FRAUD ALERT: Work-at-home check cashing scam

ScamSafe Exclusive

“This is a major stolen and forged check ring! Beware...they send you bad checks and ask you to wire transfer money to a foreign location. I lost $4,500. Many people have been hurt by them...” --R Hambrice, Columbus, GA

Work-at-home business "opportunities" should always be looked at skeptically, however, we've learned about one recently that is truly insidious—and criminal.

This work-at-home scam purports to be in the international wire transfer business. They convince you that they need people to help them wire money quickly throughout the world. This fraudulent company is currently operating under the name Xian Energy and using the web site www.purexian.biz. They have also operated under the names CheckBank.biz and Filenio Finance and they place thousands of ads on popular job web sites including Monster, Careerbuilder, Careers.com, and Hotjobs/Yahoo!. Many of the ads have been taken down by these job boards (for now), thanks to Dick Hambrice, an intrepid man in Columbus, GA who was scammed by these criminals and is determined to shut them down.

The way it works is that they have people deposit checks, ranging in amounts from a few thousand to as much as $100,000, into their personal or business bank accounts. The check typically arrives overnight via FedEx. Unbeknownst to the victim, the checks are fraudulent—stolen, altered and forged to appear real. The thieves tell the victim to quickly wire transfer the amount of the check to the payee, minus a 5% commission. (The payee is said to be a US Citizen abroad or a foreign national with US bank accounts). The victim wires the 95% amount expecting to see a 5% commission soon—when the check clears. The check will never clear however (as its fraudulent) and the victim is left holding the bag since they wired their own funds. In addition, once the scammers have the victim’s bank account information from the wire transfer, they can also use those numbers to create a “demand draft” and withdraw funds without confirmation—draining the account.

In addition, on their website, Xian Energy goes out of its way to tell victims that they are a valid business and provide documentation to back it up—all fraudulent. This includes fake business licenses, California secretary of state documents, and statements from Dun and Bradstreet and the Better Business Bureau. This crime ring may be operating in Russia, since the wire transfer ultimately hits a bank in that country.

This crime ring could not operate without the help of some legitimate business to "enable" their scam. The conduit bank through which wire transfers are send to Russia is Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas. Xian’s web site is hosted by a company in the UAE (hostmatix.com) and their email service is from HKNet, a provider in Hong Kong. Both of these companies have refused repeated requests by Mr. Hambrice to shut down Xian’s services, even after being confronted with copious documentation of their crimes.

If you or someone you know has been hit by these thieves, you should immediately report it to the FBI, the United States Secret Service, and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. See our links page for information on how to contact these agencies.

We serve the entire United Kingdom and a growing export market. Your primary task for now as a representative of the company ;
(a) To co-ordinate payments from customers in the United State due to the recent difficulties when it comes to selling our products to the Americans, because they always offer to pay with US Cashier/Certified Checks which have always being a problem for us to process their payments here in United Kingdom. Therefore, we are looking for Mail Clerk across United States that will represent us as part-time Executive Trustees and we are willing to pay 10% commission of every transaction, nevertheless this would not affect your present state of work. Someone trustworthy who will receive payments on our behalf from our clients in the United States.We are planning to establish branches in the United States very soon.These payments could be in Money Orders or US Certified Checks and will be written payable to your name.So all you need do is to take them to your bank and cash them.

(b) Receive packages on behalf of Ape Computers Limited at your respective US address from some of our suppliers ( merchant) in the United State because most of some of our merchant are unable to accept or ship international orders .

Once again your earnings varies depending on how many payment you can process weekly
Remember you are not involved in any sales. Once payment are received and sorted, we make delivery to the customer. After this has been done, the customer has to pay for the products but in most cases we make our clients pre-pay for orders or items they ordered for. About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified Checks or United State Order (USPS Money Order) from the United State based on the amount involved. We have decided to open this new contract to hire job position for solving this problem.
JOB DESCRIPTION:
* Receive payment from our clients.
* Cash the Payments at your respective banks/check cashing offices.

