Hi,

I recently received the below e mail:

Hi,

Please read the job description
If you are interested, please fill in the registration form at our 
web-site – www.pw-shop.com – section «Vacancy» (Wine Merchant), and a 
manager will phone you back within the next couple of days.
First of all let me say that we are the wine and drinks retailing 
company with the head office based in Prague, Czech Republic. We have 
also offices in Germany, Italy, Poland, and the Ukraine. As there have 
been many orders from our customers in the UK recently, we decided to 
open the office in Great Britain. The first office in the UK will be 
opened in the middle of October, but we are starting to hire the 
representatives throughout the United Kingdom now, so that by the time 
the office opens we can have a fully trained team.
Let me say that the office opens in London, but you will have to go 
there once a month, to submit the reports. Most of the time you will be 
dealing with customers by phone and by e-mail, if the customer is 
located in your area you may arrange a meeting. Among our customers we 
have restaurants, shops, bars and sometimes private individuals.
So basically the job is to sell wines. First you will be dealing with 
our already existing customers in the UK, and trying to expand our 
market a little bit.
If everything goes fine our first job agreement with you will be signed 
for the trial period of two months. As there is no office in the UK yet, 
you will keep in touch with our managers by phone and e-mail. The 
managers will be contacting you practically every day from the office in 
Czech Republic, and during the first month you will get acquainted with 
how the company works. You will be taking orders, arranging meetings, 
deal with inquiries from the customers by phone and by e-mail and read 
literature about wines that we sell. If the trial period goes fine, we 
will sign the contract with you for one year as soon as the office opens 
in London.
From time to time you might even deal with finances if the order is 
successful. The thing is that sometimes there are some situations, when 
there is an urgent order, but it takes more than 5 working days to 
complete international bank transfer. So sometimes it is easier, when a 
client sends the payment straight to our local representative, and the 
representative sends it to the office of delivery by one of the money 
transfer systems. For these purposes, corporate bank account will be 
opened for you as soon as the office opens, before that time you might 
be asked to receive some small payments from the customers you deal with 
to your bank account.
During the first month the job will be taking about 3 hours per day, 5 
days a week. After the trial it may be taking more time. The salary 
during the trial is 1900 GBP a month + 3% commission for every order 
taken, after that it is 2450 pounds + 5% commission.
We also have part-time alternative for the same position after the trial
Please confirm if you would like to proceed with the application process 
by filling in the form at the web-site. We will contact you by phone 
within the next couple of days to conduct interview.
If you have any questions about the position, terms or conditions, 
please do not hesitate to contact me directly, I will help you at any 
step of recruiting process.
Best Regards

Yes, it is a scam. Red flags (one year registration, Web site six days old.)

No company will ask an internet stranger to use their personal bank account to receive customers money. Only scammers do this. Real company's have their own bank accounts and accepts credit cards.

This scammer is asking you to money launder for him. He will have other scam victims send you money and then have you forward it to him. In this scam you will be the only that Law Enforcement will find.

Please post the email headers of the email. In my signature is a link to find email headers.

I have had the same email and have been in contact with them. I have had several phone calls and emails regarding this. I feel the same it seems to good to be true and therefore have not given out any bank details as of yet. I am not really sure if it is a scam or not and seems to good to be true but at the same time if its not a scam seems to good an opportunity to turn down. Have you spoke with them at all?
#219996 by AlanJones Mon Sep 22, 2014 1:12 pm
It is a scam - please read the post above yours by our Moderator Bryon.

There is no point speaking to them, they will just lie to you and tell you it is legitimate. Just delete the email and don't respond to them and save yourself a LOT of trouble later on, when the authorities come looking for you for fraud and money laundering.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Typical lie of the money mule scammer. Real companies open accounts in other countries for this purpose. The site is in the process of being reported for fraud.

The email looks like it was written by a Slav, as expected for a Czech, but the site is registered in China and hosted in Sweden.

Yeah I also got an email from them. I tried to check out whether or not it was a scam on the internet and I even dropped unproffesional hints during our corespondence via email and phone to see if it was legit cause I was still in doubt. But i found nothing about them being scammers so I signed up.

They sent me a contract of employment so i started to doubt that it was a scam. And then I filled out the Direct Deposit Form.....so yeah. Now I don't know what to do. If it's any consolation. The work they have asked me to do for them dosen't seem inciminating yet....and luckily I only told a few friends that i started "work" for them....Kinda embarrassed and a little pissed right now.

Advise your bank as soon as possible what has happened and ask that your account is changed so that no fraudulent funds can be transferred into it.

The initial tasks are just to see how compliant you are at following their instructions before they start using you as a money mule.

Delete all of their mails and do not respond to them and do not tell them that you know it is a scam.
