I got this e-mail a few days ago and like a jerk I signed the contract. It sounds like money laundering to me it did from the get go but I'm desperat for money. I wish I had looked this up before the contract.but atleast now I know if I get any money orders or cashiers checks not to bother trying to cash them. You know I'm sick I can't work orleave the house all the time. It's been difficult for my mind why do these people bother with this crap!!! Oh and should I be worried am I going to get money orders? If I did whats the point for them to even send them. I just don't get it

Hey guys watch out for this one now.
Dear

This is Mr. Peter Nosa, and this mail comes to you in my place. I'm very happy and obliged to inform you about my success in getting the funds transferred under the co-operation of a new partner from London, United Kingdom.

Tell him that i have instructed you to contact him for the money, and ask him to send you the total sum of US$500,000,00, which I have drawn in your name and kept for you as compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this endeavour. I did appreciate your efforts very much, and that's why you have to accept my token and keep the matter to yourself. So feel free and get in touch with my Secretary Mr. mashawe williams, and advice him on how and where to send the amount to you quickly.

Please, do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy together after all the troubles incured during the claim. As at the moment, I am very busy here in London because of the projects which I and my new partner are having at hand in U.K.

MY RESPONSE
I was told to contact you about some money that is set aside for me? What do i do now?

HIS RESPONSE
Attn:

I am in receipt of your email. Yeah, Mr.Peter nosa left a cashier cheque of $500,000,00 us dollars, which he instructed me to send to you as soon as you request for it. currently the cheque is here with me in Nigeria and i will mail the cheque to you as soon as we arranged for the mailing process.

For your information, you are to bear the cost of mailing the cheque to you, which is going to cost you US$220 dollars as the cheque will be mailed via diplomatic courier service(FEDEX), and Mr.peter nosa did not leave any money for the mailing of the cheque.

So, I am expecting you to send me the above mentioned amount for the cost of mailing the Cheque and as well re-comfirm your mailing address so that I will mail it to you immediately I receive the money from you, besides, if you request i should send a scanned copy to you via email, i wouldn't mind, but be advised that Cheques are valid for only 3 months.

Send the money to me with the Name
NAME: MASHAWE DAFE LUCK
ADDRESS: LAGOS/NIGERIA
TEXTS QUESTION: TO WHO
TEXTS ANSWER: MASHAWE

and send the payment information such as sender's name, control number, text question and answer to enable me pick it up from the western union office here. i will send the cheque as soon as you update me with the money transfer control number of the payment of US$220 dollars only.

Is intermed int'l job a scam?


2006-10-12 16:55:10 -
Thank you all for putting this email on the website. I too have just received 2 checks for $950 each - Walmart money orders for $350 more than I was requesting for the dogs I am selling. The person is posing as a deaf person and contacting me via relay operator. I emailed the person this morning to inform him that I got the checks but would not send the dogs until the checks cleared. He became indignant that I would even suggest he was doing something illegal to his fellow man. Anyway after reading your emails and getting a better understanding of how this works, I emailed him and told him to cease all communication with me immediately. Thanks to everyone that has shared this information. However, I had initially given him my home address. Should I be concerned about my safety?


2006-10-12 09:07:59 -
I have received and unfortunately, "fell" for the scam. Have not received anything in the mail as of yet. What authorities should it be reported to?

Subject: The best job available from www.Monster.com for 40 representatives.










Dear Jobseeker,

This offer was sent to you in response to your resume on www.monster.com.

The job we are offering requires only two hours per day during which you will check your e-mail and go to your bank. You will be given a position of representative within our company which means that you will be a collaborator and not an actual employee. There is no experience required; only the knowledge of using an e-mail account and a bank account. It does not matter if you already have a job or not if you have two hours to spare each working day.

What is required of you in order to be eligible for this job:

- Honesty, responsibility and dedication to this new line of work;
- An existing active bank account that you will use to cash money orders and checks (no information is required about your bank account);
- Access to the internet and a small amount of free time every day in order to check your e-mail twice per day (once in the morning and again in the evening).

What we offer during this job:

- Flexible working time: you chose what hours you want to work;
- Working at home: you only need to check your e-mail and make trips to your bank;
- Professional support via e-mail;
- No selling involved; no kit to buy, we will not charge you anything, you will not handle any merchandise;
- Minimum pay: $5,500 (from commissions and a $900 monthly salary);
- Commission: 10% off of every money order/check that you cash, instantly money in hand that you will deduct from the cashed amount. If you receive a check of $1,000.00 your net income is $100.00, our company supports any fees. You can receive a maximum of 3 checks/money orders per day which will earn you between $300 and $900 cash in hand each day.

You do not need to worry that you will expose your bank account. We will never ask you for sensitive information regarding your bank account and you will not send wire transfers. You will only cash checks and send the funds through other means that are just as safe as a wire transfer. There are a number of options and all of them will be done at our expense.

If you are interested our staff will send detailed information about the contract which you must sign in order to get started. We reserve the right to keep you on probation for the first month, meaning that we will decide at the end of the first month whether you will be a permanent employee or not.

We are confident that you will make the right decision and hope to hear from you soon.

IMPORTANT:

-You must be over 21 years old.
-You need to live in U.S.A. (legal residents and immigrants can also apply) and have an active bank account.

If you meet these conditions please contact us by replying at this e-mail address to receive the contract and detailed information about this job.

Thank you, Alma

I fell for the scam


2006-10-11 16:14:07 -
ditto, on the "Alma Adams" scam. Due diligence people!


2006-10-11 14:14:18 - AceArc
Crystal,
that's definitely a scam and you should label it spam, it will be automatically deleted and that email will be reported. Don't fall for it, anything that deals with 1) sweepstakes or 2)transfering money or 3)you giving up your details in any way shape or form; IS A SCAM!!

Bump up your email security, if you scroll down I let you know how to do that, you seem to have yahoo, what you would need to do is click into email, log on, and look at your upper right hand corner you should see something called 'Options' click on that and on Spam Mail, once you click on Spam Mail---set it up for security away from spam, you can delete your spam mail. Be forewarned that a few addy's can slip through the cracks, just label them as spam as well and you shouldn't recieve mail from that address again---although they are known to change name and address. Just keep doing it, and don't give into the scam.

They are set up to put you in debt, and threaten you're livelihood.

If you would just prefer to get ultimate security, I suggest getting a free hotmail account or an msn account. Hotmail is free but since hotmail is provided by msn the features would be similar, one free and one paid. The important thing is when you click on options for hotmail or msn, you should see a label entitled Junk E-mails, click on that and get extra security where ONLY emails on a list you provide will be able to send you email while all others will be sent to junk email and then subsequently deleted.

So for real and ultimate security from spamming scam ie. Phishing emails...that's the best bet!!
