ScamRadar - Report Frauds and ScamsVersa Check Gold 2010

I almost fell for this scam on May 25, 2010. I responded to a Craigslist ad for a Virtual Assistant. Thank God for this scam alert. The email came from Mark White. I knew this was a scam with all the grammatical errors and misspelled words. After wasting much of my time this morning, here’s the final email below before I told this scammer I planned to report him/her to the FTC.

    Tina: I saw your post & I just about fell for the same scam ( what exactly is the scam if you could explain it to me) It did seem weird to me & you were right about the spelling. she didn’t try to IM me any links to purchase the software or checks “so called necessary” told me to go to staples or walmart, but maybe knowing that they dont have the products & then you would have to use their link. The fact that she didn’t really want to talk in person even over the phone seemed a bit odd. The job posted on craigslist was for a Payroll Assistant & again if you can explain the scam I am curious as to what this on is?? The email I received is as follows ( i did not post the actual last name of the person who sent it just incase I dont want harassed, you knever know):

    I am confused with this job offered to me. because, this is the same kind of email I got from a person. I had a doubt that this was a scam, so i told him to get me a printer and HE GOT ME ONE!! (because I had no money)
    I told him that I fear of him being a scam. But he was like “people who buy checks from UPS or dont get paid are scams” I am not sure about this. Please do reply on this as soon as possible

  3. rizi-- -- -- May 28th, 2010 6:42 pm

    Even I noticed the grammer mistakes. and how can it be harmful to me? And he dont want to talk on phone as well, says he is impaired vocally. he keeps on giving me buzz on my yahoo IM and even leaves msgs on my phone. Did I make a mistake by giving him my Info. Let me know about it.

  4. christopher Rodriguez-- -- -- June 3rd, 2010 6:42 pm

    Hello, I have the samething going on RITE NOW> I have him on my IM and hes trying to get me to start this. I told him that I “did” buy the versa check things but i DID NOT, cause Iwant to see what he has to say. please email me what to do. I want to bring this fucker to justice if possible. Like come on I am 21 with enough of my own problems who want to get caught up for some bs when our time needs to be going towards making “real” money not this crap!

  5. msnj2010-- -- -- June 7th, 2010 1:07 pm

    I have a Qatar PetroChemical Co. doing the same thing to me right now. I lied and said I needed his bank account number and routing number to order checks and it was provided. How is everyone going about to get this guy caught if he is trying to scam. I started asking questions to this not good speller after he gave me his bank info and he turned around and accused me of scamming him, lol..I am going to block this guy from my IM. I hope I have not given him to much information about me already.

  6. Amanda-- -- -- June 8th, 2010 9:35 am

    I do not know how or why they are doing this but I have just became the victim too. To the girl whose name is Angela on here….I got the exact same lady as you described. She used the same name and sent me the same msgs. I was lucky enough not to have purchased the material yet, but was looking online to find out where I could purchase it. Thank God for this website!!!! I really thought it was a scam in the begining with this lady, but I thought I would give it a try. Im so glad this website came up when I was looking for places to buy the material. Now the lady is just telling me that this website we are on is a phony but I dont believe it. I believe she is. I actually think almost all the jobs on Craigslist are scams. Is there anything we can do to stop this lady so she does not take advantage of others?

  7. Amanda-- -- -- June 8th, 2010 9:48 am

    If I only gave them my name and address am I alright?

  8. Wayne-- -- -- June 9th, 2010 7:22 am

    Hello, I got the exact same email but the all grammars and spellings are correct. She asked me get the same versa softwares, i told her i didnt have any money and she suggested i buy it online office max but i told her i didnt have credit card. SO she offered to buy it and ship it to me but only under one condition. She ask me to set up a craiglist account and wanted me to post the same add in 10 states in the US for a friend of hers and the friend will pay me $200USD. Then she will use that money and buy the software and ship it to me. I am talking to her over IM and she seems genuine, so i am here so confused.

    My question is, how is this a scam being the fact that she didnt ask me to send any money to her.

  9. Nick-- -- -- June 9th, 2010 2:01 pm

    EVERYBODY,

    If you responded to a craigslist ad regarding an office/clerical position for data entry or something of that sort and you get a response for an online interview, CHANCES ARE IT IS A SCAM! I recently fell for it, the guy had me do an online interview for a company in Texas and hired me. He said I would be doing basic accounting and various other tasks through email that they would send. Two weeks for training at $10 an hour and after that I would receive a salary of $20 an hour and I would be working directly from home online. At first it was basic accounting problems then one day they had me scan and email a check which I did. When I became suspicious of this being a scam, I demanded a paycheck before I did anymore work. The next day a check was rush mailed via air to my house for almost $4,000 which was way more substantial than what they owed me. It was a Citibank check so I took it to Citibank where I was told it was a fake check. My so called “online boss” wanted me to deposit the check, take out the funds they owed me, and mail back the remainder. Since there were no funds attached to the check in the first place, the check would bounce I would have to pay a fee, and in turn I would be sending him real money. FInally, today I got a contact from my bank saying that they started mailing out fake checks with my bank account info. I have not lost any money but I am posting this so that no one else falls into this trap! So far, 37 other people have become victimized and have actually lost substantial amounts of money I luckily caught this in time. If anyone has any questions about this I will be more than happy to accept emails.

    I am currently dealing with the same exact thing. I got an email after posting a resume on craigslist from a William Jaine. All the person keeps saying to me now is “get the materials ready and we can go from there”. It seems to me that G7 has deviantly outsourced some very pathetic and low marketing tactic. Companies can outsource this kind of thing because people in other countries are willing to do a butt load of typing for two dollars a day.

  11. Tina-- -- -- June 28th, 2010 11:33 am

    I am dealing with the same thing with a guy named Gary Whitmore. He keeps telling me that he is a legit guy and has a real company called Rancho Sante fe Motors. But my gut tellls me don’t do it.

  12. Nick-- -- -- June 29th, 2010 6:15 am

    Tina,

    I would honestly stop wasting your time and report him. If you want to, demand a check in the mail like I did and you should receive one. It’ll be a fake and you can report them to your bank but by all means no not cash or deposit it because it will bounce. Our bank told us that this is a Nigerian scam and that they are located in Texas.

  13. Kathy-- -- -- July 1st, 2010 6:46 am

The guy apologized for being late responding and went on this big huge ass spiel about what I’d be doing..blah blah blah…little did he know Ive received about 50 of these things in the past two weeks.

  15. Joni Brown-- -- -- July 2nd, 2010 11:37 am

    I’ve been reading through some of the emails you guys have received and I got one almost exactly like it except the name was John Rollins. I’m talking to him on IM right now. He’s trying to convince me to buy the materials. I wish I knew of a way to turn this guy in! Below, for your humor I suppose, is what we have discussed so far.

    Mr John Rollins: Hello
    beautiriffic: Hello
    beautiriffic: I’m not sure what all I need to ask.
    Mr John Rollins: How are you doing
    beautiriffic: I’m doing good today, how are you?
    Mr John Rollins: Am doing great
    beautiriffic: I have never looked for a job online like this, and honestly I’m a little leary about the whole situation.
    beautiriffic: Can you tell me a little more about the company?
    Mr John Rollins: My name is Mr John Rollins Group Manager, Operations to Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO) Ltd)
    Mr John Rollins: you will be in charge in handling my company finances by making out payments and taken records of each payment mailed out to clients and workers, Is that clear to you now
    beautiriffic: I got all that from your first email actually.
    Mr John Rollins: Ok fine, did you got all the materials listed in the email for your position?
    beautiriffic: I do not have all the materials needed because I wanted to know more about the position first, as I have never heard of this company and never gotten a job from a site before.
    beautiriffic: Why won’t you tell me where your main office is located?
    Mr John Rollins has signed back in. (7/2/2010 12:25 PM)

    Mr John Rollins: The office located in NY i guess you got all that in the email sent to you?
    beautiriffic: No, I did not get that in the email you sent me. I asked you twice for the location and you did not answer me either time. If it was in the email, I would not have asked.
    Mr John Rollins: Our main office is currently under construction,so you have to work from home on the time being before the completion of our office
    beautiriffic: Why do I have to buy the materials? Any other company I have ever worked for has supplied me with whatever materials I needed.
    Mr John Rollins: We do supply the materials to client, but some people run away with our company materials
    beautiriffic: You told me in your email that if I bought the materials and sent you a copy of the receipt, I would be reimbursed. How is that not the same thing?
    Mr John Rollins: Yes, if you bought the materials and send us the confirmation receipt, that will show you ready to work
    beautiriffic: That would be the same thing as you buying them to begin with if you reimburse me for them.
    Mr John Rollins: Try and understand me Joni, alot people run away with our company stuff, so just try and boght the materials then you will get your reimbursement after 2 week working
    beautiriffic: Where are you from?
    Mr John Rollins is typing…
    Mr John Rollins: Am currently in NY but all my family in Ohio i do travell every weekend
    beautiriffic: I can tell by your grammar and spelling that you are not originally from this country. Care to try again?
    Mr John Rollins: Lol, well i guess you are not ready to work am not here to play,sorry

    OMG I JUST REPLIED TO AN EMAIL SIMILAR TO ALL WHAT YOU ARE ALL POSTING.
    i got a name similar to what @JONI BROWN had..
    i also got an email saying that i should be expecting a package soon?

    im so scared right now. like something horrible might happen.

