HELLO FIVE STAR BANK:

What company are the money orders drawn on? If it is Travelers Express, then call the Travelers to find out if the money order numbersd are real. More than likely they will tell you that are fake and that is no funds drawn on them. Be careful! Protect yourself, don't caskh them in until you are sure that they are real or you can held as acessory to fraud by the bank institution that you would cash them at.

HERE IS ANOTHER SCAM THAT IS NEW TO ME, SO BE CAREFUL!

Dear Friend,

I am Mr Xiao Gang,Bank Manager, Bank Of Overseas Chinese North Shyn Lin District, Taipei, Taiwan. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

On June 6, 1998, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr. Robert Rice made a Fixed Deposit of the sum of US$10,000,000.00 (Ten Million United States Dollars) which accumulated to the sum of US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million, United States Dollars for twelve calendar months in my branch.

I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr. Robert Rice died from an automobile accident(plane crash aongside with his wife Ann). On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Robert Rice did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$30,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of Republic of China,at the expiration of 7(seven) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Chinese Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.Robert Rice so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin.

We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address

above. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.


Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply

Thanks and regards,

Mr.Xiao Gang.

I just received this e-mail today and figured it was bogus, so I decided to check it out. I simply typed in "Susan's Art World" and up popped several warnings concerning this hoax. Your cite was the first, so when I saw this e-mail capability, I decided to include my story. Enclosed is the e-mail I received:

SUSAN'S ART WORLD INC.
OFFICE
34 Parliament Street,
York, YO18SG,UK

Email:
s_bryant014@msn.com
r_bryant04@msn.com
s_bryant0015@yahoo.com

Dear Friend,

My name is Susanna Bryant, I am an artist with my husband Richard Bryant,We own SUSAN'S ART WORLD in London(United Kingdom)I live in London United Kingdom, with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my husband Richard Bryant.

It is definitely a full house, I have been doing artwork since childhood that gives me about 25 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 art brush mixed with color pencils.

I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer, I have been selling my art for the last 4 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 artworks to Americans, they are always offering to pay with MONEY ORDER OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE, which is difficult for me to cash here in the UK.

I am looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA / CANADA who will be working for me as a par time worker and I will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction, which wouldn’t affect your present state of work, someone who would help me receive payments from my customers in these regions, I mean someone that is responsible and reliable, because the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive, long and tedious.

I am working on setting up a branch in the states, hence I need a representative in these regions to handle the payment aspect for our company.

These payments are in MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE and they would come to you in your name if you are willing to assist as a representative, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and send the balance via MoneyGram Money Trasfer as would be directed.

But the problem i have is trust, I have made arrangement with the FBI in Washington, that if anybody gets away with my money they will definately get hold with the person, you are to receive the funds which will be sent to you from my clients, they would come in form of a MONEY ORDER OR CASHIER'S CHEQUE as earlier mentioned, then you are to take it to your bank account to enable you cash it and send the money via MoneyGram Money Transfer.

NOTE: All charges of the will be deducted from the money you are to send via MoneyGram Money Transfer, so you are rest assured that you wouldn’t spend a dime out of your personal money.

If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as possible via Email:
s_bryant014@msn.com
r_bryant04@msn.com
s_bryant0015@yahoo.com

N.B: Please send to me the listed information below

#Your full name,
#Your full home address,
#Your age,
#Occupation
#marital status
#direct contact telephone number
I will be needing your home address, so that the MONEY ORDERS/CHEQUES can be sent to you via FedEx whenever we have payment.




Thanks for your assistance and God bless,

Susanna Bryant.
Director of SUSAN'S ART WORLD INC,
London, United Kingdom.

recieved a job offer from susart world,inc wanting me to accept US money orders and then cash them and wire money to them..I get every kind of scam there is out there and try and report each one..I never give out my personal info..thanks for this sight


2006-04-22 16:01:22 -
It is sad to say that ALL of these offers for employment and/or EXTRA CASH opportunities are
indeed FAKE, BOGUS, and MALICIOUS. I was
detained by my local police for trying to cash
one of the (5) US POSTAL MONEY ORDERS for $850 ea. Today, I received (3) more from WALMART FINANCIAL
SERVICES of MN for $925 ea. Even though, I could
surely use this so-called money, I am prohibited
from cashing any and all kinds of money orders and
cashiers' checks. As directed by the acting
police detective; all emails and corresponedence, as well as the actual checks received should be turned
over to your local police department for further
investigations.
***A MAN WHO WONT STAND WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING***
I have one question to everyone. Has your name ever appeared on anything sent to anyone else?


2006-04-22 05:13:01 -
Dear All, I have received this emial and also have replied to him, and now i am getting confused, as he is also one of the persons, doing scams in all over the world. What precautions should we take for these imposters.

This site is dedicated to helping others beat the scam emails people get from nefarious people who prey on people who are down and out in some cases, other who are looking for legitimate work. They track us down and try to lure us into thinking that what they are sending is legitimate work. They find us on the job boards like monster, careerbuilder and others. So we cut and paste the scam emails to warn others that these emails are fake designed only for one purpose and that is to steal our account information and personal inforamtion and totally rip us off.

Received an email from johnpayeart03@yahoo.com, also known as john_andrew@virgilio.it, noting that he was an artist in Bristol, United Kingdom. Said Americans paid him by money order for his work and it was difficult for him to cash money order in UK. Asked to send money orders to me, to cash, keep 10% and wire money to (2) attorneys. Received (5) money orders ea. $850 from a girl in CT, MO from a person in CA and wire to UK. All US postal mo, all fake. Received another (5) each $850 from PA - all us postal mo, all fake. And finally, a cashiers check in the thousands from Texas, also fake. Then received a call from a gentleman in another state, noting that he received (5) money orders each for $850. that had my name and address on them as the purchaser.
Not only is this John Andrew, or whoever he is, attempting to distribute and cash in on fake money orders, he is also stealing identities and making us part of his scam.
BE CAREFUL.
