I also received a similar e-mail as shown below and there is someone by the name of Peter Afia who has a textile company but he also states that the offer is a scam as noted below.

Here is the offer:

2008 Annual Year-End Job Offer- Ref:PCODE40112RI
M- Textiles and Fabrics
Hasler-Korner
Werner & Elisabeth
Schwlerstrasse 3b
CH-8712 Stafa
Switzerland

Good day,

We are offering the position of a representative for our company from home temporary or permanently. We are in need of someone to work for the company as our investment manager / bookkeeper either in the USA,UK AND CANADA. This is in view of our not having a payment officer presently in the USA, UK AND CANADA. You don't need to have an Office and this certainly wont disturb any form of work you have going at the moment.

We have sales representatives all over the world to distribute our products and as you must know that it's not easy to start a business in a new market. There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion. Hence we have decided to deliver the products upfront, though 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 accounts in the United US without first registering the company name. Presently with the amount of orders we have, we cannot put them on hold for fear of loosing customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the US as soon as it is received, as international checks takes about 14 working days before the availability of cash. We lose about $75,000 of net income each month because we have money transfer delays.

Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales. Our marketing scheme makes direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received and sorted we deliver the product to a customer. 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 checks and money orders based on the amount involved. We have decided to open this new job position for solving this problem.

1. Receive payment from customers
2. Cash Payment at your Bank
3. Deduct 10%, which will be your pay on payment processed
4. Forward balance after deduction of pay to any of our
regional offices

For example you've got $3800, you take your income: $380 send to us: $3420 minus western union charges. First month you will have 3-12 transactions on $3800-$4000 in each package so you may calculate your income. For example 10 transactions on 3800 gives you 3800.00 USD Plus your basis monthly salary of $1000 will Total: 4800 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 in your name andyou can have them cashed in your bank or other Cashing Services.

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. As for taxes, you will receive a W-2.And as you know this includes Federal Income Tax, State Income Tax, and FICA (Social Security and Medicare), FICA (Social Security and Medicare), FUTA (Federal Unemployment Tax), and SUI (State Unemployment Tax). We hope this is satisfactory.

You'll have a lot of free time doing another job; you'll get good income and regular job. This job is challenging and there is a need for you to understand it and we are
optimistic that in a short while from now, you will have a complete knowledge of the job.

We are looking only for the worker who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest assistant. We are glad to offer this job position to you. If you feel that you are a serious and earnest worker and you want to work for us then send your info in the format below and we will get back to you within 24hrs.

Warmest Regards,

Peter Afia.
