ok so a while back i signed up for a part time job recieving money and sending it western union to someone...i recieved about 6,000 in money orders and travelers checks NONE of them are real im not stupid enough to cash them and ive been informed by the police that this is a fraud never accept a job offer doing anything like that at all if it is a job offer make sure u talk to someone on the phone and that u are actually getting a real check for your services. there are so many scams out there today people think o wow free money, it may be free to begin with but ur going to end up paying for it in the end

the people that do this stuff emailed me one time sent it to me i replied that they were fake and i didnt recieve anything else since then... this last one i got an email from is a different name and hes supposedly saying hes going to send me a copy of his legit drivers license and the correct paperwork that ur fill out when u have a job. i doubt its real but we need to get these people for what they are doing so the more emails u get and respond to the better way the police and FBI can catch these scammers.

Hello, just another warning about Cheapfabrics U.K. I answered an advertisement in my citie's major newspaper re a job opportunity. I got an immediate reply from a Dr. Murray asking me for personal information and a copy of my passport page. I sent off the information and to my regret find that this company is a total scam. AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE. I contacted the local newspaper to appraise them of the situation. Watch out for this bunch of charlatans.

Hello
How was your day ? fine i guess .however the job starts this week and you should receive the first payment before friday . the package will be deliver to you by FEDEX and it will contain money order. when you receive this package yo will take to the bank and cash it , an email should be send to me with the kind of money orders or travellers check you receive and how much was sent to you, please this is important because we keep record of all our payments in book,so you will then take it to the bank and cash it, and if your bank can't cash it instantly you can also deposit it and we will wait for it to clear. it normally takes a day or two for money orders to clear most banks.
After you have cash it, you will deduct the 10% we agree to pay you and wire the remainder
through western union to the Manger in our other branch in Nigeria . , below is he infomation that the funds will bewire to.
=========================
NAME===== FEMI AKINTUNDE
CITY======= LAGOS
STATE====LAGOS
COUNTRY=== NIGERIA
ZIPCODE ==== 23401
==========================
our company will be responsible for the western union charges and all kind of taxes. as soon as you wire the money pls i will need the following information from you :-
i, ten digit control number (MTCN)
ii, test question and answer
iii, amount send
