Is this a scam? Got an email for this “job” opportunity.?
Would you like to work online from Home/Temporarily and get paid weekly? We are seeking to offer you a Job position with our reputable company, Global Source Fabrics And Textiles. We need someone to work as a Representative/Book keeper in USA,Australia and Asia/Europe.This is in view of our expansion program to USA,Australia and Asia/Europe, where we presently dont haveany office. You don't need to have an Office and this certainly wont disturb any form of work you have going at the moment.

* The average monthly income is about 4000.00 USD.
* No form of investments from you.
* This job takes only 1-3 hours per day
About the job:
We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a new market (being the USA,Australia and Asia/Europe). There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion.We have decided to deliver the products upfront, it's very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent.Thus we need to get payments
for our products as soon as possible. Unfortunately we are unable to open Bank Accounts in the US,Europe, Asia & Australia without first registering the company name.
Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put them on hold. For fear of loosing the customers out rightly to our competitors.Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the USA/Australia,Asia, and Europe soon enough,as International Cheques take about 14 working days for cash to be made available.We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays
*Hence Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process.You are not involved in any sales. We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer (usually through FEDEX).The customer receives and checks the products. After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. About 90 percent of our customers prefer to pay through bank to bank transfer depending on the amount involved. That is why we have decided to open this new Job position for solving this problem.
Your tasks are;
1. Receive payment from Customers
2. Cash Payment at your Bank/Cash point
3. Deduct 10% which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed
4. Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of our offices as you will be instructed.
For example you receive payment of 3000.00 USD you take your income: 300.00 USD Send to us: 2700.00 USD First month you will have 15-20 transactions on 3000.00-4000.00 USD so you may calculate your income.For example 18 transactions on 3500.00 USD gives you 4410.00 USD Plus your basis monthly salary is 1000.00 USD Total: 5410.00 USD per month After establishing a close co-operation with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to earn more.Our payments will be issued out to you.Deduct your weekly salary and forward the balance to the company via western union money transfer or money gram money transfer We understand it is an unusual and incredible job position. This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time doing another job, you'll get good income and regular job.But this job is very challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for a hardworking,reliable and honest worker who will satisfy our requirements and will be a consistent representative. We are glad to offer this job position to you.
It seems a little fishy.
It is absolutely a scam. These people use this form of email because the average person reading it will realize that what they are suggesting is illegal at best, it's money laundering, but they make it attractive by offering to pay you 10% of what they get. They use the laundering aspect so that when you do eventually realize you have been scammed you will be reluctant to call the authorities because what they suggested you do is..illegal. What they do is take advantage of the fact that an internation cheque can take 14 days to actually go through, but Banks are required, in this country, by Federal law to made funds drawn against the cheque available within 3 working days..long before the cheque itself has cleared. Then they request that the ‘victim' send them the balance of the money, often by Western Union. The vicitm thinks everything is above ground until a week later when the bank alerts them to the fact that the initial cheque deposited was counterfeit, and the victim is not only liable then for paying back the bank the amount of money taken, but you also have to answer to the authorities for attempting to pass a counterfeit cheque. This is called a cheque-kiting technique. I used to get emails like these about ten times a day. They come in many forms, but generally they involve moving large sums of money out of foreign nations.
Watch out! Hope this helped.
Calculating my own (UK) Tax Return. How easy is it?
I run my own small business from my ‘home‘ in Northern Ireland (ie: UK) with no employees. I have been operating about seven years, and each year I pay to get my accounts done by a proper Chartered Accountant firm.
I don't have a massive turn-over and don't make a lot of profit, but it gives me a reasonable wage to live on. I need to cut a few costs during this credit crunch year or two. Can anyone please offer me useful advice on some of these points:
1. Is it reasonably simple to calculate your own accounts for the Inland Revenue? and thus not have to use an accountant? I obviously keep daily/weekly/monthly accounts (and do my own VAT returns quarterly) myself but my accountant puts everything together for ‘end of year accounts' each year which he submits to the Inland Revenue before 31st January.
2. Is it reasonably simple to input/send your accounts/tax return in ONLINE? or is it more trouble than its worth?
3. Does the Inland Revenue/Tax ONLINE calculate your information quickly and easily or does it cause a lot of bother with then maybe having to send more information into them, additional phone calls, recalculations, etc?
My accountant always said my accounts I gave them each year (for them to calculate final accounts/tax/etc) were always very neat, tidy, accurate and efficient, so Im just wondering if I can save a few pounds (their BIG bill!) and do my own ‘return' reasonably easily?
Basically, is it easy and hassle-free to attempt to do my own end of year CALCULATIONS and also the Tax Return ONLINE thus saving (a lot!) money….. OR is it just better to get my usual Accountant to do them (because maybe he has a better idea of what figures to accurately calculate, such as: personal use electric, business/personal petrol mileage, depreciation, etc). He calculates whatever he can legally for my personal/business use because I live and work from my house, and have only one vehicle, a van, which I use for business and personal use.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
You could probably do an acceptable to HMRC Tax Return yourself. It isn't that complicated. The online calculation is immediate, and any repayment is made promptly.
