Didn't your mother school ya, OP?
I know it's a scam R1. I just can't figure out what the scam is.
Smuggling. And guess who gets caught holding the bag?
Actually, probably just collecting information
It's likely a wire transfer scam. You get a "check" from the company and are expected to wire money from your own account in the amount of that check to an overseas account. The check bounces and you're out the money you wired.
GOT MINE TODAY MAKE IT AT LEAST MORE OF A CHALLENGE. WAKE UP!!
What R5 said.
any job offer starting with Good Day is suspect.
Seems legit to me-as long as you possess daytime contact dial number.
I answered an add for a secert shopper. Even got the check- over $2,500. They said I'd have to cash the check (into my account) and wire the money and fill out a form about my experience. I got to keep $100 and wire the rest...well...that's it.
I still have the check.
Anyone know if I cash it at a Check Cashing place, what would happen? Could I keep the money?
scam - see R5, money laundering and you are the chump that gets ripped off in the process
I saw one of those on judge Judy tv show where the person wasn't able to cash the check after she worked for the secret shopper company, so gave the check to a family member. Who in turn gave cash for the value of the check, when the second person deposited the check to her account, it obiously bounced, and she was charged by the bank for the amo.unt, and ofcourse the first person wouldn't return the cash... Judy Judy ftw I just got my email today for this scam, this is the second or third one in a few months
Take it to the bank on the check and see if they will cash it. If you take it to your bank they may cash it and charge it back to your account when it bounces and charge you the bounce fee.
Is Warsaw in Nigeria?

You're kidding right? You must know how that scam works by now. When you cash the check and keep just 100 and wire the rest, ten days later it bounces and your bank then removes the balance from your account (for which you got to keep only 100). It's a very old scam that plays off the time it takes for an international check to bounce.
Ha I remember when the dipshit teen mom Farrah fell for that scam. Hers was over her shitty Dodge Neon that she was inexplicable selling for 8 k. Some guy said he wanted to buy it and would she ship it to him, he sent her 8000 and asked her to wire back 3000 for some reason only Farrah would fall for, and then his check bounced and he got 3000 from her.
I got it and they are registered with the better business bureau. So I'm gonna try it out.
What did you get r17? Are you sure about the BBB affiliation? I have heard lately that the BBB is all about money and grift. Be careful and let us know how it goes.
This reminds me, I haven't watched "Locked up abroad" in a while.
You don't have to do anything to register for the BBB, except pay their exorbitant fee.
There seems to be a phone version of this scam. I received a call from a 732 exchange. It was someone with a heavy Indian accent looking for someone with mobile IT skills to fill a position. When I pressed him about the position, he reluctantly said it was with verison and that I would have to sign a contract with his firm, which he wouldn't identify. It sounded like he was calling from a call center -- you could hear other voices in the background.
My partner almost got scammed on craigslist. We were looking for a puppy, and this guy said that he had purebred bulldog puppies, and he only wanted money for shipping ($300 a puppy). He only wanted the puppies to go to a good home, he said. He wanted the money wired to him, then he would ship them (red flag). I emailed him, and said that I thought they would make a nice soft rug, and he said 'great, wire the money and I will ship them '. It amazes me people fall for this.
Just got the transnational email & it sure is fishy. Let's see, why would a Poland based company send goods to the U.S. for them to be reposted out to a European address? The "I haven't seen locked up abroad lately" comment is funny as hell,& might b true! Haha, yeah I'm gonna get right on that job opp.....don't think so. Need to brush up on the scam attempts. "You need to pull nothing out of your own pocket..... Except bail money!!!!
Its an email hacking scam they got me already. They go on sites like snag a job where your resume is viewable and they pray on people who need a job because they are the ones likely to open the email not people who already have a job
Just got it today
Please from my own dreadful experience, do not fall for this scam from Nigeria. The FBI have been trying to track the dirty low down con artist. I know I was scammed out of $3000.00.
Please pass information to the bank or FBI.
I've seen versions of this scam email. The tip-off is poorly written English; DL's grammar troll would have a heart attack.
I received the job offer this morning. I suspect that it is an illegal import scam or drug smuggling scam. They ship to your home...you forward the package. All is great until the drug dogs hit on the package during shipping. Busted.
OMG! Now you tell me, OP!
I sent them a cashier's check for $15,000 as my "signing bonus."
I'm still waiting for the company rep to show up with my training manual and company BMW.
I received the same email today and contacted my local Better Business Burea who had received a lot of complaints about this company. I have since deleted the email and will not reply to any future emails from this company.
yeah i got this message but i did not understand anything about it.
