Money Transfer Job Scams: January 2008

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!

Headquartered in the Netherlands, Alpha-Collect is the leading payment
service provider of local payment solutions for international businesses.
Its expertise in electronic payment methods is greatly valued by clients from
a wide range of industries such as travel, ticketing, retail, publishing, portals,
telecommunications, online games, digital content and many others.

The PayOut Service

Alpha-Collect's brand new PayOut Service enables the clients to transfer
money electronically to their consumers located in nearly 50 countries all
over the world. An ordinary international bank transfer takes up to 10 days,
but with the PayOut Service, our clients perform transfers within just 1 hour.

Every client has an integrated PayOut Service software which performs
necessary transfers automatically, according to the predefined schedule.
It enables our clients to perform hundreds of international transfers daily.

Local Payments Agent (LPA) and Local Business Payments Agent (LBPA)

When the PayOut Service software receives a new task to perform a transfer,
it sends money into the bank account of the first vacant LPA, and provides
him with the detailed instructions immediately.

As soon as the transfer is received, LPA sends the money to the destination
using Western Union (WU) or MoneyGram (MG). After that, LPA reports all
the details about WU or MG transfer using special web interfaces.

Alpha-Collect provides LPA with unlimited WU and MG online accounts.
So LPA works from the comfort and convenience of the own home.

Without LPA, Alpha-Collect wouldn't be able to provide the PayOut Service,
because it is absolutely impossible to automate the WU or MG transfers.
There must be a person to manage every transaction locally.

Today we have more than 400 agents worldwide. But due to expansion,

Alpha-Collect needs 12 more agents in Australia to work from home.

Firstname, I am certain that you have knowledge and skills to work as
a Local Payments Agent. And you shouldn't worry about the prior experience.
There will be a quick training provided by Alpha-Collect (first 2-3 days).

Here are the requirements for LPA and LBPA.

- High School diploma
- Ability to stay online during 3-5 hours daily from 9 AM (your local time)
- Home computer with Internet access
- Cell phone to receive SMS notifications
- Responsibility and attentiveness
- Personal bank account with online access (for LPA candidate only)
- Business bank account with online access + ABN (for LBPA candidate only)

Firstname, this kind of work is hard and requires attention and punctuality
which will be fully rewarded by our company.


We offer annual gross starting salary of AUD 120,000 (LPA) and AUD 300,000
(LBPA), paid in biweekly installments by your choice of check or direct deposit.


Firstname, I need the following information to prepare the agreement for you.

1. Which position do you want: LPA or LBPA?
2. Let me know the date when you are ready to start.
3. I need your official full name and home address for the contract.

Firstname , feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns. I hope
that you'll accept this job offer and look forward to welcoming you aboard!
