Premium Financial Services And Advance Finance Group LLC Are Both Frauds

I'm still waiting for additional information on the first company, Premium Financial Services from the state of New York, if anyone there really cares this has fraud potential on it.

I researched the alleged fake "Management Team" and found out this company, Premium Financial Services has a sister also known as Advance Finance Group LLC.

You can see the websites are virtually identical.

Read up on Advance Finance Group LLC here if you are interested.

Both to me, and they haven't proven anything back with emails to substantiate they are not fraud on unsuspecting persons who believe the unrealistic salaries for seemingly simple work efforts.

Anyone else with comments?

More soon I hope.

Premium Financial Services Is A Complete Fraud Job Offer!!

This scam I received by email is just simply amazing. I guess the persons hosting this fake job site figure it can't help but look pretty and neat and legitimate. But in my viewpoint, it has fraud all over it.

First, let's read the verbatim email:

from Gerrit Payson
to XXXX@xxx.com
date Tue, May 19, 2009 at 3:45 PM
subject International company filling up local vacancies
mailed-by hotmail.com

It's me again...writing in the non-bold type. This site actually gave an address of where to visit to find out additional information. The URL is supposedly this where you go and click on to learn more about the company.

If you go to that website mentioned in the email, you get an amazing page with lots of information and things that would make any job searcher drool.

Just look at the
many jobs out there on the website.

Wow, so many jobs, such a great salary and for what seems to be simple, simple work.

In fact, look all over the site for fake information and all the questions you can have asked that are nearly as vague as the rest of the website.

It's a fraud...very much a fraud and I plan to uncover this one much more completely because this email offer of employment is about the best one I have ever received to offer such a convincing job opportunity.

Interesting to me also is if you do a WHOISon the domain name, you see the following. Try it for yourself by going to the link just above. The domain is pf-service.net you have to enter.

Here's what it shows:

Hey it's me again...notice this website supposedly is maintained in the city of Dallas, and the state of beijing as shown above.

When you look at the jobs, notice the best paying ones in the United States, Canada, and Australia are the ones you can apply for. And lucky for you (gag!!) these are also the ones that pay a ridiculous amount of money, the pay shows for a Financial Agent to be $2,300 a month.

Also, notice the contacts with a huge amount of typewritten meaningless blather related to the individuals who supposedly work for this company in leadership capacities.

Notice further no email addresses or phone numbers are given for these persons either.

Notice our original email came from Gerrit Payson at a hotmail email account then the sender's name has suddenly changed above to Stephan Williams.

Again, this is complete and utter fraud. Don't apply and don't think you're ever going to get paid for working for this company.

Be careful out there!!

More on this amazing website of fraud later on!!

Update To The Email Scams Blog

Hello everyone, thanks to everyone who comes by to visit and/or includes comments about the blog.

I'm out of state for a few weeks traveling and enjoying some of the National Parks out west so I won't really be able to do a good update for about another week or two.

I have noticed I'm not receiving nearly as many scam email offers for jobs but hopefully those will pick up so I can share what information I have on them.

Until then, please be careful when responding to any questionable job offers by email. As one person commented today, you might could open an account just for the purpose of trying to scam the scammers, but I don't see that as doing much good.

Just my two cents mind you.

Fees, overdrafts, and the like would cost you more than the effort to try and get money from the scammers.

Again just my two cents.

I'd enjoy hearing from anyone with comments or someone that has taken the job offers and later found it to be as it was by email or completely the opposite.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Have a great week!!

Fake Job Offers That Are (Cough, Cough) For Real??

While I take a short break from commenting on the emails that come in with job scam offers, I'd like to ask my readers to post comments about the experiences they've had with some of the job offers mentioned within this blog or others that sounded questionable. I'd really enjoy hearing from those who really did get paid for work at these jobs and the experiences with the "hiring" types that are within these job offer emails.

Any comments are welcomed. I still believe without a doubt each one I've posted is totally fake...but I would welcome a comment here to retract anything I have described as fake that is really legitimate.

Have a great week!!
