Reporting check cashing & other Internet scams

ScamSafe has been contacted by a number of victims of the check cashing work-at-home scams asking what they should do. So we contacted the FBI and this is what we were told.

"Anyone who responded to these fraudulent schemes--whether you lost money or not--should file an online report with the Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C). Your report will be analyzed and disseminated to the appropriate federal, state and local law enforcement to help ensure a coordinated investigation. Anyone who lost money should also report the matter to law enforcement, whether it be the local FBI office* or Police Department."

Also, if you lost money, wired money or gave out your account number, you should contact the fraud department of your bank and probably close the account immediately. Although checking or savings accounts don't have the same protections against fraud as credit cards, your bank may provide recompense for lost funds--it's worth asking. And you'll need a police report to back up your claims.

________________________________________
Beware of this small time scammer. He sold be a junk laptop screen, and the one he sent was not even for my laptop. After getting the screen and finding out it was a scam I tried to get my money back. He had me send the screen to a bogus address."note" (there is no company address on his website) and said sorry no money back. I contacted paypal and filed a claim and I was shocked, they sided in his favor because my package did not go to his address. I must say it’s a good scam. I learned alot about buying on the net...also he has some way of removing his emails from my inbox?? not sure how he does it. Also beware, He is not afraid to lie to paypal and alter paypal records and email them...

This movement results to a complicated inflation in the country. Regarding to this, one of the most secure form of cash to numerous today is gold. And with the gold price is on the rise. Beware though, like any other event in our economy, con artists cannot wait to take advantage of the unsuspecting and trusting resident. Cash for gold scams are on the rise everywhere. Many of the ads on television proclaiming they provide you with the most for gold, actually give you significantly under local pawn shops or gold buyers. They are not idiotic, whenever you send them your gold you also sign a form that you agree to take whatever amount they give you. So be mindful when selling your gold right now.

Look out for e-mails from Paul Miller's Art. I thought it would be interesting to see what turns up so I " went along" with it. The other day I did get a check for $9,950. They did a great job on the check, it sure looks real. There is no return address on the envelope it came in and it was mailed from Canada.It's from a Peerless Pump company in Indianopolis and the bank used is a PNC Bank, N.A. in Jeanette, PA. I'm going to call the pump co. and the bank and let them know what is going on. I already checked on the routing number on the check and know it isn't any good. Have to give these guys and E for effort.

This seemed too good to be true, so we did some research. There is an actual company listed with Dun & Bradstreet. I responded to the email providing the information requested and they responded that I was approved. I received a check in the mail in the amount of $1,919. I was ready to deposit it, but wondered why it would be coming from Spelman College. After calling the college, we discovered the college gets a lot of these.... however they do not have an account with Wachovia Bank. I am glad I found this site and plan on contacting the FBI with the information. It's too bad in this bad economy that people like this make it difficult to trust legimate businesses.

Posted by: Elaine at Oct 4, 2007 5:59:09 PM

They responded back and here is what I emailed them with. THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR GIVING ME A HEADS UP!

I am sorry... but getting an email from someone I don't know telling me that the job is 100% legal is not convincing. I have been doing some homework and I see that there are numerous people getting scammed and sent to jail for doing these things because these checks are bogus or stop payments are issued. I also see that you got my information from a job posting on career builder.com. I never applied to your company but I did apply at a place called Surrey Hotels (which by the way HAS NO hotels here in Dallas). Very sneaky.
I am NOT interested in being scammed or put in jail.... so the answer is no. Not Interested.
Remove me from your email list IMMEDIATELY!

Ok... I have a good one for everyone. I applied for a job with Surrey Hotels on CareerBuilder (a real hotel in NY and Chicago). Then I get the following email from a company called Surrey Staffing Inc. So anyone could google the hotel company and see that it exists, but of course of no intention of having hotels in Dallas TX (where I live). Very sneaky way of getting my information. I reported the ad to CareerBuilder. Anyone applying for what seems to be a real job is actually opening themselves up to these scam artists!

Email:
We are an advertising company from Germany called Surrey Staffing, Inc.

Description of this job: Part Time Representative: $3,800/month

In this Representative position your task is to receive and clear at the bank
the money orders or cashier checks that our US customers have to pay to our
company for advertising packages.
In this way we will receive some payments faster (US money orders/checks are
cleared in Germany in 30 days from the day are received).


You have 10% commission from every check that you will receive so you are paid
for your services same day you process the payment because you will deduct your
share directly.
The job is 100% legal in USA and all our sales activities are recorded at US
Work Bureau.


In order to start this part time job today we have some requirements:

time.


All you need is an established bank account, where you will cash the checks. It
really depends where you cash the checks. We do not welcome new bank accounts
for our business for a few reasons. First, you won't be able to cash checks
fast, because the banks put at least a few weeks' hold to deposits into a new
account.
We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell
our advertising packages.
We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an
outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees.
That way you can feel absolutely protected and safe.

You will receive various payments from our US or Canada buyers for our
advertising packages.
With US representative's help we can process payments faster and the customers
will be served faster. We are selling in US 95% from time advertising packages
like ads in Europe Newspapers, email marketing packages, Search engine services.

you will have all the answers within few hours or minutes.

receive and clear at the bank.
5. You transfer us 90% minus transfer costs (the transfer costs are paid from
our 90%) with bank to bank transfer or Western Union

I received a new one today. Usually I just mark certain types of emails as "spam" without opening, but this was sent as a supposed job offer, and I'm looking to a job; and I happen to sew. So that's kind of weird, makes me wonder is someone actually did some background search on me? here it is:
copy/paste:

To: Send an Instant Message alextun00@yahoo.com
Dear friend,
Bacon Fabrics and Textiles need someone to work for the company as a Representative/Book keeper in other country. This is in view of our not having an office presently in the USA. You don't need to have an Office and this certainly wont disturb any form of work you have going at the moment, Our integrated yarn and fabric manufacturing operations use state-of-the-art textile equipment from the world leading suppliers. Order processing, production monitoring and process flow are
seamlessly integrated through a company-wide computer network .

* The average monthly income is about 4000.00 usd.
* No form of investments from you.
* This job takes only 1-3 hours per day This we need to get payments for our products as soon as it possible because customers can just "forget" to pay. Unfortunately we are unable to open bank accounts in the United State without first registering the company name. Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put it on hold. For fear of loosing the customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough as international Cheques take about 14 working days for cash to be made available. We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays. YOUR TASK Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales.
Our sales manager sells products. Once he makes a sale we deliver the product to a customer (usually through USPS OR FEDEX).The customer receives and checks the products. After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. About 90 percent of our customers prefer to
pay through Certified Cheques and Money orders based on the amount involved. We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem. Your tasks are;

1. Receive payment from Customers

2. Cash Payments at your Bank

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 forwarded either by Money Gramme or Western Union Money Transfer. Local Money transfers takes barely hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer payment almost immediately.
For example you ve got 3000.00USD You take your income : 300.00 USD Send to us: 2700.00 USD - cost of sending, First month you will have 15-20 transactions on 3000.00-4000.00 USD
So you may calculate your income. For example 18 transactions on 3500.00
USD gives you 4410.00 USD

Well, I found this on Craigslist. Scammers are working everywhere. Looks like differant person same game.

From: Michael Kaplan

To: duaine s
Subject: Re: Fast courier. 1000 weekly

Hello, Duaine.

