Even without giving the scammer password control of your bank account the potential damage a fraudster could do you is potentially horrific. I don't want to give the scammers ideas but divulging this level of detailed personal information would enable them to take over your life to an extent you could not imagine. They can perform fraud and crime using your identity and you'd have an awful job trying to prove you aren't the criminal.

Some of the things they might do could have a devastating effect on your life for years to come and you may not immediately get to know all they've done in your name.

CAR ADVERTS - If a car seller mentions escrow - he's scamming you Never ever for any reason pay anything until you have seen and inspected the vehicle

Welcome to Scamwarners tonylee16,

Yes, it is a scam job offer. The scammer wants you to be a money mule. He will ask you to receive stolen money in your bank account and transfer it back to via Money Gram or Western Union. He may even ask you to pick up Western Union or Money Gram transfers.

The bad problem is the scammer is using a fake name and will never be caught. The person who accepts this fake job will be the only person caught by Law Enforcement.

Please contacta moferatorstor if you have a question or information about this post.



Please do not tell the scammer he is posted here.

Hello,

Here is additional information about the vacancy with Consolidated Holdings Limited.

Well, let me tell you a little bit about our company and what we do and how the role of a Financial Support Agent comes into play.
Main goal of our company is to help our clients find the necessary freelancers in various fields such as IT, legal or accounting.

The WAY the process works is: a client comes to us with a specific project and our job is to match them with the best available freelancer in our database. Once that's completed, we negotiate prices, deadlines and etc.

Your role would come in whenever there is a need for an IMMEDIATE payment between the client and the freelancer. In most cases we process all payments via regular bank transfers, however if a deadline is being pushed, that's when we use the financial forwarding coordinators, to ensure that the final product of the freelancer reaches the client on time.

Our main goal, within the company, is to match our clients needs with the best freelancers available, world wide.

Job title is Payment-Processing-Agent.

Job requirements:

Legitimate? Highly doubtful. If it is a respected brokerage firm, the website would not have been created at the end of April 2014.

Welcome to Scamwarners Investabug,
You are correct, this is a scam where they are recruiting money mules for a money laundering scheme. Legitimate companies to not use employee bank account to process payments.

If you have any additional questions about this scam please ask.

The website is in the process of being reported for fraud.

It is ALWAYS a scam
