After searching unsuccessfully to find out if this was a scam I agreed to it, only to figure out the truth afterwards. My question though is this: I have yet to receive any payments and have emailed and asked not to be sent anything, however if I do receive a check and do nothing with it will that be enough? I gave them no bank information, only that asked for in the form above; name, address, etc. Am I safe? What should I do? Please help. I need information as quickly as possible. Thank you.

If you have not accepted or deposited any checks from them, the WORST that might happen is they may use your name, phone number or mailing address in another scam (let's say as their "business contact" or something else to make them sound more legit)

If you do get a check and they bug you for money, tell them that the bank found the check to be counterfeit and all info was turned over to the FBI and Secret Service.

Today I received two envelopes in the mail from the company, one of which wasn't even addressed to me (my address obviously, but some other woman's name), that one I didn't even open. The one which was addressed to me I opened and inside where money orders for over $900 each. I also received an email from the so called company stating "deduct 10% and send the remaining balance through western union money transfer." Do I do nothing, but still tell them that the bank found the checks to be counterfeit and all info was turned over to the FBI and Secret Service. You can confirm that this is all a scam, correct? I found the email to be quite similar to others I read about both on this forum and other places online. I am very worried about legal ramifications. If I do nothing with these checks, am I correct in assuming that I have not yet actually committed any crime?

As long as you don't try to cash the checks you have done nothing wrong. Any time they ask you to keep a % and wire money to them it is a definite scam. It works on the premise that your bank will make the funds available to you before the check actually clears the supposed bank it is drawn on. You wire money to them and then the check is returned to your bank, weeks even months later, as fraudulent and you are on the hook for the money that you took out and wired. Burn the checks or destroy them in some way. Once you notify them that the checks were seen as fraudulent and that you are on to them they will quickly disappear. It is good that you didn't get caught up in this and end up losing money or worse being arrested.
