The following is in reference to CareerBuilder.com, an online jobs board, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

CareerBuilder Job Scam

I posted my resume on www.careerbuilder.com; I was solicited by a potential employer affiliated with CareerBuilder, Niamax Limited. The email was sent on CareerBuilder letterhead, as are many emails I receive from the CareerBuilder site. The soliciting company's website is www.niamax-ltd.com; this company is listed as doing business in the United Kingdom.

After expressing my interest with their company, I was emailed a legal document (employment contract) to email or fax back to them. The employer then conducted a preliminary "background check" on me and offered me a job. I agreed to work part-time for them as an independent contractor, processing payments from their customers in the United States. I was instructed that I needed to process these payments through Wells Fargo Bank, and would need to obtain a Wells Fargo Bank account if I currently didn't own one.

I accepted two payments (online transfers) into my Wells Fargo Bank account from two other Wells Fargo Bank customers that were supposedly Niamax customers. I was instructed to send the bulk of each payment to a specified business associate, after subtracting my 6% commission, and the Western Union transfer fee. I sent both payments to business associates in Athens, Greece by Western Union; both payments were picked up same day. One man's name was Cornet Deglos, the other was Cleys Mercken.

Wells Fargo Bank has now reversed the initial online customer transfers into my account, stating the transactions were unauthorized (hacked from the accounts of other Wells Fargo Bank customers). I am now responsible for the gross amount ($1977.30) of both unauthorized transactions into my account because I withdrew the money and sent it on, as instructed by my employer, Niamax Limited.

Wells Fargo Bank is not interested in discussing the fact that their system was breached by a hacker, or the fact that I only processed the payments. I asked Wells Fargo Bank why holds were not placed on these online transfers into a NEW account, but they gave no answers, and didn't provide me with an explanation.

Additionally, I notified CareerBuilder's Integrity Team regarding their affiliation with this employer. The representative stated CareerBuilder can't screen all employers utilizing their website, and that I should have read their fraud disclaimer, which is obscurely located in fine print on their website.

employjobsca@aol.com is a money laundering and phishing scam. They are phishing logins of employers to get their hands on the emails of job applicants that they spam with their phony workopolis job offer as a 'payment processor'. They interact payments from some other poor schlumps phished bank account. Don't fall for it.

I asked workopolis to put up a warning--they said they would think about it. Irresponsible on their part.

http://eden21.net/m..aelinvest/ is the new URL for Mirael Invest Funds. I guess they realized someone was on to them, so they changed the URL. I believe it is a scam if you read the job description. Why would you receive deposits from customers in a personal banking account?
Usually businesses set up their own accounts for business deposits, and don't deposit into the personal accounts of employees. That's one red flag. Sending them via Western Union is another red flag, since many escrow scams operate in this manner. The IP address,
72.232.168.42, was also seen here:

I just got an email from the same people, now they are using Royal bank, Scotica Bank, TD bank Bank of montreal. These finanical institutes do not take any responsibility for their mistakes either, I am being sued by the Royal Bank -- I have contacted RBC Ombudsman (they say they are impartial but we shall see, I have emailed them to find out what to do. Good luck everyone. There should something in place to hold these financial institutes accountable for their screw-ups

I have had a very similar situation, I am with TD Canada Trust. ( Well I was ). The amount was $2,000 and TD DID HOLD THE FUNDS, after 1 week they were deposited in my account, I withdrew and proceeded with the transactions, 30 days later, TD said the deposit was fraudulant and I am responsible for the funds. When I asked why they hold funds if not to check that its valid. they basically just said they hold it just cause, it was my responsibilty to make sure that the pymnt was legit ???? I thought thats why we have banks, and why we trust banks?? If I cash a pymnt I expect the bank to know if it is fraudulant or not.
This happened almost 2yrs ago, and as it stands it is an ongoing issue with various collection agencies. IT gets tossed from 1 to another. I have no intention on paying, as I did nothing wrong. I spoke with a alwyer briefly and wa sinformed I shouldnt pay either. It was not my fault.

Atleast Im not alone, glad I found this page.

