This people find your resume in Workopolis or other job search websites, then they contact you via email or phone and propose that you collect for them using your bank account and keep 1 % of the collection and wire the difference to them overseas. They also ask you to sign a contract withthem, in wich they worded in a way they make you look like the employer not the employee offering them a base salary of $2000.oo per month. Funny when they call base salary when it refers for you to pay them, when it come for them to pay you they just say that they will pay for you. (what? ).
Be careful don't fall for it. I think that the job search engines should look closer at who is posting job opportunities out there.

I am attaching the part of the contract that makes you looks like the employer and liable. The rest of it looks like a normal contract.
