I just got this e-mail below today. I responded that I am interested and wanted more info. Then I found this web page with all your warnings. THANK YOU!! I WILL NOT FALL FOR THIS.

British Knights & Fabrics Company
Contact Phone: 44-704-011-6096
Email: davidmark422@yahoo.com.hk


How are you,My name is David Mark and I own a company that sells Chinese
and African textile and fabric material in London,I am looking for a
trustworthy representative in USA /Canada that can help as a link between
me and my client over there.i would like to know if you are interested to
work from home for us BRITISH KNIGHTS & FABRICS COMPANY needs a
book-keeper or representative in the states,so I want to know if you will
like to work on line from home and gettingpaid weekly without leaving or
affecting your present job? I presently run a textile and fabrics firm in
London and we need someone to work for the company as a
representative/book keeper in Canada/USA.

My company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted fabrics
and traditional costumes.We have clients we supply weekly in the states
and myclients make payments for our supplies every week in form of money
orders or cashiers check which are not readily cashable outside the US or
Canada,so we need someone in the States/Canada to work as our
representative and assist us in processing the payments from our clients
and I will pay him/her a weekly wage, by percentage.

All you need to do is receive this payment from our clients in the States
or Canada and get it cashed in your bank or a cashing center then deduct
your 10% and forward the balance to the company down here via moneygram or
western union money transfer.The main reason why the funds cannot be
cashed down here is that it would take 20-24 days for a a US money order
to pass through the bank here an d that would tie down my capital and not
make business move fast as i expected,but a US money order presented to
the bank in the US would clear tops withing 48hrs and the person that used
to help me cash the money orders before that is my former representative
has moved to Germany with his family.

Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed in
your bank, deduct your 10% of the initial capital and forward the balance
to the company by money transfer.

So all I need is to forward your information to our numerous clients in
the states or Canada and they will contact you before they issue payment
in form of money order or cheques then send it via courier or mail to you.

If accepted I will need your full name, address and phone number so we can
forward it to our clients and they will start making payments to you as
the company representative in the states.

Thanks and I await your sooner response.

David Mark

I have been internet scammed when offered a job working at home, They send me money orders from Wal*Mart Financial Services and it also states "Payable Thru WF National Bank South Central Faribault, MN. I had made copies of all interactive documents and all money orders that were send back to me from my bank, stating "PAYMENT STOPPED, counterfeit" I lost $5,550.00 plus my credit is ruined. I cannot deposit checks nor have any credits from any banks. I would like to help solve any problems so that we can get the person responsible from this fraud transaction. Please e-mail me back. Awaiting for your response.

Greetings to you,
My name is Princess Mary Nicholas . I am an artist, practicing with my husband Mr.Fred Nicholas, here in the United Kingdom. We own the SUS ART WORK INC., here in London, (United Kingdom). I live in London United Kingdom, with my two kids, two cats, one pet dog and the love of my life, my husband.
It is undeniably a full house that we keep. I have been doing my artwork since I was a small child, which makes it about 23 years of experience for me in the field.
I majored in fine and creative art in high school and in the college I professionalised in the art courses in the advance levels. Most of my works are done in either pencil or art brush mixed with color pencils.
I have recently added designing and creative artwork on the computer, and I have been selling my art works for the past 3 years to my prestigious customers from all over the world.
Also, I have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and magazines, I have sold in galleries and to private collectors from all over the world, but I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans. I have bigger customers from the Americans but most of my America customers mostly offer to pay me with TRAVELERS CHECK or MONEY ORDER or CASHIER'S CHECK, which is difficult for me to redeem into its cash equivalence here in London, United Kingdom.
My main reason for sending you this email is that I am looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
I am looking for someone who will be working for me, and with me, as a par time worker and I will be willing to pay 15% for every transaction the person assists me in making.
Following your antecedent from the Internet, I decided that you should assist me in handling this situation. I decided upon you because my confidence reposed on you as someone that is responsible and reliable.
Presently, I am working on setting up a branch in the states so, for now, I need a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA who will be handling the payment aspect for our company.
The work you would be doing for me would not have to affect your present business or work. The work I would like you to do for me is simply to receive from me the TRAVELERS CHECK or MONEY ORDER or CASHIERS CHECK that my customers are paying me with. Because the cost of coming to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA constantly to redeem this payments is becoming too expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient for me.
When you receive the check payments from our customers or my secretary through the postal service, I would like you to cash the checks for me as soon as you receive them.
So when you cash the check, I would like you to subtract your 15% and the transfer charges and send the balance to my cashier in the United Kingdom through Western Union Money Transfer.
however, the problem I have is trust. And as a result of that, all i just need from you is your word of trust that thing will be fine.
PAYMENT WOULD BE SENT TO YOU THROUGH A TRUSTED POSTAL SERVICE AGENT. AND AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE THEM I WOULD LIKE YOU TO IMMEDIATELY CONTACT ME, SO THAT I WOULD DIRECT YOU ON WHAT TO DO WITH IT AND HOW TO GET THE BALANCE TRANSFERRED TO MY CASHIER IN THE UNITED KINGDOM.

