Jeremie Van of Model Group Agency (MGAgency) of Weidman, MI

I got this e-mail from this "Jeremie Van" looking for Avon products:

It's my pleasure to hear from you, we are coming to your area for the year 2013 first photoshoot from the newly established ®Model Group Agency (MGAgency) in Weidman, MI. These suppose to have been order online but for now all orders and purchases from (MGAgency) are done with paper payment so I would need you to please get the following products for me:

You will have to let me know the total cost and the sale tax to pay for the items, also the name and address you want the payment sent to with your phone number to reach you in case of emergency. After you send me this information I would instruct my sponsors to send you the payment which would be in form of money orders or certified check which you can cash instantly at your bank. Please get back to me as soon as possible so I can continue with the purchase, We would be there soon so we would pick up the items in person but I want you to have the funds in advance so send me the quotations and details needed to send you payment.

Thank you and God bless,
JeremieVan

So, after some correspondence this person informs me that their travel manager "accidentally" sent too much money and that they need me to Money Gram the money back to them ASAP. Here's the e-mail:your payment has been sent but there is a big mistake on the payment mail to you...... I'm emailing you to let you know that it would arrive via courier service within the next 120hrs, I also want you to know that the amount which was sent to you by the sponsor is more than your asking price because they mistakenly sent our traveling fund along with the money for our expenses, so I would also let you know the name and address which you would remit the rest of the funds to, I hope I can trust you with the rest of the funds for our flight ticket because people can be really funny nowadays.

Please let me know as soon as you get this email...

Thanks and God bless for your understanding,

JremieVan.

And here's the other e-mail with the details:Good Morning FELICIA,

I need to inform you that the payment for the products would be delivered to you today via USPS courier service, my sponsor gave me this tracking number from USPS 9470112699350000547422, so that you can also confirm it's delivery status, please proceed to the bank for the cash immediately.

Also, I will like to notify you that the sponsor was mistakenly added our travel expenses to the funds sent to you, all you have to do is just deduct the money for your Avon items from the fund and get the rest send to my PA via MONEY GRAM money transfer later today after you have cashed the check at your bank, as soon as you send the funds I would be able to provide you with our trip plan. Below is my PA name and address you would send the funds to:

Name: Scott Norman.
City: Las Vegas
State: NV
Zipcode: 89121

N.B: TO AVOID ANY FURTHER DELAY ON THIS TRANSACTION, PLEASE DO NOT SEND BACK THE REST FUND INFORM OF A CASHIER CHECK OR MONEY ORDER AGAIN, USE MONEY GRAM TO TRANSFER THE REST FUND.

After the transfer get back to me with all the transfer details from MoneyGram, the details needed would be the Reference Number (Ref # Usually 8 Digits) also, I will need to know the total amount sent after deducting transfer charges, Note that the transfer charges should be deducted from the money you are sending to my PA and not from your avon money. The funds are needed urgently, so get this done and get back to me as soon as possible today. Also advice when my Avon would arrive if not arrived yet.

Thank you and God bless you...

So, anyway I get home to find a Cashier's Check for $1790. I found it funny because 1.) they were very insistent on me sending money through Money gram 2.) How do you make a mistake and send ALL your travel money with Avon money?! 3.) The modeling company is in Michigan, the man I'm suppose to Money Gram money from is in Nevada and the bank the Cashier's check came from was in Washington state

Needless, to say I went to my bank, they told me it was a fake and thankfully I'm not out $1790, because once you cash that check and Money Gram the money to them, they get the money and your bank takes the money out of your account because it's fraudulent.
So, I'm safe and this moron is out $18 for mailing the cashier's check.
BEWARE!!! I have also tried to be scammed by Hallie John representing Hallie Sister Modeling Agency Incorporation out of Florida.
