So I applied for this job and it supposedly for a Swedish Steel company who operates in Canada (Where I live). They want me to operate as their representative here to process their payments with customers located here.
The thing that made me question the whole thing is they want me to open a new personal bank account to move around the payments because they claim it's difficult to open a business account.
Does seem like a scam? I'm not sure because it's my first time applying for something like this.
Yes it is absolutely 100% a scam. Cease all contact immediately. No real business should ever ask its employees to do transactions for it in their personal bank accounts; if you do, you will be breaking the law and may go to jail.
Time to look for employment in a more wholesome and legitimate sector, such as carpentry. No scams in woodwork!
It's a classic scam, none of it is true. They're trying to get you to launder illegal earning / forged bank checks, and when the authorities investigate (almost immediately) they melt away and you're left holding the baby. The mounties always get their man. Don't let it be you.
the police won't prosecute op, because its expensive and doesn't achieve their true goal. they'll just confiscate the account and what he has,and investigate/interrogate him. i'd say contact the mounties, and see they want anything to do with this.
