I got and email from Mike Perkins from IMED and after reading the messages posted here I proceeded with caution.

When the 1st check arrived I asked my back to put an extended hold on it to see if it was genuine. This process takes 11 working days, during which I did not draw on the moneies in my account.

I got 2 emails from Mike asking what the hold up was but I said I was not sending any thing until the check fully cleared. He said OK and email him when I had the money in hand.

Today I got notice from my bank that the check was being returned. Thank god for this website, I have lost nothing and luckily I still have my good relationship with my bank.

DONT SEND ANY OF YOUR OWN MONEY UNLESS THE CHECKS/MONEY ORDERS COMPLETELY CLEAR (11 BUSINESS DAYS). BY WHICH YOU WILL KNOW THEY ARE SCAMMERS.

I am Beth Woodson, an artist. I live in United Kingdom, with my
children and also the love of my life my husband. It is definitely a
full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That
gives me about 26 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 for the last 5 to 6 years and have had my work featured on trading
cards, prints and in magazines. 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 a US POSTAL MONEY ORDER, which is
difficult for me to cash here in 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, which
would not 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, cause the cost of coming to the States and
getting payments is very expensive, I am working on setting up a branch
in the States.
So i need a representative in the United States who will
be handling the payment aspect for now. These payments are in Money
Order and they would come to you in your name, so all you need do is
cash the Money Order deduct your percentage and wire the rest to the U.
K for me. But the problem i have is trust, i have my way of getting
anyone that gets away with our money, i mean the FBI branch in
Washington gets involved. It would not cost you any amount, you are to
receive payments, which will be sent to you by Fedex or Usps from my
business patners, which would come in form of a Money Order, then you
are to cash it and send the cash to me via Western Union Money Transfer
or Money gram Money Transfer. All transfer fees should be deducted from
the money to be sent to me to the U.K.

Beth Woodson.

Imed and Northern Financial are fraud companies. The companies may be real but the payment processor representive position is a fake. These are stolen checks and fake money orders. Don't get in trouble. I checked them out with the FBI first and I'm glad I did.

This is the version I got:
Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope this mail doesn't come to you as an
embarrassment as i receive unsolicited mails sometimes,if it does
kindly delete it and accept my apology. The truth about it is that many
individuals have failed to understand the use for which the Internet is
set for us to benefit, and therefore some abuse the privilege it is
meant to bring to all.

If i may ask,would you like to work online from
home and get paid weekly?

Mark Anderson Textiles needs a bookkeeper in
the state, so I want to
know if you will like to work online from home
and get paid weekly without leaving or affecting your present job? It's
just that I presently run a textile and fabrics firm I inherited from
my late Dad here in the London UK and we need someone to work for the
company as a representative/book keeper in the states.
My company
produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted fabrics and
traditional costume, which we have clients we supply weekly in the
states.
My clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of
Money
Orders, which are not readily cashable outside the United States,
so we need someone in the States to work as our representative and
assist us in processing the payments from our clients and I will pay
him weekly salary.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS RECEIVE THIS PAYMENTS FROM
OUR CLIENTS IN THE STATES IN FORM OF MONEY ORDER AND THEN GET IT CASHED
IN YOUR BANK THEN DEDUCT YOUR WEEKLY PAY AND FOWARD THE BALANCE TO THE
COMPANY DOWN HERE VIA MONEYGRAM OR WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER.

Our
payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed in
your bank deduct your weekly salary and forward the balance to the
company via MoneyGram or Western Union Money Transfer.

I await your
response.

Warm Regards,
John Anderson(President)

My dear friend
How are you today?
It's been long I heard from you. Well, I just want to use this medium to thank
you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving the
funds,without any positive outcome. I am obliged to inform you that I have
succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from Paraguay.
Everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the Lady
accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and she
rendered a tremendous help to us. My new partner initiated this idea and
everything worked out successfully.In appreciation of your earlier assistance
to me in
receiving the Funds.