But I wonder how you will cope with your expenses, etc, and whether your accountant saves you more money in tax than he charges for fees? Did he give you a copy of his calculations for last year? If so, how much of it would you have known what to claim?
Why not let him do it this year, but also do a calculation yourself? Find out how arrives at his figures if you don't know from last year. Then compare.
Is There A Way To Watch NHL Games After They've Been Played?
I live in the UK and really enjoy watching NHL. Unfortunately because of the time difference, weekday games are usually on TV between 2-4 in the morning, as I work late this isn't as much of a problem -that's how I got into hockey; it being on ESPN when I get home from work or a night out!
Usually when I miss a game I want to watch, ESPN repeats it the next day and I just avoid the score! obviously this isn't ideal and recording is a nightmare of programming the hdd recorder and making sure the cable is on the right channel at the right time (my girlfriend is not a fan of hockey and more than once 20 mins into watching the game i recorded it switches to true blood!.
Does anyone know where i can watch games that have already been played online, preferably for free – as i already pay for cable and ESPN, I'd rather not not pay for ESPN Player as well!
Thanks in advance for your help!
You could buy a subscription to hockeystreams.com…
There is no free service that I know of…
Help I'm going crazy!! Online Masters or normal classes?
I've practically been crying everyday since Saturday because i don't know what the future holds or what to do. Which should I chose
Online Masters ‘m thinking about doing- Good because i save on bus fare to go to classes whole day Saturday, i get to spend quality time with my bf, I would feel less tired going from working mon to fri to full classes on Saturday, I get to pay in small installments per course, it's a bit cheaper, I don't feel imprisoned by a rigid time schedule, I get to take care of whatever else i need to on Saturday which I'm use to having free, it's the most prestigious university of the two
Online is bad because it's 3 yrs instead of 2 yr program and i want to get this over with and my friends are doing 2 yr programs, i'm scared of how potential employers will react. assignments look hard
Going to classes for masters at another university- Good because i can say i go to real classes, the plus is it's usually done in two years and i want to get this done with. assignments look easy
Bad because it's the less prestigious of the two, i cannot pay per course and a bit more expensive, i feel like a tired prisoner working mon to fri then full classes SATurday, my brain wanders off after 4 of 8 hours of classes, it takes over my life, no time for bf, family or shopping on sat which i'm use to. I went to one class as a trial and ended up crying for 5 hours when i got home because of the horrible exhaustion i felt. feelign guilty for ignoring my bf who i usually spend saturdays with
1st of all, it depends on what master, MBA? MSc? M.A.? M.Eng.? Some Masters like MBA and M.A. Are a good to go for online, and there're many prestigious universities offering it.
There are also online master that required you psychically sit for their final exam and attend workshops. Most online master that I've come across can finish within 1.5 – 5 years, the more module you take per semester, the faster you graduate, of course you must be able to cope and pass the grade.
2ndly, other than your bf, are you working? If you are working, then you'll need further consideration on attend-classes, especially if your job requires you to travel frequently.
Do you think you are going to make it in life?
I am a self employed programmer but lately the sales have died down since there are some idiots who offer free work online while us experience coders are pushed to the sideline. I am a loner with no friends or family, and I live a normal middle class life and if my sales do not pick back up I may have to work a regular job again but I am not sure if it would generate enough money to cover my basic necessities. I do not buy anything at all, never go out, I just sit at home and code and now that is being taken away.
I like to try and be a hard worker but the truth is that I must be genetically lazy since my mind is telling me to keep working but my body is shutting down and my eyelids get extremely heavy while my head is hurting to work a normal job. Yeah I did it for years when I was younger, and it came to a point where I stuttered, had blood shot eyes, and would fall asleep while driving since I was so wore out from work. Being self employed at home managed to keep me more active since I worked when I fully rest and was ready, but that may no longer generate the money I need. Not sure what to do. I am 30 years old with my own house and a paid off car, I calculated my expenses just for the basics and it comes to $2000 per month and all of the jobs around here pay $8 – $10 per hour which isn't enough.
I know bro stuff is crazy with the economy being horrid and people not doing justice for all sorts of trades, practically working for free in some cases. I have my own problems and about to join the marines to save my ass and continue college while in. Do I think I will make it in life? Seriously man I dont know. I know I want to and I will try even though I have wasted lots of time making bad mistakes in my past. I live in a small town where the jons are all gone and have been for a long while now. If you wanna make money on the side to help out or even go big time, i recommend going out finding lots of steel,scrap metal,aluminum (stay away from copper it raises to many eyebrows if you dont have a license of some sort like electricians have). Wooden pallettes aswell. You can make a killing off that stuff taking it in the right places. Just look around on google earth and if you live by a river go to the bottoms and stuff floats up all the time. Buy a trailer bed and a tarp and start collecting. I have made thousands within a few weeks of collecting metal/steel scraps. Call around and see who offers the best prices for that and the aluminum. Do online surveys and a bunch of them. You can make some pretty good bank off that like 3-400 a month if you bust your ass on them.