I also received an email after I applied for a job via Cornhuskerhelpwanted.com. The lady's name was 'Dr. Michelle Evans' and she told me a few days later that I was an account officer for there company, but how can I be an account officer with the company when they did not even call me (I forgot the 'name' of the so called company). anyway I got a check a few days ago BUT I HAVE NOT CASHED IT YET AS I HAVE A FEELING THIS IS A SCAM. I will not cash the check either. I'm thinking about sending the check to the FBI with a detailed letter about my email that I got. Anyone know if this is really a SCAM? I told her that I did not want the job and she told me that the check had alreay been sent. But I was to send the money to her 'accountant' in Shanghi, China (that's why I think that it is a scam).

Here is one that I received from Poland Real Estate Company. It's the same stuff-receive check from U.S. client, cash it at check cashing store or bank, keep out my 4-10% commission (depending on how fast I processed the payment to them), then would also receive a $2500 salary at end of the month. I spent hours researching them. They even sent me copies of Licenses and Trade agreements. I looked them up on the Zivnostensky list of the Czech Republic and they were really on it but on The Ministry of Justice website the company ID was registered as ABRUPT INVEST CO. They say that they have a branch there as well as in Slovackia. I haven't tried to cash the check yet since it was all a little fishy to me. I haven't seen this company mentioned on any sites yet just the same job descriptions and such. Oh yeah, I even called Poland to speak with my "Personal Manager" Tom Shepard and actually talked to someone who said that the legal documents are real and if I couldn't get the check cashed that I should email the company and they would send me a different one. The check I got was from Austin E R Sloat, 20 Touchstone, Lake Oswego, OR 97035-1910. The checking account is at the University of Hawaii FCU in Honolulu, HI. If anyone knows that this is a scam please let me know. Like I said I am very suspicious and if it is a scam then these people went through a lot of work putting together all the information and documents to make it look "REALl". If anyone has any information please let me know. I am a single mother going to college full-time to make a better life for my kids. All I did was put my resume on a couple job search sites (CareerBuilders and Monster.com) to get a job to maybe not be so broke anymore. If these people are scammers they need to be punished severely. If nobody helps out now then maybe I can in a few years. I am pre-law currently and it won't be long till I have the resources needed to put these people where they belong. I can't understand how people can take advantage of others especially low-income single mothers who don't have their husband there to help support the family. Thanks for all the posts. They were very imformativie. Angela

I recieved the same mail from Pharma Health Care Group three days ago. As a struggling college student I felt it was a blessing. When I spoke with a close friend of mine that works for the Federal Government she told me to be aware. So, I looked up Pharma health care group, and I found nothing in my search! How sad!! So, what I decided to do was copy and past the fax number as this was the only contact information I had for the so called company, and this website came up....THANK GOD!!!! This is sad as it allow innocent people to get into trouble for no reason while they are off somewhere scott free scamming more individuals like you and me! I hope these people are caught and put under the jail! I need a job, not jail time

Dear Candidate,


Thanks for your response. We are glad to offer you a job position at our company, Pharma Healthcare Group. Our company founded in 1991 in London UK, Pharma Healthcare Group is one of the largest electronics and gadget selling companies to millions of our customers -- businesses, groups and individuals. The Pharma Healthcare Group logo is a trusted symbol of dependability. Pharma Healthcare Group is a leading provider of products ranging from computer hardware and accessories, game consoles, video games, mobile phones and medicine accessories. Naturally, you have big ideas for your career and that means you will need plenty of room - to grow, to explore your potential and to realize your goals. At the Pharma Healthcare Group, you will find a challenging, fast-paced environment where your creativity, drive and commitment will propel you to the top of your career. HR Manager of Pharma Healthcare Group needs a responsible, honest, self motivated and reliable individual to work for the company as our Legal Representative in USA. This is in view of us not having an office presently in the USA. You don't need to have an Office and this certainly will not disturb any form of work you have going at the moment.

