    AZ Partner PLC check cashing scam Daniel C. Powell

    THIS A**HOLE IS EMAILING PEOPLE ON CAREERBUILDER, A FREQUENT SOURCE OF SCAMS.
    ANY VARIATION OF CHECK CASHING IS A SCAM, DO NOT FALL FOR IT. AZ Partner PLC DOES NOT EXIST. ANY "BUSINESS" USING AN AOL or earthlink or a free email ADDRESS IS suspect.

    subject Message from Careerbuilder: Full time / Part time job opportunity


    Hi XXX,
    My name is Daniel C. Powell and I found your resume on CareerBuilder and therefore, we presume you are actively looking for new openings. Below is the job description along with a brief introduction of our company.
    AZ Partner PLC is a UK based company; our vision is to make the world a better place. With dedicated employees serving clients around the globe, AZ Partner PLC is one of the largest and most respected providers of professional technical and management support services in the world – and all for one purpose:

    By embracing these values as guiding principles, AZ Partner PLC has vaulted to the forefront of our industry. And people have noticed.
    AZ Partner PLC delivers advanced client solutions and services to a broad range of markets. We fuse global reach with local knowledge, and innovation with technical excellence.
    But nothing better illustrates the qualities that define us than the projects we deliver. AZ Partner PLC is now working on seven of the 15 largest civil infrastructure programs in the world.
    Our 47,000 talented professionals – including architects, engineers, designers, planners, scientists and management professionals – now serve clients in more than 100 countries around the world.
    More experts. Thinking more innovatively. Designing more intelligently. Managing more productively. Partnering more powerfully.
    We are AZ PARTNER PLC
    AZ needs a responsible, self motivated and reliable individual to work for the company as our Representative in USA for our newly opened market.
    JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:
    Receive payment from our customers. All checks will be written in your name.
    Cashing the checks at your existing bank account
    You will deduct 10% of every payment received.
    Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be contacted to send payment to. (Payment is to be forwarded by Western Union Money Transfer).
    You will receive 10% for every check processed in the first month. Within one month after receiving the first check you will get an extra $1,000 if you will manage to cash checks in a timely manner, also this bonus includes Internet bill, phone bill, gas/bus tickets. We will support all bills you have to pay for your Internet and cell phone. PLEASE NOTE: This bonus will apply after one month starting the day you will receive the first check.
    After two months of working with us, a secondary bonus will apply. You will get 15% from all our sales. If everything works as we will expect and it will, you will be able to do up to $1200 - $1300 per week + the bonus of $1,000 every month.
    Bonuses regarding, cashing checks are as follow:
    Cash the check same day and you will receive a bonus of $150 for each check cashed.
    Cash the check within 24 hours and you will receive a bonus of $100.
    Cash the check within 48 hours and you will receive a bonus of $50
    The salary will be paid to the Representative by cashier check.
    New offices will be opened in the United States, as we recently launched our products to the US Market and most of our customers and we had a big impact working with US Customers. The estimated duration for opening the new offices is between 2 to 4 months. This is why we are trying to find someone capable to help us administrate all the US Area.
    The today's situation on the financial market requires us to open and fill several of these job positions within our company; the job opening is that of a Representative within the US. This opening will help our company to reduce the time it takes to receive ******* from orders that we receive each month. And we offer you one of the highest incomes on the market today and the minimal expenditures of time.
    Presently with the number of orders we have we cannot put them on hold for fear of losing our customers, secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international checks take about 28 working days to cash anywhere in Europe. We lose a lot of time and money each month because we have money transfer delays. Our clients could pay us where we want by sending checks to an US address. What we need you to do is to provide us an address where you can receive our customer checks. We need someone who can receive the money through this method of payment. Regarding the check process all you have to do is to receive the checks our customers will send to your address, take them to your bank, cash them and send the remainder amount to us after deducting all fees incurred and your commission. All fees for transferring the funds will be supported from our share. Bonuses will apply for cashing checks within 24 hours on receiving a check. You will always take your commission upfront.
    We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and processed we deliver the product to our customer (usually through USPS). The customer receives and checks the product and proceeds to send the payment. We accept all forms of payment but most of our customers pay using Bank Checks and so to solve this problem and not lose any of our customers we have decided to open this new job position. This job is legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today. Local money transfers take but a few hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately
    PAYMENT AND SALARY:
    For example you receive a check as payment for 3000.00 USD, you deduct your commission (10%): 300.00 USD and then send to us the balance: 2700.00 USD.
    In the first month, you will receive around 15-20 orders under 3,000.00 USD to process and after checking your performance records during that first month the orders you will receive, may increase from 3,000.00 upwards to 6,000.00 USD.
    For example 20 transactions each around 3000.00 USD gives you a total income of 6,000.00 USD per month and after establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more.
    You will also deduct fees that are related to this job (gasoline, western union fees, bank commissions, etc) from our balance, not from your commissions. At first the checks you will receive will vary from: $500.00 to $3,000.00.
    We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part. Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your existing bank account, we don't accept newly created bank accounts because it slows the cashing process. Deduct your percentage and forward the balance to the company attorney manager via a western union money transfer, the name will be given to you later after cashing a payment.
    This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time for taking up another job; you'll get good income and a regular job. This job is very challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for the employee who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest assistant.
    We have health insurance and the 401K retirement savings plan as well as all the other standard benefits that a major company usually provides. Unfortunately we can only start talking about this after the first month has passed since you're working for us. We consider the first month as a trial period. In any case you do not have to pay for anything in advance; there are no hidden costs for performing this job. Any fee you might encounter will be deducted from our share of the funds before you send it to us.
    You will receive next instructions step by step.
    WORKING HOURS
    This depends of how many checks you will receive but it won't take more than 2 hours to deposit the check and send an e-mail when the check arrives to you. Also when checks arrive we will send you further instructions and all details to complete the process with Western Union.
    Unfortunately we cannot setup any interviews now we do not have any representatives in US. We will be able to come to meet within the next few months when the new offices will be opened in your area!
    Please let me know if you are still interested and I will email you the contract.
    If you have any questions please email.

