I received what appears to look like a check from CVS Pharmacy with WF National Bank South Central listed as the bank. Routing number is 091900533. The bank says it is a money gram the Money gram says it is not. I am assuming it is invalid.

It is a sad tale but I have been informed that I received $10MillionUSD through a Western Union Promotions Lottery in the UK. A Sandra Markson has shown her WU badge and ID. She and a Frank Banason with City Trust Bank, PLC, ? now Citibank in London have been asking and receiving money for transfer and taxes on the money before the PIN or Password is released. I have even received access tothe account that reflects the $10MM balance. This has been going on for 3-4 months and I have sent $3100USD. Today, Mr. Banason says I must pay $300USD or the account will be closed for good. Mrs.Markson was wired money through Moneygram and Western Union. This past Friday, I wired the $300USD and supposedly Mrs. Markson had a tragic car wreck on the way back to the bank. She is supposedly in a coma and my $300 went missing in the wreck. She is also alledged to have lost her daughter in the wreck. Now Mr. Banason is insisting that I pay the $300 or lose the account for ever, assuming there was an account for real. I am feeling very pressured to pay. Yet, I have suspicions that I have been scammed. This is the short version....there are hundreds of emails that have gone back and forth. I have contacted someone in the London Crime Investigation Department to begin an investigation. At this point, all I feel is foolish and frustrated. Do you have any suggestions and have means to provide assistance?
Best regards, JLW

VONOTEXTILES & FABRICS

Offer PT Job for money transfer from UK to USA and back.


2007-11-07 19:28:55 -
Hi, I was selling a tv in the internet. The person who purchased it sent me 4 money orders in the amount of 950.00 each. I sold the tv for 800.00. He wants me to give the difference to the shipping agency. It seems kind of weird that he sent me too much money. I have the money orders what should I do?

The only creature that thinks the cheese is free is a rat. (Approximation of an old Russian proverb). There is a Jewelry store web site in UK that has been around more than five years, but no shopping cart, etc.

They sent me 10 Money Grams International Money Orders drawn on WF National Bank South Central Fairbaut, MN.

Here is this a.m.'s email:

Michael,

Compliments of the day. Finally, the first payment was mailed yesterday by one of our Clients and he emailed us with the tracking number. I was told that the payment will surely arrive this morning via UPS.

Here is the tracking number: 1Z548V8W1595741994
You can go to www.ups.com to track and know the status of the package.

IMPORTANT: The package will require a signature before release. So you have to make sure you are at home to sign for it, and if you know you will not be around because you might have to work or you might have some other assignment to take care of this morning kindly leave a note for the UPS man tagged to your front door with your name and signature so that they will leave the package for you till you come back. , therefore I do not want you to miss the delivery of the payment this morning.

The Amount is $7500, and he has made the payment via Money Orders. (10 Pieces, $750 Each)

That means the payment that will be delivered this morning will contain 10 Money Orders each worth $750 totalling $7500. This is done for easy processing. I need you to have it cashed in your bank as soon as the payment is delivered so that you can send out the remaining funds ASAP after your 10% has been deducted. I hope you understand.

After you have cashed it let me know VIA Email and I will email you with where to send the 90% minus the Western Union Charges to via Western Union.

Furthermore, as instructed by the client who sent the funds when the payment arrives you are to fill the PAY TO THE ORDER OF
_____________________________ (With Your Name)
The second part has been taken care of by him by signing as the purchaser. Lastly you will fill your address at the bottom line that says ADDRESS: ____________________________
Fill the information with a black Ink Pen for everything to match.

I hope this Information is well understood by you and with it you should have no problem cashing these checks.

Lastly, I will be awaiting your email in return that you received this email and also you will follow my instruction by informing me via email as soon as the payment ARRIVES and also have it CASHED today in your bank. I will email you later on where to send the 90% to via Western Union. Ensure you get this done today.

Once again I am glad this is coming to reality.....PLS GET BACK TO ME AFTER THIS IS READ....
I will look forward to reading from you.

Thanks
Warren James

I have been a victim of internet fraud. I am now recieving calls daily from a man wanting money to claim an inheritance . And Today I recieved a FedEx package that had three usps money orders in it for what I thought was a couple of ebay items I had sold. when I took them to cash them I was told they were counterfit and my local post office keep them. To tell you the truth they really looked lagit. They had they water mark and the strip. The post master would not tell me where they were fake. And I never asked any questions. But I do have the ladies number that sent them to me . So I am calling her. as I am a parent who could use the money to help my children it is very disapointing to find this out. So please tell everyone to be careful!!

This is an e-mail i recieved from Gallerybiz04@aol.com

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 head 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 information 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.
CEO Linker Research and Consulting Inc.
107B Jermyn Street,
London, SW1Y 6EQ, UK.

NB: As a show of good faith and trust, I will send you a copy of my valid
US driver's license and you will also send me a copy of your valid ID
which you will attach to the company employment form that I will send to
you when you reply this email with the details I asked for above.
