    Ah~~~thank you,Thorstan! I was condidering to take their test......... But I was wondering if I can offer them a bank account which has no money. The salary is very attractive though,work online,just need go to bank to withdraw their cash,then transfer it. Yeah,maybe a liar

    Kathy, I get a dozen offers a week to teach English in Spain and work for fat salaries in London hotels(all I have to do is send them 500 Euros for my visa application), not to mention all those e-mails from the poor daughters of assisnated African generals who have turned to me for help in extracting their father's fortunes from their home country. Oh, and I've won both the Shell and Exxon e-mail lotteries a dozen times each.

     Google Nigerian 411 and get back to me.

    Peter,thanks!!! I never knew Nigerian 411 until just now. THE NIGERIAN 411 EMAIL SCAM!!OMG,maybe the mail I got was sent by Nigerian,too.SCAM,SCAM,SCAM,damn it! haha,it's really funny,I ever received such emails(about three) that got fortunes.But the condition is opposite.A dying, rich and Russian man wanted me help him.He wanted me to donate his all money to his country for him.Because he was afraid that his families kept his money instead of giving country.

    - There's an old cliche, too good to be true.

    - Fortis is a big financial institution. Basically they don't outsource online work.

    - Obvisouly this is a trap. They just want to get your bank account info.

    - Thus, forget it and enjoy your holidays.

    Hahahaha ... Kathy ... I am not good enough to work for any big corp (?) like Fortis, so if I ever received such an invitation, it is likely to be a scam :)

    I also know that I dont have any rich relatives in some remote or unknown country, so I am sure no one would leave me any large inheritance :)

    Thank you for the great laugh...

    Kathy, the phrase Mr. G was alluding to was "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." I really think this is advice to live by.

    You did not apply for this job. You are not qualified for it. You do not command the salary it offers. There are currently zero legitimate companies sending email job offers to underqualified people who have not applied for them.

    There are also currently zero legitimate jobs in the world that require you to pay an application fee, a processing fee, a visa fee, a government licence fee, or provide your bank account information. Don't waste your time trying to figure out how to avoid being scammed by taking your money out of the bank account first, because there is no potential benefit.

    No,Dingdang,I also don't have such relatives,I don't know at all those people,I'm sure they're all scammers,so I left them alone. But about this mail,I'm not sure.Because I registered my info on HOT JOB of yahoo,three days later a woman sent me a mail about offering me a part-time job and gave me some information as well.

    Let me know how that works out. When you become a successful financial manager and you've got money of your own to invest, there's a bridge I'd like to sell you.

    Hi,thanks for your information,Moming! Sure,I'll forget it forever. "Why do I have to use my personal account? The reason you use your own account for this job is because the position is considered to be an Independent Contractor position, which requires Payment Processing Agents to use their own account during their probationary period. Once employed Full-Time we would provide you with a bank account through our company." This is they sent me.

    ...

    Hahahaha... I am not familiar with HOT JOB of Yahoo, but I know for a fact that it does not cost much to register on 51job.com and zhaoping.com as a "employer" and get access to thousands of resumes of job seekers, e.g. a lot of senior agents in many of China's insurance companies are doing that to recruit fresh new agents ... ...

    If you are looking for advice from people who have been recruited from Fortis (or similar large corp) via this path, I doubt there is any here on this site ...

    The guys have said plenty already, so if you want to give it a try with an empty bank account, do go ahead, and we all wish you well :)

    Do remember this Cantonese saying: 没有那么大的蛤蟆随街跳的

    I think it's so cute that you're 25 and consider this seriously... I guess this is why China is a great place to "吸引投资". Well, I should admit I probably looked at one of these scams seriously the first time I saw it too.

    OK,I see,I know myself,really don't own that ability.Give up. Thank you! Actually,I don't want to change my job at presebt.Registering there is just for fun.
