I too have received emails with offers of jobs, but I asked my attorney how hard it would be for a NON-USA company to open a USA bank account. Below is what he told me.

He advised me there is no reason a company from outside the US would need an agent to collect and process checks or money orders for them, because its very easy for any legitimate company to open their own bank account in the US for customers to send payment too and even easier for them to set up a paypal or clickbank type account on their website and get their money almost immediately through credit card payments. It would cost them about 5% to get their money directly from paypal and converted into their currency. So the only reason a company would need to have an agent is because its a fraudulant company and its all a SCAM!!!

Hope this helps!!!

scam

I almost fell for the Global Group Healthcare because I'm actually in the business of looking for a job. When something like that pops up, I can't help but do some research though. I considered the position to be legitimate because it came from Monster, but when it came to faxing or emailing all of my personal information through a 1099 tax form, all the red flags went off. NEVER sign over the rights to your name or SS number to someone you don't know (or have ever even met)! Always research down to the smallest detail...if it's a scam, someone already knows about it!


2007-02-09 13:51:23 -
i received a letter stating i have won 68,000 dollars and enclosed is a check for 4960.00 to cover tax fees and clearance fees


2007-02-09 11:22:03 -
I can not believe that I almost fell for the "Carol Gilroy Scam" I was so close but I went to find them on the internet and get their phone number just to make sure they were legit and I could find nothing that matched up. So then I did a search for her name and came across this message board.

Thank god for all of you and I am so sorry for those of you that had to go through it.


2007-02-09 01:13:34 -
Here are some of the scams that are out there:
RAC motoring services/"James Warwick"
General Medcare Group/"Abigail Sarah Marie Acton
RICHARDCOOKHOMEFURNISHERS/"Richard Cook"
Political Activist/"James Olfori"
Supreme Textiles Industries/ "Lukas Nakos"
There are many others. Please do not fall for these scams. Contact the F.B.I. or Secret Service. Post warnings wherever you can. Tell your friends and family.
Don't be ashamed if you thought these were real.
Thanks

Beware, it looks like General Medcare Group is now going under the assumed name of Global Group Healthcare, not to be confused with the US company, Global Healthcare Group out of PA. I received a badly written email today from "Carol Gilroy" from said company. This came from Monster.com

I recently received a email from an 'so-called' attorney in Malayia stating that a man with my surname died in Malaysia and had no next of kin. His will supposely left the entire fortune of 19 million to someone with the same surname. This attorney also tells me that he can provide all of the necessary death certificates and legal documents to back up his claim. He also wants 60% of this money and will give me 30% to seal the deal. The other 10% goes for expense incurred. Has anyone else seen or heard of this? Is this a scam?

Thanks in advance

Lady Peggy Morrison must be getting desperate cos she has upped the ante...i got an email saying "she" had left me 20 million...nice idea but highly improbable as i have never heard of her ...alarm bells went off and when i emailed her back her "Barrister" Terry Williams wanted my full name, address, date of birth, nationality, and bank details...after a long hard think about it (all of 3 seconds) i did not reply...like the old saying...
IF IT SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE....you know the rest....

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY LARGE IMPROBABLE OFFERS OF MONEY NO MATTER HOW DESPERSTE YOU ARE..

I recently signed up with general medcare group to become one of their representatives in th states. I received a personal check from one of their customers and my bank could not process it because it was drawn on an account that was closed. I have been trying to e mail the company to let them know the situation and no one is getting back to me. I t makes me wonder if this is on th up and up or just another scam.
