I have recieved few emails from these check cashing companies, here is one of them..be aware

Dear Candidate,

You are one step away from being part of our company. Before we start you have to understand what our company is looking for and if you feel that this type of job is good for you follow the instructions below this introduction. If you have one free hour daily (not including weekends) you are welcome to join today. Our job is a flextime, flex-place opportunity designed to fit around your family's income and time needs. You can earn from $50,000 up to $200,000 a year (depends on our sales) and more after one year working with us. Our company can guarantee $5,500 every month income in your first year of work.

Here you have the description of this job in simple steps:

1. You agree and sign the contract, send us your full name and postal address.

2. In 4-5 days after you have agreed to work for us you will start to receive checks/money orders made on your name from our customers in U.S.. Our customers use hospital funds and the checks are always covered. The payments are made for our products and services which have already been delivered.

3. You cash the checks/money orders at your bank using your pre-established account.

4. You deduct the 10% commission from the total amount of the check or money order that you receive and cash.

5. You send the remaining 90% minus transfer fees to our company as per our instructions to one of our offices. We have offices in almost all of Europe; we will instruct you where to send the balance. This means that the funds will not always be sent to our headquarters in U.K. You will not make the transfer on our company name. One of our employees will be the receiver for the funds. The methods we use for transferring funds are: wire transfers, money transfers, checks and money orders. Depending on our needs we will instruct you to send the funds using one of those methods.

6. After one month has passed since you signed the contract you will receive your first salary.



TECHNO HEALTHCARE is a privately owned company founded in 1954. The business is based in London at the heart of the UK motorway network and has developed from its origins, producing surgical needles, into a major business servicing the global healthcare market.

Today, TECHNO HEALTHCARE is building on the company's strong tradition for product research and development and is developing into one of the UK's leading healthcare s. The company has developed and markets products in the growing areas of sports medicine, spinal surgery and biomaterials and has an established international distribution base across Europe, America and the Far East.



We care to explain to you thoroughly the entire process that will possibly be the best job you will ever have. This job is possible because our company TECHNO HEALTHCARE has its headquarters in London, UK. As such we do not yet have stores or offices in the United States. Until we do we will always need representatives in the U.S. to take care of some financial matters. The problem we are facing is the time necessary for our company to clear the funds from checks and money orders paid by our customers from U.S. after they have received our products and/or services. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks including shipping to clear these checks in Europe. We need to clear the checks and money inside U.S. and then have the funds transferred to our company in U.K. by other means. This is where you can help us. It would speed up the process tenfold. We have already made a signed agreement with the U.S. officials and we are paying all the necessary taxes for our business. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part on the date you will receive your first salary. This job is official and legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today.



The process itself involves answering e-mails a couple of times per day and going to a bank. This job does not require any kind of experience. It only requires access to the Internet and knowledge to send e-mails. First step in this job is for you to wait at home for checks/money orders/cashier checks sent by our American customers on your name as per our instructions. For this to be possible we need your basic personal info such as full name and full address.

Hi....

Maybe you could email me something to help my little brother. He received 5 $450.00 money orders to my mothers work address and when he thought they were real...he want to cash them at Walmart...they honored and examined them and the manager checked them and cashed one for him. Later he went to a check cashing service to cash another and was quickly arrested and taken to jail with 2 felony charges. My mother had to pay a $500.00 bail for him and now he is in a real pickle. There was nothing he did other than cash this. The cops asked him how long had my brother and mother been making these money orders and passing them. AS if they had made them their selves. How long had they been running this fraud! My mother is 77 yrs old and my brother is crippled and in a real mess. Any suggestions? My mothers work number is 916-457-4014 her home # is 916-332-4137

THANK-you in advance,

Nancy Langsjoen

I answered an ad for work from home, original msg from: House of Bliss & Textiles Industry Ltd, 10 Newport Ave, Scofford Area, Oxford, L349HA, 44(0)7024079452, email jwsmooth@shaw.ca,did not hear for a while then got a reply from: Phil Bradley emailhouseofbliss25@yahoo.co.uk, stating check would be sent my way shortly, did not hear for several weeks,I had sent another email stating I wanted in writting that the check would be guarenteed to be good or I would not do this, shortly after that I received 4 money grams, I called moneygrams to verify the money grams were real and was told not to cash them they are not real. I have yet to hear from these people about them not receiving their money, but I'm sure I will get another email, I have a friend that got taken and is not paying the bank back, after she sent the money within hours the bank notified her that the check had a stop payment on it, and she now had to repay the money. They state in the emails to take 10% and fees for money gram from the total and wire the rest to a specific address the provide in the email.
