What infromation are you basing you accusations of scam on? Sure, this sounds a bit peachy. However, have you researched it or are you just going by a gut feeling?
#74355 by Dotti Wed Nov 16, 2011 9:13 pm
There is NO DOUBT that this is a scam.

There are actually several things that tell us it is a scam, but in reality the very fact that they are offering to hand "company money" to perfect strangers with no purchasing experience based on limited online communication is an indicator right there. Real businesses do NOT operate in this way, period.

No gut feel involved. I suggest that you start your research at the following links; ... b-or-scam/ ... -fraud.asp

And to a slightly lesser extent, here:

Many of these scammers do "phone interviews" in addition to online communication. With cheap services such as skype and many voip options, it has become a pretty easy thing to do. It doesn't change the fact that they are scammers. This is not a legitimate job, period. There are no offices in the US, there is no legitimate company hiring random strangers to buy things for them. Any legitimate business that started trusting strangers in another country with their money would be out of business in a hearbeat, as word would get out and "employees" would soon walk off with their money and their merchandise.

This "established" company also registered its domain name less than 2 weeks ago, for one year, and immediately started hunting for targets. Another typical scammer tactic. Start quickly, hit the ground running, and don't register for the long term because we know our scam will ultimately be revealed anyway.

We do as much as we can to get the word out there. We try to help educate and inform, and help others to avoid being scammed. I can ask a baiter to get a little more info, but nobody here is going to get involved in an illegal scheme and risk their own reputation (and freedom) just to prove a point.

I understand how tempting this offer can be, and I can understand how much someone may want to give it a shot--of course, that's why the scammers are using this approach. But it is still a scam, and it can lead to some serious trouble.

Global Trading Associates is indeed a scam. This is supposed to be a company that is based in Asia and is trying to expand to the U.S. Jane Green is your "supervisor". She states she is based out of New York. Please do not do business with them. They give you a bank account on which to pay off your credit cards. Once the credit cards are paid off, then you go purchase items on your card, keeping a percentage for your commission. After a month, they are to send you a company card in which to do your purchases. The month will never come. The the payments will be rescinded on your card and it will be closed out. From then on, you will never be able to get in contact with "Jane Green" again.

This is exactly what Global Trading with Jane Green as the 'supervisor' do! I am out over $22,000 in just one week of 'working' for them. They use Bank of America to send the fake tranfers, and get away with it because the bank isn't going after them and the credit card company only wants the money back from the victim, me in this case.
If anyone is curious how elaborate they are, I recorded milage each day, was told also to keep all receipts, etc.. I sent copies of ALL emails, reciepts, everyhting to my local police. Every lawyer I've talked to calls it a 'bad case' to prosecute too, so the bad news is, getting the word out seems to be the only recourse so far-the good news is it seems the word IS getting out.
To make sure less people fall for this, it works like this. They offer to send funds to your credit card, and they DO NOT ask for your credit card information, or for you to send them any money. Then you act in the capacity of a purchasing agent, and all the funds seem to transfer properly while you purchase Ipad2 G3's for them, using their money (so you think). By the time suspicion sets in at least 1 or 2 transactions have been made, and you are out at least 10-20 grand, when the funds start coming back as returned in about a week (even though Bank of America showed the funds as 'clearing' in the first 24-48 hours).