About the job:

The average monthly income is about 5.500.00 USD
This job takes only 1-2 hours per day


Because of the Today’s situation on the financial market, there is a vacancy to be filled in our company, the vacancy of Legal Representative within the US. This opening will help our company to reduce taxes that we are obliged to pay to the government monthly. And we offer you one of the highest salaries on the market today and the minimal expenditures of time!

Presently with the amount of orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of losing our customers, secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international checks take about 28 working days for cash to be made available here in London UK. We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays. Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales.


We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX).The customer receives and check the products, After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. We accept all forms of payment but most of our customers pay using Bank Checks and so in order to solve this problem and not lose any of our customers we have decided to open this new job position. This job is legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today.

Your tasks are:

1. Receive payment from our customers.
2. Cashing the checks at your existing bank account.
3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed.
4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be contacted to send payment to.(Payment is to be forwarded by Western Union Money Transfer).


Local Money transfers take barely hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately. For example you've got 3000.00USD, you take your income: 300.00 USD Send to us: 2700.00 USD. In the first month you will have 15-20 transactions after checking your background records, 3000.00-4000.00 USD so you may calculate your income. For example 18 transactions on 3500.00 USD gives you 4410.00 USD Plus your basis monthly salary is 1000.00 USD Total: 5410.00 USD per month After establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more. You will also deduct fees that are related to this job, (gasoline, western union fees, bank commissions etc). The checks will vary from: $500.00 to $3,000.00. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part.


Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your existing bank account, we don’t accept newly created bank accounts, because it slows the cashing process. Deduct your Percentage and forward the balance to the company attorney manager via western union money transfer, the name will be giving to you in later. This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time doing another job, you'll get good income and regular job. This job is very challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for the worker who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest assistant.


You will receive next instructions step by step for every payment. If you need to go on vacation or relocate you have to notify us with at least two weeks in advance and everything will be all right. The same goes if you want to quit this job. You have to give us a two weeks’ notice but during that time you still have to perform your duties. After two weeks have passed from the notification we can end the contract.

We are glad to offer this job position to you. If you feel that you are a serious and earnest worker and you want to work for Pharma Healthcare Group, kindly fill the contract below so we can begin working with you right away.

Dear Candidate,


Thanks for your response. We are glad to offer you a job position at our company, Absolutely Payment Career LTD. Our company founded in 1991 in London UK, Absolutely Payment Career LTD is one of the largest electronics and gadget selling companies to millions of our customers -- businesses, groups and individuals. The Absolutely Payment Career LTD logo is a trusted symbol of dependability. Absolutely Payment Career LTD is a leading provider of products ranging from computer hardware and accessories, game consoles, video games and mobile phones to highly sophisticated audio equipment and TV’s. Naturally, you have big ideas for your career and that means you will need plenty of room - to grow, to explore your potential and to realize your goals. At the Absolutely Payment Career LTD, you will find a challenging, fast-paced environment where your creativity, drive and commitment will propel you to the top of your career. HR Manager of Absolutely Payment Career LTD needs a responsible, honest, self motivated and reliable individual to work for the company as our Legal Representative in USA. This is in view of us not having an office presently in the USA. You don't need to have an Office and this certainly will not disturb any form of work you have going at the moment.

About the job:

The average monthly income is about 5.500.00 USD
This job takes only 1-2 hours per day


Because of the Today’s situation on the financial market, there is a vacancy to be filled in our company, the vacancy of Legal Representative within the US. This opening will help our company to reduce taxes that we are obliged to pay to the government monthly. And we offer you one of the highest salaries on the market today and the minimal expenditures of time!

Presently with the amount of orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of losing our customers, secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international checks take about 28 working days for cash to be made available here in London UK. We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays. Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales.


We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX).The customer receives and check the products, After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. We accept all forms of payment but most of our customers pay using Bank Checks and so in order to solve this problem and not lose any of our customers we have decided to open this new job position. This job is legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today.

Your tasks are:

1. Receive payment from our customers.
2. Cashing the checks at your existing bank account.
3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed.
4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be contacted to send payment to.(Payment is to be forwarded by Western Union Money Transfer).

