This is in regard to a 'job' i was offered. Here is what the email says and it may be an identiy theft/money order fraud. I have attched the email for any of you job seekers who were like me headhunted for this job. After careful research of the company I was directed to here.

As a reminer:

My name is Micheal Landine, I am the owner of the Landine Fabric Company. We are recently
established company based in the UK. My company is involved in the production and distribution
of quality textiles and materials. In the past year, there has been an increase in the number
of companies such as mine that offer services to clients in the international market. With
most of my clients being located outside of the UK, I am in need of representatives in my
foreign markets including the North America (USA and Canada) to assist me in the handling
phone line and or the processing of payments. Entry level position are available. Applicants
must be 18+ with a high school diploma. Must have access to the internet.

Most of my clients make payments for my goods with international money orders and cheques.
These money order and cheques are not easily cashable within the United Kingdom. It is for
this reason that I am in need of a representative in your region to aid in the processing of
these payments. The payments usually fall in the range of five thousand to ten thousand dollars.
As a representative, you will earn a ten percent commission on every payment you process. Since
payments are made to my company on a weekly basis, you will be able to earn about five hundred
to a thousand dollars a week.

It is a very simple process:

As a representative, you will be responsible for receiving payments from my clients. These
payments are usually sent by courier mail. As soon as you receive a payment, you cash it in
your bank and forward the balance to the company (after you deduct you commission) by a
Western Union money transfer.

BEFORE WE CAN COMMENCE TRANSACTIONS, I WILL NEED TO SATISFY ALL PROCEDURAL REQUIREMENTS.
I WILL NEED SOME OF YOUR CONTACT DETAILS. ONCE YOUR INFORMATION HAS BEEN PROCESSED AND
APPROVED, I WILL FOWARD IT TO MY CLIENTS IN YOUR REGION WHO WILL ISSUE PAYMENTS IN THE FORM
OF MONEY ORDERS AND SEND THEM TO BY COURIER.

Requirements:

Your full name, address, and phone number.

Once we receive and process your information, we will forward it to our
clients who will make the payments to you as the company's representative.

A letter of employment will be sent to you from my company. Once you receive the letter,
you must sign, scan and send it back to the company. You must also send an acceptance letter
and a scan copy of your identification. Once your information is confirmed, you will be given
an employee number.

As was stated before, I will notify my clients who will be begin sending payments to you as
the company's representative. I will notify you of all payments coming your way. I will also
give you all the necessary information needed for you to send the payments to the company
(AFTER YOU HAVE DEDUCTED YOUR COMMISSION).

I received an email from Monster.com about an online, at home job for a Beneficiary, Alma Adams of Intermed International. From the description of the job and the company that Mr. Adams sent me, I decided that it would be an easy task so I signed the contract.

Now, after having done more research, I have found out that this person claiming to be Alma Adams is not who he says he is and is not part of the Intermed International, Inc. However, I didn't find this information out until I already received one check and deposited it into my account. Now, I don't even know if the check was real or a fraud and I don't know what to do.

Christian convert,suffering from long time cancer of the breast.My
late husband was killed during the Gulf war, and during the period of
our marriage we had a son who was also killed in a cold blood during
the Gulf war.My late husband was very wealthy and after his death,I
inherited all his business and wealth.I selected you after visiting
the website for this purpose and prayed over it,I am willing to donate
the sum of $18.5000,000.00 Million US Dollars to the

My beloved one in christ,

Greetings to you in the most wonderful name of our Lord and

Johnson,I am 51 years old from Netherlands,I am deaf andsuffering
from a long time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my brain,from
allindication my conditions is really deteriorating and it is
quiteobvious that,according to my doctors they have advised me that i
maynot live for the next two months,this is because the cancer
stagehas gotten to avery bad stage.

I was brought up from a motherless babies home, was married to my
latehusband for twenty years without a child.My husband died in
afatal motor accident.Before his death we were true Christians. Since
his
death I decided not to re-marry,I sold all my inherited
belongings and deposited all the sum of $18.5million dollars with a
Security Company.

Presently, this money is still with them and the management just
wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for
keeping
it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to
receive it on my behalf since I can not come over because of my illness
or they get it confisticated.

Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I
havebeenundergoingtreatment for cancer of the lungs. I have since
lost myability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a
fewmonths to live.

It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any
organisation of your choice and distributed each year among the
charityorganization,the poor and the motherless babies home where i
come from.I want you God fearing, to also use this money to fund
churches,orphanages and widows.I took this decision, before i rest in
peace because my time will soon be up.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of
theSecurityCompany.I will also issue you a letter of authority that
willmprove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me
that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.

I shall wait at your prayerful reply.

SCAM FAKE MONEY ORDERS Rcvd 4 Walmart MoneyGram for $850ea Wf National Bank South Central Fairbault, MN post marked from Northern Ireland. The person calls themselves Sunday Johnson, claims she has a hearing problem, and that is why the phone has a funny sound. They are using some sort of device on the phone. This is fraud. They tell you to immediately deposit the money and they will send someone to pick up whatever item you are selling. You pay out of your account thinking the money orders are real and then the bank tells you later your money orders are fake. You are out the money. Not only the fraud person asks you to send the balance to somewhere in Africa. Beware dont do it.

Does any one know about a service of cashing money orders and wiring money to another person that is actully true, not fake. Has this system ever been used as true or has it always been fake.

I was trying to sell an item on tractorhouse.com and got an e-mail from Rita Plank at susartworldinc. I had run into this type of scam before when trying to sell a horse. She said her client in Finland would stop by and pick up the item. What she didn't know was that the item was a 6 ton tractor. HER MISTAKE!
Watch Out For Her
