THIS IS GOING TO BE LONG... BUT WORTH THE READ

It's a damn good thing that I am smart! I hope everyone that gets an email from these people are smart enough to do some research before handing out any information to people they DO NOT know. Let me first start off by saying that if you are reading this: TAKE IT SERIOUSLY. What I am telling you is the GODS honest truth. These people are scammers and they are smart in a bad way. Let me give you the email I received today. First, I have no idea how they got my email address (RED FLAG #1)

The email read:

Good Day
My name is Marley Johnson, I run a small Jewellery company in West Sussex(United Kingdom)with my wife (Hannan). I have sold my goods all around the world.I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my goods to Americans, they are always offering to pay with MONEY ORDER, which is difficult for me to cash here in London United Kingdom,So i am looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA who will be working for me as a part time worker and i will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction, which wouldn't affect your present state of work, All you will be doing is to receive payments from my customers in the states inform of a money order or travler cheque,Cash it and deduct 10% out of it then send the remaining 90% back to us via WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER.

Note:Be rest assured that you will not spend a dime out of your personal money.If you are interested,get back to me with the listed information below
#Your full name: as it will be on the money order
#Your full home address: where the payment will be sent to
#direct or cell contact telephone number,
#have you receivce a job offer like this before

Best regards
Marley Johnson

I was interested, but needed more info. So I sent an email back asking if the western union fee cuts into my 10%. They emailed back:

Your bank will verify the payment before the funds can be released to you..I know your bank we put 3 days hold on the payment before the money can be issued out..My client are trustworthy and honest people, they can never issue a bad payment to you..The F.B.I in washington know about this business and we have been doing it for a long time..... Yes to your question ,you dont need to spend a dime,the 10% is all yours,after the deduction of your percentage,remove some of the money to pay the Western union Charges.

I replied:

That doesnt make sense to me. My question was :To Western Union something takes money and will that fee be cutting in to my 10%. You said yes to that, then you said I wont have to spend a dime. When you answered yes to my question, does it means that I'm taking some of the 10% that I make and using it to send the payment western union? If so, then I'm not making 10%.

They replied:

Get the check cashed and deduct your 10% ....and send via western union money transfer the deduction we be deduct from the money you are sending to me you are not going to spend any money from your wallet.

I replied:

Oh ok. Whats the average sales of some of your best clients?

By this time, I think they were getting pissed!! So they replied:

Do you really want to work...bcos, i don't understand your question?.....3500$ is the highest paid.If you really want to work. send me your infomation!

TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE READING THIS...DO YOUR RESEARCH!

I checked out there website...yeah, it looks real, got products on it and pictures n all but it's a website, ANYONE can get a website. Having a website, does not make you a ligit business. I have a banking background and I started thinking about the transactions. Could these people really be trusted? NO THEY CANT. my initial GUT FEELING say NO WAY!!! If you use these money orders and cash them at YOUR bank with YOUR NAME on them, you can be arrested!!! These money orders are not real. They are fake. If you get caught at a bank with a fake money order with your name on it from some fly by night name that you cant put a face to...your done!! Please understand that these types of things are a dime a dozen and they are all over and come in many different packages. Just use this rule of thumb...WESTERN UNION SOMETHING OVER SEAS TO SOMEONE YOU DONT KNOW = SCAM.

I hope this helps you.

Good tidings to you as you read. My name is Dr. Robert Hamburg. I am a freelance researcher and Chief Consultant of Linker Research and Consulting Inc. I was born in Baltimore, Maryland in the year 1967, I presently live in the United kingdom, with my three kids and the love of my life. I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you could earn a lot. I just came about your email address and your brief profile through an email listing affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR US?
Presently, I have just been granted a funding to he ad a research project in the tropical regions of West Africa regarding rare and vulnerable plant species and this would be commencing very soon, However my funding were by my American counterparts which sent me the bunch of payments mostly in US based money orders. Getting an accountant in the states or opening an account would have been my best choice but I have a deadline to meet and taking any of those choices would cost me time and a whole lot of other requirements I am not ready to deal with, as I would be traveling a lot in the meantime. So presently, assuming you would be able to deal with cash, I would be willing to employ you on contract basis to be my payment representative back in the states, this way I could issue and make these money orders out to you, you could then cash them easily, withdraw 10% of the total amount on these money orders as your commission and then send the rest back to me through Western Union wire transfer. You will be furnished with enough i nformation to send the balance less Western union charges and your 10% to us when we confirm a payment being sent to you.

Please if you are honest and dedicated and willing to work for us I will be needing the following information to get to my US based clients so that you can start receiving our payments as our US based representative.
1. Full name as it should appear on the Money orders and checks,
2. Physical address so that the payments can be sent to you via Ups, Fed ex or Usps courier service.
3. Your home and cell phone number for better communication.
Please reply this email with the information i asked for only if you are really dedicated and trustworthy. The link to our website will be up soon as it is being re-designed right now. Expecting to read from you soon.
Warm Regards,
Dr. Robert Hamburg.

I've received fake WalMart money orders twice. 1st ones, I took to my bank. They have them, along with an email, UPS envelope that they came in. Received two more last week, took them to WalMart, they wouldn't cash them but advised me to deposit them. Same story about sending extra money overseas...

Received this fraudulent order through our website:

Bill to: Craig Owen, Lakesides Communications
6770 West Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89103
Bill Telephone: 775-383-1546
email: cowen@lakesidescomms.net

Ship to: Herald Landsay
Quick Lagos
191 Schaefer St., Suite 2
Brooklyn, NY 11207
Phone: 216-502-3361

They asked that this be shipped NEXT DAY AIR EARLY AM which is always a tip-off of a fraud order.

The order was for almost $2,000.00 worth of equipment.

Don't be taken in!

I see there is a lot of lakeside communications and cody trading estates on here.

I never ship goods to anywhere of an E16 postcode especially when the order is from a hotmail address.
Typical dodgy nigerians.
