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.

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.
Regards,
Beth Woodson.

I received the e-mail from Mike Perkins from IMED who told me the checks would range from $500 - $3000, than the third check (which I haven't even cashed the first one) was over $3000. Do they think Americans are stupid or what? I haven't turned the checks over yet, because I don't know who I should contact. When I e-mailed Mike back stating I wasn't cashing the checks he threated me with lawsuit. It's sad to know what some people will do in this world.


2006-06-01 12:59:01 -
Thank you so much for this site... I just recieved the email from Mike Perkins, IMED. I tried looking him up on the internet but found nothing. I then typed in the fax # into google and this site came up.. I am so tired of people trying to scam you would think the gov't could do something about this. OH Well they say if it is quick money it is normally trick money. EVERYONE have a good day.

was contacted by a lady named beth woodson.i was in costa rica at the time and she said that if i cashed US postal money orders i would only have to send her 80% of it.so i got $3800 in postal money orders and the post office said it was fake.as they were 4 of them and i only brought the post office once,i can show everyone what they look like.the web sight was called digitalgoo.com which is now not working.she also has other sights and email addresses.i should have figured out because i recieved a explaination like this when i had asked why the money orders from maryland were coming from benin.so what i think is going on is that the scammers from benin send out postal money orders that are fake hoping that some of them go through,and if they do they get some of their money sent to a guy in london
