Money Making Opportunities, Winnings or Scams

See our privacy policy. I have been getting emails about money making opportunities and contest/lottery winnings. I cannot be certain that they are all scams but I have not responded to them. I saw on TV how there are many scams coming out of Africa. If you want, you can respond to them. I read that it was illegal for Americans to win lottery money from other countries. Note the misspellings.

Here is a good one first. The FBI misspelled Washington under the picture. Of course this is not the FBI.

My name is Dennis Ridout of Sandhills Textiles.This is a
company that sells fabrics and textiles to companies and private
parties in wholesale.We have offices in both Africa and the Uk.We sell
and distribute our products to customers in the US and all over the
world.The company is facing  difficulties in selling our products to
US/Canadian residence as they offer to pay in either checks or money
orders,which is difficult for us to cash in the UK or Africa.And this
is making us lose most of our customers  already.

    We are looking for a representative in the US/Canada who will be
working for the company as a partime worker and we will be willing to
pay 10% for every transaction,which would not affect your present
of work.someone who would help in recieving payments from our

is very expensive,this is basically why we need a representative in
the  united
states/canada who will be handling the payment aspect.

    These payments are in form of checks/money orders and they
would come to you in your name, so all you need do is cash them,
deduct your percentage and wire the rest back. you should be aware
that the company is not scared of entrusting its money into anyones
hands as it is a duely registered and recognised company and would
not hesitate to report any scam artist to the country's law enforcers
for proper investigations to be carried out on any scam against it.

  This job would not cost you any amount,you are to receive payments
which will be sent to you from our customers,then you are
to cash them and send the cash via western union money transfer to
anywhere you might be required to send the funds to (this could
either be the uk office or africa office),all transfer fees should be
deducted from the funds to be sent and not from your share.

   If interested,please send replies to
with the following details:


These details are needed for our customers to get across to you with
their payments.We need your urgent reply to enhance improved
