This people find your resume in Workopolis or other job search websites, then they contact you via email or phone and propose that you collect for them using your bank account and keep 1 % of the collection and wire the difference to them overseas. They also ask you to sign a contract withthem, in wich they worded in a way they make you look like the employer not the employee offering them a base salary of $2000.oo per month. Funny when they call base salary when it refers for you to pay them, when it come for them to pay you they just say that they will pay for you. (what?).

Be careful don't fall for it. I think that the job search engines should look closer at who is posting job opportunities out there.

Thank you,

I am attaching the part of the contract that makes you looks like the employer and liable. The rest of it looks like a normal contract.

4.1. The Beneficiary will receive from the Representative a base salary of $2000 per month.
4.2. We will pay for you by paper check $2000 per month, at the end of each month.
4.3. The Representative will receive a fixed 7% net from each of the ammounts wired in his bank account, which will be deducted from the total amount before sending the balance to the Beneficiary.
4.4. The salary will be paid to the Representative by paper check at the end of each month.
4.5. Any fees including but not limited to funds being transferred or any other type of bank/wire/money transfer transaction will be supported by the Beneficiary, the fees will be deducted from the total amount before being sent to the Beneficiary.
