How does an easy job as a Payment Processing Agent for $3,000 a month sound to you, and all you need is internet access and email. In addition, there are commissions from every payment received, and the salary may be increased up to $4,500 after the trial.
This is a job for money mules, an old scam that we reported long ago, where you will be asked to re-transfer money received from a scam victim. If there is any investigation done, you might be implicated.
The the scammers may extend this to a fake check scam. They will send a check for you to “process”, and ask you to wire cash out instead.
The bank will clear the check, and after you send the money, the bank will call you to return the money after they found the check is fake.
