Thanks
Daniel

Daniel,

Yes I can do that.
But now it may be time to act a little dumb

As you want to pass funds through it, will you want me to open a deposit account that pays interest, or does it need to be a checking account?

Regards

James

Daniel,

A little delay. I went to the bank yesterday and asked to open a dollar business checking account. Apparently, there is something called the Money Laundering Control Act (MLCA), and the branch said that, as I was a non-US citizen I had to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the Act. If I didn't, I could be questioned by something called the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (which is aparrently part of the US Treasury Department). To meet the requirements, the nice teller said I needed to have some evidence of the business I was part of that needed an account.

So I thought I'd ask you if you could get your Company Secretary to draft me a quick letter on Interface Fabrics Ltd headed paper saying that you were offering me a position in the USA with your company as one of your representatives and that was why I needed the account. I can then show this to the bank and they will then be able to go ahead and open the account.

Regards

James

I thought Id try this to see what happened when I asked for some evidence of the job. Id done some Googling on money laundering. I also hoped the mention of a business account might enrage my boy. I thought I might not hear back after this

Daniel,

I've not had a response to my email below and I'm a little concerned - you've always responded quickly and been most helpful up to now.

Are you not progressing my job application with Interface?

And I was so looking forward to my new career

Regards

Jim

Looks like I was right no more messages. Still, it was my first and at least it wasted some of his worthless time.

Anyone who wants him or knows him, his address was [email protected]

Nice work Jim.

Check lads are a lot of fun. I have two currently. One has been dragged along for a couple months trying to get his WU payment (I swear I made it) and the other is about to learn the same pain.

Just make sure you have a safe place to have the checks sent to that has no trace back to your RL.

Thanks for the kind words Oxy, but I wasn't planning to actually have any checks sent to me, just jerk them around a bit.

I didn't think we actually took cash off these scum, as it's bound to be from some poor innocent who's been duped.

Or did I misunderstand, being a noob?

And I certainly won't let these vermin anywhere near my RL, so thanks for the warning.

JB Razz

@Jim: The check scammers' favorite weapon is the counterfeit check. The most direct method is, they send you checks, you deposit them, see the money enter your account, and wire them their share. Then the "issuing bank" tells your bank the check is a forgery or fake. Your bank removes the amount of the check from your account and whatever portion you sent to the scammer is gone.

Check scammers very rarely use checks that will actually clear (meaning the scammer has swiped someone's banking information and are forging checks against their account). If they have an individual's banking information, they can usually clean the account out without a third party's help. Most checks have valid information about the issuing bank, but a fictional account holder. They rely on the difference between the time the funds are made available by the bank (1-5 days) and the time the check fails to clear (7-10 days), during which time the scammer hopes the victim will wire the money.

That is not always the case however. Some scammers use real account information, so the check may actually clear assuming the account hasn't already been cleaned out, and it's not until the ID theft victim contacts their bank that your bank is alerted to the hot check. Other times, the scammers may manipulate a mule (another victim) into writing you a check. This is usually only done when the scammer needs you to believe that they are being upfront about a smaller transaction so you will agree to proceed with a larger one where they actually rip you off.

Whatever you do, if a scammer sends you a check, DO NOT DEPOSIT IT. Notify the issuing bank and send them a scan of the check if they ask for it, and if the account information is valid they will alert the account holder about the potential fraud. Then, you have a nice trophy. Most baiters here make collages out of them.

Thanks for the info, Sum.

If I get that far, I'll have to scour the forums looking for help on how to set up an untraceable accommodation address for them to post to.
