    On 3/30/09 Catherine Burc showed an interest in my resume and sent me an application. After I filled it out I asked for fax and on 4/6/09 she said to send it back via e-mail. I explained that I printed it and filled it in and wanted to FAX it. She wrote again for me to scan it and e-mail it back. I am skeptical of a corporation without a fax so I'm finished - job or no job.

    I have been in contact with this lady for about 2 weeks, when I ask for personal and business references in the US she will not answer or tell me anything. She just ignores it. Also I canít find anything out about them from the Chamber of Commerce in Geneva. I never can talk to Catherine, itís always some guy. The thing that really bother me is that I have a web page called ďReadnotifyĒ and when I put this on there e-mail address ( which doesnít show at there end) it will tell me when it is opened and what country it ends up in. They never open them so they must have some program that tells them they are being traced. They havenít asked for any money yet and they are supposed to contact me Monday for my first account. I think this is a money laundering scam.

    This is an absolute scam. It is not money laundering though. I saw it on 20/20 afew weeks ago. they send you a check or money order and it appears to clear with your bank. In the meanwhile you forward the money minbus your cut to another account/address. After the check really physically clears, you find out that there were insufficient funds in Catherine's account, and now you are out whatever the amount was plus the check fee and possible fraud charges brought by the District Attorneys office. Just ove on from this and anything else similar, like abacus-llc. they try to interview you over yahoo messenger. when i exposed them as a scam withn about 20 seconds, they sent a long string of haha's and called me lazy bones! I forwarded the emails and the phone number they gave me for the company to the FBI. the phone number is a home land line routed through Baton Rouge, LA.
