I have been looking for DF Transportion since they contacted me, saying that I applied for a manager trainee position. I applied for over 200 jobs this summer. I received this email:
My name is David Stiller, the Senior Assistant of HR Dept and Special Projects supervisor, I received your file from Ms. Wilson this morning and I will be responsible for your training, which starts on Monday, August/27 and will last until September/24. On Sept/25 we got the final test scheduled. Starting next week I will send the studies over your e-mail, 5 studies per week, one for every day (usually sent before noon) and a short test every Friday. Monday noon please expect your first study and all the instructions you may need. All in all the training is not difficult, so please call or e-mail me if you need. The other important thing is the address I got on your file:
2020 Tisinger Ave., Dallas, TX 75228
Please let me know if this is the correct one, it will be used for the salary paycheck, send me a short note to confirm.
then I got this: I attach the first piece of training course for you. Please take a look and let me know if anything is unclear there. Please read carefully and apply with questions if any. You will receive those studies every day for next 4 weeks, every Friday you will receive a short test for them and the final test after 4 weeks. Your training paycheck will be sent to you as soon as you complete at least 4 weeks of training. As for the documents, you can study them on your weekends if you are busy on business days, still please try to confirm the receipt of each single study so I know that no studies are missed.
The Friday test has to be completed and returned to me before Monday noon. Test won't seem difficult if you read the training documents, you can use studies for reference. Please let me know if you got any questions so far. I will call you later this week to introduce myself, give a voice to the name. Also, please confirm that you got the attachment. Sent in PDF format,
let me know if you need a DOC file instead.
The scam is quite elaborate involving his wife or associate to pretend like she is calling you from copenhagen for a verbal interview as they set up office in the U.S. for expansion.
I have been out of work all summer, and they next asked this, after I took several of their tests:
Hello,to keep you busy and paid during the training I applied for the project for you to participate in. Our Equipment department got a part time position opened, below are the details. We are now opening a new office in one of European countries and they require few types of equipment now (laptops and/or phones). Our equipment department didn't find suppliers for the reasonable prices yet and looks like it might take up to a month. At this moment they need to provide the equipment at least for the top managers. The Equipment department plans to hire managers who will buy all the necessary equipment for them, until they sign an agreement with supply company. You showed good results for your tests, got positive characteristics from psychologist and a brilliant resume, I won't have any problems with getting you into their program. You will spend about 2 more weeks in training with me and few weeks before stage 2, if you pass the final test (which I am sure won't be a problem for you), so you will have time to start this part-time position.
The position includes salary $300/week and paid weekly. Your duties will be limited to purchasing laptops and phones and other equipment at On-line shops (mostly Apple equipment). You will purchase for the money that the financial department will send, you don't have to spend any of your own or pay upfront. Position will take you up to 5 extra hours a week. Our accountants will forward the instructions for you to access our account and apply for the payment.
Please note that you won't have to share any of your private/sensitive information, like account or card numbers. Our Financial department will send you the manual with detailed instructions, documents, access data and their contact information in case you need any help. The same way you will receive your commission weekly. This is a temporary position, it lasts as long as stage 1 goes. You can take one if you are interested in extra income. Besides that it's a good chance to get some extra points for the training, since the competition TX is expected to be tough. This opportunity will give you a vision of how our departments cooperate and will give you some advantage against other candidates in your state. If you want me to apply with your file, let me know. I will write a recommendation letter and send it to the training department together with your resume, I will also send you the manual and all the necessary instructions.
Please note, your participation will considerably improve your personal file and guarantee you a better paid position with our company. Please let me know at your earliest convenience, the Equipment project starts on Wednesday, September 12.

Well, needless to say, I have no credit cards, as I have been without work. so, I got this:
Hello, your 2nd test done without any mistakes. Good job! As you always do. Here I attach part 5-2 for you. Please look through. Also, later today please expect the instructions for the part time project. I got a green light for you this morning.got you approved for the part time project.
Here I attach the manual which explains how to apply for the payment which you will use to purchase the equipment.
Please read carefully and let me know if everything is clear.
As we start the project, you will receive the payment first and only after that you will process the purchase order.
I will have the DF Transportation account access data and the Equipment department instructions/specification later today, will forward everything to you with the last part of instructions. Meanwhile, I need you to look through the manual
and make sure you understand the procedure. I also attach two examples for two different banks, but the procedure is similar for all major banks.
The only thing I need you to do is make sure your current balance meets the criteria, has to be at least $3,000. The manual gives a definition of Current balance, please read.
Please note that you WON'T have to involve any money of your own or share any sensitive information (account or ssn numbers) for this project.
Waiting for you to let me know you understand the procedure and your current balance is over required minimum. I could apply for the rest of project details then.
[ALL OF HIS FORMATTING IS OFF. ]
i'M sorry our accountant manuals are always very vague. You don't have to use your money for the project or share your private info. All funds are received BEFORE you make any purchases, you don't need to involve your personal funds. It still has to be one of your credit cards you use for the project with current balance over $3,000. But you will only use it to receive the payment from DF Transportation account. It may be any card with purchases made for over $3K. Current (outstanding) shows the amount you owe to the bank, the amount you already spent. You will just use your current (outstanding) balance as an empty space for the payment from Direct Freight. You will pay off your current balance with the company's account information and use the payoff amount to charge your card for new purchases. Money are paid upfront, so you receive the payment first and after that proceed with purchases. You don't need to use your money and/or share your private info, instead our accountants will provide company account numbers to you, you could apply for the funds then. Please let me know if you have any specific Q's in regards to the procedure or
if you want me to apply for the rest of instructions/details.

I emailed him I didnt have any credit card balance as I havn't been working and he said: The current balance is not a problem, the required one can be easily generated. Please let me know what current balance you have now and I will ask our Equipment department to make the Purchase Order fit your balance.
[Yeah I bet!]
Here is what I sent"
I only have a debit card, not a credit card. Since I lost my job in 2010, I got rid of regular credit cards as they always eat up your cash. So I guess I am no help.
Then his wonderful, encouraging emails stopped and i got this: "here is study #5-3 attached for you, please look through." here is 6-1 study for you. Please confirm you got parts
5-1 (Sent on Monday 9/10)
5-2 (Sent on Tuesday 9/11)
5-3 (Sent on Wednesday 9/12)
6-1 (Sent Today 9/13)
6-2 (Will send Tomorrow)
THIS SCAN IS ELABORATE, THEY JUST WANT YOUR MONEY!
I had thought this initially , but knowing I had no money, I knew they could scam me on anything, but not obtaining a $75,000 job that they were quote training me for.....
so does anyone else have David's emails?
