I have a job offer however, i do not think its safe.. can someone help me?
I have a job offer as a financial services officer however, i do not trust it! you get paid quite a lot for less work. I only have to work Monday to Friday 9am to 11am and at the end of the month, i will get 1500. I will copy and paste the email which i received from the person. it is long but please please can someone read it and let me know. I am desperate for a job but i do not want to be scammed. Here is the email: Thank you everyone who are willing to help!! Hello, Thank you for your reply and interest, first of all, I'm sorry for using Gmail address, however, we are required to use Gmail every time we are contacting new people, due to SPAM problem we had recently. In this e-mail I have summarized some of the basic information about the current vacancy. Once you've had the chance to review the information, please contact me directly so that I may offer any additional insights and direct information on applying. Just so you understand the basics, this is not a sales position or a telemarketing scheme. This is a work-from-home job offer. Monthly base salary is guaranteed, while additional income through commission is paid out on a task-to-task basis! Here is more information about the job position with CUBE AND STONE LTD. We specialize in marketing original art using the world wide web. Our company helps artists sell their work by connecting buyers with artists. Remember, Art career is one of the most difficult path one can have to make living from. But keeping your passion alive and passing the suffering part is one of the most important ingredient to success. When some millionaires were asked “what made them successful?” they stated that “when doing something you are passionate about, the money will follow”!! The position being offered is for Financial Services Officer. For the most part what the job requires is to be available Monday through Friday, 9 to 11 am, however some times you would have to work longer hours, for overtimes you will get paid extra. Your main job would be monitoring your on-line Task Manager account, which you’ll create during the employment registration process. As a Financial Services Officer you will be managing company's funds through your personal or a new bank account. Once funds enter your bank account, your supervisor will assign you tasks for the day. At this point you would go to your bank, withdraw the funds and transfer them using Western Union or Money Gram, as instructed by your supervisor. We provide quick, easy, efficient and secure ways for businesses to out source services locally, nationally and globally to maximize their competitive advantage and cost effectiveness. Base salary 1,500 GBP is paid at the end of probationary period (once employed on the regular basis, base salary 1,800 GBP is paid on the last business day of the month) via wire transfer directly to your bank account. Your 8 commission will be deposited along with every transfer. We will let you know how much of the amount deposited is your commission and how much needs to be transferred, all fees are paid from money received, you won’t have to invest your own money! Financial Services Officer job requirements: - Minimum 18 y.o.; - reliable internet connection at home; - home or mobile phone number; - regular bank account checking or savings (if you feel more comfortable using a new bank account, please do so, once employed on the regular basis we will provide with a bank account through the company). Employment benefits (upon completion of 30 days trial period): - Paid holidays; - Dental and Health; - Professional development programs The person has also told me that i can make a new bank account for this job however, he wants me to be in the same branch. For example: i am with Lloyd TSB, if i do make a new bank account, he wants me to still be in Lloyd as i have already been established by them. I do not mind making a new account but is there any way he can find my original bank account details? This company has a professional website and i have read the FAQs. I do not know what to do. is it really a scam?

How do you recognise SPAM? The spelling and grammer are usually all over the place. Read the job offer again to see what I mean. Where to put this? Straight in the round filing cabinet.
