This is what I receive after sending my resume to a job posted in Monster.com:

(Blankenbergestraat 8, 1066 TK Amsterdam,Netherlands)
Thank you for interest in our company representative position.


Your job will consist mostly in dealing with our U.S. creditors. Some of our creditors prefer to cover our bills by local checks, we are unable to collect on the checks in timely manner, as the checks take up to 2 months to clear. This delay is caused by lengthly clearing process of U.S. Checks through Dutch banks.

Our business requires fast cashflow, and therefore we are seeking a representative that can process local U.S. checks for our company. It is easier for us to pay commission to our representative and have the money working the next day then wait for 2 months.

You will have to receive the payment from our creditor, deposit it into your account and once cleared, forward the amount of payment, less your commission and other transfer expenses, to us. You will forward the money by Western Union, which is the fastest way to send money worldwide, to one of our branches in Europe. We have branches in almost all European countries.

We expect 3-4 payments a month to be forwarded through the representative, totaling no more then $5,000.00 each.

All applicants must pass a background check, must have a bank checking account in good standing(no negative balance). Also, successful applicants must sign a Representative Service Contract with us.

The representative, pursuant to the contract, will not be liable for any taxes in the United States. You will be transferring the money received from our creditors out of the country and therefore will not be liable for capital gains taxes. You will only be liable for your normal income tax on the commission received.

Further in his employment with our company, the representative can take on other responsibilities and will be considered to be hired as a permanent representative of our company in the United States.

Our beginning wage will depend on a number of transactions that the representative will assist us in. The fee paid per transaction is US $600, plus all if any fees encountered during the transaction. The fee is fixed at US $600, and does not depend on the size of the transaction. We expect a minimum of 3 transactions a month. At first would like to limit it to one transaction. When we see that everything is going fine, we will increase the number of transactions and start normal work. There is no regular wage, the wage depends on the number of transactions executed. The number of transactions depends on how fast and accurate you will perform. We expect high level of communication, fast feedback and accurate situation reporting.

There are no investments required from you. If in the process of work you will encounter any additional expenses, they will be covered by us from the checks that you will receive from our creditors.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, FEEL FREE TO ASK THROUGH brendan.rutgers@farmacieumans.com

If you do not have any other questions, and you would like to apply for this position please take the following steps:

1. Print, fill in and sign the attached contract.

2. Fax it to our USA Fax number 1-404-529-4466 or our Dutch Fax number +31-20-524-1629. You must include one type of picture ID. It could be your driver's license, passport or any official identification document.
If you don't have any of these items on hands right now (if they are lost/stolen or waiting for replacement), then your latest phone or utility bill is also ok.