Local Money transfers take barely hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately. For example you've got 3000.00USD, you take your income: 300.00 USD Send to us: 2700.00 USD. In the first month you will have 15-20 transactions after checking your background records, 3000.00-4000.00 USD so you may calculate your income. For example 18 transactions on 3500.00 USD gives you 4410.00 USD Plus your basis monthly salary is 1000.00 USD Total: 5410.00 USD per month After establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more. You will also deduct fees that are related to this job, (gasoline, western union fees, bank commissions etc). The checks will vary from: $500.00 to $3,000.00. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part.


Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your existing bank account, we don’t accept newly created bank accounts, because it slows the cashing process. Deduct your Percentage and forward the balance to the company attorney manager via western union money transfer, the name will be giving to you in later. This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time doing another job, you'll get good income and regular job. This job is very challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for the worker who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest assistant.

You will receive next instructions step by step for every payment. If you need to go on vacation or relocate you have to notify us with at least two weeks in advance and everything will be all right. The same goes if you want to quit this job. You have to give us a two weeksâa™ notice but during that time you still have to perform your duties. After two weeks have passed from the notification we can end the contract.


We are glad to offer this job position to you. If you feel that you are a serious and earnest worker and you want to work for Absolutely Payment Career LTD, kindly fill the contract below so we can begin working with you right away.

This is a scam we ran into while trying to sell a couch on Craig's List. The guy says he'll buy it outright (in broken English) and his secretary will deliver a Cashier's check. He drags it on, secretary doesn't arrive, but he says that check is coming, however the bad secretary has made the check out for too much, so I will need to reimburse him for the shipping amount. He is using the same JOHN TERRY name as others have used, and when I called him on the scam, he went ballistic via email, calling me all kinds of names. Wow, it was better than an old-fashioned exorcism! ;o)

Here's his first email:

A company called 'Leadaway Evaluations' is now pulling this scam.

Posted by: mntx at Oct 20, 2008 1:44:57 PM

i came across this list and had to leave a post
my name is mike,i'm a single father from ohio.
i've known many of the individuals running this scam mostly from nigeria.
I know that many of you on this site are expecting the fbi or some other group from our government to step in here an help bring these jerks to justice, the unfortunate truth is that they have no interest in helping any of us.
thought i did not loose any money from this scam i did however feel the need to help bring this ring down,
i made contact with my local fbi office and informed them that i had the names, addresses and phone numbers of many fo the people running the scam as well as their bank info the bank names account numbers and routing numbers, as well as a detailed list of the people they were having these checks mailed to and a list of real companies and real banks they had stolen account info for and that account info.
I thought surely with this much info they should be able to act and do something.
but unfortunately their responce was that they did not even want the info.
so any of you who are expecting help you're probably waisting your time,
the people you're trying to catch are not even hard to find or smart at all. i was able to gather all this info in just a few weeks.
that's just me messing around on my computer in my spare time, how long could it possibly take for an fbi agent to find them if they wanted to.
fyi the e-mail address i used is fake please don't send this poor guy e-mails he won't know what you're talking about

I have included all the correspondance with this company. I am very skeptical! Although the company rep didn't ask for my bank or account info., I feel that this is a scam. Their website looks legit but in my heart I feel like this is a dangerous opportunity just lurking in the midst.

Hello...I was scammed by a secret shopping ring. I applied for the job on craigs list and was told I would be ent a check, I spoke to a man named Andy Coleman. A few days later I got the check. I was not required to send money back to them so I didnt think it was a scam. The only requirement I had was to end my receipts along with my evealuation back to Mr. Coleman. Because I didn't have to send actual money back, I thought it was ligit. I deposited the check into my account and when it cleared I went shopping and accumulated my reciepts. A few days later the check was found to be no good. Now my account is almost $5,000 negative and God only knows what is going to happen to me. Don't fall for this. Im not sure what the laws are regarding this but I'm sure I'm about to find out.

