The email is titled “Application for Part-Time Work” and appears to be from a software company.
It explains that they are a new business in financial analysis software.
They have a problem in taking payments for their software from overseas. And the resolution of the problem is to appoint local agents in each country to accept the payments and send them on to the company.
The local agent gets 10% of each contract for their efforts.
It is described as being a part-time job but quite lucrative. And there is no cost up front. Just supply your details to the company and start making money.
This whole setup is fake of course. Any business that has problems taking payment for their product wouldn’t survive in business.
The process of taking payments and passing them on sounds very easy – it is. Problem is that it’s called money laundering and is distinctly illegal.
Criminals often do use unsuspecting innocents to take in money and pass it on, but that’s a crime, not a part-time job.
