Details of Scam Report
This scam is disguised as a job offer. The aim is for you to receive bogus checks via postal mail, to cash them using your bank account, and then to send 90% of the cash via wire transfer to the scammers. You will be on the hook for the amount of the check, and the scammers will have your money.
Following are extracts from the email...
Your duties are:
-To receive payments from our customers which are mainly in form of checks (only U.S. emitted checks, no international checks will be sent to you); -Cashing the checks using your existing bank account;Do not use checks-cashing stores, they charge too much, sometimes even 10% of the total value of the checks. -Forwarding as a money transfer that we pay for the remaining balance from payments after deducting your 10% commission from each order you process. . . .
What we need you to do is to provide us an address where you can receive our customer checks. We need someone who can receive the money through this method of payment. Regarding the check process all you have to do is to receive the checks our customers will send to your address, take them to your bank, cash them and send the remainder amount to us after deducting all fees incurred and your commission. . . .
Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your existing bank account, we don't accept newly created bank accounts because it slows the cashing process. Deduct your percentage and forward the balance to the company attorney manager via a western union money transfer, the name will be given to you later after cashing a payment.