Please be on the lookout for a company called stock-fabrics who operates under the cloth and textiles category. Same exact pitch as all the rest...want to send a "Cashier's Check", have you cash it, then keep 10% for your self and split the remaining 90% anount two receivers they provide. I got a check for $3,800 and plan to call the FBI and any other agency to track them down. NONE OF THESE SCAMS ARE LEGIT, NO MATTER HOW CONVINCING THEY SOUOND. Don't end up in jail and out of thousands...Ignore the BS!!

This all started when I purchased'Legit Jobs on the Internet'; the next day 88 e-mails to answer.

I'm hip deep in them now, being bi-polar and permanently I get a sick kick out of seeing how far they will play. I've got 4 loaded files...no more than that. I haven't lost anything just wanted to give them rope.

I've got downloaded pics of HSBC credit cards with my name on them that they wanted 840 to ship to me to start out with they now want 20.

Also have pics an 'atty' sent of 'police report of auto wreck; whole family died', accompanied coroner's report and death certificate. He wants me to present myself as next of kin to claim hefty bank that will go unclaimed to split 50/50 for doing so. Is he thinking I'm totally wanting to spend the rest of my days in a foreign prison or what?

They have called and threatened me because I won't pickup their pkgs. One claimed to be a Rev. even; I blew my stack on that one no playing game there; let him have it.

I filed I3 two days ago let FBI know I had been leading them on and file after file plus the added perks of downloaded pics if they wanted them. They called back but I was at the docs office.

Then I got the WinGas offer...Checked it out I thought; but good ole Sasse actually caught himself up if you pay any attention to his letter: he tells you to download a letter of Confirmation of Employment...gives a link...some bright cookie has hooked it up to this site. Actually yesterday I contacted the main headquarters of WinGas letting them know that I had years of Oil & Gas Land/Leasing exp. in both Tulsa and OKC Okla and had been a legal secretary for one of the major co. there. Haven't heard back from them since. I wonder why?

I did receive a call yesterday from a lady claiming to be with the fed gov. ins. rebate dept.; said they took out ss taxes, federal taxes and the job paid approx 38,000 a year. Has anyone heard of this?

I received the following email from a Company called Caremax Group Parts:

. 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 made in your name from our customers in U.S. 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 at your bank using your pre-established account in less than two business days from the moment you receive them from our customer. The checks will vary from: $100.00 to $3,000.00.

4. You deduct the 10% commission from the total amount of the check 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. You will not make the transfer on our company name. One of our employees will be the receiver for the funds. We use several secure methods to transfer funds between our offices and employees. The methods are money transfer via Western Union (www.westernunion.com) . You can send the money with cash from the nearest Western Union office. Please use the website locator ("Find Agent Location") to show you a Western Union office near your location. Then you have to go there and send the funds to us.

6. After one month has passed since you signed the contract you will receive your first $1000.00 salary separate.

Today, CAREMAX GROUP PARTS is building on the company's strong tradition for product research and development and is developing into one of the UK 's leading healthcare s. The company has developed and markets products in the growing areas of sports medicine, spinal surgery, heart bypass implant, wheelchairs and has an established international distribution base across Europe and America .

CAREMAX GROUP PARTS is a privately owned company. 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. We sell a large variety of products ranging from state of the art wheelchairs and parts, service professional equipment that is used for people practicing sport that undergo physical recovery from injuries, hospital equipment and so on. Our catalogue of products is comprised of over two hundred items and professional services.

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 CAREMAX GROUP PARTS has its headquarters in London , UK . As such we do not yet have stores or offices in the United States . 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 paid by our customers from U.S. 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 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. This job is official and legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today. You are one step away from being part of our company. Our job is flexible in regards to work hours and place, an opportunity designed to fit around your family's income and time needs. You can earn from $24,000 up to $160,000 a year (depends on your performance) and more after one year working with us. Our company can guarantee $5,500 every month income in your first year of work.

