The Troops Don’t Need Your Help “Processing Fund Transfers”

9 Comments

It’s rare that I’m shocked these days. I’ve seen so many different scams, that the levels to which a scammer will go doesn’t really phase me anymore. That was, until I received the email titled, “Dear United States patriot, we offer you an employment.”

Just read this garbage.

You received this letter because you were seeking a job at www.careerbuilder.com. We’ve reviewed your resume and would like to offer you a position in our organization.

Many of our troops are serving far away and are living in facilities that provide few of the comforts of home. Despite the many sacrifices they make for our country, they are not able to have some of the basic services we take for granted every day. In addition, troops rarely have access to their U.S. bank accounts, meaning that purchasing items they want from off-base vendors is rarely an option. As a result, U.S. soldiers are placed in a lose-lose situation in which they do not have access to basic comforts of life and cannot go out and buy them with their own money. Cash4troops is a non-profit organization based in Wisconsin that manages fund transfers to American troops deployed overseas.

We are seeking to hire people who love their country, are looking to work from home, are dependable and honest, can get the job done on time, have 1-2 hours a day to process fund transfers, and are willing to check their e-mail 1-2 times a day. Having reviewed your resume on careerbuilder.com, we believe that you are just the kind of person we need.

Here’s how it works:
Troops request fund transfers through our order forming manager, who then reviews the orders and sends instructions to you, our ?agent,? via email or phone. We will provide you with all the information you will need to complete the funds transfer. Your job will be to follow our simple instructions in order to route the money through your account to our soldiers. You don’t have to spend a penny of your own money for these transfers ? all we?ll need is your time and bank account. Once the transaction is complete, we then will pay for your time and services. You will receive five to ten percent of the total transaction promptly after the soldier has received their funds ? we realize and appreciate the effort you?ve given us in our mission to serve our troops.
Our company?s personnel is very friendly and will help you every step of the way. We will be more than glad to provide 24/7 email support. All taxes are already paid.

P.S. Every week we receive thanks from troops who are glad to be appreciated and remembered. Our service members make sacrifices every day for our country. It takes so little to let them know that we appreciate what they are doing for us. When you sign up as a volunteer, you will let our troops know that you support them, and you have not forgotten them.

Is there anything more disgusting than these morons who are using American soldiers as a ploy to run the scams? Seriously, this one absolutely sickens me.

I’m sure these jackasses are operating similar scams with different domain and manager names. If you received a similar email, please leave a comment below with the name they used.

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

  1. I was contacted through my yearbook account and then asked to speak on
    my yahoo account. He claimed he was a soldier in Iraq sgt_o5couch@yahoo.com . Basically saying he loved me and all that rubbish within one day !!!! Then said he was desparate to meet me and would I forward him the funds to come to England and he would pay me back when he got there. I basically sent a message telling him I knew he was a scammer and how stupid did I think he was.
    What really irrates me is that troops are dying out there to make this a safer world for us all and these **** are using their good names to get money out of people.

  2. I was also contacted by these people via Career Builders. Unfortunatly, I had no Idea that it was a scam and worked for them for over two months until a police officer was sent to my house. I was shocked to find out that I had been scammed and was helping them steal thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims, using thier credit cards and checking accounts to purchase items and send them over seas to “soilders”! I am very upset that I did not realize whatwas going and to make matters worse a couple of weeks ago I too recieved two phoney postal money orders from someone who wanted me to cash them. I took one look at them and knew they were phoney and sent them to the US Postal service for investigation. This is a nightmare, I have police coming to my house and looking at me like I did something wrong. It is unimaginable what these people are capable of.

  3. This is really low,our troops are defending our country and protecting the same scums that are trying to steal their money. Please catch and punish these scums to the fullest extent of the law. I am a former service member and they all need to be stopped now.

    Thank God, my mother talked me out of falling for this.

    So glad I didn’t get scammed.
    I hope whoever is doing this crap gets caught and the proper legal action gets taken!

    Just when you thought you’d heard it all! These deadbeats need to get a life, and remember they’re here in the land of the free. Our troops have enough to worry about without being used for what sounds like a good cause.

    I received something kind of like that, but it was from a soldier; see below!
    SGT. TERESA TRACEY ORTIZ

    Hello dear,

    My name is Sgt.Teresa Ortiz,an American soldier
    serving here in Iraq.Please I am seeking your assistance
    to move Seven Million Five Hundred U.S Dollars (US$7.5M)
    to you as far as I can be assured that my share will be
    safe in your care until I complete my service here in Iraq.
    Please rely as soon as possible.

    Best Regards,

    Sgt. Teresa Ortiz
    The spelling alone is a dead giveaway that the above is not on the level, and no soldier I know of has anywhere like that kind of money.

    I was sent phony checks 2 years ago and they instructed me just like that.They said they would send me checks to my house which they did and to take them to the currency exchange and sed most of it two Russia and keep $200.00 for myself. Well they were phony and I almost got arrested for even taking them up there.

  7. They have certainly taken time, money and effort to set this scam up as demonstrated by their website, http://www.Cash4troops.org.

    One wonders why they can’t funnel that passsion for the good of all people rather than just themselves. I guess it takes all kinds.

  8. Wow Steve, you are right. Just when you thought these shameless troglodytes couldn’t get any lower, SURPRISE!

    The further sickening reality is that although the public in general is becoming more educated and cautious (thanks to sites like this one) you know several people are going to think that because their resume was posted on a “PAY TO VIEW ONLY” job board like CareerBuilder, that this is legitimate.

    Being a recruiter, I can tell you that resume access to the top two boards (Monster & CareerBuilder) is not cheap and can run over $13K per year, per board… Just goes to show you, these scams are not being run by some unorganized gang. These guys have invested some serious $$ into this.

  9. Wow, truly a new low. I’m sure one day a creative scammer will figure out a way to use terminally ill children as bait to get people to process fake payments.
