MLD MLD Luxury You're the "Middle Man", Collecting fake payments for supposed goods and sending them, minus a 5% commission, to the company. Houston, Texas
I have copied text from the original article below:
This fake job scam is targeting Australians. The victim will be directed to process funds through their own bank account for a commission of five percent and then to transfer the remainder of the funds to the scammer via Western Union. The original transfer will, of course be fraudulent and when the victims' bank identifies the fraud the victim will be left to pay the entire amount back to the bank. There is also a possibility the victim may face police questioning.
I have been baiting this scammer using a safely anonymous and thoroughly fake identity. This scammer sent this initial scam email with a throw-away email address, in this case email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org. He quickly replied to my message with an email address from a fake email@example.com I have asked our talented site killers over at our sister site 419eater.com to euthanize this fraudulent domain. The scammers' follow up emails describes how this fraud is played out.
