Company Representative scams, Payment Processing scams and other Employment scams.
#4393 by John DeLaney Mon Aug 04, 2008 2:27 am
This is a typical fake job scam, you will be sent cheques to cash, deduct your fee, usually 10% and send the remainder via western Union to a third person, in our experience, they are usually in Nigeria, although this is not always true, scammers are everywhere.

You will be requested to URGENTLY cash and transfer the money, as it can take up to 6 months before your bank discovers the cheque is fake or stolen, any money you have withdrawn on it will be reclaimed from you, and you will possibly face criminal charges for filing fake or stolen cheques.

If the bank discovers the cheque is fake while you are there, you may be arrested and charged at that time.

The first email below is what would probably be a cheque mule position, you will be sent fake cheques to post onto another person, so creating a cut off point for the scammer. As all you have from him is a (fake) email address, with no real details, you will be the one arrested for distributing the cheques.
