    Dear Charles,

    Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the Amazon's Independent Financial Agents team.

    This position will require you to open a Small Business Checking account with any bank, in order to do payment processing via wire transfers.

    We will assist you, or we will issue all the documents needed to open your Small Business Checking account [the Employer Identification Number (EIN) through IRS system and the complete Business Documents from Secretary of State office].

    You will be working as our Independent partner that processes contracts for part of Amazon's collaborators through your new Limited liability Company and your new Small Business Checking account.

    When you process a wire transfer, you will hold your share of 5% to 10% of any transaction before you forward the payment to the next merchant.

    The list of Benefits includes, but is not limited to 5% to 10% commission, out of each transaction / Complete Health Insurance / Take-home/Company car, available after the probation period.

    One of the benefits of being our Independent Financial Agent is being able to get a company car, though it is not mandatory, but is an option for those who think a car will be helpful. Each partner will become eligible for a company car after the first 2-3 months of proper work.

    Most of our partners are able to earn over $10,000 a month just by doing this method of processing payments with Amazon.

    The process of starting the partnership with us is the following: We will send you step-by-step instructions on how to issue yourself (for free) an Employer Identification Number (EIN) through the IRS system (or, you can send us your Social Security Number and we will issue the EIN in your behalf).

    We will work with the Secretary of State office and issue your Business Documents as well.

    Based on your EIN and Business Documents you will be able to open your Small Business Checking account with a bank.

    Once your Small Business Checking Account is ready, you can start processing payments by receiving your first wire transfers. You should cash out the funds received in your bank account, you will hold your 5% to 10% share, and then you will forward the rest of the funds based on our instructions. Once the process is complete, you are ready to process the next payment.

    If you are ready to accept this opportunity, you may sign the attached contract and send it back to us by replying to this e-mail, along with a copy of your ID.

    Please feel free to reply at any time with any question.

    Sincerely,

    Anne Turner

    HR MANAGER

    AMAZON HR RECRUITMENT CENTER

    This is so true. I really thought I had job with amazon. I have previously applied for a work at home position. And for that reason I thought I had no need to worry.

    I fell for this scam until they ask for my social security number on the phone then I knew. So trust it is a scam and don't waste your time.

      I got the same thing from them.

      They want your photo ID and your banking information.

      That should be a tip off right there.

      But they do well at making it look real.

    I received a phone call from a number in Washington State: 206-289-0979 the lady told me that they had reviewed my resume and I had been qualified to apply to the open positions. The human resources department would then email me the jobs available.

    Sure enough 30 minutes later I received an email from support@amz-recruiting-center.org, which had some attachments (scanned copies of a poorly constructed job description with 4 pages of job information). Please be aware of this scam. hope this helps