Here's some info about our company and the whole process so you can find
answers for most of your questions

CIS Express was created in March 2003 to assist small vendors and
individuals from Russia, Ukraine and Eastern European countries in
their work in US and Canada's markets.

Most of our clients are working in adult business or selling software.
Payment is the main problem for such sellers. The most popular methods
of payment for such sellers are checks and electronic transfers.

There are only two methods of payment available Russia and Eastern
European region - services like Western Union and Moneygram or Wire
transfers. Wire transfers and rather complicated and Western Union
and Moneygram are not widely known by US customers and transfer fees
of such services are rather high for P2P transfers. This makes the work
of individual seller very hard.

Our aim is help such sellers. We've tried different working schemes
but none of them was good enough. Finally we decided to use P2P agent
method of work.

Right now we have over 500 clients who are working with us on
permanent bases. We work as an agent between our clients and
individuals in US. A few years of successful work shows the benefits
of that organization scheme for all parties involved.

Starting with online payment systems now we are also working with
checks processing and electronic transfers.

You'll work as an independend contructor and you can be provided with
1099 form for IRS by the end of the year.

We also provide high level of security for everyone. We check all
seller before we start working with them to verify their legibility
and legibility of the content they are selling. We also verify all our
employees before they are allowed to work with out clients and our
employees are protected from any type of reversals by our policy of
next day refunding (money will be credited from our client's account).
Also note that you'll receive all transfers only AFTER services are
rendered. This protects us from being involved in online fraud and
money laundering schemes.

Our main office is located in Moscow, Russia.
In 2007 we are planning to open our Kiev and New York branches.



Right now we have openings for wire and check processing.

Note: we also have a special offer for workers with business accounts

What you need to work with checks.

What you need to start:

1. To have a checking account at least 4 months old or you can open a
new account for this.

2. Be able to accept incoming transfers and resend them in 3 days.
(Only after transfer is cleared at your bank)

3. A copy of your legal ID scanned and emailed to us. Digital photo of
ID is fine too.
This is needed because we are working with your client's money and
we have to be sure in our employees. This copy will be used ONLY
for verification of Identity.


We offer 10% for processing bank transactions.
You are responsible for all transfer fees.
Transfers are usually $8000-$15000
Western Union transfer fee for large amounts is about 4%
Using International wire transfer is about $50

Sample transaction:

1. You receive a wire transfers for $10000
2. You wait for the transfer to be cleared and withdraw money
3. You should send 90% of funds received to our client.
That would be $9000
4. Transfer funds with our client's preferred method - Moneygram
or Wire transfer.
Sending $9000 with Moneygram would cost you about $300.
You income is about $700.
Transfers using wire transfers are much cheaper but clients usually
prefer Moneygram

Best Regards,
Michael

Marketing Alternatives, LTD- William Lean

So today i got a fedex package with three checks for $3000 and a form to fill out about how the service was when i cashed the checks. I barely remembered applying for this but then looking back to my emails, I saw that i had an email from him asking if I was still interested in and he went ahead and fedexed me the checks without me telling him to.

i had a weird feeling about this so i decided to check on here if anyone knew anything about it

Just received a email regarding a manager job I sent my resume to on Craigslist Seattle. Ad said it was a non office job. Guy's name was Paul Restuccia from cis-express,com. Same as previous posts about doing money transfers for Russia and Eastern European businesses. How can this person continue to do this when we all know it's a scam. Thought it was interesting that my email provider automatically put his in my Junk folder. STAY CLEAR of this scam or you will lose all your money in your bank account!!

Posted by: Eric at Feb 19, 2007 9:52:10 AM

just got one. Arent these money scams an obvious scam by now? Easy money in life is very rare. Why do people not understand that and blindly give away money to these people, especially after hearing versions of these exact scams splattered all over the television? I just don't understand? If you are that greedy and lazy, then you deserve to be ripped off in my opinion. It is the only way you will learn that to make money and a good life, you must work, in one way or another, through blod, sweat, passion or tears. Sure there are those random few, but you just are not one of them and Paul from CIS-Express is no tyour meal ticket. The Internet is a whole new world, proceed with caution folks. No face, no proof, no more responsibility, no more getting your money back, no more justice. The lines are blurred. It is indeed tougher to catch a criminal, muchless define one. Money still has its value, it is not easy to attain, requires brains, work, knowledge, luck, hence the value. Beware. If you are educated enough to use the Internet, then be educated enough to use extreme caution when dealing with complete strangers who want you to put your money and bank accounts on the line. Come ON! I can only feel so much sympathy for you all who have been ripped off. Just enjoy life, make the most of what you have, and be happy because facts point to you be as successful as your parents were, and the chance of a random miracle just ain't the way life rolls anymore, or ever for that matter. - please pardon typos and such, not a moron, just in the heat of the moment. The best of luck to you all though. Really.

Hi,

My boyfriend brought home some papers
that a co worker had given him for me, a work
at home deal and I was excited about that.

Then when I started reading it, I knew it
was a scam. The company goes by Global
Healthcare and was based in London. It didn't
have a regular telephone number , only two fax numbers . Red flag number one. Red flag number two is no one is going to give a stranger money.
I am glad I did a google search, the MSN search turned up nothing.

I am sure this is just another version of a Nigerian scam.

Who do you think is behind this and how can we put a stop to this ? Suggestions ?

Posted by: maria at Jan 20, 2007 1:52:53 PM

here is another one for you. lady makes friends over the internet and then "wants you to cash her clients check for her because she is overseas and they will not cash U.S. funds". she wants to ups it to your home address only. this smelled fishy to me. told her to send it to a ups store location, would not do that only to home address. said her "client" could not ship it to a ups store. have not responded back since. here is the e-mail address she(assuming that it is a she) is/was using: vivian_marcus_54@yahoo.com. when i checked with yahoo reverse e-mail search it did not show up. if anyone knows how to drop the hammer on this scam, please do so. watch out with making friends online!!!!

In my investigations, I found that there is indeed a "Marketing Alternatives Ltd" in Surrey, UK but there is NO website. Also, the listing for the company in the Yahoo phone directory has a different phone number.

A follow-up email to "Mr. Lean" requesting more info about his company, past clients and website returned an email stating that "... all that information was given in the original email..."

So, the purpose of my posting is to see if anyone else has had dealings with this person and company.

what should i do... i cashed a check of one of this companies, i have the money on me right now. but i truly believe its a scam, what should i do.... please help,

Posted by: Zayed at Dec 21, 2006 9:38:21 PM

im so glad i found this site. i was sent an email about a week or so go from GLOBAL HEALTHCARE GROUP. as prev comments stated they want me to cash checks collect 10% and send them the balance. i did a search on found a "company" website. now thats not to say whoever is "representing" this company using a legit site to make it appear as this company is ok to do business with. i have replied back just to see what their response would be if i showed inerest in the position they were offering. but i NEVER signed the contract i NEVER downlaoded it to even see what is looked like or anything. so when this company email me back a few days later telling me my first check will be sent in a few days for 2670, im like how is that when i NEVER returned the contract and they clearly stated in the original email that a signed contracted would be needed in order to get started. i would think i real company would make sure all the proper paperwork required hs been submitted before sending money to a stranger for all they know i could keep the money, that was a REDFLAG big time. so i havent received this check yet and when i do i WILL be returning it to the sender immeidately and making a copy of the UNOPENED envelope to ensure that it was indeed untouched by me. i got the orginal email from MONSTER.COM. at first i didnt think too much of it being a scam b/c i know how monster likes to ensure the security of their job seekers. so i will be forwarding the couple of email i have from this company to MONSTER. and once i send that check back im will be contacting the company back and making them aware im not intersted in receiving any for payments from them and that im aware of this being a scam.

