If you signed-up with a job seeker websites and had an email sent to you by Lisa Phillips, and were given job offer to become a Financial Support Agent, using your bank account to wire funds via Western Union or MoneyGram, then don't send any personal information or banking details to Management Solution Limited because you will be liable in a fraudulent counterfeit money mule scam and could get in serious trouble with bank and the law.

Home Based Job Scam

"Home based job is the new direction the world is heading. Before I get into too deep, I wanted to elucidate one thing. I am sure you will agree with me, how good a train will run will depend on the engine. And in the home based job, the one man band, the engine is you. We acquired your resume at totaljobs.com.

Wistron Corp Scam Attempt

They utilized my school email address; and wanted to communicate via Yahoo IM. I responded and explained that I don't use Yahoo IM because my computer was hacked answering one; and gave my ph#. I did notice the misspelling in the email sent, but responded anyway. Shortly after; I received a text msg from someone claiming to be Mrs. Kelly Bean. However, it raised a serious red-flag. The person wanted to talk SMS; when I asked if there was way to chat live. After that...I simply texted that I was not interested. I wish I had found this site before even responding to the email. I only searched for Wistron Corp; because I was suspicious. I did another search after the text msg and added Wistron scam and then SMS Wistron scam. The ph# they used is (218) 296-4419 and email: Sharon Powell
