I received 6 checks today in the sum of 950 each totaling $5,700. The person uses the name SaintMichaelbrown@yahoo.com

He claims he is an artist and a MCSE professional coing to the states to open another art gallery. I went on line to validate the address of the bank and viola and see this posting about WF National bank being fake. The money orders are from Wal Mart with no return address or sender information.. Please be aware i was almost taken until a co-worker mentioned to me about scams going on in manchester, England his wife is from London and knows the scam too well. She sued to work for a bank there!!

God Bless All!

Please be careful

You can be 100% certain that any money order or bank check that a stranger sends you is a worthless fake.

What must people don't know is that all banks will make a checks funds 'available' to the account holder within 2 or 3 days. This does NOT mean the check is good or has cleared.

When a check is deposited into a bank account it can take several weeks or a month to actually clear. So if a check is fake or there is insuffient funds the account holder won't be notified of this until weeks or a month after depositing the check.

If the account holder withdraw the funds that were made available then they have to repay the bank immediately or face criminal penalties.

CASTLE TEXTILES AND FABRICS

How are you, My name is Chris Anderson and I own a company that sells
Chinese and African textile and fabric material in London, I am looking
for a trustworthy representative in USA /Canada that can help as a link
between me and my client over there. i would like to know if you are
interested to work from home for us CASTLE TEXTILES AND FABRICS needs a book-keeper or representative in the states, so I want
to know if you will like to work on line from home and getting paid
weekly without leaving or affecting your present job? I presently run a
textile and fabrics firm in London and we need
someone to work for the company as a representative/book keeper in
Canada/USA.
My company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted
fabrics and traditional costumes. We have clients we supply weekly in
the states and my clients make payments for our supplies every week in
form of money orders or cashiers check which are not readily cashable
outside the US or Canada, so we need someone in the States/Canada to work
as our representative and assist us in processing the payments from our
clients and I will pay him/her a weekly wage, by percentage. All you
need to do is receive this payment from our clients in the States or
Canada and get it cashed in your bank or a cashing center then deduct
your 10% and forward the balance to the company down here via money gram
or western union money transfer. The main reason why the funds cannot be
cashed down here is that it would take 20-24 days for a a US money
order to pass through the bank here an d that would tie down my capital
and not make business move fast as i expected, but a US money order
presented to the bank in the US would clear tops within 48hrs and the
person that used to help me cash the money orders before that is my
former representative has moved to Germany with his family.

Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed in
your bank, deduct your 10% of the initial capital and forward the
balance to the company by money transfer. So all I need is to forward
your information to our numerous clients in the states or Canada and
they will contact you before they issue payment in form of money order
or cheques then send it via courier or mail to you. If accepted I will
need your full name, address and phone number so we can forward it to
our clients and they will start making payments to you as the company
representative in the states.

Part time Job Offer
My name is Mike Davies. I just came about your email address through an email listing affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce and I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you could earn a lot without quitting your present Job or having problem with your employers.

I am a man with 4 kids all boys and the love of my life, my wife. I am a some what multitalented man and I do quite a lot of traveling and get to meet quite a lot of people.
I just resigned my job as a research scientist for ARINI (Agricultural research Institute of Northern Ireland (www.arini.ac.uk)) but I still work as a freelance consultant for the institute which gives me very much time to do my own work which is basically being a freelance researcher who could be employed by research institutes to do research projects anywhere in the world.

I reside in Ireland, Dublin even though I have lived most of my life in other parts of the world, I am fully residing in Ireland. Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a research project in the tropical regions of West Africa regarding rare and vulnerable plant species and this would be commencing very soon.

However my funding was by my American counterparts who send me the bunch of payments mostly in US based money orders. Getting an accountant in the states or opening an account would have been my best choice but I have a deadline to meet and taking any of those choices would cost me time and a whole lot of other requirements. I am not ready to deal with, as I would be traveling a lot in the meantime.
So presently, assuming you would be able to deal with cash, I would be willing to employ you on contract basis to be my payment representative back in the states, this way I could issue and make payments in form of Money Orders, Cashier's Check, etc out to you, you could then cash them easily, withdraw 10% of the total amount on these payment instruments as your commission and then send the rest back to me through wire transfer.
Please, bear it in mind that we would be dealing with quite a handful of cash and you could be making up to $3000 just working with me in a short period of time within 2-4 weeks.
I would be glad if you accept my proposal and I intend to commence on starting as soon as you are ready. If you are interested, please email me back so we could make concluding arrangements.

Thank You

14 August 2006
On this date I received an email from William Anderson (President),Markanderson Textiles. Phone +441616605110 (London) or +358942597805 (Helsinki Outlet) stating the need for a "bookkeeper" in the states to receive money orders that are not negotiable out of the US from their customers. Further, deduct weekly pay after cashing the money orders at my bank and forward remaining funds to the company via MoneyGram or Western Union Money Transfer. The email address was from: wandersonuk1@yahoo.com.
IS IT SAFE TO ASSUME THIS IS SOME SORT OF SCAM???

I am a victim of the internet fraud done by a single lady who named herself Miss.Josvin Brown via e-pal club. This lady informed me that she works in a humanitarian organization that handles resettlement and employment, the organization of which is named The Global Resettlement Agency (GRA) For Refugee and Resettlement, located in California.
Throught this letter, i would like to warn everybody to be aware of this lady for not corresponding with her. She ususally sends her beautiful picture and begin acting her tricks. She was succesful to take my money for the amount of US$ 2.000.- by promising me to arranging my departure to USA, to live and to work there. But i realized later that it was only a fake tender. She dissapeared and i can not take my money back. Her name is still published in the e-pal club and i am sure she is still looking for another victims all over the world.
For your reference, her email address is : josvinbrw@yahoo.com. If you want to know how she looks for a victim, just try to send mail to her email address above and see how this lady tries to persuade and to trap you with her sweet words.
I have sent a letter to UNHCR and FBI reporting the interned fraud done by this monster lady, But i have not been receiving any response from them. This lady is still free to do her fraud activities. The staffs involved in the fake organization are : miss.Josvin Brown (organizer committee), James Frank(coordinator), madam Nancy Jeffrey(secretary) and David Benson (accountant) whom i send the fees required through Money Gram.
I wonder whether someone can help me to get my money back from Miss.Josvin Brown. Please send me advise. Thank you.
Regards,
yansi

Okay folks, I too have received emails of this nature. It started with a job posting on craigslist.com (USA). The so-called company is Surgimed (there is a Surgimed or Sergimed, but they do not make the products listed in the contract I rcvd) or the like and has the same scam concept as the others listed here. That is: 900.00 dollars a month and checks and money orders to be sent to me and deposited in my bank with 10% as my share! I was beginning to buy it! Then I decided to seek it out on the net, and voila. I even signed a contract! Me stupid guy, looking for money. So, I am glad I found this forum. The person claiming to be the company rep, used the name Alma Adams in the UK. Scams on the internet abound! These folks are creative. They should use thier smarts for something useful!!!!!

Isn't there anything that can be done about this woman? She just scammed me for $4000. Luckily I didn't spend the money I just deposited a counterfiet cashier's check into my bank account.

I am now repsonisble for this money according to my bank. I am going to contact a lawyer to see what my rights are and what can be done.
