Frew Group Inc / Legitimacy of the Company

1 United States Review updated:

I received the following email response from the Frew Group Inc. It appears they claim to deal with Online Investments. This raised a flag for me right away. They claim a salary of $2300 per month for 2-3 hours part-time work and as high as $3000. I feel like this is another web scam to get people's hard earned money or for someone to hasve you to provide a bank account number so that the transactions can be processed through your account all awhile they are likely cleaning you out. Is this a legit business or what can you tell me about them? Please let me know as soon as possible. Appreciate your time and assistance.

My name is Judy May and I represent Frew Group Inc.

our requirements. So now you have a chance to become a Financial Agent.

    A friend of mine got the same email.
    He also found their website -> http://www.frew-groupmain.cc/e/index.php?page=r_98

    To me it is one of those "too good to be true" jobs.

    They are basically stating that "Clients" will transfer money to your account. You are expected to send a Western Union Money gram to "another Client" by 11 am the next day.
    To me, by the time the funds are found to be fraud, you have lost your money.

    Oh and FYI, Western Union is all over this world so why would a client not just use Western Union themselves? Specially if they have a bank that they can transfer funds to you? LOL even use the internet for Western Union transfer from your bank to a client.

    Don't do it folks!

    5/28/09 - I have checked this out pretty well. I have also talked to Judy May, she sounds like a Chinese, or Japanese person. She is hard to get a hold of. She asked me if I was interested and I asked if they had a Federal Tax ID #. To operate in the US you have to have one of those. She said yes, and that she would send it to me by way of email. I haven't seen it yet. I went to my bank (BOA) I have been banking their for more then 10 yrs. I told them about this, they said in order for me to do this I would have to have a business Lic. and their Federal Tax ID #. A regular check or savings wont work, I fact they told me if I got a regular checking or savings and started doing this the FED would start kicking the funds back to Frew. I left Ms. May several messages to contact me again with a legit Fed. Tax ID # and if she did not contact me again that I would report them to the National internet Fraud Website, Or lets make some money.
    I hope this helps. I will post what responses I get tomorrow. (5/29/09)

    Also, Judy May told me that I had 2 days to get the start up process going or she would not except me. That sounds like bull.

    On May 29, 2009 I also received en e-mail from Judy May of the Frew Group Inc. Since I have been actively looking for a job myself, I decided to look into this. However, before I could end my search gleaning the info, it suddenly disappeared from my computer! Strange and disappointed for a minute until I decided to look into the company's info and found all these negative comments about it. I wasn't planning on giving any personal information until I was certain of their legitimacy. But even their initial contact letter seemed fraudulent. It was God's will that the message disappeared.

    I got the same thing today. Total bs, seems like we've been finding more and more of these scams lately. I've gotten a lot. And what really pisses me off is that they all come from Career Builder. Not only do their job postings suck, but we get this junk mail!

    I also got this letter from Martine Wright today. Yahoo put it in spam and I foolishly read it and it got my hopes up high. I need a job. But I am willing to work in an office for eight hours a day.

    If you know of a real one let me know.

    thanks,
    Jim

    I got this e-mail (the one from Judy May) and assumed immediately it was a fraud. Out of curiousity I googled Frew Group and found this complaint board. Kudos to all who investigated the legality of this 'business' and who reported it to the appropriate agencies.

    Remember, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    I received the same email, under the CASE name.
    Always remember if it seems to good to be true IT IS!
    Never give any info to someone you do not know.
    It takes time for checks to clear, even if you make a deposit in an account and it shows that the funds or a portion of the funds are available, that does not mean a check is good. I would encourage everyone to talk to their bank to understand this better, talk to a branch manager. There is a difference between funds available and funds that are good.

    I have reported this to CareerBuilder. Many companies will indicate that they saw your resume on a legitimate job board because so many people are looking for work-- it is a numbers game. Most people looking for work use a major job board like Career Builder or Monster. Most of the time it is mere coincidence that you receive an email like this AND they actually saw your resume. They likely used a program that gleans email addresses from websites to get to you.

    DO NOT FALL FOR THESE even if they offer you a salary or wage. That is just the hook they use.

    I just received this email also today and it seemed really odd but I have been getting a lot of stuff like this but would not say from where so I believed it to be true when they said they got it from careerbuilder.com. Even though I know that fraud companies will look at careerbuilder and other websites. But then the bigger hint in this whole thing was when I looked at who it came from. For people reading this always read the to and from, from all your emails. The first is looking at the from. Now yes I know this sounds crazy but if it your real email address in the from then you know it is not from some random computer software that tries to guess email address and you get sent emails that are close to yours. Like if your is name15@whatever.com the software can come up with name!5@whatever.com and somehow when sent it is going to think it is your email. So that the first hint but the next biggest one was the To. First it came from like a message email website. Where you can put list of emails and do a mass email with on top of the the email that came from this "Judy May" has a gmail account. Which if you are a true company is going to purchase a server or online service and get your own domain and all that and have a @yourcompany.com email. So that was my biggest hint that this was a fraud. I hope this helps people if not I am sorry for wasting your time in reading this. But I do hope it helped. Take care.

    Well, I guess I'm one of the millions who got caught up in this. I opened a checking account with 50 bucks just to see what would happen. I then sent them the information. I waited, and believe it, they "approved" my application. Then, they said to wait 2-3 days for my first "task" to appear, and begin working. Well, guess what, after checking in at 6am EST today, and finding no new messages on their website, I waited 3 hours and checked back to their website, but it was gone!!!. So, within 3 hours their website was taken down. I even tried to email "Judy" and my supposed supervisor, "Jorge", but these emails came back "permanently undeliverable..!!! . Maybe that's the man upstairs looking out for those of us who went through with trying this. I just wish I had been bright enough to google this company first. Thanks to all of you who did the work before getting taken by these people. I have not seen anything try to go through that account I opened either. Maybe they figured that 50 bucks wasn't enough to steel...

    I have received the Judy May / Frew Group email as well. KEEP COMPLAINING! The powers that be need to know this is happening and the people who are doing this need to know they will NOT GET AWAY WITH IT! I have been looking for a job for 2 years and am sick and tired of these kinds of scams as well as "Internet Marketers" and MLM schemes. There ought to be a law! Oh - that's right - there is - but people need to report it, i.e. complain about it to the right people.

    I also received the same email from Judy May and I had received the same email a month before from another
    company by the name of the GFC group for a position and a financial manager because they do transfers with FedEX, DHL and other delivery mail companies. When I told them that my attorney needed to look my contract I did not hear from them any so I knew it was a scam because I don't need to open a checking account for you to do business with another company and I was requesting my payments in a paper check and I told them that I was not going to open an account. I am glad that I knew it was too good to be true especially the pay with no degree attached.