Saw my resume on CareerBuilder...L2 Corporation!!! It's a SCAM....This is what they send you....You will receive various payments from our US or Canada buyers for our products/services and every customer will specify when the payment will be sent, the amount and the products that were purchased. With US representatives' help we can process these payments faster. Our company is selling 95% from time system alarms in the USA. There are also other various security products that we offer. Here is the step by step description of this job: 1. You agree with terms and conditions of L2 Corporation Agreement, sign it and email it to us back along with your postal address and you are ready to process payments. 2. We advertise our products and in 4-5 days you start receiving payments from our customers (checks) made payable to your name and address for instant processing. 3. You cash one payment (check) - at the bank or check cashing store. 4. You deduct your 10% from total amount of the check that you receive and cash. 5. You transfer us 90% minus transfer costs (the transfer costs are paid from our 90%) with bank to bank transfer. 6. You receive another payment and you process it. This job implies only checks cashing, nothing else is required to work for us. We will never ask you any fees. If you know how to cash a check, this job is for you. Please don't expect to earn thousands of dollars right from the beginnings, we promise that you will earn more than $5,500 every month but first we have to advertise our products in US, you will surely make $500 every week during your first month of work. The cashier checks that will be processed by you can be cleared same day you receive the USPS delivery. To begin this job we need your FULL NAME AND ADDRESS (your postal address) FOR PAYMENTS that will be mailed (shipped) to your postal address: *Full name: *Address: *City, State, Zip code: *Phone number: From the moment we have your signed agreement along with your name and address, we will start the advertising program and ask customers to send checks to your address.

Or you can fax it by this number 484-518-6348.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Veronique Napier Your L2 Corporation Personal Manager mailto:partnership@l2corp.com

L2 Corporation 53, r Gaston Ramon 85000 Roche sur Yon, France Dear Pamela, Do not worry about such things, as our company double checks each check. All right, you should go to the bank and cash the check. As soon as the money becomes available to be wired, you should make an international wire transfer. I would like you to give me calculations, that is your 10%, international wire fee and the rest amount to be sent to us. Here are our bank account details of Beneficiary (Receiving Bank) and Intermediary (Send thru) bank. Please be very attentive while filling out the form and don't mix up anything. In fact you can ask the bank manager to help you fill out the form correctly.

As soon as you make a wire transfer, I would like you to email me a copy of the filled international wire transfer form for confirmation of the transaction and for me to check if the form is filled out correclty. Pamela, is everything clear to you? Please reply at once, when you read this email and let me know that you are going to the bank. I am waiting for your reply. In fact if you have any problems with filling out the wire transfer form, you can make a copy of it and email to me, so that I could have a look at this form and help you fill it out correctly. Sincerely, Veronique Napier Your L2 Corporation Personal Manager mailto:partnership@l2corp.com
Here is some more information, the website is www.l2corp.com, on another letter I received had the email address, veronique.napier@yahoo.com.

I was checking my checking account and saw a reverse on the check I was sent. I took a copy of the check before I cashed it and the envelope it came in. I called the phone number on it, asked why it was reversed, I was told that a stop payment was done. Then I looked at the name of the person on the check. Did a phone search, found him and then called. Mr. Leeson states, the draft was not authorized, he never purchased any alarm systems, his computer was hacked into.

Thank you all for your contributions. I was contacted by
Veronique Napier of L2 Corporation also, from my resume on Career Builder. She sent me the contract (which I NEVER printed out, nor signed, nor sent back to her) and I received a check for $1920 anyway. I figured this was a scam, and would relly like to bend this Veronique over and mess him/her up. any ideas?

I got this offer from Veronique Napier also. I asked her to send me a website address or any other info on her company so that I could check it out and the email came back 'undeliverable'. Coincidence? I think not.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

1. Q: Why don't you receive checks directly to your address and you need me?

A: Because within three months all our customers will forward US payments to our US headquarters and we decided to find a person who can handle all our business over there. Cashing US checks over here might take up to 30 days and some of our customers will chose to make this kind of payment and we can't afford to lose so much time.

2. Q: When do I get my share when I cash a check?

A: You will take your share instantly, as soon as you have cash in hand, you take your 12% and then send the rest of the funds to us. You will take your share as soon as you will manage to get the check cashed.

3. Q: Do I have to pay for the Western Union fees?

A: NO. Western union fees will be taken from the reminder amount after you will take your share from checks or withdrawals

4. Q: Where will I be sending the money after a check gets cleared?

A: As soon as you will have cash in hand all you have to do is to notify us via e-mail or phone and we will provide you all the instructions needed in order to complete the Western Union process.

5. Q: What information do you need from me so we can start work together

A: We will need your address, email and phone numbers where you can be reached. The address is needed so we can let our customers know where to send the checks.

6. Q: What name will appear on checks at PAYABLE TO field?

A: Checks will be made payable to you so you can cash them. This will be done until we will be able to come over there establish our business and open a business account with the company's name on it. Making checks payable to you will not make you liable for paying any taxes to IRS. Every year we will provide forms and papers proving that you have to pay the income taxes only on the funds you will earn (12%) from this and NOT TOTAL AMOUNT you will receive.

7. Q: Who will be my main contact until one of your representatives will come over here to open new offices

A: I, Manuel Martinez, I will be your main contact and you can call me or email me at any time with any questions you might have.

