Has anyone done this? Is this a scam?
A company by the name of JPL Independent & Co LTD contacted me via e-mail if I was interested in a job with them. The job would allow me to work from home. By going over their web site http://jplindependent.org/index.php it seemed good to me so I agreed. They don’t ask for money what so ever only for my contact information and Bank account number to which they will deposit my paycheck too. So I e-mailed them back the completed application and my resume. They emailed me back to day telling me my training start tomorrow and via internet so one will be contacting me as well. If I have any questions to call this number (781) 241 9930. Well, I called and its not a working # and 781 area code appears to be located in Lexington, MA, when the website indicates the company is located in Buxton, Derbyshire overseas. Now am scared because they have my personal information and account # (not my SS# though). What can I do? Or What should I do? i dont want to know about any other work from home site, only if this is a scam! Also they e-mailed me these instructions: TRAINING COURSE BASIC INFORMATION/ The training days don't have to be consecutive (you can make breaks for one or several days if it's necessary). Your application was reviewed by the Human Resource Department and your candidacy was approved. After you complete the free training course company guarantees your employment within one business day.

If for technical reasons your training has to be postponed you receive the training wage as well. The course is distant, except for two personal meetings with one of company’s managers in your city. While passing the course you will be permanently assisted by the phone. While studying, you will permanently move from the easiest to more complicated levels. Each lesson contains a theoretical and a practical part. Everyday you will receive studying materials that you should earn and streng then your knowledge by passing tests. The training course starts with familiarizing with payment systems. During the first three training days you will get familiarized with all the payment systems that interact with ECSS system. Besides learning theory you will practice with performing elementary operations (sending/receiving money, depositing on account etc.) to be able to answer clients questions and consult them in real time.

You call your personal manager after withdrawing the total amount.* $50 you should take for yourself as your personal training wage and the rest of the amount you will use for practicing with MoneyGram and Western Union payment systems. 3. Then you go to the nearest MoneyGram location to perform an international transact ion using the data from the FORM1 (you will receive the necessary information from your personal manager). NOTE: You should pay attention to all the details of the process to be able to answe r any question about MoneyGram and consult clients in real time.

It is a HUGE scam. Close your bank account if there is any money left in it immediately. Do not contact these people.

Look, I don't know if it's legit or not but if it's not, I would contact your bank and tell them. They can contact you when any transaction is being attempted.

Yes, this is likely a scam. I checked the records on their website at http://www.whois.net/ and it was only created in May. That doesn't necessarily mean it is a scam, but with the other information it sure sounds like one... More
