BEWARE: A business called Altro Tempo, supposedly in the Seybold Building, 36 NE 1st Street, Suite 304, Miami, FL 33132 – is using checks supposedly drawn off the First Bank of Miami at the address: 235 S.E. 1st Street, Miami, FL 33131 - this business is listed throughout the internet. These checks are illegal, counterfeit, whatever – they will bounce on your account. This is a typical con artist game where they send you the check, have you deposit it, and then have you purchase and mail things for them supposedly with the money from the check. However, it takes a couple weeks sometimes for such a check to clear, and in the meantime you are out the money. BEWARE!!!! The scammer is using the name Paul Smith, address at 11900 Ferina Street, Norwalk, CA 90650. Yet, the check is supposedly signed by someone named John Wood and drawn on a Miami bank. This scammer runs an ad asking for a personal assistant, or contacts you directly because you ran an ad he saw - then states he is not in the state or country at this time and needs you – a total stranger – to purchase things for him and mail them to help him with his business. BEWARE!!! This is a scam. The check will look real, but it is either stolen or a forgery or a fake account that never existed. BEWARE!!! He uses this bank name and address for this scam: First Bank of Miami at the address: 235 S.E. 1st Street, Miami, FL 33131. Don't get sucked in! -- Or better yet, contact him and ask if you can work for him, then give him a major run around and screw with him. You know - the check didn't arrive, or I bought the stuff and thought I was suppose to send it to the bank, or I bought the stuff and sent it to (then name a wrong address a few blocks from his phony addresses), and keep it going as long as you can. That's what I do - great entertainment, especially when you get a numb nut who really believes his own crap at scamming.
