Money Laundering Scam? Immediate Assistance.?

I received this email a few days ago (Me being 18 and unemployed decided to follow it up, got involved up until today) Job Title: Data Entry Clerk (no experience required) Location: United Kingdom Salary: FULL TIME £23K plus bonus; PART-TIME $17K plus bonus The Candidate: - Aged older than age 18. - Candidates MUST be fluent speaking English. - Team work. - Demonstrates good attention to detail. We offer: good basic salary; opportunities to progress and develop; tests and study in UK with a trainer. HR Manager The website is: http://presslerfg.com/ Which again I think looks too unprofessional to be an international company Plus, the unprofessional layout of the e-mails, especially the so-called "Training course" which tells me to transfer money sent to my account to another account, and that money being transferred to another account and so-forth... The training e-mail I received. 1. Your Training Manager (TM) calls prescribe you into the list of trade-trainees and to confirm that everything is ready for the start of practical part of the Lesson. (The training manager will assist you by the phone to report about your skills to organize, calculate, communicate, count, etc.) 2. Then TM informs when the money for practicing with elementary operations and your training wage £30 are available on the account that you have specified for training. (The exact amount can’t be specified at the moment since the training money goes from one training person to another by a chain: company sends the initial amount to the 1st trainee, he/she takes £30 as the training wage and sends to the 2nd trainee the rest of the amount after deduction of the commission for the transaction; the 2nd trainee takes £30 and sends to the 3rd trainee the rest minus the commission etc.(subject to the number of the trainees before you in the training chain, the amount that you receive can be different). 3. You call your TM after withdrawing the total amount to receive new details. First, £30 you should take for yourself as your personal training wage for the lesson (you may leave it on your account) and the rest of the amount you will use for practicing with Money Gram and Western Union payment systems. Then you go to the nearest Money Gram location to perform a transaction using the data you will receive from your personal manager. Pay attention to the details to be able to compare and learn the differences between this and other financial services. The Receipt that you get from the Money Gram managers has to be saved. 5. Your TM will provide your practical results according to all references to your local supervisor and compose several questions to check your initial professional level. After you complete the practical part, you will receive theoretical materials. You should answer questions in the test form and send it back to company’s e-mail address within next 24 hours. Some of the questions will concern your practicing for the first training day, some of them will be based on your results (to confirm your skills, abilities, etc).The deadline for sending out the test form: next workday, 6:00 pm. Any Advice please? I've already given them all my details, as I am an 18 year old without a Job, and saw this "opportunity" and went for it... so they have my details including my acc. no. and sort code. Stupid, I know but I needed a job.

On the bright side being 18 and without a job cleaning out your account probably was not so profitable for them. Best watch your credit report for the next few years as your identity is probably stolen as well.