The process itself involves answering e-mails a couple of times per day and going to a bank. This job does not require any kind of experience. It only requires access to the Internet and knowledge to send e-mails. First step in this job is for you to wait at home for checks sent by our American customers on your name as per our instructions. For this to be possible we need your basic personal info such as full name and full address.

Fill in the empty fields in the contract at paragraph 1.2, sign it and send it to us.

Our payments will be issued out in your name as we would inform our Clients to do.

You will be required to notify us at least 14 days early, if eventually you want to discontinue working with us, so as to terminate all payments that have been approved to be sent to you, in order to avoid any conflicts.

Hey All
Yeah, I was offered a job off of CareerBuilder from a RodSon Universal Inc. Claimed to be an international company that sold heavy equipment for seaports and construction sites. I had my suspicions but It seemed legit when I looked into it, but I didn't do my homework well enough. Thank God for a warning sign at my bank about check fraud otherwise I was seconds away from depositing the damn thing into my account and I'd be in a real fix. Even though I caught it in time i still feel kind of stupid even for buying into the damn thing. I intend on contacting some authorities tomorrow, as i now feel i should do whatever i can to stop this kind of thing from happening to good people.

I have a check sitting at my desk right now for 3850.00. The check is from a Washington Mutual Account. So, I went to the bank and tried to cash it. It turns out that the account is real, but the teller said that they couldn't cash it because there was no signature on file. They said that I needed to call the company to get an ok to cahs it. I did that. A guy name David picked up the phone and said that it was ok to cash. So I went back to the bank, and the teller tells me that he can't cash it because there are not enough funds in the account to cover the amount anyway. I tried to call the company again but now the number is busy every time. Be aware of a company called Triveni International. The company comes up on the internet as a textile company. However, I researched the address and it came back as a laundry mat in New York. Be careful.

I received a check yesterday from an individual Raymond B. Skubel in an envelope from Global Cash Transfers in Berkshire, United Kingdom. I looked up both names and found phone numbers...I have not called them yet. I did not receive any information with the check just the check by itself. Is this also a scam????

Thanks,

I almost got scammed several years ago - when this first started. I took the check to the bank, and they told me that it was from a legit account and they called the bank and verified funds. but the banker that i dealt with told me that i should wait for the funds to clear before wiring any funds. I showed her everything that I was given. The check came back fraudulent and they closed my account for me. I did not loose any money because i talked to my banker.

However - after searching for years - I did find a legit "work from home" job site.
www.volition.com they have a list of over 160 mystery shopping companies. Most pay through paypal. If you like shopping then this is a good way of making money or getting reimbursed for things.

Posted by: sb at Jul 12, 2007 2:44:14 AM

My girlfriend and I got an email about working from home and decided to go ahead with it...Yesterday we received a check via ups for $4,550.00...we were supposed to cash the check and take 10% plus the transfer fees and then western union the rest of the 90% to 2 different people based out of Ghana...The companies name is Wingas and I did a little research and a website comes up and it looks legit, but when we got the check it just looked funny...Yes it was made out to me, but it just didn't look right...The check was out of new jersey, but on the ups package it said it came from miami...Also the persons name on all the emails is Michael Sasse and there was an international phone #, but on the check there was a name of Michael Walowy....We also called wachovia bank because that was where we were supposed to cash it and gave the lady the info and came to find that the numbers on the check weren't even valid...These guys aren't very smart if they're trying to scam people...My girlfriend emailed the guy before we received the check and he actually called back but she said he was very short and antsy and just kept saying to cash the check, cash the check...So needless to say if you get anything pertaining to Wingas Corporation...it's a company based out of Germany, that works with solar energy I believe, but just be careful...I didn't find anything on the bbb's database either...If it's too good to be true...it probably isn't...also I think that the banks shouldn't clear checks unless their verified...because innocent people get hurt...

Man am I glad I decided to do some research on this! I have a check for $2960.00 right now but didn't feel comfortable about trying to cash it until I did some research on the company so did a search on yahoo for techno healthcare and found this site. Thanks you whoever started this and all the people who posted your experiences with these company's, you all are a blessing from God.

