    I have been in contact with a recruiter from www.worldcapitalunion.com. I am just curious if it is a scam or not? Anyone familiar with it? It looks legit, but I am just curious. They wanted my work and school information. They are also wanting me to open up a bank account for transactions. Like I said, I am just curious if this is legit or not. Thanks!

    I don't know anything about the company.

    What are you looking to do with them? I am a bit confused by recruiter do you mean sales person? They say they are consultants helping people setup corporations in various tax haven countries. Why are they asking you to setup a bank account for "transactions"?

    Sorry, the e-mail was actually from a hiring manager. Here is the e-mail:


    Dear Daniel,

    I received your reply and thank you for your interest. My name is
    Lucas Schubert and I am the hiring manager of the World Capital Union Co. My responsibilities include hiring new employees and informing them of all details connected with the working process. I will tell you about our company's activity for the open vacancy of the Regional Representative.

    The main activity of our company is providing intermediary services in the financial sphere. You may get acquainted with our website
    "worldcapitalunion.com" to learn more about the provided services. An important criterion of the company's activity is a well-consolidated team which completes the tasks. That is why, first of all, we value such qualities as duty performance, responsibility and industry.

    The Regional Representative is an important member of the team.
    His/her main responsibilities are control and processing of the deals
    between the company's customers in territory of the country. The
    activity is controlled by a supervisor on every stage of the working
    process. Such approach to organizing provides our employees with
    remote jobs. Each beginner in our company should pass the probation period which lasts for two months; after that the he/she becomes our permanent employee. This is necessary for us to understand that you are responsible and for you to understand if this job suits you.

    During the probation period you will be gradually trained and receive salary. Your supervisor will control your work. At the beginning he/she will communicate with the customers. After you pass the probation period you will have to visit our office in New York for signing the long-term agreement (the trip is paid by the company).

    Now what concerns your salary:

    You will get fixed salary and a percent from each deal. During the
    probation period your salary will be $1,500 a month, after the
    probation period it will be $3,000. The percent from each deal is 5% which is paid after each processed deal.

    You should remember that this is a remote job, that is why all your
    activity will be performed with the help of a computer and a phone.
    You will not have to sell or offer goods or services.

    So, if you are ready to start working and earning money, please fill
    in the Employment Application form attached to this e-mail. After I
    receive and consider it, I will be able to make a conclusion if you
    suit us or not. We will conclude the Employment Agreement and you will start working.

    Should you have any questions please feel free to ask me. You may also ask our employees with the help of Live Support on our website.

    Best regards,

    I filled out the employment application which asked about previous employers as well as schools and got this reply back:


    Dear Daniel,

    I received your reply and considered your information. I am glad to
    inform you that you are quite appropriate for working in our company as a Regional Representative. On the next stage we will conclude the Employment Agreement after which you will be able to start working.

    Please kindly find the attached Agreement, Please read it carefully,
    print it out, and sign. After you sign the Agreement you may send it
    to me by two means: you may scan it and send it to my e-mail in .PDF or .DOC format; or you may send it by fax.

    Also an important aspect of working in our company is fast and clear
    carrying of all deals. For tax reduction for our customers and for
    convenient transference of money - our employees use personal bank accounts for carrying deals between the customers of our company. Thus, you may control all receipts of money from the customers, carry out its monitoring and distribute it where necessary; all this may be performed when you are at home. You may use your current account in the bank or open a new one. I recommend you to use a new account in any available bank. To provide the information on your bank account, please find the "Accountinf.doc" document and fill it in.

    After I receive the signed Agreement and your bank account
    information, we will employ you and you will become employee of our company. Starting from this date you will get your basic salary after each calendar month. We will also need time to distribute duties for you - that is why you will fully start working after several days after you fill in the necessary documents.

    As the works advances you will be provided with all necessary
    information. That is why I recommend you to check your e-mail several times a day and stay in touch by your cell phone. We will provide you a supervisor who will direct and control your work. Should you have
    any questions or requests, please feel free to contact me.

    Do NOT get involved with them. A big red flag alert is that the say 'For tax reduction for our customers and for convenient transference of money - our employees use personal bank accounts for carrying deals between the customers of our company. ' What could happen here is that they will deposit funds into your bank account. Then they will have you transfer said funds to one of their so called clients. Then after you have sent the money, you will shortly find out that the money they sent you was not real and you will just have lost whatever funds you sent to the so called client. Let's be realistic here - if they are who they say they are - why do they need you to open up a personal account to transfer their funds to other people??

    Can I say that this is a scam with certainty? No - but there are definitely red flags here so you should definitely avoid them.

    This is because we all know that Nigerian Princes are concerned with the tax implications of moving their inheritance from country to country.

    To save yourself the time and fake employment paperwork of getting scammed, you can just send me a check for all the money in your account. LOL.
