This is one of the most popular and successful scams and is making a comeback. It ask You if You want to do something very simple for good money. The reason this one works is that it is offering You something believable, much more so than the typical 20 million dollars that belongs to You scams. How does this one work? The scammers are taking advantage of the incompetence of the American banking system. This scammer sends You a group of fake checks, some might be American Express travelers checks, they look very real. You deposit them in your account and Your bank gives You a deposit slip and You think everything is great so You send the scammer the percentage that He asked for but You send Him very real checks. Then two weeks later Your bank contacts You and says the deposit You made has now been deducted from Your account because the checks were fake but it takes them two weeks to figure that out. Now the scammer has Your money but you have a empty bank account and not only did you send Him money You also bought Yourself a new tv.
