MONEY ORDER, CHECKS, WESTERN UNION SCAMS~!!

This is a thief.. a scam artist!!! WARNING!!!
Current mood: aggravated
Category: MySpace

Here is a scam that I received, she has already been reported and deleted.

I am posting this here as a warning to others so if you ever get an email with this type of scenario DONT FALL FOR IT..

LAST YEAR I PLAYED ONE OUT WITHOUT GIVING MY PERSONAL INFO… I WANTED TO TEST IT AND TURNED THE RESULTS OVER TO THE FBI AND POSTAL AUTHORITIES.

I went as far as giving my old mailing address [have since moved] and one day FED EX showed up with 5 USPO money orders for $900 each totalling $4500-

THEY LOOKED REAL!!! i was stunned. the the other perp emailed me less than 1/2 hour after it arrived and wanted me to deposit them into my bank but immediately ‘wire’ them the money via Western Union.

I answered and told them that I would ‘cash’ them at the Post Office first.The person never wrote back and deleted his email account.

I brought them to the PO thinking maybe they were stolen since they looked real. The PO looked at them, took out a blank and showed me that mine were actually a fraction larger!!! THEY WERE COUNTERFEIT!! The PO told me that these are literally flooding the country and some banks do fall for them, but then they will bounce after processing….

Then if you already wired the money, since it goes out of the country, the money is gone and you get left with the bouncing balance at your bank…WHAT A SCAM~SO THIS ONE CAME AND I AM USING IT HERE TO WARN OTHERS~!

Subject: Good day to you,
Body: Good day to you,

I just came about your contact and your brief profile through the Myspace.com profile and I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you could earn a lot without affecting or disturbing your present job.This job would be based on contract and commission terms, it is a part-time job and it would involve quite a handful of trust and honesty.it is an offer you may find very good.

My name is Susan Ince I am a young healthy woman of 31.I live in Trumann Arkansas Usa,Own a textiles company in London(United Kingdom) which belongs to my late parent.My company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted fabrics and traditional costume, Italian wedding gowns and suits. We make sales and supply of goods to customers to many countries.

I am a widow and have 1 daughter of 4 years old.We both lived and manage the business together until about 3 months ago when I lost my husband and that has made the business a little tiring for me to handle alone. It was a little better when he was alive as we share the distribution and collection channel of the business.
Now I have to move permanently to the United Kingdom(London) to take care of my business and daughter and also my Business so I could make distributions of goods to the customers myself.

Now, I need a trustworthy and experienced male or female who will be working part time for me as a international representative/bookkeeper in the United State and I am willing to pay 10% wage for every transaction weekly.You will get paid weekly without leaving or affecting your present job. My clients make payments for our supplies every week in form of Cashiers checks, Bank Draft, or Money Orders which are not readily cashable outside United State, So I need a reliable and trustworthy individual in the United State to work as my representative and receive payments from my customers which wouldn’t affect your present work as the customers will be sending the payments to you via Fedex or Ups Courier.

I need a representative who will be handling the payment aspect for me. These payments will be coming in money orders or cashier,s cheque from my clients in any part of the world.So, all you need to do is to cash the money orders and deduct an interest of 10% from every several payments that you receive from the customers(your weekly wage) then wire the rest of the money to any of our branch offices through the moneygram or western union.This is a once in Blue moon Offer.

NOTE:
Let me know if you are interested so I can send the Partnership Form to you.
Kindly reply back to my Personal email address if you are Intrested in dealing with me so that we can Further our Communication Overthere.

I am so sorry you fell for it. I am mor sorry that your bank account got messed up.These predators come up with all sorts of supporting stories but all do the same thing:

.send you checks/ MO’s / bank Drafts

.tell you to ‘wire’ them money “immediately” to somewhere out of the US

.clean out your bank account or leave you in the negative numbers forcing you to have to repay the scam!

I am glad you are reposting it Titus! I hope together we can help prevent this from happening to others!

GBU~!

  1. I’d like to thank Ave for posting this site. If something sounds goods you can bet it isn’t , so when i received a letter from fred taylor i had doubts and looked on the internet for the address and sure enough i found this web site. The letter posted was word for word what i received except the name was fred taylor , and i even got a pic, no doubt that is a fake as well. My current mood is one of relief , i didnt fall for this scam but i’m sorry for those that do . Let only hope people will look before leaping . again thankyou titus you saved me alot of heartache

  2. We all get them~ you know the ones- a few variations:
    The ones looking for love
    The ones needing you to pretend to be an inheritor in the USA

    Anyway, “LOVE , Nigerian scammer style” is alot of FUN!!!

    RULES ARE SIMPLE:

    1. Answer their letter with passion. Make everything seem believable, but NEVER TELL THEM THE TRUTH…mixing a little fact or fiction is ok, but keep track of your letter for reference and try to keep the chain of responses on one thread.

    2. NEVER answer them on yahoo..make them stay on myspace, so you can keep a running record of the emails..

    3. NEVER GIVE THEM YOUR REAL NAME or address etc. Tell them the one you have on myspace is fake so you can protect yourself.
    Become somebody ‘rich, dumb and generous’ [they love it] Be risque with them- tell them outrageous things [most of them are fucntionally illiterate and it will go over their heads]

    4. Research on line, any city country and use some of that info to pretend you are at that location and writing to them from there…( I am currently vacationing in Capetown SA, surfing with sharks and bungy jumping, eating crocodile!]

