    Vormetric Soft, Inc.

    Has anyone had a job offer from vormetricsoft? They say they are selling software in the states (based in France) and need people to cash checks for them. The payments are sent to your address, you keep 10% then send them the rest within 48 hours.

    Sound familiar at all?

    SCAM!, you can even get fraud charges for it, you cash the check, send them 90%, the check doesn't clear, you have to pay the bank back... DO NOT DO IT! there are many of these types of scams out there!

    That is exactly the first thing I thought of. They sent me an email saying there were 2 checks on the way, but I have not seen them. How could I get charged with fraud, though? Are they laundering money, never supplying the materials they are marketing, or what? What if I cashed the checks/money orders but never sent them the money until I was sure it cleared? Have you heard of them? Worked with them?
    It never ceases to amaze me how I just can't accept that if it seems too good to be true...it is! Ugh! One day I'll learn.

    If you're getting cashiers checks how can you be responsible? Are you sure this is a scam?

    There is no need for a French company selling in the US to have someone in the US cashing cheques for them. Bank relationships and financial interconnections between the two states are so good that in France they would cash you a US checue without problems. This is why it is a scam, in first instance.
    Second of all, what is the company that would work in such a way giving away 10% in commissions to a stranger for cashing the sale of a software?? There is the florist in Bejing taking orders from the guy in Cape Town with no problems, today...how a legit company from France would have problems to get the money for the software they sell to the guy in the US, directly?
    Third of all, it is a very well known type of scam: the cheques they send you to cash are coming from illegal activities; you cash it, send them 90% and they get clean money, while you have keep the dirty one and the evidence of it: it is called money laundering...
    Don't fall for it.

    I have just tried it. They sent me a Money for $3500. I have not been told were to wire the money. I will not wire the money until the money order clears.

    BRYBRY, you put yourself in a dangerous game. It's called money laundering and you are the main actor. I warmly suggest you to report this to the police until you are still in time. Up to you of course...i just felt to tell you this.

    RAGG, it is still illegal. Money laundering is money laundering, no matter how you cash the cheque.

    :mad: Do not I repeat do not fall for this crap. They almost got me. This is a scam. The first cashiers check I received was $4000. They had explicit instructions on how to wire the money by breaking it up into smaller amounts. Well I didn't do that and they couldn't pick up the money. I spoke with Western Union and luckily they sent all the money back to me so I could redeposit into my bank account. I'm glad they did the check was just returned. If I had sent the money on I would have been out $4000 and my account frozen. DON'T DO THIS. IT'S A SCAM

    BRYBRY, it is a scam and you all have been told already, but keep trying these things just because it sounds like easy money. Sometimes it would be better to follow other people advices, rather then pour crock tears. It is a scam and can lead to serious legal consequences, in fact you are involved into money laundering.
