Money Transfer Job Scams: February 2009

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!

Zeus Financial Pty Ltd
17 Belmore St, Burwood,
NSW, 2134, Australia.

my name is Michael Brown and I am Zeus Financial Pty. Ltd. Staff manager.

offer this job to you.

Here is the information about Payment Protection Agent job position:

Job Basis
As the basis of our service is to provide payment protection deals on the
Internet we need payment protection agents all over the world. Attracting
clients from different corners of the world we should have our agents
everywhere in order to be able to provide instant payment protection
solutions (in-state bank transfers take no more than a few hours). We
engage new technologies to deal with thee-document exchange, which makes
the process reliable and safe. Our servicedeals only with the paperwork,
leaving the financial part (accepting funds on your personal bank accounts
from the buyers, and routing them to the sellers according to our
instructions afterwards) for you. We can't bare the financial
responsibility because in today's world of extremely fast solutions it is
time that is of significant importance to our clients. Having an escrow
agent in every country we can quickly transfer funds inside the country
without wasting time on the international bank transfers, and continue our
rapid growth rather than overwhelming our own bank account with inbound
and outbound transactions leading to severe hold times and probably
service interruption.

Career and Benefits
Your main task will be receiving money transactions to your personal bank
accounts and forwarding them to the next party of the payment protection
process, according to our instructions. You will benefit from the
commissions, which are 5-7% of each transaction and depend on the quantity
of completed transactions and the speed of your work + you will be paid a
basic salary of 1500 GBP per month. For your convenience there will be no
paychecks, your commission will remain in your account after every
successfully completed transaction. The money transfer fee is not included
in your commission, meaning that you will deduct it from the received
amount, not from your commission. Also you receive 5-7% of the transaction
amount. Normally the amounts that we process vary from 2,000GBP to
10,000GBP, but can go higher on special occasions.

If you are ready to proceed, please provide us with your AVAILABLE phone
number and send it back to our Staff Manager at
