James D Grace
This scam is a little different.
What is being suggested is that you receive cashier’s checks and other payments into your bank account. You take a commission and then send the money onwards by Western Union to these people.
However, what this really is is a way of cheating you. There are two things that might be happening.
1) The money that is sent to your account is in fact stolen. Perhaps from phishing expeditions, where they have got access to someone else’s account. So this is money laundering. Highly illegal.
2) The cashier’s checks themselves are fake. Often a bank will add the money to your account before it has really cleared: you then send on the money, thinking you have made a profit, but then 6 weeks later your bank comes back and says, well, the check didn’t clear. So now you have to repay the money.
What? You sent it to someone by Western Union? So what, we still want our money back.
Ignore the whole thing.

I had this experience and the check came to me. It was nothing about being employed. It was some guy named david MacClurkin that met me thru match.com. We talked awhile and he told me he lived in NY but had to travel to UK for his business site. When I got the check I took pictures of it and called the credit union it was drawn on. They told me it was a fake. I turned it and him into the authorities and I hope he gets his due coming to him. Thank god I am smart enough to have checked this out first. What a scam. Be careful.

Good thing I did not fall for this one Thank "God" I did receive the checks but did not fall to hard for this man. I pray he is convicted for his actions. I will always remember this scam. His name is Jamesdgrace or Jamesgodgrace. Says he from Austin TX there are twenty thousand names by the name James Williams

He is now using the name Peter Cook. He says he works for Foster Farms chicken, and they need someone to put an advertisement on their car. He said they'll pay $450 a week as rent to use your car. He told me he would fedex a check for $4000 and to take my $450 out. He sent me a yahoo message that had the name jamesdgrace on it, so I googled it and found this site. I emailed him and told him to leave me alone, and he asked me for my checking account to directly deposit the money. I didn't respond, and I have not heard from him.
