However, the other day someone "saw my resume" and "offered me a job" at E.L.F. Finance Group L.T.D.
A team of "seasoned top executives in Finance and Investment Operations" with "unparalleled track records of success in brokerage operations" liked my old resume that I haven't updated with anything beyond construction and kitchen jobs ....
"We Have A Part Time Job For You!" the e-mail says.
From my resume they decided to offer me the opportunity to provide investment assistance resources to all business owners "willing" to invest their capital in order to expand their companies
The company has "registered requests for investment contracts in Canada." Does that mean they're not registered in Canada?
"We're currently trying to expand our services over in USA and Canada," the e-mail reads.
-Why do we prefer hiring people instead of opening an office over in Canada?It sounds like there isn't even an office to work out of? You just transfer payments from Canadian companies to the UK? .... uuuhhhhh
-Because it is far cheaper paying a 10% commission rather than going through all the paper hassle of registering a business in Canada and opening offices all over the country. Besides, there is no certainty that our company will succeed selling the products in Canada, that's why it is called a Market Test. Upon, a successful result, we will being opening offices in Canada.
Any job offer that testifies that it's "perfectly legal" sounds a bit dubious. Probably not the best way to get people to buy in.
The job we are offering is perfectly legal , legit and all our transactions will be verified by our Financial Department before they are forwarded to our employees for cashout.
In an unrelated note, I heard of this scam that goes something like this:
it's a scam, newest one in the line.

You "receive" payments from overseas companies, deposit into your own bank account, then make "payments" to other companies on behalf of the company.Aha!
the scam part works like this.
you receive $1000 check from company A and deposit it into your bank.
company then tells you to pay X, Y, Z companies for $300 ec.
that's $900 and you keep $100.
The issuing bank of the "check" from Company "A" bounces and the money is taken out of your account to cover it $-1000. So you are now out $900 and have just given your wealth to 3 "companies" owned by the scam.
It is a variation on the "I buy your item for X amount including shipping and you send shipping money to Y person"
