How are you and I hope you are doing great and everything is okay with you and your family.I want to update you about the funds that are coming your
way.Please look out for the funds in your mail,as my client reconfirmed to me that he sent the package registered mail and if you do not receive the funds
today then you will get them in your mail by tomorow.Please let me know as soon as you get the package,which according to my client is containing travellers checks which you can easily cash out at your bank or at any check cashing place.

Well,aspa our previous understanding,you are to have the funds cashed immediately at your bank as soon as you receive the package,and then deduct your 10% commission.Your bank will cash the funds faster and they would have more cash on hands to take care of that,so i suggest you proceed immediately to your bank as soon as the funds get to you.Check cashing places too can do that albeit would ask for cashing fees,whichever is more convenient for you.

After deducting your 10% of the total funds,kindly have the remainder of the funds wired via western union international money transfer.You will have to wire the funds to the company's regional warehouse in Lagos,West Africa.The funds are needed for raw materials in our Lagos office right now.Raw materials are in large supply there at the moment and we need new stocks for the coming sales season.You are also,required to send the western union transfer from two different western union stores in two transactions,take note,so you just have to make the transfer in two equal transactions from two different western union stores,while all the relevant fees are deducted from our own part of the funds.I am providing the information for the western union transfer below.

Here is the info of the Manager of our Lagos office and i want you to have the funds wired in his name in two western union transactions.

NAME:DAVID BABS

ADDRESS:
22 PARKVIEW ESTATE
IKOYI-LAGOS
NIGERIA 2341

After you must have sent the money i would require you to send me the following information that you must have gathered at western union point,they are:

NAME AND ADDRESS OF SENDER

TEST QUESTION AND ANSWER

MONEY TRANSFER CONTROL NUMBER(MTCN) 10 DIGIT NUMBER TO BE

PROVIDED TO YOU BY WESTERN UNION

AMOUNT SENT.

I was made to understand that you are to pay some charges at western union point.Pls you can deduct the fees from the remainder of the funds after you must have deducted your 10% commission. Please if there is any other information that you require,pls do not hesitate to let me know.I would be hoping that you get this mail on time today so that you would probably get the funds sent out today.

I will be hoping to hear from you before the end of the day and thank you for your co operation and looking forward to working more with you.

Warmest Regards,


We have received the cheques and we see they are a scam. We are going to the police with them.

Please be careful. They are fakes.

It takes some research, first read the money order then type in your browser the bank name of the money order like this:WF National Bank fraud money orders, usually their is a posting thru out the web that someone else had the fake money orders. Most of the real money orders have a water mark on them, usually there is a phone number on the back of the money order, check the Payee company and search in your browser the company with fraud money orders, there are alot of them including USPS money orders, call the bank that issued the money order to verify your numbers on the money order and if you have trouble finding the bank listed this is a deffinate red flag that its a fake. 99.9% of the money orders are all fake, I havent heard of even one of them being real!!

I received and email from a Trini Williams of Tra Holdings, INC. company website www.praholdings.com. After two months of communication and advising this company that any attempt to defraud will be reported they sent me some money orders. These money orders are fake. The ones I received came from Walmart Financial Services but you can tell they have been copied right when you first look at them. The packaging had a North Dakota address but the money orders were purchased in Houston, Texas. I went to Wal-Mart and presented the money orders and they concurred they had been copied and Tra Holding or Pra holdings have been submitted to the FBI. Do not accept anything from this company they are a Fraud.

Hello,
How are you doing today? I hope all is well. Would you like to work online from home and get paid weekly ? ARTHALL ARTS & CRAFTS needs a book-keeper in the United States, so I want to know if you would like to work online from home and get paid weekly without leaving or affecting your present job? The company presently run an Arts Galleria in the UK and we need someone to work for the company as a representative/book keeper in the United States.

The company deals in the sales of Art and Craft works, sculptures and carvings, antique artifacts and produces various fabrics materials, batiks, assorted fabrics and various traditional costumes from all over the world and we have clients we supply weekly in the United States. Our clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of U.S. Money Order which are not readily cashable outside the United States, so we need someone in the United States to work as our representative and assist us in processing the payments from our clients and he/she would be paid a weekly salary.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS RECEIVE THIS PAYMENTS FROM OUR CLIENTS ON BEHALF OF OUR COMPANY IN THE UNITED STATES, GET IT CASHED IMMIDIATLY WITHOUT DEPOSITION THEN DEDUCT YOUR WEEKLY PAY AND FOWARD THE BALANCE TO THE COMPANY DOWN HERE VIA WESTERN UNION/MONEY GRAM MONEY TRANSFER.

Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed in your bank deduct your weekly salary and foward the balance to the company via western union/money gram money transfer. Basically what the Company is searching for is a Representative/Book-keeper in the States who wou ld help to establish a medium of getting our funds from our customers there. If you are interested in working with us we would be very glad as inability to get our Payment in cash has posed a big problem and has affected account reconciliation and turn over grossly.

These are legitimate transactions between our customers and our company Representative and there is no legal risk as these are payments for goods already bought and delievered. We are offering 10% of whatever amount it is that you cash per week as salary and subject to your satisfaction you will be given the oppurtunity to negotiate the mode by which we will pay for your services as our official Representative/Book-keeper in the States. The mode we would prefer would be instant deduction of your salary from the Amount before going ahead to send whatever is left back via Western Union/MoneyGram Money Transfer.

We are aware that you would be charged to have the money sent, whatever that would amount to is to be deducted from the balance of the funds after you must have deducted your salary.

Please if you are interested forward the following info:

1.) Full Names
2.) Home/Cell Phone number
3.) Full Home Address, City, State and Zip Code.
4.) GENDER
5.) MARITAL STATUS

I just received 5 fake Speedway Superamerica TravelerExpress Money Grams, each for $950 from the wonderful republic of Benin. Made out by Janet Grayl, address: 1624 Bleigh Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19152. They are terrible quality, very obvious... checked the address and it looks like a baseball field at a school. So, folks, if this helps you avoid a financial loss, great. It was a "I want to rent your room, please let me send extra money and put it in your account, and send me a money gram" scam.

Be careful out there... :0) -ed

I have received two money orders from someone for an item I was to ship. Of course I check it all out before I send the items. The money orders were drawn on the WF National Bank, in South Central Faribault, MN. I have not and will not send my goods as I believe this is a scam.
