Why would anything call itself the Sour Tour? This has "garbage" written all over it.

Actually I got this email about two weeks ago and responded, knowing for sure that it was a scam. However the response i got was a mixed one. They company is a front, but it's by a company called Swedish Circle Tours. I was told that they use Sour Tour as a cover to better screen their prospective employees, but to be frank, i don't see how. Anyway, the job is simple, all you do is forward mailing information and confirm travel dates. It's like a secretary position, however the pay is not what they say. They say it's 4000 a month and it's closer to 400 a month. Still, for about 10-12 hours of work a month, I can't complain about it much.
Also, they explained that the promotion and raise = +$100 a month and they add another hour or two of work. it's good to do over the weekends but this aint no get rich quick scheme. At least its not a total scam.

Thanks for the comments. I do have one for "george 88" if he reads this comment. How are you paid for this work? By check, money order, paypal? Is your check drawn on a u.s. bank? Did you create a paypal account just for your pay? My experience with this company involves fraudulently processing payments which eventually means you lose money because of the company scam. I would like to know more please.

THIS IS A SCAM AWARENESS NOTICE

THE SCAMMER is Karina Weste from SOUR TOUR LICENSE NUMBER 00012-475N1, TULEGATAN 182, STOCKHOLM, SE-58745, SWEDEN. Tel. + 46-855822672.

Karina Weste email is: karina.westte@gmail.com

Sour Tour is offering via Karina Weste a Sales Executive Representative position.

Basically they sight that their clients are traveling and will need funds. Then they will sendfunds via a cheque to the Sales Executive Representative. This cheque may be coming from a person and the money may be on the account.

Then they will ask you to cash the cheque, keep 5% of the funds and send the remainder via WESTERN UNION to another person.

THE CHEQUE HAS BE FORGED and ALL THIS IS A FRAUD!!

If you get anything like this report Karina Weste to “Interpol” as they are going to arrest her shortly.

She is a liar and a fraudster, people like her NEED to be put behind bars and I have an order out on her in Stockholm now.

I still don't understand why such people will manipulate the need of others to work and have good flexible job!!
I got the same email from Sour tour and they sent me many documents for employment and company license and a woman was calling me and she sounded nice!!

I just don't understand what is the benefit behind harming people this was!

I just got an email from a Miranda Lopez saying the same thing except the email was mirandalopez@turisttour.com. Well turisttour.com is supposedly under construction. The funny thing is that there is really a website by a woman named Miranda Lopez. She is a tourist. Its sad that someone would use someones name for their own gain.

The job description said the same thing though: $4,000/month, part time hours, and the fact that you would be supporting clients from the US while they are in Europe. Definitely a scam.

Hello, I got the same job offer November 12, 2012 from a henry felipe dutra xavier henrygatinho2009@hotmail.com

I've gotten so much better in recognizing scams, all I can say is "if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is" beware folks they think all people in America are rich and hopefully stupid.

Try entertaining them at first but once they ask for money stop your communication. It is a scam once they ask for money in exchange for a job

If they ask for money in exchange of a job stop communicating with them.. Got a similar email, so promising at first but later they demanded for money before they can process the application. I found it later that it was a scam. Luckily I did not gave in to their demands

received today at my work email from Migueldian691@hotmail.com and the email is signed Angelica. Sanchez@SOUR-TOUR.COM Same job description and says 4000 per month.

This same email came to me today! (11/14/2012) The first thing that let me know it is a scam is that it was not addressed to me, yet I received it. This let me know it must have been sent to me BCC. Second, the person who sent the email was not the person who signed the email. Third, what company would use the name SOUR when it comes to touring? That is not a name that people will want associated with a vacation.
