Despite the fact that this strategy increased my sales by about 25 percent, i am still facing some problems as regards payments.

I have decided not to turn down this mode of payment so that my sales wont drop but rather increase. THAT IS WHY I NEED YOU!

If you think you can be of help to me by being my Financial Representative in the States.You will be based on 10% commission for every payment you process and you can receive payments from my customers like three times in a week depending on how much money you would want to make.
-Payments would be sent to you from my customers.
-You take the payment to your bank for the cashing processes.
-Deduct your 10% commission from the total amount after cashing.
-Send the remaining to me/suppliers via WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER/MONEY GRAM.
You do not need any capital to start neither would you have to spend a cent.All we need from you is just a little bit of commitment sincerity and dedication.

I don't really understand why some many of these scam mails are sent out unless of course unsuspecting people are responding to them thinking they are going to get money for nothing. The only thing these people are going to get is a drained bank account and possible bank fraud charges.
The way these scams work are simple. These "companies" get you to cash checks through your bank account, the money seems to clear; it can take a check up to 20 days or more to clear or to come back as NSF but as courtesy your bank may only hold the funds for up to 10 days. So what happens is the check bounces the amount of the check comes out of you account plus whatever other fees. You are out the money while these company now has your money and of course you will never be able to get in touch with them.
Another thing is these scam artist may claim they would like to take the funds directly out of your account while leaving your commission percentage and may request your banks routing number and your account number. Now what some people may not realize is if someone has access to your account number and your banks routing number then they can deposit and with drawl money from your account via electronic transfer. If there is a trail of some sort where it appears you authorize it the bank won't refuse it.
Of course that is not the only way they can get your account and routing number. See most banks have a policy to help minimize mistakes. They usually have their members write their account number and signature on the back of checks that are deposited into their account. The teller then stamps the back of the check with the date and the banks routing number. All it takes is for these scam artist to get a copy of the check and they have your account, routing number, and forge an authorization form for electronic transfers. The poor fool who falls for these scam ends up with a drained account.
