got this from an email adress listed as donetimex@aol.com

just got a Faremers State Bank, New Paris Branch, New Paris Ohio 45347 Cashiers Check, for 4120 dollars. im skeptical. but it sounded legit... so i dont know what to do.

Good tidings to you as you read. My name is SAM CHENEY. I
am a freelance researcher. I was born in Baltimore Maryland in
the year 1967, I presently live in the United kingdom, with my
kids, pets and the love of my life.I would be very interested in
offering you a part-time paying job in which you could earn a
lot. I just came about your email address and your brief profile
through an email listing affiliated with the US Chamber of
Commerce. All responses should be Sent to my private email;
samcheney6@aol.com or samcheney7@aol.com

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR US?
Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a
research project in the tropical regions of West Africa and the
U.A.E. regarding rare and vulnerable plant species and this
would be commencing very soon, However my funding were
by my American counterparts which sent me the bunch of
payments mostly in US based money orders. Getting an
accountant in the states or opening an account would have
been my best choice but I have a deadline to meet and taking
any of those choices would cost me time and a whole lot of
other requirements I am not ready to deal with, as I would be
traveling a lot in the meantime. So presently, assuming you
would be able to deal with cash, I would be willing to employ
you on contract basis to be my payment representative back in
the states, this way I could issue and make these money
orders out to you, you could then cash them easily, withdraw
10% of the total amount on these money orders as your
commission and then send the rest back to me through
Western Union wire transfer.

These payments are in Money Orders or Checks and they
would be written out to you in your name and sent to you via
courier, so all you need do is process the payments, then
deduct your percentage and wire the rest back.
10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000
US-D via checks or money orders on our behalf.
You do not need any office because you will work as an
independent contractor right from your home or office. Your
job is absolutely legal. You can earn up to $3000-4000
monthly depending on time you will spend for this job. You do
not need any capital to start.

This is absolutely legal, that's why you have to fill a contract!
I would be glad if you accept my proposal and I intend to
commence On starting as soon as you are ready. If you are
interested, email me Back so we could make concluding
arrangements.

Please note when replying fill the format below or fill form at
our web site www (dot) choicesconsult (dot) com and go to
Employment Form or Job Opportunity
To get started, I will need the following (7) details.

A. Your FULL NAME
B. Your Address where the Payments should be sent to via courier.
C. Telephone numbers (Cell phone and home phone but not voice mail.)
D. Age
E. Sex
F. Occupation
G. Name of company you have done this kind of work for if any

Thanks for your anticipated action. And I hope to hear back
from you.

PART TIME JOB OFFER


I am Dr. Rainer Seele Financial Director of wingas. WINGAS was formed in 1993 as
a strategic alliance between the worldâ??s largest producer of natural gas,
Gazprom, and Wintershall, the wholly owned subsidiary of Germany â??s largest
industrial gas consumer, BASF AG (BASF).

Our company is presently in search of trustworthy representatives
in the United States that will aid as a link between us and our customers
in the USA.

JOB DESCRIPTION

This project has been developed in a way not to affect your present job nor
bring you any form of stress but in order to help take care of those extra costs

it came to my knowledge that there are a lot of lapses in handling funds that
come in from the states which come in forms of cashiers checks, company checks
and money orders and are not readily cashable outside the United States and some
sent mails that do not delivered due to lapses in courier services, So we need
someone in the States to work as our representative and assist us in processing
the payments from our various clients which come in on a weekly, monthly and
annual basis. This is why we decided to get a representative over in the states
to help us pick up our payments at your contact address you shall be providing
us, in order to process our payment from our clients.

So I talked to the company accountant, and it was a good idea to hire someone
trustworthy who could receive the FUNDS in the United States and this happens to
be a good idea.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS RECEIVE THESE PAYMENTS FROM OUR
CLIENTS IN THE STATES GET IT CASHED AT YOUR BANK, THEN
DEDUCT YOUR PERCENTAGE (11% OF EACH PAYMENT) AND FORWARD THE BALANCE
OVER TO THE COMPANY'S FINANCE DIRECTOR VIA WESTERN UNION.

Our payments will be issued out in your name as we would inform our
Clients to do.

You will be required to notify us at least 14 days early, if eventually you
want to discontinue working with us, so as to terminate all payments that have
been approved to be sent to you, in order to avoid any conflicts.

BENEFIT IS AS FOLLOWS:-
* The average monthly income is about $4000....
* No form of investments from you....
* This job takes only 1-3 hours per day....
* You do not pay any form of taxes....

REQUIREMENTS :

* Residential Address (In Full, Not P.O.BOX).
* Zip Code
* City

* Contact Phone number(s).
* Email.
* Age.

Wingas and its approved recruitment consultants will never ask you for
a fee to process or consider your application for a career with wingas. Anyone
who demands such a fee is not an authorized wingas representative and you are
strongly advised to refuse any such demand. if you are interested in applying
for
the job then you can contact our agent via email with the requirements to start
receiving payments from our customers and start cashing right away.


AWAIT YOUR URGENT RESPONSE.



N/B: TO SAFEGUARD THE INTEREST OF OUR REPRESENTATIVES (YOU) WE ONLY

I responded to a job post on craigslist. Sent in my resume. It was for an admin. assistant in my area. When I got the response, he had already offered me the job and to start right away. No interview, no W-2's. Nothing. The response contained the job description which wasn't even what I had applied for. I believe this is a fraud. Here's the email:

"Good Day,



We are pleased to give you an offer for employment as a consultant with our company based on your response to our ad placed on the website few hours ago.



ABOUT OUR COMPANY:

Anthony Haines started to produce a narrow straight hand woven wool tie, which was a tremendous success with the trend setting shops. Soon the demand was such that it was necessary to have them mass-produced.
The traditional fringed wool tie was for weekend wear and not a fashion item, but when in 1965 he started producing handmade woven wool ties in classical designs, stores like Simpsons, Aquascutum, Moss Bros and Burberrys soon found they were a popular item with their customers.
To enable him to produce a wide variety of exclusive designs, Anthony decided that it was necessary to start his own weaving mill and in 1975 Anthony Haines (Textiles) Ltd was formed. This enabled him not only to produce cloth for the ties collections but to extend his ideas to quality fabric for ladies and menswear.

We are known for high quality product. We have been receiving orders from NORTHERN AMERICA,USA, AUSTRALIA and some other countries in the world, which we have not been Able to process completely since we do not have a payment receiving personnel in those Areas. We have decided to recruit Payment officers online; hence, we are looking to employ a representative to process our payments in these areas - due to Delays in processing International payments here in UK e.g. (checks and money order).
