Here’s what’s wrong:
- Nobody legitimate will give you ten percent of millions of dollars for merely using your bank account to accept money. If it were legit, they would hire a bookkeeper for $30,000 a year, but the checks wouldn’t be made out to him.
- Checks would be deposited in the company account, not a personal bank account. If checks piled up in your account you’d have the FBI on your doorstep in an instant. They’d get you for racketeering, bank fraud, money laundering and mail fraud and the gangsters go Scott-free.
- Look at the seven pieces of info they want. All this is is a scam to take over your identity. Any fool who would give them this is asking for it.
- This is a fishing expedition: once they know all these things about you they will write an email telling you that someone else was more qualified. Then watch the firecrackers go off inside your credit card. You become el-pigeon, the target, the scapegoat. Stand clear.
- Don’t be fooled by this garbage stuff. I once tallied a half billion dollars in scams sent to me inside of a month–there were seventy-five or so of these inventive emails. I wish I could get them to stop emailing me like this. But the only answer is to cancel this email service and get a new one. Or just delete this stuff each month. Don’t get caught in their scam. Get angry and stand clear!
Believe me–legitimate, legal companies don’t operate like this.
