I recently have been applying for job offers and CraigsList was one of the major sites I would search on. However, I was getting mostly bogus, scam replies. I recived three in all. I brushed the other two off as okay they got me, but the third had gone too far. 

These people are the contact participants on CraigsList through their emails: Kimberly Nina, Samson Lakeson, and Phillip Gone. They mostly use job positions titled: Cleaners Needed Urgent, Cleaning, and CRS Needed. I guess they figure these are the vulnerable desperate people.

They advertise their stories of how successful they are in business and why they need help.
The first scammer Phillip Gone stated, "I'm Phillip Gone me and my family are relocating to the city from Spain. We are coming there to do some contract basis with my research for a Oil company {Shell Oil} as I work presently with the shell oil here in Spain as a research contractor manager and we are relocating to the USA for 3 years on my research and arrangements have been made with my wife uncle who has helped us to buy a house before he passed away last week, so I need someone who can work as a good housekeeper. I will be offering you $400 a week, I will be needing your services for three hours at any suitable time of yours. Mondays through Fridays also I need to get you informed that I have a financier in the state who will be handling payment for your services."

A later email stated I had the job, but that additional info was needed to make arrangements. The financier was going to send me a check and I had to deduct my first service fee and help to send out the rest of the money to their Art Seller who is to deliver some art to their apartment. He states, "I would have instructed my finacier to issue out the art payment to the Art Seller but our financier could only issue out a check/money order to one person."

The second scam with Samson Lakeson sounded pretty much like the first so my husband and I quickly disregauarded further contact and communication with them. The third scam came slightly different.

The CRS-Customer Service Rep job scam offer included: Running business errands; Mailing and receiving of packages and letters; Dealing with people at all levels across a multicultural environment; Accounts payable; Also I would be doing some shopping for them. The pay is $400 a week reguardless of hours worked, but they envisage not more than 12 hours in any week. Kimberly Nina states, "I need your services because I am consytantly out of town. I buy companies that have financial difficulties an I am trying to start an Art Gallery. I will meet up with you when I return and then we can talk about the possibility of making this longterm. Work out your time schedule and fit it to mine. Funds will be made available to you in form of a check and it will be issued to you including your first week payment $400, am going to email the list of items to get as soon as I compile them all but it will be better to wait till you get the fund before I give you the list."

A later email form Kimberly Nina states, "Hello, You have been accepted as our customer service rep in your area."

Early one morning out the blue, fed ex pulled up at my house dropping off an envelope. In the envelope only, was a check made out to me for the amount of $2,900. I did not know right off where it had come from. I wanted to believe it was a random winning from a sweepstakes drawing. The check was from: Jamison California Market Center, in Los Angeles, CA, from the Bank Of The West, in Lodi, CA. Turns out the account number on the check was an active account, but trying to deposit the check into my account, threw up red flags. I decided to call Jamison California Market Center, and after speaking with them, I ripped the check up. FRAUD-STOLEN IDENTITY!!!!! 

Later that day, checking my email, heres Kimberly Nina stating, "Good News, The payment will be delivered early today possibly before 10am, via Fed Ex. Once it has been delivered, kindly take the check to your bank and have it cashed instantly or deposit it into your bank account and withdrawn the funds immediately. You will deduct $400 which is your fee for the first assignment. Once the first is completed you will get another pay to start the 2nd. I want you send the rest funds to the other secret customer and remember to make record of all the activities in the western union location. Send the rest of the money today to: Receiver's Name: Bobbi Autry 7780 SE Uglow Dallas, Oregon 97338.

I was furious! I felt very used! I would have gotten in trouble for this. I taped the check, and I have it for my records. Kimberly Nina tried contacting me afterwards a couple of times asking to please update them on the progress and status of the check. After I gave her/he some words, they havn't contacted me since. October 15, 2011.

Recieved an almost exact job offer from this person(s)

AUTHOR: Shafer324 - (United States of America)

On October 2 2011 I was searching desperately for a job, and went to Craigslist. I have basically only Customer Service skills so when i spotted an add for CSR I looked at it directly. I don't remember exactly what the add said, other than it outlined the basics of a cashier/csr and asked for my resume to be sent to the listed email.

I sent an email/cover letter with my resume attached outlining my skills and such. I got an email back explaining in extremely bad grammar, that this company Perry Smith Management was basically a Secret Shopper company. At the end he requested that I send my contact info address/city/zip and occupation and age. By this point I was a little suspicious already, mainly due to the fact that the email address that responded was not the same address I sent my resume to.

Over the course of the next few emails from this 'Perry Smith' my suspicions were confirmed. First, i was told I had the job, again in the worst grammar I've ever encountered when dealing with management, and that instead of having to fill out the necessary tax and basic employement paperwork that comes with every job, I would not have to worry about that till a later date.

Next email said my first assignment was picked and the check was on the way. My assignment, funny enough, was to secret shop a western union at a local convenience chain in my town. Funny, ironic, and this scams ultimate undoing. I had just finished almost two years of working for that very same company, and the store I was to 'secret shop' was the brand new one right next door to my house, and I knew it didn't have a western union. I also knew, through my time working with that company and having to go thru western union training, that western union has it's own personal secret shoppers.

I played along, via email, in hopes to get more concrete info. Alas, All I have is another alias. Perry Smith Management. I contacted the local police, didn't even attempt to cash the check. Tried to put in a complaint to the better business bureau, using all the various address that came on the package thru the mail, the various names and the bank account used. and the fact that I was to send this check to the very same person mentioned in the above report: Bobbi Autry of Dallas, OR.

When I informed this Perry Smith (which, by the way, he has a linkdin profile... Either it's a fake profile, or this scam artist went browsing and saw that this person seemed like a perfect business man to impersonate) that I knew the whole thing is a scam and to leave me alone, he tried to threaten my by claiming he would call the police on me.

I think i still have all the various printed off emails between me and this person and the check and it's envelope. I decided to save it in case I had found somebody that could thru what little I had help prosecute or track this person down. When i consulted the police about it, all they could tell me was that if anyone else had been duped, when they cashed the check, it would have gone thru, but then bounced after everything was said and done and the poor victim would be left having to pay that much and this con man would be two thousand dollars richer.

This unfortunately, is not only fraud, identity theft and such, but also a very simple form of money laundering using Western union.
