The typical job scam. They send you fake checks and you are left owing the bank possibly tens of thousands of dollars when the checks bounce.
No phone numbers, no address, no website (though that's no guarantee that a company is real), free webmail addresses and accepting checks and paying back by Western Union = scam

Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United US without first registering the company name. Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of loosing the customers out rightly.

Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international Checks 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 is to coordinate payments from customers and Help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales. Our Sales Representative makes 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 checks the products.

Even worse, the bank can then report YOU, not the scammer for cheque fraud.

The scam repies on the fact that the bank will show the balance in your account, even though the cheque hasn't cleared yet. It still takes them an age to discover that the cheque is forged or stolen, by which time the 90% you sent to the scammer is long gone.

Wow! I need you and thank you for the information.


So I can close this chapter with no more fretting, right? Thanks so much for your help.