NOTE: All charges of the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER will be deducted from my total sum, so you are rest assured that you wouldnt spend a CENT out of your own personal money. You just have to deduct your interest and send the balance to my cashier for accounting and bookkeeping.
If you are interested in assisting me in this venture pending when our branch would be ready in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA for us to work closely together, please kindly get back to me immediately via this my mailbox. :
marm3579@yahoo.co.uk

P.S, Please send to me the listed information below:
1. Your Name in Full
2. Your Full Contact Address
3. Your Occupation
4. Your Age
5. Your Marital Status
6. Your Direct Phone Number and Fax Number
I eagerly await your prompt response,I appreciate your fervent dedication and your decision to assist me.
Pls all response should be sent to my private email :
marm3579@yahoo.co.uk
Thanks for your assistant and may God bless and replenish you and your family, for your anticipated dedication,
Director of SUS ART WORK INC,
London, United Kingdom.

I recently fell for a scam for Wamco Textiles offering $4000 a week or more to send money orders to Africa and some other stuff....I didn't give an address but I just graduated for fashion/design and have posted myself on many job sites and recently did a textile internship so i figured it was for real but I was skeptical so after I emailed my phone number and my name I looked it up and found it was a scam!! So now I'm going to go and block that person from my email and send them a message saying dont f*&% with me! Boy, do I feel stupid, I'm just glad all they have is my name and cell phone number and not my address!

It appeas that i have been a victim by the humanitarian organization named Global Resettlement Agency (GRA) for Refugee and Employment which is located at 1452 Harrison St.Oakland CA 94612 California, United States,telefax : +1-4842317661.
The above organization offered me to live and to work in the United State through Miss.Josvin Brown who is registered her name in the e-penpal club. During my participation i have paid by means of Money Gram the following fees :
1.Regsitration fee = $US 150
2.Labour Form and Medical Certificate = $US 450
3.Deposit and Anti Terrorist Form = $US 1.300
4.Ticket Voucher = $US 570 (not yet paid)
having paid all the above fees charged,they do not want to send me the package containing everything of my departure because i failed to pay the ticket voucher.
I then cancelled my participation and requested them to send my money back, but up to now i have never been receiving any news from them.
I noted the 4 staffs involved in the said organization are as follows :
1.Miss.Josvin Brown
2.James Frank
3.Nancy Jeffrey
4.David Benson-accountant
This Miss.Josvin Brown always changes her address and her family name. I suggest you to contact him and see how she promote the organization and her temptation in her effort to look for another victim.
The fraud activities of this fake organization through Miss.Josvin Brown should be combatted to prevent the next victim.
I warn everyone to be cautious with the above name.
Thank you.

I got an email supposedly from a man named Terry Williams in the UK, who offered a deal to work from home for a London based fabric and textile company (Wilcox). "Receive the money orders not readily cashable in the UK, and deposit them in your acct, take your salary out and post the rest to the company". I've read that if an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is....And I live in the US, and don't see how much help I would be (other than to give some fraudulent company access to my account).
I performed a search under the given name "Wilcox fabrics and Prints, and this internet fraud page popped up.
It didn't help matters any that I got 2 identical emails from this person...if it's a real person at all.
