ATTN:Cindy Hanson,

I am Barrister Anthony Kidjo,a solicitor at law, personal attorney to Engr. W. Hanson,a national of your country,who used to work with Shell development Company in Lome Togo. As the director of logistic and he is the principal owner and Director of WESTON SAL ETS. here in Lome-Togo with its branches at Accra in Ghana and Cotonou in Benin Republic.Herein after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2002, my client,his wife and their only daughter were involved in a car accident along Nouvissi express Road.

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to track his last name over the Internet,to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.

However,i contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$9.5Million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the SOCIETE GENERALE BANQUE . Where this huge amount were deposited. The said SOCIETE GENERALE BANQUE has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days.

Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Therefore , on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer.

I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Best regards.
Barr.Anthony Kidjo(Principal Attorney)

* This job takes only 1-3 hours per day

About the job:

We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products. You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a new market (being the US). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion.We have decided to deliver the products upfront, it's very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent. Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as it possible.Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United US without first registering the company name. Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of loosing the customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough,as international Checks or international transfer take about 21 working days for cash to be made

available.We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays*

Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process.

You are not involved in any sales. Our makes direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX).

The customer receives and checks the products. After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products.

About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified Checks and Money orders Or Bank Of America Transfer based on the amount involved.

We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem.

1. Receive payment from Customers

2. Cash Payment at your Bank

For example you've got 3000.00USD

you take your income: 210.00 USD

Send to us: 2790.00 USD

First month you will have 15-20 transactions on 3000.00-4000.00 USD

so you may calculate your income.

For example 10 transactions on 3000.00 USD gives you 2100.00 USD

Plus your basis monthly salary is 1000.00 USD

Total:3100.00 USD per month

After establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more.Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them

cashed in your bank or other Cashing Services.Deduct your weekly salary and forward the balance to the company via western union money transfer or money gramme money transfer We understand it is an unusual and incredible job position.

How's this for a scam!

You can now email me at: alfredvogts_arts101@yahoo.co.uk

Dear Sir/Madam,

Good day to you, my name is Alfred Vogts, I am an artist with my wife Susan Vogts, and we are the owner of PORTFOLIO ARTWORKS INC. I'm from London, United Kingdom with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my wife Susan Vogts. It is definitely a full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That gives me about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work are 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 3 years and have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines. I have MARKET all my art works & galleries to private companies in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) and other parts of the world.

I'm always facing serious difficulties when it comes to PAYMENTS, This is because most of my customers in AMERICA are always offering to pay me with U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHECK AND SOME PREFER TO TRANSFER PAYMENT THROUGH BANK OF AMERICA, And it is very difficult for me to cash U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE OR THE TRANSFER HERE in LONDON, This is Because The United Kingdom Government does not permit the usage of U.S POSTAL MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHECK OR THE TRANSFER HERE IN LONDON.

One mr. lyord williems jnr sent this to me:

Hello,


My name is Lyord Williams (JNR).,I live in LONDON,Uk with my wife and two kids and three dogs. I majored in business management and have been working in a small firm. The company produces various clothing materials,batiks,assorted fabrics and traditional costume for which we have clients companies that we supply weekly in the states. before the demise of my uncle, he was in the process of expanding into West Africa and the US. I am at the newly completed base in Africa right now and we have made such a large client base in the U.S. but I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling to Americans,they are always offering to pay with a US MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIERS CHECKS, which is difficult for me to cash here in the United Kingdom or Africa.


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 12% for every transaction made,This would in no way affect your present job or place of residence.This job requires someone who would help recieve payments from customers in the states and get them processed at U.S. banks. The requirements for this position are honesty,dedication and reliability.However arrangements are been put in place to set up an office in the states but for the time being the company needs a representative in the united states, who will be responsible for handling payments in the U.S.


These payments are in form of money orders and they would be made in your NAME, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and wire the rest back. It wouldnt cost you any amount,you will receive payments(money orders) which will be sent to you via FEDEX, UPS OR USPS from my business patners, you are then to cash it,deduct your 12% and send the remaining cash to me via western union money transfer. all western union charges will be deducted from the remaining monies before being sent.

"My name is Susan.B. Jester, I am an artist with my husband Jackson Jester,We own SUS 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 jackson Jester, etc." As you see, the smartass has changed her name.

In addition to thinking everyone is an idiot, she needs to study some geography. I do not live in the US. I live in South America (ha ha).

It is about time Interpol chased this crook and take her (or him...) out of the way for good.

I RECEIVED EMAIL FROM SUSAN BRYANT FROM SUSART WORLD IN LONDON. IS THERE SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO STOP PROLIFERATION WITH THIS KIND OF SCAM LETTER?


