there has been a few women that tell me that they are in love with me, but let me say this ,it is all lies. i've had a few of them sent me money orders for the amount of 920.00 and 980.00 and want me to cash it for them here, again this came to me why not cash them there, they have banks there too! well anyway they are fake money orders, so guys dont fall for those lines of how much they love you and what ever else they might say including a sick mother ,or that they are all alone.


2006-08-29 14:11:04 -
LINDSAY!! DO NOT send them that money. I fell for a similar scam. These cashier's checks and money orders look real and even pass through the bank. If you wire this person the money, your bank will soon be contacting you telling you this was a counterfeit transaction. You WILL be responsible for EVERY dollar!

I have received the same emails from Alma Adams. I have signed the contract and I have already received the first check. How is this a scam if I have the check. I got suspicious this morning and started looking into the company and found this site, but now I have no idea what to do! I have a check in my bank account but what do I do with it? Do I send them the money like they asked? HELP! Advice would be great right now!

I received an offer today from Orthomed, formally Surgimed inviting me to cash checks and retain 10% for my effort. I declined the offer This is a great web site. I thought I would be the 1st to expose the scam but others have discovered them as well. Keep up the good work folks
Thank you

2006-08-29 09:36:55 -
Hello
I received also an email also from a Mrs. Alam Adams.
She sent me the contract and all that .
Looks pretty legitime.
Another email explaining what the company does.
Is any one there that knows better if it really is a scam?


2006-08-28 21:59:18 -
Is it or isn't it?

This is from Alma Adams . According to your site this is a fraudulent company. Thety apparently are trolling Monster.com and going through a company called Innovative Careers :

Innovation/ USA / Careers



Main Office: 631-862-4612

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.

Before we start you have to understand what our company is looking for and if you feel that this type of job is good for you follow the instructions below this introduction. If you have one free hour daily (not including weekends) you are welcome to join today. Our job is a flextime, flex-place opportunity designed to fit around your family's income and time needs. You can earn from $50,000 up to $200,000 a year (depends on our sales) and more after one year working with us. Our company can guarantee $5,500 every month income in your first year of work.

Here you have the description of this job in simple steps:

1. You agree and sign the contract, send us your full name and postal address.

2. In 4-5 days after you have agreed to work for us you will start to receive checks/money orders/cashier checks made on your name from our customers in U.S. and Canada. Our customers use hospital funds and the checks are always covered. The payments are made for our products and services which have already been delivered.

3. You cash the checks/money orders/cashier checks at your bank using your pre-established account.

4. You deduct the 10% commission from the total amount of the check or money order that you receive and cash.

5. You send the remaining 90% minus transfer fees to our company as per our instructions to one of our offices. We have offices in almost all of Europe; we will instruct you where to send the balance. This means that the funds will not always be sent to our headquarters in U.K. You will not make the transfer on our company name. One of our employees will be the receiver for the funds. The methods we use for transferring funds are: wire transfers, money transfers, checks and money orders. Depending on our needs we will instruct you to send the funds using one of those methods.

6. After one month has passed since you signed the contract you will receive your first salary.



SURGIMED INTERNATIONAL is a privately owned company founded in 1954. The business is based in London at the heart of the UK motorway network and has developed from its origins, producing surgical needles, into a major business servicing the global healthcare market.

Today, SURGIMED INTERNATIONAL is building on the company's strong tradition for product research and development and is developing into one of the UK's leading healthcare groups. The company has developed and markets products in the growing areas of sports medicine, spinal surgery and biomaterials and has an established international distribution base across Europe, America and the Far East.



We care to explain to you thoroughly the entire process that will possibly be the best job you will ever have. This job is possible because our company SURGIMED INTERNATIONAL has its headquarters in London, UK. As such we do not yet have stores or offices in the United States and Canada. Until we do we will always need representatives in the U.S. to take care of some financial matters. The problem we are facing is the time necessary for our company to clear the funds from checks, money orders and cashier checks paid by our customers from U.S. and Canada after they have received our products and/or services. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks including shipping to clear these checks in Europe. We need to clear the checks, money orders and cashier checks inside U.S. and then have the funds transferred to our company in U.K. by other means. This is where you can help us. It would speed up the process tenfold. We have already made a signed agreement with the U.S. officials and we are paying all the necessary taxes for our business. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part on the date you will receive your first salary. This job is official and legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today.

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.

It does not matter if you already have a job or not if you have two hours to spare each working day.

- 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);

- 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.

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.

Also, we are keen to know about your skills in contacting other people and above all we are looking for candidates that are ready to work and seek to self improve all the time. Our company just started this program and we need personnel loyal to our company and our program. We believe that we represent an excellent opportunity for everybody, a chance to start a new career without much knowledge but with great perspectives.

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 inU.S.A. (legal residents and immigrants can also apply) and have an active bank account.

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.

Dear,
Would you like to work online from home and get paid weekly ?
MILLER TEXTILES needs a book-keeper in the states, 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 in the UK and we need someone to work for the company as a representative/book keeper in the states.
Our company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted fabrics and traditional costume which we have clients we supply weekly in the states.


2006-08-28 17:44:42 -
This sounds like a scam. Anyone know better?


2006-08-28 16:00:22 -
It looks like Alma Adams has switched "companies" from "Surgimed" for "Orthomed International". He/She changed sex also. At Surgimed Alma is a she and at Orthomed Alma is a he. Same story about cashing checks and money orders and then sending them 90% of the funds by wire. There is no web presence for ither of these companies except for fraud web sites.