************** SCAM WARNING ******************

MBT Security, Inc. Representative Contract

You can read the contract in this email attachment.


You can print the last page of the contract, sign it, make one picture of the signed page (digital picture if you have no scanner) and send this picture with signature back to us via email or to the fax number below or via email.

Our fax number is : XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

In order to start your job today we have some requirements:

1. Be at least 21 years old and have a bank account (in order to deposit checks if needed – IMPORTANT: WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR YOUR BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS OR OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION FROM YOU)
2. Have a postal address where you will receive money orders and cashier checks from our customers.
2. Check your email several times a day (two times each day is needed)
3. You need to respond to our emails same day.
4. Be responsible, hard working and communicable.
5. Be able and know how to cash one check or money order.
6. Have at least one free half hour every day (in the evening or in the morning, your choice) to cash payments that will come from our customers.

Our support team will be next to you in order to have all payments processed same day.

All you need is an established bank account, where you will cash the checks. It really depends where you cash the checks. We do not welcome new bank accounts for our business for a few reasons. First, you won't be able to cash checks fast, because the banks put at least a few weeks' hold to deposits into a new account.


We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell our products.
We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees. That way you can feel absolutely protected and safe.


You will receive various payments from our US or Canada buyers for our products/services and every customer will specify when the payment will be sent the amount and the products that were purchased.

In Europe they ussualy deliver the funds within 10 days if we have one bank account open to one US bank(we have the bank account open to one Spanish bank - this will delay payments with another 3-4 days) and this delay is not profitable for our company.

With US representatives help we can process these payments faster and the customers will be served faster.


We are selling in US 95% from time system alarms . We are also selling other various security products if customers are interested.

If there will be something that you don't know, simply ask our support team and you will have all the answers within few hours or minutes.

One explanation of this job, step by step

1. You agree with our contract, send your postal address and you are ready to process payments.
2. We advertise our products and in 4-5 days after you agreed with terms you start to receive payments from our customers (money orders, checks) made payable to your name and address for instant processing.
3. You cash one payment (check or money order) - at the bank or check cashing store.
4. You deduct your 10% from total amount of the check or money order that you receive and cash.
5. You transfer us 90% minus transfer costs (the transfer costs are paid from our 90%) with bank to bank transfer.
6. You receive another payment and you process it.


Please call me Oliver, my name is Oliver Balack and I will keep you informed regarding payments and procedures.

This job implies only checks/money orders cashing, nothing else is required to work for us. We will never ask you any fees to work for us. If you know to cash a check, this is the job for you. Please don't expect to earn thousands of dollars in the first weeks, we promise that you will earn more than $5,500 every month but first we have to advertise our products in US, you will surely make $500 every week in your first month of work.


To begin this job we need your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS (your postal address) FOR PAYMENTS that will be mailed(shipped) to your postal address:

Full name:
Address:
City, State, Zip code:
Phone number:

Fax the address and also send it via email.


The money orders and cashier checks that will be processed by you can be cleared same day you receive the USPS delivery.

In order to start this job, your response is expected today and also your signature (last page of contract signed).


From the moment we have your approval that you agree with all terms of the contract and your name and address we will start the advertising program and ask customers to send checks and money orders to your address.

· Professional management team with a strong support system

We have stores in Spain and all Europe and we are looking for US representatives to handle US payments.
We are selling various products (security systems) in US and Canada and we need YOU to process all the
payments for these products because here in Europe the money orders and cashier checks are cleared within two weeks or more and is not reliable for our sales.
90% from US buyers don't have the knowledge to pay with bank to bank transfers. You can intermediate our sales (process
payments) and you will be paid with 10% for every payment that you have to process.
Remember that your commission from this job is 10% from every amount that you will receive. This means that if you receive

We Pay Weekly
We have stocks of products for US and Canada customers and we need US representative to intermediate the payments between our company and the end buyers.
To simplify what this job implies: we advertise our software products on US market and because checks that are sent by customers here in Spain are cleared very slow (2 weeks plus shipping delay - more than 3 weeks), we need US representative (you) in order to receive payments for our products (checks, money orders) and cash them same day at the bank.
Your commission is 10% from each money order/ check, if you receive 2-3 checks one day you will make more than $200 every day.

Posted by: nichelle henson at Dec 3, 2006 1:51:08 AM

Here's another check cashing scam to share on your website. It came from information off of CareerBuilder.
Personnally I think CareerBuilder is just as much responsible as the scammer. CareerBuilders processes and ineffectiveness in dealing with this problem are allowing the honest public rights and securities jeopordized in that our personal information is being shared with potential criminals intents.
CareerBuilder does send out a formatted letter explaining that people are misusing the system and are sometimes slipping through.
IN MY OPINION THAT IS NOT A GOOD ENOUGH EXCUSE TO COVER THEIR TRACKS.
A team of CareerBuilders staff is supposed to be
investigating misuse. The only wise and cost effective method is reinventing their software in prevention of misuse and coming to terms that this is a serious problem!!!

We have a Job for you.

To a future employee,

Angie,

Yes, this is very very bad. It's a scam. They could take your money or use your account to launder funds. Call Paypal immediately, report fraud (explain what happened) close your account and get a new one with a new number. Make sure your Paypal password is very secure.

Are you sure you didn't give them your social security number or other account numbers? Does your driver's license have your SSN on it? If they have your SSN this is even more serious and you should place an initial fraud alert on your credit file freeze.

Contact the DMV and report that your driver's license was stolen (explain the details). Ask for a new license with a new number or at the very least put a PIN on there (if they let you do that) or a fraud alert on your driver's license file.

Do not give the scammers any further information of any kind, no matter what they say. Cut off communication with them.

File a complaint with the FBI at http://www.ic3.gov.

Go to this FTC web site to learn more: http://www.consumer.gov/idtheft/

Good luck,

Subject: Re: Out of office director. 2300 week
Hello, vetted

Thanks for contacting CIS Express

We are a company created to assist small vendors from Eastern Europe
and Russia in their work in US and Canada.

E-commerce is now growing fast in that region. The only problem that
stops Eastern European e-commerce is that the region is not supported
by major Internet payment systems.

Our aim is help sellers from Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe to
enter US and Canada markets. We've tried different working schemes but
none of them was good enough. Finally we decided to use P2P agent
method of work.

P2P stands for Person to Person transactions.

We can offer you a job of transaction manager.

Right now we have openings for Transfer processing

Now let me explain your job:

We have a client from Russia who is selling his services to his
client in US. His client is willing to pay him with check or
electronic transfer but our client in Russia can't accept checks or
electronic transfer as they are pretty hard to send to Russia.

You work is to accept Internet transfers to your account and resend it
to our client in Russia using his preferred method of payment (usually
Moneygram).

We are offering you 12% of all money that came to your account.
You are responsible for transfer fees when sending funds to Russia.

We guarantee you a money traffic of at least $18000 a month. Usually
about $40000 a month with an average transfer of $5000-$80000.

Checks processing is about the same. You'll receive checks, deposit
them and after the check cleared you should send 88% to our client
using client's preferred payment method. We offer 12% for such work.

This job is legal and is not needed to be licensed in US and Canada.

Responsible person needed for administrator position. Part-time availability.


