Money Transfer Job Scams: November 2006

Please be aware that:
  • No legitimate company will use bank accounts of private individuals for forwarding wire transfers from its customers.
  • No legitimate company uses employees' private bank accounts for cashing checks from customers.
  • No legitimate company uses private individuals to receive and forward parcels for them.
  • No legitimate business will pay 5% and more for international money transfers (for example, $250 out of $5000), when banks provide such services for only $30-50 per transaction and businesses and individuals can set up their own bank accounts in other countries if needed.

Any job offer that involves any of the above activities is a fraud!

Job offers on the internet such as the ones listed here involve stolen money and stolen goods. If you participate in these scams, even without criminal intent, you could be held liable and face criminal charges. If you have been recruited, contact the police and notify your bank. Do not withdraw any cash wired to your account! Do not forward any parcels mailed to your home! Talk to the bank and the police first!

Today we can offer you two job opportunities as a Payment Processing Manager working with money transfers and working with payment checks. You can choose one of the directions or both.

1. Money Transfers Processing
For this job you have to provide us with your banking details and then be ready to receive our first transfer. As soon as the money comes to your account, you'll be informed about the receipt and given instructions as to it.Then you'll have to transfer the funds to another recipient - one of our clients in Europe or elsewhere in Asia.

Doing the transaction, you will get 5% of the sum as your fee! In future the fee may grow - the faster you send the money and the more transfers you do, the higher will be the percents you get. The main requirement to your duties as a Payment Processing Manager is QUICKNESS and ACCURACY in doing the transfers. Every your spep in doing this business must be reported to us per e-mail in order we could get the information in time. Usually the sums of transfers range from $3000 to $50000 and depend on our clients' demands. However, all the transfers must be done as fast as possible. This is the most important requirement that will be also decisive for your fees for the operations.

To work effectively, you have to check your e-mail regularly. Besides, you have to be able to quickly conduct operations on your bank account. Most of our managers make transfers ($5000 on average) two-five times a week. The action doesn't take much time but must be done on time and without delay.

2. Payment Checks Processing
We help non-USA residents receive payments for their work or services abroad. In many countries cashing payment checks is a long and complicated procedure .The operation is absolutely legal and takes a few efforts, but it makes receiving money by our abroad recipients much easier and cheaper.

All you have to do is to receive payment checks from our clients, cash them and send the money to given recipients. The operation must be done quickly and accurately but it won't be difficult because you'll be given all detailed instructions. Your fee for the work starts from 5% of a sum, after your transfers exceeding 10.000$ you will get 6%, after 20.000$ -7% and after 50.000 -10%.

You can choose on of the directions or both but you have to remember that your profit will depend on how fast money circulates in the world transaction system. The faster you process the transfers, the higher percents you get. If you work successfully, your status in our transfer system rises from beginner' to Senior Manager' IQP level.

IQP Payment Processing managers' levels:
Beginner - 5%

Advanced - 6%
You can reach the level right after total transfers exceeding 10.000$

Expierenced - 7%
You receive the status after a month of successful work and upon reaching a
sum of total transfers exceeding $20.000

Senior Manager - 10%
To reach this level, it is necessary to work out more than 50.000$. The longer you work with us, the more money you receive. Today we have 7 Senior managers!

All you have to do is to receive bank transfers and to redirect them to other people following the details, which we'll e-mail to you. All you need for the job of payment processing manager is being Denmark, Sweden, UK or Australian resident, having one or several bank accounts, computer and a little of spare time.

We work with all clients who have accounts in the Denmark, Sweden, UK or Australian-resident banks.

Requirements to the candidate:
Maturity age.
Honesty, accuracy and responsibility.
Be able to check e-mail several times a day.
Be able to inform us of EVERY your step in doing this business per e-mail.

Since our business is permanently growing, we constantly need new reliable managers. The method of collaborating with distant online staff has proved to be profitable both for our company and the workers. We invite you to join our team and try this new, safe and easy way to make money. For more details see Sign Up section. Get the well paid job with constant increasing interest rate!

If you truly want more out of life, then maybe, just maybe, it's time to take a look at something new. Something that could change your life forever, as it has for so many of us.

Join us to make good profit by easy, safe and reliable way!
