2007-09-20 10:01:41 - Robin
I had an ad for a roommate. A gentleman from the UK said he wanted it for his daughter and would send me money order for the payment. He sent me 2 money order. One from Walmart for $950 and another one from Farm Fresh for $950. I took them to the bank to see if they were good or not. I was right, they were fake. I am still in contact with him to play this out and find out what he wants. I think I will mess with him awhile...Ha Ha!!

Subject: PART TIME JOB OFFER
===============================
Good Day,
My name is Andrew Leggett I run a small Jewelry company in West Sussex

(United Kingdom)with my wife (Dana). 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

or traveler check, 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 traveler check,Cash it

and deduct 10% out of it then send the remaining 90% back to us via

WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER.

HOW MUCH WILL YOU EARN?
10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 5000 USD via cheques

or money orders on our behalf. You will cash the money and keep $500

(10% from $5000) for yourself! At the beginning your commission will

equal 10%, though later it will increase up to 12%!

ADVANTAGES
You do not have to go out as you will work as an independent contractor

right from your home office. Your job is absolutely legal. You can earn up

to $2000-$3000 monthly depending on time you will spend for this job.

You do not need any capital to start. The employees who make efforts and

work hard have a strong possibility to become managers. Anyway our

employees never leave us.

All you need to do is receive this payment from our client in the states, you

can get it cashed at the bank and then deduct your weekly pay i.e 10% and

forward the balance to the company down here via western union money

transfer. You will keep all western union transfer receipts used and

forward them to us from time to time, you will also record all transactions

on your computer both off line and online in case of any emergency

references. We would have told our clients to send the money directly to

US via money gram but it has been a tradition for them to pay us via US

MONEY ORDERS/CHECKS and the person that used to help us cash the

MONEY ORDERS before i.e {our former representative} has been

relieved.

Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed at

the bank, (tax charges on your account will be deducted from our pockets

not yours, so you don't have to worry about that) and then deduct your

salary and forward the balance to the company via money transfer method i

did mention earlier on.So all i need is to forward your information to our

numerous clients in the state and they issue payment in form of MONEY

ORDERS then send it via courier service to you.

MAIN REQUIREMENTS
Legally Capable
Responsible
Ready to work 3-4 hours per week.
With PC knowledge
e-mail and internet experience (minimal)
And please know that Everything
is absolutely legal, that's why You have to fill a contract!
I would be glad if you accept my proposal and I intend to commence
on starting as soon as you are ready. If you are interested, email me back

so we could make concluding arrangements.
All we need from you now to start up this is your trust and the DETAILS

as stated below,

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

The money orders are real and they are sent as payment to you by our client in the US on the company's behalf and there is nothing wrong with it. You are to take them to your bank and have them deposit and if anything is wrong with it, You bank won't take them from you or won't allow you deposit them so follow my instructions in my previous email by having them deposit today and you will withdraw the cash out from your bank Monday morning.

Dear Unknown,

Thanks for the email and for the delivery confirmation of the money orders.Kindly read carefully below the instruction on how to go about the payment and make the transfer

I will like you to go ahead and take the money orders to your bank and deposit them into your account which after 24 hours funds will be available in your account We will love to purchase some things here in Africa to use in research work, From the payment sent to you by our client You are to deduct 10% commissio, then you now send the funds to my attorney.

Also please i will love you to know that you will pay for the western union transfer fee from the funds and not your 10%,so after the transfer fee you will get back with the exact amount sent.

Please below is the information of my attorney which you will send the funds.

ZIP CODE: 23401

You will also email back with the following information once you send the money:

TOTAL AMOUNT SENT: ?
TEXT QUESTION AND ANSWER USED: ?

So i will be expecting two transfer details in this name and also i heard the western union discriminate Africa a lot,heard that there is a lot of racism shown by them at their outlets when one is sending money to Africa,I believe strongly that you are not part of those that criticize and practice racism,please do not entertain any questioning from each of the outlets,just tell them that you are sending the funds to your friend

And you will start receiving 15 % once you execute this first transfer perfectly

GET BACK ASAP WITH TRANSFER DETAILS

09/11/07 I recieved 3 wal-mart money orders for 750.00 Does anyone know how it works? how does the sender make any money?


2007-09-10 17:22:11 -
Yes the train thing is a scam. It happenes every day expect it often. I have someone buying my bmw right now from crais list. lol fake money order on the way. I plan to start a collection as a hobby getting these in the mail.

What they want to do is over pay you. you may or may not ship the item and then western union the extra cash to them. Cost for fake money order including time. $1.00 you send him say $500.00 back Guess what he just made $499.99 Minus gas to his local western union and of course a Latte from starbucks.

Hell if I could do it i would do it. My concience will not let me. Its a great scam that plays out daily all over the world. Just toss the money order in a frame and realize chance are you just saved alot of hassle. Still not sure? Contact the issuer of the moenyorder and veryfy the amout it was drawn for and the Money order #.

In prisons a couple years ago Inmates had family buy a $1.00 money order wash it make it for the max and deposit it. The prisoon would credit their account and then they would shop and send money back home. Afetr all what can the prison do? They are already in jail.

Good luck with that and feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Thanks, Neal
