Please don't fall for this...you're not that blonde :)

This is an out and out scam.

I was going to say at first is that they will send you forged money orders/cashiers checks, let you keep a %, and then you wire/WU/whatever the rest back to them. Not only is this illegal for them, it could land you in prison too.


But, this one you posted is different. Since they are offering to wire YOU money, there's got to be a catch. Notice how they ask for your bank name? They're going to get your account information and clear it out...


Or, they're going to tell you that you need to wire $X in "good faith" money...

Actually there was a scam like this posted at Monster a year or so ago - they were using the name of a real guy who's a painter and they said "We need someone to be able to process payments for paintings etc..." So I contacted the guy (the artist) and asked him if he was aware of it - he was pretty upset that someone was using his name to try to rip people off.

I was surprised though that Monster let that one slip by - people may have thought it was a legitimate job offer since it was posted there, and it was up for a few weeks before getting pulled.

Winbig has this one right. If it was legit, it would be paying around $12 per hour, and you would probably find you make less than that.

They could be wiring money from other accounts they hacked into. The details are irrelevant, you will lose out and it is you who will get convicted for money laundering, fraud, etc.

My hunch is they'd get bank info (account numbers), and then clean out your account.

If they ever did wire me the money, I'd just keep all of it. To heck with the 30%. Besides, I'd need to pay fo rmy defense lawyer somehow :)

Another twist to this (We'll never know, I'm sure) is that once they get you on the "hook," they'll ask for photo ID/passport, SS#, etc, and use that information to steal your identity.

HAHAHAHAHA I love that, we have many poorly educated people in the UK but im pretty sure that none of us could bring out grammar like that, quite amazing.

No doubt hes african of some sort and attempting to repeat the Nigerian scams of a few years ago. how people fall for these is beyond me.

Ive recieved some good looking clones of bank emails of late and they look the bizz until you get right down to the fine print and the grammar starts to look a bit iffy.

Always gives it away though when its a bank you dont even have hahaha.

Nice try though I say full marks for effort.
