More E-mails from Alma Adams:

Dear Representative,
This is an update of payments that you must receive in the following days from our customers.
There is a cashier check with a value of $2,860.00 :
JONATHON CARMEAN
Please let us know when you receive the check so we can give you instructions. Do not go to the bank until you receive our confirmation. Please reply here. Thank you, Alma Adams

Dear Representative,
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FULLY AND VERY CAREFULLY:
After you cash the funds please deduct your commission (10%). Also deduct all the other fees involved from cashing the funds and transferring the money to us from the remaining 90% and send us the balance. After you have completed the tasks above, scan the Western Union receipt and send them by e-mail to us. To send the funds to us you have to:
1. Go to www.westernunion.com and click on Find agent location to find the nearest Western Union office.
2. Go to the Western Union office and send the funds to us as a money transfer. When the Western Union employee asks you if you know the person that you are sending the money to you have to respond 'Yes'. It is their policy and if you respond 'No' they might not complete the transfer and that will cause delays. If they ask you why you are sending the money reply that is in personal interests, same applies if they ask you what your relationship with the receiver is. This is our Company employee that you are sending the funds to. Also, as we keep your information from other parties and never gives it out to anyone so we would like you to do the same and keep our relationship private.
3. When you send the money, please calculate the final fees that Western Union will ask you and send the payment without the fees amount.
Here you have all the info that you need in transfer to make the payment:
Please fill in the following info under Receivers when you will complete the Western Union form:
Receiver First Name: CELSO
Receiver Last Name: AVILA
City: LONDON
Country: UK ( UNITED KINGDOM )
You need to send the total - cashing fees and WU fees. Please be very careful and verify if the Western Union employee wrote the correct names for sender and receiver because they make mistakes very often and so we can prevent a lot of problems that would cost us all time and money. After you will make the payment, you will get (two numbers containing 10 digits) the tracking numbers. You must e-mail us:
1. The exact name and address of the sender of the money (the sender name and address you wrote on the form at that you used at Western Union to send the money. This is a must, it is your info that you wrote on the Western Union money transfer form and it is needed to pick up the money)
2. The Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) very carefully please!
3. The total amount without fees in Pounds. Please ask the Western Union employee what was the total amount sent in Pounds after the conversion.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU PROVIDE US THE 3 INFORMATIONS WE NEED SO THAT OUR EMPLOYEE CAN PICK UP THE FUNDS Before you send the information you can verify here: https://wumt.westernunion.com/asp/orderStatus.asp if the information is correct.
Your fast response is appreciated.
Thank you, Alma

I am so freaking out now. I received the same e-mails from a Alma Adams.. I did receive my first check but it was not from a Ellen Mcreynolds, instead it was from a JONATHON CARMEAN
and my bank did not hold the check, which i am surprised at. They cashed it. The only reason i took this job(scam) is because i have applied and put my resume on monster.com so i thought it was for real but i am finding out that it is not. what do i do now? Here are some e-mails from them:

Dear Representative,
At this point it is up to you to cash the check tomorrow or the day after tomorrow at the latest. Use your existing bank account where you made transactions before to clear the check. Only after you process this order will you receive more. We cannot send you more than 1-2 checks per week in the first month. Exception is only if you process orders very fast (under two business days). In this case you will receive many orders. You need to use any method available to clear the checks faster. After one or more checks clear you need to go to the bank and withdraw the funds from your account, take the money with you and e-mail us for further instructions. After we receive the confirmation that the money are in your possession (not in your bank account), we will e-mail you back with clear instructions on how to send the money to us. This is because we have several locations to cash our funds and we do not yet know which will be assigned to you. Do not forget that it is up to you how much money you can earn. The idea is simple if you send the money fast you will receive increasingly more checks and earn a lot more for yourself. All the fees will be paid by us. That means that you will deduct any and all fees that you had to pay from our 90% before sending the funds to us. You will never pay any kind of fee out of your own money.

Thank you, Alma

This is in view of our not having an office presently in the USA.

About the job:We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a new market (being the US). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion.We have decided to deliver the products upfront, it's very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent.Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as it possible. Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United US without first registering the company name.

Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold.

For fear of loosing the customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash
these payments from the US soon enough, as international Checks take about 14 working days for cash to be made available.

We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays*Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process.

You are not involved in any sales. Our makes direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX/UPS).The customer receives and checks the products. After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products.About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified Checks and Money orders based on the amount involved.Your Task We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem.

