Re: Does anyone know anything about this company?

Company is real(www.nbrown.co.uk), but this does not guarantee that person who contacted you is not a scammer. I have seen tons of scams on this website and this smells scam to me.

If you chose to proceed ask him for his email address at company website(xxxx@www.nbrown.co.uk). If he is scammer he would not have it. Communicate only through that email.

Second, do not give them your SSN or date of birth.

Third, do not send any money back under any circumstances.

Re: Does anyone know anything about this company?

I hate to say it, but I think this is a scam.

The contact phone appears to have been used before for other such scams:

http://www.google.com/search?q=44208...e7&rlz=1I7BJYS

The correct number for companies based in Manchester would start with 44 161 not 44 208. The correct contact number is: 44 (0)161 236 8256

44 208 is typically used for numbers in the suburbs of London, which suggests the person's contact number is a cell phone.

Re: Does anyone know anything about this company?

My husband found this "company" on Craigslist. At the time, he was between jobs and looking for work. They had a "work-from-home" deal for mailing catalogs. He fell for it, hook, line and sinker. The guy says he'll mail a check to cover the cost of postage, but then they send a check for way more than that "by accident". They ask you to deposit the check and send back a large sum of the money (not 100%) by wire transfer via Western Union. Then a few days later, you find out that the check is a fake and all the money you deposited is taken out of your account.

Re: Does anyone know anything about this company?

Just from the grammatical errors alone would make me think this is a scam. The fact that you pay for postage up front for them too would make me run.

Unless you are in the UK, probably not much. Try reporting it here; http://www.ic3.gov/

I doubt you will get your money back but maybe they can be stopped.

Any time you get an email about a "job" that you didn't even apply for, it's a scam.

Don't even open those emails. Setup your spam filter to help keep them out.

Why do people even question them? Toss them!

Re: Does anyone know anything about this company?

They sent me a check of 3650 and told me to keep my part of it and then send them back...
i went to the bank and a 10 days hold was applied, after 10 days the money was available so i thought the check was good (since i thought 10 days was enough for them to check if the check was good or not), i sent them back 3200, keeping 450 but then after 3 weeks the 3650 disappeared from my account. i called the bank and they told me that the check wasnt good. i asked them about the 10 days that i waited for and the told me that not always 10 days is enough...
the thing is i knew about a lot of online scams but i didnt know that the money can be available and then suddenly disappear after a while, i think the banks have to say those things to the customers...
now i feel very bad about it, especially because it seems that is no way to have my money back and it will take me 5 months working to save this money again, since i work in a minimum wage job at a gas station, i just wanted to increase a little bit my income and this is what happens...
i sent a complaint to the ic3 but i still dont see a way to get my money back, thats too bad that those people choose especially the people that are in need for money...
