If you haven't already, do not send them any money. I'm assuming that they have your real life information, in which case you should cease contact with them immediately. Tell them you've already accepted another job, or something, then let them drop you.

Hi, welcome and enjoy the stickies.

This is a common cheque scam, the check id fake or stolen, they are trying to use you to cash it for them - you send them the money before the cheque comes back as fake - dropping YOU in the brown stuff.

The people you are dealing with won't be at that address, the name looks Nigerian - it will be a 'borrowed' ID that can be used down the local western Union office.

You can't bait these guys, they have your real ID, just ignore them . If they ring put down the 'phone. If they email put them in your spam filter.

destroy the cheque, or mark it 'FAKE' and put it on your wall.

Find someone similar in the Surplus forum, and give them hell using another email account. Plenty of info on here on how to do that safely.

I assume from your post that you have already deposited the check and are waiting for it to clear?

If so, contact your bank and inform them you believe you have deposited a fake or stolen cheque, don't wait for the bank to tell you about that.

Spiritual:

Do not do it from the real life e-mail and other information the lads have on you. Read the stickies around here and ask for a mentor. There is loads of basic information on how to bait these lads.

DO NOT do it from your real life information.

@spiritual...

Also, please post the website you responded to if you believe that's where the cheque originated. We have some Copperfields around here that can make scammy websites disappear.

I have been in contact with this wanker for a few days and he has been insisting that i send the money (once cleared) via money gram, what eva this is. I keep telling him that i dont want to be walking round with that kinda money on me and that i want to see his website this is the responce i get back
Hi ABC,

As i stated in previous e-mails, our website is currently inactive and we will send you our web link as soon as it is active and working correctly.

Secondly, we will not send you payments more than £7000.00 and in this case, we will make arrangements for an account where funds can be paid to.

For anymore queries, do not hesitate to contact me.

Sarah Remington.

any other ideas so i can string him along as much as he has done to me?

Even if the money appears on your account, don't touch it spiritualhealer. It's either stolen funds or posted as uncleared.

It depends whether the cheque is forged or a complete fake. Even if you wait a week or a month, and it is then returned unpaid after that time you will be charged back, and if it appears you made use of the funds, you could be prosecuted.

That's why it's best to tell your bank before they tell you. That way you can demonstrate that you are an innocent 'potential' victim and not a criminal associate. Do that and the worst you are likely to suffer is a charge for a bounced cheque.

It's quite a common fraud and worse because you not only lose money but can also end up in trouble with the law.

@spiritualhealer-Reading your post (two above mine)-it appears that you are still in contact with him using your real life details.

STOP ALL CONTACT AND WALK AWAY

Tell him the bank told you it is a fake cheque and then ignore him. If he emails-file it in the trash, if he calls-ignore it. If he keeps calling or emailing you change your email address and/or cellphone number. If he threatens you with legal troubles, the FBI the EFCC or any other agency or govt dept it is all BS-and designed to scare you into paying him your money.

Well done though for speaking to the bank first-that's a lot better than them calling you in for a 'chat'.

As for what you can do now.

Go and sign up for a fastmail account or gmail or hushmail-they all hide your IP, using ALL FAKE DETAILS in no way connected to any part of your real life. Then come back here and sign up for a mentor whilst waiting for Cherrie to 'hook you up' read this little lot. Have a wander round the forums paying close attention to the top of the threads marked Sticky.

Oh and kiss goodbye to a social life... Very Happy

To expand on what gomer said:

I don't know where you're located, but in the United States Federal Banking laws require that the funds for any deposit be made available to you at a maximum of five business days. This doesn't mean that the check has cleared though. Many people make the mistake of looking in their bank account, seeing that the funds are available, and assuming that the check has cleared. It could take weeks, or even months, for that check to run it's course through the banking system and come back as bad. When that happens, you are on the hook, and you are screwed.

Don't play with this guy. If you have to, tell him that you found out that the check is a bad check, and you have turned it over to the authorities.

Time is the key element here. The scammer will hound and harass you to get the money, as he's up against the clock. He has until the check bounces.

As was pointed out earlier, notify the bank immediately and tell them what is going on. Tell them about the scam, and that you now realize that the check is a bad check. You have (unwittingly) commited a crime in passing bad paper. If you tell the bank right now about it odds are about 100% that they will remove the funds from your account and you won't be in any trouble. The longer you wait the worse it will be.

Yes, some of these bad check lads have the resources to make up some very good web sites that look very professional. Just be thankful that you caught this before it came back and bit you in the butt.
