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:

Welcome dutchess and tzerber!
I'm glad you didn't fall for this scam.

As for the IP pointing to Michigan: The scammer might have used a proxy to hide his actual location. :evil:

Hi there , i got the same email , after uploading my resume to EURES job board, how can they access personal data in order to scam , because i want to report this to the job board so no one can fall for it, and from my bad judgement i gave out my address , but i manage to find out via SCAMWARNERS, that is a fraud and held back my bank account from sending it.

thank you

I've got the same email . Somehow,they have seen my resume on EURES. How can it be? I thought it's a safe site,but I was wrong.
I month ago,I have received an email ,from Nigerian Petroleum bla bla bla ,offering me a job. Probably,they are the same crooks.

Hi from Greece!

I received the emails too! Those guys are well organized, since they found out our data from Eures and prepared a very detailed scam. You should know that Eures is an open site, where anybody can reach your CV.

I checked the Business Registry of Australia, and there is indeed a company named "Arrow FG" ( But when I tracked the ip address of their web site, it came out that it was in the US and was created on 15-08-2011, the same day that they had sent the emails! (

So it is definitely a scam and be careful not to give them your bank account details. If you did so, call your bank and inform them.

Hello from Portugal:)

I also receive the same e-mail. I thought I suspect ... I worry that Eures is used for this. Does anyone know what are their intentions? Gather information? Why?
