I was subject to an email fraud that I proceeded without having done any diligebt research. I was anxious to be a bookepper of services for a 10% commission. The first money orders I received I processed the U.S. Post Office money orders with my bank. In two days they showed to be fradulent. The following is the text of the solicitation. It has caused me the embarrassment of my bank account being shut down.

My daughter ran an ad to sell a dinning room set for $400.00 in Naples, FL. She received a call from an interpeter for the deaf. The woman agreed to the price and said she would sent a MO for the furniture and arrange for a shipper to pick it up. Today, we received a check for $3500.00 with instructions to take our agreed amount and get a MO and send it to the shipper in London, UK. I called the local FBI office and was told this was a scam and to check the bank that the check was drawed on....it probably was a fake. He also refered me to a web-site to file a compaint because there are e-mail involved. The web-site is: www.ic3.gov

Our clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of U.S. Money Order which are not readily cashable outside the United States, so we need someone in the United States to work as our representative and assist us in processing the payments from our clients and he/she would be paid a weekly salary.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS RECEIVE THIS PAYMENTS FROM OUR CLIENTS ON BEHALF OF OUR COMPANY IN THE UNITED STATES, GET IT CASHED IMMIDIATLY WITHOUT DEPOSITION THEN DEDUCT YOUR WEEKLY PAY AND FOWARD THE BALANCE TO THE COMPANY DOWN HERE VIA WESTERN UNION/MONEY GRAM MONEY TRANSFER.

Basically what the Company is searching for is a Representative/Book-keeper in the States who wou ld help to establish a medium of getting our

These are legitimate transactions between our customers and our company Representative and there is no legal risk as these are payments for goods already bought and delievered. We are offering 10% of whatever amount it is that you cash per week as salary and subject to your satisfaction you will be given the oppurtunity to negotiate the mode by which we will pay for your services as our official Representative/Book-keeper in the States. The mode we would prefer would be instant deduction of your salary from the Amount before going ahead to send whatever is left back via Western Union/MoneyGram Money Transfer.

We are aware that you would be charged to have the money sent, whatever that would amount to is to be deducted from the balance of the funds after you must have deducted your salary.
