I was sent a check from Michael Browsky on Wells Fargo Bank. There is a letter typed from Mr. Browsky wanting me to call him to let him know that I have received this. I cannot get any information on this SUSART WORLD,INC. They claim this is for buying art and they want people like us to cash checks & send the payments by Western Union. Could you help me with this, please?

i know someone that was sent a 2 walmart money orders that were fake. when looked at by bank employees it appeared to be real however when we attempted to cash at a check cashing establishment he was arrested and charged with forgery. the money orders were shipped fed-ex to his home. unsure whom they were from but he believes that it was payment for work done on the internet and that why he attempted to cash them. need help to clear his name. he wants to become a police officer and this is preventing him from his career.

This is a scam. Do not send in any money or use your credit card even if you decided not to pursue it and return back the package (on time), he will steal $35.00 from you. He did it to me, he is going to do the same to you.

He sent me an email saying that he is going to credit me back but I have not seen a single cent from my account. (please see chain email below)

I'm being really kind here and NOT saying what I really think you need to hear. I will authorize the shipping company to do a refund of your $35, it will take a few days to get back into your account (but right now I could care less). Anyway, just so you know, I have blocked your email address so no further emails from you will be read or even seen. Have a good life, in fact, get a life.

SEMPER FI...

Just recieved a check issued by: Travelers Express company, Inc., P. O. Box 9476, Minneapolis, MN 55480, Drawee: US Bank, St. Paul MN....

The upper left hand corner says the SOVEREIGN BANK is the Agent for Travelers Express, and then, it is typed in: Atlantic Trade Inc.

The check is in the amount of: $85,000.64, and the check No. is: 5008060 [in black ink]

The numbers at the bottom of this check are:
5008060 096016765 0160010625462

The check was sent to me UPS...and the return address is in Africa

This appears to be a FRAUD...any ideas here ???

I received an email from a James Reed stating that he would like to purchase a product from my estore in payment of money order, I told him ok. So a few days later I received a Fedex package with two money orders in the amount of $2800 yet the money order's purchaser was a Steve Spence and the product he was requesting was only 1,300 and some change, immediately I was skeptical and did not attempt to cash the money orders.
Again, watch out for emails from James Reed and money orders from Steve Spence.
Money order details:
*Wal-Mart Financial Services(issuing agent)
*Travelers Express Company,Inc(issuer/drawer)
*WF National Bank (Payable thru)\
*All of which are legitimate yet the money orders stated above were forged and/or altered*

Dear Friend,
My name is Susan Harrison-Justain, I am an artist with my husband James Harrison,We own SUS ART WORLD in London,I live in London United Kingdom, with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my husband James Harrison. 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 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 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 , CASHER'S CHECK,TRAVELLER'S CHECK etc, which is difficult for me to cash here in London United Kingdom.
I am looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 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 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 STATES OF AMERICA who will be handling the payment aspect for our company.
These payments are in MONEY ORDERS,CASHER'S CHEQUE etc and they wouldcome 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 WESTERN UNION Charges then wire the rest back.
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,and the person will go to JAIL for LOOTING my funds , you are to receive the MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE PAYMENT which will be sent to you by the FEDEX or UPS from my clients and customers,take it to your bank account to enable you cash it and send the money cashed for the MONEY ORDERS OR CASHER'S CHEQUE to me via WESTERN UNION OR MONEY GRAM.
NOTE: All charges of the WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER will be deducted from the money, 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.
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 my customers will send the MONEY ORDERS to you via FedEx or overnight shipment.
Thanks for your assistant and God bless,
