Received many email opportunities since the first one I received in summer 2007. The money orders looked real. I took them to my bank, & told him of the job offer I received and the instructions I was given to deposit them in my bank and send 90% to the name supplied. His quote was, "You are scaring me", & followed with a story of a customer who did this against his advise and not only lost his money, but was liable for the scam, because his name was associated with the money. Although I was not going to cash the checks and was planning to call the local sheriff's dept. & give them the money orders, my banker called and verified each one, they all had been cashed for a lessor amount the week before.

Today I received a letter from Wingas,a real company, so it appears, but it is exactly like the scam I was sent last year, since then, I have received countless offers from other "named" companies, but none was as official as this one. -email below:


PART TIME JOB OFFER

Before I proceed I must first apologize for this unsolicited mail to you, My name is Dr Rainer Seele (Head of Public Relations, WINGAS Companies)..

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.

DEDUCT YOUR PERCENTAGE (10% OF EACH PAYMENT) AND FORWARD THE BALANCE

Wingas and its approved recruitment consultants will never ask you for

My client have sent you $3,400 worth of Money Orders via UPS.The package will be getting to you today.

You are to go right away to your BANK and have the payment cashed instantly or deposited into your bank account, which after 24hrs the payment must have cleared and funds will be available in your account. Please do not cash my payments anywhere else apart from your BANK for safety reasons.

I want you to SPLIT the funds into 2 equal parts and send from 2 different Western Union shops to the details provided below,after deducting your 10 percent. The Western Union transfer fees should be deducted from my 90 percent. You are to use 2 Western Union shops for the wire transfers.

BELOW ARE 2 OF MY SALES REP DETAILS YOU NEED FOR BOTH TRANSFERS:

NAME:JOHN AKINTOLA
ADDRESS: 10 VICTORIA ISLAND ST., LAGOS, NIGERIA

SECOND TRANSFER

NAME:IBITOYE RICHARD
ADDRESS: 10 VICTORIA ISLAND ST., LAGOS, NIGERIA

PLS NOTE:

Please remember to tell the Western Union shops that there should be no form of hold on the funds and that it should be made available for pick up immediately and also the funds should be paid out here in US Dollars.

I await the Western Union transfer details of the 2 names as stated above immediately both transfers are made accordingly and you will start getting 12 percent from the subsequent payments once you execute this very one properly. Thanks!!
