    Talking Mr.Edward Wong wants me to cash some checks..

    Howdy..

    Well this just arrived in my gmail account, and it appears that a Mr Wong would like for me to cash some checks for him, i deposit into my bank account, take out my percentage, then send the rest direct to him..

    I read a similar story ages ago where a lady got caught up in this type of scam, and nearly got prison time for fraud.

    But they let her go as she was a genuine victim thinking it was an legit online company, and the FBI was able to track the Big Fish and lay charges as he was in U.S.A lol..

    anyhow enjoy.!

    cheers
    acidtone..

    Wotcher mate!

    Tell him that due to recent commitments in a real estate deal, you are not capable of handling more than $200,000 per month.................as this would obviously be below his requirements, you feel that you must, in all honesty, decline his offer. He should feel free to contact you at a later date.

    I do like to go with a 10/0 shark hook


    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Good post Acidtone

    "Today - Tonight"(australian current affairs show) showed the story today with 4 woman who have been scammed by this method up to the point of them getting the several thousand the story talks about and then they get phone calls from Australian Govt securities and the bank warning them to stop transactions and return all the money to the bank.
    Some have been warned they may be charged over it after investigations to how much money they transfered.
    ITS MONEY LAUNDERING.

    The show has over a million viewers so maybe they got the message out to a good deal of people today.

    (Cheers out to all the originals of the board - I've been watching and still learning)
