    Re: retail job offer SCAM

    Interesingly, 15% of 6000 is not 600. That might be one clue. Also it is illegal in north america to ask someones sex, age, or marital status as part of a job placement process.

    and your commision is 15% but it starts at 20% and increases to 20%. Interesting.

    LOL, you are worried about technical violations of employment laws when this is an outright FRAUD scheme?

    This is nothing more than the old scam of sending you fake, bogus, counterfeit, worthless checks which you then deposit in your bank account and later forward them a portion of the funds. A few weeks later your bank calls you up and tells you the checks you deposited were fraudulent and you need to come up with $12,200 to pay them back. You'll also get a knock on your front door from the police who will want to know about your part in this fraudulent scheme.

    Anyone moronic enough to think someone needs to pay $40K/month to wash checks thru the US banking system belongs in jail, even if they were an unwitting accomplice.

    Just pointing out that the person making this scam didn't even bother to be consistant in the ad itself. Not that consistancy makes it les of a scam.

    In this case even if you thought you could get a job doing this, the offer is bogus in that there are contradictions in the offering.

    And 6%+20% is 26% ... just 1 % lower than the 27% they have to pay for money transfer ... a bunch of dumb scammers ...

    Oh, it's the same scam as used so many times, just repacked ...

    Money order or check 419 scam ...

    I understand that employers have to use digital resume scanners to scan resumes on those sites, but if they are going to contact you, they better do better than dear sir/madam. I will not touch those.