  18. Brandy-- -- -- July 6th, 2010 8:26 am

    I am so glad I found this website, I would tell you my experiance but just read all the others on here, its exactly the same. I am going to try and get information from the person julia rollins and try to do what I can to stop this scam.

  19. colleen-- -- -- July 7th, 2010 8:13 am

    For the person who wanted to know what the scam is? First of all you will be what is called a “Check Mule” you will be printing bogus checks for these cretins..wich is check fraud , and who’s gonna get caught?? YOU!! cuz these jerks are probably in nigeria or someplace.. and ignorance is no excuse for the law..And you will be paid by bogus check..Then they get as much personal information as they can..get you to purchase equipment you dont need!! aquire account info ect then they will be printing checks from your account without your knowlege..then that UPS account they want you to open…and want the passwords to…they will charge shipping to they can also check credit card info if they have the password.And somehow I believe this g7ps.com is involved if not for fishing for some very shady sales practices. and my local police dept agrees.The advice that I got from the local sheriffs dept was to cut all ties. do not communicate with them at all. cancel all accounts. also just in the little town I live in there have been 3 reports of this fraud … Some people have lost alot of money.

    I almost just fell for the “same” Craigslist/IM interview, work-from-home scam. This particular character claimed to be with Joy Global (an otherwise legitimate international mining company), and although I came within an out of stock computer program of getting burnt (I went to Staples to purchase Versacheck 2010 Gold, it was “out”, I tried searching around for another location to buy it & came across this most helpful forum during my search), I have given a good deal of personal information (name, address, phone #s, e-mail addresses, but thankfully not copies of official documents, etc.). Should I be worried? Should I continue along & “play coy”? Should I presume that since this website comes up in a Google search for “Versacheck 2010 Gold Massachusetts” that they’ve probably read this & are already 1 step ahead of me? Any advice/feedback would be appreciated, and I’d be happy to try & answer any questions, etc. I might be able to help with. Thanks!

    Watch this:
    open the command prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd). Type in netstat and hit Enter. Those are all of your connections.

    Now begin a chat with one of the yahoo accounts, or whatever you chat with. Start talking to whoever is trying to scam you.

    Then type netstat again and hit enter after a few messages are received. If you can get them to share a file or photo with you, that would be best. It leaves the connection open.

    If you run Netstat and notice a new connection with Yahoo or 5050 in it, it’s the other person’s address (on the left of the colon where 5050 shows up).

    Copy that address, and type tracert -paste that address here- and wait until it completes.

    That command will trace them, and you can see if the servers stay inside the states or not. One of the last few servers will be their web host, and just before that you might get a major city near their actual location.

    What you copied, paste into an email and send it to the abuse department of the web host they are using. Usually you can tell because it has a brand name in it, such as ATT or Qwest.

    The internet provider knows who is using that address and when. I can do this myself, but this guy’s not responding and I don’t feel like talking to ‘em.

    I can do this for others but I would have to charge. I’m a programmer.

    This information is how to do what everyone’s been requesting. I’ve taken down a few sites in the past for spamming me from various media

    S

    ————————————Scam 1

    And also come online immediately on your yahoo instant messenger to
    chat with our rep for the next step and further instruction. If you
    don’t have a yahoo messenger you can download one and sign up for a
    user name then add us on this user name (robertrayme@yahoo.com).

    I got an email from Julia Rollins and I accidentally gave her my information but I have stopped responding to her emails and have blocked this woman. I want to report her to the Bureau. How can I do this & is it possible. What can you do to stop them from contacting you she does not have technically any information she could not find off the web. But what do I do? It is a scam after all she can’t do anything about it, but I am planning on using this and taking it to my local authorities otherwise.

  25. colleen-- -- -- July 15th, 2010 7:58 am

    There is a FBI site to report internet fraud online, the problem is that they get thousands of reports a month. and as these jerks live out of the country they really dont even go there(its FBI internet fraud)..But still report them!! Then go to your local police and report them, Dont be discouraged, They will only be able to write a report.I also blocked the Im’s and tried to have her account canceled,but aparrently it is OK with Microsoft to scam people if your not harrassing them, so they refused to close her account. wich is questionable!!I have found that the best thing I can do is BLAST these SCAMMERS at every scam site you can find!! to make people aware of what theyre doing!! After all this is where they work. at least it will make it more difficult to pull this off!! be sure to use names and connections ,websites you were reffered to ect. usurally there all connected in the scam!!

    I was corresponding with one of the scammer name Jodie, I got her to send me a text message and I got her number, maybe some one could track her down from the number #14065454968

    I just got a similar story.

    So today this guy was about to buy my guitar that i listed in craigslist.
    But he was refused to pay me directly, and he said he’s going to send the money with paypal.

    Hes going to send me $1450 (my guitar was $750 + $100 best offer fee + shipping fee $600 which he wanted me to sent this amount to his ‘mover’ via western union).

    and a few minutes later an email came from paypal, but i was smart enough to tell it wasnt the real paypal, because in the email there;s an instruction on how the money is going to be released. Which is by sending the $600 via western union first and send the MTCN number by replying to that email.

    I know paypal doesnt do that kind of thing. So i told him i dont want to do it.. and he got angry but he said that’s fine. After that he was asking all kind of personal questions such as jobs, where do i live, etc.. and suddenly he said he likes me and wants to offer me a job.

    So thats where the part where I have to buy all the materials he needed to start the job. Versacheck Gold 2010 and 250 checkes + printer and scanner.

    And then when i do my research on Versacheck Gold 2010, i found this website. THANKS GOD!!

    I hope everyone else that are about to get tricked finds this website too.

    Hello,

    Hope you’re having a pleasant day today

    I got your resume from Craig list and i don’t know if you can be interested in the job
    offer available. Do take time to go through this introductory mail and feel free to
    pass any questions on.

    My profile briefly:

    I’m Smith Beckham, 48, a divorced father of 2 wonderful kids, a successful
    entrepreneur and investor, a member of the Angel Investment Network. I’m also a
    research journalist and I travel every now and then within and outside the US working
    on various independent projects, this is why I need someone who can help keep up to
    date with all of my activities especially when I’m away and amidst my busy schedule.

    I have had a previous PA who has been very commendable in her activities and who has
    been part of my life for the past 6 months, she has since moved on with her personal
    life and it has affected me in a way. I found her previously on the craigslist.com
    website and I sincerely hope I will be able to find someone again who will be as
    efficient as she has been.

    Please note that you are being hired only on a personal level. All correspondences
    would be made and promptly reported to me personally. The position is part time and
    home-based meaning you can work most times from your home as long as you have a
    regular internet access. You are also hired on a trial basis for now until we are able
    to see how well we fit in, this however does not affect your weekly wage.

    Most of your activities will be carried out locally and most official packages will be
    delivered via posts. You will be actively involved in my personal, business and
    financial life. In summary, your activities as my personal assistant amongst other
    things will include;

    * Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence;
    * Running personal errands, supervisions and monitoring;
    * Organizing and maintaining diaries, memos and making appointments;
    * Dealing with incoming email, faxes and post;
    * Carrying out background research and presenting findings;
    * A personal reminder for Schedules, programs, flights and keeping me up to date with them as they come up;
    * Arranging travel and accommodation
    * Carrying out specific projects and research;
    * Taking on some of the my responsibilities and working more closely with management and other staff related to me;
    * Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf.
    * Handling and monitoring financial activities.
    * Processing and taking charge of weekly payments and purchases.
    * You will also be a part of my household and a helping hand to issues as they arise.
    * General clerical activities.

