And one more... actually two more instances of the same scam Sep 9, 2020

Last year I came across this from one Ken Surray on Upwork. The project got removed because they tried to take the payment off Upwork, and luckily I hadn't reached an agreement or done any work yet. That was in May 2019.

Today I got the same document via email from a victoria denis, with the same messages as many people have already listed. I didn't suspect anything at first, but after seeing the document I remembered seeing it before, and alarm bells went off. This is a really insi

PUBLIC ORGANISATION PROCEDURES RESEARCH PHASE 1

What do organizations use conflict management for?
For any organization to be effective and efficient in achieving its goals, the people in the organization need to have a shared vision of what they are striving to achieve, as well as clear objectives for each team / department and individual. You also need ways of recognizing and resolving conflict amongst people, so that conflict does not become so serious that co-operation is impossible. All members of any organization need to have ways of keeping conflict to a minimum - and of solving problems caused by conflict, before conflict becomes a major obstacle to your work. This could happen to any organization, whether it is an NGO, a CBO, a political party, a business or a government.
Conflict management is the process of planning to avoid conflict where possible and organizing to resolve conflict where it does happen, as rapidly and smoothly as possible.
Important things to know about "conflict" and "conflict management":

The differences between "competition" and "conflict"
"Competition" usually brings out the best in people, as they strive to be top in their field, whether in sport, community affairs, politics or work. In fact, fair and friendly competition often leads to new sporting achievements, scientific inventions or outstanding effort in solving a community problem. When competition becomes unfriendly or bitter, though, conflict can begin - and this can bring out the worst in people.

TOTAL OF 44 PAGES.

Then:

Thanks so much for your response, Yes Certified I agreed with your price quote and i am willing to pay for your service.. This project is a research paper being sponsor for a seminar coming up soon, so I would like to make an advance payment or make the full payment so that you will know you have my job with you in the meantime. Once again Payment option is Cashier Check , The payment will be received first and cleared by your bank before you send the document ..Kindly get back to me with the following payment information in the format below.

1. Full Name to be written on the Check

2. Full Physical Address:

3. Mobile Number

Your payment will be prepared once I have the requested details. Once again payment will be received and cleared by your bank before you send the document.

I will always count on you,

Regards.


As I suspected and confirmed here, it's a scam.

Thank you everyone for letting each other know and BE CAREFUL!!!

IPs used by scammers are spoofed and have nothing to do with the real location. Forum users are asked to provide IPs only with the purpose of blocking them (which makes the scammers' life a bit more difficult but does not prevent them from changing their IP and continue scamming users).

You need to learn main things about scams in order to be able to discern scammers from genuine outsourcers.

I got the same text to translate from 2 different people, 2 days apart. Actually, one of the texts is titled "RESEARCH PROCEDURES OF COMMUNITY STUDENTS PHASE 1" and the other "PUBLIC ORGANISATION PROCEDURES RESEARCH PHASE 1"

Can we do anything to stop these scammers?

Update: These are the (very detailed) instructions to deposit the check

"Hello, How are you doing today and I hope your day is going well? I got an email that your payment has been delivered to you and all you need to do is to take the check to your BANK, ATM or ONLINE APP to cash under normal circumstances, your bank will want you to deposit the check for 24 hrs-48 hrs for funds to be available in your bank account to withdraw the next day or 2nd day so if the teller request for a deposit then you can proceed and if he/she doesn't request for a deposit then cash the check and keep me posted.
Notice: When you deposited the check, Take the picture or screenshot of the deposit slip given to you and send it to me for record purposes. I hope all is clear now?"
