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

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.

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.

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!
