Good Day,

I am Robert King, and I'm British (born and living in UK.) I'm a
freelance researcher. I am to head a environmental research in Asia, which
is commencing soon. I do a lot of traveling to cover various part of my
research.
However most of my projects is being funded by American/Canadian
counterparts
who send me payments via US/Canada based bank Money Orders and checks.
Which I have problem cashing, because it takes up to 4-6 weeks to clear over
here.
Getting an accountant in the states or opening an account would have been
my best choice but I have deadline to meet and taking any of those choices
would cost me time and a whole lot of other requirements, which I will not
be able to cope with.
I found your email via an online surveyed listing, and I am emailing you to
offer you a part time job
of helping me cash checks/Money Orders in the States/Canada.
Which you will be getting a 10% payment from any amount of check you receive
as your commission for cashing the checks.
If You're interested, you are to provide me with the below information to
get started .

Your Address (NOT P.O Box):

Thanks Torontolawyer. :D

That is a classic employment/check scam. The checks will be fraudulent or forged on stolen account information. The person thinking they have a job of processing payments will end up responsible financially and possible legally as well.

Have you sent a payment to a scammer with Western Union and now realize it's a scam? If the payment has not been picked up, you can cancel it immediately! 1-800-448-1492

That's not a email address I've seen a scammer use before (It's 100% scam though). Scammers lately do seem to have realised that there other free email addresses other than Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail etc.
Can you quote the whole email, including the headers? Less your email address of course. I'd like to see where he is.