    Basic wage is $500 a week.

    Any extra personal expenses (transport, gas, etc) incurred by you while on an errand
    or otherwise will also be reimbursed by me at the end of each working week.
    This position is very flexible and it is difficult judging the exact number of hours
    you will be doing, just bear it in mind that there will be busier weeks than others
    with a steady pay. Working with me is basically about instructions and following them,
    my only fear is that I may come at you imprompt sometimes, so I need someone who can
    be able to meet up with my irregular timings. There is also a very sensitive issue on
    trust, dedication and accountability which I believe will resolve itself as time goes on.
    This is only an introductory e-mail, as time goes on we should be able to arrange a
    proper meeting to get things started officially. I’m currently in Australia now for a
    project, however, I do have a number of things you could help me with immediately,
    prior to my arrival.
    Due to the excessive number of responses to my Ad, do provide the following details
    about yourself for my personal record update and to filter applicants;
    Full Names
    Full Contact Address
    City
    State
    Zip Code
    Phone Number (H)
    Phone Number (M)
    Occupation (if any)
    Sex
    Martial status
    Age
    I hope you can be available for me immediately before I arrive, it certainly can act
    as a stable foundation to our impending working relationship.
    Hope to hear from you again.

  36. Daniel-- -- -- July 21st, 2010 10:48 pm

    All this was completey wrong i did this job for about 4 years It was notb a scam so please dont mind what people say But am still doing this it really pays for me

  37. colleen-- -- -- July 23rd, 2010 6:43 am

    To Daniel,
    If youre so convinced this is legit, what are you doing on on scam radar checking it out?? FYI Mine was a CONFIRMED LEGITIMATE SCAM..and i get these in my inbox every day… yours might be legit but there are thousands that are not. Did the company you work for check out your background or credit before hireing?? or get your info for tax purposes??Just wondering cuz the company that wanted to hire me didnt.. also if you remember right from reading mine, the scammers used a legitimate company name…and a legit contact name in HR.. Both were confirmed frauds.. These are SCAMMERS that take money from people that dont have any to begin with. BTW you must be one of them because you cant spell either..

  38. jojy-- -- -- July 23rd, 2010 7:25 am

    Continuation to my earlier post “jojy on July 21st, 2010 9:57 am”

    I emailed back Lisa Willam telling her that i checked online and saw that what she had emailed me was a scam and No reply after that … Guess hu I figured her out!!

    when i replied back to her first email i got a reply within minutes… when i told her i think she was a scam … no reply at all and that too in 2 days!

    So i think the best check is to just tell them i saw stuff online and think you are a scam and see if they come back fighting!!

  39. Suze-- -- -- July 23rd, 2010 12:46 pm

    I agree with Colleen about Daniel. I noticed the spelling has errors just like the email I received from the SCAMMER. What everyone needs to consider about this whole deal is that you will be printing checks with information sent to you (bank account & routing number) This could point the blame for the fraudulent checks back to the person who prints them and mails them. When you explain to the FBI that you were told to print them for your job what kind of proof do you have that anyone told you to print them? This scammer wants to communicate with you through IM so you will not have any proof. You will be on the post office security camera…your fingerprints will be on the checks and envelopes. They want to wire the money to you so you have no proof this was a job. I think Daniel posted here trying to convince people that all is good and this is legitimate. The old adage if it sounds to good to be true it usually is applies.

  40. colleen-- -- -- July 24th, 2010 7:28 am

    Jojy.
    No reply is good in this case, cut all ties. This fake Kathleen Wallen still insisted this was legit, for days!! and kept IM’ing me asking whats wrong and why I wasnt going to the bank. and telling me she was very upset with me!! LOL..Even after I spoke to the real Kathleen Wallen at Duane Morris law firm..LOL and the real Kathleen has no problems hearing nor does she use IM or relay to say these are SCAMMERS!! AND I IM’ed the person representing herself (as the fake Kathleen Wallen,) calling her a thief, fraud,and SCAMMER!! and she still wanted me to work for her..REALLY!! What HR rep would want to hire you after that??LOL Even the investigator at my local police Dept was laughing when I gave him a copy of the e-mail I sent her..stating LOL THATS GOOD!!!! and im so proud of myself i did it without swearing!!!roflmao…

  41. Tom Vergona-- -- -- July 25th, 2010 1:49 pm

    I was about to fall into this very trap myself, if it wasn’t for googling the company
    Incredifix coop inc. and finding this scam alert. It just amazes me how these people prey on the unemployed and older adults. This isn’t the first time, but it will be the last for me!
    It was the ole need a personal asst routine to start the the you’ll need the following, but don’t worry I’ll pay for it because you’re my employee…then the check for $1,9600.00 in the mail, following instructions and a gracious I’ve included $50 for gas for you !
    I sent her (Lisa Smith), back an email informing her of her bad math she had indicated w/ quicklinks where to purchase the software and printer and ink and the total was $300.00. Unfortunately for her the total w/o the gas was $344.97 hence leavin not enough money to launder.They just picked an estimator to do the dirty work, instead of somebody who didn’t check.
    Thanks again fot the alert

  42. colleen-- -- -- July 26th, 2010 10:27 am

    Tom, Your so lucky im glad you did your checking..That check would have bounced in your account and you would have been stuck with the damages. I guess it goes with the old saying if it sounds to good to be true it probably is!! Im not saying there are not legitimate companies that use the internet ,or are partially internet based, but if it has to do with payroll its most likely not legit…Lets face it payroll is complicated .. and any one who says you dont need experience, is FULL OF IT!! The company that I work for (as an event specialist and team leader, hired me over the internet all my hours and communications are reported through some form of internet, one thing, I do have a supervisor and someplace to report and I SPOKE to HR. before faxing my ability to work in the US along with all the other checks companies do these days before hireing (without giving the scammers too much information) we all know how hard it is to get a good job these days. dont be fooled always do your checking.. I called Duane Morris Lawfirm to confirm the offer.. Only to be told I got SCAMMED. theres no shame in a confirmation if its legit youll have good news RIGHT!!

  43. Kecia-- -- -- July 27th, 2010 10:47 am

    OMG. Amazing what people will do to. I received the same email as Raine did, except its from Jenifer Brown. I knew it was a scam, because who would hire someone they never met or even knew to write checks on behalf of their company. The lenghts people go to get money. Times are hard and the last thing I need is the FBI kicking in my door for fraudulent checks being printed and mailed from my home. These people need to be stopped. I thank God for giving me the intelligence and common sense not to fall for this, although I’m pretty sure someone has and will be paying with some jail time real soon.

  44. billy joe ralph brown-- -- -- July 27th, 2010 11:23 am

    I really hate these kinds of scams. It’s amazing what people will do to take advantage of others. In this difficult economic time, people are particularly vulnerable.

  45. mark-- -- -- July 30th, 2010 7:26 am

    I also google everything while looking for the perfect job. I always go with if it sounds to good to be true then it probably is. With this in mind I googled the person that sent the e-mail and ended up here. I had sent something saying that I do not give my bank and routing number out over the internet and got the letters you show above. I have since not responded to anything they sent, even though one of the e-mails say “Your Utmost Response will be highly appreciated,Please note that even if you are not interested,do so by sending a simple not interested message so i canmove on by searching for someone else.” My suggestion would be not to reply to any of these other than to your e-mail carrier saying that it is spam. With all the people wanting to get an accounting/bookkeeping job on this website it is to bad there is not a legitimate business we could form together as it looks like we would know what scams look like on the internet and that alone is a bonus for any business.
    Thanks for the info!!

    After stupidly giving them my name and address, I realized it was a scam, and this is the conversation we had after I figured it out:

    work:
    Are you there

    Me:
    Nope, sorry, you guys are scammers and its disgusting.

    I am an honest person, trying to find a REAL job where i wont be printing fake checks and recieving fake checks. I need to make rent, so please don’t waste my time any longer.

    work:
    Never we my company do that

    never we my company?
    you don’t even know how to speak english

    work:
    what do you mean

    Me:
    I mean, you are trying to scam me.

    work:
    Stop that am a God fearing person never will i do that

    Me:
    maybe it’s because of all the sites I’m seeing with testimonials of people being scammed, recieving pretty much the same exact e-mails that I did that’s turning me away from this
    “job opportunity”

    Karma’s a bitch, you know…maybe you should get some morals and find a decent living.

    work:
    Stop all these words because am not part of them

    And then they stopped talking.

