I also have another company claiming to be a textile company. That check was fony. The check is for over $3000.00. If you get a check, do not deposit it before having your bank check it.

I have a package sent through UPS. I took the check to my bank drawn on Chase Bank. I first had by Bakn Officer run the check to check for fraud. It was no good. I still have the check.

First you receive email that you have won millions. The later email that they have that money for you in USD. The wait for you to take the bait. The person tells you to get in touch with another peron who informs you to send $600.00 dollars for shipping and handling of the bank draft. Well I am sure this is a v ery good scam and there is no telling how long they would try to milk this one. It is sad that there are people out there who think its okay to take advantage of the internet in such a evil way.

I've been contacted repeatedly by people posing as placement agencies, legitimate employers, recruiters, and independent headhunters. All of them have fanastic jobs they want me to interview for. Some of them want me to put up a bank account into which they can deposit money from overseas. In these instances, they aren't asking for much more than just an opening account so them must be after small sums.

Professional peopls in the United States have become weary and fed up with the public job boards like Monster.com, Dice.com, and especially CareerBuilder.com allowing these frauds to post their fictious "employement opportunities" when, in reality they're just phishing.

Can any thing be done about it so that our resumes and personal information stop winding up in the hands of these scoundrels posing as legitimate employers?

I have been receiving emails that I am going to receive a cashier's cheque for a considerable large sum of money. I feel that this is probably some kind of scam but how can I tell for sure.


2008-08-02 21:29:27 -
Be aware that Ron Micheal professes to be an engineer in Africa now and is returning. He claims to have falling in love with me immediately, however I think he is too romantic and full of you know what, but I am still IMing him we talk everyday, but he is not to be believed.There is some scam coming ,I know.

I'm selling paintings on CraigsList and I received an offer from "Barbara Hutchinson" of New Jersey, who is presently traveling in Australia. I never believed for a moment that the offer was genuine but I said, sure, go ahead and send me your money order.

"Barbara" barbarahut@live.com said she is sending me extra money to cover the cost of shipping. Turns out, I received two fake money orders each amounting to $950. The paintings start at just $300 and she could never tell me which one she wanted. She just kept referring to "the item." She clearly has no idea what she is buying.

The money orders, one filled out and one blank, arrived from Benin, in Africa. Far from both New Jersey and Australia. The stamps are pretty - I think I'll save those :)

The Barbara Hutchinson person deserves to be shot, of course. But it's also true that if somebody is so utterly stupid as to be tricked by such an incompetent thief then they almost deserve to have their money stolen.
