I also called Coffee Holding Inc and they said the ad I responded to on Craigslist for Data Entry Rep was not theirs and they aren't affiliated with this other company from the UK at all! I called money tree and told them what is happening and I am taking the money orders to them so they can see if they can figure it out. I will also be filing a police report.

hello i just got moneygram money orders and i wanted to know how you check if they are real or not please tell me how

Good tidings to you as you read. My name is Dr. Robert Hamburg. I am a
freelance researcher and Chief Consultant of Neal Research and Consulting
Inc. I wasborn 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 and the U.A.E. 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 or Money gram 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 Neal 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.

Well, I fell for the same scam. I recieved 4 Parcel Post Money Orders yesterday, delivered by UPS. I e-,ailed a person. Paul Williams and ask what I was supposed to do with them. He advised me to cash them at my bank. Deduct 10% + money transfer cost and send the remainder to Ghana. I tried to cash them and was told by my bank that they were suspicious. I looked uo this web site. Sure eneough, it is a scam. I have printed out all e-mails and instructions. Also I am keeping the money orders. I may be able to use them to shut them down.
