"Company representative" check fraud scam (August 2005)

Introduction

We have received some many unsolicited emails from companies, often claiming to be in China, looking for representatives to establish a business presence in other countries and for transferring payments. Recipients of such mails are typically promised 10% of those payments from customers. In reality, this is a check fraud scam that can work on a massive scale, causing damages from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. In some cases, names of legitimate companies are abused for the scam. In other cases no real company by that name exists.

The scammers are not Chinese (or even Asian) but Nigerian. They mail the "representatives" fake checks to deposit in their personal or business accounts. The "representatives" then wire the amount to a bank accounts in another country, such as Japan, Taiwan, China or the Netherlands. By the time the fake check bounces (which can take a month), the money is already out of the country and the representative is left to pick up the losses.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: All names of companies and individuals listed on this page are fake. The criminals either abuse names of legitimate companies or persons or they invent names. All of the existing companies whose names appear on this page (e.g. CMIEC, Shipro Kasei) are victims of the criminals and are not connected in any way to the illegal activity committed in their name.

If you have been recruited or if you have examples of such spam not listed here then please contact us.

If you have a few minutes, here is a little extra that you can do to help us:

  • Create a free account at Yahoo.com or Yahoo.ca under an assumed name
  • Start composing a new message in Yahoo.
  • Click "reply" in your email program. Copy and paste the quoted spam text into the new message window in Yahoo, as if you had received the message in the Yahoo account. Add some text at the beginning to express your interest in the offer.
  • If a specific address is listed as a contact address in the spam then address the message to that email account instead of the spam sender address.
  • Click "Send".
  • It typically takes a day or two to get a reply. Once you get a reply in your new Yahoo account, click on the arrow on the right hand side of the "Forward" button and select "as attachment". Mark the subject
    [419] rep scam company name
    and send it to 419@419scam.org.

Thank you!

A superficially similar scam is run by Eastern European organized crime rings, who move money from eBay fraud or phishing scams.

In the United States this type of crime is investigated by the Secret Service.
