    ADMIN or ANYONE ***Please help*** - Email Job Offer (Aloe Vera Company)

    Hi I recently received and email from an Aloe Vera company that asks you to receive checks and deposit into your account then keep 10% of the check amount and wire the rest via Western Union to an instructed destination.

    Well, I email back my general info...name, address, phone number and then received an email back for more detailed info. I blew it off and never responded figuring they were asking too much...i.e., SCAM.

    Well, I just received an email today saying I was going to receive a check via Fed Ex and needed to do what is mentioned above....well, lo and behold I found a Fed Ex (Signature Released) in my mailbox and inside was a check for $3,980.00!!!!!!!!!!! :eek:

    I never wanted to do this and they sent this check unsolicited...BUT,here's the strange part. The check "endorsement line" has NO SIGNATURE and has on the check "SIGNATURE NOT REQUIRED".

    How can they do this and what if I deposited this in my bank account? Do they automatically get my bank account info and then I'm screwed? :confused:

    Any help is greatly appreciated. (Also, do I just "pitch" this check if it is a SCAM? :( )

    Dear Sir/Ma,

    We are Aloe Vera producing company looking for a representative to represent the company. We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a newmarket (being the US). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion.We have decided to deliver the products upfront, it's > very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent.Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as it possible.

    Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United US without first
    registering the company name.Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of loosing the customers out rightly.Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international Checks take about 14 working days for cash to be made available.We lose about 100,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays.

    Your task as a representative of the company is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process.You are not involved in any sales. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX).The customer receives and checks the products.After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified Checks and Money orders drawn from the United States based on the amount involved. We have decided to open this new job
    position for solving this problem.

    Your tasks are;
    1. Receive payment from Customers
    2. Cash Payment at your Bank or any cashing facilities near you.
    3. Deduct 10 % which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed
    4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be

    contacted to send payment to.This is done either through western union money transfer or moneygram.This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time doing another job, you'll get good income and regular job.But this job is very challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for the worker who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest assistant. We are glad to offer this job position to you. Interested in the position, kindly email back with the following details of yours:



    Urgent Attention is Imperative.
    Regards,
    Williams Smith
    Manager"

    Nowwhat is on Red Bull, do not pay attention to him. Just go to you local Police or FBI and tell them your situation. Unless you wired or deposited something already you should not be responsible of anything illegal. Authorities know about these scams.

    If you deposited check to your account, go to your bank immediately and tell about fraudulent check to bank manager. Ask them to remove it from your account(stop transaction immediately) and put a freeze on your account too(immediately too).
