I'm Rev. Paul Badmus from England. We are looking for Representatives
in the United States for a part-time job offer, and we are willing to
pay you $400-$800 per week (depending on how fast you work) We are an
Orphanage Home Located in Winsford, Cheshire, and we have people and
Organisations that wants to make donation to us after we have made an
appeal to them.We help the less priviledge (In Africa and other
Underdeveloped countries) with class programs, Medical Programs, Famine
Feed, Educational Programs (TEP) and more. So we need representatives
in the United states who would assist us in recieving these Donations
and we are going to pay you 10% of every donation you recieve. These
Donation come in checks or money orders, And it would be mailed to you
by our donors to you location through UPS or FEDEX , So all you just
have to do is for you to receive the check then cash it ....After
cashing the check you are to take 10% of the money and send the balance
to us through Western Union Money Transfer.
The reason why we
are in need of people in the United states to help us cash these checks
is that, the checks do take us 21-30 days for it to be cashed here in
the Uk, But it does not take that much time for it to be cashed in the
US since its a Us money, We are also using it as a means to help people
who needs extra money to support there income, Because we do pay 25% as
tax on any check we receive in the Uk, So we decided to make the
transaction faster and use it to help people. Here is our
link:http://www.corafrica.org .The only problem we have is trusting you
with our money. Though anyone who tries to runaway with our money would
be reported. So can we trust you with the Orphans Donations?
If interested please reply to this email with the Informations Below (email@example.com)
1. Your Names (Which will be on the check)
2. Your Address, Zip code, state. (Where the check would be sent)
3. Your Home and cellphone Number (To Contact You)

Scammers never use their real
They frequently take on the identity of real people to help make themselves and their scam appear legitimate.
This is just a small sampling of the
many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at
headquarters. It is 100% pure B.S. Purity Guaranteed!
There are many different types of 419 scam (examples)
but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary /
low-interest loan, lottery prize,
bargain gold dust / diamonds,
work visa, etc.) in return
for a small 'fee' or some kind of remittance. Of course, there is no
fortune, no job, no loan, no prize to be had. It's just a ploy to get
willingly send them money.