Compensation: $5000

Telecommuting is ok.

This is a part-time job.

I see the same person, Paul Restuccia, has contacted other people also looking for Admin work with the same job offer: transaction manager for 12% of the amount to be transferred to Russia via moneygram. It sounded like moneylaundering at first to me, but now I understand it is possible identity theft: he wants you to scan your ID and send it to him! Here's his email to me after I asked for a job description and his website for CIS Express (Google brought me here)

Hello, Danielle.

Thanks for contacting CIS Express

We are a company created to assist small vendors from Eastern Europe
and Russia in their work in US and Canada.

E-commerce is now growing fast in that region. The only problem that
stops Eastern European e-commerce is that the region is not supported
by major Internet payment systems.

Our aim is help sellers from Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe to
enter US and Canada markets. We've tried different working schemes but
none of them was good enough. Finally we decided to use P2P agent
method of work.

P2P stands for Person to Person transactions.

We can offer you a job of transaction manager.

Right now we have openings for Internet transfers and checks processing

Now let me explain your job:

We have a client from Russia who is selling his services to his
client in US. His client is willing to pay him with check or
electronic transfer but our client in Russia can't accept checks or
electronic transfer as they are pretty hard to send to Russia.

You work is to accept Internet transfers to your account and resend it
to our client in Russia using his preferred method of payment (usually
Moneygram).

We are offering you 12% of all money that came to your account.
You are responsible for transfer fees when sending funds to Russia.

We guarantee you a money traffic of at least $18000 a month. Usually
about $30000 a month with an average transfer of $3000-$80000.

Checks processing is about the same. You'll receive checks, deposit
them and after the check cleared you should send 88% to our client
using client's preferred payment method. We offer 12% for such work.

This job is legal and is not needed to be licensed in US and Canada.

Waiting for reply

Paul

Here's his more detailed explanation:

Hello, Danielle.

Here's some info about our company and the whole process:

CIS Express was created in March 2003 to assist small vendors and
individuals from Russia, Ukraine and Eastern European countries in
their work in US and Canada's markets.

Most of our clients are working in adult business or selling software.
Payment is the main problem for such sellers. The most popular methods
of payment for such sellers are checks and electronic transfers.

There are only two methods of payment available Russia and Eastern
European region - services like Western Union and Moneygram or Wire
transfers. Wire transfers and rather complicated and Western Union
and Moneygram are not widely known by US customers and transfer fees
of such services are rather high for P2P transfers. This makes the work

of
individual seller very hard.

Our aim is help such sellers. We've tried different working schemes
but none of them was good enough. Finally we decided to use P2P agent
method of work.

Right now we have over 500 clients who are working with us on
permanent bases. We work as an agent between our clients and
individuals in US. A few years of successful work shows the benefits
of that organization scheme for all parties involved.

Starting with online payment systems now we are also working with
checks processing and direct transfers.

We also provide high level of security for everyone. We check all
seller before we start working with them to verify their legibility
and legibility of the content they are selling. We also verify all our
employees before they are allowed to work with out clients and our
employees are protected from any type of reversals by our policy of
next day refunding (money will be credited from our client's account).
Also note that you'll receive all transfers only AFTER services are
rendered. This protects us from being involved in online fraud and
money laundering schemes.

Our main office is located in Moscow, Russia.
In 2007 we are planning to open our Kiev and New York branches.

Right now we have openings for Checks and wire processing.

Note: we also have a special offer for workers with business accounts

What you need to work with checks.

What you need to start:

1. To have a checking account. At least 4 months old.

2. Be able to accept incoming transfers and resend them in 3 days.
(Only after transfer is cleared at your bank)

3. A copy of your ANY legal ID scanned or faxed to us.
This is needed because we are working with your client's money and
we have to be sure in our employees. This copy will be used ONLY
for verification of Identity.

Scanned copy is preferred
Send scans to this email address

We offer 12% for processing bank transactions.
You are responsible for all transfer fees.
Transfers are usually $8000-$15000
Western Union transfer fee for large amounts is about 4%
Using International wire transfer is about $50

Sample transaction:

1. You receive a check for $15000
2. You deposit this check to your bank account and cash it
3. You should send 88% of funds received to our client.
That would be $13200
4. Transfer funds with our client's preferred method - Moneygram
or Wire transfer.
Sending $13200 with Moneygram would cost you about $500.
You income is about $1300.
Transfers using wire transfers are much cheaper but clients usually
prefer Moneyg

Hey guys! I recently put an item on ebay. I had a guy email me and say he was really interested in my email. But that he had his onw shipper. He said he was out of the country so he had someone who buys things for him and ships them all together. He said he would send me a check for $2500 I was to cash the check and deduct the money for my item plus shipping fees to the shipper. Then I am suppose to western union the rest of the money to the shipper and send him my item. Does this seem like a scam?? I told the guy that my bank would put a hold on it until the check cleared and her said that was no problem the money was good. It all sounds fishy to me. What should I do? I need your opinions.

I have this person who is IM ing me to open a checking account for them.....NO, I'm not going to open this, but who can I report this to.

I was scammed last year out of $1,400.00 and did report it to the FBI like you suggested here and the local police said they turned it over to the FBI. The other person was out of the country and the FBI never contacted me. I kept in touch with the other person, hoping someone would contact me, and they never did.

So, now, I'm trying to contact someone NOW to see if I can get some assistance from the start on this. This person is in Cyprus, stating that they have a company they used to work for that owes them some money. They want me to open an account for them (in my name). It's not going to happen, but I'm trying to get this stopped before it happens to someone else.

If anyone can help, thanks!

I got caught up just recently in one of these scams! I received a check from a Donald Boss for 6320 I endorsed the check to my boyfriend and he depeosited it into his account! The check was a bank check from citibank. The check cleared in about 2 days, I was supposed to wire the money to Russia to a James Seigel and 2 othe correspondences, It was at that point I started reading this sight. Yesterday mister Boss called me personally at home and asked if I had done a balance transfer on his credit card. I asked his name and when I realized this was the guy, I explained as well as I could what had happend but I am not sure if he believed me! HE said he was not worried about the funds because his credit card company would get it back and there would be no harm to him. He just said I would be "contacted" not sure if he meant the police of credit card company. I wonder if myself or my boyfreind can get in trouble, or if this guy will press charges, or if the credit card company will press charges. We never touched the money, it is still there right now waiting to be taken back by the cc company. I have kept all emails from the person giving me instructions. I even printed out his IP and properties from his emails. I am very scared and not sure what I should do except hurry up and wait! The check was made out to my name, it was apparently real, the funds were actually transfered from this guys cc account!

Thanks for any help you can offer!

There is another check cashing scam supposedly from the UK. It's a man named Goodman with Goodman Arts Work Inc in London. DO NOT FALL FOR IT. He starts out by saying he'll send money orders or cashier checks, then after you agree, he says he'll send checks first. When I started asking questions and letting him know that if he sendS any checks, i'm not wiring any money until the checks clear, he stops emailing me. DO NOT FALL FOR IT!!!

