If you see the following email delete immediately, it is a scam! It cost me over $ 1500.00 out of my checking account! They rope you in by believing what they say and have you cash a check, supposedly take your commission plus bonus and Western Union the remainder of the money to another party then the check bounces and you are left paying the charges.
Subject: RE:  Message from Careerbuilder: You have received a new job opportunity Importance: High Hello Ray, I suppose you understand all the duties. If you have questions please give me a reply. The contract is here in attachment. You have to download and fill all the information requested in the contract and send it back via email. Please be advised that unsigned contracts or contracts with an incomplete name and address (this is the address that will be used to send the checks) will not be accepted. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS: 1. Q: Why don't you receive checks directly to your address and you need me? A: Because within three months all our customers will forward US payments to our US headquarters and we decided to find a person who can handle all our business over there. Cashing US checks over here might take up to 30 days and some of our customers will chose to make this kind of payment and we can't afford to lose so much time. 2. Q: When do I get my share when I cash a check? A: You will take your share instantly, as soon as you have cash in hand, you take your 10% and then send the rest of the funds to us. You will take your share as soon as you will manage to get the check cashed. 3. Q: Do I have to pay for the Western Union fees? A: NO. Western union fees will be taken from the reminder amount after you will take your share from checks or withdrawals 4. Q: Where will I be sending the money after a check gets cleared? A: As soon as you will have cash in hand all you have to do is to notify us via e-mail or phone and we will provide you all the instructions needed in order to complete the Western Union process. 5. Q: What information do you need from me so we can start work together A: We will need your address, email and phone numbers where you can be reached. The address is needed so we can let our customers know where to send the checks. 6. Q: What name will appear on checks at PAYABLE TO field? A: Checks will be made payable to you so you can cash them. This will be done until we will be able to come over there establish our business and open a business account with the company's name on it. Making checks payable to you will not make you liable for paying any taxes to IRS. Every year we will provide forms and papers proving that you have to pay the income taxes only on the funds you will earn (10%) from this and NOT TOTAL AMOUNT you will receive. 7. Q: Who will be my main contact until one of your representatives will come over here to open new offices A: I, I will be your main contact and you can call me or email me at any time with any questions you might have. 8. Q: How long does it takes for the first payment from your customers to arrive to me? A: First payment will come within 10 business days after you will provide us your contact information. We will let our customers know where to send the checks, it takes within 3 to 7 business days for the check to arrive with USPS. 9. Q: What are the amounts on the checks I will receive? A: Check amounts are between $1,000-$2,500/each. 10. Q: Do I have to pay any taxes for the amount of the checks I will receive? A: NO. You will only pay taxes for the money you will earn (10% from total amount). At the end of the year we will provide you all forms and papers to prove that you sent the money to us like we said. 11. Q: Will I be doing anything illegal according to the US LAWS? A: NO! Our company is a respectable one and we just want to launch our products to the US MARKET not defrauding our employees and customers so you can rest assured that nothing is illegal. 12. Q: If I would like to be paid once a month can I do that ? A: As soon as we will arrive over there and if you will get good feedback with us we will re-negotiate your contract and set up a monthly salary for you if this is what you want. We will also add benefits as soon as the offices are opened over there. All we have to tell you is that you will earn up to $85,000/year in any way you will choose. It will be a little harder until we will start rolling all this process but from what we estimate from our sales this will be the highest you will get in a year. 13. Q: Will your company ask me any sensitive information such as, Bank Account Numbers, Credit Card Numbers, SSN, etc. ? A: WE WONT need any of your private information, such as SSN, Mother Maiden Name or anything. WE do not want you to believe that this is a trick in order to get your personal banking information or credit card information. We are just trying to get along and extend our services and this is why we need someone who can take care of this thing! 14. Q: Can you please explain how does the entire process works ? A: 'Of course, I will use a simple example for a check of $1,000. Let's say you agree to work with us and you email us your Name and Address where you can receive the payments from our customers. As soon as we will receive this email from you and have CONFIRMATION that you agree all our terms and conditions we forward your address to our customers in order to make the payments. Our customers will let me know as soon as payments have been sent. Most of them will use USPS as a shipping and handling and this is why it might take a little until you will receive the first check, and we won't be able to track it, so we just have to wait. As soon as I get the confirmation from my customer that the payment has been sent I will also email you and let you know that a payment it's on it's way. As soon as you will get the check you have to let me know that you received it so i can also update my customer. If you will manage to get the check cleared same day this will be great and you will apply for the bonuses mentioned. Now, as soon as you have cash in hand you have to email us and we will send you an email with full instructions regarding the transfer of the funds. As soon as you will get our email, you will take your share from the total amount UP FRONT (E.G.: Check value is $1,000 you will take your share immediately ($100)) and then take all other fees for transferring the funds along with the bonus from our share that will remain. Basically all you have to do is to check your email daily as we will keep you updated from time to time and also as soon as payments will start to come we will let you know. You can also continue with your other job if you want to along as you can handle ours too. 15. Q: I am interested, can we setup an interview regarding this position? A: If you still have further questions try to see if you can find your answer within these ones if not please email us. Unfortunately we cannot setup any interviews now as we do not have any representatives in US. We will be able to come and meet within the next few months when the new offices will be opened in you area! All details are needed so please be sure to check the message before you send it. We will receive an email and within 24 hours we will send you the agreement and Contract.
