    yes, it is common scam.

    no company ever has company money trusted to new employee.

    any scammer can buy blank checks at office supply. scammer can get real account numbers from other scammers. all they need is a sucker to go cash the checks and send the money to them by untracable western union.

    don't be a sucker. it will hurt, alot.

    I agree with mumbles, 100% scam fake job.

    It is the 'cash the fake check' and 'accept the fake bank deposit' then Western Union your cash to the scammer who then disappears forever.

    There are not legit jobs printing, mailing or cashing checks.
    There are not legit jobs accepting bank deposits and Western Union-ing cash to someone somewhere.

    That website is fake and will hopefully be shut down soon by the hosting company.

    Just delete and ignore that scammer. That scammer has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their cash via Western Union. Don't bother telling him off, it isn't worth your effort.

    Now that your email address is out there in scammer-land, you will receive more emails for fake jobs, fake charities, fake banks, fake orphans, fake courier companies and fake lotteries. Just be cautious, suspicious and curious. Always ask/post here and on every scam-warner-fraud-watching site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    Thank you for information. This is scam.

    We are glad to inform you that HR department successfully verified your information. Though we had several strong applicants your track record proved to be more substantial and built up to a higher score. Please accept our congratulations. You are approved for Financial Manager position and we hope you will significantly contribute to our companyís growth making it a stronger player in the market.

    Please find attached your signed Employment Agreement. We will send you its hard copy and your Employee ID card by regular mail. Please read below for more information on your future duties and activities.

    Now Your information:
    It is comfortable address for delivered mail and paperworks?

    If not please provide us comfortable address for delivered.

    Also is this name right for look on bank check - [...]

    We already have a number of customers and ready to start rendering our services. It is very important that we serve all our clients in the best way possible and you will have to demonstrate your competence and accurate performance when synchronizing incompatible financial systems. This is the key factor to keep up our companyís reputation and position in the market.

    All our US customers are currently entitled to make payments by:
    - Cash. Some clients may prefer visiting the financial manager to hand over the funds.
    - Electronic Bank Transfer (ACH, WIRE)
    - Bankerís Checks

    You must be ready to accept payments by any of these methods. Please read below on each of them.

    For most US customers bankerís check is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to move money. However, itís not compatible with the financial system established in Russia and force many Russian businesses to resort to our services. As set forth by the Employment Agreement you are entitled to accept payment from our US customers in checks. This means that they will issue checks to your name and send them to your address by verified mail.
    The bankerís check can be cashed to your account by:
    1. presenting it to your bank
    2. by setting up a new checking account with the checkís issuing bank. E.g. If the check is issued by Bank of America you will have to open a checking account with them. In general this is the most efficient way to cash a check
    After the check is cashed you will withdraw your 5 fee and wire the rest of the funds to our corporate bank account in Russia or send it by Western Union

    As set in the Agreement you are entitled to receive funds from US customers to the bank account you previously specified.

    The task is regarded as completed only if the funds are received by our Financial Department in Russia.

    Some of our US customers will be making payments to you this week. You receive more information on these transactions by the next email. Meanwhile let us congratulate you again on joining our company. Please feel free to contact us immediately if you have any questions.

    Best regards,
    Personnel manager

    Thanks for posting up another email from that scammer.
    After the check is cashed you will withdraw your 5 fee and wire the rest of the funds to our corporate bank account in Russia or send it by Western Union
    That sentence says it all, you are suppose to Western Union or bank transfer your cash to the scammers in Russia. Remember that Western Union does not have any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever. Bank transfers cannot be reversed, again, money sent is money gone.

    I got one of these as well, does anybody really know how there scamming people? because if I understand it correctly what you are sending them is there own money back which does seem odd and alot like a money laundering scam.

    Yes, I know how that type of scam works.
    if I understand it correctly what you are sending them is there own money back
    Unfortunately you are not understanding this type of scam correctly. You or any other victim is not sending the scammer his money back. The check the victim is sent is fake, pretend, not real, but the victim and the bank do not know this. The victim cashes the check, the bank gives the victim the money. The victim goes to the Western Union or moneygram shop and send the cash to the scammer. About a week later the bank realizes that the check was fake, drawn on a closed or non-existent account and since the bank is not going to take the loss, they take that amount out of the victim's own bank account.

    In the end, the victim has a bank account that has been debited the amount of the check plus fees. The end result is the same as if the victim had withdrawn the cash from their own account and sent it via Western Union or moneygram to the scammer.

    There are not legit jobs printing, mailing or cashing checks. There are not legit jobs using Western Union or moneygram in any way. No. Exceptions. Ever.
