Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

this is the first letter sent to me to help him in his business

My name is Kelly Richard and I am an artist. I saw your advert on the web for employment. I live in United Kingdom, with my two kids, four cats, one dog and the love of my life. It is definitely a full house. I have been doing artwork since I was a small child. That gives me about 23 years of experience. I majored in art in high school and took a few college art courses. Most of my work is done in either pencil or airbrush mixed with color pencils.

I have recently added designing and creating artwork on the computer. I have been selling my art works for the last 3 years and have had my work featured on trading cards, prints and in magazines. I have sold in galleries and to private collectors from all around the world. I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my art works to Americans, they are always offering to pay with a US MONEY ORDER, which is difficult for me to cash here in United Kingdom.

I am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for me as a partime worker and i will be willing to pay 10% for every transaction,which wouldnt affect your present state of work,someone who would help me recieve payments from my customers in the states. I mean someone that is responsible and reliable,cause the cost of coming to the state and getting payments is very expensive, I am working on setting up a branch in the states,so for now i need a representative in the united states who will be handling the payment aspect.

These payments are in money order and they would come to you in your name, so all you need do is cash the money order deduct your percentage and wire the rest back. But the problem I have is trust, but I have my way of getting anyone that gets away with our money, I mean the FBI branch in Washington gets involved.

It wouldn't cost you any amount. You are to receive payments which will be sent to you by fedex or usps from my business patners, which would come in form of a money order then you are to cash it and send the cash to me via money gram money transfer, all transfer fees should be deducted from the money you are sending.

If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as possible to know if you are interested because Job commences the moment I open a file for you on your name and info.

The second response is this and I want to know if this is legite:

Am pleased to hear from you and we can just keep communicating via email and phone and that will do. If you don't have a means to get any of your ID scanned yet then just fill the employment form and send back to me asap but ensure to send the scanned ID before the first assignment commence. The job does not entail much, all you would be doing is receiving these payments in form of Money Orders, which would be coming from some clienteles of mine in France via Fedex but will be a US Legal Tender Money Order and not foreign money order so when you get these US money orders all you have to do is have them cashed at your bank and deduct your share ( 10% ) and wire the rest down to me here in england or anywhere our correspondent is in the world via ( MoneyGram Money Transfer).

All fees of the money gram transfer should be deducted from my own part of the money and ensure to have your full percentage of the money. I would have loved to send my website to you but due to my new branch office that is under construction in the US I need to rebuild my website for more information and new painted art works that I am still working on. I will be needing some proof of Identity, so I have attached an Employment form for you to fill and send back to me via email, my phone number in the UK is 44-794-063-0744 in case you will be needing to call me at anytime.

Well you would be receiving a minimum of $4000 and you are meant to take out 10% from the funds you recieve and then forward the remaing balance to our company via moneygram. You would be receiving $4000-$5000 once or twice in a week depending on how the business grows but it's good that business is up and up now so payment should possibly arrive twice in a week so you are meant to deduct 10% out of every money you recieve, your earnings will be dependent on the payments from clienteles which is 10% multiplied by the number of payments that gets to you.

I would need a copy of your scanned ID sent to me via email for our records so kindly write back if you are still interested so that I can attached the employment form and send to you. ID could be your driver's licence, school ID, work ID or any form of ID just for identification so I don't have anything to do with your SS.

The first payment should arrive by ending of this week or early nextweek so you need to expedite action to know if you will be employed or not because I have just 1 person on my list and I need one more which could be you so hurry up and reply asap.Hope to hear from you soon.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Amazing how many "artists" there are in the U.K. who send out the same email

AUTHOR: Giselle - (U.S.A.)

Yep, you can find this identical email posted all over web. The name is often different though but its still the same, i.e. My name is so and so and I am an artist. I have 3 kids, 4 cats, etc etc. The bottom line is they are trying to get you to wire them money. This is a very common scam that people continue to fall for. I can't imagine why though,

Anyway, anyone interested in how this scam works can simply call their local bank and/or just search on the web for " money order scam". There is an abundance of info out there and lots of stories about people falling for variations of this scam.
