Foreign Business Offers


How it works:

  Scammer claims to be a business person or government official/ dignitary of a foreign country
  Scammer offers to make the victim a partner on a lucrative business deal
  The victim may be sent a check or money order for "start-up costs" and then be instructed to send money or money transfer to pay legal or other fees
  The checks that the victim receives are FAKE CHECKS but they are out a large sum of money before they realize this.