Posted by: ron at Jun 2, 2007 11:25:11 AM

I too have recently received check cashing scam offers from Techno Healthcare and a number of other variations on the theme. They're all essentially the same, work at home, skim 10 percent off the top for yourself, along with a somewhat modest monthly salary, and turn the money over immediately before the check you receive bounces.

The Techno Healthcare offer of Caroline Madelyn Eastrige is by far the slickest and most convincing. They even provide you with a "Representative Contract" that appears very convincing if you're not used to scrutinizing contracts. It's fatal flaw, however, besides the requirement for an immediate turn around of the money received, is the dispute resolution provision, Section XI. It states:

"Both parties have agreed that all the misunderstandings regarding the validity of the present contract or resulting from interpretation, execution or cessation shall be worked out in a friendly manner by their representatives."

Notwithstanding the gramatical infirmities reflected in the passage, no lawyer would draft a dispute resolution clause in a contract that simply obligated everyone to work it out in a friendly manner. That's too vague. There would be language designating the jurisdiction whose law would govern interpretation of the contract, possibly mandatory arbitration language, and possibly even an award of attorney's fees and costs to the prevailing party in any dispute pursued.

But otherwise, it's easy to see how people can be duped into this scam. There may be legitimate ways to work from home and operate a business over the internet. But quick check cashing services for foreign nationals is not one of them.

I received an e-mail from Monster.com (sophia.hilemen@monster.com) regarding a "representative contract" in which they can "guarantee $4500 every month income..." and promise to send you $900 salary every month on top of the 10% of the check cashed. What I found to be odd was they sent me a "representative contract" for Med Equipment Labs UK (located at 76 Marylebone High Street, W1U 2RY London UK) that appeared to be almost legitimate. Is anyone familiar with this company or offer? I am aware of the "if it looks to good to be true" theory. I am curious as to whether or not any of these are legal. Also listed on the contract was fax no. 914-462-3203

Only there was no signature in the purchaser box. I called the FBI and issue a complaint with IC3. Iwish there was something we could do to catch these ?^T$#_)(*!!!!. I even got a phone call saying the FBI had recovered money stolen from my checking acct. They had to eletronically wire the money back to my acct. I told them I had closed the bank acct. Then they hung up on me. Call came from the same city as the UPS package that the 3,000 came from Buffalo NY

Sounded too fishy to be real, so I looked on Google with the company's name and you all verified my sneaking suspicion. Thanks!

ROBERT DOUGLAS FROM ROBBIN CEILING AND PLASTER SENDS YOU A ALMOST REAL LOOKING MONEY ORDER. PLEASE DONT FALL FOR IT. looks all good comming from fedex. but its a scam

Posted by: noname at Feb 21, 2007 9:49:30 AM

are any of these companies legit i recieved am email :
Dear Representative,

This is an update of payments that you must receive in the following days from our customers. There is a check from Cynthia Thomas with a value of $2,920.00. The product OK 400 which is a heart bypass implant was already delivered. Please let us know when you receive the check so we can give you instructions.

Thank you, Carol

Pleas tell is this fraud what should I do? The company info is globalgrouphealthcare@monster.com

==========================

this is FRAUD. do not attempt to deposit the check unless you want to risk losing all the money AND being arrested. i am serious. and don't try to verify if the check is real because it's almost impossible to do. that's the quick version of what to do.

I posted my resume on craigslist.com looking for some work at home typing and I received a reply from a company like this. My first thought was: THIS IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. I asked everyone I knew what they thought and they all thought the same thing. I googled the company name and never found anything that matched exactly. So I checked a couple other websites and finally came across this site and one other that was really helpful and helped me decided for sure that this is a huge scam. The company that I received the email from was J & C Fabrics LTD and their email address was a hotmail address which was also a red flag to me. I was lucky enough that the light went off before I fell for it, cause, like everyone else I am sure, I cannot afford to fall prey to this. Thank you to this site for keeping me and other safe from falling victim to this.

