Money Laundering Scams & Job Solicitations
Well, initially I was approached to be the account representative for Canada & the US for an International Steel Company--name of which is a legitimate International Steel Company. I think it highly unlikely these guys really represent this Steel Company.
Ultimately the idea was that these accounts of this International Steel Company would be paid directly to me -- which was going to amount to hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars, and I would get a small percentage in addition to a somewhat generous monthly stipend.
Hmmm. . . . I don't think so. This doesn't really sound like an International Steel Company, this sounds like a Criminal Enterprise.
I think they got my contact information from linkedin, I'm not sure, but I've been contacted by legitimate recruiters in the past.
Further, it turns out this is like a huge deal and problem of money laundering scams of job seekers as well as reshipping scams.
So if you are contacted out of the blue, by people with really "sketchy" job offers -- BEWARE! You Could Be Walking Into Some Potential Criminal Liability Yourself.
