Fake charity site and involved in a job scam. Posting it here so it gets picked up in web searches. They have several job postings currently on the internet. Hopefully the poor use of the English language will be a warning sign for some people.

It looks like the same scam was operating under this name last year: International Children's Charity Center

They are using a term called "Fair Mail" and here is a description from the website:
now we embody it in the FAIR MAIL proceeded by Children’s Charity Center. Every person in the world have a choice now: to send a mail via usual parcel forwarding company (such as FedEx), or to choose a Fair Mail. Fair Mail costs 10% more, but when you choose Fair Mail you know for sure this extra 10% will be used to give a relief to ill baby or to buy shoes to orphans. 10% of every Fair Mail is transacted via Children’s Charity Center as a direct help to those who really need it.

We are working on getting the site taken down.
