Company Representative scams, Payment Processing scams and other Employment scams.

Victims of this scammer receive fake cheques and are asked to send money for the software licence from the fake funds.
Because the cheque is fraudulent, the bank will eventually claw back the money from the victim, close their account and inform the police. The victim will have a bad credit rating at the very least but is more likely to face the courts and possibly go to prison.

Other victims are recruited as money mules in order to launder these stolen funds and some will be employed to print and mail out these fake cheques. They too will face financial difficulty and imprisonment is almost guaranteed.


If you have received the email below, please do not reply to it. Simply ignore this thief.

Thanks! They tried to "purchase" something from me but the story was too ridiculous:

Thank you for the email. I went through your website and found the
work " Interloken Trail 4, 8 x 10 Pastel ( Original )" "" interesting.
Can I have a detailed information about the work, its availability
and pricing? As soon as we reach a concrete agreement on pricing, I
can instruct my personal assistant to process a check to you for
the payment of the work so that my mover can have it picked up along
with my properties that are to be moved to Stockholm.

I await your email soonest.
Regards,
Suzanne Lawrence


Stockholm indeed.
