Address: 3200 West End Avenue

to complete a one month of paid on-line probationary period, then

there will be a series of interviews with Regional Managers and

Executive Director at your local branch and afterwards, there will

be a one week of additional training at the office.

It is done in 4 steps (1 week each). Probationary period will take

about 1-2 hrs a day of your time with flexible shift. We will be

sending you materials in the morning and for each assignment you will

be given at least 24 hours. This will allow you to combine

probationary period with your FT position until you get proposal from

our company. It also includes a paycheck to compensate your time

spent, $1,500 sent upon the completion of the one month probation. You

will be invited to take part in Stage 2 if you succeed with the first

one.

SECOND STAGE

The second stage is a week of instruction course and the final

interview held in one of our locations (your regional division). You

will be invited to come there for 1 week, all expenses are paid by our

side, including trip and stay (for those who will be working

remotely). You will start full time once you complete both stages of

training. You won’t have to wait for the launch of the office in your

area. You will work out of your home for some time; we will provide

all necessary equipment. You will be able to choose where to work by

the time we open an office nearby, either keep working out of your

home or in office. We cover the relocation cost if required or provide

equipment for your home office.

TRAINING GROUPS

We usually launch 2 training groups a week (10 candidates in each).

Below you may find information on the nearest group.

Start date: 10/28/15

Duration: 1 month

Number of stages: 4 stages (1 week each)

Shift: flexible

Location: telecommute

You will receive the paycheck at the end of the training, $1,500 sent

to compensate your time. Paycheck can be doubled if you show above

average test results. Also, 1099 will be issued for IRS.

Studies will be sent via e-mail every morning for next 4 weeks, Monday

through Friday. More info on the studies and structure will be

available shortly. Best candidates will be invited to participate in

various part time projects which will be additionally paid or include

bonuses. Your participation in such activities will double your

paycheck and will improve your chance to pass Stage 1. We will invite

you to come visit our office if you pass the probation successfully.

It will be a week of instruction course at your local division,

final interview and employment paperwork if you pass. All expenses are

covered by our side. Please, find attached a copy of Pre-Employment

Agreement, which you’ll have to sign before you start the

probationary period.

The Pre-Employment Agreement is valid for only 1 month of

probationary period.

You’ll become an official employee if you succeed in both stages. I’d

like to re-assure you that you won’t have to share any of your

personal information with us until you are officially hired. You’ll

have to print out the last page of the agreement, sign it, scan and

send back to me. We accept copies sent via e-mail since they will

Then on Monday, 11-9-15, I received the following email from Mr. Cuono, which raised a red flag.

Wilhelm Cuno via smtpcorp.com

Attachments8:16 AM (4 hours ago)

to me

Morning ,

How are you today? Case has been checked and your score is 5 out of 5.

Please, find attached new case.

I’ve received an approval this morning for part-time projects we

discussed. This project will include 2 major steps.

Step #1: to receive funds for a part-time project from our company to

one of your existing credit cards;

Step #2: to purchase the equipment per the project list and ship it

out to one of the designated locations.

Attached, you may find a manual which explains how to apply for the

payment you will use to purchase the equipment. We’ve included

manual for the Chase Bank since all systems are pretty generic and

this one is a common one.

As you can see you will be working with on-line banking which

guarantees you full security and, again, none of your personal

information is required for the process. As we start the project, you

will receive funds first and only after that you will process the

purchase. I’m expecting banking details and additional instructions to

be available this afternoon, so as soon as I get a confirmation from

you that everything is clear, I’ll send them to you. Meanwhile, I’d

like you to take a look at the manual attached to make sure everything

is clear. We do have manuals for few other banks and they will be

available upon request. Take your time and review the material

attached. If everything is fine with you, please, submit a request for

banking details and project list and I will send them to you later

today.

Kyle –

Victim Location 85396

Type of a scam Employment

My friend, who lives in a different state than me, was emailed by the company approximately Monday October 19th with an offer of a job interview with very nice salary $80,000 – $100,000. The email stated that they saw her resume on Career Builder.

She had a phone interview with the company about the job around October 22nd. On October 26th she received an email indicating the next steps in the hiring process. This is when it started to sound strange.

The contract verbiage was not quite right.

They would pay her for training as a contractor and …."It also includes a paycheck to compensate your time spent…$1,500 sent upon the completion of the one month probation….Compensation is paid after 4 weeks of probationary period, by sending a check to a place of Contractors living, in case there is no other place specified by Contractor".

I researched the company and a few of their locations noted on their website and plugged the company name into scamadvisor.com and the BBB.

Scamadvisor.com stated that the website has only been there 17 days and is not based out of the location stated on the website. It is a very well designed website and upon research it looks like they copied a lot of verbage from a legitimate website…see example:

http://www.inboundlogistics.com/cms/planner/2015/oocl-logistics/

Look at the descriptions on Inbound Logistics…

then look at InterGlobal Transportation’s company profile…

http://ig-transportation.com/profile.php

…ig-transportation.com just changed the names and countries.

My friend has ceased communicating with them. They are still sending emails asking for a signed contract. I have attached the contract(scam). I have called the phone numbers listed twice each. It sounds like the same answering message.

I am interested to find out more about this. It seems like it has just started the 17+ days ago. I do not want others to go through more than what my friend has already. She is feeling violated even though she never signed the contract.

Below is the email related to the contract(scam) attached.

From: Wilhelm Cuno <[email protected]>

Date: Mon, Oct 26, 2015 at 1:10 PM

Subject: To XX from Wilhelm. Employment document.

To: XX

How are you today?

Nice to meet you, my name is Mr. Wilhelm Cuno and I will be your

personal Regional Training Manager during a course of

I will be guiding you through the course of training, will be

helping you completing daily test and will be giving you feedback and

useful tips which will help you improve your score.

Unfortunately, you are not the only one candidate who applied for the

opening in your state, we have selected 20 candidates and will

choose only 10 successful ones, so I am in charge of other

candidates as well. For any questions I can be reached via phone

(at the bottom of the e-mail) from 9 AM till 3 PM EDT or via e-mail

from 9 AM till 5 PM EDT. Do not hesitate to ask any questions you may
