Excuses why scammers will ask you to forward a percentage of the cell phone number list check on can vary, but we've seen reasons like the victim has been overpaid, or the "job description" includes sending money on and keeping a percentage. A nearly identical and updated version of check cashing scams is done through fake money transfer scams. Especially watch out for scammers insisting on paying via cell phone number list money wiring services. The scammers still ask you to forward a percentage of the money wired to you on to somebody else, often for the same reasons, but ultimately the money transferred to you either gets reversed or is stolen so you still end up losing the cell phone number list money you forwarded. So avoid schemes which ask you to receive money and forward cell phone number list a percentage of that money on to somebody else, whether it be by check or money transfer. This sign is usually isolated to Advanced Fee Fraud because the victim paying "fees" is the premise of cell phone number list the scam - its how these types of scammers actually make their money, but it is worth mentioning so we can highlight some common examples of what fees you are expected to pay cell phone number list that show up in many scams. Probably the most common is the "release bond" which is sometimes cell phone number list referred to as a "security fee" - the scammers will usually say that you have to pay this for some sort of insurance so their bank will release the money to you. It is a common reason because it is cell phone number list successful as the victim assumes it is a one off and final payment just before they get the massive amount of cash promised to them by the scammer. Another popular charge is "bribes" - as most Advanced Fee Fraud is committed in Nigeria or other African nations, the scammers cell phone number list often lie about corrupt governments and government officials that usually need "bribing" or the transfer won't go ahead.
