i recieved this in my email i almost fell for this thanks to you guys i new better thanks for all that you have done


My name is Susan Bryant,I am an artist with my husband James Bryant,We own Sussan Art World in London(United Kingdon) I live in London United Kingdom,with my two kids,four cats, one dog and the love of my life my husband (James Bryant). 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 is 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 sold in galleries and to private collectors from all around the world. I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans,they are always offering to pay with MONEY ORDER OR CASHER'S CHEUQES,which is difficult for me to cash here in London United Kingdom.

I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for me as a partime worker and i will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction,which would'nt affect your present state of work,someone who would help me recieve payments from my customers in the states, i mean someone that is responsible and reliable,because the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive,i am working on setting up a branch in the state,so for now i need a representative in the united state who will be handling the payment aspect for our company.

These payments are in money order or casher's cheuqes and they would come to you in your name if you are willing to assist as a representative, so all you need to do is cash the money order, deduct your percentage and Western Union Charges then wire the rest back .

The problem i have is trust,but i have my way of getting anyone that gets away with our money,i mean the F.B.I branch in Washington gets involve It wouldnt cost you any amount,you are to receive payments which will be sent to you by fedex or ups from my business patners, which would come in form of a money order then u are to cash it and send the cash to me via Western Union or Money Gram.

NOTE:All charges will be deducted from the money so you are rest assured that you would'nt send a dime out of your personal money.
If you are interested,please get back to me by sending the following:

1.Full Name
2.Home Address
3.Mobile and Home Phone Number
4.0ccupation

I work at a bank do not cash any of these money orders or checks that you are getting they are all counterfit


2006-03-31 20:41:13 -
I just wanted to let everyone know I also received an e-mail from WAMCO TEXTILE INDUSTRIES.It was similar to the one shown here. I gave them my name and address and other information--then thought twice. I have not heard from them in over a week, so I closed my bank account number and am reporting them to the authorities here.

TO: FRANK MARKS:

Frank you were wise to ask about the emails that you have been receiveing. There is nothing legitimate about SUS ART WORLD INC. and it also goes by another name now called PORTFOLIOARTWORKS INC. ALL these emails are fraud and scams designed for one purpose only: TO RIP US OFF!

The money orders are fake, the whole process they claim in their email is a scam. Hopefully you are just asking and haven't done anything yet.

Look over the whole site check out some of the emails that are posted, look at some the stories people wote here some of them were taken for ride and it wasn't to the bank. It was almost to the poor farm.


2006-03-31 14:48:49 -
Another thing about these fake money orders which I discovered was a problem when I was selling something online. Never ship your item before you receive payment. Always take the cashiers checks to the bank they are drawn from. They can tell you right away if they are real or not I received some from Washington Mutual and from the US Postal Service. Dont send any money until you are sure that the checks have cleared banks will hold you responsible for the balance of the fake checks. There is nothing that the law enforcement can do at this time about these scams so we need to do our best to not get fooled.


2006-03-31 14:41:35 -
I have recently been contacted by someone asking me to act as Mr. George Brumley Jr's next of kin. And gave me the information to contact the bank.


2006-03-31 11:28:19 -
I received a e-mail from SUS ART WORLD INC., wanting me to be their U.S. representative for money transactions, in the states. Is this company legitamit or not? This is not the only people that have sent me e-mails of proposals to be their U.S. representative. I get quite a few from Nigeria.


2006-03-30 17:39:37 -
yes i am upset not with theses scams thes people send u but with myself because i consider myself street smart. and they allmost got me but i beleive there must be a higher power that stoped me from cashing these fake money orders because if i didnt come to this site i would of cashed them it just shows that u can be street smart savi but when it comes to being on the internet its a whole different world out there
im in my fortys and this is my first home coputer that is mine and yes i type with 1 finger and maybe even might be a little il lierate to being on this computer if u dont do a little research into these types of fraud your screwed so to all u people that created this site thank u very much

To Justin:

Please do not duped into thinking that anything that was written in the email you received was real. It is a total scam designed to rip the person off who gets involved with their schemes. The money orders are fake, the whole process they claim in their email is a scam. Hopefully you are just asking and haven't done anything yet.

Look over the whole site check out some of the emails that are posted, look at some the stories people wote here some of them were taken for ride and it wasn't to the bank. it was almost to the poor farm.

I have a new email address!

Hello


I am Emeka E. Enyinnia a Banker in one of the leading Commercial Banks here in Nigeria. I contacted you based on a mutual business transaction that I would want us to handle in confidence and hope you can understand the need for us to do this and for you to stand in for it.


One Mr.Morgan Hanson and his wife. died in a ghastly motor accident while on a business trip on the 24th of August 2002.The said couple had no children and was about 63years old before their death. He never identified with anybody as his relative and investigation made could not trace any relative to the late couple.


Before his death, he has the sum of $12,755,889.00 usd made from contracts he executed with Oil Companies here in Nigeria and the proceeds are with our Commercial Bank.


Few weeks ago, the Bank tried requesting that the next of KIN to the deceased should come up to claim his fund deposited with our Bank. I am the Manager in charge of unclaimed funds hence my contacting you to stand in as the next of Kin. After much effort made to locate any of their relation failed, I decided to contact you as to have you stand in as the next of KIN to claim the fund so that the bank will not declare the account dormant,freeze or confiscate the amount as they stated in the letter sent to my Department.


If you can stand in, I assure you that this is risk free as I will advise you on what to do to have this fund moved to your account and we can agree on terms of sharing.


As soon as we make application, obtain the necessary approval, the money will be paid through here or any of the banks payment centre overseas.


This will take us about 10 working days to conclude depending on how you respond to our correspondence If you are willing to stand in as the next of Kin,send to me your full names, telephone numbers for us to discuss and to brief you on the procedure that has to be taken to have this transaction concluded within a short period of time.


Note that we will have to reach an agreement on the sharing of the fund as you have to agree to give me my own share as soon as you receive the money to your account.


I look forward to hearing from you.


Respectfully,

Mr. Emeka E. Enyinnia

This is a word to the wise:

Like other job seekers I posted my resume on the job search engines like Monster, CareerBuilder and so on. I like several of you have received these email scams and they almost look legitimate. However I took the extra time to search the truthfullness of their claims only to find find out that they were scams with get rich quick schemes. If it looks too good to be true, then it is. We have to be alert and always aware of the trap and know that it exists. The fact that most of us found this site is testament that we will not fall into their trap no matter how colorful it looks. Be ever vigilant and avoid their schemes and traps. Their traps come with long jail terms being an accessory to their scam even though we didn't originate it. So that's my 2 cents.

TO: A. CARROZZA

NO! IT IS A FRAUD! AND SCAM!

2006-03-29 18:37:06 - Phillip Petros
