I received a letter from Susan Harrison who owns SUS Art World. She wanted me to cash money orders and Cashiers checks keep 10% and mail the cash back to her via a Money Gram or Western Union. How can such a beautiful woman if it was her do such a thing. I fell for it but the e-mail wouldn't go through.

Dear Friend,

My name is Susan Bryant, I am an artist with my husband James Bryant,We
own
Susan 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
James Bryant (an employer in computerjobs.com and smarthunt.com). 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,canadains,even people in the uk e.t.c they are always
offering to

for
every transaction, which wouldn't affect your present state of work,

the
state and getting payments is very expensive, I am working on setting
up a

STATES
OF AMERICA who will be handling the payment aspect for our company.


These payments are in MONEY ORDERS OR TRAVELLERS CHEQUES and they would
come
to you in your name if you are willing to assist as a representative,
so all
you need do is cash the FUNDS.


But the problem i have is trust, i have made arrangement with the FBI
in
Washington,that if anybody tries to gets away with my money they will
definately get hold of the person,and the person will go to JAIL for
LOOTING
my funds , you are to receive PAYMENTS which will be sent to you by
the
FEDEX or USPS from my business partners, which would come in form of
either
TRAVELLERS CHEQUES OR MONEY ORDER then contact me as soon as you have
the
payment (BE IT TRAVELLERS CHAEQUES OR MONEY ORDERS) so that i can relay
the
proper cashing instructions to you and subseqent western union
instructions.

I received 5 money orders for 950 each I have deposited them into my bank account and waiting on clearance. I deposited them on the 21st and they are suppose to be available on the 31st we'll see what happens, I'll be sure to keep you guy's posted! Has anyone ever deposited them and then withdrew the money? If they were in the bank that long?

HOW CAN I AUTHENTICATE A MONEY ORDER ISSUED BY TRAVELERS EXPRESS COPANY,INC. PAYABLE THROUGH WF NATIONAL BANK SOUTH CENTRAL, FARIBAULT, Mn????

I was contacted via email by someone by the name of Josh Costner (at least that what he said) with a company called C&C Limited in England. He needed someone to cash USPS money orders in the US on his behalf and wire transfer the money to Nigeria. I received 7 money orders made out to me for 850.00 each, the address on the money orders was from someone in Arizona, however the Fed Ex package came from France. I took the money orders to the Postmaster and they were counterfeit. If I would have cashed them, my bank would have charged the 5900.00 back to my account, but they would have already gotten the cash. Glad I found these warnings! Don't do this people, if you do receive money orders from these people, turn them into your local Postmaster as they have investigations into these counterfeit operations.

My name is Jude Lapierre,

I am an artist with my Wife Susan Lapierre, and we
are the owners of Sus Art World you were recommended to us on the basis
of your honesty and character by an agency based in the united states
to which we first made this application to before you where recommended
to us as been competent. I live in Abidjan Cote D Iviore, with my
three kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life my Wife Susan.

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 6 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 orders ,checks and q-chex and
other forms of payment acceptable only in the united states, which is
difficult for me to cash here in Abidjan,
I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for me as a
par-time worker and I will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction, which
would not affect your present state of work, someone who would help me
receive payments from my customers in the united states, i mean someone
that is responsible, reliable and credible, cause the cost of coming to
the state and getting payments is very expensive,

I am working on setting up a branch in the states, so in the interim I need a
representative in the united state who will be handling the payment aspect, These
payments are in money order ,q-chex and checks and they would be
specifically drafted to you in your name and sent to you personally ,so all
you need do is cash the money order ,check or q-chex deduct your
percentage and wire the rest back. But the problem I have is trust, But I have
my way of getting anyone that gets away with our money,

I mean the FBI branch in Washington will get involved when our Money get missing, It
would not cost you any amount to receive payments which will be sent to
you via FedEx, ups or any other credible courrier from my business
partners and associates ,

If you are interested, please get back to me as
soon as possible via email with your full name, address, direct contact
telephone number and a scanned copy of any identity card of you, the
form of identification you choose to present must not have your social
security number on it for your own privacy and security reasons .please do

i look forward to hearing from you

I may have just done something really stupid, can someone please let me know what they think about this. I tried to blow off one of these money order scams after I ignorantly got involved and this is what he send me:
Hello Eva.

I've read your mail and called you as regards this issue yesterday but my hands are tied right now as the client told me yesterday that if i have the orders sent back to them,will i also pay for their bills in getting the orders to you???I however reached out to my lawyer as regards this issue and he adviced that i tell you to cash the orders and send them even if you will have to take them to new orleans to cash because,my lawyer said that this people will be sueing me for damages of the orders which it's not useful for anyone to cash except you whose name has been written on it,so if you're not after your commission of 510$,you should remember that there is a case at stake and once i'm being sued as regards that,i will get you arrested and you will be made to pay for it.Or maybe you will cash just about 2000$ out of the money and send the rest later.You should have informed me earlier on before this,it's more than i can handle now.I'm sorry for the demise of your grandfather,my sincere condolences.Tell your husband that i'm sorry once again for the call.It was due to the difference in the time-zones.i wasnt aware of that until then.Sorry Eva,try to do what will get you out of trouble because you're just trying to build a new home and remember that your employment form is with me containing all your necessary informations and you can be easily reached.I'm sorry for this.I will be expecting your soonest reply,and always remember you have a family like me.This is the best i can do to help you.

What I'm a bit worried about is how I responded:
hi,
I also did some research of my own. I'm not a total idiot. everything I told is the truth, however, I know that this is a fake money order scam. I am not going to jeopardize myself for this. If you want to try and have me arrested, do it. I have all of your information also and all the information I gave you on myself is not correct because I never did trust you fully. I was warned before hand by several victims of these same scams but I was trying to give you the benefit of the doubt anyway. If I do get my hands on the money orders I am going to take them to the bank and have them checked for validity. If it comes out that they are fakes, I have your information and I will submit it all including all emails you have sent me to the proper authorities. If they come back valid, then you will have my sincerest apologies and I will help you in anyway possible from that point forward. I'm sorry, but I've seen too many of these cases and I have no idea about you or your company to trust you. I did find it extremely odd that you use an internet service to find employees but you have no web site. If you get your lawyer involved I will get mine also. This is all for the protection of my family. If this is a fake money order scam, then please do not attempt to contact me again and I will never mention this to anyone or hold it against you. If try to use my information against me, do remember that it's not all accurate and it will be traced and you will be caught!
good bye,
Eva M. Townsend (?)

Was this a stupid move or did I do the right thing?
