My Sister in Law did it for a little while and it seemed straightforward but always seemed hinky to me.

Just seemed suspicious as it showed up in my email and not in the regular mail. I can't help but wonder if they will eventually ask for my bank account info to direct deposit the money…

There are legit companies that do this sort of stuff. Never heard of one recruiting via random emails though!

I've been in touch with that one but via the bit I do with the Royal Mail not a random email. I wasn't mobile enough for their purposes but had no troubles with them.

I got one in the mail with a $3,000 check that I was supposed to cash and send to some bloke in canada via western union and complete the entire thing in 24 hours. my cut $150.00 USD minus all the money and overdrafts that came from sending it.

I'm not quite that stupid, but it was the best written scam letter I ever got. Sent it on to the atourney generals office here for them to forward to whoever should see it the most…

Only $300 USD – can I send you mine?

The record so far for me is 8 offers in one day and up to $900 USD a go grin

Strange thing is I have no work permit for the US – do you think they can organise that for me and a few friends…
