Bep Finance Pty Ltd 14

This was submitted as a comment, but I decided to promote it and give it a post of its own.  This is the classic scam where the scammer sends you a payment (in this case anything from 2000 – 10,000 Euros) and then asks you forward most of the money to a third party.  Within days the original payment is withdrawn by your bank as being fraudulent, leaving you out of pocket to the scammers.

No company anywhere ever hires an unknown person to process payments.  These jobs are ALL scams.

    Hi I got this job offer through Total Jobs too. Not too sure about it being legit set up empty bank account to use just in case. However it took so long to get bank account set up I emailed Paul to find out if job still available. Strangely enough email bounced back. Only then did I think to google Bep Finance and lo and behold I found you guys. Its very upsetting when you’re looking for work, money is tight and someone emails saying they’ve looked at your CV and you’re just what they are looking for. You suddenly feel valued again. To have that slapped back at you is very very depressing! Glad I haven’t been stung.

    Hi people, Hi “Paul”,

    I’ve got the same offer 2 days ago. Even if it was clear from the start it is a template letter where only the name is changed,i must admit it sounded kind of interesting … luckily i found this blog where this scam is described.

    I would say we all join. (Yes, Paul we will. Be happy!)
    I don’t guarantee i will make the first transfer to the 3rd party. May be i will buy something nice for my wife…

    I have also received this job offer, but am always dubious about filling in any bank details without seeing or speaking to a person. So thought I would google it and found this….needless to say I wont be joining them but the idea of keeping the money sounds good. What if we all did that? They would soon quit lol

    Ha.. I too had this one. I emailed Paul and asked him if it was a scam. Of course he mailed back and said no and they were a legit business. Then I almost signed the document but decided to check the web. Found this blog.. thank you. So I wrote this email back to Paul
    Dear Paul

    I feel rather disappointed. I loved Australia and felt that this would be one place I could rely on honest, down to earth people

    Do you know there is a blog page regarding your ‘scam’?

    Maybe it isn’t. Maybe you have a great business idea but it is not being executed properly. Once chap actually says he has 8K of your money!!!.

    I notice you don’t have contact numbers anywhere on your emails or web page… makes it a bit more suspicious.

    There are thousands of people who are looking for real opportunities to work from home due to having children, suddenly unemployed or just wanting to do something for themselves. A lot of these people are not rich people or indeed have no money at all.

    To try to scam these people is really underhanded Paul. Why try and take away what people don’t have?

    Your business idea sounds strange and why people would want to give their money to a third party to handle money on again is beyond my way of thinking but perhaps there is a legitimate reason. If there is perhaps you could share it with me to see if this is a real job.

    You would have a good income if this were all true – so if it is not, why not invest your time in looking into this properly and then looking for agents.

    Please be aware though that scams like this are now being investigated and the more people you hurt the worse it is going to be for you.

    I look forward to your reply.

    I received the same emails after signing up with Total Jobs – it had to be a scam! How can Total Jobs allow this type of thing though, it makes you wonder how many other jobs are scams that use their site! It’s made me think twice about using their site any longer.

  7. Reply Paul Jul 5,2011 1:38 pm

    I got this email the other day, via the website, where they say they have viewed my CV. I emailed totaljobs to ask if they’re dodgy, as it just sounds like they are. Anyway, awaiting response, but the details above are the same as what I got via email from Paul Digby.

    HAHA I kept the money and all i got was hassle, countless calls, texts and emails.
    I knew it was a scam just seeing how much i can annoy them, this was six months ago and have still got the £8.5k in my account, havent spent it though, have not heard anything since april but will wait to see what happens!!!

  9. Reply Jason Jul 4,2011 6:53 pm

    I also got this great offer…..about five times now and it’s starting to wear a bit thin.
    Does anyone know what happens if you just keep the money and give it back to the bank? Do the scummers….sorry, scammers call the police?…hahahaha…at least the bank can track it all back and have their money as well….

    Hello, yesterday I got the same letter and job offer. They asked me to open a bank account in EUR and I should be a fund transfer administrator. The text was the same.

    This account is empty. I was suspicious when I read, but as I am unemployed, of course this job would be great for me.

    Can somebody tells me what would happen if I fill theirs agreement and start the so called job?

    I did not understand correctly, that is why I ask the so called process.

    If they send money and I send it to a third party, after this in some days theirs bank will ask back the amount and this case I will pay for nothing as I already transferred money to a third party? Do I understand correctly?

      @Marianna – you will received a “payment”. You will then be asked to forward most of it to a third party. The original payment to you will be withdrawn by your bank as fraudulent. You will then have no way of recovering the money you sent to the third party. You will find yourself seriously in debt with no way of getting your money back from the third party that you sent it to.

      Read the fraud victims pages on this site.
