E-mail Scam? - AAA Liquidators Warehouse

I just received what looks like an e-mail scam. It's either a scam or perhaps illegal activities that needs someone to work for them. I actually googled "AAA Liquidation Warehouse Scam" and it did not yield any result except for this FB link.  Looks like e-mails were sent in the Philippines sometime in December. Google search results also provide maps, etc. of this AAA Liquidation company.  There's even a positive review at bloglines though it's also suspicious. I don't believe in product reviews anymore because when I was looking for "work at home jobs," there are many "job openings" to make positive reviews of their products. If you receive this e-mail, beware. I really think it's scam because....

- First, the offer...It's too good to be true. If you search for jobs from home...the most you can receive for virtual assistants is US$ 15/hour.

- Why would a company entrust receiving payments to a stranger? Considering the offer, it is safe to assume that receivables would be large sums. For legit transactions, bank transfer is the usual mode of transfer - not western union. So either it's a scam or illegal activities going on.

Here's a copy of the email...