I am really glad i found this site, right now i have two checks totaling about 16,000 dollars
i was going to cash these checks for drc-group
but after reading into check cashing scams
i will still go to my bank tomarrow ,but to have them check to see if the checks are fraudulant which now i highly suspect, but i will know with 100% certainty after the bank examines them
my advice to anyone recieving checks to be cashes where you keep 10%, call the phone number listed on the check if there is one, to find out if the company really sent the check, and go to your bank and have it analised to see if it is fraudulant
thanks for your time and im sure glad i didnt cash those checks jeffrey

Posted by: jeffrey jones at Mar 12, 2006 3:20:56 PM

Ok. Heads up. There is two type of scams:
One is with cashing money orders (which is covered here plenty) and other is making friends online. Wether it is through ICQ or SKYPE or MySpace. Be careful guys and girls for that matter. These scammers will chat with you until they gain trust and then they will ask for all kind of personal favors. It could be that mother is ill or something else. As soon as they ask for a favor "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE" shut it down or you WILL loose money. Or worst "go to Jail".
I went through both. Didnt loose a dime because I got it figured out before it happened.
And also look for misspelings in the chat, they talk weird these scammers. They will send you a photo and all that crap. Remember that I warned you. Good Luck.

Posted by: RayLat at Feb 1, 2006 11:52:55 PM

brendie,

i'm sorry, it's a terrible thing. you asked that the bank honor the check. that's what they did. the mistake was wiring the money. see, that account DID have sufficient funds; as you stated, the fraudsters put a STOP PAYMENT on the check...AFTER you wired the funds. so you are left holding the bag. you got cash back, because you had funds in your account, so the bank was not at risk in giving out those funds.

NOW THAT THEY HAD MY CHECKING ACCOUNT NUMBER ON THE BACK OF THE CHECK THAT I DEPOSITED IN MY CHECKING ACCOUNT. NOW SOMEHOW THE WRITER OF THE CHECK IN FOLSOM DRAINED MY CHECKING ACCOUNT OF NEARLY $7,000.00. WHICH IS $3500.00 PLUS THE $2500.00 I SENT HIM FROM MY CHECKING ACCOUNT AFTER DEPOSITING HIS CHECK. AND $1253.52 I GOT FOR MY WORKERS COMPENSATION DISABLIITY I RECIEVE 2 TIMES A MONTH. NOW I'M -$1409.00 UNDER BECAUSE OF THIS PERSON. NOW I'M WONDERING WHY THE BANK WOULD APPROVE THE CHECK SAYING THE WRITER HAD THE FUNDS THEN SUCK THE FUNDS OUT AT THE END OF THE 3 DAY HOLD. WITHOUT NOTIFYING ME OF THIS SITUATION WITH THE CHECKING ACCOUNT.

Hello everyone,

Well, I got scammed hard by warbout tradeing company. I cashed the checks they sent me, my bank cleared them in about two days. I picked the money up from the bank and sent the money via western union to the UK.
One check came back as a stop payment and the other was returned today as a fraid. I just lost over $4000.00 and the bank said if myself and my fience doesn't have the money paid back in 30 days they will have to take further action.
Has anyone been through this and if so what can I do to keep myself and my fience out of trouble? It seems the bank wants our head and is makeing it out like we had something to do with the whole matter.

Thanks
Wes

as you can see, they never address my point about receiving these funds in other ways other than a check. I fired off another email that wasn't nice. note it below

Pieter,

as stated I will accept money orders and cashier's checks as MY preferred
method of payment. Your response is disturbing. I have recieved the checks
and will hold them uncashed until I read your next response.

Quite frankly, the information I recieved indicates that this may be
criminal activity. Your response does not eliminate this concern.

If you are an honest business person you will have no problem addressing
these concerns in MORE DETAIL as I am sure you would want your employees to
have peace of mind.

If not, I will report this and all emails to the proper authorities, along
with the checks I have recieved.

Take me seriously about that.

Sincerely,

Robert Baker

No response. I then decided to change tactics and sent this email this morning. To Date, there has been no response. I smell a scam folks but I wll keep you posted. Hope this helps. See below for the latest email...again, no response.

Pieter,
I am writing again, before your next response because in my heart I WANT to
work for your organization and do a good job. I see the possibilities of
the income and the income would support my family very well. IF my concerns
could be alleviated, trust me, I would be one of your top earners and
producers. However, as stated, I can not jeopordize myself or my family.

This activity though has been associated with fraud and there are several
people who now face criminal and legal charges because of bad checks.

Warbout was mentioned, more than once, in my due dilliegence research. I do
not know if this is a case of a good company being associated with bad ones
unjustly or that it is really a scam.

If this is a scam, I can not expect you to tell me otherwise can I.

So let me ask again. I would love to stay employed. IF you will allow me
to accept Money Orders and Cashier's checks and Western Union only. In
turn, you and the supplier will only be paid via Cashier Check and Money
Order or Western Union. In this way, EVERY ONE is assured that there is no
question about the funds at any time.

As an intelligent business person, I can see no reason why you couldn't or
wouldn't ask a person to send the original sum in either of the forms
mentioned above. What does it hurt. I am even willing to deduct from my
commissions, the cost of the Money Order or Cashier Check that the client
may pay.

Tell me how a legitimate business can not agree with that?

I eagerly await your response.

Sincerely,

Robert Baker.

P.S. I do have the first transaction and boy do I want to follow through on
my committment to you. Help me do that by alleviating my concerns because
IF these checks are indeed fraudulant in any way, they are large enough for
me to be charged with a felony. It is a risk, I won't take for someone who
has been nice via email but extremely vague concerning details.

Thank you and please forgive the tone of my earlier email.

Have a Quality Day.

This is the correspondence surrounding my questions about insufficient funds. I have kept every email. Just want you to be able to compare what you may receive from this company. It it does turn out to be legit, we are not harmed, if not, then hopefully this will save someone the trouble of having there hopes dashed or worse their lives ruined.

Posted by: Robert B at Dec 5, 2005 8:13:42 AM

Dear Pieter,

I have continued to do my due diligence on your company. I have received
some disturbing news from my search. Because of this, please provide the
following information as soon as possible.

1. Your company's U.S. Tax ID number.

2. A list of at least three current sales staff that I can contact
independently about their relationship with your company.

Also please note, that I WILL NOT be cashing any checks received. I WILL
BE HAPPY TO ACCEPT MONEY ORDERS OR CASHIERS CHECKS until my questions are
resolved so that our business relationship can continue during this process.

TO REPEAT, I WILL NOT ACCEPT NOR CASH A CHECK OF ANY KIND OTHER THAN A
CERTIFIED CASHIERS UNTIL MY CONCERNS ARE FULLY ADDRESSED.

To be frank, your organization is now questionable in my mind. As stated, I
will not jeopardize myself or my family. If you decide to end our business
relationship because of my requests, it will speak volumes about your
intentions in the first place.

I look forward to your response and the successful resolution to all my
concerns.

Kindest regards,

Robert B. Baker

This is the latest correspondence I sent to Pieter. Thank God I found this site and have not cashed any checks yet. I will post his reply to me as soon as I recieve it.

Posted by: Robert B at Dec 5, 2005 8:07:14 AM

Unfortunately I need more information than that. I have checked out the company on the internet and did a background check on the E-mail and found out how it actually works. I think I will pass. Thank you for your offer but I will have to decline. There is no way to protect myself in the venture and I can't afford the risk.

