Here’s a recent scam job offer I received, one of many. Better written than usual, but the same tagline – ‘Payment Processing‘ (aka ‘Transaction Processing Agent‘ etc). This scam involves sending the victim a large check, then asking him to deduct a commission (usually 5-15%) and then to send the rest on to a third party, usually by money order, or our good friends at Western ‘The Scammers Best Friend’ Union.
The hit comes when the original check bounces. This may take up to three weeks, by which time many more checks may have been ‘processed’.
Just because your bank accepts a check, doesnt mean it’s good – it just means that until it has cleared, it’s good.
And it’s no use crying to the bank – it’s YOUR money that you’re sending, not theirs and if that means you own the bank that money – well, you owe the bank that money.
There’s also another nasty aspect to this scam – the victim may (unknowingly) be taking part in money laundering activities to terrorist organizations, crime syndicates etc. and the cops may want to know why you’re helping them!

I would like to get right to it and let you know that this program is only for serious-minded marketers who believe in taking action and making things happen…
But Please: Understand that most marketers out there jump-around from one thing to the next and treat this business as a game. Most out there are not serious and have no “real” intention of ever really making any kind of difference in their lives.
Most people also believe they can “make it” in this business “on their own” and it seems those people continue to fail over-and-over again. Since we cannot possibly work directly with every single person out there, this program is “limited” and only for serious minded individuals in the globe.