    Some people…

    The E-mail I received this morning after sending my resume:

    Thanks for your interests in the PA position, I will deeply appreciate all genuine efforts to help me monitor and keep up to date with all my activities.

Basic wage is $500 a weekly About me:

    My name is Mr Richard Brown,i have a family of 3 and i am a Realtor and Lawyer.I travel alot,hence the reason why i need an assistant to handle affairs for me on the home front when i am away on business which is usually quite often.

    I also got emails exactly this as did my husband. she said her name was stephanie jones and another alias was stephanie hughes. she asked me to get supplies but i dont have the money so she said she’d send me a package. she started off emailing for a personal assistant job, said i would run errands, get her mail and keep track or client purchases. she sent me an ipad in the mail to sell (under another name) and then asked me to purchase versacheck paper, envelopes, ink, waybills from fedex AND ups. then sent me the versacheck gold program and wanted me to print out checks for insane amounts. there was at least 30 names and addresses on that list, and all checks were for 2500 and up. My husband received emails from a jeff, and a mark and another guy ben! they all said he would be mailed checks, cash them deduct 10% and mail the rest to their clients. we compared lists and they were the same people!!! i wish we can find a way to turn them all in!!!

  54. Anna-- -- -- August 18th, 2010 9:19 pm

    I have been going back and forth via e-mail with someone claiming the same stuff. However, the guy says he pays via western union which is gauranteed funds. It wouldn’t be a check that could be fake and have me sedning him the difference. In that instance what would be the scam?

  62. terminator-- -- -- September 8th, 2010 7:19 pm

    WHAT A SCAM!!!! Do people actually fall for this without any search on the company they want to work for? Email from people overseas and no phone numbers to contact them, and they don’t want to talk to you but they want to hire you for accounts payable/receivable!!!!! (aka MONEY MULE for fake checks). They use a real company names but no one knows who they are if you call the company HR department. And this damn G7PS website, may its owners burn in hell, operates freely as the connection for these nigerian or whatever they are scam artist to look real. G7PS.com sells fake printers. hello people!! a $200 INKJET printer can not print a real bank check. Only $2000 LASER printer can do this. How can the FBI let this site operate? It’s putting U.S. citizens behind bars for becoming money mules yet it keeps letting this f**king site still operate. LETS STOP THE MADNESS PEOPLE.

  63. Lori-- -- -- September 9th, 2010 11:05 am

    OMG – I just looked this up myself – I have been on yahoo messenger with the Mario Ruiz – and “I got the job”………….UGH – I replied to a craigslist job posting as well and did the “interview” thru yahoo – and he didn’t ask many questions of me, etc……. and never really did give me answers to the actual job – just simple yes and no answers……….. so I decided to look up his name…….. THANK YOU for some sense in my head – I was getting too excited about actually having a job at home………. oh well – glad I didn’t go out and invest in paper, ink, envelopes, etc………

  65. Sharon-- -- -- September 11th, 2010 8:58 pm

    OMG, This people is the newest, latest scam, and the Versa Gold 2010, must be really good, at printing checks because even the banks can’t tell that it is fake. But the lady that posted when you write all these bogus checks, the FBI is coming after you, and not the scammers. The lady that sent me a check, over did the check by a large amount, she gave me 1980.00 but I was only allowed 400.00, the rest I was suppose to wire by Western Union to another person named Lisa, in Fla. That way the money is gone bye-bye, and all at my expense
    because my name is on the check, and at this point the bank will be wanting their 1,980.00 back because, like I said the bank is duped as well. So the bottom line is you will be out the money, and have all this computer stuff, and still no job. From now on be bold, just delete all crap like this off your computer. I am still working on this myself, one lawyer told me to “bank the money”. Don’t buy anything. But Karma makes me do the right thing, I don’t want no part of this.

  66. MICHAEL A GREEN-- -- -- September 12th, 2010 3:51 pm

    know the F.B.I will come it me they will ask question who you are talk with on this scamm, and try to help you get your money back , if you give them a try to help but if you still keep making the checks out the bank will find out about and they will contract the F.B.I and them to find where the pinter is and shut it down take it and all the other stuff with it and press charges you might get some time in there jail far a little while until this is clear off you r record trust i donot make checks out at my home are at any office unless that is a way to show the I.R.S THE REAL DEAL ON THIS . thank you and you have a nice day are night .

  67. Pamela-- -- -- September 16th, 2010 4:44 pm

    Heres a new twist on the scam possibly..My daughter & I started working for these people because they were wiling to send all the materials!Versa check paper,ink,UPS account no to use,business name & address which we checked out at the Better Business Bureau.NOthing negative was reported at BBB.Since we didn’t have to buy materials we were thinking its legit.Has anyone else had the materials shipped to them?We didn’t have to buy anything.Is this a scam?We havent received a paycheck yet,havent worked a month yet.Anyone else have materials shipped to them?Still trying to figure out if this company is a scam.He is John Terry, Shipping Company Item in the IM.Company he suposedly works for is,UKcars4sales.Management Allied Textiles,LTD Preston Works in Scotland.Sound familiar to anyone?

  68. Colleen-- -- -- September 19th, 2010 11:34 pm

    Pamella, I was sent all the equipment and printer, after I made G7PS cancell the transaction…stupid scammers…I should have at least kept the free printer LOL but after all the headache I wanted nothing to do with it and cut all ties as recommended by my local police dept. YES this operation is a scam!!!

    I got this email, too. The mispellings certainly bothered me. I decided to check it out after they talked about chatting on IM. I’m so glad I found this website and confirmed this stuff before I did anything stupid.

    I am indeed sorry for the late response , I had to make sure all
    informations is verified upon registration before mailing out any
    payment for the items needed . Everything has been confirmed and i
    have authorized payment to you for purchase of the items to avoid
    further delays .

    United States Postal Service {USPS} should be delivering the envelope
    Via Regular Mail Post . So i want you to keep me posted once you
    receive the check from the Postman – The Envelope is coming from PPC
    SERVICE – Florida . So i can give you Paycircle informations for
    registration of the Versa Programs and more informations on the items
    and the website / where you can order the items .

    Let me know as soon as you receive my parcel.
    Thanks.

    I’m sure you’ll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point, as I am presently in the United Kingdom, I will be back in the states in Four Weeks.(November to be precise)

    I think you’re the right person for this post, please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules, it’s a part-time, work from home basis and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others, so it’s a little difficult judging the exact number of hours you’ll be doing per week. If you can manage your time properly, this job may even give you some extra while you do something else on the side. As I have said, I’d want us to get a head start with things as soon as possible. I do have a pile up of work and a number of unattended chores which you can immediately assist me with, I hope we can meet up with the workload eventually.Permit me to use the coming week to test your efficiency and diligence towards all this, also to work out your time schedule and fit it to mine. I really need to find the perfect person for this job, I’m confident you can take up the challenge and on the long run we should have a relatively sound working relationship between us. It may be a little difficult working out the time difference between us initially, with time however, we should get used to it. I’m online most of the time as I am hard of hearing so I prefer to we contact each other through E-mails, but if there is need for me to call, I will make use of the online means of making phone calls. I am glad you are willing to work with me and i promise to be a good boss. I am also glad on the commitment in working. I have been checking my files and what i would want you to do for me this week is to run some errands out to make donations to some Orphanage Homes and Motherless Babies home people, I do that everytime even before the crisis.The funds will be in form of Money Order or a Bank Certified Check and it will be sent over to you from one of my clients and i have some list to email you once you received the funds,You will be sent the instructions on where to send the funds and how to.I will get you more information on that,I will like you to get back to me with your Contact Details such as:

    Full Name:
    Contact Address,
    City:
    State:
    Zip-Code:
    Phone Number:
    Occupation:

    Once I have received your contact information, I will get back to you with the task for this week,Understand you will also be paid as well as its important for me to make the necessary steps before i get back from my business trip back to the states. Hope I am clear with that.

    I posted earlier on Versacheck fraud.THey had us printing & mailing checks out UPS overnight air.UPS told us this was a fraud.I called every bank to verify account they had us use on checks.All accounts were fake! UPS acount used to mail chcks was stolen. After my daughter & I told the scammers we knew they were scammin us,they threatened to find us no matter what and kill us!!! They said they have ways of dealing with us.They cussed us out pretty bad also! Using the “F” word.They texted us & threatened our lives for 2 days.They do have our address unfortunately.So theses people can get VERY nasty!They tried to pay me with a fake check.They told me to make one to myself for $4500,cash it then send the rest to another person via WESTERN union.So I caught them in 2 scams!

