Steinberg Investments Inc
Steinberg Investments have a highly paid part-time job waiting for you.
Steinberg Investments claims to be a well-known USA company offering financial services such as escrow services for buyers and sellers using online auctions.
Steinberg Investments is so well-known that when you do a search on the Internet, it comes up with plenty of listings – as a SCAM.
Steinberg Investments is offering to pay you 8% commission on money transfers out of your bank account. It is a part time/work from home position with flexible hours. All you need is Internet access. Steinberg will train you.
This is a typical money mule or money transfer scheme.
Anti-fraud experts say the money transferred is often stolen from other people’s bank accounts via the Internet. Scammers use Trojan and key logging viruses to capture customer online banking details. They need Australian bank accounts to launder the money through. Once you receive the money, you take your cut and pass the rest to a pre-arranged overseas destination.
There are laws against money laundering. There is a real possibility that you will be prosecuted. It is not worth the risk of prosecution and a criminal record.
The United Kingdom’s banking industry website www.banksafeonline.org.uk/spotting_scams.html has an up-to-date list of other money mule scams.
