I have been notified by three separate companies looking for account/bookkeepers in the United States. I have had experiences in the past and I currently have contacts here in the U.S. with the FBI and this certain person in Las Vegas, NV is being investigated and most likely will be improsoned for fraud and embezelment. I need to know if these compaies are real or not. I do not want any kind of trouble out of this, but I do work from home doing this work for various people on line. I was looking for some help on finding out if it's on the up and up.

I just received 5,000 from Miles_Davis@hotmail.com for me to cash them. I made a mistake last week to a
"future" roommate and I lost 3,400.00 because her mother was dying of cancer and I fell for it.
We have to be careful and do not trust anyone but yourself.

I recently receive 3,400 from Minnesota and the the woman who sent the money orders was really a man from England. This scam was done thru Roommates.com. I was talking to this person for a while so I felt that I knew her real well. She sounded very educated and well spoken. She advised me she was paying rent so I could hold her room in my home. She then contacted me with an emergency saying that her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and that her destiny was in my hands. She begged me to cash the money order and send them Western Union so that her mother could get an Operation. I felt so bad for her that I cashed them and wired her the money. Come to find out the money orders were fake. I now owe the bank 3400.00 and there is no one that can help me. I live in Florida and if anyone reads this and can help me recover my money or know who I can talk to or if we can all join together to find out how to put a stop to this please contact me by e-mail. Thank you so much

I was sent 2 fake money orders from a person who used Wal Mart Financial Services payable thru WF National Bank in South Central Fairbault, MN. The authorities now have them and are checking on them for me. It is a scam, so watch out for this. If you get these, contact your local law enforment agencies.

HERE IS ANOTHER ONE THAT IS NEW TO ME:


иΤ穝筿秎

瞷筿秎倒иchen009guangyuan@yahoo.com.hk

FROM: MR.CHEN GUANGYUAN

Bank of China (Hongkong)

Eastern Commercial Centre,

393-407 Hennessy Road,

Wan Chai,

Hong Kong.


(chenx1guangyuan@yahoo.com.hk)


Good Day,


It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive because you do not know me but I have a lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to share with you.

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Chen Guangyuan operations manager of the Bank of China (Hongkong), Eastern Commercial Centre, Wan Chai Branch. I have a obscured business suggestion for you.


Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Hamadi Hashem who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 24 calendar months, with a value of Seventeen million three Hundred Thousand United State Dollars (US$17,300,000.00) only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war early last year. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that Hamadi Hashem and his family had been killed during the war in bomb blast that hit their home at Mukaradeeb.


http://www.iraqmemorialwall.org/iraqicasualties.html


http://www.iraqbodycount.net/names.htm


After further investigation it was also discovered that Hamadi Hashem did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Seventeen million three Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration six {6} years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Hamadi Hashem so that you will be able to receive his funds.


MODALITIES:


I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Hamadi Hashem, all that is required from you is to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favour for the movement of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. We are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents in your favour.There are a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking. There is no risk involved at all in this matter, I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is for you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you into the center of relevance in my life.


Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 70% for me, 30% for you but this can be subjected to further negotiations. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Please observe this instruction religiously.


Should you be interested please send me your,


1. Full names,

2. Private phone number,

3. Current residential address,

And I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below:


(chenx1guangyuan@yahoo.com.hk)

And finally after that I shall furnish you with more information about this operation.


Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.


Kind Regards

Mr.Chen Guangyuan

hERE IS ANOTHER ONE THAT IS NEW TO ME:

我有一个新的电邮地址了!

您现在可以发电子邮件给我到:wilsimon212@yahoo.com.cn

Dear beloved

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for

me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.

My name is william simon I a merchant of

Omani nationality.

I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer .

It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now

I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I

never really cared for anyone(not even myself)but my

business. Though I am very rich, I was never

generous, I was always hostile to people and only

focused on my business as that was the only thing I

cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know

that there is more to life than just wanting to have

or make all the money in the world.

I believe when God gives me a second chance to come

to this world I would live my life a different way

from how I have lived it. Now that God has called

me, I have willed and given most of my property

and assets to my immediate and extended family

members as well as a few close friends.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul

so, I have decided to give alms to charity

organizations, as I want this to be one of the last

good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed

money to some charity organizations in the Oman,

Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has

deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself

anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one

of my accounts and distribute the money which I have

there to charity organization in Bulgaria and

Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to

themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as

they seem not to be contended with what I have left

for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the

huge cash deposit of eighteen million dollars

18,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security Company

abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit

and dispatche it to charity organizations.

I have set aside 20% for you and for your time.

God be with you.