  82. Kim-- -- -- September 30th, 2010 10:25 am

    I have dealt with a few of these scamers. I have recieved 2 different “fake” checks and money orders. I am keeping them as souvineers. LOL , I am bored sometimes so, I PLAY WITH THEM SOMETIMES!! I obviousely have too much time on my hands. Anyway, one of them told me of a lady named Aishah from another country who does not know me and was dying and wanted to leave me millions of US dollars after her death. She supposedly died a couple of months later and then of course the Attorney who takes care of her will emailed me and told me that I needed to send him $450 because that is the cost of what it would cost him to get a money order/bank check to mail to me. At first he insisted that I give him my account info. I told him I had no bank account. LOL Then one time I told him to send me a round trip ticket to England and I would reimburse him with my inheritance money. I said I wanted to pick up the money myself. He said he could not, and I told him I could not understand how a Lawyer could not afford a few dollars to do this. In the end, when I find out the checks are bad, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE TELLING THEM OFF!!!!!!! This is my favorite thing to do!!! LOL it is kinda fun!!! and it burns off internal steam. Anyway, have fun with the ones who try to scam you!! It feels great!!!!

    Hey y’all, this is one I JUST got after I wrote the last blog. Check this out …

    Good day,

    My names are Mary Spencer. I was diagnosed of cancer about 2 years ago, and was receiving treatment for it, but now the doctors are saying I have a short time to live.

    When I was in better health, I never really cared for any body with no children of my own. I lost my husband so many years ago. I was a selfish and greedy person.
    I have decided to donate a large sum of money to you, so you can disburse to charities, widows, orphans and less privileged. I was doing this myself but now my health has deteriorated, I wanted my relatives to do this for me but they only saw it as an opportunity to enrich themselves.

    I will be going in for an operation soon, I want this last act of mine to be an offering unto God, perhaps he will have mercy on me. Please contact my lawyer with the below:

    Michael Shaad
    shaad.solicitors@att.net

    Quote my ref # : will/Wlaw/Pn/lr/93/ytx/ when responding.
    I am sending him a copy of this message as well so he is aware of my intentions, Please use the funds well and always extend the good works to others.

    Stay blessed,

    Mary Spencer

    So, what do you think?? Of course this is a pile of crap, because if it was real, and she really wanted to “help” charities then she would know enough to donate the rest of her estate to a church!! LOL what a loser!! If anyone wishes to call her bluff please feel free to email her and play as much as you wish!! He/she deserves it!! Tell him/her what a loser he/she is and that we are way too smart for her crap! BLOW UP HIS/HER INBOX SO MUCH THAT THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT HIT THEM!!!!! LOL LOL LOL Then, make up some scam and try it on them. lol tell them you’re looking for someone to work from home who wants to make $1500/mo. and have fun with them, really. It works … you will feel sooo much better when you’re done. Like justice has been served!!!

    I’m on IM with one now. For your amusement:

    scampbell2003: Hey are you there?
    bonsue001: Yes i am here,How are you doing?
    scampbell2003: Not bad, and you?
    scampbell2003: Where are you located?
    bonsue001: Good.
    bonsue001: So do you have the programe and the bussiness check paper
    scampbell2003: Not yet. I need the information on where the programe is and the check paper.
    scampbell2003: Where are you located?
    bonsue001: Ukraine
    scampbell2003: What time is it there?
    bonsue001: I taught you said you have the materails and ready to be trained
    bonsue001: 4:11pm
    scampbell2003: I said that I had the materials, but wasn’t referring to the programe, I don’t have the name of the programe yet!
    bonsue001: Well you will need to get the programe and the check paper from the store
    scampbell2003: I can do that, I just need the specifics
    scampbell2003: Before I invest money into these things, shouldn’t there be some documentation of employment put in place first?
    bonsue001: Oh i see. Well the name of the programe was included in the previous email.Maybe you didn’t notice that
    bonsue001: 2010 Versa Gold Check Software & Versa Check Business Paper .
    bonsue001: Yes it is 2010 Versa Gold Check Software & Versa Check Business Paper .
    bonsue001: And you have the rest materails like.Printer,Glue or tape with Blank Papers .
    scampbell2003: I have the Printer, tape and printing papers already, yes.
    bonsue001: And also i hope you understood that there will be reimbursement with the money spent on materails.So you will let me have the invoice of the materails
    bonsue001: So i can be aware on the total money spent and will be reimburse with your first pay salary .
    scampbell2003: That is understandable as well. Again, before I invest money into these things, shouldn’t there be some documentation of employment put in place first?
    bonsue001: There is no need of any documentation or employment form. And the details for the application form is just the details you have filled in the form . And that is all is needed for now to start the position.
    scampbell2003: There are too many scam artists / frauds / and crooks on Craigslist for me to spend the money on these things without an agreement.
    bonsue001: Well i can understand you,But this is how we go with things and everything is clear and fine and i am pretty sure you will also enjoy working with us. Once you get started to the position .
    bonsue001: So you can get the materails from Office Depot,Office Max,And once you get back from the store. You will be trained on the software and then start the payroll.
    scampbell2003: No offense, but we don’t operate in that manner in the US! I can help you and would like to get started just as much as you would like to get things off the ground. I have a major issue buying items and beginning working on the simple trust that somebody I don’t know will pay me when I’m done. Does that make sense? I need to feel secure that I’m not wasting my time Denovan.
    bonsue001: Of course Stephen you are not wasting your time and also you are told there will be reimbursement for the materials
    bonsue001: So the form you filled in the email was the contract form and every other arrangement has been taken here and that was used to create a file with the company and it has already been done.
    bonsue001: And as long as you get started to the position you are to get paid for your service
    scampbell2003: Trust me I understand what you are saying, and that information makes sense. I just don’t feel secure. I need more information, or to talk to someone, or to see the process, or to sign a contract. I don’t feel comfortable working under these circumstances. Please understand that I am an educated man and there are a lot of people on Craigslist that are just looking to take your money and time and keep moving. Do you not see how I am concerned? Send me more information about you and your business and your address and allow me 15 minutes to research if you’re not willing to have me sign a contract, and at that point I’ll let you know for sure if we have an agreement.
    BUZZ!!!
    scampbell2003: ?
    bonsue001: Of course Stephen you are not wasting your time and also you are told there will be reimbursement for the materials
    bonsue001: So the form you filled in the email was the contract form and every other arrangement has been taken here and that was used to create a file with the company and it has already been done.
    bonsue001: And as long as you get started to the position you are to get paid for your service
    scampbell2003: Perfect. That makes me feel comfortable.
    bonsue001: Yes.I am pretty sure when you get started to your position and get paid for your service.You would really love the job for what it is.
    BUZZ!!!
    scampbell2003: Please don’t ever buzz me again.
    bonsue001: Yes.I am pretty sure when you get started to your position and get paid for your service.You would really love the job for what it is.
    scampbell2003: Buzz me again and I will have to block you, that is annoying.
    bonsue001: Oh. I taught you were not getting the message
    scampbell2003: I get the messages Denovan.
    bonsue001: Sorry for that.I taught you didn’t get it because i am having slow connection today.So was checking.Sorry
    scampbell2003: It’s okay.
    bonsue001: Sorry for that once again .
    scampbell2003: I will get the software and check papers.
    scampbell2003: So what’s your company’s address?
    bonsue001: Company Name: Metalagrotrade Ltd
    bonsue001: Company address: Nauky Prospect 9 ,Kiev, Kiev ,Ukraine 03028 .
    bonsue001: What is the time there?
    scampbell2003: 9:33am
    bonsue001: And when are you going to the the materails? What time.So i can know when to expect you online and you can be trained.
    scampbell2003: I have my driver going to pick up the materials right now.
    bonsue001: Oh ok.So he should be back in some couple of minutes i guess ?
    scampbell2003: Office Depot doesn’t have the software, he’s talking to me now.
    bonsue001: He should check at staples
    scampbell2003: Why would Staples have it? They are competitors and carry the same software…
    bonsue001: He will get that at Office Max or Staples.
    bonsue001: Office Depot don’t carry all the software sometimes.And that is why i said earlier in the email. You can Pick that up at Office Max , and if your town is a small town ,You can also check at Staples. Because depend on how the store is stocked.
    bonsue001 is typing…Bookmark

