Amazon Financial Agent Recruiter Scam Created by Scammers

I've been contacted by a "recruiter" for Amazon saying that they want to hire me as a Financial Agent. They are offering $5,800 salary plus a 5% commission. The link they sent me via text message takes me to an info screen displaying the same exact information you already have posted about this position. I wanted to share this website that they sent me in an email containing attachments of employment paperwork.

The website URL is:

  • hxxp://

This webpage almost looks legitimate but there are small indicators of its fraudulent nature. The Amazon logo is slightly blurry and there are grammatical errors throughout the text. I want to make sure that nobody gets bamboozled into filling out the employment paperwork, which could totally lead to identity theft or even worse. Thanks for your help keeping citizens informed of these types of scams.

    I thought this job posted was legit so I went ahead and applied and they started sending me wire transfers and had me send them out in cash; come to find out it was fraud and my bank has now Frozen my account so don't fall for it.

      I am trying to see if the police can help me catch them, they got me at the right time because I had just signed up for the Amazon text service for when jobs are available.
