They are so many diffrent type of internet scams has been flooded and spam through-out internet. Many of us has suffer job loss and desperatly looking for another sort of quick income. Those Nigerian are taking advantage of us more during this recession and they are running internet scams more in the past year than I have ever seen. Some offer part time job, roomate payment in advance, down payment on realestate, packages arrivals, inheritance, personal loans, transfering money to investment
, any of these sort is all part of the Nigerian scams to get them to send you their conterfeit checks to cash along offering you to make 10-20% of the top call commissions for you work. They are trying to trick you by sending you a fake cashier checks, which looks so real lots of banks cant even tell the different. I have seen US Postal Money Order, Bank Of America, Chase Bank and many others types of checks. The trick is to get you to cash those checks with your local bank, 99% of the time your bank will not question you since you do banking business with them. Then you take your 10-20% commissions of the top your part to keep and than they want you to wire them the rest of the money by Western Union. Keep in mind, if you cash what ever amount of the checks they have sent you, you will be out of that amount with your bank. those Nigrians are excellent con artist, they know not to send you extremly large amount of check to cash due to the red flag it will create. Some of the banks are getting smarter by doing a 10 days hold on the checks before they depurse the funds although if you have enough funds availible in you checking, saving, money market
, etc; 100% of the time your bank will go ahead and cash those checks without putting a hold on it. Nigeria are now known to be one of the largest corrupted country and number one mass producer of counterfeits checks. So dont get caught in the middle like my neighbor did which he lost 20,000.00 in his saving and still owe 10,000.00 to his bank by cashing those conterfeit checks. If you get caught in the middle there is nothing you can do, beside keeping all documents whom and where and how did you get those checks, contact your local FBI because is Local in the US and they will instruct you what to do, than contact your local bank manager explaining what took place what arrangement you can set up to repay back the money; might as well say good by to that money and the chance is that hopping you dont get in trouble for cashing conterfeit checks...keep in mind, CIA, FBI cant do a darn thing about it and they already know and awared of the suitation for years and still trying to figured out how to stop those Nigerians. In fact Nigerian Government will not cooperate with any outside government. You might as well say they living in the safe haven and we cant touch them. And here are some example of Nigerian scams.

Um - thanx for that, but trust me, we know what these guys (who are not all Nigerians, BTW) do and how, and the consequences.

I will heed the advice of a polite horse for it is written that more flies are caught with honey than vinegar... although assault carbines and monstrous wolves are still fun.

You are preaching to the converted here, friend. But the only way these criminals will be stopped is by educating their potential victims against them, so you go right on doing what you are doing.

By the way, your #3 is not a fake check scam. That one is advance fee fraud, wherein the scammer asks for money for documents, taxes, bribes etc.

Do not fall into the trap of thinking they are all Nigerian. Scamming is worldwide and scammers come from all nations.
