I just went through an "online interview" with a personnel member at ARTEL Home Inc. He asked some weird questions, like

Artel Home Inc. (7/22/2009 8:23:59 AM): What do you understand by the term Petty Cash?

and

Artel Home Inc. (7/22/2009 8:34:13 AM): Do you have a bank account in the USA, we ask this question to be absolutely sure that all our employees are strictly from the states. If yes what's the name of the institution?

Kind of weird for a position that supposedly has no contact except online chats.

Then he told me I got the position, but I needed to pass a 10 day probation and a "Test of Trust". This involved receiving funds to purchase accounting software and sending the remainder of the funds to the company's "shipping agent" via Western Union.

I found ARTEL Inc online, but I cannot find "ARTEL Home Inc".

Am I right in thinking scam? If so, where would I report this?
