Got this email while looking for a job, seems really shady but I can't find any information about it being a scam.

Our Ref: ML24528GE
Zodiac Fabrics Company is a Canadian Textile Company.We produce and distribute clothing materials such as batiks, assorted fabrics and Home Textiles & Furnishing Fabrics,Yarns & Fibers,Haute Couture & Designer Fabrics,Industrial Supplies and Accessories..worldwide. We have reached big sales volume of textile materials in the Europe and now we are trying to penetrate the United State of America and Mexican market. Quite soon we will open representative offices or authorized sales centers in the United State of America and therefore we are currently looking for people who will assist us in establishing a new distribution network there. The fact is that despite the United State of America and Mexican market is new for us we already have regular clients also speaks for itself..

Your duties will include:
- Collecting Local Payments
When a buyer in United States decides to purchase an item through an online auction from our sellers he has the following payment options: pay pal, international wire transfer, international check, or local wire transfer. The quickest option of these is local wire transferring. Local wire transfers are the option that the sales support representative will provide to the clients.

- Managing Data
Along with the payments received from buyers you will be receiving details for these sales. These details will include items sold, price, and buyer's information. You are to file and maintain these purchasing records and transactions.

- Forwarding of the Payments
Once you receive each payment you will be keeping 10% as commission and forwarding the rest to the seller or representative, whose information will be provided prior each transaction. It is crucial to complete forwarding of the payments in a time efficient manner.

- Fees, and Transferring Procedures
All fees are covered by the company. The fees for transferring are simply deducted from the payments received. No client will contact you during initial stage of the trial period. After three weeks of the trial period you will begin to have contact with the buyers via email in regards to collection of the payments. For the first three weeks you will simply receive all of the transferring details, and payments, along with step by step guidance from your supervisor. You will be forwarding the received payments by wire transfer.

Additional Information:
During the trial period, you will be paid 2,000USD per month while working on average 3-4hours per day, plus 10% commission from every payment received and forwarded. The salary will be sent in the form of wire transfer directly to your account. After the trial period your base pay salary will go up to 2,200USD per month, plus 10% commission.

You will receive a monthly invoice stating your total income. All applicable taxes are covered by the company.

Your First Primary task (Collection of Payments):
1. Receive payment from our Customers or Clients.
2. Cash Payment at your Bank or any cashing facilities near you.
3. Deduct 10 % which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed

It's a Company Representative Cheque scam.

Ignore the crap about $2,000 a month salaries - that is just to make the job look authentic.

Basically you will be sent a fake cheque, told to cash it and keep 10% as your commission and then send the balance to someone by Western Union.

The cheque will eventuallty be discovered to be fake (possibly weeks later) and the money debited from your acount. Leaving you down the money you sent by WU.

verry soon you obituary will be anoused. you dont know those guys are mafians and they are now after you . mumu. rest in peace

To add to what B8er said, there is no such thing as a job to cash payments and wire them to someone else. Any company can cash a check at no cost, and no sane person would offer 10% of gross sales for a trivial service like that.

Even if there were such a job for a legitimate company (and there isn't), it would still be a very risky thing to do because you would bear the sole responsibility for bad checks. Whenever you see the words "Cash Checks" and "Western Union" together, you can bet it's a scam.

Well done for being suspicious and checking it out. Very Happy

Job lads formats are pretty standard. The company name just changes. For some reason, fake check lads just love textile companies.

If you are interested in having a go at baiting check lads - and I can thoroughly recommend it - then this is essential Eater reading...