    5. Profess your undying love, BUT you are having another internet suitor come stay with you and doing all sorts of things together.. Sound dumb ” like o he lost all his luggage at the airport so I BOUGHT HIM A WHOLE NEW WARDROBE'”….

    6. MAKE IT SEEM like you are spending all sorts of money on the other internet suitor but that you LOVE HIM and wish he were there with you instead…

    7. PLAY THEM as much as your imagination will allow you to and you will have some of the biggest laughs in your life……

    8. Give them false information but name real places [away from you] give them a retarded name and tell them to call you at such and such a place and ask for you….BUT give them a real phone number ,like of a famous hotel or restaurant and give them a time to call you….Beg them for their telephone number..[but dont ever call them, just email them that their phone isnt working..]

    9.The more you frustrate them with outrageous stories, the more fun you will have…

    10. Post the entire thread in your blog or bulletins and give everyone else a big laugh too…..

    **************************************************
    The best part is it is a way to strike back at these bums and give them a taste of their own medicine… No matter what never send them any money, personal info or location.. Pre-empt their questioning you about your profile by telling them it is fake..They will understand that since theirs are always fake….

    I am currently playing with 4 scammers at the same time. I use the same letters for each and just make subtle changes… it is like a class on creative writing.. I have researched Capetown SA and all its restaurants beaches and tours and so I am learning while I am playing ” Love Nigerian Scammer style”…

    If enough people actually do this, imagine what it will do to their scam? Seriously many people fall prey to these crooks and if we get smart and play them back, they may eventually slow down or stop, but by playing this game and telling all your friends to do so as well, we can also educate people from falling for the scams…

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend…

    Repost this game if you want to help stop the scammers!!!!

  3. O – and dont forget the so called young students from Ghana[kenya whereever!0 who just want to bless you and your family, so nicely til you love them and… then… they start tapping you for money with the high falluting intension , that they will only accept your help if you will allow them to repay.. They first try to hit you for $50 request and then a month or so later they need more…Then to pay you back they want to send you a ‘cashier’s checque” for more than they owe you… expecting you wire transfer them the balance so they can come to join you herre in the USD. They pull this scenario on singles sites, job sites , offers and even bed 7 breakefasts.. They will reserve a room and cancel last minute accepting that they owe a fee for cancellation. It is all part of the ‘bait’…dont fall for it..!!

  4. HI THANKS FOR THE WARNING. I RECEIVE THE SAME AND TOLD HIM THAT I NEEDED MORE INFORMATION SO I PRINT THE “COMPANY NAME” AND THIS CAME OUT. THANKS VERY MUCH EVERYONE SHOULD DO THIS.

  5. I just recieved five money orders in the amount of 460.00 each off of a Wal mart money order heading to cash keep 10% send the rest by western union to Accra Ghana. Im so glad that I try to fallow that inner vioce that gives you a warning sign. Believe in your gut fillings. If it sounds to good to be true it probably isn’t.

    COMMENT****This is another example how they try to scam people.Even if one money order may turn out real [most all are counterfeit] it is bait to a bigger rip off. I had received 5 US postal money orders that looked like the real deal and it took an expertto distinguish them which saved me frombeing responsible later for the money . *****

  6. Just learned of one where they are targeting teenagers on MySpace, sending them checks (which of course are counterfeit) from well known US companies. Sometimes they have correct bank/account numbers sometimes they just make those up, too.

    The recipient is instructed to Western Union all but $300 or so and of course then it’s too late and the money is gone.

  7. thanx so much I just got off of the messenger with a poor man (HA!!!) widower…same letter as above almost word for word…but I’ve caught one or 2 in the past and utilized the international police but they really can’t do anything do to international laws …so I believe our friend who suggested playing with them hard in reverse might be the best way to fight it continuing to happen…if there’s nothing in it for them after a while (and spread the word to play with them!) maybe they will give up on trying to cheat Americans out of their hard earned money!!
    thank you for this page!!

  8. I applied on career builders for a accounts payable position for Nwtexnet. I received a email about 2 days later for me to fill out some paperwork. They emailed me back saying that I received the position. I was to work for a company called Grumen Inc. They told me that I was to deposit the checks in my bank then western union to their companies in other states. Well, I knew that this had to be a scam but when he called me I told him that I deposit it in the bank but had to wait for it to clear the bank because of so many western union scams. I have not heard back from him. I did report this to the FBI. Then this week I got another for Premier Aluminium Inc. I remailed them back and said no thank you….its a scam

  9. i too have recieved such an offer from aman i met a month ago on the website tagged. he claimed to be a successful computer salesman. he would send me flowers and candy and sweet talk. then he said that he was in the UK doing business and customs put a hold on his computers and he needed me to cash 2 western union money orders totalling almost 2000.00. so when i received them i opened the envelope and took them to the bank. but the bank said they had to clear them first and it would take 5 working days. so when i told him he started begging me to send at least part. but i didnt have it thank goodness. then i looked closer at the envelope and it wasnt even sent from where he claimed to be. it was sent from here in the US. so yes be warned about scammers because they know all the right words to say to earn your trust.
