I received an email from surgimed international is this a fraud company?


2006-08-23 10:15:42 -
I received the same e-mail from Alma Adams and then she sent a contract when I asked for more info. Beware, this company dos not exist... It is not that easy to amke $5500 a month when most people have to work hard for it... money doesn't come easily...

Beware of e-mails using the Monster.com name (they used the actual registered logo, copyright mark and all) from this Alma Adams of Surgimed! I almost fell for it for about a second. She claimed that she was responding to a resume that my husband had posted (which he didn't). Fortunately I did a search on Monster first, with no matches, then found this website. Thank you for saving me!!!

Hello....wow am so glad that I decided to use search engine and look up Sus Art World, London....guess what I got? This website! And looked thru some of the messages that you all published about fraud mail and all that, came across one that is exactly the same email I got from Sus Art World, London...only difference was their names. Let me copy and paste the letter to show you that these people or one person is using different names in the same letter so hope those who receive this letter will recognize that it is a scam! Here it goes....

SUS ART WORLD

OFFICE
34 Parliament Street,
York, YO18SG,UK
Email: susworld_art@yahoo.co.uk

Dear Friend,

My name is Mrs Susan Harrison, I am an artist with my husband Tommy
Harrison,We own Sus Art World in London(United Kingdon) I live in
London United Kingdom,with my two kids,four cats, one dog and the love
of my life my husband Mr. Tommy Harrison.

It is definitely a full house, I have been doing artwork since I was a
small child That gives me about 23 years of experience, I majored in
art in high school and took a few college art courses Most of my work
is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils while my
hunsband made use of clay.

I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer,
I have been selling my art for the last 3 years and have had my work
featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines,I have sold in
galleries and to private collectors from all 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 with MONEY
ORDER, CASHIER CHEQUE AND GIFT CHEQUE,which is difficult for me to cash
here in London United Kingdom.

I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working
for me as a partime worker and i will be willing to pay 10% for every
transaction,which wouldn't affect ur present state of work,someone who
would help me recieve payments from my customers in the states,i mean
someone that is responsible and reliable,because the cost of coming to
the state and getting payments is very expensive,i am working on
setting up a branch in the state,so for now i need a representative in
the united state who will be handling the payment aspect for our
company.

These payments are in money order, cashier cheque and gift cheque and
they would come to you in your name if you are willing to assist as a
representative, so all you need to do is cash the money, deduct your
percentage and Western Union Charges then wire the rest back to us.

But the problem i have is trust,But i have my way of getting anyone
that gets away with our money,i mean the FBI branch in Washington gets
involve.

It wouldnt cost you any amount,you are to receive payments which will
be sent to you by fedex or ups from my business patners, which would
come in form of a money order then u are to cash it and send the cash
to me via Western Union.

NOTE:All charges will be deducted from the money so you are rest
assured that you wouldnt send a dime out of your personal money.
If you are interested,please get back to me by sending the following

1.Full Name
2.Home Address
3.Mobile and Home Phone Number
4.0ccupation
5.Age
as soon as possible via email at (susworld_art@yahoo.co.uk) Regards

Thanks for your assistant and God bless,

Susan& Eric Harrison-Justain.
Director of SUS ART WORLD INC,
London, United Kingdom.

The Surgimed Intl scam sent the first check for 2860 from someone in MD and mailed it from NY. Check was from Randy Dale Fender.


2006-08-21 22:26:55 -
I received a message from Alma at Surgimed offering me a job cashing checks from the UK and sending the money to them. They say they guarantee the funds will be covered, and that they will provide a 1099 tax form as well. Can you please advise if this is legal or if it is illegal, and whether or not you know if this company is legitimate or if it's a scam. Sounds like a great job, but I want to be sure.
Thank you.

I was recently scammed by someone who wanted me to cash some travelers cheques and western union the money to London and Nigeria. I am now having to pay back all of this money I sent them in order to prevent going to jail. I received emails similar to the ones posted on here requesting the same info and asking for the same services. My advice to people is not to release any personal info. to anyone and do not cash any cheques/money orders until a bank has verified they are real. Does anyone know what I can do about this in order to get some of my money back?


2006-08-21 19:01:27 -
What ever she ask DO NOT send her any information or receive anything from her. She is scamming everyone she contacts and you will have to pay for it in the end, not her.


2006-08-21 16:19:04 -

I received a suspicious offer for employment in cashing checks for Orthomed International at 345 Oxford Street, W1N 0BY London
It sounded suspicious so I googles for info and found out about this fraud alert. The individual on the email sent to me and the "contract" they wanted me to sign is Alma Adams.


2006-08-21 15:13:46 -
Angelita,

I would not trust this scheme if I were you. This sounds like the same thing as what we got, but they changed their name from Alma Adams to Alma Davis. If it appears too good to be true, it usually is.

Be careful. My worry is that the checks you recieved will probably be rejected in a couple weeks. It can take up to 2 weeks sometimes to make sure a check is legit. This is because it could be false for many reasons. You can just return any further checks to the sender. If the checks turn up to be fraud, your bank account could be closed by your bank or otherwise frozen for a short period for investigation. I would not cash any of the checks if I were you.


2006-08-21 14:08:05 -
this is angelita again, it is regarding surgimed i recieved my 2nd and 3rd e-mail fr alma davis, stating a money order of $999.00, $890.00 and $791.00 is on its way to me. the 3rd e-mail is stating there is another one coming , it is a casher's check for $3,977.00. okay someone out there , who is this company? all check have information who are sending it to me. who can we contact about this. it legit or what????
angelita


2006-08-21 14:05:50 -
I just want to state that this was just my experience concerning Surgimed International. I will not work with them.


2006-08-21 13:30:17 -
Do not work with Surgimed International on the check cashing scheme. At first it will appear that the check is deposited into the bank, but a couple weeks later it will be fraudulent and the money will be taken out. The bank may close your account and you may have to deal with lawyers.

Stop working with them immediately!
