I have been had I got taken for $2925.00. This Alma Adams sent me a check in the amount shown and told me to cash it asap. I did not knowing about the return hold policy. I haven't herd back from him yet and I don't think I will. He cancelled the check and now my bank account reads a negitive amount of the $2925.00 I got screwed.

Here is the email that I rec'd. Too bad it's a fraud.

-----------------------------------------------------

Hello,

My name is Susan Patrick and I am an artist. I own a small enterprise
in
London (United Kingdom) I have been doing artwork since I was a
child, which gives me about 23 years of experience.

Most of my work is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color
pencils.I have recently added designing and creating artworks on the
computer. I have been selling my products for the last 2 years and have
had my work featured on various art exhibitions, cards, magazines and
so
on. I have sold in galleries and
to private collectors around the world.

I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art
works to Americans; they are always offering to pay me with US POSTAL
MONEY ORDERS, which is difficult for me to cash here in the United Kingdom.

I am looking for a representative in the States who will be working for
me
as a part time worker and I am willing to pay 10% for every
transaction,which wouldn't affect your present state of work. I need a
responsible and
reliable person who would help me receive payments from my customers in
the States, because the cost of coming to the States to get payments is
very expensive.

I am working on setting up a branch in the U.S pretty soon. But I need
a
representative who will be handling the payment aspect for now.
These payments will be in Money Orders and they would come to you in
your
name, so all you need do is cash the Money Orders, deduct your
percentage (10%) and wire the rest to me. It wouldn't cost you any
amount,
you are to
receive payments which will be sent to you by FedEx or USPS from my
business partners, which would come in form of Money Orders then you
are to cash them at your BANK only for safety reasons and send the cash
to
me via Western Union Money Transfer. All Western Union charges will be
deducted from the money.

Please get back to me with the following details below if you are
interested:

FIRST NAME:
LAST NAME:
ADDRESS:
CITY:
STATE:
ZIP CODE:
COUNTRY:
CELL PHONE NUMBER:
GENDER:
MARITAL STATUS:
AGE:
NATIONALITY:


ATTESTATION

According to how you have been briefed earlier by
me. You are required and mandated to receive payment on behalf of the
above-mentioned firm. You are to deduct 10% of all funds processed on a
particular order and forward the balance payment via Western Union
Money
Transfer.

You will notify me a week ahead if eventually you
want to discontinue this job so as to terminate all payment coming your
way to avoid conflict.

In agreement to this kindly append signature below.

Sign..................

NOTE
You are adviced to keep a detailed record of every transaction as our
Auditors will be needing these records from time to time for proper
accounts records purposes.


Regards,
Susan

What's the deal with Mark Anderson textiles?


2006-11-24 03:45:24 -
Dear friend,

I hope this mail doesn't come to you as an embarrassment as i receive
unsolicited mails sometimes,if it does kindly delete it and accept my
apology. The truth about it is that many individuals have failed to
understand the use for which the Internet is set for us to benefit, and
therefore some abuse the privilege it is meant to bring to all.

If i may ask,would you like to work online from home and get paid
weekly?

Markanderson Textiles needs a bookkeeper in the United States,Canada
Europe and Australia, so I want to know if you will like to work online
from home and get paid weekly without leaving or affecting your present
job? It's just that I presently run a textile and fabrics firm I
inherited from my late Dad here in the London UK and we need someone to
work for the company as a representative/book keeper.

My company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted
fabricsand traditional costume, which we have clients we supply weekly
in the States,Canada,Europe and Australia.
My clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of Direct
wire, and Cashiers cheque which is not readily casheable outside the
United States, so we need someone in the States,Canada, Europe and
Australia to work as our representative and assist us in processing the
payments from our clients and I will pay him/her a weekly salary.

The international money transfer tax for legal entities (companies) in
United Kingdom is 25%, whereas for the individual it is only 7%.There
is no sense for us to work this way, while tax for international money
transfer made by a private individual is 7% .That's why we need you!
We need agents to receive payment for our industrial rubber products
deduct their 10% and send the balance to us via Western Union Money
Transfer in UK while the tax shall be 7% instead of 25% which will
absolutely favour our company.

I await your response.

Warm Regards,
John Anderson(President)
Markanderson Textiles.

WELL SUPRISE, SUPRISE WHEN I INFORMED ALMA ADAMS FROM SUPRAMED INTERNATIONAL THAT A CHECK I HAD RECEIVED FROM AN ELLEN C MCREYNOLDS WAS RETURNED TO MY BANK BECAUSE IT WAS (REFER TO MAKER) IT'S THE LAST TIME I HEARD FROM HE/R BUT BEFORE I GOT NOTIFIED BY MY BANK THAT THE CHECK WAS NO GOOD THIS A ADAMS PERSON WAS REALLY PUSHING FOR ME TO "GET CHECKS CASHED FAST, WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG, WE HAVE MANY MORE ORDERS FOR YOU ON THE WAY, WHAT'S THE HOLD UP? AND MY FAVORITE "IT DOES STIPULATE IN YOUR CONTRACT THAT YOU WILL CASH THE CHECKS FAST USING ANY MEANS POSSIBLE" SO IF YOU DO ENGAGE IN ANY TYPE OF CHECK CASHING FOR ANYONE BE PREPARED TO PAY. I WAS EXTREMELY LUCKY DUE TO THE FACT THAT MY BANK AUTOMATICALLY PLACES ANY PERSONAL CHECK WHETHER ITS IN OR FROM OUT OF TOWN ON A 5 TO 7 BUSINESS DAY HOLD TO MY ACCOUNT WAS ON HOLD UNTIL THE CHECK WAS SUPPOSED TO CLEAR.
