I was searching for a job on my college website and saw an ad for Office Assistant Needed. The contact information only had an email address and nothing more. I sent my resume along with contact information believing this may be legitimate work for the summer. Of course, with all things that seem too good to be true, I was cautious. I received a long email whithin a day or so indicating the job specifications, but really more like instructions. This is a copy of what I received. I kept the email information out as ripoffreport advised. It said the following: Dear Applicant, This is to let you know that your application and information was received.

Regards, Andy Gendron From: To: Subject: RE: Office Assistant Position Date: Mon, 6 Jun 2011 01:58:24 -0400 Thank you for your quick response. Below is my contact information as requested. Thank you. Please show your continued interest in this position by sending me the following info. First Name: Last Name: Mailing Address {No P.o box}: City: State: Zip Code: Mobile Phone #: Contact Phone #: SAME Alternative Contact e-mail address: NONE-This is the main email I utilize for all purposes. From: To: Subject: RE: Office Assistant Position Date: Sun, 5 Jun 2011 16:30:14 +0000 Dear Applicant, My name is Andy Gendron from CARA.As you are aware our company provides catering services to airlines and operates several restaurant chains.So my primary job is to source for buyers and suppliers at the same time so that I can link them together in order to make profit for myself. On every actual purchase made, I have a profit of 20% .I source for buyers and suppliers within and outside the United States of America. I am constantly on the move organizing seminars to bring buyers and suppliers together. I need someone that can complete billings, invoicing and payments on my behalf and get them to the vendors, as well as being capable to receive payments from my buyers from time to time. The only way I am entitled to the 20% profit is if the actual transaction is concluded through me.When the suppliers and buyers go head to head,i run at a loss as they can transact directly with one another without my knowledge. This position offers you 10%, you're offered a very good pay as transactions are steady, continuous and constant.An average transaction is for $2,000.00 and over and you can handle as many as 3 transactions in a week as most payments are immediately made. The pay is good enough to encourage you to work hard and be focused and it's more than enough for me to stay in business while encouraging me to source harder and link more suppliers. I travel a lot and when buyers want to make any purchase, when i'm on company errands, he\she has to hold-on till I return, to place an order, on the long term. The effect is our customers start sourcing for suppliers on their own, so having an assistant/representative easily reachable has its numerous advantages. We have lost too many deals due to this and we are trying to put an end to it. The best form of payment used are business checks and direct bank transfers they are always available and confirmed on the spot, they are not the only means used but i will say the best for our process. Most of the buyers we work with are those we've previously handled successful transactions with in the past, new buyers are verified and confirmed before the linking process occurs. You have nothing to worry about. The mode of operation is as follows; you receive the payment directly from the individual buyer, in your mail, usually via ups/fedex and have them cashed. You send the payment to our suppliers/vendors when you are assigned to do so, or directly to the company and your pay is 10% of the amount sent to you. All charges during cashing, sending of payments and transaction completion will be deducted from the balance after you have deducted your pay and not deducted from your own money so your pay is fixed on the amount cashed per transaction. You can handle as many as 3 or more transactions per week, but you'll be handling one (1) initially to see how efficiently and how quickly you can complete the task. On 3 transactions you're sure of nothing less than $600 weekly. The hours are flexible and you can decide when you want to work as what you'll be doing initially is cashing the payments and completing the transaction to the supplier. I don't need you online 24/7,i just need you to be online on a daily basis and at least check your e-mail regularly. Working with me will also not disturb your other jobs, (If you have any) as I require that applicants only have easy access to the internet,so as to be easily reachable and respond/carry out instructions sent as soon as possible. Please show your continued interest in this position by sending me the following info. First Name: Last Name: Mailing Address {No P.o box}: City: State: Zip Code: Mobile Phone #: Contact Phone #: Alternative Contact e-mail address: Regards, Andy Gendron From: To: Subject: Office Assistant Position Date: Wed, 1 Jun 2011 22:25:30 -0400 Mr. Reshel: Please accept my resume in consideration for the position of Office Assistant. My resume indicating my experience is attached. Please call or email me if there are any questions. I look forward to hearing from you in the immediate future in order to set up a possible interview. Thank you.

I received an identical e-mail saying his name was Warren Stanley from Cargill Inc. I looked further into it and got an e-mail with a phone number attached of (630)537-7302. After giving this number a call once and finding out it is a magicjack user (usually scammers use magicjack's to not leave a paper trail) I immediately disregarded the employment. I suggest all college students looking for a quick buck be wary of this scam, they do it usually when student loans come in, then send you a check (that wont cash) for about $2, 400.00 expecting that you will send the amount minus your 10% cut the next day, which essentially just takes $2, 160.00 out of your very own pocket. What a Fuckin Jackass.
