Yes tyhis is a scam you received and not an actual business but part of the 419 NIGERIAN scam that is severly going on. Their money orders and checks are fraud and cashing them or depositing them you will be arrested on fraus and theft in federal Prision!!!
DONT acept anything from them AND YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND THE SAME EMAIL THAT YOU GOT IN THRU OUT THESE POSTINGS THAT OTHERS HAVE ALSO RECEIVED
Mark their email address as spam and report it to your email provider and to the government website I have posted in here before.

This is part of an e-mail I received. I need money badly, therefore I can not afford a scam. Is this a scam?

Here you have the description of this job in simple steps:



1. You agree and sign the contract, send us your full name and postal address.

2. In 4-5 days after you have agreed to work for us you will start to receive checks/money orders/cashier checks made on your name from our customers in U.S. and Canada. Our customers use hospital funds and the checks are always covered. The payments are made for our products and services which have already been delivered.

3. You cash the checks/money orders/cashier checks at your bank using your pre-established account.

4. You deduct the 10% commission from the total amount of the check or money order that you receive and cash.

5. You send the remaining 90% minus transfer fees to our company as per our instructions to one of our offices. We have offices in almost all of Europe; we will instruct you where to send the balance. This means that the funds will not always be sent to our headquarters in U.K. You will not make the transfer on our company name. One of our employees will be the receiver for the funds. The methods we use for transferring funds are: wire transfers, money transfers, checks and money orders. Depending on our needs we will instruct you to send the funds using one of those methods.

6. After one month has passed since you signed the contract you will receive your first salary.

IMED is a privately owned company founded in 1924. The business is based in London at the heart of the UK motorway network and has developed from its origins, producing surgical needles, into a major business servicing the global healthcare market.
Today, IMED is building on the company's strong tradition for product research and development and is developing into one of the UK's leading healthcare groups. The company has developed and markets products in the growing areas of sports medicine, spinal surgery and biomaterials and has an established international distribution base across Europe, America and the Far East.
We care to explain to you thoroughly the entire process that will possibly be the best job you will ever have. This job is possible because our company IMED has its headquarters in London, UK. As such we do not yet have stores or offices in the United States and Canada. Until we do we will always need representatives in the U.S. to take care of some financial matters. The problem we are facing is the time necessary for our company to clear the funds from checks, money orders and cashier checks paid by our customers from U.S. and Canada after they have received our products and/or services. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks including shipping to clear these checks in Europe. We need to clear the checks, money orders and cashier checks inside U.S. and then have the funds transferred to our company in U.K. by other means. This is where you can help us. It would speed up the process tenfold. We have already made a signed agreement with the U.S. officials and we are paying all the necessary taxes for our business. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part on the date you will receive your first salary. This job is official and legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today.
We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell our products. We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees and the whole amount on any check. This way you can feel absolutely protected and safe.

I got an email form Mike Perkins today. I was almost scammed by a "amanda garson" from the UK who wanted to purchase my wedding dress that I was selling online. Before I became wise, I went ahead with the transaction but luckily I did not deposit the money orders into my account. Instead I took them to the post office and told me they were fake. If you ever get U.S. Money orders, take them to the U.S. Post office first to verify. They can tell right off the back.

This is a scam company known for their fraud money orders most of them stolen and getting people in alot of trouble. In several of my posts from Hope listed below or on the next page I have put in the websites you need to contact to file claims ans what ever you do dont try to cash or deposit them or you will be facing federal charges againt you for fraud and theft charges which are very serious, they feel you are an accomplace to the fraud crime with these money orders. Be very careful and report what you received also to your local police. Many of us here have also received the same fraud email from the same companies

Unfortunalty I found this site too late. I also got the e-mail from Mike Perkins supposedly from IMED. IT IS FRAUD!! I got the first check, and put it into my bank for validation for 7 days. On the second day, my bank closed my account due to a fradulant check. The check had been stolen from someone in Texas. This has cost me a great deal of sorrow and the loss of my account with a great bank. PLEASE READ! DO NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING FROM MIKE PERKINS! This is what the e-mail will entail:

I recieved a package from tnt shipment from Bangkok with what is suppose to be 4250.00 dollars worth of money orders from Wal-Mart financial services.

A european wanting "help for his business" but it looks very suspicious to me. It seems pretty fraudulenmt to me and I will be returning the money orders or turn it in for evidence if necessary.

Hello, this is so wierd to me. Let me tell my story. It is really the same as every other story I was just ahead of the them. How it began: I recently put a ad on site www.roommates.com for roommate in(texas) and received a nice email from a lady in Britain or New England (not texas,but lied) . She claimed her father just pasted and she had a business that she had to continue and for rent she would provide free of charge if I would accpt money order payments. The (walmart Financial)money orders I recevied were from someone in Houston,TX with a unclear name on it. She also asked me to fill out a form for employment at her company. After it was all done, she was sent email tellig to never email me again with this organized criminal activity. Oh, yea this is being investigated. Final Word:Dont be Monkey Minded....Monkey See Money Do! For the LOVE of$$$$$$$$

I recieved an email asking me to be a repersentive/bookkeeper here in the US for a company out of the UK. It seemed to be legal. But I soon found out the hard way that it was not. I recieved 4 US money orders in the mail and when I went to cash them I was arrested. The man who sent the emails to me was named Greg Gorege Holdings. If anyone out there has been scammed by this person please let me know what to do. Hopeless and Helpless in Florida.

I went thruough careerbuilder, and I thought the job they told me in order for me to start recieving checks is to fill out my home information, sign the bottom of the agreement, and either scan the signature or take a photo of the signature in order for me to start recieving checks, I did email my address but never emailed a signed copy and I still recieved a check to be cashed and mailed to nec-star inc., so that is I feel this is definatley a fraudual situation to get you to cash a check from your back it then clears, but later on backfires on you. So I think this is a act of either identity theft or just trying to mess up your credit repore with your bank. So I advise everyone to be careful and also always check companies out through better business bureau (BBB) to see the status of the the suspicious company.


2006-06-21 00:58:06 -
I would like to know if your email that your company is looking for a person in the USA to help you do business is legit

Looking forward to hearing from you soon