    I didn’t get scammed into the VersaCheck because I told Michelle V Maness that I was not in a position to purchase supplies and she offered another position for me – posting ads to Craigslist that paid $300/week and that i would get my check via overnight on Sat (today). I have received check and started some more research and questioned Michelle Maness about the check – She said the secretary made a mistake on the amount and I needed to cash the check and let he know when I had the cash and she would give me the address to send the extra money. I told her that I was going to destroy the check – here is the conversation
    BUZZ!!!
    Michelle v maness: Hi
    tarheelgonenorth: Good morning
    Michelle v maness: How are you doing, your got your payment today ok?
    tarheelgonenorth: Do good so far, nothing yet
    Michelle v maness: Ok, did you need the tracking numbers to trace the package ?
    BUZZ!!!
    tarheelgonenorth: If you have them I’ll take them and track the package. Is this payment for this week or next week. Do you know about assignments for next week
    Michelle v maness: You have a assignment to do today before you receie your payment
    Michelle v maness: Here is the tracking # for the package…. 1ZVY22554491564948
    tarheelgonenorth: What is the assignment? I have not received anything about an assignment.
    Michelle v maness: Yes i know, did you got the tracking numbers i sent to you now ?
    tarheelgonenorth: yes this is what you sent – 1ZVY22554491564948
    Michelle v maness: the secretary made a mistake of sending more than the asking price for your posting
    Michelle v maness: You have to cash the check and deduct your money for the posting and send the rest back to our client
    Michelle v maness: I’m i understood?
    tarheelgonenorth: yes
    Michelle v maness: Ok, i will let you know once the package deliver to you
    Michelle v maness: also free free to track it online at http://www.ups.com
    tarheelgonenorth: I didtrack andit is in transit
    Michelle v maness: Yes, and it’s OUT FOR DELIVERY
    BUZZ!!!
    Michelle v maness: Are you there Ashley ?

    tarheelgonenorth: ok
    BUZZ!!!

    tarheelgonenorth: I have received the payment from ups

    Michelle v maness: All you need to do now, is to go ahead and widraw the cash the deduct your money for the posting and come back home for where to send the rest to
    Michelle v maness: the total amount on the pay check is $1,450.55 right ?
    tarheelgonenorth: this check looks a little shady especially for the amount. i will not beabletoget to the bank until next week.
    tarheelgonenorth: yes
    Michelle v maness: Why next week ?
    tarheelgonenorth: that is the way my schedule is – sorry $300 a week is not a way of life for me to sit on the computer all day and it sure as hell does not pay the bills. i have a full time job to look for that will provide for my family
    Michelle v maness: Ok, hope you will complete the assignment on Monday ?
    tarheelgonenorth: banks are closed on monday – its a holiday
    Michelle v maness: Yes, same here

    tarheelgonenorth: I’m not going to be cashing a check for money and it be return and damage my bank account for money that i do not have
    Michelle v maness: I’m very busy here, you can call who ever you want to call, if you are not ready to receive your payment, i will send you address to return the check
    tarheelgonenorth: If I have to pay more than the regular postage to send check back to whomever, then I will be destroying the check

    I was concerned about an email that I recieved about an online assistant so i began to do some research on the CEO and the company and seen these blogs about a SCAM. I am so glad that I decided to do the research. I recieved that same email as Dave Carmen sent by so called CEO Dave Scott from KAC Builders Merchants.

    So, after spending the last 3hrs reading and re-reading everyones posts on here I believe this is exactly what just happened and is happening to me now. I was selling a TV stand on Craigslist and was contacted via email asking if the item was still 4-sale when I replied yes they asked for my address so a money order could be mailed. When I recieved it I was suppose to contact them for pickup. After I got the check and verified it with the bank it was fake, and it was 3500.00 for a 300.00 TV stand I was selling and yet of course they wanted me to send the funds back because they over paid me, on accident, ok right who really over pays someone 3200.00 and not just stop payment if it was a real error. I knew it was a scam, then the same lady Flora sends me and email after I refused to send her funds back, telling me that she was sorry for the misunderstanding, and that she would like me to keep some of the funds for my time. I told her what I did with the check and that there was actually a stop payment put on the check after it was issued. She blamed it on her client and said would I like a job, out of no where, so I played along and after about this job, and it is the exact same thing everyone is reporting, the paper, the software the Versa Check, I told her I had no money sorry I can’t do that. She then proceeded to ask me to do postings for her and she would pay me 250-300 bi-weekly for 1-2hrs a week posting ads on craigslist.com for her. Company’s name is “Harpoon Work and Wears Inc” but of course after looking it up I find nothing. I have her on chat as well. She is telling me she is in KY but I never find her online except weird hrs of the night and early morning. I think these people need to be be taking down and I think Craigslist needs to get better at who and what they allow posted on their website.

    I just got the same type of email and was excited about the job opportunity since I haven’t been getting much feedback from anywhere. The last email I got was from Steve Stauch (probably a fake name) saying I need to buy a Versa Gold 2010 for 79.99 at Staples….etc, and he said he would reimburse me. I told my husband about this and he looked it up on Scam Radar. He found out that this is a huge scam. Thank God he found this. BEWARE

  93. MICHAEL GREEM-- -- -- October 24th, 2010 9:01 am

    I almost got suckered twice within 24 hrs by 2 different ppl requiring all this information and being very pushy about it!! Thanks to you of you out there that have this info posted!!! I am desperate to find a job and these positions sounded great until I started researching!!! I have spoken to someone with the name Ben and is 45 yrs old with an email address of Walex Lawalson” <walelaw04@gmail.com and "Mellisa White" <wmellisa66@yahoo.com. So beware!!!

  96. DM-- -- -- November 2nd, 2010 6:07 pm

    They responded to my resume on Craigslist – they are identifying themselves as Arnold N. Honkamp from Honkamp Krueger & Co. but it is coming from hainingbigredd@yahoo.com and they texted me through some free texting service rather than an actual number. Obvious scam, was suspicious from the beginning, I hope no one out there is actually falling for this. I know that in tough times when you are looking for work you’re willing to believe almost anything just to make money, it’s a shame there are people out there in the world doing this to people.

  100. Teague-- -- -- November 30th, 2010 5:55 pm

    PLEASE…EVERYONE….REPORT HIM TO ANY JOB LISTING COMPANIES HE OR
    ( SO CALLED FRIENDS) USE…….

    THE LOWEST OF LOW IS TO SAY YOUR WIFE JUST DIED…….THAT IS JUST

    TWISTED AND SICK……BUT ONLY A SCAM PERSON WOULD GO SO LOW.

    THERE ARE SOME COMPANIES THAT ARE TRUE…IT’S HARD TO SAY WHO….
    iF YOU THINK IT IS….YOU ARE RIGHT IT IS A SCAM.

  101. Vera-- -- -- December 1st, 2010 7:41 am

    I was in a similiar situation.I got an email from a person called Anna Lee email address r.stone2001@yahoo.com. After emailing back and forth, with the same shopping list as everyone else got, I asked her for her company name. She said it was Lefage Cement located in UK and S. Africa. It was the same story, they would reimburse all expenses with the first pay check blah, blah. What made me suspicious is that she said not to order the software on line, but to go to staples or wmart to buy it. She said they will ask too many questions on line!! However, when I did go online, I saw your website and was grateful for the reviews. Thanks for posting all these scam stories. You saved my from another one.

  102. Pam-- -- -- December 1st, 2010 2:36 pm

    Well they are back at it again. I got an email out of the blue. They said they got my name from the Chamber of Commerce … yeah, right?

    Anyway, I got a US Postal Money Order for $850 to go buy the software I need, etc.

    I can’t get them to tell me anything about their company. I just know that payroll and taxes go hand-in-hand and this is really shady looking.

    Thanks for this website with the warnings. I almost fell into their clutches.

  103. Teague-- -- -- December 3rd, 2010 1:17 pm

    NEED HELP…….NEED HELP.FAST…. I FEEL FOR THE WHOLE JOB SCAM……..Thought I was doing the right thing by sending out commotion checks to Kelvin Rutty’s clients.
    He provided me with all the information ect…….I mailed them out, still thinking that everything is OK because why would G7 sell the product to do these checks if everything was legit. Now I advised him that I will no longer do them & he is threating me and my family…..He has my resume so he has my house number.
    He said that he will call the FBI…ect….now he wants me to do another month’s worth of checks and he will never bother me again….All the IM Chats that we had I emailed to myself as backup documents…….

