Receivables Processing Specialist Job Scam

Links & ads you may click on this blog pay the bills & keep this site free for you. Thanks for supporting!

It amazes me how many variations of the fake check scams that are out there and how often they are sent out. Well I just received another one in my email box and I wanted to share it with you guys. I know everyone is always trying to find legitimate work at home jobs and these scams tend to appear very legit.
But the fact of the matter is they are just another scam to be avoided. Don't be another victim of an elaborate work from home scam. People don't just email you randomly with job offers especially if you haven't posted your resume online. In any event, I've listed the email below so you know what to look out for.

Email Subject: Receivables processing specialist – part-time position with a foreign investment company

I am writing to inquire if you might be interested in part-time
employment in the field of accounting/clerical services.

Our firm is a major Russian investment bank
and asset management company, is looking for responsible and determined
individuals to fill the specialist and associate positions within the
Receivables department of our Transactions/Finance group in the United
States. As a specialist or associate, you will be in charge of
monitoring and processing funds transfers initiated by our US clients
and reporting to the Receivables department manager in Russia. We are
looking for numerate individuals who are also capable team-players,
preferably with some college education and/or previous
accounting/clerical experience.

The position is entirely home-based, and no relocation is required
from the successful candidate. This role does not involve any fixed
working hours and is suitable for senior citizens or self-employed

Our company is a leading Russian asset manager and investment bank
located in Moscow (Russia) with a subsidiary office in Vilnius
(Lithuania), and a local representative in Nicosia (Cyprus). Our
mission is to provide investors with reduced emerging market risk and
superior returns through broad diversification and conscious

The position on offer is commission-based. Typically, you will be
expected to dedicate up to 8 hours per week to your duties, part of
which should be regular business hours. Your core responsibility will
be to receive investment funds from our US clients into your
designated bank account, reconcile the payments and obtain the
transaction documentation from your supervisor, and transfer specified
funds into our managed investment accounts as instructed. You will be
in charge of contacting your bank in order to obtain transfer status
information, confirmations and account activity reports, as well as
handling daily communications with your bank.

You will receive a flat-rate 2% commission from the gross amount of
each transfer that is remitted into your designated account (for
instance, if $10,000 is credited into your account, you will be
retaining a commission of $200), plus we will cover any funds transfer
fees. Your commission is available immediately, so there is no need to
wait for the payroll check in the end of the month.

It should be underlined that all monies that you will receive will
come from verifiable entities within the US. The funds that you will
handle will comprise of stake purchase at our managed funds, funds
given into trust management and various fees that are charged on our
clients. You will receive funds via secure electronic Wire transfer
used by major US banks for funds and securities settlement. This means
that no funds will be deposited into your account unless the
transaction is reviewed and confirmed both by the remitting and
recipient banks. Thus, there is no risk on your end. You will never be
required to cash a check, make a remittance before the funds are
cleared into your account or engage in any other financially risky

It should also be understood that being a foreign entity, EncoTrust
is not subject to the US IRS supervision. You will be the sole person
liable for reporting the commissions that you receive as your personal
or business income.

In order to qualify for the position, you must be a permanent US
resident aged 21 and above and have an existing personal/business
banking relationship with a US bank. Since most communication with
your supervisor will be via email/fax/phone, you should have access to
these facilities and be reachable during regular business hours.
Business owners utilizing business bank accounts will be subject to
higher receivables turnover, and thus, higher commissions.

To apply for this position and for more information on our company,
please fax your resume and (optionally) cover letter to:
(267) 316-5784. Don't forget to inclued our email address.

Please note that only applicants under serious consideration will be

  3. I have been answering job ads on Career Builder. Recently, I received a job offer, unsolicited I might add, that seemed so good to be true, I investigated it to a point. It was from a company called Cash Advance Inc in Norfolk, VA. They wanted me to be a company executive. I had to be available from 2-4 hours a day. They would deposit $9000 into my bank account, money that they had received from their clients. I would check my email several times a day and I would receive an email telling me to wire funds from account via Western Union to one of their clients who needed cash. I would deduct 8% from the amount requested for transfer as my commission. In addition, they would pay me $970/week salary, so besides the salary, I would be earning 8% of the total monies that I would wire. As soon as the transaction had been completed, I was to email the company. Sounds like a great job for four hours a day? They stressed that they didn’t want any of my login info for my bank account. I called the Attorney Generals office in Norfolk VA, told them about it and gave them the address and princioal of the company. They were listed as a legitimate company, but the Attorney Generals office thought it sounded fishy and urged me no to comply. They also wanted me to forward the emails I had received from the company to them and they were going to investigate. Have you heard of this and has anyone else been contacted by this company?

    • Hi Larry,

      Thanks for sharing this information. The fact of the matter is this whole situation is a scam. Often scam artist will reference a real company’s name and address so when you do your research then it will come up clean. However if you actually try contacting the company using the information on their website and not the email you received (which is usually from a free email account like yahoo, gmail, hotmail, etc), you’ll usually find the company has no idea what you’re referring to. But even if a scammer goes through this extra step of deceit, it’s still easy to figure out it’s a fat scam. It’s nothing more than an elaborate check cashing/ wire transfer scam we’ve covered on our scam page:

      This is why I’m always preaching read that page from top to bottom because you’ll find stories of other so called companies doing the same thing. The names may be different but the scam is always the same.
      In terms of the check or wire fraud, it always works as follows regardless of the name and other details. You receive a check or a fake deposit into your account, you take a portion of that money and they keep the rest. The checks and wires are always fake and you end up in a heap of trouble with your bank. End of story. Any variations before that doesn’t matter. Once they start taking about checks, wiring money, etc, etc that’s the end of the conversation. lol

      At the end of the day your instincts are usually correct in these situations. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I’m mean think about it, why would a company offer you job that you never applied for. Furthermore why would they allow you to handle such large amounts of money without any interview, background check, references, face to face meeting, etc. It literally doesn’t add up. But do your part and spread the word to the Attorney General. They will probably contact the legit company that this scammer may be imposing.
