Anybody heard of 'em before? They smell like a scam. I'm working 'em like a scam. I'm supposed to be receiving a payment from a 'client' today, totalling over $13,000. Any guesses as to what I'm going to be asked to do widdit?

Didn't think so Wink Anyway, if anyone's heard of this one before or has played 'em, let me know, before I start 'the game' on the payment.

Not the name, but the scam is simple, you cash the check and keep 10% , send the rest per WU to your friends.
Works until the bank taps on your shoulder, because the checks are fake, then the police wants to know what you did with the money.

I wouldn't be "old nag" if I didn't ask you this, do they have any real life info on you? Are you SAFE?
(Thanks Ima, that tittle comes in handy Laughing )

As Bill2 says, anything asking you to recieve money for/from a client is a scam. Whatever you do, don't bank the checks - mark it as fake and keep it as a souvenir Smile
Tell them, thank you for the money, but you've lost it all at the casino. (unless you're using your real details, in which case, you tell them the bank has said it's fake.)

I've not heard of them, and there are no negative google hits.

As the other guys say, it sounds most like a company representative scam AKA the fake cheque scam or "job offer".

One thing concerns me, and that's the fact that you say you are playing them as a scam. I get the impression you have been approached by these people in real life, using your real life contact address? If so, you need to cease contact and get back in touch with fake details. These people are criminals, and you don't want them having your real email address or business address.
If I've read that wrong, then I apologise, it's just my reading of this...

I'm surprised the "old nag" Bill2 didn't raise that already, he's getting slow in his old age. Laughing

Edit: I see he actually already has nagged you, so I'll shut up! Laughing

Thanks for the replies.
Thanks for your concerns, but I've been scambaiting for a spell.

The original offer to give me the business came to one of my email addresses dedicated to scambaiting. They think they're dealing with a dude who lives in a small mountain town hereabouts (the house address is to a house standing empty and abandoned the past 20 years, but it has a nice decorative water well out front, and the deer and mountain goats keep the lawn somewhat manicured). I actually haven't received any mail from them, but they now think I've received a check for a hefty amount from their "client" (who sent me an email to ask if I had received his check). I have since been sent instructions on how to handle the check (deposit it, keep my 10%, and have the balance transferred to a Bank of America branch in Greensboro, NC, with routing, swift code and account number info, under a Chinese business that allegedly exists). A follow-up email an hour later belatedly instructed me to deduct $3820 USD from the total, and Western Union it to a lad of dubious antecedence in London, UK.

I haven't moved on any of this as yet (received both emails this morning). I checked the given bank branch address, and it's authentic, as I also know Bank of America to be, so it doesn't appear to be any bank-kill opportunity here.

I'm debating between burying them with email questions, or playing a little game of "I don't think 10% is enough...how about 15%?", and eventually sending along a bogus WU receipt.

At any rate, if none of you have heard of Oriental Products, Inc., you soon will be Laughing

Actually, reporting the bank account to Alan will get it killed possibly along with funds seized and sometimes a nasty little police investigation. Laughing

^^ Alan has a direct email. You might not necessarily get a reply, he's a very busy man, but rest assured he'll deal with it.

I'll just go and get you the link to the thread.

That's your link. Use the fastmail address for best results. Once that's done, you can add a piggybank to your signature line.
