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.

"My name is Carol Belmonte. I am the manager of the Logistic Solutions Co, which can be found at . Recently I've examined your resume on At the moment we need an agent in your state and your resume looks attractive. You have several qualifications and based on your job history you look trustworthy enough for this position. I'd like to proceed to an online interview, and send you a contract to read over and sign. Once returned to me, we can proceed to the interview process.

To provide some information about the position, I'd like to start off with the logistics of the way our business works. Our company participates in transactions with Ebay, Online stores (, etc) and it is a common matter that a buyer and a seller are in different parts of the world and it does not meet with our clients requirements to use international wires, paypal, or other such methods of payment, as they are in process from one week up to one month. That is why we would like to hire some employees that can deal with the money transfers between the buyer and the seller.

The job description is as follows:

Your responsibilities will be:

- Check your e-mail two times a day to verify incoming transactions. This must be done, and you must send us a confirmation e-mail at least twice a day to verify when you checked your mail.
- Once a week, visit your bank to receive money transfers, and resend it to our clients via another transfer system. We prefer you use Western Union.

Your compensation will be:
1. You will receive 5% from each transaction, up to a limit of $1700 per your probationary month.
After your probationary month your salary will be $2500-$3000 depending on the jobs you receive.

2. You can receive 7% from each transaction but it is necessary for you to register an independent company(Limited Liability Company) and to open a corporate account. You can make up to 5000 but the introductory fees are 300 in your state to form a LLC.

Your commissions, which are 5-7% of every transaction and depend on the quantity of completed transactions and the speed of your work. Normally the amounts that we process vary from $5,000 to $35,000, but can go higher on special occasions. For your convenience, there will be no paycheck. Just leave the commission in your bank account directly after each transfer.

According to US laws you are not required to pay taxes on bank transactions. If you wish to file a 1099 for any work given to your LLC, it will be your responsibility.
