[Author’s Note: If you have any follow-up emails sent by this scammer, PLEASE post them below.]

I know this may look like a legitimate well-paying job, but this is absolutely 100% a scam. The clue lies within this line: * Organization of payoffs straight from clients to employees by bank wires and money transfer systems (a business bank account is set up with our assistance)

No company needs a random person to handle their payments/employee checks. They will send you fake checks and they’ll tell you to deposit them into the bank account you recently setup. Trust me, the check is guaranteed to be fake and it WILL eventually bounce. However, banks are required by law to make the funds you deposit immediately available to you even if the check hasn’t yet cleared.

The scammer is then going to ask you to take the money in your account, and send it off overseas to a “client” or “employee” via Western Union or Moneygram. Since you have access to the funds, this won’t be a problem. Unfortunately, the check WILL bounce. It may bounce in a few days, or it could be a few weeks or even months, but I absolutely guarantee you that the check will bounce. This means you just sent away a few thousand dollars to a scammer via a method that isn’t traceable and the money YOU will be 100% responsible for paying that money back to the bank. The scammer will be long gone at this point.

Never, ever, ever accept any type of position that requires you to handle someone else’s money.

These types of “jobs” are ALWAYS scams.

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

  2. I fell for this, but It was early NOV when I got the email. I did check it out and I did not get all these messages about it being a scam. By this time it was Beacon Construction and no one posted about it. I had surgery not too long after signing the paper work. I am now in a bad situation.

  3. I too just got the Beacon Construction Company “job offer”. I was immediately suspicious for several reasons. first was that they could not use proper english to save their lives. Second, They are offering me a position, then asking me to fill out an application. Third, they are using a Gmail account, even thought they list a fake email at the bottom of their letter.
    I have reported this to the Federal Trade Commission. Any of you that have gotten this recent letter from Beacon construction company should also report them to the FTC. here is the website:
    https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/
    I also googled the address listed on the papers they send you if you filed out their on line form…its a small house in a residental area of Florida!

  4. I received the same email and thank god I read these comments!!!I also thought it was too good to be true. I wonder if the Beacon construction knows they are using their website in connection of this scam!!!Thank GOD for the reviews!!!!

  5. I have been job searching recently and I got this email this morning. Thank you for this website because when I copied and pasted the woman’s name and company name – this popped up!

  14. wow thats actually where u live. crazy small world. and ive noticed craigslist is full of spam jobs and careerbuilder as well. more people need to work on reporting them and getting them shut down. as well as i think careerbuilder could do a majorly better job cleaning up spam jobs.

  15. I got this email and wondered how this company can trust you so much with so much money without even seeing you. They want you to set an accoung in your name but then they want you to send them the pass word and account information. But they dont want you to mention them to the bank in any way shape or form.

    How can we prosecute this kind of preying on people who dont know how to deal with business scammers ? .

    Reply
  16. i got this email too, but it is too dumb for a company to email me from a gmail account. total scam, i don’t even know how people can be this desperate to believe this crap. let’s not even go into the wire transfer scam part, who the hell emails you to let you know that you have just earned a $54,000 annual salary job with benefits included? without dressing up and going to a brick-and-mortar office building for an interview? without qualifying what makes *me* so ideal for this job?? what the hell? are people *really* this dumb?

  17. I use a MAC email program and I have all of the info that she used for internert providers and an email name that she really uses. I will post it here. Victor, she is not even in the US. When you speak to here there is a 2 second delay during the calls…she is some where in Europe. My cell phone compnay informed me that the 407 number i called was a trac phone and it came back to being purchased in Kiev.

  18. “Being that this may be a scam.”

    This is absolutely 100% a scam. Please DO NOT send this scammer any more of your information. You will lose thousands of dollars and most likely your identity. She’s not operating within the confines of the US.
