a job on craigslist that is a scam 
Smith Frank
Email Address:
Scammer sent me an email stating that he will pay me $550.00 a week to help out with humanitarian efforts for Asia. First told me that he will send me funding to send out packages to orphanages, then switched the story to tell me to take my portion of pay from the funds and send the rest through money gram to a woman. He kept avoiding my questions of formal employment documentation. Very secretive with the information he is giving me. I am expected to receive the payment today but I told him to stop shipment or that I will overnight it back because this does not seem like a legit job opportunity. He told me that this was an assistant position and now its just seeming like a scam to me. I don't understand why he would send a check to me to deposit it in my bank to then transfer funds to anyone. I was never given an interview and never even spoke to the person on the phone.
