I got this email (see below), to make a long story short; I (unwittingly) agreed to "work" for this company, even did some research on the company their URL is http://pl-is-ltd.biz, they even sent me a Certification (can attach later if anyone's interested in seeing it). Anyway everything looked legit, I got a $3000.00 wire transfer into my bank well greendot card [it can accept incoming ACH transfers but will not allow out going debt ACH transfers]. That was yesterday when the money was put in my account (again they can put it in but can't take it out); the direct deposit (ACH transfer) did clear and is posted to my account. Kinda funny really IF it is a scam they just got scammed.
What makes me think it's a scam is
1. I'm suppose to take the money keep 5% for myself (Yep just like the check scam) and Western Union wire the remaining amount to Russia...
2. the guy was very persistence at trying to get me to withdraw the money when it was deposited and wire it...

This is a scam. This "company" claims to have been in business since 2006 but the domain was registered in the last two weeks.

Please contact your bank ASAP! In the US if you agree to a direct deposit into you account the transaction can be reversed. If you withdraw the money and send the payment via Western Union you will lose the money and will have to repay the bank.

There is no reason for a company to pay a third party to process there payments as legitimate international transactions take place daily.


The web site is in the process of being reported.

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon

Kinda what I figured, that's why the money is still sitting in the account. I have no intentions of withdrawing it.
Thanks

I have been contacted by these people too to work for them. I have sent in me application and have got an e-mail back, saying that I should have information and contract on Monday. After reading all information from this company, I began to wonder if this was ligit. So I have contacted my local BBB's and asked for help in finding out if this is ligit or not. I will not send anything back to this company until I hear from the BBB.
It was a lady called Sarah Novak that contacted me, I had sent my resume through SimplyHired, they were asking for an Escrow Agent. What started to worried me was if this company was ligit, then this lady didn't or does or know English grammar and writing a business letter....Ok, OK, they are supposed to be from Poland so one could forgive a little, but if this is a professional Company, e-mails should be worded professionally. Let me know what you think.....but I will wait on my local BBB before going any further. May be the FBI should be notified since this is International.

This is a scam. There is NO doubt about it.

In reality, there is no such thing as a legitimate company that hires individuals online to receive and transfer money, period. Legitimate companies do not funnel money through individual people's bank accounts either. They have business accounts.

"Working" for this "company" is a quick way to get you in very deep financial trouble as well as a whole mess of legal trouble, as any money moved through your account will have been stolen. By accepting and transferring that money, you become an accomplice to a serious crime.

The best thing you can do is cut off all contact with these scammers now.

Did you ever find out if its a scam or not? The company is after me to start and I am trying to keep them at bay until I can find pout. I did report them to the Federal Trade Commission, just not sure what they can or cannot do.

It is a scam. The company does not exist and both web sites have been taken down.
