Are any of you familiar with IMED or a Mike Perkins. I received a similar offer of 10% commission for working as an Independent Representative, and I have some serious concerns about possible impropriety here. Please respond at your earliest convenience. Thanks all!

I received this job offer request

Hello,

My name is Susan Bryant, I am an artist with my husband Tommy Bryant,We own
Susan ART WORLD in London(United Kingdom).

I do sell my art and painting to people all around the world mostly americans. I
am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works

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
in form of MONEY ORDER'S or TRAVLER'S CHEQUE,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.

All you need to do is to cash the payment deduct 10% and send the remaining 90%
vis Western Union Money Tranfer,All transfer fees will be deducted from
the 90% so you are rest assured that you wouldn't spend a dime out of your
personal money.
If you are interested, N: B, Please send to me the listed information below
to this email add (susartworlduk@aidiary.com)

#Your full name:....as it will be on Money Order

Ecobank Senegal (EBS),
(Agence Thiaroye)Thiaroye Branch .
Km 15 Route de Rufisque Senegal.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am so very sorry if I pried into your privacy.My name is Mrs.Samel Prosper,the Regional Manager of Ecobank Senegal,Thiaroye Branch Senegal.I am a Senegalese by birth,38 years of age,Single Mother of two children. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us. As the Regional Manager of this branch, it is my duty to send financial reports to my head office in the capital city of Dakar,Senegal.

On the course of the last year end of the year's report, I discovered that my branch made an over excess undiscovered fund of Four Million,Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars (US$4,500,000,00.) of which my head office is not aware of and will never be aware of it.

I have since then PLACED this fund in an ESCROW CALL ACCOUNT here without a beneficiary.

As the Regional Manager of this branch, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus, I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account.

I intend to part 40% of this fund to you while 60% shall be for me.I do need to assure you that there is no risk involved in this business it’s going to be a Bank-to-Bank transfer(TT).

All I need from you is to stand and present yourself as the original depositor of this fund in my branch. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response and then we shall discuss on how you will keep my share pending my arrival to your country.

With regards,
Mrs.Samel Prosper
Regional Manager
Ecobank,Thiaroye Branch Senegal(EBS).

My Good Friend,
I am so very sorry if I pried into your privacy but due to your honesty,I am convinced that you would be capable to provide me with a solution. I am Mr.Malick Diatta of MA Legal Consultancy Services, Dakar Senegal. I am writing on behalf of my late client Mrs. Andréa Eich, an American Citizen, a successful businesswoman base in Dakar Senegal who died unfortunately with her family (Her Husband and two kids) in an air mishap in July 2000.

I am contacting you simply to assist in claiming her deposited assets valued at US$13M before it gets confiscated by the Netherlands Bank. The Bank has written me as her consultant and issued a final notice to provide any of her relatives or have the assets channel to the Netherlands National Treasury as unclaimed fund within the next 5 working days.

Since there was no relatives or next of kin left in our record, I seek your consent to present you as her only surviving relative, so that this funds can be paid to you. Therefore, on receipt of your expression of interest (EOI),I have agreed that you will inherit 45% of this fund for your help and sincerity,45% for me while 10% for the refunds of processing expenses and to pay tax in your country(if any) upon successful confirmation of this funds in your bank account. Thereafter, all the related legal documents will be destroyed and we part ways.

My aim is to usher you in legally as her relative (since I have been unsuccessful in locating her relatives) so that the fruit of her labour will not be in vain. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.Please urgently reply if you can handle it.

Best Regards,
Mr.Malick Diatta

My name is COLE PETER and I am an artist.I saw your advert on the web for indicating that you needed part time employment. I live in United Kingdom, with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life. It is definitely a full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That gives me about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils. I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer. I have been selling my art works for the last 3 years and have had a lot of my works featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines.

Here is what i got from Susan Bryant after i emailed her or whoever back that this was a scam!

Dear Chris,

I want you to understand that i have been doing this business for some years now and As i am a family woman with my humble husband and beautiful kids, you would not expect someone in my calibar to want jeopardise the future of my loved ones with illegal or a con act .As a result, i want assure you that my customers payment is 100% for real.

However , i will not argue the fact that somepeople might be using my name or my company's name to perpetuate illegal act or scams but all this have been reported to the british police some long time ago and some culprits were detained and put to other then, but as of late i am not too sure that this is still going on. As a family person i understand your plight and i would not blaim you for your reactions but you just have to take things calm to understand what the problem is actually is.

Anyway, all i will tell you is that i am not part of any scam since i was born neither my husband is and the fact remains you have our money in your possession so i would implore you send as instructed.

People is this a scam or what, I am having my sis who works at a bank to check this money order out for me! ALWAYS SAY THIS TO YOURSELF, IF IT WAS THIS EASY EVERYONE IN THE WORLD WILL BE DOING THIS!


2006-06-27 11:38:02 -
Oh no! I cashed a check for "Imed" and sent it via electronic tranfer to the UK. My bank called (after I removed the funds--and after they had approved it) and said the check was counterfeit and that I am now responsible for the nearly $4000. How do I go about proving it was a scam so they reopen my bank account and take away the charge???


2006-06-27 10:43:55 -
Beware of internet scams wanting you to cash money orders and send the money overseas!


2006-06-26 19:58:46 -
Patrick
THIS IS A SCAM, DONT TRY TO CASH OR DEPOSIT OR SEND HER ANYTHING. This is part of the 419-NIGERAN scam. The money orders are fake or stolen and if you even attempt to cash or deposit them you will be facing federal charges against you of usually 5-10 years per money order for the first offense, this is a severe charge that will be placed against you, dont fall for it. Check my post from sunshine listing government agencies as well as make a police report against the scammer and read, read, read.


2006-06-26 19:52:18 -
Read in the FORUM author me Sunshine the post Government websites to file complaints and tell you what to do next
GUYS READ ALL THE PREVIOUS POSTS FROM ALL AND YOU WILL SEE THAT EVERONE OF YOUR EMAILS ARE ALL FRAUD, SCAM. Not one of these emails that anyone listed in the last 20 pages are from real business or lotteries you one or jobs that want you to receive money orders for them only those that are fraud with fraud money orders that people across the globe are facing federal prision for even tho they didnt know they were fraud, ALL EMAIL LOTTERIES ARE SCAMS ALL JOBS ASKING YOU TO RECEIVE THEIR MONEY ORDERS AND FOR YOU TO RECEIVE USUALLY 10% FOR YOUR PAYMENT AND THEN SEND THEM THE MONEY YOU CASH ARE ALL SCAMS FROM STOLEN OR FAKE MONEY ORDERS!!!
