Well, this is my first post here, but I found this site about six months ago while researching a suspicious email I received from what turned out to be a scammer. Like many, I spent hours enjoying the articles and content here.

Fast forward to last week. I use www.craigslist.org to generate business for my accounting business. I posted my ad under services like I always have, except this time I received the following:

Hello,

How are you doing?It's good to hear from you,i'm sure you understand my posting and know how to use a check printing software,i'm a civil engineer and also a business man,i'm a very busy man so i find it hard handle my whole job alone,especially the payment aspect,paying clients and workers within the states so i have decided to find someone to occupy the job position,Someone who knows how to use a check printing software,he/she will be printing and dispatching payments to clients and workers respectively.

I would like to ask some few question before i continue with my introduction and explanation.

Do you have a check printing software?

Do you have a printer?

Do you have a yahoo messenger and id?

Have you ever worked printing and dispatching checks?


Kindly get back to me as soon as possible,thanks.

Mark

Well, I must say I fell for it. I really thought it was a legitimate so I replied and he sent me his yahoo messenger Id. He was contacting me at 3am my time. I went out and bought the checks and contacted UPS about airway bills and I even sent him a sample check. The sample check was written out to him from him because I did not want to risk anything. Even though I fell for it initially I had my doubts. I felt really happy that my business was picking up and that he would be paying me 500 a month for such a simple task of writing checks.

We exchanged information and a few messages on Friday when my checks that I ordered were delayed. He was very patient with me. Well this morning I'm ready to get to work for him when I asked him to repeat the story he told me about how he was a busy civil engineer and a business man. Well, because he was using yahoo messenger instead of email and the history had been erased, he could not recount exactly what he told me so I began to question him about his work and the process and asked him to give me his web site address. Well, the usual quick response was delayed so I came here and found the same email I received using the versacheck software and I knew I was being duped. I did not send any personal info to him other than my email and phone number he got from my online ad. I have not heard from him since. Thanks to all here at 419 for saving me.

why not just set yourself up with a new safe email addy and reply to his original job offer as if you'd only just discovered it i.e. your new self has been on holiday and just found the offer in your inbox.
Chances are he'll pick you up and off you jolly well go

have fun

He was looking to set you up as a 'mule' working for him supplying cheques to defraud money from innocent people, and that would likely have put you in jail.

You'd have been easy meat for the police/FBI as you probably wouldn't have known to hide where the chequeswere coming from and everyone who lost money would have been reporting you to the police, and you'd have been the only person they could trace.

This is one of the most despicable scams going, though it's hard to choose much between them, purely because you face the real risk of jail, with a charge of counterfeiting against you.

Some people think we should be nice to scammers - what do you think ?

@huckleberry - I'm glad you caught yourself before you actually started working for this scum. This may or may not be the same guy. There are tons of check lads out there, and they steal each other's scripts all the time. Just the names and emails change a bit. The only way you can tell is from looking at the originating IP.

Welcome to Eater. You might want to go over to our sister site, scamwarners.com and report the same thing you told us here. It might help save another potential victim. Smile

EDIT: @huckleberry - Also, please give a Mod by PM the details of the person who was supposed to send you the money orders from Delaware. If you have a phone number for them, it would be great. She could be a victim of this guy as well. Thanks.

As you have seen huckleberry it's impossible to know who's a scammer and who's been duped. It's difficult to know who#s doing what to whom without some investigative spadework which the Mods can handle.

You could have turned up on our lists as someone supplying counterfeit cheques. In these economic circumstances it's easy for anyone to fall for the chance of earning some easy cash, without ever catching on that they are assisting a scammer to dupe people.

The scammers ? - personally I'd gladly push them face first into an automated lemon juicer - which is about what I did to Shorty - and he'll be getting seconds. Twisted Evil

Just tell him you changed your mind and you got a better gig. If he persists, block him from your personal address. He'll go looking for someone else.

Give him a short and no-nonsense message - you are not interested in corresponding with him further. Then ignore any further replies you get from him.

edit: I guess sir scam alot beat me to the punch. Basic idea here is that most scammers will expend most of their effort on promising leads. If you tell him NO and then stop replying to him, he has no chance of getting through to you. The recommendation to block his messages is a good one as it removes the temptation to continue some kind of correspondence with him.

Go ahead and PM a mod for help. The money orders are fake, no doubt. Filing a police report probably wouldn't hurt, even though you haven't committed a crime, it does show you are being proactive.

// Removed full quote from above, it's still up there OD

I flagged this same posting days ago when I realized it was a scam. I contacted him from a fake email address and he responded with the same crap he sent me.

I mentioned that I thought that this was one of the worst type of scams.

Tell him the bank confiscated the money orders/cheques as the police want to see them.

Then put the phone down.

He won't keep ringing for long.

No need to be rude - no need for a conversation.

Sound confident and don't listen to anything he says. Put the phone down after you've said that, even if he's still talking.

It'll make you feel good and he'll give up after a couple of tries.
