Why we need Finance Assistants

When buying-selling operations via the Internet are concerned, the buyer and the seller don't know each other and are placed in different corners of the world. Therefore, it is important both to the buyer and the seller for their transaction to be made safely. Payment security means receiving money concerning the transaction by a reliable, experienced, impartial person - our Finance Assistant. He will hold all the money until all the terms of the deal are satisfied and only then release them to the intended receiver. Please, visit our web-site for more information.

Having a Finance Assistant in every country we can quickly transfer funds inside a 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 possible service interruption. It is time that is of significant importance to our clients.

The main task of the Finance Assistant will be receiving money transactions to any bank account he would like to use for the purposes of this job; and then forwarding these transactions to the next party of the process according to our instructions. Finance Assistant will be processing approximately 1-2 transactions per week.

If you are ready to proceed, you have to confirm your intention by filling & signing the Employment Agreement. You may download it here:

Thank you for posting this information, vlad. Good job spotting the scam. The website involved, arrowfg.com , is one set up by the scammers to try to appear legitimate. It was just registered on August 15, for one year. We will make sure it is added to a database of fraudulent sites kept by aa419.org and reported to it's hoster/registrar.

This part of the email is one HUGE red flag:

The main task of the Finance Assistant will be receiving money transactions to any bank account he would like to use for the purposes of this job; and then forwarding these transactions to the next party of the process according to our instructions. Finance Assistant will be processing approximately 1-2 transactions per week.


No legitimate job ever asks you to receive payments into your own accounts.

Please let us know if you have any questions about the scam.

Have you sent a payment to a scammer with Western Union and now realize it's a scam? If the payment has not been picked up, you can cancel it immediately! 1-800-448-1492