The other thing is this: They purchase electronic equipment with stolen credit card numbers, get the shit sent to your address (because they need an American address), and you turn around and remail it to Poland. Finally, the cops catch up to you and you have to explain it. This particular scam was on 60 minutes years ago.
You could always turn the tables. I love stringing them along, then F-ing them in the ass. It's called Scambaiting.
One guy got so mad when I told him I knew it was a scam and wasted all his time he said he was going to come to my house and kill me.
Well bub, I used a fake IP to create a fake email account. Good luck with that. You cant even afford the ticket over here anyway.
Oh, but I am not the only one in on this fun. The website listed below has examples of scammers who got tricked by their prey to send their photo. Then it gets posted.
I'm just wondering what percentage of recipients have a CV, have it online, or know what one is.
I have a CV but I would not post it online. My employer here in the states required it.
You are right though, its more of a European thing. Most people in America use a resume.
[quote] . I emailed him, and said that I thought they would make a nice soft rug, and he said 'great, wire the money and I will ship them '. It amazes me people fall for this.
I got it and signed up they sent my first in the mail it contains wat it said was going to be in it on the website I'm going to go through with it and see if it s a scam or not
R37, Even my Bank of America had a sign on the outside of the door warning customers about payments from strangers in foreign countries; be very careful as you're in too deep already.
Anyone with an actual CV online who falls for something like this ought to repeat 7th grade.
So I just received the ipod touch and since they are scammin ppl should I jus enjoy MY new ipod????
Well you certainly shouldn't ship to where the scammers said to, R40.
I'd notify your internet provider and local law enforcement's fraud unit. If the scammers contact you looking for the ipod, tell them you were told it was purchased with a stolen credit card number. That should shut them up.
Bear in mind that in all likelihood it really was bought with a stolen card number. You may need to return the item eventually and/or explain the whole thing.
[quote]So I just received the ipod touch and since they are scammin ppl should I jus enjoy MY new ipod????
You in danger, girl!
Well this is the funny part about it they aren't sending a check they are using western union the don't have my credit information or my social so they can't try anything and I saved all emails just in case law enforcement does try to come get me
R38 I didn't give NY information like social or any of that and they are sending me a check either its coming through western union lol so they could try
Scam companies always use Western Union; clear sign that they aren't legit. Harder to trace, that's why.
R44, Don't even think of cashing that check at your local bank.
Its coming thru western union not through a check typo
R47, Still how will you cash it?
Um, R48? Western Union is a cash service. Sender pays with cash and the amount they send is picked up as cash on the other end.
Right r49 thank u so its sounds legit to me even if it isn't I won't be put in jail I saved all messages so it will be worth it
it's a scam trust i know they will not pay you so you will have worked for free they got me already i have been waiting to get paid but they have failed to do so and they stopped sending me tickets lol i felt so stupid but like they say if it sounds to good to b true it is
R51 what method of payment did u use
r51 maybe you should take the money they're sending you and buy a "." button and a shift key.
yes it is a scam, all looks legit even up to the paper work trail but they dont pay you and when its time to be paid after all the shipping plus bonus they delete ur posts.
That's funny....I got that recently to...actually about a few mins ago at 11:30pm...A little late for any business to be contacting me. But I'm assuming it's a scam, there's definitely something weird going on if other people don't use the technique of selling things overseas for profit...probably some law interferes with it....
The newer I phones cost around 500-799$ when they came out in Japan or china...imagine buying the same 99$ I phones here and making a good 100$ profit if you wanted to...
Doesn't ebay ship overseas?
I got this today and knew it was junk when they referred to them as Apple gadgets so I clicked reply all to get all of the email addresses to block. If you don't do reply all and just select junk mail you will miss one address that is coming up as a blind email address. Do reply all then cut the "TO" addresses bring up junk mail options and select blocked senders and add them one at a time. The junk option sometimes wont read them one if you try to do both in Outlook.
My friend Julie says you'd be an absolute fool if you didn't jump at the opportunity to work for this company.
If they offer to pay you through paypal then it is legit. I did this type of work for about 6 months. They send you item to your home through UPS or FedEx then you ship them to where they need to go
This is what I believe this to be...
There are several web sites that buy and sell stolen credit card numbers. I believe this company Transnational is buying these stolen credit card numbers and then quickly charging expensive re-sellable electronics to these cards, but they are using USA shipping points. Then when you receive the "package" you will forward it to another destination. It's called "scrambling shipments"
