Zicasso Handcrafted Travel / Company Uses Prospective Employees Bank Accounts to Transfer Money
I applied to work for this company as a Travel Coordinator and they required photocopies of all my identity be scanned and emailed along with my personal banking information including daily withdrawal limit and the daily hours of operation of my bank along with my personal bank account number. They wanted me to participate in a ten-day probationary period where the company would have access to my personal funds and have me transfer their business deals in and out of my own personal bank account.
This Probationary Period offer was sent to me on July 20, 2015 and here is the part that raised a red flag.
"Scheme of work with orders during the probation period: During the period of probation, an applicant will process 8-10 test orders. Payments will be sent from clients e-mail money transfer (interact) and wire transfer systems to an applicant's personal bank account. After receiving these payments, an applicant will send it to the managers of the company all over the world with RIA transfer, Money Gram, Western Union and other systems."
I don't think it's common practice for a business to use an applicant's personal banking in order to transfer their clients money, the applicant does not even work for the company yet and they are utilizing their financial institution to conduct what looks a lot like money laundering.
