Hello,

My name is Susan Bryant, I am an artist with my husband Tommy

I have sold
in galleries and to private collectors from all around the world. I am
always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art
works to Americans, they are always offering to pay with MONEY ORDER,
which is difficult for me to cash here in London United Kingdom.

I am
looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA who will
be
working for me as a par time worker and i will be willing to pay
10%
for every transaction, which wouldn't affect your present state
of
work, someone who would help me receive payments from my customers
in
the states, I mean someone that is responsible and reliable,
because
the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very
expensive,
I am working on setting up a branch in the state, so for
now i need a
representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA who will
be handling the
payment aspect for our company.

These payments are
in MONEY ORDERS
and they wouldcome to you in your name if you are
willing to assist as
a representative, so all you need do is cash the
money order deduct
your percentage and WESTERN UNION Charges then wire
the rest back.

NOTE: All charges f the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER

This is obviously another scam...I have seen it under "wilcox fabrics and prints as well." I posted something on Craigslist so this is how they got my info.


My name is Larry Johnson(jnr).,I live in Western Africa with my wife and two kids and three dogs.
I majored in business management and have been working in a small firm till i recently inherited my late uncle's company WILCO FABRICS  AND PRINTS,a year ago.The company produces various clothing materials,batiks,assorted fabrics and traditional costume for which we have clients companies that we supply weekly in the states. before the demise of my uncle, he was in the process of expanding into London, UK and the US.I am at the newly completed base in Africa right now and we have made such a large client based in the U.S. but I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling to Americans,they are always offering to pay with a US MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIERS CHECKS, which is difficult for me to cash here in Africa or United Kingdom.
I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for me as a part-time worker and i will be willing to pay 10 % for every transaction made,This would in no way affect your present job or place of residence.This job requires someone who would help recieve payments from customers in the states and get them processed at U.S. banks. The requirements for this position are honesty,dedication and reliability.However arrangements are been put in place to set up an office in the states but for the time being the company needs a representative in the united states, who will be responsible for handling payments in the U.S. These payments are in form of money orders and they would be made in your name, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage 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
or usps from my business patners, you are then to cash it,deduct your 10% and send the remaining cash to us via western union money transfer. all western union charges will be deducted from the remaining monies before being sent. Kindly get back to us as soon as possible if you are interested in this job offer. further details will be communicated to you as regards your employment.

I received a money order from a guy named James McCulloch, The envelop that as sent with the money order had a postage stamp from China. I hope everyone will watch out for these fake money orders and I wish someone would setup some kind of task force to get these people off the internet. If I had the funding I would take the job

I forgot to say that I was nieve and filled out their employment application with all of my personal information. Should I be WORRIED????


2006-07-13 14:08:51 -
I received an e-mail from a Dzintra Vieps at ElFinancial who was wanting me to accept checks from people in the US, deduct my fee, and send the remainder of the money via Western Union to their office overseas. I went to the bank where the check was drawn off of, and cashed the check there. Thank God I did not use my own account. I then e-mailed the information to her. The second check came in, but when I tried to cash it, I was told that I needed to contact the account holder because there was something wrong. Then, when I went to e-mail her back, the e-mail came back undeliverable. I inquired to a Christian financial organization who had a representative in the same area. They had never heard of such a business, and said that it sounded illegal. I have not done anything else with them since.


2006-07-13 13:16:42 -
13 days later, after I emailed her like 13 days before asking her to give me her address and phone number, they dare to email me back with this! When will they stop?????
