received an email as follows, suspect is fraudulant as all the ones from Nigeria that are received- this one is from Susan at SUS ART WORLD. I have received thousands of dollars of bogus money orders and checks which have been scanned and given to the FBI Internet Fraud unit. You may email them any scam attempts by going to wwwifccfbi.gov. They will give you a file number and a password to go back and add information. I was on a singles webpage, and that is how most of these people reached me, saying they are singles and looking for a new partner. They use other peoples pictures and Id, as I was able to identify a couple of them as they left the actual owners Yahoo email address on the email. STUPID! Please report all of these people to the FBI link included.

I received an e-mail wanting a u.s. represntative to collect money orders and cash them, forwarding money by w.u. to this person in London???

i got this email i don't know if it is fake..but it sounds like the ones list down below..and i didn't want to give my real name..so, no one can email me a fake email again.

Dear friend,

My name is Paul Kluivert, I am an artist with my Wife Susan Kluivert, 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 London, with my two 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 order ,home equity,insurance equity,property equity,check or q-chex and other forms of payment acceptable only in the united states, which is difficult for me to cash
here in the London,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 q-chex and checks and they would be specifically drafted to you in your name and sent to you personally ,so all you need to do is cash the money order ,home equity,insurance equity,property equity,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 gets 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 not reply if you are not a honest, commitedand reliable individual.

I look forward to hearing from you

Well I see I have joined the ranks of many. My story is similar, however a bit diffrent then some I read. I was approached my "Lyord Williams" of Wilcox fabrics and prints. He found my resume on a job search site. Said that I seemed qualified to become his personal representative here in the U.S. He needed some one here in the states to convert US money orders to cash and then wire him the remainder after my 12% was deducted. I filled out a job application, he told me how he acquired his late uncle's business, that he was married with children and dogs. He stated he lived in Leeds U.K but was In Africa right now starting up a branch there and then he was headed to the states to do the same. He thanked me profusly and used "GOD" a lot in his emails. This morning I received 6 Walmart Money Orders for $925. a piece but only wanted me to wire $2000. to two diffrent people. His employees. I thought this whole story seemed odd to begin with so I had researched it and knew something wasn't right. I took the money orders to my local police station and the detective said to not cash them, they were phony. I searched the bank it was drawn on and that led me here to this site. My bank told me the only way to verify their authenticity was to deposit one, and don't touch the cash. If it were not fake it would clear within 7 days. If it doesn't clear I will be out $5.. My cut would have been $666. I wonder if there is a signifigance in 666. Anyway that is my story, I am awaiting the outcome of the one I deposited, however I already know. My grandfather said never kick a gift horse in the mouth but he also said if it looks to good to be true it normally is. I am a mother of three, unemployed and pretty much poor at this point. I hope this story helps other people. This mans address is lyordwilliams99@yahoo.com. Oh and the origin of the package was Paris France, The senders address was Texas and I live in Maine. I was to send the remaining money to Nigeria.
