|+3 Financial Adviser |
The position you will hold will be that of a Financial Adviser and you will be able to perform your duties from home. Our company is based in UK.
We have recently opened a new series of facilities by means of which we sell electric chairs at low prices, intended for physically challenged persons. The offer includes several types of chairs, as follows: Electric Shoprider Power Wheelchair, Axiom 3 Medical Mobility Push Chair, Electric Liberty 512 power chair, Electric Jazzy 600 Q-chair, Invacare Power Wheelchair-Deluxe Model, Invacare Pronto 51 HD
The starting price varies between 900$ and 10,000 $ and we currently sell these products only to hospitals and clinics. We can send you a full catalogue via email, should you be interested.
The thing is this: although we accept several payments methods, some of our clients may only pay via check which is why we are faced with problems and delays in collecting the money. In order to receive the money fast and to avoid financial losses, we agreed for the checks to be sent anywhere in the USA to an address where same may be processed by you as consultant, and then the funds be sent via direct transfer to one of our offices. Thus, all you have to do is to receive the checks from our clients, collect them by using the existing personal bank account and subsequently send us the payment. All taxes and charges relating to money sending will be borne from our fund share. Bonuses will be applied in case you collect the checks on the same day or within two days and the bonuses decrease in value per each day elapsed from the reception. Before sending the money, you will withhold the 10% share.
This job may be described in four steps:
1. Receive payment from our customers. All checks will be written in your name. All checks are US checks, no international. You receive the payment from one of our clients in the USA, issued on your name, by USPS (reception signature not requested).
2. Cashing the checks by using the already existing personal account
3. Deduct 10% of the payment initial value on each payment processed + bonus for each check processed.
4. Send remaining funds after deduction of percentage/pay to us.
Bonuses apply as follows:
The check that is processed and sent on the same day confers you a $150,00 bonus in addition to the 10% part
The check that is processed and sent in less then 24 hours confers you a $100,00 bonus.
The check that is processed and sent in less than 48 hours confers you a $50,00 bonus.
After the first month, you will receive a check of 1,800 $ standing for you salary, and which includes all bills and costs required for the performance of duties, such as: fuel, transportation, transfer charges, banking fees, phone bill, etc.
Upon the completion of the second month, an additional bonus will be applied, by means of which you will receive 15% of our sales relating to the orders that you receive from your state. If everything goes well, as we expect it to, your income will increase of up to 1,300$ per week, plus 1,800$ per month.
Your salary will be paid as a â€œcashier checkâ€ at the end of each month, separately. I kindly thank you for you cooperation and you will receive the agreement today.

It's disgraceful how it's acepted to be posted on #careerbuilder", indeed.com, and all other supposed trustworthy job search engines.. I, amongst others who may be unemployed and are serioudly looking for a job, and then end up getting caught up in these scams , get exceited about finally getting one and that good because we're so desperate for a job we don't even think right and bright at that moment because we really need the job, a job, and then if we get caught up in these scams, it's our fault and WE end up getting in serious trouble with the laws and everything and these scammers get away with it so easily!!!! It's such a shame how no one hasn't yet come up with a scam-proof job vacancy posting in job search engines!!!Plus.. in good and supposed trustworthy sites like indeed, careerbuilder,trovit, trabalhar.com, and several others..

