How are you doing today? We got the information provided by you. It has come to our notice that posting Sponsored Ads on requires credit card which you may not have. So our firm has decided that you will receive a Certified check of $1,350.00 which includes your $200.00 weekly wages to prove our sincerity to you regarding this posting job offered to you and the remaining funds will be sent to A CAPITAL ONE COMPANY district HQ where a special credit card specifically for posting ads will be created with your full name and address with the remaining amount. This credit card will be used to post Sponsored Ads by you whenever we send you a directory, so you wont be having problems posting the ads for us. Note that the reason we are sending the funds to you in excess is because you have to send the remaining funds in your name for them to process the credit card for you with your information. We also want you to know that your information is safe and will be kept private and confidential at all times. The remaining funds will be sent by you via Money Gram Money Transfer. Get back to us if this is OK by you so we can process the payment. Also we would like you to select a Money Gram location close to you so we can let the Credit card producing company know in advance the nearby location where the funds is coming from. You will have to send the name and address of the Money Gram location you have selected to us. We await your response asap.

Warm Regards,
Josh Welton.