  104. MICHAEL GREEM-- -- -- December 3rd, 2010 7:49 pm

    ok people here what i wood do about some one that i about to the the FBI let them call then but be sure you give then all the reason you know about is wrong and tell the truth aboutt he other call so they can llo him up to see if that person is for real about what they are call them about, why because the call may be just pulling a big joke on you to get you to pay them more so they wood get the money out of you cause they are trying to scam for the money try this first cause i think it will work better trust look at my profile please and it will tell more about me in there and who i work for sometime . thankyou have a nice day .

    I almost fell for this scam too. They asked me to buy the Versa Gold software for $80 and whole bunch of shipping supplies. The funny thing about this that I don’t think I ever replied to their ad to begin with and if so it was under a different heading. Here is the full email that they sent me.

    This is for ■Teague: He did the same crap to me. He threatened me online & over the phone. He tried to use the fact that I am a single mother against me. I contacted a lawyer who set-up a meeting w/ a local FBI agent. Since I had several IM conversations documenting that I didn’t know the job was a fraud, the FBI took my info & advised me to stay in contact with them re: the matter. Teague you may want to do the same.

  111. Nick-- -- -- December 10th, 2010 9:28 am

    Hey everyone,

    I posted before during the summer when I almost fell for this and I can’t believe its still going on. These people are from Nigeria and are scamming people using fake craigslist ads. What they do is give you BS tasks to do and then you email them to the person. Then, they will ask you for a copy of a cashiers check at ur bank which they forge and use to write fake checks. DO NOT SEND THEM ANYTHING. It is a huge scam and has caused many to change their bank information. Any check they send you will be a fake and to be sure of it take it to the bank logo that is on the check and they can tell you for sure. These bastards need to go down the only way is to stop responding to their ads.

  112. Tricia-- -- -- December 15th, 2010 11:20 am

    Well I can tell that everyone has been scammed like me, I have a David, Gary and a Fred. Now they have sent me cash via western union though. They are very persitant and will not leave you alone when they want something done. I am waiting for payment today through western union and I will come back and post to this site and lt you know if I was paid. I was first contacted by David and he sent me his driver’s license picture of his daughter and so forth. His im even has the property management company on it. Well I never got paid from him and Fred the other one had disappeared for nearly 2 weeks after promising to pay me and advised me that his father had passed away in Germany. Now the last one is Gary and he has no problem being persistant either but he still will not tell me where he is from nor what company he is working for. It is so hard to find an online job that is legit so that I can make extra money. Lets stomp them out.

  113. girl-- -- -- December 16th, 2010 1:27 pm

    I also had this happen once before and once just a couple days ago. People sending me this. If its legit they will provide you with the materials and a company site. I knew it was a scam when I couldn’t do it because I didn’t have the money for it and months later the guy was still asking me to work for him. No one does that at a legit place.Plus I’d seen something on t.v. a long time ago about a lady who was caught in a mailing scam she thought was legit and this reminded me of it.

  114. Elit-- -- -- December 19th, 2010 1:20 am

    i got the same thing except i only gave my name and number and address before knowing that this was a fraud i didnt go any further to know this shit was a fake. should i contact my bank just incase or what and am i at risk.

    I just added you on my Yahoo IM list, hope to meet you online soon.

    Thanks for your interests in the PA position, I will deeply appreciate all genuine efforts to help me monitor and keep up to date with all my activities. I most very often get my hands occupied because am working with many companies both states and outside, so it is imperative for me to have a worthy assistant who can monitor and keep me up to date with my activities. As my assistant, your activities will include: Make travel arrangements and submit expenses for Attorneys Order office supplies, Running personal errands, Check Processing Filing documents, faxing, printing and typing letters Web research, Internet search skills and posting ads Quality communication etiquette skills and good organizational skills Serious sense of humor required and mandatory to work with me Ability to handle highly sensitive and confidential information Perform duties with accuracy, quality, and integrity You can only apply for this position if you own a printer and personal computer. Basic wage is $350 a weekly
    About me:
    My name is Tammie R. Afola, i have a family of 3 and i am a Realtor.

This position is home-based and flexible you can be in any location, working with me is basically about instructions and following them, my only fear is that I may come at you impromptu sometimes, I need someone who can be able to meet up with my irregular timings.There is also a very sensitive issue on trust and accountability which I believe will resolve itself as time goes on.
    This is only an introductory e-mail, as time goes on we should be able to arrange a proper meeting to get things started officially. I do have a number of things you could help me with this week if you will be available for me. This can act as a stable foundation to our working relationship.

    Here is the latest installment on the VERSA saga. It apparently sends mails to people who have posted ads in their local Craigslist. I received a 2 line e-mail stating that they needed a payroll person. When I answered the mail with questions, I got an automatic reply. It was way to soon to type something up that quickly. I am attaching it here for all of you out there to NOT GET SCAMMED.

    I don’t know exactly which ad I responded to off of Craigslist or indeed.com got me into this, but I am here too. Got suspicious because of grammar/spelling and went searching. Grateful that I did, but also very frustrated at those who would take advantage of someone who is needing a job to support his family. There are a lot of people these days looking for work not just out of some dissatisfaction with their present position but out of desperate need.

    Hello,

    I have this guy on my yahoo messinger who is lookin for a trust worthy person to send out payroll checks on a daily basisand by doing so I can earn $800 a month from home (TAX FREE) All I have to do is buy the Versacheck paper from any Walmart, Office Max, or from the Versacheck website and he will reemburse me the money I spent. I can start tomarrow he says and all I have to do is buy the check paper and western union him the recipt.
    I almost went for it but there was something not sitting right with me it seemed TOO easy and TOO good to be true. I told him that I would try to get the money for the check paper and if not he would have to wait till I got paid at the first of the month. Since then he has been tryin to push me into getting the money and getting the checks, which also sent up another (red flag)
    what’s the hurry I asked him. He tells me well so he can send me the softwear (tree by the way) and I can get started. Then all I have to do is make out 86 of these checks a day and send them UPS.
    So I decided to do some research and found this site and boy am I glad I did. When I get his name I’ll include it in my next post if needed. I hope I’m doing the right thing.

    Thanks
    Samantha

    I was minutes away from falling for this versacheck mailing scam. Everything seemed ok, account number checked out, business checked out, so i kind of put aside this guys minor grammatical errors and bought the check paper then downloaded a free check program he provided a link for. But something still wasn’;t sitting well with me, so i started digging. Ended up on this site and immediately realize i was almost scammed (and in doing so would have committed a felony… ) Applying someone elses signature to a legal document without that persons consent is illegal. And printing a company check without being contractually employed by that company is against the law to. Thankfully, no checks were printed or mailed and i kept the reciept for the paper, so i wont be out any money.
    Thank yall for this board.

  126. michael green-- -- -- January 20th, 2011 2:09 pm

  127. Samantha_Renae-- -- -- January 22nd, 2011 8:07 am

    WOW looks like I did do the right thing. Thanks ya’ll for clearin things up for me.
    I think it’s a cryin shame that people would do somethin like this with things as hard as they are and money as tight as it is now. Because it makes it harder for an honest person to get work who desparately needs it.

  128. Donovan-- -- -- January 29th, 2011 4:28 pm

    I reported it to yahoo’s mail fraud department and to the FDC but who knows weather anyone will really care enough to do anything about it. It’s very frustrating.

( why would they ask me about payoll when my ad was for construction) . yes but i have no experiance in payroll.

    service_payroll : no sorry

    Me: yea i made good money on the rigs

    oh ok. well is there somewhere online i could try to use my bank card at.

    Me: lol this is fun.

    service_payroll : Dumb sucker, are you refering to yourself as an idiot
    (he repeated this about 50 times but i deleted it before posting this on here)

    Me: see if you are going to try this scam what you need to do is send the people the equipment up front and not ask them to pay for it. it would just seem more legit that way.

    i mean really if you are not going to do it right just dont bother.

    thats he problem with you people. you were never taught that if you are going todo something do it right or not at all.

    hello are you there..

    lol guess not.

    Payroll Service is typing…
    Talking to Payroll Service

    oh well thats my entertainment for the day.
    im going to make a craigslist post about this also.

