    Susan Brown Investments

    Has anyone been contacted by this email? Is this a scam or against the law?


    SUSAN BROWN INVESTMENTS
    (Open only to US Citizens and residents)
    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Would you like to work online from home temporarily and get paid
    weekly? We are glad to offer you a job position at our company, SUSAN BROWN INVESTMENTS Fabrics & textiles u.k. We need someone to work for the company as a Representative/Book keeper in the USA to assist us
    in processing the payments from our clients and we will pay you a weekly
    salary.

    You don�t need to have an Office and this certainly won�t disturb your
    present work that you are doing at the moment. The average monthly income is about $4000.
    * No government's tax on your income.
    * No form of investments from you.
    * This job takes only 1-3 hours per day.
    * This job takes only 3-7 hours per week.

    ABOUT THE COMPANY AND THE JOB;
    Our company produces various clothing materials, batiks, assorted
    fabrics and traditional costume. We have customers in ASIA AND EUROPE we distribute our products to.

    We just got customers from the usa, who have interest in our
    products and we supply them weekly. Our Buyers (Customers) make payments for our supplies every week in form of Money Orders which are not readily cashable outside the United States or with Certified Cheques.
    It's not an easy thing to start a business in a new market (being the
    US).

    We are unable to open Bank Accounts in the United state without first
    registering the company name. There are lots of competitors in the textiles business world and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion.

    We have decided to deliver the products upfront, just to push up sales 25 percent. Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as possible.

    Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold for fear of loosing the customers out right. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international Cheques take about 14 working days for cash to be made available. We lose net income each month because we have money transfer delays.

    You will not be involved in any sales. We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted by the company, we deliver the product to the customer (usually through FEDEX). The customer
    receives and checks the products, after which payments is made for the
    products. About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through
    Certified Cheques and Money orders based on the amount involved.

    Your Full name, Residential Address and Phone Number is needed so we
    can forward it to our clients and they will start making payments to you as the company's Representative in the states.

    THE COMPANY WILL FORWARD YOUR INFORMATIONS TO OUR CLIENTS IN THE STATES AND THEY ISSUE PAYMENTS IN FORM OF MONEY ORDERS OR CERTIFIED CHEQUES. THEN SEND IT TO YOU VIA MAIL OR COURIER SERVICE.

    YOUR TASK;
    1. Received payment from Customers (payments will be issued in your
    full name)
    2. Deposit the payment in your bank account as this is the only place my company can be insured payments.
    3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed.
    4. Forward the balance of 90% (all western union or money grame charges
    must be deducted from the company's 90%) to any of the offices you will be contacted to send payment to. (Payment is to forwarded either by Money Gram or Western Union Money Transfer) www.westernunion.com, or www.moneygrame.com. Local Money transfers takes barely hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately.

    SALARY;
    You processed 3900 USD.
    You deduct your 10%, which is : 390 USD. First month you will have 9-12 transactions on 3900 USD. So you may calculate your income.
    10 transactions on 3900 USD gives you 3900 USD. Plus your basis
    monthly salary 500 USD. Total: 4400 USD per month. 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. Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your bank. Deduct your weekly
    salary and forward the balance to the company via western union money
    transfer or money gram money transfer.

    We are looking only for the worker who is trust worthy and can provide
    us with his full name and contact address because all payments will be
    issuedout in your name and will be delivered by courier service. Note that
    courier service does not deliver to p.o.box so your residential address is
    highly needed.

    Most business try to conduct business in a professional manner. Yes, the spelling should be your first clue.

    And, "no governments tax on your income"?? Sounds nice, but......

    Any legit business shouldn't have a problem opening up a bank account in another country.. This smells like a rat miles away, just delete the email or better yet forward it to some legal department so they can trace the person and bannish them from the cyber world for good!! :)

    Don't be too harsh though, we all screw up our spelling sometimes.

    I said "Most business try to conduct business" Oops, my bust!


    (I spelled sometimes wrong the firsttime, hence the edit part)

    I knew it, as an office worker, I knew it. I recieved this in a job post board.
    But what is the purpose? Is it identity theft? I need to know, because, I filled out the form, I havent yet sent my id. But they ask everyday.

    The job post is grammatically correct, but the personal emails are for ****...


    Hi Sandra,
    am happy to hear that you have filled out the form but about the issue of the attachment, please try as much as possible to get it attached and email it to the HR dept so that you can fully be registered anyway with the application form you have filled out you have been guarranty the job offer but you just have to complete it by attaching your i.d so the process can be completed you still have some days to do this and i will be on a look out for it and also see to it that you are enlisted among people who will receive the first set of payment.

    make sure you get it done in good time.

    Thank you and God Bless
    blessing George

    I want to send it to the law. Anyone know what to do. I am earnestly seeking work at home. And all I find are scams.

    [B]Here is what they said to me:

    Hi sandra,
    go ahead, scan and attach the i.d via email this has been the companies rules and we have to oblige with it if you are really sure you will be honest with you duties do that and get back to me you stillnhave some weeks so hurry up and attach it to me.

    I will be looking forward to hear from you.
    Marcus Wright


    Heres another:

    Hi Sandra,
    i understand your concern, but has a high personnel in susan brown investment i am given you my words that there has never been such occurance in any transaction we have done before in the histroy of the company, this online job is an offer that any representative who wants to work for us do it out of will and we do not force anybody to work forthe company. If you think you are not convinced enough i will beg you to pull out but you are going to miss the benefits which i am not in posititon to explain to you until you work for the company and see for you self.

    So if you are interested you can go ahead and contact the hrm dept and do what ever he says but if not send me an acknowledgement letter so i can inform the hrm dept and also send a copy to hrm dept.

    Thank you God Bless
    Blessing George

    Re: Susan Brown Investments

    It's not just the spelling, it is the grammatical errors as well.

    I feel so stupid for believing them. I won't again. Ever since I filled out the form I have been searching the net to find a valid company under this name. I even went to UK search.

    Then I decided to look under scams, the rest id history.