The first email they sent said it was careerbuilder.com, and that they had a position that fits my resume description. It said that they need a Virtual Assistant/Financier. They asked to respond if I was interested in the position and to learn more about it. The second email details what they supposedly sell, and how much they need me to handle their financial part of the business. Then it goes on to say that they need me to handle all their customers checks from the US and process them through MY OWN BANK ACCOUNT!!! That is when I knew this was a scam. No self-respecting company (family owned or no) would have ANY employee process business funds through a personal bank account...that's just bad business...not to mention ILLEGAL.
So, here it is. Both emails are copied below. I wanted to get this out there and let people know that these people ARE SCAMMERS!! Its disgraceful.
FIRST EMAIL We are looking for a virtual assistant who can direct and manage organization\'s financial and budget activities. To be successful for our role you must be able to demonstrate a proven ability in the field and be self motivated to get the job done within a team environment. Requirements for position: - High School Diploma; - Multi-tasking skills; - Detail oriented. Position: Financier Type: Online Office Reference Code: 6451218 Income: $1,500 a week Hours: 10-12 hours per week Please reply if you are interested. Thanks & Regards, Bentley Mobility Services Ltd. Â© Copyright 2014 Bentley Mobility Services Ltd. All rights reserved. SECOND EMAIL Hello, We are contacting you because we found your CV on careerbuilder.com. Please read the description below relating to the job we are offering, as well as a brief description of our company. We are a specialist supplier and installer of chairlifts, stairlifts and other mobility equipment. Our family run business has served Guildford, Portsmouth and the South of England for more than 25 years. We have the expertise to help overcome your mobility issues with quality equipment and professional installation service at your home. Bentley Mobility offers a wide variety of mobility equipment to meet your needs. We have mobility products to help you maintain independence at home, such as straight and curved stairlifts to fit every configuration, chairlifts, through floor lifts, rise and recline chairs, adjustable beds, scooters and power chairs for mobility around the house and away from home, as well as other mobility aids and bathing aids. We are an independent supplier of stair lift and mobility equipment. As such, we are not tied to any one manufacturer. This enables us to recommend a choice of products to provide the right solution for your mobility issues. We have stair lifts and other products at competitive prices to help you find quality equipment from all the leading manufacturers. The position we offer is that of a virtual assistant/accounts receivable, by which you will be able to assist us, through various financial instruments, in streamlining collections as a consequence to the sale of products and services. Even though you will not be directly involved in sales, the position we offer bears a substantial impact on the company profit by reducing or eliminating certain payment and transfer delays. Given the sensitive nature implied by financial information work, the salary and the bonuses are rather substantial. Just to give you a quick example: the series of state-of-the-art electric chairs, such as Axiom 3 Medical Mobility Push Chair, Electric Liberty 512 Power Chair, Power Wheelchair-Deluxe Model, Invacare Pronto 51 HD, with prices between 900 $ and 10,000$, for which bonuses of up to ten percent are cashed in for each order that you processed. We currently already have a significant number of transactions and many of these are honored by our clients by checks. In order for a check from the US to be collected in Europe, it requires up to 28 business days. This impediment greatly affects our collections and profit because of the very slow process imposed by banking legislation. Our clients may send checks anywhere in the US, and this is where you may help us by taking over the payments. All we need from you is an address to which we may redirect payments and for you to process such payments by using your personal bank account. Subsequently the funds get to our company by fast and direct transfer. All additional costs relating to transfer, fuel, transportation, charges will be deducted from our funds prior to sending. Further bonuses are applicable if the order is processed, transfer to our company included, in less than 24 hours from check reception. When our company receives an order, we send the product via USPS and instruct the client on the payment methods. Funds are available only after the product has been delivered and the client is satisfied. Our company accepts most payments methods, but some of our clients may only pay by check, therefore we need a collaborator to help us expedite such process. This job is perfectly legal, in compliance with international as well as US and EU legislation. Please find below a brief description of the job: This job does not have any hidden costs or charges that must be paid beforehand. Nobody in our company will ask you for personal data During this job you will not be directly involved in sales and you will not have to contact the clients Job duties: -to receive the checks at the address you made available -to process the checks through the personal bank account in order to expedite the process -to send the transfer to one of our offices, as per instructions Benefits: -deduction of the 10% your share for each received and processed payment -at the end of each month you will be granted a 1,000$ bonus if you have processed all orders in due time, such bonus to include phone bills, internet bills, fuel, etc, and it will be sent by a cashier check; Bonuses relating to check collection: -The check that is processed and sent on the same day confers you a $150,00 bonus in addition to the 10% -The check that is processed and sent in less than 24 hours confers you a $100,00 $ bonus. -The check that is processed and sent in less than 48 hours confers you a $50,00 $ bonus. For example you receive a check as payment for 3000.00 USD, you deduct your ten percent: 300.00 USD and then send to us the balance: 2700.00 USD. In the first month, you will receive around 15-20 orders under 3,000.00 USD to process and after checking your performance records during that first month the orders you will receive, may increase from 3,000.00 upwards to 6,000.00 USD. For example 20 transactions each around 3000.00 USD gives you a total income of 6,000.00 USD per month and after establishing a close co-operation with us you\'ll be able to operate with larger orders and you\'ll be able to earn more. Our company\'s plan in the near future is to open our own offices in the US and when that time comes you will be granted access to new options. The time that is currently estimated for this job amounts to only 3 to 7 hours per week. You will have enough time for a second full-time job. By working for us you will also be given access to a medical insurance, a 401K retirement plan and many other benefits that large companies provide on a regular basis, yet only after you have already worked for one month with us. The first month is deemed as a trial period for both parties.

