Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following "work-at-home" email. Be aware of these offers. In most of these offers the real deal is that they send you a false check (that may be honoured in the first place) and you return 90% of it by Western Union. When the check after a while bounces, you have lost all the money you sent.

If you received a similar email, you should go to the homepage to read more about 419 fraud.

Hello,
 
My name is Derek Trotter and I am an artist. I live in England . I have been doing artwork since I was a small child when I was in Canada were I took interest in arts that gives me about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or hair brush mixed with color pencils. I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer. I have been selling my art for the last 4 to 5 years and have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines. I have sold in galleries, museums and to private collectors from all around the world. I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans; they are always offering to pay with a  MONEY ORDER, which is difficult for me to cash here in England .
 
I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for me as a partime worker and I am willing to pay for every transaction, which wouldn't affect our present state of work, someone who would help me receive payments from my customers in the states. I mean someone that is responsible and reliable, because the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive, I am working on setting up a branch in the state, and so for now I need a representative in the united states and canada who will be handling the payment aspect.
 
These payments are in money order and they would come to you in your name, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and wire the rest back. But the problem I have is trust, but I have my way of getting anyone that gets away with our money.
 
It wouldnʼt cost you any amount are to receive payments which will be sent to you by FedEx or UPS from my business partners, which would come in form of a money order then u are to cash it and send the cash to me via western union money transfer all western union charges will be deducted from the money. If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as possible.
 
Regards,
 
Derek