    Re: AZ Partner PLC check cashing scam Daniel C. Po

    Thanks for posting up the emails and email address from that "cash the fake check" scammer.

    The more a scammer's information is googlable, the better the chance a suspicious potential victim will find your post and not become a victim.

    There is another one of these scams floating around under the name of Hologic Innovations Solution PLC
    It's the exact same email from Career Builder. I even looked up their website and it looks almost legit.

    Re: AZ Partner PLC check cashing scam Daniel C. Po

    Hello,

    ref:"Hologic Innovations Solution PLC"

    I gor that exact letter today. I have goten the same type of offer before.

    Would you be kind enough to explain just what kind of scam it is?
    Do there checks bounce? Are we actually laundering money?
    I have not replied as the saying goes "If it sounds to good......."

    On a side note I did reply to some bogus deal ad and got the best looking fake forgey of a postal money order you have ever seen. I called the Post office to verify and it ws fake. I consider my self fairly intelligent, but this money order was an excellent fake. It the people put that much effort in a legit business they probally would do well.

    Back to my question, What do the want?

    Thanking you in advance for your reply.

    Stuart

    Yes, the checks and money orders bounce. There is no money to launder as the scammer is not sending any money to anyone. The only money here is the victim's cash being sent to the scammer via Western Union or moneygram.

    The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "secretary/assistant/accountant" and will demand you cash a large fake check sent on a stolen UPS/FedEx billing account number and send most of the "money" via Western Union or moneygram back to the scammer posing as the "supply company" while you "keep" a small portion. When your bank realizes the check is fake and it bounces, you get the real life job of paying back the bank for the bounced check fees and all the bank's money you sent to an overseas criminal.

    Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    When you refuse to send him your cash he will send increasingly nasty and rude emails trying to convince you to go through with his scam. The scammer could also create another fake name and email address like "FBI@ gmail.com", "police_person @hotmail.com" or "investigator @yahoo.com" and send emails telling you the job is legit and you must cash the fake check and send your money to the scammer or you will face legal action. Just ignore, delete and block those email addresses. Although, reading a scammer's attempt at impersonating a law enforcement offical can be extremely funny.

    Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    6 "Rules to follow" to avoid most fake jobs:
    1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one.
    2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order.
    3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity.
    4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone.
    5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram.
    6) Job asks you to sign up for a credit reporting or identity verification site.

    Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed 'red flags' and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason.

    If you google "fake check cashing job", "fraud Western Union scam", "money mule moneygram scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.
