I received the below email regarding this position. Is this a scam? I went online and located the company's information and found an Youtube video.

The company requires you to go through training for 30 days before actually offering a position as Project Manager.

The domain was registered in early October, by someone who is using a Ukrainian privacy protection service to hide their identity. There is no legitimate reason for a real business to hide their identity in such a way.

It is an employment scam of some sort, although from the email you have received, I can't tell exactly what the scam is.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

It claims to be founded in Hong Kong in 2006 and have an office in Germany, yet it was registered in 2016 and is entirely in English. This site is in the process of being reported for fraud.

I also received a called from Rachel Reed and spoke to her. I can't figure out the scam yet either, supposedly they have open an office in Chicago and are opening one in Houston. Basically you submit homework assignments for grading and a project assignment.
#313204 by AlanJones Mon Nov 28, 2016 11:12 am
The use of meaningless "assignments" is common among employment scams as a way of seeing how well the victim has bought in to the scammer's lies - it is likely that at the end of the trial period, the job that you initially applied for is no longer available, but they will offer you another one, which will involve receiving funds or packages for them - i.e. turning you into a money launderer or re-shipping mule. When the other victims of the scam realise they've been scammed, it would be your details that they pass to the authorities.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Here is the latest letter from Genesis Venture capital. They want to transfer funds from their "corporate account" to my debit/credit card for purchase.

[email protected] (Charles Payne)

Good morning XXXX

I have got you approved for the part time project, it will only take 2 steps.

First Step: you will receive money FROM the corporate account TO your credit card;
Second Step: you will make a purchase of required equipment according to the list of specification(your Purchase Order).

Here I attached the Instructions and FAQ file for Step 1.
There you'll find how to apply for the payment which you will use to purchase the equipment.
Please read both documents carefully and let me know if everything is clear.
As we start the project, you will receive the payment first and only after
that you will be able to execute the purchase order.

Meanwhile, I need you to look through the manual and make sure you understand the procedure.
The manual gives a definition of Current balance, please read it as well.
Please note that you WILL NOT have to involve any money of your own or share your personal information (account numbers, card number, ccv code, etc.) for this project.
Waiting for you to let me know you understand the procedure - I could apply for the rest of project details then.
I will forward banking information and the equipment specification once I get your confirmation that everything is clear with first part of instructions.

In case you need any more information from my end, I'm ready to provide you so.

Thanks for posting the new email.

Here is the latest letter from Genesis Venture capital. They want to transfer funds from their "corporate account" to my debit/credit card for purchase.


They will either "flash" the money by depositing funds and then recalling the money leaving you in debt for the purchases that you made. The other possibility is phishing your card information so they can make fraudulent purchases.

Another email from this fake company.

If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart or mentions Cameroon

Now that we know what kind of scam it is (which will go in the next report), the best thing for you to do now is ignore all further communication attempts from the scammer. If you have told the scammer your card number or connected it to his account, talk with the fraud department of your bank (or whoever issued the card) and get a new one with a different account number.

Hello everyone I have recently been contacted with a very similar scam from a company called ITP CONSULTING GROUP. They also contacted me about a position with their company as a sourcing manager. They are very good with making this seems like it legit by getting you to fill out apps and take test. They then have you do what they call assignments by reading literature about supply chain management then have you even take tests. Once they think that you think they are legit they will then run the first scam buy having you purchase Apple gift cards but here comes the tricky part. They actually send you information on how to transfer balance from "their account" to your account. They tell you, you dont have to use any of your money and they will pay off any debt you may have on your credit card. They only want to use a credit card no debit card. So then they send a pdf on how to do a balance transfer from their account to yours. Then ask you to buy about $10k worth of Apple gift cards then send them the PIN. Once I told them I could not complete this they totally stopped all communication and fell off the radar. The person I was in contact with name was DAVID SCOTT I even spoke with him on the phone and he reassured me everything was fine. His english was really good and he had a slight European Accent. They make this scam look like a real job if you have any information on this please post. This is a really well manicured scam and Im sure they have already gotten a lot of people with it just because it is very polished , if ITP CONSULTING GROUP has scammed you please let me know.
