mike j art world / scam artist

1 United Arab Emirates Review updated:

they send you counterfiet check/money orders in the mail, with instructions on how to distribute the funds. It all looks real and sounds good especially when your in a financial bind, and you are looking for a way out. But don't be fooled it's not a real job opportunity, you'll end up oweing the bank that money if you deposit and disperse the funds. I pray that you don't fall victum to these scam artists. I don't have the email address but it's from 'Dr. mike johnson' but this isn't the only one, there are plenty of scammers out there, I had four in one week. Just know that no one is going to send you any money that you've never met, or have you send money to someone else. DON'T DO IT, THROW THOSE CHECKS/MONEY ORDERS IN THE TRASH THEY ARE NOT REAL!

I had received the same offer. It seemed to good to be true. They actually sent me two checks in hopes of cashing them. Luckily I talked to my grandparents before I made the biggest mistake ever. Thank goodness I actually listened to them. Do you have any way that I can report them? Thanks again for your post.

So yeah. I don't know if he's the exact same guy, but it sure sounds like it. I've been trying to search him up too but this article is the closest one I could get too. If they're really as popular as they say, then their name should appear online right? But no, it doesn't.

What I really don't get is why people like him would scam people like this? I mean what do they get from it, really? The check's fake and we get in trouble but in the end, they don't get any money either right?

I replied and this is what I got back. Seemed a bit shady, with all the talk about charity and orphanages and then the certified cashiers checks. I found this posting and this is my reply. If it sounds too good to be true then it probable is.
