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.

Good tidings to you as you read. My name is Jack Long. I am a freelance re=
searcher. I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job=
in which you could earn a lot. I just resigned my job as a research scient=
ist for ARINI (Agricultural Research Institute of Northern Ireland but I s=
till work as a freelance consultant for the institute which gives me very m=
uch time to do my own work which is basically being a freelance researcher =
who could be employed by research institutes to do research projects anywhe=
re in the world. I just came about your email address and your brief profil=
e through an email listing affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR US?=20
Presently, I have just been granted a funding to head a research project in=
the tropical regions of West Africa and the U.A.E. regarding rare and vuln=
erable plant species and this would be commencing very soon, However my fun=
ding were by my American counterparts which sent me the bunch of payments m=
ostly in US based money orders. Getting an accountant in the states or open=
ing an account would have been my best choice but I have a deadline to meet=
and taking any of those choices would cost me time and a whole lot of othe=
r requirements I am not ready to deal with, as I would be traveling a lot i=
n the meantime. So presently, assuming you would be able to deal with cash,=
I would be willing to employ you on contract basis to be my payment repres=
entative back in the states, this way I could issue and make these money or=
ders out to you, you could then cash them easily, withdraw 10% of the total=
amount on these money orders as your commission and then send the rest bac=
k to me through Western Union wire transfer.=20
These payments are in Money Orders or Checks and they would be written out =
to you in your name and sent to you via courier, so all you need do is proc=
ess the payments, then deduct your percentage and wire the rest back.=20
10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 USD via checks or m=
oney orders on our behalf. You will cash the payments and keep 700 USD (10%=
from $7000) for yourself! At the beginning your commission will equal 10%,=
though later it will increase up to 12%!=20
You do not need any office because you will work as an independent contract=
or right from your home or office. Your job is absolutely legal. You can ea=
rn up to $3000-4000 monthly depending on time you will spend for this job. =
You do not need any capital to start. The employees who make efforts and wo=
rk hard have a strong possibility to become managers. Anyway our employees =
never leave us.=20
This is absolutely legal, that's why you have to fill a contract!=20
I would be glad if you accept my proposal and I intend to commence On start=
ing as soon as you are ready. If you are interested, email me Back so we co=
uld make concluding arrangements. All responses should be Sent to my privat=
e email; email@example.com
Please note when replying fill the format below:
To get started, I will need the following (6) details.
A. Your FULL NAME=20
B. Your Address where the Payments should be sent to via courier.=20
C. Telephone numbers (Cell phone and home phone but not voice mail.)