Hello, My name is Glenda D. Morris and I found your resume on CareerBuilder and therefore, we presume you are actively looking for new openings. Below is the job description along with a brief introduction of our company.
About us : Chiltern Invadex provides a range of products designed to aid mobility and independence in the home, hospital and care environment. Privately owned following acquisition in 2009 by Electrovision Ltd., the company has 30 years experience in the supply of fully adapted showers, cubicles, shower chairs, seats, easy access baths and a range of moving and handling equipment including ceiling track hoists, mobile hoists and slings. JOB DESCRIPTION:

Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices you will be contacted to send payment to. (Payment is to be forwarded by Western Union Money Transfer).
You will receive 10% for every check processed in the first month. Within one month after receiving the first check you will get an extra $1,000 if you will manage to cash checks in a timely manner, also this bonus includes Internet bill, phone bill, gas/bus tickets.
We will support all bills you have to pay for your Internet and cell phone. PLEASE NOTE: This bonus will apply after one month starting the day you will receive the first check.
After two months of working with us, a secondary bonus will apply. You will get 15% from all our sales. If everything works as we will expect and it will, you will be able to do up to $1200 - $1300 per week + the bonus of $1,000 every month.

The salary will be paid to the Representative by cashier check.
New offices will be opened in the United States, as we recently launched our products to the US Market and most of our customers and we had a big impact working with US Customers. The estimated duration for opening the new offices is between 2 to 4 months. This is why we are trying to find someone capable to help us administrate all the US Area.
The today's situation on the financial market requires us to open and fill several of these job positions within our company; the job opening is that of a Representative within the US. This opening will help our company to reduce the time it takes to receive funding from orders that we receive each month. And we offer you one of the highest incomes on the market today and the minimal expenditures of time.
Presently with the number of orders we have we cannot put them on hold for fear of losing our customers, secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US soon enough, as international checks take about 28 working days to cash anywhere in Europe. We lose a lot of time and money each month because we have money transfer delays. Our clients could pay us where we want by sending checks to an US address. What we need you to do is to provide us an address where you can receive our customer checks. We need someone who can receive the money through this method of payment. Regarding the check process all you have to do is to receive the checks our customers will send to your address, take them to your bank, cash them and send the remainder amount to us after deducting all fees incurred and your commission. All fees for transferring the funds will be supported from our share. Bonuses will apply for cashing checks within 24 hours on receiving a check. You will always take your commission upfront.
We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and processed we deliver the product to our customer (usually through USPS). The customer receives and checks the product and proceeds to send the payment. We accept all forms of payment but most of our customers pay using Bank Checks and so to solve this problem and not lose any of our customers we have decided to open this new job position. This job is legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today. Local money transfers take but a few hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately
PAYMENT AND SALARY:
For example you receive a check as payment for 3000.00 USD, you deduct your commission (10%): 300.00 USD and then send to us the balance: 2700.00 USD. In the first month, you will receive around 15-20 orders under 3,000.00 USD to process and after checking your performance records during that first month the orders you will receive, may increase from 3,000.00 upwards to 6,000.00 USD. For example 20 transactions each around 3000.00 USD gives you a total income of 6,000.00 USD per month and after establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more.
You will also deduct fees that are related to this job (gasoline, western union fees, bank commissions, etc) from our balance, not from your commissions. At first the checks you will receive will vary from: $500.00 to $3,000.00. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part. Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your existing bank account, we don't accept newly created bank accounts because it slows the cashing process. Deduct your percentage and forward the balance to the company attorney manager via a western union money transfer, the name will be given to you later after cashing a payment. This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time for taking up another job; you'll get good income and a regular job. This job is very challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for the employee who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest assistant.
We have health insurance and the 401K retirement savings plan as well as all the other standard benefits that a major company usually provides. Unfortunately we can only start talking about this after the first month has passed since you're working for us. We consider the first month as a trial period. In any case you do not have to pay for anything in advance; there are no hidden costs for performing this job. Any fee you might encounter will be deducted from our share of the funds before you send it to us.
You will receive next instructions step by step.
This depends of how many checks you will receive but it won't take more than 2 hours to deposit the check and send an e-mail when the check arrives to you. Also when checks arrive we will send you further instructions and all details to complete the process with Western Union.
Unfortunately we cannot setup any interviews now we do not have any representatives in US. We will be able to come to meet within the next few months when the new offices will be opened in your area! Please let me know if you are still interested and I will email you the contract.
If you have any questions please email.
Within 24 hours after we will receive this information we will forward you a copy of the contract you have to fill in, sign and e-mail back to us.