I have decided to compensate you with the sum of $800,000 in a Cashier's cheque
(Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars). This is from my own share. I
did this simply to show you that it
is good to do good things to the right people always.
Presently, I am in Paraguay for investment project with my own share under the
advice of my partner. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts
to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us somehow. I
will be sending you e-mail from time to time to know if you have received your
share or not.
Now contact my personal assistant in Benin Mr Adrien Joshua his e-mail address
is (adrienjoshua300@yahoo.com) .
Please do let me know immediately if you receive it so that
we can share the joy together after all the suffering at that time. In the
moment, I am very busy here in Paraguay because of the investment projects,
which the new partner and I are having at hand. So feel free to get in touch
with young Adrien to send the cheque to you without any delay.

With My Best Regards,
Barrister George williams Esq

This is deffinately a scam, THE money orders they send you are fraud, read all the below post and read in the Forum abut all the money order scams!! Also read my posts on who to contact in the government and what to do in the forum from Sunshine. Definately mark his email address as spam to your email provider to block him.
L Brown
Sus Art World is also a big scammer, read the below posts and stories, this same email scam has swept the globe scamming people as their money orders are all frauds.
I'm sick of all the scams too, the more we all report to our government all the email scams we receive will be our governments deciding point on how to stop them, but if we dont report them, they will do nothing to stop them and it will get worse. It is our government who is already aware of the scams, and the more we report the more they will increase to stop them, so report,report,report!!!

I have been reading alot of comments re TRA Holdings (SUS Art World). The letters are all worded exactly the same. Thank God for this site...it's too bad these predators prey on people like me and others. I'll stick to my low wage job anyday. I intend to email Mr. Troy Adams or whatever his name is and let him know I'm on to him. Where can I submit all the emails I've saved from him? He shouldn't get away with this.


2006-06-14 10:20:19 -
Was sent an e-mail asking me to send my name, e-mail address, etc. to help cash checks and mail money orders to "Sus Art World". I'm sick of people trying to rip off other people rather than getting out and working for an honest living.

I don't know how I get this junk, but I wish someone could put an end to it all!


2006-06-14 10:11:24 -
I have been contacted via email from a person who stated that he was an artist who has supposedly had his art published. He states that his US customers pay via Money orders and that he can't cash MO's in the UK. He is seeking a rep to cash the Money orders here in the US and take 10% for their trouble and wire the balance to him.


2006-06-14 01:08:30 -
Ok, I found alot of Postal money order scams! Go to www.usps.com/postalinspectors/moalert.htm and click all the links in it, it will show you real and fake postal money orders and what to look for on them, especially read "postal money order scam alert". If yours are fake you can report it to youe local Postal inspector and they will tell you what to do.


2006-06-14 00:36:40 -
Also you can check with the postal service if they are postal money orders they will be able to tell you if they are real or not. They have a certain water mark on their money orders, explain to them where they were sent from so they will completely check the money order for you. their web site is:
www.usps.com or you can go to your towns postal service. Be very cautious for yourself and completly check these money orders before you do anything with them.

Marcus
99.9% of ANY Money order requests, lotteries,jobs, sick people looking for someone to cash there money orders from AFRICIA are all fake money orders, bank drafts. There are 47,000 nigerian gangs in africia alone and thru out spain, UK, London, the same scams are going on. They purchase these fake money orders on line from crooked companies.
To check if your money orders are real or not, type in the bank listed on the money orders in your browser and look for scam alerts, or type in who the drawer/purchaser is and do the same as above, check the back of the money orders and look for info from the susposed company who issued these money orders and research them on the web, but WHAT EVER YOU DO DONT CASH THEM AND SEND THE MONEY TO THEM OR DEPOSIT THEM IN YOUR BANK OR YOU WILL BE LIABLE FOR THE VALUE OF THE MONEY ORDERS WHEN THEY ARE FOUND TO BE FAKE AND YOU WILL BE ARRESTED FOR FRAUD AND FORGERY CHARGES IN FEDERAL PRISION!!Please read the posts in the Forum, I have listed who you should then contact and do when you find they are fakes, and you will, under Sunshines posts. anddont have anything to do with who scammed you with these as they dont care that you would of probably served 10-15 years in federal prision for them!


2006-06-13 16:58:28 -
