I received a job offer from surgimed company thru a person claim to be a rep. the job is to cash there money thru my bank account and deduct 10%, and send the rest of the money minus fees to people throughout EU, also $900 salary each month. a one year contract, they claim they will never ask for any SSNs or bank account etc. they just need the money. I think this is a scam, but is there an offical word on this?

BEWARE READ THIS. 8 14 2006

Received a reply to my Ebay auction as follows:
From: james olatian(codejoy4@yahoo.com
Dear Seller:
Thanks for getting back to me, i like this item that was why I clicked to buy it now and I hope you will sell it to me. But before anything I will like to ask a few question about this item.
1.What is the condition of the item
2 Do you accept (US Money Order) as your mode of payment
3. Do you accept and agree to wire any excess fund on the money order by Western Union after you deduct your item fees, Cos I don't have money order for the amount you are selling the item, the money order I have here with me is more than your item and I need to be honest with me and let me know how hones you are.
4. Do you agree I will make the pickup of the item cos I have account with DHL and UPS and here is the account Number.
5 Send me your name and adress and your phone #to put on the money order.

I told him what I preferred but if necessary it would be able to send the money order if nothing could be worked out to satisfaction.

He would not give me a an amount of the money order all though he says above he has it with him, he also would not give me the time it was mailed and a tracking number. He finally advised he did not have the amount as a client of his was mailing the money order. His address on ebay only gave an zip code A New York zip code and he wanted the items shipped to a Republic of Benin country and a phone number that did not answer. The day he bought the items he discontinued his ebay membership.
And it turned out the money order was a fraud.

Can anyone answer this question? Can I sue my bank for allowing me to cash a counterfeit cashier's check? I was a victim of the Susan Art World scam. However, I let the cashier's check stay in the bank for 4 days and they assured me that it cleared. Only after that did I make a withdrawal. Is is a waste of my time to pursue legal action against my bank?

I recieved 4 money orders for $850 a piece. I recall an e-mail from beth woodson, an artist... but i didn't reply. How could she have gotten my address to have these money orders sent to me? I do not know what to do with them now... burn them?
Please help me.

i received an email from monster.com relating to a company based in the uk ( surgimed international). To cash checks from their us clientele, send them 90% and keep the 10%....they would also send a paycheck every month and a 1099 form???

I was contacted over the phone by a company (North American Service Evaluators) that claimed to be a mystery shopping program. They sent me money orders, which I deposited in my bank account, and used the cash from that to pay for a moneygram to be sent to Canada. I was to be evaluating the moneygram service in Wal-Mart. I was supposed to pretend to send the money to a relative of mine residing in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. I did this. Later, I was contacted by my bank saying that the money orders were counterfeit and that the money had been subtracted from my account, causing the account to become overdrawn.

in
the U.S. but I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to

and
wire the rest back. It wouldnt cost you any amount,you will receive
payments(money orders) which will be sent to you via fedex
