[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Readers, perhaps you can tell me if
this is a _legitimate_ employment opportunity or just another scam
intended to get you to do a quick shuffle of money outbound before
the excrement hits the propeller blades?

In my limited examination of this company I note a few things:
(1) They are looking for licensees to help them in their
'shipping and freight forwarding' business.
(2) They seem quite eager to find people with a USA bank account; in
fact a question on their online employment application asks about
your USA bank routing number.
(3) Their 'home office' (of which they show lots of pictures of happy
industrious employees) is in St. Petersburg, _Russian Federation_. I
do not intend to besmirch their character and accuse them of being a
bunch of crooks, however I do recall reading somewhere of two Russian
'hackers' who were from St. Petersburg, Russia who the United States
FBI wanted very badly but could not get them extradited.

Anyway, I pass this along in the event any one or more of you feel
like applying for the job, and are quick witted enough to hang onto
your purse (and only provide accurate ABA routing numbers, etc) in the
event you absolutely must. Here is the message I got a few days ago,
and you can check out the corresponding web page. PAT]

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Now, it all appears to be an honest
company trying to get started with a worldwide presence. But something
leaves me feeling a bit queasy, even with those nice pictures on their
web site, and happy, smiling employees; the picture of their office
building, etc. What is going on? PAT]
