    Dear Ladies and Gents,

    Recently I have received an email from [email protected].

    I sent my resume and all that.

    The job is for a VA post and they offered $1600 salary for a homebased job, to top it off David (hr guy that i am in contact with) said that since I am qualified for the post hey will also send me an chs atm debit card, and pacific west is also in partnership with western union.

    As our exchanges of email progressed, i was instructed to transact with western union and send money of not less than GBP 300. David said that once I do that, all I had to do is withdraw the money and then send them a copy of this cancelled transaction. He also said that I had to do this for them to generate my SIN number (Salary Index Number). I find this really suspicious.

    Although I have checked the company online that he said they are in partnership with, i saw that the company is somehow legit.

    But i think that pacific west might be using the companynfor its fraudulent acitivities.

    David also sent me a scanned copy of the ATM debit card.

    I am pasting a copy of the email below for everyone to see: Can someone please scambait this for me please

    it's just one of thousand email scams. You can always recognize them in this part "As our exchanges of email progressed, i was instructed to transact with western union and send money of not less than GBP 300. David said that once I do that, all I had to do is withdraw the money and then send them a copy of this cancelled transaction. He also said that I had to do this for them to generate my SIN number (Salary Index Number)."
    Unless you have applied for a job and you know who contacts you, don't send money to anyone. A lot of people fall for this kind of scams.

    What I can recommend you to do is go on youtube and watch James Veitch on TEDx. Basically guy who replies to scam emails to troll them.
    you will laugh and learn how to recognize scams.

    1. They contacted you first? That's a red flag right there
    2. A real company wouldn't ask you to send money to get a job
    3. That email doesn't show up in google other than your thread asking this question on another forum
    4. The website isn't even live!

    Scam written all over it.

    You will need to pay for the delivery of all the items they are going to send you, probably by you paying them upfront and they'll deliver zilch, just by reading this line;

    A Parcel containing your CHS ATM Card and employment documents have been deposited with DHL for onward delivery to you. The contents of the parcel include; Employment Letter, Contract Document, CHS Pay-Cash ATM value 2000.00 USD, 1 Epson Digital colored printer.

    Anyone asking you to wire money through WU for a job application is a POS.

    Ah the classic advance fee fraud there mate.

    It amazes me how folks are still suckered into this and some pretty smart folks too, doctor's, engineers from third world countries desperately looking for work in US or UK, get emailed ridiculous job offers and requested to remit $000 for "refundable visa fees".

    100% scam
