It sounds like a scam. For a start, simple things like the wording 'Attorney Fees', ...it would be 'Solicitor's Fees' in the UK. And incorrect spelling such as 'counsulting' when it should be 'Consulting' My advice? Don't touch it with a barge polel! Stay well clear!

A scam. Never send money to people they recommend themselves.

No legitimate employer I've ever heard of, anywhere in the world, will ask you for money in any form.

Assume it is a scam unless proven otherwise! Any company asking for up-front payments has to start alarm bells ringing. Bob
