Have you received an email from Dr Peter Wilson of "Renfiled Recruitment
Service" in London (or ANYWHERE
else) offering you a job? But oddly, they require you to pay the
"courier company" to send documents, visa's or other items, or cash a large
advance check and send some of the money via Western Union? "Barrister
Prince William"??? Is the scammer trying to make this scam absurd? They even
misspelled the name of their own company as "Renfiled"!
Of course, since the check is fake, it will bounce a week or so later after
you deposit it. But you have already moneygram'ed the scammers the 90% of
the amount, and that is transacted almost instantly. So you now owe the
bank for the full amount. You may also face criminal charges for passing
counterfeit checks. See
this page for a step-by-step explanation of how the scam unfolds.
In the email below, there are some many red flags, we can't imagine any way
it could be legitimate. Any time any potential employer asks you to send
money via Western Union, IT MUST BE A SCAM. No legitimate company would transfer
money this way. They will all have access to a more secure bank wire or
direct deposit method.
