Advantage Company
(also Known As Company) In The UK Fraud employment, money scam

There is a company in London that calls itself Advantage Company, or 'Company' as seen on the site. It is an online job whereas one can either be Customer Service Specialist, or a financial adviser. Advantage company found my resume at, and according to the email I received, the company pays 27 USD per hour. I received the employment forms via email. However, when I browsed the site, I simply wasn't sure on what the job truly is.
So I received an email with my first assignment, and the assignment was a very awkward request. Here is what it said:

"I am glad to report you that you have the first payment on your account.You will receive it in 1-5 business days.Let me know as soon as you receive it.

IMPORTANT! It's your trial transfer, after it we'll decide if you suit us as our worker. Remember! The investment world depends on time very much, so all operations must be completed within 1-2 hours.


1) Go to your bank and take $1, 100.00 by cash

3)This sum you must transfer by Western Union
(pay Western Union fees from this sum).

IMPORTANT:Don't use on-line Money Gram and Western Union! There are
lots of frauds on Internet, we hold dear our reputation. It
is strictly recommended to make all transfers from actual Money Gram
and Western Union
offices ONLY and not via on-line system. Please
specify the purpose of transfer asg "family" to eliminate any
possible delays due to Money Gram and Western Union policy regarding
business transfers.

The sum is $1100.00 (pay Western Union fees from this sum)

First Name:
Last Name:

We need the following details concerning the money transferring:

1) Receiver's Name: (First Name / Last Name)

5) Your Country, City of sending:

Check the transfer details before sending!

The person whom do you send the transfer is our representative in that
country (in our case that Third World country).
All transfers should be sent in "money in minutes" option.
The hourly payment is paid approximately once a week.
You have to count hours spent performing transfers and tasks only.
There are very few working hours until the trial transfer is accomplished.
You have to count working hours since the first transfer is on your account.

IMPORTANT: As soon as the transfers are made call Money Gram/Western Union and ask if they are available to pick up. And let me know if you got this e-mail.

Please note: We use the VoiP telephony to communicate with you; therefore the CallerID could be incorrect or missing. Please do not miss our calls.

Best regards, "

What kind of job asks a person to take THAT much money from his account? What type of job asks for your money in the first place? This is more than enough evidence to rule out that this "Advantage Company" is an employment scam.