8. Q: How long does it takes for the first payment from your customers to arrive to me?

A: First payment will come within 10 business days after you will provide us your contact information. We will let our customers know where to send the checks, it takes within 3 to 7 business days for the check to arrive with USPS.

9. Q: What are the amounts on the checks I will receive?

A: Check amounts are between $1,000-$2,500/each.

10. Q: Do I have to pay any taxes for the amount of the checks I will receive?

A: NO. You will only pay taxes for the money you will earn (12% from total amount). At the end of the year we will provide you all forms and papers to prove that you sent the money to us like we said.

11. Q: Will I be doing anything illegal according to the US LAWS?

A: NO! Our company is a respectable one and we just want to launch our products to the US MARKET not defrauding our employees and customers so you can rest assured that nothing is illegal.

12. Q: If I would like to be paid once a month can I do that ?

A: As soon as we will arrive over there and if you will get good feedback with us we will re-negotiate your contract and set up a monthly salary for you if this is what you want. We will also add benefits as soon as the offices are opened over there. All we have to tell you is that you will earn up to $85,000/year in any way you will choose. It will be a little harder until we will start rolling all this process but from what we estimate from our sales this will be the highest you will get in a year.

13. Q: Will your company ask me any sensitive information such as, Bank Account Numbers, Credit Card Numbers, SSN, etc. ?

A: WE WONT need any of your private information, such as SSN, Mother Maiden Name or anything. WE do not want you to believe that this is a trick in order to get your personal banking information or credit card information. We are just trying to get along and extend our services and this is why we need someone who can take care of this thing!



14. Q: Can you please explain how does the entire process works ?

A: Of course, I will use a simple example for a check of $1,000. Let's say you agree to work with us and you email us your Name and Address where you can receive the payments from our customers. As soon as we will receive this email from you and have CONFIRMATION that you agree all our terms and conditions we forward your address to our customers in order to make the payments. Our customers will let me know as soon as payments have been sent. Most of them will use USPS as a shipping and handling and this is why it might take a little until you will receive the first check, and we won't be able to track it, so we just have to wait. As soon as I get the confirmation from my customer that the payment has been sent I will also email you and let you know that a payment it's on it's way. As soon as you will get the check you have to let me know that you received it so i can also update my customer. If you will manage to get the check cleared same day this will be great and you will apply for the bonuses mentioned. Now, as soon as you have cash in hand you have to email us and we will send you an email with full instructions regarding the transfer of the funds. As soon as you will get our email, you will take your share from the total amount UP FRONT (E.G.: Check value is $1,000 you will take your share immediately ($120)) and then take all other fees for transferring the funds along with the bonus from our share that will remain.

Basically all you have to do is to check your email daily as we will keep you updated from time to time and also as soon as payments will start to come we will let you know. You can also continue with your other job if you want to along as you can handle ours too.

15. Q: I am interested, can we setup an interview regarding this position?

A: If you still have further questions try to see if you can find your answer within these ones if not please email us. Unfortunately we cannot setup any interviews now as we do not have any representatives in US. We will be able to come and meet within the next few months when the new offices will be opened in you area!

16. Q: I agree with all terms and conditions, what is the next step?

A: Email us at: mmartinez@edesigns-worldwide.com your Name and Address where you can receive checks with the following subject: I AGREE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS - PLEASE SEND CONTRACT. Also include phone numbers and email address where you can be reached. Within 24 hours after we will receive this information we will forward you a copy of the contract you have to complete, sign and fax back to us.

IMPORTANT:

All you need is an established bank account, where you will deposit the
checks. It really depends where you cash the checks. We do not welcome new
bank accounts for our business until we will be able
to come over there for a few reasons. First, you won't be able to cash
checks fast, because the banks put at least a few weeks' hold to deposits
into a new account. As soon as we come over there we
will establish a business account with funds in it in order for the checks
to clear as fast as possible.

We do make background research on all the international customers before
providing our ecomerce packages to our customers.
We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to
you.(All checks are sent to you have been checked for funds availability) In
an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full
guarantee to cover the fees within 24 hours. That way you can feel
absolutely protected and safe.

The very same thing happened to me, Michael Van something with Ciparo Trading Co.

Beware with RanMed LLC they are the same people.

I would hope that the FBI would finds the ass holes and do something about this.

I got the check they sent me, I would never deposit a check into my account. They thought I would.

I just received an email from RanMed LLC, through careerbuilders. I thought that it was too good to be true and sound like a scam. I did some research first before deciding to go for it and found out that my I am correct. Thanks guys for the heads up, their has to be something that can be done.
