It is a scam. You receive checks and wire the money (less 10%) to them. In a couple of months all the checks begin to bounce and you are in big trouble. You owe all the money and may even go to jail for passing counterfeit checks. ₪ ɦəlʞɹɐq ₪

That is a scam. No legitimate company does business that way, no one uses a "third party" to intervene payments that way. Plus, it looks as if they are going for your personal information, too! Run for the hills.
