It's a good thing you were not able to cash it! It's a counterfeit! Tear it up or shred it and move on... also stop all contact with these people... do not reply to any more of their emails... it's DEFINATELY a scam. :!:

Hello,
I also applied for a job on Craigslist and received the same email. I also received a check fo a large amount. However, I contacted and researched every name I was given and contacted the bank the check was from. They verified that the account was real but the check had not been issued and the the account had an alert on it that someone was counterfeiting their checks. I also looked up the name on the envelope where the check came from and the address. The address existed, and the person existed but they did not belong together. Do not cash these checks, infact do not cash any check that is sent to you and you get to keep a pecentage of. Noone is going to just give you money for nothing.

Just so you all know, your bank makes funds available to you in about 24-48 hours when you deposit a check. However, this does not mean the check is good. Checks always have to be sent through the federal reserve board and they then determine if the check is fake or not. This can take 30-60 days to find out. When this is determined you are responsible for repaying your bank the funds, all the fees, and some times criminal charges can be brought against you. Just throw these checks out and don't even bother to contact these places from the start. Besides, don't you think that if a company is a legit company they would have ways to receive payments from their customers? Premier Art is a legit company and if you look them up online they are in the UK but you can purchase their art online by credit card, or can mail them payments. They do not need us.

Lisa

Please be very careful in your detail, on this site.

These recruitment scam people, ripping off the public, are using my art website as ref. illegally.

PremiumArt.co.uk is a ligitimate Art site selling canvas paintings in the UK. We are not recruiters or involved in sending money checks to anyone. This can be seen within a few minutes of veiwing our site. Nor do we even sell in the USA. Anyone contacting my sight enquiring about these criminals get this standard reply:

And I Quote....................
"We are nothing to do with the people you are in conversation with. We are a genuine legal business, dealing in canvas paintings only.

These people are scamming the public for money and using our site address illegally, and without our permission. Please forward your information to Craigslist. They are a known scam on craigslist, you will find it under fraud.

kind regards

What your company is going through is much like what an Identity Theft Victim would go through . . . the scammers have stolen your site's identity and name and used it in scams.

I don't think that anything on our site says that you, or your site, is a scam . . . it simply says that the scammers are using your site's name in their scams.

Give the check and the envelope it came in to the police asap! Stop talking to the scammers. If they call your home. Hang up, and set up your phone to not accept blocked calls.

Take care.
