    Well, just the fact that the person can't write very well makes it look like a scam. I did look up dpm on google and came up with some real interesting results, including a dpm.com site for an AU company that is in the software busniess. Interestingly, dpm.net wasn't on the first page, it was at the bottom of the second page of results. I would guess that it is a scam, and probably infringes on a trademark or two to boot.

    Re: DPMCORP - Spam hunter Scam ????

    Ok .... after my posting I sent an email back to the original person and the one on the email sent to me. .... basically I asked them if they were on crack to think I would actually cash a check and send them the money with in 2 days of cashing it. and went on to point out other concerns from the website.

    I told/asked them to prove me wrong that this was legit and not a scam... this was yesterday no response back so far. I got a email back from my original request for information with in 2 hours of it being sent.

    The more I think about it the more im convinced that this IS A SCAM !!!

    Those out there who do research on the background of the web host and what not Id be interested in what you find..... Their webiste is much more impressive that Future Advsertings website ..... I did a address search on them NO SUCH # have not called the phone number listed on the site ( and guess where its at New York !!!) why are all/most of the scam companies in New York ?

    I think you were right in the first analysis - cut out all the BS from the email and it drills down to straight check fraud. No real business would pay commissions in that way - they'll send you a good quality fake check which you then cash, and then send the balance on to an untraceable destination. Then, later when the police catch up with you, you'll have zero evidence to show where the money went.

    These are the domain contact details. They're probably fake:

    Fire off a copy of the email to abuse -at- omnis.com and support -at- omnis.com, perhaps including a link back to this thread.

    I use various tools. WHOIS Source is a great place, but requires a subscription for the really cool tools. However, it should tell you the registration date and physical location of the server. Sam Spade for Windows is another very cool tool but more complicated to use.

    WHOIS services are great (and there are lots of them, just Google 'em) because you can see exactly when the domain was registered - so if the site says they've been around since 1999 and the domain was registered last week, then you know they're lying. Also, each domain name should have a real, verifiable name and address that you should be able to look up.

    Not foolproof though - and often the most useful anti-scam tool is that soggy lump of grey matter most of us keep between our ears ;)

    Be very carefull with the DPMCorp Scam. I also was sent a check for $1400 with out return address and the stamp was from the netherlands. I looked the whois informtion and the contact information is a pager. Also I looked at dpm corp in newyork and their so such company in the corportion listings with that address. I'm not sure what they can do to you if cash the check but it's not worth it finding out. I was thinking of contacting the NewYork Distrcit attorney but I'm not even sure if this legitamate company. Anyways,
    be very carefull and don't cash their. Check. Also the check looks like it has been printer on a inkjet printer with the signature that was printed.

    Hopes this helps,

    Lifewave Mike

    That's because it's a felony on all seven continents.
