Check cashing scam by Bedwell Modelling Group / Anthony Chaldon and James Jones

The scam goes as follows; A fellow named, James Jones(amarankyi@yahoo.com) gets in touch with me through, "Tagged.com" and says that Bedwell Modelling Group, which he works for, is doing a magazine production and that they would like to buy my profile picture for $6000.00. The deal was that once I receive payment from one Mr. Kelvin Smith Chaney, kelvinsmith.chaney@gmail.com, I was to deposit it in my account and once cleared I was to send 80% to Mr. Jones and his partners.

Well, I did receive a cheque from Canadian Atlas Furniture Corporation, (the company that was supposedly doing the magazine production), for $6500.00 but instead of depositing it in my account I went to Money Mart to cash it and Money Mart ended up calling the RCMP and I was arrested and charged with possessing stolen goods over $5000.00 and passing forged documents.

I ended up giving up the cheque, the envelope it came in and the attached note telling me to advise Mr. Chaney before I went and cashed the cheque. It turns out a batch of cheques belonging to Canadian Atlas Furniture Corporation were stolen and I guess these fellows are using them to dupe us into depositing them into our bank accounts and thus sending them money. The cheques will eventually come back as no good and whoever deposits them will be out the money.

These scammers have been calling my house so I also took down their numbers. They are: Anthony Chaldon @ 905-617-0751 and James Jones @ 646-312-7853. When Mr. Jones first contacted me he used the following e-mail address, amacoltd2007@yahoo.com.

Once I find a link for posting cheque cashing scammers on your site, I will forward all the conversations I had with these gentlemen.

Could you please tell me how to post my conversations with these scammers on your site? I wasn't formally charged, the RCMP believes me, but I don't want anybody going through the embarrassment I went through at Money Mart and the police station.

I was contacted by Mr. James Jones, but quickly changed to Chris Moore and his email address is jamesmodelworld@gmail.com. I am trying to sell my car and he contacted me asking me to give pictures and details on my vehicle and he would send me a cheque of $23,000 for a requesting quote of $6,900. And with all that, he wanted me to deposit the cheque and send off the rest to Mr Kelvin and his partners. Overall it's the same number listed 19056170751 and being suspicious I googled the umber and came up with this site. Thank you guys for warning us and not going through with this ridiculous scam! Overall they need change that number or try harder to get any of us to do this.

Thanks!

his email address is on facebook (amarankyi@yahoo.com) as James Ama, i think he's african, if i was someone he had tried to scam, i would probably put a false picture of a pretty girl on facebook and then befriend him, so i could get his address and then report him, hey thats just me but below is his picture, what you guys do to him is your affair

I also got one of those email messages exactly like the ones others are referring to on this page. It sounded very strange to me, since I didn't know who this was, and I searched this 'Modeling Agency' only for it to come up as :'No Matches Found' so then I knew that it was definetly a scam. Mine was also about pictures and for them needing my permission to use them in some magazine of theirs and would need my permission. Also, everyone take notice that the ones sending out these emails and making the phone calls just say 'MAGAZINE' but they never give a particular name as to which magazine they are talking about...(like PEOPLE or US WEEKLY) this is just to let others know that these scams are ones to look out for, and don't answer any of them because if it sounds tooo good to be true then it probably is...take care everyone