2006-04-20 00:44:10 -
I've been getting those too - all from places in the UK. I even got 2 from a "lawyer" wanting to give me money from a deceased's bank account:

"barrister lawyer"
Brian Smith Esq
Midland Bank London Branch
**Wanted personal info to make a person an heir to a large sum of money for a decedent's safety deposit box. Their claim is that he had no heirs. This one didn't even try to give an address for anything!

2 fake job offers - both wanting the same arrangement, for someone to handle the money for their US and Canadian clients. Sounds like money laundering to me - only changing fake money for real and stealing the person's identity to boot!!

HEAD OFFICE EQUITABLE PCI BANK TWR.
MKT AVENUE. COR.H.V DELA COSTA STR
PHILIPPINES.


Good day
Let me start by introducing myself, I am MRS. MARIA M. SOCORRO, CREDIT ACCOUNTS OFFICER EQUITABLE PCI BANK. I am writing you this letter based on
the latest development at my bank, which I will like to bring to your personal edification. I am writing you this letter with so much joy and excitement even though my heart goes out to the very powerful and
distinguished gentleman who I was fortunate to have worked for and extremely privileged to have known for numerous years. I am a top official in charge of client accounts in EQUITABLE PCI BANK inside the
Philippines.

In 2001, my client was going through a horrendous divorce in the United States Of America and was on the verge of losing most of his estate to his
vicious and diabolical wife. As a result of this alarming predicament, my client came to me with a very brilliant idea. He transferred some funds, ten million two hundred thousand dollars($10.2m) to a fixed deposit account in my bank under an alias which only the two of us knew about as the confidentiality of the matter was necessary for his protection.

Due to his untimely death in early 2002, the funds have been sitting in the account ever since and will continue to do so perpetually unless we do something about it. This is where you come in. I located you through an agency that helps seek people by their email. My client did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his
bank deposit.

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I would like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to our client so that you will be able to receive his funds. I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we can come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up
as the next of kin to my client.

All that is required from you at this stage is for you 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 file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.

The allocation of our money will be as follows: 20%($2.02m) to you for your part in this, 75% for me and my partners and 5% for any unforeseeable expenses we may incur. I think this is extremely fair, as you have nothing to lose but just a little time, while on the other hand I am staking my flawless reputation among other things.

And besides $2.02 million is no pocket change. Once you are approved, the entire transaction should take no longer than twelve business days after which we will go about our daily business, but just millions of dollars richer. As you can see this is easier than taking candy from a baby, but mind you, trust is something that is developed over time and that is something that we do not have.

So I have to let you know that it will highly unfeasible to try to run away with the money because even though only you can transfer money in and out of your account, the transfer can only be authorized by my department of which I happen to be the head. The money will be transferred from my bank to an account you will provide.

So please, there should be no room for greed because ten million two hundred thousand dollars can quench even the most insatiable desire for the almighty dollar. Again, I will be in charge of everything else. I will assume all responsibilities for this endeavor so you don't have to worry about any legal ramifications, just what you will do with all that
money.

Your urgent response is highly anticipated so please email me for more details on this transaction as soon as possible. This should be kept very secret and confidential? I believe you know.

If interested please reply to this email; mrsmaria22@yahoo.com.ph.

Kind regards,

MRS. MARIA M. SOCORRO

Hello Eva:

Call your local FBI office and ask for the Task Force on Internet Fraud and Abuse.

If there is a corporate name from which the Money order is drawn from call them to confirm the validity of the money orders.

However I can tell you right now that if you received emails like we have received emails that are posted on this site, I can assure you that the money orders are fake.

If you apply to one of these companies and agree to their terms then you are asking for trouble. All they want to do is to rip you off. All they want is your personal to drain you of your hard earned money that you worked so hard to get.

Another person writes:

Please people, STOP putting those fraudulent money orders in your bank accounts. It's going to cost you $20 to $35 on each one for a returned check fee. Some banks may even put YOU in JAIL for trying to cash them.

With any of these probable frauds, call up the bank listed or in the case of Wal Mart Financial money orders, call Wal Mart. They can tell you by the numbers on the check if they are valid. Most likely they will tell you it's NOT A VALID CHECK.

A Wells Fargo guy told me that it can take UPTO 6 weeks for a bad money order to finally clear as not valid. The Wells Fargo phone center is getting hundreds of calls per month on these fraudulent money orders.

Hello Ardith A. Richter:

You were right to have your suspicions all emails like the one you received are just scams. They prey on the unsuspecting, they look for us on the job boards and dangle employment opportunities like a carrot to a rabbit and expect us to respond to them wioth our personal informationa dn drain us of our integrity. Drain us of our hard earned money and turn us into accessory to fraud if we cash their phoney bank checks and money orders. None of what they say is real they just want to rip us off. Look over the whole website and look over all the comments below and you'll see warnings and sad stories of people going to jail or paying back huge sums of money.
