Job scam quick guide: it's a scam if...

  • they want you to collect and forward money in any way (a "money mule" job). You'll wind up engaged in money laundering, personally defrauded via expertly forged cheques, money orders, etc, or defrauding someone else who pays for goods that never arrive.
  • they want you to receive packages and reship them somewhere else. The goods will have been obtained fraudulently, and they're just using you to make the shipping address appear local. You will be aiding fraud.
  • they want up-front payment (either to them or someone else) of any sort for anything before you can get the job. This is advance fee fraud: there is no job -- it's just a big con to extract money from you.
  • they want you to buy any kind of "membership" or "kit" in order to start. Forget it -- it's not a real job at all: they're trying to sell you something, and they're probably making a bunch of other false claims about it if they're pitching it as a "job".
  • it's a job offer, and it's spam. There are LOTS of these scams about, as you can see.

Whereas, the Parties intend that this Agreement be entirely independent of other agreements between the Parties or that may be contemplated by the Parties, and that any payments under this Agreement be non-refundable and non-cancelable.

• to define the financial arrangements;
• to specify the assurance process by which the Company and the Contractor can confidently rely on each other’s advice, performance and management information.

2. General Provisions
The Parties will take every opportunity to work together to promote the understanding and implementation of services under this Agreement. The Contractor has primary responsibility of the delivery of services under this Agreement to the Company.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Company hereby engages the Contractor as an independent contractor to perform the services set forth herein, and the Contractor hereby accepts such engagement.

Any and all inventions, discoveries, developments and innovations conceived by the Contractor prior to the term of this Agreement and utilized by him in rendering duties to the Company are hereby licensed to the Company for use in its operations and for an infinite duration. This license is non-exclusive, and may be assigned without the Contractor’s prior written approval by the Company to a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. No contract shall be entered into without these rights being assured to the Company from the Contractor.

5. Confidentiality
The Company and the Contractor shall identify preexisting confidential or proprietary items to be delivered under this Agreement as follows. The Contractor and the Company agree that during this Agreement, it is possible that the Contractor may develop additional data or information that the Contractor considers to be protectable as confidential information. The Contractor acknowledges that during the engagement he will have access to and become acquainted with various trade secrets, inventions, innovations, processes, information, records and specifications owned or licensed by the Company and/or used by the Company in connection with the operation of its business including, without limitation, the Company’s business and product processes, methods, customer lists, accounts and procedures. The Contractor agrees that he will not disclose any of the aforesaid, directly or indirectly, or use any of them in any manner, either during the term of this Agreement or at any time thereafter, except as required in the course of this engagement with the Company. All files, records, documents, blueprints, specifications, information, letters, notes, media lists, original artwork/creative, notebooks, and similar items relating to the business of the Company, whether prepared by the Contractor or otherwise coming into his possession, shall remain the exclusive property of the Company. The Contractor shall not retain any copies of the foregoing without the Company’s prior written permission. Upon the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, or whenever requested by the Company, the Contractor shall immediately deliver to the Company all such files, records, documents, specifications, information, and other items in his possession or under his control. The Contractor further agrees that he will not disclose his retention as an independent contractor or the terms of this Agreement to any person without the prior written consent of the Company and shall at all times preserve the confidential nature of his relationship to the Company and of the services hereunder.

7. Right to Injunction
The loss of the rights and privileges granted to the Company under the Agreement cannot be reasonably or adequately compensated by any action at law, and the breach by the Contractor of any of the provisions of this Agreement will cause the Company irreparable injury and damage.
The services to be rendered by the Contractor under this Agreement are of a special, unique, unusual, and extraordinary character which gives them a peculiar value. Therefore the Contractor expressly agrees that the Company shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief in the event of, or to prevent, a breach of any provision of this Agreement by the Contractor. Resort to such relief shall not be construed to be a waiver of any other rights or remedies that the Company may have for damages or otherwise. The various rights and remedies of the Company under this Agreement or otherwise shall be construed to be cumulative, and no one of the them shall be exclusive of any other or of any right or remedy allowed by law. Any costs for failure to meet these standards, or otherwise defective services, which require reperformance, as directed by Company or its designee, shall be borne in total by the Contractor and not the Company. In the event the Contractor fails to perform in accordance with the above standard the following will apply: Nothing contained in this section is intended to limit any of the rights or remedies which the Company may have under law.

9. Termination of the Agreement
The Company may, at its option, terminate this Agreement without cause in whole or in part, upon giving ten (10) working days advance notice in writing to the Contractor. In addition the parties agree that the Company retains the right to terminate, at once, upon the default of the Contractor and to proceed with the work required under the Agreement in any manner the Company deems proper. If the Contractor is convicted of any crime or offense, fails or refuses to comply with the written policies or reasonable directive of the Company, is guilty of serious misconduct in connection with performance hereunder, or materially breaches provisions of this Agreement, the Company at any time may terminate the engagement of the Contractor immediately and without prior written notice to the Contractor.

This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors or assigns of the Parties hereto and their respective heirs, if any, successors, and assigns.

13. Governing Law

The arbitration proceeding shall take place in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and the awards judgments may be brought to any authorized court.

15. Section Headings
Section headings do not completely and accurately reflect the content of the present Agreement and therefore shall not be considered a part of this Agreement.

16. Waiver
A waiver of a breach or default under this Agreement shall not be a waiver of any other or subsequent breach or default. Failure or delay by either Party to enforce compliance with any term or condition of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such term or condition.

17. Assignment
Neither Party may assign or delegate any of [his or her] rights or obligations arising under this Agreement, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, without the express written consent of the other Party, and any such purported assignment or delegation shall be void and without effect.