    Marie (9:47 PM): So, what is next?
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:48 PM): Sign the contract form i sent to you back to me..and did you got the materials yet? so that i can get you the software to download and we’re set for getting started.
    Marie (9:49 PM): Yes, I got the supplies and they were expensive…
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:50 PM): Okay scan the receipt to my mail…for the reimbursment after two weeks of getting started
    Marie (9:50 PM): I thought I would be reimbursed right away – I really need the money.
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:51 PM): Cool
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:51 PM): The company would pay you after two weeks of getting started
    Marie (9:51 PM): Cool? Is that really the best you can offer?
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:52 PM): Yes sure
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:52 PM): That is my slang,
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:52 PM): Can you download the software now?
    Marie (9:53 PM): What is the software I will be downloading?

    Payroll us inc Manager (9:58 PM): Versa check software gold 2011
    Payroll us inc Manager (9:59 PM):

  142. J-- -- -- March 10th, 2011 6:26 pm

    I was told to purchase Versa check software 2012, I was told I would have a salary of 1300.00 a month. Thank god I could cancel my order after I saw this. I was supposably hired for a payroll assistant. Grammer and word for word verbatem was used with a “Kathleen Gleason” from Seagrass Texas. No number given when asked. a very generic application form was sent. No W-2 for salary. Her email is Kathleengleason0809@yahoo.com

  143. Bob-- -- -- March 14th, 2011 7:13 am

    Replied to a newspaper classified ad in NY and was sucked into this scam. I have reported it to the newspaper along with a link to this scam report. They referenced Olde Florida Payroll a Mr. Charles Jextoban, and level two was from
    MISS SARAH CAMPBELL. I’m including these references so they’ll hopefully show up in a search, it wasn’t until I searched for Versa gold 2008 check printing that I found this site.
    It sucks to prey on the unemployed, but then again it sucks to prey on anyone.

  144. lori-- -- -- March 24th, 2011 9:16 am

    I got the same info and had her email me the info so I could do the research, that info lead me to this report. I am so glad it did. This is the email I sent back to her. I know it won’t do anything to slow them down but maybe she will have nightmares!!


    Wow, you Nigerians are pretty good at this scam thing. Hard to believe you would like to be know as a whole nation full of people who are excellent liars, but at least when you all die you will go to hell together!! I hope that you realize what you are trying to do to innocent people and I hope and pray that it haunts you and your children for all of eternity! Just remember that God is watching everything you do, and your soul will pay the price for your participation in this deception.

    Thanks G I found this site…. I am mad that there are these kind of low life in this planet. They post as legit job ads using other people’s old ads and lure people like me in.
    Anyway, thanks to this site and you guys that I’m on full alert. Similar story and Here is the its email content:

    “Hello,
    Thanks for your timely response, Astra Auditors & Co is a CPA-based multi-disciplinary consulting firm in United Kingdom, United States & Canada with liaison offices in London, New York and Ontario. We are a member of JHI International CPA network with 130 members worldwide in 55 countries.
    In regards to the job, you would have my Client(s)(United States) payments in form of Business checks prepared and dispatched to various employees and customers..
    The dispatchment would also require that you have knowledge on preparing shipping labels Online from fedex, UPS or DHL accounts which I would provide you with the Username and password of these shipping accounts(For now you would NOT be required to prepare shipping labels, all shipping labels will be sent to you via email). However, this would also require the following;
    1)That you have a printer to print out the shipping labels.
    2)That would have to purchase envelopes where the checks would be placed and shipping labels attached.
    3)That you prepare and drop off payments at nearest the FedEx, UPS or DHL offices as instructed.

    OR
    You could as well pick up Airway Bills at the any courier office(FedEx or UPS) as instructed by me to make your work easier.

    For you to get started, you have to purchase the “versa check software gold version” from any office supply store nearest to you.

    Note: there is reimbursement for any materials purchased.

    Materials include:
    *Blank Business Check Refills
    *MICR Ink For Inkjet Printers
    *MICR Toner For Laser Printers

    As soon as you have the materials to get started, go ahead and download the software so we can begin the training.
    You would be required to make yourself available online before 3pm local time Monday-Friday for instructions because most FedEx, DHL and UPS offices close around 6pm for drop off. Assignments will be issued on or before 1pm your local time.

    I’ve read all of the scams listed on this website and was surprised at how many their are. They seem to change their emails and names, yet it is possible that some are the same person. I am a real accountant looking for work and was nearly scammed by this one on Odesk. Claiming to be affiliated with a textile company in the UK, I responded thinking that it was a legitimate job. They replied through a recruiter, sending me a job description. So far everything seemed all right. I went to the website and looked. It said they were building the web. Okay, that is possible. But as I searched on google I found many other ads run on other job search engines. I researched the real company that had a different name, yet the information he listed in the email matched with their company mission statement. Okay. Then he began requesting, firmly I’d say, for me to purchase a printer, software and checks and that there would be 1,970 checks issued a month. Yet, he could not do the math. Who can issue that many checks a month part time? And how does the ordering of 750 checks even cover the needs for the month. I wasn’t going to do anything until I had paperwork from the company stating that I was hired (on their stationery) and what the salary would be and the date and signed by him. I requested a signature card from the bank with their account number on it. I will not issue checks until my signature is added to their bank account. That is standard business procedure. I asked for a phone number in the United States, because it was obvious the emails were coming from California. I requested a phone interview. I didn not hear back from him and he was removed from the website. But, he has posted ads on many websites claiming to be from Beris Textiles. There are many websites listed that are filled with similar scams. I found multiple scams with textile company names.

    They are running a similar scam on the Chicago Reader

    The guy’s name is smithjohn2008@rocketmail.com, from Albany Park in Chicago

    I mean rocketmail? If you’re a company why not use a real .com name? I can see using a rocketmail address for the first contact, ’cause you’re liable to get spammed to death, but this is ludicrous.

    Unemployed people have enough problems without getting your hope up

    Subject: Payroll Specialist Position – Extremely Interested!

    Good afternoon,

    I am EXTREMELY interested in this position. I am transitioning out of my job into work that has more telecommuting options. I think I would be a good candidate for this position because:

    I have extensive experience with computers and publishing.
    I have my own home office with quality equipment to handle the job (I can provide printing samples).
    I have done side work creating marketing materials, brochures, etc. so, checks would be very easy for me.
    I also majored in mathematics and have handled many payroll, accounting, A/R, A/P, duties through work experience so I am very good with numbers.
    I have provided writing and editing services to individuals and businesses with the objective to eliminate typing/typographical errors, number flaws, and information discrepancies.

    Please consider me for this position. My resume is attached.

    Thank you.

    I just received the same offer as those listed on here. My contact was Christopher Clemons with Payroll Printing, Inc. After asking about their website I was told it was “under construction” and when asking about being paid I was told I would be an “employee” and they would take care of the taxes. Being an accountant for 15 years I questioned him about not needing a tax ID number. He became defensive and basically said “do you want to work for this company or not”. I basically didn’t answer him again. I am going to try and find out more so I can report him.

    Here is information on the same messages i have received that you all have also. I have also gained the ip address to a proxy he was using. I have already reported this to the IRS for payments under the table, however I’m not satisfied with that. Infact, I have every intention to submit the full conversation to abuse@megamailservers.com to have his email removed and to look into his ip address information a bit more thoroughly. If you would like to read the conversation information then this is for your pleasure.

    (my email address is not a personal address this is not a way of contacting me as it is a dummy account)

  173. bre-- -- -- August 8th, 2014 1:29 pm

    So i just had an encounter with a Scam Artist
    Named Brad Scott.
    He wanted me to purchase Versa Check Gold and buy the business check forms.
    I never purchased Versa Check Gold. So he decided to email me the checks and just have me print them. He never asked me to set up a USPS account but he did want me to print the checks and send them via USPS. He would also send the labels. Im sure with a fake USPS account.
    I did it one time and he was very pushy. He would text and email me constantly asking did i drop it off.
    Then he sent me a Western Union for 100.
    After that he begin to get very annoying.
    He text me multiple times in an hour back to back.
    When i responded he told me he sent me a Money Gram for 1500 dollars and needed me to pick it up. 150 was for me and the rest should be sent to a “charity”.
    Thats when i knew this was a scam because he does not know me and he is sending me money of that large amount.
    I asked what charity. He sent me the information for the Charity and it was located in Nigeria. I figured it was a scam and stop replying and never picked up the money from the money gram.
    I tried to file a police report but because i was not scammed i could not file a report. The scam artist still sends me IM messages telling me it is not a scam.
    Be aware because this is illegal and printing false checks are illegal.
    you are helping steal money from other people accounts by sending these fake checks.
