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

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!!

I found an address and phone number for this company.
6631 Main st. Buffalo, NY 14221
phone 1 (716)989-6011 (this number supposedly doubles as the fax)
Called the number, got the machine. The voice was male and had an asian accent. Waiting on a call-back. Let me know if you find anything else about this company as when you apply they ask you some extreamly strange questions about your bank account. Questions no normal business would ask of you. Example:Account type, Bank name, bank address, account name, account number, routing number for ACH and Wire transfer, date account opened, how often do you use your bank account? Average amount of each operation? Prepaid? Daily withdrawl limit?
I just can't figure out why any company would need to know how much your average "operation" (ie, deposit, withdrawl) is. OR how often you use this account??? SCAM. but i have no proof, still waiting on a call back
