I received the same as above.  First I was sent text to edit and send back and I would receive $5 for each kb.  I edited $170 worth of text.  They then sent me an email telling me I had to take a 2 month break from editing text because they needed Accounts Receivable people in my area to accept payments on their behalf.

My first payment was FedEx'd to me and I rcv'e it last night.  I decided to do a little research before depositing this personal check for $4870.00 into my checking account.  The check was from a couple in Texas and was drawn on a Wells Fargo bank in TX.  I looked on www.whitepages.com and the name and address on the check was legit.  I then decided to go to the FedEx website and look up the tracking number to see the route this check had taken.  Funny thing is it was "picked up" in Illinois?!?  Was the person whose check this was in Illinois? perhaps on business and sent the check from there?  Or were these checks stolen?  I attempted to call the phone number of the person the check belonged to and it is constantly busy with obviously no call waiting...who doesn't have call waiting these days?  Especially someone who is wealthy enought to write a check for this large an amount for who knows what good or services?!?  And why can't "Dating Services" clients western union the monies to them?  Why have me as a middle man?  What if I western union the monies to Dating Service (minus my commission of course)...and then the people who paid don't get the goods or services they were promised?  Are they going to come after me because they were instructed to mail their payment to me?

Being a single parent I was looking forward to the commission I would be able to make doing this job....however, I do not want to get involved in a scam and was glad I came across this website.  I decided I am NOT going to deposit the check into my account and I will continue to try to get ahold of the people whose check it is or I will just mail it back to them with "VOID" written on it.

Although I have not yet put my finger on exactly what kind of scam this is...if it sounds too good to be true....it probably is!

Type of scam.

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

POSTED: Tuesday, October 06, 2009

    If I'm reading this right, you were sent a large check and you're supposed to take out your comission and send the balance to someone else via Western Union??

    If that's the case, then the scam is obvious.   The check is phony, but good enough to pass initial inspection at your bank.  This means that after you deposit it, it may be a week before the check makes its way through the system and comes back phony (after which, you'll be required to reimburse the bank).   In the meantime, you've sent good money to someone else via Western Union, which is basically an untraceable cash transaction.   The scammer gets your cash, and you're left holding the bag for the bogus check that you deposited in your account.

   You were right not to deposit the check.   I would just shred it and be done with it.
