Career Builder Scam?

A few days ago I received an email from a company called "Paymate Solutions". They have a website. I would like to know if anyone else has heard of this company.
The way they work is, they require you to open a bank account at B of A with money they provide you via a bank transfer. After doing that, they send money to this account, they then instruct the processor to send the money to them, minus the fee that they pay to you. Any one heard of this company or similar?
I've run across alot of scams, but this one, if it's a scam is new to me, and I would like to find out if it is a scam or legit?
Their website is: http://paymate-solutions.org/?p=home

scam

it is a scam. it starts out that they send you a check to open the account. only that once the check clears it may not be legitimate. so you are stuck with making up the difference. also they somehow get the number of the account and can drain it dry once you put in your own money. the processor never makes full deposits or they are phoney leaving you to pay the bill. forget it. no one gives you money to open an account. if they do either it is a scam or it is covert money laundering. if it is money laundering and you are the unsuspecting "mule", you will be prosecuted along with the hoodlums. FORGET IT>

Re: Career Builder Scam?

Yes, 100% scam.

Any "job" that lets you "process money" for some unseen company is a scam.

Everyone who falls for these schemes ends up in serious legal trouble, and in debt --- for all the stolen money that they forwarded to the scammers.

Re: Career Builder Scam?

I agree with the others, scam. You will end up cashing fake checks, stolen money will be laundred through your account, stolen credit cards will be used to 'send' you money or simply fake deposits will be made. The reason they want you to use one particular bank is that the scammer knows how to fake the deposits for that particular bank. Delete the email and ignore any job offers that require you to open a bank account, cash checks, send checks, print checks, forward packages to someone else, send money via Western Union/moneygram or handle someone else's money for any reason.

Re: Career Builder Scam?

Thanks to everyone for your information. Guess the only way to get work is to find a real brick and mortar type job --- which in California is next to impossible to do.

about jobs in California, mortar and brick

you say you wish to find a real job in California next to impossible. I can only suggest can you look at neighboring states like Oregon or Nevada? sometimes just a small move across the border into either Klamath Falls,OR or Lake Tahoe,NV can do the trick. also if things in your own background of training/education area don't work: try something like nursing. a two year LPN( licensed practical nurse or licensed vocational nurse) curriculum can be taken at most community colleges. financial aid is available. nursing jobs are always in demand. pay is pretty good also. at least consider it. also if you move to Nevada consider something in the gaming/casino industry --if only to tide you over for a while. you know Marsha Clark,the DA in the OJ Simpson case, worked as a waitress in Las vegas,NV while she went to law school. other noted attorneys in the Los angeles area worked at casinos in Las vegas,NV or Reno,NV while they studied law. so perhaps there could be a job at the casinos. at least it is something to consider. good luck and take what I say as food for thought. think "outside the box". it may help