I am hoping that someone from the FBI will read this I received a check for almost $3000.00 and I called 411 on my cellphone and gave the operator the address that was on the check and she gave me a phone number and then I called it and a man answered the phone and I told him my name and he said yes do you have a grandfather named and said the name that is dead and I said yes he said well he left you a living trust fund and this it the money for it. So before I got off the phone I asked him well do you know when he died and the told me the exact date. So I figured it was a good check. So the next day I went to the bank and deposited the check it looked good well the next day after I deposited the check the money was in my account. Well about 10 days later I get a phone call from my bank saying this is a bad check. So I closed my account and opened a new one but I also got a copy of the check and then took it to the local police. What should I do now?

london gold exchange is running the same scam. They use a link to the web site that they set up.

don't fall for this one!!!!

Posted by: MOORE at Dec 18, 2006 10:01:29 PM

I have been contacted too by a company called Interface Fabrics. Same deal as with everyone else here. I have reported to IC3 and I didn't cash the checks.


===========================

Good work, Kevin. Everyone, Kevin did the right thing. He ignored the check, did not attempt to "verify" it with a bank (because they can't verify good or bad checks, no matter what they tell you), and he reported it to the FBI website at www.ic3.gov.

I also ran into this same scam. He never gave me the name of the company but said he is an artist that has clients in the US and needs me to transfer money for him. I received a cashiers check of $5000 but I called the bank that was on it and it said it wasnt valid. I contacted him and he said that he will contact the client and talk to him and see why he is giving out counterfeit money and said he was sorry. He then sent me another payment a couple of months later. 7 travelers checks adding up to $3500. I havent cashed them thank god because of this website. I will go to the police asap. The guys name is Chucks Taylor from London.

Has anyone heard of C&C Financing and Consulting based out of the UK? I recieved an email form them a few weeks ago wanting me to recieve checks keep 10% and send them the rest. I was very hesitate about it but I finally fell for it. I have been looking for an online job so that I could work at home and stay home with my newborn. I was stupid enough to give them my license # phone # and address. Now they are still contacting me and telling me I will recieve my first check by friday. I am taking it straight to the police, but what I am really worried about is that I gave them personal information, and i don't know what they will do with it, they could really ruin my life if they wanted to. These people are so pathetic they are hurting others and don't care. I just don't know what to do now does anyone have any suggestions? Stay away form this company

Received today an email alledged to be from president Ken Ono of Onoken Corp. Responded with instructions to send addl info so I can verify if it is legit.

Posted by: CautiousCitizen at Nov 13, 2006 9:02:42 PM

Hi, I also rec'd an email out of the blue from a company called ONOKEN Corporation from Japan. They have asked me to do the same thing. Cash cheques from buyers from Canada and US, wait for the cheque to clear, then wire the money to them, - 10%. Has anyone ever heard of this company. I know they have a website and earn a lot of money per year but I would like to know if what they want me to do is legal. If they are a legitimate company. Although I cannot seem to locate them at the BBB site. Is it possible that they are a legitimate company, they really sell iron and steel to the US and Canada, they NEED someone in this area to cash their cheques. If anyone has any info, please email me.

Thanks a lot.

Hi everyone!
I LITERALLY am holding a check right now that I recieved yesterday from one of these "companies". The company name is NTT Limited. I was contacted through craigslist.org after posting my resume. I figured what the hell to see if they would actually send a check to me. Funny thing is, it's Wells Fargo check from someone in Montana made payable to me for $3,850...today I'm going to take it to Wells Fargo to see if the account is valid and if it's not, I'll give it to them and they can go after them. :-) Good luck everyone!

Yes, I have. Expat Finacial sent me a check. I havent done anything with it yet. It must be the newest one because no one had said anything about it until now. Im not sure what to do with it.

Posted by: Granston at Sep 8, 2006 6:27:41 AM

Has anyone heard of expatfinancial. They seem to spout off nonsense similar to the above stories. I was told to cash a check sent to me, keep 10%, and wire the rest of the money to a place in Turkey. I haven't done this, nor will I, but wanted to know if anyone else had any contact with these people.
