I was looking for my ex-husband a job on the internet and someone sent him a check for $2875 to do shopping surveys. He had one of my friends sign the check and deposit it into her account and then we were suppose to wire $2575 back to them and keep the rest for a salary. Well I figured out before we spent any of the money or sent any back that it was a scam. Casey

Dear friend.

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable
bank
Draft of $800.000.00 United States Dollars but I did not hear from you
since
that time,then I decided to involve the issued bank to avoid losing of
the
funds,When i got to the bank,the director told me that the cheque has
three
weeks to expire that after three weeks it will be invalid then i told
the
director to convert the check into cash to avoid losing of the funds
but
he said i have to hire a lawyer before that can be done since the
beneficaiy
that the cheque was on his or my boss that signed the cheque is not
here,a
lawyer will be involve for the signing and the procurement of vital
documentsneeded
for that.

I have no choice than to hire alawyer who will assist me on this matter
as i was told by the bank to signed for the convertion of your
cheque,After
meeting with the bank lawyer who looked into the matter he told me that
he will arrange for the documents as well as the signings for the bank
to
covert the cheque into cash payment but he said i should pay him
$2500.00
for the job, then i explained to him that i don't have the money but
pleaded
with him that as soon as the job is done that the money will be
deducted
from the money before anything.

The bank director also assured me that after the convertion of your
check,the
money will be packaged and deposited with the bank official security
company
for save keeping as well as the delivering of your package to your home
address.

Am happy to inform you that the job hasbeen done,the check has been
converted
into cash and is right there with United State Parcel Service for
deliver,remember

My husband recieved a cashiers check from a guy from canada that was purchasing a motocycle that he was selling on craigslist and the guy sent him $4300. he was only selling the bike for $2000 and the guy said that he was sending him that amount and that he was to keep the part for the bike and to send the rest to his"shipper" and yes we did exactly that. except in our situation we didnt have a checking account so we went to a check cashing place who called and verified the check and cashed it. now the DA is prosecuting my husband for fraud. isnt that nice...the sad thing about it is that my husband is only 25 has never been in trouble in his life and only has one year left in college...this could totally ruin our lives. the detective told us that my husband could do time in a state prison. great justice system right....go figure...the VICTIM pays the price...

My mom just called me last night and asked me to look into this. Some guy contacted her via email and said he owned a security company out of rome italy. They do most of their work here and needed people to cash their checks here because it was much quicker than sending all the way to Rome. By the way here is the U.S. All she needed to do was cash the check he would send her in her name, and then wire transfer the money to the person he would tell her to with in twenty four hours. She would get ten percent plus the cost of the transfer. She told him repeatedly that she would not do anything until it cleared and would not give out her bank account information and would set up a seperate account just for that. After many emails back and forth she recieved a check for 2450.00 from Loeb Electric....which does exist. Still I told her do not send anything anywhere. Well according to her bank online it cleared but there is something up with that and I found this article right away. She sent this article to him and has heard nothing from him in the last twenty four hours. Go figure. So now what? I say there is no way that check, being an out of state ck actually fully cleared and she should call the electric company and report him to the FBI. Under no circumstances is she to send anything anywhere. If it is too good to be true it is. Would'nt that be nice though...hey we could all get rich cashing real checks for over seas. lol.

I met a guy over the net, he says he works as an engineer for the USA goverment, and now he's in Africa on business. He has asked me to help him to cash a money order saying hes out of cash and there in Africa they dont know money orders. Could it be a scam? I have told him I dont have any money but he insists.