On SEPTEMBER 20th, 2005 at approximately 3:45pm, I tried contacting you, but unfortunately was unable to get a hold of you. The main reason for electronically mailing you this letter is to inform you of the reason for my call. Every year we receive over 5,000 entry forms from different lottery players from around the world. Precisely speaking, I was just looking at our network to find out that you were selected as a prize winner on November 24th, 2004 and you havn't claimed your winnings, for the sum of US $1,000.000 MILLION DOLLARS. Usually when a winner doesn't claim their money there should be a note that says why the winner has not claimed their money, and the client file will be closed. So I am mailing in regards to know why you have not made any effort to claim your money. You have $1,000,000 Million sitting here, waiting for you. I dontknow why somebody will wait that long to claim their money?? To elaborate more, this draw was held in Australia, where our head office is located. Moreover, if we did not hear from you within 3 weeks from the day this letter was sent, your file will close and you will no longer be able to claim your winnings. Our main payment office is located in North America. This is where you will be receiving your amount of winnings US$1,000.000 MILLION DOLLARS from. Nevertheless, according to the federal and international law concerning the personal collection of prize winnings, your bonding fees, broker fees, and tarrif fees, have already been deducted from your winnings. So congratulations once again.
For more information concerning your winnings, please contact your Claims Agent
MR JOHN MARTINS
LOTTORYNG1@YAHOO.COM
when is a better time to get a hold of you. Due to security precautions, we advise that you keep your winning information confidential until your claim has been processed and you have received your certified bank cheque of $ 1,000.000 million dollars paid out to you. This is part of our security protocol to avoid double claiming and unwarranted abuse of this program by some participants.
NOTE: In order to avoid unnecessary delays and complications, please remember to quote your reference and Lot numbers in every correspondence with your agent. Furthermore, should there be any change of your address, do inform your claim agent as soon as possible. Congratulations once again from all members of our staff and thank you for being a part of our promotional program.


Congratulations from me and members of staff of THE INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY.

Yours faithfully,
Mr lloyd jordan

Hello Everyone,

I have become a victim of the same scams as you all have. I was contacted by Venom Soft Labs with a job offer of Financial Agent Position. All I had to do was collect checks and cash them, keep a percentage for myself and send them the rest. All together I cashed six checks and 3 were fine and 3 bounced. The owner of the store where I cashed the checks wants his money and is seeking charges against me. If anyone has any information as to how I/we can protect ourselves and not go to jail please email me. I have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and the owner of the store has even contacted my job who is trying to get some kind of head way on my behalf and show the police that I am a victim to keep me out of jail. I understand how you all feel and we need to tell people about this and try to rally support for us. We have become VICTIMS of a malicious person/people that only care about themselves and satisfying their greed at the demise and destruction of others.

This ensures the high quality of implants and instruments on which hospitals and surgeons alike have come to depend.

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 Internationals Health Care has its headquarters in Ireland, Germany,Russia. As such we do not yet have stores or an alternative store in the United States. Until then we will always need representatives in the U.S. to take care of some financial matters. The problem we are facing is time. The time necessary for our company to receive the funds paid by our customers from U.S. by checks and money orders. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks including shipping to clear these checks in Europe. We need to clear the checks and money orders inside U.S. and then have the funds transferred to our company in Ireland. 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 send y
ou 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.

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.

First step in this job is for you to wait at home for checks/money orders sent by our customers on your name as per our instructions. For this to be possible we need your basic personal info such as full name, full address and name of the bank you will use for cashing the checks. If anyone asks for those on our behalf please do not give out this info. After you receive the checks/money orders you will have to go to the bank to cash them. This will happen of course after the bank clears them. The time to clear the checks depends on the bank. We suggest that you use a major bank that takes a minimum of time to do so. We also need you to use your personal or business bank account to speed up the process. You can open another one account for work with us only. After you
have cash in hand you will have to contact us at the same e-mail address and then you will receive additional instructions on how to send the money to us. We send you more detailed information about ourselves and you could learn our commercial activity in which we ask you to become our partner better.

If you will interest in our offer and to earn money with help of our business, then we send you some information how you can be registered and give you our contact phones also we give you a reference to our Site.

For basic information we will have to use e-mails. Phone support is only for more sensitive issues that might appear after signing the contract. We will support any fees involved from receiving, cashing and transferring the money to our company. Your commission and salary are not subject to any fee deduction. The 5% off of each check/money order and the monthly $1800 are your net income.


We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell our products. We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees. That way you can feel absolutely protected and safe.

To begin this job we need your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS via email for payments that will be mailed (shipped) to you and a FAX or a scanned copy of your signed contract via e-mail. Please follow these instructions exactly, everything that is written in red is a must:

You should not have anything to worry about as there shall be no financial requirements from your side. Firstly, you should note that this kind of business transaction is based on reputation. As we have not met before, we have to develop trust for each other to see this through.

This is how it works, all our customers within your jurisdiction will be directed to you for payment. Note that some of them will like to pay direct to your account and some will like to pay by cheques and your work as our representative is to cash these money and cheques deduct your percentage from it and the balance made payable into our designated account that will be available to you later. Now we will like to have your contact address and also your phone direct number and fax.

These details will be given to our different customers for the necessary contact for payment.

After you receive the checks/money orders you will have to go to the bank to cash them. This will happen of course after the bank clears them. The time to clear the checks depends on the bank. We suggest that you use a major bank that takes a minimum of time to do so. We also need you to use your personal or business bank account to speed up the process.

After you have cash in hand you will have to contact us at the same e-mail address and then you will receive additional instructions on how to send the money to us. We do not provide a phone number yet because we have many collaborators. For basic information we will have to use e-mails.

Sonera LTD... Please do not fall for this scam. I was told by them that they did not have warehouses here and needed for me to ship and wire money on their behalf. Like a fool I fell for it. Now I am not sure what to do other than to report it to the FBI.

Posted by: Sabrena at Oct 26, 2005 6:28:04 PM

I received a e-mail from a company claiming to be from France. It stated that they had one position open for someone to join their company and cash checks and money orders for them. They stated that their funds was taking 10 days to 2 weeks and that that wasn't profitable. I would receive money the same day by deducting 10% when I cash these. They wanted my telephone number and name for more information.
From what I have read this is a scam. I haven't responded. Please can someone tell me if it is?
I came from Monster.com where my resume is posted.

This email was received after posting a resume on monster.com. I halfway thought this was a real offer until I did some research. Everyone be alert and don't let these scum make money off of you.

I've been getting e-mails lately from a "JR Longo" and they are being generated from the Careerbuilder.com site. When I Googled "JR Longo, I got the following off the results page:

ScamSafe: Reporting check cashing & other Internet scamsI have agreed to work with a scam. Jus to get information to pass on to the autorities, to track down ... "JR Longo" Date: Tue, 17 May 2005 10:35:59 -0400 ...

When I clicked on the link, it took me to the top of the page with the check scam post, with no information about "JR Longo." I figure that the e-mails are a scam because all they ask for is personal info with no real job descriotion or company name (unless I missed that somewhere in the e-mails). Anyone have any info about this? Here's a c/p of the e-mail...

Sonera LTD - I think I to maybe pulled into a scam, so far I only handled 1 check and sent 1 package.

I checked out the company on the web seemed ligitamate at the time, but something keeps nagging me.. so I found this scam page and there is one out there.

I am going to report it and ask what I should do with the other 4 checks they want me to cash. They are all money orders and I verified them with the bank that they are indeed good and valed. they have not been stolen or counterfiet.

These guys/ girls must really be good at this.. and I to am a dummy... again needed the job.

got mine from MONSTER.COM and I replied to the add.

Hi there:
I had received this type of email about one year back i.e.Aug.31,2004. When I checked up with Legal Cell here in Toronto, Canada, I understand this is a fraud. I had given this person called Alex Adashav with email id alexad@atriumlabs.com my personal information like name and telephone number. However, the telephone number is now changed, as also his email id is not existing now.

