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.

Typical money mule scam: they transfer stolen money to you and ask that you wire it to them. High pay, high risk of arrest on money laundering charges or similar. Contact your bank immediately if you've been sucked into doing this.

Here is I'm sure another scam from the can of these creative souls...I'm sure there will be many people who will fall for this...See solicitation from Inter Trans Logistics...Whether this company is legal and has this offer cannot be verified. Meaning its a scam.
