Payment Processing Scam Letter Database
Instructions • Database List
Friday August 08, 2014
WARNING! Payment Processing scammers are using the names Fundersonline and Funders Online. There are two legitimate web sites using that name, www.fundersonline.org and www.fundersonline.com. Neither of these sites has anything to do with Payment Processing job offers.
Open all the letters within the different series such as the Latvia Finance Group, then those letters that stand alone while keeping an eye out for the same phrases, misspellings and grammatical errors, and typestyles. This will enable you to see that the marketing and recruiting packets are being sent out by different people, but that they were all created by the same individual or group of individuals.
Different scammers change the wording of the packets they receive for several reasons - one reason to put their mark on the outgoing recruitment emails, hoping that their spin will be better than the original literature, what you might call one-upmanship; another is for marketing purposes, which means trying different spins to see which one brings in the most victims.
Unless otherwise stated, the letters in this database were received by American citizens residing in the US.
The emails of those victims who have been arrested cannot be published so long as there is either an ongoing investigation or open court case.
IMPORTANT: If you have opened a Payment Processing Scam Letter and/or have been corresponding with the criminals, you are at HIGH RISK of Identity Theft. Please go here (will open in new window): Your Identity Theft Prevention To Do List
