    NEW SCAM uses UL name

    THIS IS THE EMAIL:

    ----- Message from admin42@ul-europesr.com on Wed, 22 Feb 2006 11:30:57 -0700 -----
    To: XXXXX@aol.com
    Subject: New job offer for XXXXX

    Hello XXXXX. My name is Deborah Shull and I work for a
    company called Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. I found
    your resume on careerbuilder.com because we are
    searching for reliable professionals across the United
    States who are interested in a potentially lucrative
    partnership with an international firm.

    Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. is a leading investition company in
    Latvia
    and we are currently expanding our operations in the
    United States. But because of various banking and
    legal restrictions, we are unable to open commercial
    bank accounts in every state. As such, Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
    is recruiting partners to conduct simple banking
    transactions on our behalf.

    The process is simple. If you were interested in
    becoming a US partner of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., you would sign
    an agreement that would make you an official financial
    representative of our company, able to accept invoice
    payments on our behalf. Instead of asking our
    American clients to conduct complicated international
    payment transactions (which are especially complex for
    Latvian companies), we have them work with our
    partners to submit payments. You would then forward
    the payments to us, a simple transaction for an individual.

    Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. pays its partners a 10% commission on
    every transaction. In addition, we will take care of
    any incremental tax liability you incur. Depending on
    which state you are in, and of course on how good
    business is, your monthly commissions could be as high
    as $7,000 per month.

    If you are interested in working with us, or if you
    want more information, you can contact me directly at
    my personal email address: support@ul-europe.net. I'll need your full
    name and mailing address so I can send you the
    contract and other paperwork necessary to get started.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    We responded to a similiar ad, and they actually sent us checks. UL did not send it, the envelope says E Capital. The checks are from the U.S. from a real company and real individuals. We will keep you posted on the outcome.

    Re: NEW SCAM uses UL name

    This is a scam.

    They also threaten to contact the government.

    I have spoken to investing officals.

    They are not operating for the company they mention in the email.

    The best thing to do according to the contact is to mail back the checks and state that you are not affilated with the group and that it is a scam.

    Re: NEW SCAM uses UL name

    Yes Everyone, this is A BIG scam, they recruit where ever they can, and happens to pick me in my neighborhood, i got the same email, and follow up email, and even got two checks in the mail from two companies i didnt even know of, each for $7,892, both checks were real, and had pen signatures on it, i was suprised, but my only mistake was that i didnt do research online first to see if this was real or not...so i took it to the bank, opened an account, and one of the checks cleared immediately because the check is the same as the bank, and the other check will be pending, so now that i did do find, when i came home and looked online for info about this, i came on this website and read the same thing i got on here in my email, so i just called the bank and stopped it from clearing and investigation picked it up and stopped it, so i wasnt in any trouble, unless i did go back and withdraw the money. I just wonder how they do it. Any ways i learn my lesson to search online first for bogus companies. Thank you guys for having this posted, other wise i'd probably be sitting in a box with bars in front. :eek:

    Re: NEW SCAM uses UL name

    I received 4 checks for $7,892. But I did my homework by contacting the banks listed on the checks and they said that the companies have active accounts. I tried to contact the companies, but I was unsuccessful. So I contated UL and they said they were not affiliated with them. These crooks even emailed me again saying I could keep 15%. I will be contacting the authorities :-(

    Re: NEW SCAM uses UL name

    The first contact from this Pierre Mottet occurred around the 2nd of March. Today (7 APR 2006) the user of the "yahoo" email address sent the following:

    Ilya Muromets
    XXX Huntington Street
    Brandon FL 10054
    MTCN xxxxxxxxxx
    1900 $
    xxx-xxx-8699

    ___________________________________________

    The subject line read "check"
    and the above was the body; however, the date was Sep 2003 23:29:58 +0400
    ????
    This incident has been reported and I also received "threatening" emails about being reported to the FBI for not "following instructions".

    I received two checks and one of the two checks was reported "stolen".

    Whom ever the "yahoo user is" --- I hope they are "caught red-handed" like the recent arrest of that "Homeland Security Press" person.

    Re: NEW SCAM uses UL name

    If you decide to mail back the checks -- be mineful of your "personal information" - if by chance the "drawer" is affiliated with the "scam" they will have the benefit of posession of the "bad check".

    If a complaint is submitted to: ic3.gov -- they suggest that ALL contact information, documents and any other information is kept for reference.
