Money Transfer Job Scams: March 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!

We are a strategic consultancy company headquartered in USA with offices throughout the world. We offer a unique blend of services and products that enable our clients to leverage technology investments to achieve business objectives. We integrate processes, technology, information, and people in ways that speed up and improve business, reduce costs, maintain regulatory compliance, and leverage information throughout the enterprise.


ULTERA GROUP LTD. capabilities span a broad range of services and solutions across both business and technology disciplines. Our services include marketing finance audit, stock forecasting and econometric modeling, benchmarking performance, and more.


Consulting and Advisory (CAS) offerings allow you to stay focused on your business and functional goals as we act as your agent in evaluating the myriad of existing technologies, and applying the best practices available. As a vendor-neutral resource, our recommendations are based on various technologies’ ability to meet your business criteria.
The primary benefits of engaging CAS are:
- Cost-effective strategic planning
- Effective asset utilization through consolidation, virtualization and manageability strategies
- Convert Business Impact Analysis (BIA) into actionable DR/BC plans for IT
- IT remediation and risk reduction through gap analysis and recommendation development
- Improved strategic vision and technology selection through ROI/TCO analyses
- Adoption of new IT process models for improved efficiencies
- Risk-mitigated transition to new IT services (e.g. managed or outsourced services)

Think of CAS as analogous to the architectural engineering and planning services undertaken prior to building or renovating a home; a 5-10% investment up front can save many times that amount in waste, delays or cost overruns.

- saved a New England Hospital $150K (compared to imaging vendor’s proposal) in storage by defining the core storage and data needs and generating an RFP
- saved a biotech research firm $100K in Tier I storage capital expenditures by identifying and migrating stale or duplicate data
- improved data management efficiencies at an academic institution as they transitioned from a mainframe to Unix ERP
- saved a major bank $100K’s in fines by providing a roadmap for DR as required by compliance regulations benefited numerous corporations in designing resilient, scalable storage architectures now in production for years
- saved US government entities millions of dollars in gained efficiencies through consolidation

ULTERA GROUP LTD. has provided consulting and advisory engagements to nearly a hundred Fortune 5000 companies since 1997. We have streamlined processes and improved technology vision and strategy while reducing potential risk and cost. With more than 60 ITIL Foundation-certified associates and several ITIL master consultants, we have saved our customers potentially millions of dollars in capital expenditure and process efficiency through strategic solution development.

We rely on strong core values as the building blocks for our success. Basic human values -- honesty, respect, and genuine care for people -- are the foundation. From these values springs a culture that always places the customer first; a culture driven by commitment, dedication to excellence, and the persistence to add maximum value to all that we do. As a result, we:

- Place a premium on teamwork, openness, and accountability.
- Encourage individual growth that balances professional achievement with personal relationships.
- Strive to create an environment that is both fun and free from politics.
- Embrace change and long-term thinking.
- Drive results through rapid execution.
