I have already been scammed I believe .. there is a $7,392.99 check sitting in my bank account as we speak and I am terrified on what to do .. Is there a possibility someone can check this business out for me? Below is the ad I was given and also an address and phone number.

We care to explain to you thoroughly the entire process that will possibly be the best job you will ever have. This job is possible because our company Internationals Health Care has its headquarters in Ireland, Germany,Russia. As such we do not yet have stores or an alternative store in the United States. Until then we will always need representatives in the U.S. to take care of some financial matters. The problem we are facing is time. The time necessary for our company to receive the funds paid by our customers from U.S. by checks and money orders. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks including shipping to clear these checks in Europe. We need to clear the checks and money orders inside U.S. and then have the funds transferred to our company in Ireland. by other means. This is where you can help us. It would speed up the process tenfold. We have already made a signed agreement with the U.S. officials and we are paying all the necessary taxes for our business. This job is official and legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today. The process itself involves answering e-mails a couple of times per day and going to a bank. This job does not require any kind of experience. It only requires access to the Internet and knowledge to send e-mails. First step in this job is for you to wait at home for checks/money orders sent by our customers on your name as per our instructions. For this to be possible we need your basic personal info such as full name, full address and name of the bank you will use for cashing the checks. If anyone asks for those on our behalf please do not give out this info. After you receive the checks/money orders you will have to go to the bank to cash them. This will happen of course after the bank clears them. The time to clear the checks depends on the bank. We suggest that you use a major bank that takes a minimum of time to do so. We also need you to use your personal or business bank account to speed up the process. You can open another one account for work with us only. After you have cash in hand you will have to contact us at the same e-mail address and then you will receive additional instructions on how to send the money to us. We send you more detailed information about ourselves and you could learn our commercial activity in which we ask you to become our partner better. For basic information we will have to use e-mails. Phone support is only for more sensitive issues that might appear. We will support any fees involved from receiving, cashing and transferring the money to our company. Your commission and salary are not subject to any fee deduction. The 5% off of each check/money order. We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell our products. We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees. That way you can feel absolutely protected and safe.

5% - 15% from each transaction depending on the amount of the deal. The exact commission will be discussed right before the deal.
The amounts of our deals vary from $1,000 to $25,000. The number or the deals that you'll take part in is not limited and only depends on your personal skills, responsibility and communication abilities. If our managers see that in your work, you will be responsible for more and more valuable deals with bigger amounts. In other words, your salary depends on you totally, no limits.

Candidate requirements:
Must be 21 or older.
Willingness to work from home, take responsibility, set up and achieve goals
Ability to create good administrative reporting
Prior customer service experience is a good benefit, but not a must
Honesty, responsibility and promptness in operations
Effective interaction with customers
Familiar to working online, Internet and e-mail skills
The ability of stable communication with our company and on-time and detailed reporting
One or several personal bank accounts needed.

The company is genuine and exists, check here:

The website for this company is here:

However, I doubt whether the person who sent you the email(s) purporting to work for this company has any connection with this company. Have you checked the email headers to see where the emails originated from? Whatever you do, do not withdraw any of that money in your bank account. In a few days or weeks, your bank will inform you that the check is fake, and the money will be deducted from your account

This is an old scam, but to update you on the scam, HealthCare International did initiate legal proceedings against the scammer last year.

HealthCare International is a reputable organisation selling international health insurance.

You probably figured this out already but for anyone else researching:

DO NOT spend a penny of that money. Go talk to your bank and let them know what happened.. Hopefully they will waive the bounced check fees and not press charges for passing a fake check. If you have already taken out the portion the "company" wanted you to send them and sent it western union.. then you are going to have to repay that money to the bank.

If it sounds too good and easy to be true.. well you know the rest... :(

Work at home FREE.. surveys, mystery shopping, telecommuting and more!