When I wanted to share this information today with my friend who is interested to carry out this job, I searched on internet, and got the information about fraud. Anyway, I shall inform my friend not to involve in these activities.

Bye, and take care,

I posted my resume on Monster.com and never received suspicious offers but when I sent emails to job offers on Career Builder this is what I received. I always research companies online and it seems this offer is being sent in many different ways and using many names. This is a scam if you have been scammed by them it is best to report it there are sites online to report scams and before depositing any checks at your bank they will check to see if the check is legitmate before you deposit it. Below is a copy of the job offer:

Hi Flex Software, Inc. Representative Contract --- $5,000 ; PART - TIME JOB

You can find the contract at the end of this email.


You can print the last page of the contract, sign it, make one picture of the signed page (digital picture if you have no scanner) and send this picture with signature back to us via email or to the fax number below or via email.

Our USA fax number is 202-350-9495


In order to start your job today we have some requirements:

1. Be at least 20 years old and have a bank account (in order to deposit checks if needed – IMPORTANT: WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR YOUR BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS OR OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION FROM YOU)
2. Have a postal address where you will receive money orders and cashier checks from our customers.
2. Check your email several times a day (two times each day is needed)
3. You need to respond to our emails same day.
4. Be responsible, hard working and communicable.
5. Be able and know how to cash one check or money order.
6. Have at least one free half hour daily

Our support team will be next to you in order to have all payments processed same day.

All you need is an established bank account, where you will cash the checks. It really depends where you cash the checks. We do not welcome new bank accounts for our business for a few reasons. First, you won't be able to cash checks fast, because the banks put at least a few weeks' hold to deposits into a new account.


We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell our software products.
We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees. That way you can feel absolutely protected and safe.


You will receive various payments from our US or Canada buyers for our software products/services and every customer will specify when the payment will be sent the amount and the products that were purchased.

In FRANCE they usually deliver the funds within 10 days if we have one bank account open to one US bank (we have the bank account open to one FRENCH bank -- this will delay payments with another 3-4 days) and this delay is not profitable for our company.

With US representatives help we can process these payments faster and the customers will be served faster.


We are selling in US 95% from time software programs and sometimes IT hardware. We are also selling other various IT products if customers are interested.

If there will be something that you don't know, simply ask our support team and you will have all the answers within few hours or minutes.

Please call me Luanna, my name is Luanna Esteban and I will keep you informed regarding payments and procedures.

Here is step by step explanation of entire process:

1. You agree with our contract and are ready to process payments.
2. We advertise our products and in 4-5 days after you agreed with terms you start to receive payments from our customers (money orders, checks) made payable to your name and address for instant processing
3. You cash one payment (check or money order) - at the bank or check cashing store
4. You deduct your 10% from total amount of the check or money order that you receive and cash.
5. You transfer us 90% minus transfer costs (the transfer costs are paid from our 90%) with bank to bank transfer
6. You receive another payment and you process it.


This job implies only checks/money orders cashing, nothing else is required to work for us. We will never ask you any fees to work for us. If you know to cash a check, this is the job for you. Please don't expect to earn thousands of dollars in the first weeks, we promise that you will earn more than $5,000 every month but first we have to advertise our products in US, you will surely make $600 every week in your first month of work.


To begin this job we need your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS (your postal address -- home address) FOR PAYMENTS that will be mailed(shipped) to your postal address:

Full name:
Address:
City, State, Zip code:
Phone number:

Your name and address must be sent also via email, sometimes fax messages or pictures are not readable 100%


The money orders and cashier checks that will be processed by you can be cleared same day you receive the USPS delivery.

Your response is expected today and also your signature (last page of contract signed).


From the moment we have your approval that you agree with all terms of the contract and your name and address we will start the advertising program and ask customers to send checks and money orders to your address.


Thank you

Yeah, I just got the exact same e-mail as the above one today. When are these guys going to be busted?

Posted by: Julie at Aug 28, 2005 12:21:23 PM

I got this one directly by e-mail; nothing to do with careerbuilder. It looks like they got a bigger list of e-mails or someone with a bigger list copied their scam.


Dear Candidate,

International Health Care Inc., since 1990, is a privately owned British Company,
with offices in London and manufacturing facilities in Sheffield.
International Health Care Inc. is based in the center of London,
and offers a rapid delivery service to all customers worldwide.
The IHC instrument and prosthetic loan system is increasingly popular
and assists our new customers to become familiar with any surgical procedure
at low cost. Forty percent of the total Company business is export
with worldwide distribution. The Company has been certified
by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics since 1996.
International Health Care Inc. continues to excel in the fabrication
and delivery of endoskeleton and exoskeleton-style lower extremity prostheses
and mayo-electric and body powered upper extremity prostheses.
We also provide a full range of orthotic products and supplies.
The cornerstone of the Company's philosophy is compassionate,
personal service with synergetic reliance on experience and continuing education.

IHC's manufacturing unit in Sheffield is staffed by men and women
from the heart of the highly skilled British Steel industry, and is also equipped
with the most modern computerized CNC machinery and measuring technology.
This ensures the high quality of implants and instruments on which hospitals
and surgeons alike have come to depend.

In December 1991, IHC received certification for ISO 9001:1994 and EN 46001:1993
quality systems. In April 1995 IHC Ceramics demonstrated compliance
of the Supravit. Hydroxyapatite Ceramic Coating to all relevant standards.
All products produced and coated by IHC are entitled to carry the much sought after CE Mark.

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
Internationals Health Care has its headquarters in London, UK.
As such we do not yet have stores or an alternative store in the United States.
Until then we will always need representatives in the U.S. to take care
of some financial matters. The problem we are facing is time. The time necessary
for our company to receive the funds paid by our customers from U.S. by checks
and money orders. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks including shipping
to clear these checks in Europe. We need to clear the checks and money orders
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 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.

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/money orders sent
by our customers on your name as per our instructions. For this to be possible
we need your basic personal info such as full name, full address
and name of the bank you will use for cashing the checks. If anyone asks
for those on our behalf please do not give out this info. After you receive
the checks/money orders you will have to go to the bank to cash them.
This will happen of course after the bank clears them. The time to clear
the checks depends on the bank. We suggest that you use a major bank
that takes a minimum of time to do so. We also need you to use your personal
or business bank account to speed up the process. There is not need
for a special bank account to make this happen and creating a new account
will slow down the process. After you have cash in hand you will have
to contact us at the same e-mail address and then you will receive
additional instructions on how to send the money to us. We do not provide
a phone number yet because we have many collaborators. For basic information
we will have to use e-mails. Phone support is only for more sensitive issues
that might appear after signing the contract. We will support any fees involved
from receiving, cashing and transferring the money to our company.
Your commission and salary are not subject to any fee deduction.
The 5% off of each check/money order and the monthly $1800 are your net income.

We do make background research on all the international customers before
we sell our products. We also verify the checks for funds availability
before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem,
we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees. That way you can feel
absolutely protected and safe.

To begin this job we need your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS (your postal address)
via email for payments that will be mailed (shipped) to you and a FAX
or a scanned copy of your signed contract via e-mail.

Fill in the following information and send it to us by e-mail:

E-mail address:
Full name:
Postal Address:
City, State, Zip code:
Bank you will use (name of the bank only):
Phone number:

Due to the fact that we receive tens of faxes per day please confirm
that you have done so and also send your personal info that you filled
in the contract via e-mail.

