    Post Inchcape... Never heard of them

    My wife got the same type of offer and wants to believe that it's legitimate. So I told her I'd check into it. The position is Escrow Officer... Yeah, sounds important

    First, nobody has called her and talked to her, BUT want to offer her $4500/mo.

    Second, the email domain is Aol.com... Really!? Domain names with like 50 addresses are a dime a dozen...
    Wouldn't you at least buy "inchcape.biz, .net, .something!? (Not that I'm here to educate these low lives)

    Third, they sent a contract for her that is supposed to be legally binding, but my 12 year old step-daughter
    could have done a hell of a better job with grammatical errors (and I am by NO MEANS a English professor)

    Fourth, they sent an FAQ with the pretense of "if you have any questions, you can Email us @" . WTF? Why
    can't I call and talk to someone? Thank you for calling Inchcape, for English press 1... WTH not if 1 in
    America is SPANISH?! Besides, the position they are canvassing for is supposed to require an American!

    Fifth, as if this isn't enough red flags, they need her to take checks from them, deposit them into her
    PERSONAL account: check cashing scam, isn't there a name for this? Is it the same thing in the movie with
    Leonardo DeCaprio? True story, by the way.




    I tried to connect on LinkedIn to talk with people about it, but don't have a premium account.
    Just looking for other things that will educate us to these types of scams in the future. I realize its too good to be true. And that is usually the first rule of determining a scam. So I am posting the FAQ and contract for educational purposes only. Any and all comments are welcome.

    There is never any need for a private individual to be a middleman in financial transactions. They give your wife a "check(s)" and then ask her to send funds by Western Union or some such deal and she is supposed to make a profit as they sent her more than she will be sending back out. Days later the money is gone the bank will come to the firm conclusion that the check, which looked very good, is in fact bogus. That will be the beginning of a complete nightmare for your wonderful and trusting wife.

    The bad grammar, lack of verifiable info about the company, the willingness to hire totally unskilled people, freebee e-mail accounts and all the rest is par for the course in these scams. Luckily your wife has an incredible husband that had the good sense to check this deal out!

    Thanks for posting. I found the following over at scamwarners. I would agree with the vonpaso who responded to you over there, post the email addresses and/or text of the email, unless it is below. That way if someone either searches the text and or email address it will show up on google and link back to the scam pages.

    SBM said it all, this is total BS.

    I believe this is one of the scams covered in Lynndel's book, and if I remember correctly, there are some serious consequences in the form of fraud and forgery charges besides losing the cash.
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!
