Impact Group Inc
now first off this sounds like a money laundering scam, the website looks real but its in Taiwan, hard to track down.
the person on the phone goes to voice mail no one answers the phone, you can go to the website and check it out, it was done by a pretty competent web master, has good links, decent references but when you read on how the company works, what they want you to do, it makes all the bells go off
first they wire money into your bank account (you have to provide them with access so they can "see that the deposit went into the account". Then you take the money out and western union it to who they tell you to do so, and you keep 8% of it.
then they will also pay you 2300 the first month, after that they pay you 3000 per month, if you are hired full time, Hello No one is going to pay anyone they havent met or seen 2300 a month to handle their money for them.
This is all sceptical, I would imagine if you did this after the first month you see nothing and they are gone, and you are left holding the bag on a money laundering charge, aiding and assisting with stolen or illegal money. After of course they have drained your bank account of what is in it.
BE WARY OF THEM AND CHECK THEM OUT.
if it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck its a duck,
DON'T FALL FOR THIS SCAM.