Be careful! I was contacted by 2 different companies that "retrieved" my information from careerbuilder. The one company was void computers and the other was latvianit.........which turned out to be the same scam under different names because they keep getting caught!!

Posted by: LJ at Aug 22, 2005 7:33:45 AM

Responding to your posts asking about Western Force, Inc and, yes, I have heard of them...and worked for them. I discovered they are a scam outfit buying goods with fraudulently obtained credit cards and then have them shipped overseas. They also pay using counterfeit checks. When I found out, I quit. I believe as of 3 weeks ago they were shut down by unknown parties. Their website is unaccessible now and my last communication with the perps was through a yahoo e address instead of the original through their website. I was in contact with the FBI about the company, but their only action was to say "don't do it, it's PROBABLY a scam", and they didn't want to take a report on them. Hope this helps.

I received an email from Logidis Pro Software last month. They got my information from Careerbuilder.com. Unfortunately I fell for their scam and am now $2579 in debt at my bank as the only check I received and cashed was returned "NO SUCH BANK OR ACCOUNT". I wish I knew then what I know now. I did contact careerbuilder.com after I was notified by my bank and they told me that these people use stolen credit cards to pose as businesses. They have kicked Logidis Pro Software off of their system many times. Careerbuilder.com also told me to file a report with my local law enforcement agency as well as FTC.GOV and IFCCFBI.GOV.

I did contact careerbuilder.com after I was notified by my bank and they told me that these people use stolen credit cards to pose as businesses. They have kicked Logidis Pro Software off of their system many times.

CAREFUL

they send attachment with information uncorrect of the company (I checked with the authority, VAT number and business number do not exists)
they offer 5% on any TRANSFER OF MONEY TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT


Hello!
I attached the contract. You need to sign it and send the scan back.
Your main job will be receiving payment from customers. Payment will be
coming to your bank account. Then you send money by western union. 5% of
that transfer is your commission (about $500 a week).
I am sorry for the delay. Probably the e-mail I sent didn't reach you.
Hope to work together and waiting for your soon reply!
Thanks. Peter

Anyone heard of westernforce.biz?

Posted by: Teresa at Jun 27, 2005 7:07:38 PM

Well as of today, I feel a little better. Yes I am a dummy too. I fell for WRC. CREATIONS Michael Guest. I intended to cash the check, and the man from the check cashing place took my ID and check to the police....stating I had intent to cash a fraudlent check...I didn't want to deposit it in my account...It did seem too good to be true,,,,But like everyone else, I was curious and anxious,,, and needed a job. I too may be facing felony charges. I am an unemployed mother of 4, can someone please help.......:( I need good advice. The detective has my ID and the check, he is out on vacation right now and will be back in 3 weeks to handle this. I am going to send him to this web site, so he can see that I too am a victim. THE CHECK DID NOT GET CASH

Posted by: Sharon at Jun 23, 2005 2:16:59 PM

I had the WRC Creations Web Design check scam contact me thru Careerbuilder.com. I sent the info to careerbuilder.com and this was their reply:

Thank you for contacting Careerbuilder.com. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate you sending us this information. We can confirm that the email you received from this employer is advertising a fraudulent job opportunity.

We are dedicated to removing fraudulent companies from our website and we rely on the help of our customers to do so. At this time, we have shutdown this employer’s account and terminated their ability to use any of the products and services on our website. In appropriate cases, we will also share information with the FBI, Secret Service, and local law enforcement agencies across the country to further combat this type of fraudulent activity.

So it appears careerbuilders.com is at least trying to police this.

Posted by: Gary at Jun 22, 2005 2:42:35 PM

"Pat Conroy" just sent me an e-mail to cash checks for International Health Care. Thanks to all for the alerts!

They can pound sand!

Posted by: doug at Jun 15, 2005 5:08:19 AM

Here is a new Scam with a company called Logidis Pro Software, Inc. - I am so glad this website was so easy to find. I have sent an email to Career Builder already (great that you had the info handy) here is my great job offer:

Logidis Pro Software, Inc. Representative Contract

You can read the contract in this email attachment.

You can print the last page of the contract, sign it, make one picture of the signed page (digital picture if you have no scanner) and send this picture with signature back to us via email or to the fax number below or via email.

Our USA fax number is 619-374-1489

In order to start your job today we have some requirements:

1. Be at least 21 years old and have a bank account (in order to deposit checks if needed – IMPORTANT: WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR YOUR BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS OR OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION FROM YOU)
2. Have a postal address where you will receive money orders and cashier checks from our customers.
2. Check your email several times a day (two times each day is needed)
3. You need to respond to our emails same day.
4. Be responsible, hard working and communicable.
5. Be able and know how to cash one check or money order.
6. Have at least one free half hour daily if needed.

Our support team will be next to you in order to have all payments processed same day.

All you need is an established bank account, where you will cash the checks. It really depends where you cash the checks. We do not welcome new bank accounts for our business for a few reasons. First, you won't be able to cash checks fast, because the banks put at least a few weeks' hold to deposits into a new account.

We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell our software products.
We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees. That way you can feel absolutely protected and safe.

You will receive various payments from our US or Canada buyers for our software products/services and every customer will specify when the payment will be sent the amount and the products that were purchased.

In FRANCE they usually deliver the funds within 10 days if we have one bank account open to one US bank (we have the bank account open to one FRENCH bank -- this will delay payments with another 3-4 days) and this delay is not profitable for our company.

With US representatives help we can process these payments faster and the customers will be served faster.

We are selling in US 95% from time software programs and sometimes IT hardware. We are also selling other various IT products if customers are interested.

If there will be something that you don't know, simply ask our support team and you will have all the answers within few hours or minutes.

Please call me Linda, my name is Linda Gerard and I will keep you informed regarding payments and procedures.

Here is step by step explanation of entire process:

1. You agree with our contract and are ready to process payments.
2. We advertise our products and in 4-5 days after you agreed with terms you start to receive payments from our customers (money orders, checks) made payable to your name and address for instant processing
3. You cash one payment (check or money order) - at the bank or check cashing store
4. You deduct your 10% from total amount of the check or money order that you receive and cash.
5. You transfer us 90% minus transfer costs (the transfer costs are paid from our 90%) with bank to bank transfer
6. You receive another payment and you process it.

This job implies only checks/money orders cashing, nothing else is required to work for us. We will never ask you any fees to work for us. If you know to cash a check, this is the job for you. Please don't expect to earn thousands of dollars in the first weeks, we promise that you will earn more than $5,000 every month but first we have to advertise our products in US, you will surely make $600 every week in your first month of work.

To begin this job we need your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS (your postal address -- home address) FOR PAYMENTS that will be mailed(shipped) to your postal address:

Full name:
Address:
City, State, Zip code:
Phone number:

Your name and address must be sent also via email, sometimes fax messages or pictures are not readable 100%

The money orders and cashier checks that will be processed by you can be cleared same day you receive the USPS delivery.

Your response is expected today and also your signature (last page of contract signed).


From the moment we have your approval that you agree with all terms of the contract and your name and address we will start the advertising program and ask customers to send checks and money orders to your address.

Thank you

Re: Triangle Smart Software

Their QCHEX went through only to be stopped as a bad check. They are a total scam outfit. I am reporting this to as many people as possible including the IFCC and the local authorities, and the bank.
