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.

       Would u like to work online from home/temporarily and get paid weekly?  We are glad to offer you for a job position at our company, KIN HING HONG TEXTILES LTD we need someone to work for the company as a representative/book keeper in the UNITED STATE OF AMERICA/CANADA. This is in view of  us not having an office presently in the USA/CANADA. You don't need to have an Office and this certainly wont disturb any form of  work you have, going on at the moment. From the Site,  you will find out the Company produces the following varieties of clothing materials: - batiks, assorted fabrics for interior decor, silk and traditional costumes which we have clients we supply weekly in the states. Our integrated yarn and fabric manufacturing operations use state-of-the-art textile equipment from the worlds leading suppliers. Order processing, production monitoring and process flow are seamlessly integrated through a company-wide computer network. * The average monthly income is abo!
ut! 4000.00 $. * No form of investments from you. * This job takes only 1-3 hours per day Our Company manufactures and sells textile and fabrics, we have seller all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a new market (being the USA/CANADA). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion. We have decided to deliver the products in upfront, it's very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent. Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as possible because customers can just "forget" to pay.Unfortunately we are unable to open bank accounts in the United States without first registering the company name. Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put on hold, For fear of loosing the customers out rightly.

        Secondly,we cannot cash these payments from the USA/CANADA soon enough as international Checks take about 14 working days for cash to be made available. We lose about 75,000 $ of net income each month because we have money transfer delays.

         YOUR TASK =============== Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales. Our sales manager sells products. Once he makes a sales we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FED EX).The customer receives and checks the products. After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through Certified Checks ,  postal order and through bank to bank transfer. etc

Based on the amount involved. We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem.

Your tasks are:

1. Receive payment from Customers
2. Cash Payments at your Bank
3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed
4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the
offices you will be contacted to send payment to.

Payment is to forward either by Money Gram or Western Union Money Transfer. Local Money transfers take barely hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately. For example you've got 3000.00$ You take your income: 300.00 $ Send to us: 2700.00 $ First month you will have 15-20 transactions on $3000.00-4000.00 So you may calculate your income.For example 18 transactions on 3500.00 $ gives you up to 4410.00 $ Plus your basis monthly salary is 1000.00 $ Total: 5410.00 $ per month. After establishing close co-operation you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more.

Our payments will be issued out in your name and you get them cashed in your bank deduct your weekly salary and forward the balance to the company via western union money transfer or money gram money transfer. We understand it is an unusual and incredible job position. This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time doing another job; you'll get good inc ome and regular job.

This scam can leave you sitting in jail if you dont heed these warnings!! I actually went to 2 different places to try to cash a check for $1,980.00, the first place wouldnt cash anything over $1,500.00(THANK GOD!!!). The check was supposedly issued by Bank of America, so my second stop was the Bank of America. Needless to say trying to cash a $1,980.00 bad check is not only fraud, but it is a felony!!!!! I had to file a report with the local police in hopes to not get charged. Everything would be fine if I filed a report (WHAT WAS I THINKING???), Since I corresponded with these scammers I am now an Acessory to the fact!! Even though I had no way of knowing! The police told me if we have the resources to corraspond with these scammers we have the resources to avoid them. After the police left today I looked up buisness, e-mail and bank info. This website had somehow missed my view the first time. I am sharing this with you in hopes to reach people before they go to jail for someone else to get by with identity theft, frauding banks and anything else they are doing. It is almost impossible to stop these scammers, so as honest people are losing their hard earned money to third world countries and forigners, Remember, Theres someone in your neighborhood (poor,hungary kids)that could use the money your throwing away. Dont waste it on THEM use it on US!!
