    Good day,
    I am Mark Austin , a paint artist based in U.K.
    Your email address was requested from the British Chamber of Commerce
    so I decided to contact you regarding an open job position.

    Since 1994, we have been doing business as a uk midlands based gallery,
    we sell and auction paintings and other art works.
    In the recent years, customers have referred us to other potential
    clients as well, this resulted in recent increased demand for our artworks and
    supplies,We have been receiving orders from North America, Europe And Australia .
    These are areas the gallery classified as outside our gallery's reach

    For this reason we decided to employ a representative who can take care
    of payment from such out-of reach sales on our behalf.

    After agreeing on price and shipping, customers want to pay with
    American Money Orders or Credit Card , which is hard for us to process here in

    candidate in the United States, who will help us receive and cash the
    Money Orders at a substantial percentage after which the fund will be
    sent to me here in UK or any of our regional offices via transfer.

    will not affect your present work, the simple tasks can easily be performed
    at your convenience.What I need from you is utmost honesty, trust, steady communication
    and access to the internet.

    Your salary is $1400.00 Monthly.

    10% commission.

    In agreement, Kindly send me the details below so i can provide more
    information, from which you will start receiving payments earnestly.

    #Your full home address(p.o box not applicable),

    Nope, didn't apply for this job, didn't solicit this offer.. It's a Nigerian scan via England. But I've never seen it done in this form before.

    Absolutely not if you go to this companies web site you'll see someone has already falsely is using their name to market themselves.

    This store may not be in existence, one thing you could do is search this store's name in a public telephone and address locater and if this store

    really does exist phone them directly to do a background check.......more than likely its a scam.

    If I remember correctly there was a similar scam being spread around via e-mail not too long ago.

    Mrs. Jones,

    It sounds suspicious. I would never provide all that personal information to any stranger. The fact that it from overseas is suspicious in itself. Trash it.

    Even if you go to these local 'job fairs' in the US, be careful what personal information you are giving out. Maybe you should take some personal information off the resume, or better yet, have two resumes. One with just a name, telephone number and e-mail and then have another with your address as well. I would only give the one with my address to an employer in an actual building where I am going on an interview. As far as people getting your e-mail: once you have provided it to enough people somehow it gets out there and you don't know who has it.

    I wish you the best of success.

    Ri-i-i-i-i-ght...that technology is just so much more advanced than anything those limey Brits have ever seen before!

    Include your mother's maiden name and your city of birth as well. They inadvertently left it off.

  • SacrificialLoon

    If you read it with an English accent in your head it sounds more legit.
