So before registering, as I was encouraged to do in the email, I decided to do a little research. I goggled their web address and found very odd results. The below was copied from the following website:                                            www.robtex.com/dns/deconceptsny.com.html deconceptsny.com is a domain controlled by two nameservers on different IP networks. deconceptsny.com has one IP number , but the reverse is 195-88-190-29.ptrzonez.com . pfg-inc.eu , quroser.com , ptrzonez.com , ebay-exp.com , aboutpill.net and at least 36 other hosts point to the same IP. lixj.com , glqq.com , u9cn.com , sh18.com , pisx.com and at least 56 other hosts share nameservers with this domain. deconceptsny.com is ranked #2512223 world wide and is hosted on a server in Russian Federation. Trustworthiness, vendor reliability, privacy and child safety of this site is very poor.  Visit robtex.com/dns/deconceptsny.com to see for yourself how this smooth criminal operates. Whether you do or you don't visit...absolutely do not inquire about the job. Its a scam. I also found this info on the website referenced above: Dear Valued Customer, This message is a reminder to help you keep the contact data associated with your domain registration up-to-date.

I went to their web site and it looks extremely sparse for a legitimate business. For an interior design company they only have a few pics that shows their "work", and even those look generic and ripped off from web images on other sites.

I then did an IP search on their web site and found this:

The IP of the web site, 188.130.250.232, brings up numerous shared sites all seemingly emanating from Russia.

I was going to call "Jane" at the number she supplied in her email to verify, but I've been through this song and dance before and past experience was to be put on hold or asked to leave a message. All that did was suck some long distance minutes out of me and make the scammer richer.

Any company that has virtually the same script but revolving names and contact people (in this case they just changed the last name...lol) should be suspect, BBB "approved" or not.

Quality Graphic Installs, Inc. - new name - same people - same old crap!!!!!!!!!

AUTHOR: oldalleycat - (United States of America)

Here is their JOB discription from Nevada:

 

Hello,

 

thank you for your interest in our company.

 

Our company is looking for personnel for a Financial Representative position. Our company is engaged in interior design for offices, shops, restaurants and we need Financial Representatives in different areas to process the transactions from clients to independent designers. In other words our company is a middleman between clients and freelance designers; we are brokers of services and need independent method of payments. We have huge database of freelancers from Eastern Europe and Asia mainly. They offer perfect combination of affordable price and high quality. Considering the seriousness of the current situation in the US because of the recession (when people and companies reduce costs) our company has become very popular among our clients.

 

We are accredited by Better Business Bureau of Nevada state.

http://www.vegas-bbb.org/bbb_rated_acc_rpt.asp?bbbid=79010&tr=rated&lg=A-&ex=15

 

The client is supposed to pay money to designers via bank account or Western Union or Moneygram because the latter are located abroad. But theres a challenge. When customers transfer money they get contact information of our freelancers and some try to establish direct contact with them and we lose our income. So, the first reason to hire a Financial Representative is privacy protection. The second reason is time. We have constant money flow. It takes 2-3 hours to complete each transaction.

 

According to the contracts we have penalties if we are late with payments. A transfer to other countries is unpredictable; we never know exactly when the money is received for the following reasons: (1) there's a time difference, (2) the very banking systems may be different. If the transfer is made the same day and we can prove it by the confirmation papers, then we do not have penalties.

 

Therefore, the responsibilities of a Finance Manager are to process the payments from clients to designers who did the job. You will receive the payments directly into the business bank account (the money is sent by wire transfers), withdraw it and send to freelancers through Western Union or Money Gram. You will receive notifications of all the upcoming payments by phone and will receive instructions along with paperwork through via email. You will be working under our NY company name and tax ID. You'll work when the payment arrives. We'll communicate during normal business hours. If we have early payment I'll call you around 8 am. If we have late payment you may need to work till 8 pm., depends on how much time will it take you to make payments. If the payment arrives on Friday at 7 p.m. when the banking centers are closed you'll have to work on Saturday morning.

 

You'll receive $3000.00 on monthly basis in 30 days starting from the day when you process the first transaction. Besides, you'll receive 3% commission per each completed transaction. E.g., you process $5000.00 today and receive $150 commission with the next payment of $10000.00, and then you receive $300 commission with the next payment, etc. That is called a pay per completed transactions. You can make $5000.00 to $7000.00 per month. We cover incoming and outgoing transfer fees. You will pay the fees from the funds you are to transfer and then will provide the copies of the receipts. You are required to have a land line and a fax machine.

 

If you need to go on vacation youll need to give me a 2 week notice in advance. We will make and approve your schedule for each upcoming week.

 

Call me (702) 475-5744 if you would like to discuss the position.

If I'm not available by any reason, just leave me a message and I will get back with you as soon as I can.



Sincerely,

Jane Garcia
