WGC asset management consulting ltd?
I recently received a job offer by email from a company called WGC asset management consulting ltd. I applied for a Data entry support by sent them my CV and filled application. After that the sent me an email to confirm that I should do a 10 days free training programme. BTW, the application asked me to provide name, address, email, phone number, sort code and account number of my bank account. I really wanted to gain work experience so I accept to begin the training. Yesterday was my first day of training, the manager called to inform that my bank account has received £920 and I need to transfer it to the next trainee by using a system called "MoneyGram". Now I am worried as my friend warned me that it could be illegal business or a scam. Could anyone help me with this issue? Is it a scam? Does it has any concern with illegal activity? I don't want to be involved in anything that against law. Below is the training information: 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 learn and strengthen 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 our Electronic Commerce System (ECS). 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. NOTE: You don’t have to use any personal money for the training purposes.* The 10-day training course includes the following stages: Day 1. Initial professional level check. Familiarization with payment systems (MoneyGram, Western Union). Day 2. Paypal. Bank accounts. Day 3. Other payment systems. Installation of ECSS-Client. Day 4. ECSS-Client: Requests handling. Day 5. ECSS-Client: Databases. Day 6. ECSS-Client: Reports. Day 7. ECSS: B2B- and B2C- applications. Day 8. ECSS: Exchanges between payment systems. Day 9. Workday rehearsal 1. Day 10. Workday rehearsal 2. After completing practical parts of each Lesson you will receive necessary theoretical materials and a test-form with questions to be answered within 24 hours. For the practicing you may find the closest and more convenient for you location, where you can observe general options and methods and remember how it works in reality during your training. For each training day it won’t take more then 2 hours. All the Lessons were composed and developed by the CEO of the Company in USA, marketing supervisors and other local managers to prepare you the best for this position. And here is their website: http://wgcconsultingltd.com/ I am begging to ask for help. Anyone has these kinds of knowledge please help me!!! Thank you so much! Best regards!

First of all, NO employer would EVER ask for your bank details BEFORE they have interviewed you i person at their office, so call your bank ASAP and put a freeze on that account before it is emptied out, if it's not too late... More
