Trabajo en casa

¿Recibiste una carta de un extraño o de una compañía de la que nunca escuchaste, ofreciéndote dinero fácil en un empleo de trabajo en casa? Ellos típicamente te ofrecerán el 10% del pago que pediste y que recibas de los clientes. El 90% restante lo tienes que enviar por Western Unión.

La organización entera es un fraude. No es una compañía y no hay clientes. Ellos te enviarán cheques falsos o robados u órdenes de dinero. Tu banco te forzará a aceptarlo primero, y tú serás forzado a enviar el 90% por Western Unión. Cuando tu banco, algunas semanas después reconozca el problema, ellos tomarán el dinero de regreso desde tu cuenta y perderás todo el dinero que enviaste. En lo más alto de eso te arriesgas a ser arrestado por manejar dinero falsificado.

La idea entera de dejar que los clientes paguen a través de ti en lugar de hacerlo directamente a la compañía no tiene sentido.

En algunas de esas estafas ellos explican que quieren que tú seas el intermediario porque “La Tasa por transferencia internacional de dinero” es menor para transferencias individuales que para compañías. Esta tasa no existe.

Por favor, ignora ofertas de este tipo.

I received the following letter from a friend. She was a victim of a work-at-home scam:

To Whom It May Concern:

I am the victim of an Internet crime.  I recently received an email for a job opportunity.  The job duty is to help this company clearing checks and they let me keep 10% commission for the transaction.  All fees including money transfer agency commission and bank charges should be taken from the remaining 90%.  The rest amount should be sent to the authorized recipient for this money transfer.  

On May 29, 2007, I received an USPS Priority Mail from Finecorp USA Inc. P.O. Box 7983 Van Nuys, CA 91409-7983.  Inside this envelope enclosed a check from a person name:  Adam Shihadeh Ward at 7709 E. Appaloosa TRL, Orange, CA 92869.   This check look real and I did not know it is a counterfeit check until June 1, 2007.  I deposited this check on the same day of May 29, 2007.  My bank Washington Mutual told me the fund would be available to withdraw after two-business day, which is May 31, 2007. 

On May 31, 2007, I double-check the fund to make sure it was available to withdraw.  Then I got en email from this Finecorp to give me an instruction of what to do with the fund.  The check amount was $4,220.00 minus my 10% commission and minus Western Union wire-transfer fee $175.00.  The remaining amount of $3,623.00 will be wire-transfer to Philippines to the person name Manuel Jr. Alegria.  I am so happy that I receive my first commission money of $422.00. 

On June 1, 2007, it is my first nightmare when I find out my bank account negative.  I call my bank right away and I find out the check I deposit on May 29, 2007 from Adam Shihadeh Ward was a counterfeit check.  I feel like I am the stupid person in the whole that I will fall for this job opportunity.   I hope I can reclaim my $3623.00 back but I know 99.99% I will not see my
money again. 

Therefore, I want everyone out there, please be careful about these "job opportunities".

Thank you,

I received the following letter from another friend. She was almost the victim of a work-at-home scam:

Hi I have received four $500 American Express gift cheques. I was looking online for some part time work in order to stay home with my son more and received an email requesting me to be a representative. I was asked for my name, mailing address and phone number. A few days later I received an email stating I will be receiving some mail that will commence their business with me. Anyways, I have been out of town for a few weeks and when I got home last night I went through my mail and got a letter from Msla in Montana.
When I opened it up there was another thin brown envelope which only had my name and address on it. So I opened that one to find a "cashing and payment information"  sheet telling me to immediately sign in black ink each one of the enclosed gift cheques. Afterwards to take them to MY bank to be cashed, that gift checks are not deposited checks, they are to be cashed immediately. Once I cashed them to deduct 10% from the funds.
It goes on to inform me that most of their agents supply them from South Africa, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Morocco and also Nigeria. Once I had deducted my 10% to proceed to the nearest western union office to make the payment payable to the agent in Africa. Plus, I was to take out the western union wire charges after I send the balance via Western Union to:
        Name:             Mark Smith
        Destination:        1 Kingsley drive, Isolo
                                    Lagos 23401 Nigeria
        Test question:     Who do you trust
        Answer:                 In GOD
Once payment was made, I was to please kindly email drb.willy@yahoo.co.uk or dr.bwilly@yahoo.co.uk the Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN#) of payment for immediate forwarding to their agent.
Also stating that, from time of receipt from the transfer I would be expecting another payment in at least 5 days. Ending with : Thanks and God bless, Barry Willy of Barry Travels
I found four $500 American Express Gift Checks with this letter. I have had an American Express Gift check before and the ones I have look totally legit. So I signed them, then thought "this is too good to be true". I called my fiance and was told "no way!"  So I got online and did some searching, called American Express and found out that the checks I have in my possession are counterfeit.
I almost fell for it!!!!
I would have been held liable for $2000 and the money would have been transferred out of the country with no way of getting it back and no way of prosecuting before the check were found to be counterfeit.
American Express informed me to send them to:
            American Express
            Salt Lake City, UT

I hope these people are out of some money themselves. And to close their letter with: THANKS AND GOD BLESS!! 

Please use my letter to stop someone else from making a mistake! And help find these people responsible.

Thanks and good luck!! Your collection of stories are very informative.

Counterfeit Checks

I also received this letter from a friend that got arrested:

handcuffsDear Miss young:

My name is xxx and i was stupid enough to fall for this fake job offer that was posted on graigslist some time ago i was desparate and couldnt find a job i tried to cash the check they sent me with my name already printed on it. As soon as i tried to cash it i got arrested and charged and convicted of first degree forgery i got three yrs probation and a forgery conviction on my record. Prior to this my criminal record didnt have anything closely related to forgery nothing i never stole or committed a identity theft in my life and now i have to live with this for the rest of my life i feel i was set up and convicted wrongly i lost thousands of dollars of my own money in lawyer fees probation fees.and much more. I know its not your fault but i thought id share my nigerian nightmare scam and what it did and still doing to my life. Thank You for listening.
