pomp for "We googled."

And "Donal Van Doni" sounds like someone who has a Snidely Whiplash mustache, is in the mafia, or both.

Some fake business has been mailing out checks in the name of the company that I work for, claiming that the receivers of these checks have won a sweepstakes and all they need to do is cash these checks and wire a portion of the money back to the company.

Needless to say this has caused a fairly big problem at our office.

(And they couldn't have picked a non-China-based email address, for at least some semblance of legitimacy?)

Agreed. I think that would make an excellent photoshop contest.

That's my guess. Only he'd be holding a bag labeled "INTERNET MONEYS".
