Scams work 2 ways
Post a resume under a false identity in order to get into one of these scams under a false name. You get the realistic looking scam check, you endorse
it over to any deserving low-life for cash. (if you can play this so that the check you get is low-ammount, like 500, it helps. just make a smaller
A common scam which preys upon boot-Marines in Oceanside, CA is for a scammer to pose as a tourist who has never seen an ATM, and to trade bad foreign
checks in the 300-500 dollar range for the max 200 dollars that can be withdrawn from a Pacific Marine Credit Union account. I was always petrified
that I might one day be fighting for my life alongside people who fell for this.
You pose as a Marine (friday nights at The Body Shop or Deja Vu in Oceanside, CA. Stay away from other Marines, act shy, keep an eye out for well
dressed young men who are paying too much attention to the Marines and not enough to the girls.
Once you're the mark, you play half-way into his scam. We can help eachother friend, I got this check as a grad present from boot, my parents are
Nigerian Missionaries. Anyway, my friggin girlfriend just left while i was at boot- now i owe the landlord a ton of money and I can't keep cash in my
account. Give me that X dollar check you were talking about, plus the difference, and you can take this 500 dollar check. I can probably trade the
smaller check to one of my fellow Marines for cash. If you conman is stupid, he may actually give you a small amount of cash along with the bad check,
in exchange for your bad check.
Alternately, you tell him you have a better idea: same reason as above. You tell him that you've got to hide you cash so that you don't get your
account frozen. Tell him to create an American bank account and write you a series of post-dated checks (not made out to anyone yet, so as to launder
them easily) corresponding to your paydays, and you want to get your direct deposit moved to that account. "but if you screw me I will kill you" or
some futile macho marine BS like that. He's not putting up any cash, so he may just do it. If he played ball, he has given you a name, mailing
address, and checks. Use this info to pull off the following scam
I'm not going to give you a detailed how to in identity theft, but any retard can do it. A fake employer ID and a modified copy of your own social
security card get you a certified birth cert. A fake employer ID and a birth cert get you an AZ drivers license. A driverse license and birth cert can
get you a social security card. That's everything you need to do ANYTHING in a persons name. The drivers license is the important part though.
As mentioned in the direct deposit scam, you have checks from this person, and you have your pic on an ID with his name. Go pass the checks and let
him fry for it. The worst case scenario is that he used a fake or stolen ID, and even then he's already stealing from them, so you're not doing
anything so wrong... just getting a cut from the thief.
Now where are my logical people- I know somebody is gonna show me why i'm not as smart as i think.
