This a scam! Why would the trust me and not family?

Reply to: rahman7324khalid@yahoo.es

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is khalid rahman I a merchant of Omani nationality I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone(not even myself)but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for.

But now I regret all this as I now know that here is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.

I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God has called me, I
have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well
as a few close friends.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I
do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the Oman,Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.

I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they
refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be
contended with what I have left for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of eighteen million dollars $18,000,000 that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad.
I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatche it to charity rganizations. I have set
aside 20% for you and for your time.

God be with you.

Mr Khalid Rahman.

People anytime you get money in the mail an you don't know why your getting it or someone has told you your uncle or grandparents died from the UK or Canada or Africa don't fall into this stupid scam.. They want your money if they send you a check to cash an want some of the money sent back to them western union or however it is a scammmmmm.. Would you send a total stranger money in the mail. NO..you wouldn't. Once you cash those it is you the one that has to pay the bank their money back an if you dont have it you will get charges against you... People don't earn money that easy. It is all a big scam these foriegners are pulling on the american people...They need to be caught an put in prison for it..

I am wanting to know about fake travelers cheque an how one can tell if they are fake or real.. I got a job offer from a man that wanted me to cash his travelers cheque an send him the money western union to the UK. I am a bit leary of this because it may be fake. how can i tell..He sent it to me with no name on it. I am the purchasers and the countersigner also. Is this the way that you do a travelers cheque. I have never had one. It is a Visa one.. let me know what you think I should do with it..

I put my house up for sale on infotube.net and I got a response from a "Dr Timothy Fuller" claiming that he wanted to purchase my house. At the time he said that he was in the UK doing some research and that he was going to have his "associate's" get in contact with me to do an inspection on my house, he asked me the bottom line price for the house and how much deposit he would have to give me to take it off the market. I e-mailed him and told him that we would need at least a $5000.00 deposit and a signed contract. He agreed and said that he was going to send his inspector to check out the house and he wanted me to pay them out of the funds that he was going to send me in the amount of $7700.00. $5000.00 for the deposit and $2700.00 for the inspector. I thought that it was kind of odd that an inspection would run $2700.00, so I started to do some research that's when I found this site. We have been back and forth on e-mail and supposedly he is now in Asia doing some more "RESEARCH". Has anyone else heard about this guy?? Please respond if you have.

Hey all - ( I posted this message on another website - below is there response.)

I too received the email from careerbuilder.com for Global Inc. Healthcare UK and responded. I was hesitant, but gave it a shot since they didn't ask for account numbers. I've since received a check for
$2920.00 and am awaiting deposit instructions. I'm glad to see all these posts on the scamming company. I tried to google the company before and got nothing. So, moving forward; what should I do with this
fradulant check? And what do I need to do to protect myself? Lesson learned: If it sounds to good to be true, it is!

The website response:
Whatever you do, do not attempt to deposit or cash the check. You could be arrested or imprisoned for check fraud. The easiest thing to do is destry the check and cut off contact with the criminals. You can
also try contacting the bank on the check and report the fraudulent check, but it is possible the bank information is not correct.

P.S. I tried calling the bank phone number on the check and there was no answer.

My mother in law just received a USPS priority mail envelope containing 4 US Postal Money Orders for $675.00 each. They do not have the water marks, and we know they are fakes, but she is not selling anything and we are wondering how this scam works? We have been sent fake cashiers check when we were selling a truck and turned them over to our bank as such, but how does sending fake cashiers check to an individual who is not selling anything benefit the scammer?

I've just received a MoneyGram International Money Order drawn in the Citizens State Bank of Clara City, Clara City, MN. Back in 2004 there was a run of phoney MGs at that bank. Has it begun again. Anybody?

After agreeing good-naturedly to be a "money transfer agent" I find myself inundated with "queer" financial instruments of several kinds, WalMart MoneyGrams, Money Gram International Money Order, AAA Visa Travelers Cheques, etc. In some cases I can spot errors in the printing to ascertain that the document in hand is a fake, but it would really help to be able to compare these purported financial instruments with good photos of the real things. I suppose that such photos on the web might help the counterfeiters, but on the other hand they who are intent on counterfeiting these instruments must already be working from the real thing in the first place. Does anyone know the links to the sites for which I am searching?
