I recieved this email concerning a job. What on earth does it mean?
Is it dodgy? Hello, my name is David Jackson and I am Acor Financial Group hiring manager. We have found and carefully reviewed your CV and decided to offer this job to you. Our services When buying-selling operations via the Internet are concerned, the buyer and the seller don't know each other (they may be placed in different corners of the world) - it is very important both to the buyer and the seller for their deal to be made safe. Payment Protection means receiving money, documents, goods (it might be both the seller's and the buyer's) concerning the transaction to a reliable, experienced, impartial person - our Payment Protection agent. The agent will hold all the documents and money until all the terms of the deal are satisfied and only then release them to the intended receiver. Why we need Payment Protection agents Having an Payment Protection agent in every country we can quickly transfer funds inside a country without wasting time on the international bank transfers, and continue our rapid growth rather than overwhelming our own bank account with inbound and outbound transactions leading to severe hold times and possible service interruption. It is time that is of significant importance to our clients. Career and Benefits Your main task will be receiving money transactions to any bank account you would like to use for the purposes of this job; and then forwarding these transactions to the next party of the Payment Protection process according to our instructions. You will benefit from the commissions, which are 5-7% of each transaction and depend on the quantity of the completed transactions and the speed of your work. Besides, you will be paid a basic salary of 1500 GBP per month. For your convenience there will be no paychecks, your commission will remain in your account after every successfully completed transaction. The money transfer fee is not included in your commission, meaning that you will deduct it from the received amount, not from your commission. Also you receive 5-7% of the transaction amount. Normally the amounts that we process vary from 2,000 GBP to 10,000 GBP, but can go higher on special occasions. Job details As the financial activity in your area is not too high, an Payment Protection agent will be processing approximately 1-2 transactions per week. Each transaction requires approximately 4-5 hours of the agent work. Our manager always calls the agent beforehand to provide all the instructions. Therefore, with the due time management, the agent is able to combine this job with other activities (e.g. primary job or studies). If you are ready to proceed, please reply to this e-mail and our hiring manager Michal Stempski will contact you shortly. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need more information.

That sounds like a scam. I would not touch it.

It means it's a scam to get you to pay them for their "insurance" selling program, and if you are lucky, you get to try to sell their insurance on a commission-pay base only. Unless you are gung-ho to work for only a commission, and are willing to pay for training, forget it. Hit "delete."

Roger that! Dodgy. Especially if they solicited you first.

Not a scam actually because they are not asking you to pay any money but looks like money laundering so how about a nice prison sentence if you say yes.
