|Post subject:||ebay/part-time job scam|
Like most college graduates and hard working low income people, part-time jobs are essential to get through the month or week. http://www.itradingcompany.com(ITC) is a website offering part-time jobs for people as what they call correspondence managers(CM). They claims to be a New York based company originally from london. This company claims to sell goods of all kinds such jewelry, TV's, radio's, furniture, etc.... These jobs are offer at careerbuilder.com and jobcity.com. Once a person is hired he/she is responsible for cashing cashiers/or personal checks and send the money to other ITC representatives. These checks are cashed at check casheirs company's like PAYDAYLOANS, ACED CHECKS CASHED, where you may feel comfortable to do so since they verify that funds are available. ITC rep's are supposed to send items to people who paid for them but they don't. The catch is, all the items are on ebay and people buying these items are not aware they are speeking with an ITC rep. The ITC rep gives the correspondence manager's name and address to the ebay buyer and the CM(correspondence manager) has no idea this is going on. ITC does not send the bought item and they simply ignore emails of the buyer and scam them for they're money. The CM is then contacted by the buyer and is completely unaware that this is going on. When the ITC CM contacts ITC he/she is simply ignored and left to deal with the ebay buyer. If any of the checks cashed by the CM are blocked or bounced after money has been sent, ITC simply ignore the CM(corespondence manager) and makes them take the blame for the money.
I have been personallly victimized this company as a CM and no one seems to be able to do much about it. if any has any idea on what i should do get in contact with me. Any ebay customer who have been scamed like this please contact me. The FBI will no pay much attention to my case because the dollar amount is'nt worth their time. I want to stop these scammers. Their website is still up and running and unsuspecting corespondece managers and ebay buyers are being ripped off.

These people need to be brought to the attention of the FBI and the Secret Service. Do not go to your local offices call Washington DC and work your way down from there. STRESS if this happened to you it is happening to hundreds if not thousands more.

This is not an identify theft scam, but it might be a new twist in the fake cashier checks scam - do the checks you bank actually clear? - they don't appear in your account after 2-3 days, only to come back as fake/counterfeit a few weeks later? How did you get the money to ITC once you had cashed the checks - via Western Union or some other untraceable money transfer mechanism? That website you listed does not seem to be working at the moment.

All I can say is lets all report these AHOLES! ASSP
ITC - is a young and rapidly developing Company, founded in 1999. Initially ITC specialized in small import of goods to UK and a few other European countries. The main idea was buying goods abroad with their following resale. Successful transactions entailed broadening spheres of influence and consequent entering the international market.
Within a short period of time new international sources of good purchased/sold signed up with ITC. As early as in 2002 ITC imported/exported goods through out more than 15 countries worldwide. Nowadays our Company has around 30 representatives all over the world. Pace of development is rather dynamic; the number of offices tends to increase.