Your tasks are:
1. Receive payment from Customers
2. Cash Payment at your Bank
3. Deduct 7% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed

offices you will be contacted to send payment to.

Send to us: 2790.00 USD First month you will have 15-20 transactions on 3000.00-4000.00 USD so you may calculate your income.For example 18 transactions on 3500.00 USD gives you 4410.00 USD Plus your basis monthly salary is 1000.00 USD

Total: 5410.00 USD per month After establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more.Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your bank or other Cashing Services.Deduct your weekly salary and forward the balance to the company via western union money transfer We understand it is an unusual and incredible job position.

How can you tell if a moneyorder is fake or not?

I have received several emails about assisting in receiving funds from deceased "clients". I actually even humored the first one I received and acutally made great progress in the process of completing the transaction. Once I received the second email from a different person asking for my assistance I became suspicious of it autheticity. I did a google search of the name of the person and came across several warnings of these scams. I must admit I was a little disturb at the fact that there are people in the world that are so cold hearted and devious that they would do something like this, then I thought again, the world is a constant battle between good and evil. There is not much, but alot that we all can do to put a stop to things like this. It is sad though that we can no longer trust our fellow mankind with anything anymore though. A warning to all please take caution in who you allow yourself to associate with. The results of a bad interaction could be devastating.

PLEASE SEE ATTACHMENTS FOR THE CONTRACT



Dear Candidate,



We will never ask you for bank name, bank account number, routing number, credit card, passwords, ssn number etc. If anyone asks for those on our behalf please do not give out this info. This is to ensure that you will not be the victim of an identity theft case.



After you receive the checks/money orders/cashier checks you will have to go to the bank to cash them. The most important objective is for you to speed up the cashing process in any way possible. Keep in mind that we have already delivered our products and we need to get the funds to maintain our cash flow. We are covering you financially should any problems arise up to the full amounts on the checks you processed. There is no need for a special bank account to make this happen and creating a new account will slow down the process. After you have cash in hand you will have to contact us at the same e-mail address and then you will receive additional instructions on how to send the money to us. We cannot provide a phone number yet because we have many collaborators and momentarily we lack the technical support. For basic information we will have to use e-mails. Phone support is only for more sensitive issues that might appear after signing the contract. We will support any fees involved from receiving, cashing and transferring the money to our company. Your commission and salary are not subject to any fee deduction. The 10% off of each check/money order/cashier check and the monthly $900 are your net income.





To begin this job we need your FULL NAME (IMPORTANT: Enter your business name instead if you want to use it, we cannot change it later) AND ADDRESS (your postal address) via email for payments that will be mailed (shipped) to you and a FAX or a scanned copy (jpeg/jpg only) of your signed contract via e-mail. Please follow these instructions exactly; everything that is written in red is a must:

E-mail address:

Full name (do not use initials):

Address:

City, State:

Zip code:

Phone number:





2. Fill in the empty fields in the contract at paragraph 1.2, sign it and send it to us.





To do that you have the following options:



a. Fill in the empty fields inside the contract, send it by e-mail and the last page print it, sign it and send it by fax.



b. Fill in the empty fields in the contract, then print and sign the last page, scan it or take a digital photo (jpeg/jpg only) and send the whole contract back by e-mail.



c. Fill in the empty fields inside the contract, print the whole contract, sign the last page and send everything through fax.



d. In case the e-mails you send to us bounce back we apologize. Our e-mails are sometimes full because of incoming e-mails so please send all the information by fax.



IMPORTANT: Please use your computer or typewriter to fill in the empty fields inside the contract. If that is not possible please fill in by hand but legible. After you fill in the contract complete the same info below and send it to us by e-mail.



IMPORTANT:



-You have to be at least 21 years old.

-You have to be an American citizen, legal resident or immigrant in U.S.

-You must have an existing active U.S. bank account



Due to the fact that we receive tens of faxes per day please confirm that you have done so and also send your personal info that you filled in the contract via e-mail.



In order to start this job, your response is expected today and also your signature (last page of contract signed). Reply at this e-mail address with the subject: AGREED WITH ALL TERMS OF THE REPRESENTATIVE CONTRACT. Please see attachment for the CONTRACT.



Check the information to be sure because this is the address that will be used to send the checks to. It is not enough to just send the fax; you need to send this confirmation by e-mail also to prevent any mistakes.



Please reply here if you have any questions. This is the e-mail address we use for receiving contracts. Thank you and we hope to collaborate with you as soon as possible,
