johnn kalo [johnkalocomp_4@yahoo.com] for Kalo Fabrics Unlimited in the united kingdom is needing paying agents! Warning- this smells phishy!! Don't fall for it!
"It is an "Online Job" that would not affect your present job.

It has been noticed that there has been a lot of difficulties while Selling our products to our customers in the United States/Canada as a result of certain modes of payment. It has been observed by our Sales Department that any payment via Cheques/Money Orders from these two regions causes a delay in realising the funds here in the United Kingdom and most of our customers cant wait for that long, due to the fact that we have to receive payment before any supply is made. As a result of this, it has imposed a burden on us and we have lost a lot of customers because of this problem.

I often do come to the USA/Canada to receive payments from our customers and have it cashed before any supply. It is always very expensive and stressful for me to embark on such trips and process such payments on a monthly basis. I therefore have decided to contact you to seek your interest in this Job Position.

Reliable and Trustworthy Company Representatives are needed to assist us in processing Payments from our Customers in your region and we offer an Attractive Renumeration package and good carrier prospects."

There you have it FRAUD!


2007-11-22 11:54:05 -
Hello,I called you earlier today and left message for you, there is nothing to worry about okay, there is every documents that covers this transaction, the shipping company will handle this because this is not the first time of handling such thing, they have what it takes since they are doing it on LEGAL grounds.
You dont have to return the payment okay, i will be waiting for your update when payment comes in.Regards.
Oh, you are geting it wrong, it is actually going to be shipped to Arizona, the shipping company has affiliated office in the state here which they will handle all that when money is received in their head office, i hope you get it right now.Hope to hear from you when payment is received.Thanks.

Hello,How are you today? just want to know if you a have received payment from MR. MARK KENT.If you haven't received it yet please when today's mail comes in, do keep me posted because it might be there.
Waiting to hear from you, Regards.

How are you today? please let me know if you have received the payment sent by MR. MARK KENT.
Your update will be highly appreciated.Thanks.

No, I have not received a payment. I have been waiting for your payment for a month. Now the gun is back up for sale. If your payment does arrive I will return to sender without opening since I have also been waiting for an address from you to send it back. I will email you when and if I ever receive it and return it. If it has been sent, I advise you to run a track on it because it has been a long time in coming.

The payment is NOT on mail for the past a month but was actually issued and sent on 11/8th but according to Mr. Mark Kent, it was sent through regular mail and i hope you will get it this week for sure.Thank and i await update when you get it..

The first email below was sent on the 29th of Oct., the second email was sent on the 3rd of Nov. and the third email was sent on Nov. 8th. All three state payment was already sent. Do you think I'm stupid? This is a scam in my opinion and this deal was void from the second email before because of your lies. Do not email me again or I will contact the proper authorities for this hoax. DO NOT EMAIL ME OR CONTACT ME AGAIN, IF FOR SOME UNLIKELY REASON I RECEIVE SOMETHING FROM A MARK KENT OR MARSH AFFINITY( WHICH BY THE WAY IS AN INSURANCE AGENCY NOT A FINANCIAL INSTITUTE), I WILL RETURN WITHOUT OPENING. DO NOT CONTACT ME AGAIN...

1st email---Hello, I have gotten a message that your payment has been mailed out to you according to my client, It will get to you this week end or early next week unfaillingly ok.Kindly inform me as soon as you receive the payment so that the shipper's information will be given to you, i mean where the excess fund on the payment to you will be sent to in order for them to start the arrangement for the pick up of the item from you.

2nd Email-----Hello,I have just gotten a message from my financial controller that your payment has been mailed and it will get to you this next weekend unfaillingly ok. Kindly inform me immediately you receive the payment so that the shipping company information will be given to you, i mean where the excess fund on the payment to you will be sent to in order for them to start the arrangement for the pick up of the item from you.

3rd email----Hello,I hope you got my previous email to you that stated that your payment
is on it's way, kindly get back to me immediately it comes in.

I received this email today and he is still asking and acting like nothing is wrong. This man is stupid or it is a bunch of people emailing me about this hoax.
Hello,I just want to know if the payment has been received now.Keep me posted please.

I was trying to rent out a room and the girl sent me her deposit and some extra to recieve her goods. i asked to speak with her before she sent he money but she replied via email and sent the money anyway. She sent 3-925.00 walmart money gram money orders. they looked very real but my kid accidently got it wet and the writing came off. would I be correct in assuming this is fake.


2007-11-16 21:54:29 -
my husband is sitting in jail and has been there since wednesday. he was fed ex'd 2 x $927 money orders for some wheels he was selling on craigslist and we went to Walmart to see if they were real and if he could cash them..and he was arrested and charged with Felony Forgery. I dont know when in this country the victim became the offender. there is a $5K bond set for him and he wont see the judge until monday. so....he misses 5 days of work and gets to spend 6 days in jail for nothing. i dont see how they can charge him with anything. i brought them all of the emails and everything from this guy saying he was mailing these money orders and also the fed ex envelope they came in. i dont understand our system.


2007-11-16 13:08:59 -
I am writing to advise the warning to be careful when you recieve a package from someone you do not know! They might send you fake money orders like the ones I think I just recieved and 15-20 minutes prior to the Federal Express Truck arriving the lady from London as she stated asked me to check my email and by coincidence the checks came. How weird is that? There is suppose to be a heat sensitive mark at the bottom that dissappears when heat is applied to it and of course the object was allready partially not showing to trick the banks. Be careful for we can't just get free things in the mail and if we could then wouldn't it be nice. Don't cash them for you will pay it all back and they use real tracking acounts of real businesses and hope for you to get into trouble so they can have a laugh on the USA. Let's fight back and send all of the bad checks into the Police and don't forget to bring your printed emails or email them to the Police and then they can crack down on the Theifs!

Thank You and have a Great GreatDay!, Shawn
