The Job description

Our company provides interior and exterior design services. We work with independent designers. We have huge database of freelancers from Eastern Europe and Asia mainly. They offer perfect combination of affordable price and high quality. Considering the seriousness of the current situation in the US because of the recession (when people and companies reduce costs) our company has become very popular among our clients. Cheap prices attract new clients from other states.

Since we want to expand and we want to work in your state we need a Customer Service Manager, an individual who resides there and who will be able to perform certain functions for the company. Thus, we can reduce costs and again offer cheap prices to our clients. This is important for us because we will pay you a salary instead of spending money for the office rent and salary of the office manager. Therefore, you will work from home as independent contractor.

Another reason why we have the vacancy opened is time. Customer Service Position requires your full availability and mobility. We had small experience working without a Customer Service Manager, but received complaints from the clients. Since we are not physically present in your state we offered our clients to make payments directly to our freelances once the job was done. The clients did not like that idea because they had to spend 2-3 and sometimes 4 days to process payments. Here're the reasons why. We usually pay designers through Money gram or Wester Union(the fastest way to pay in cash). There're usually several designers working on the project. It takes time to get to the bank (traffic) and takes money (line). It takes time to get to Western Union (traffic) and send the money to every designer (line). The clients offered us to hire a Manager who could receive wire transfers and distribute the money between freelances. In that case we needed somebody who was in the same state. We do not want to lose our clients. On the contrary we want to improve our service.

Therefore, as a Customer Service Manager you need to have a bank account and correct home address to be able to receive wire transfers (cash) and package from the clients. Your responsibility is to withdraw that cash and send it through International Wire Transfer or Western Union or Money Gram to freelances.

You need to work though a regular checking account that you do NOT use. OR you can set up a brand new account in any Banks which located close of you. You will need to process the payments the same day and make reports for the clients for the completed deals. You will receive detailed instructions via email and over the phone as far as where, how much and how to send the money to.

You will be paid $3,000.00 per month on monthly basis and you will receive 5% commission from every completed payment. Besides, we cover incoming and outgoing transfer fees with every payment coming in.

Let me give you day-to-day duties and example of the payment process:
You should be on the phone from 8am through 6pm Mon-Fri. Whenever the client informs us that he made a wire transfer into your account we call you immediately. After that we send you instructions via email, you print it out or check it on your mobile phone, go to the bank, withdraw cash and send it through Western Union or Money Gram. Or you will send a international wire transfer in the case of A designer do not allow to accept Western Union or Money Gramm. You will have 2-3 transactions per week and can make up to $6,000.00 per month.

FOR EXAMPLE, today is your first transaction. The client sends $5,000.00. He informs us of that and we call you. We send you instructions via email and you check them. After that you come to the bank. Since we cover incoming fees you will leave $12 in the account (the bank will take it out automatically) and withdraw $4,988.00 in cash. You take your 5% - $ 250 and go to Western Union. When you come there you give $4,738.00 to the Western Union officer and tell him/her where and who to send the money to. They take their commission of $100.00 and give you a receipt with the details of the transaction. You send the copy to us or the client via fax or email.

In other words you receive commission after each payment and you will receive $3,000.00 in one month after your first transaction according to the agreement.

We do not work on bank holidays and weekends. We provide 30 days paid vacation per year. No other benefits. You will work as Independent Contractor (1099 Form).

There is a legitimate construction company at 3922 Estepona Avenue in Miami-Dade County, Florida, but it does not appear to have a website. was registered by someone in Salt Lake City, Pennsylvania, which is not anywhere near Florida. There is another fake site which HD found,, which looks identical except for the name and contact info (Innovat has no address). Both claim the same projects, and both have been reported for fraud.

I got an email from them about 30 mins after I used a credit check website! Am wondering if the spam timing is accidental, coincidental, or a direct result of the credit website interaction! Since the email addressed me by name .. I'm not feeling coincidence here! Should I be filing a complaint with that website?
