Complaint / review text:
Almost got cheated a year ago with Fravans company. They're back except under the name Altiplano LLC. Address is the same as Fravans. A little more clever this time since there is a real France-based company named Altiplano. Check out the Fravans reports for further info.
Here is what I was e-mailed with this time:
Dear Sir or Madam,
Information about part-time job
We are Company in Europe specialized in B2B Internet Resources. Some of our clients established business in USA not so long ago and they are in need of our services not only in Europe, but in United States also. We do the debt seeking procedures from our European office and you will be dealing only with already arrangement payments. Most of companies prefer to cover debts by local checks, but we are unable to collect on the checks in timely manner, as the checks take
up to 2 months to clear. This delay is caused by lengthily clearing process of U.S. Checks through French banks.
Our business requires fast cashflow, and therefore we are seeking a representative that can process local U.S. Checks for our company. It is easier for us to pay commission to our representative in US and have the money the next day than wait for 2 months.
You will have to receive the payment from our creditor, deposit it into your account and once cleared, forward the amount of payment, less your commission and other transfer expenses, to us. You will forward the money by Western Union, which is the fastest way to send money
worldwide, to one of our branches in Europe. We have branches in almost all European countries.
We expect 3-4 payments a month to be forwarded through the representative, totaling no more then $5,000.00 each.
All applicants must pass a background check, must have a bank checking account in good standing. Also, successful applicants must sign a Representative Service Contract with us.
The representative, pursuant to the contract, will not be liable for any taxes in the United States. You will be transferring the money received from our creditors out of the country and therefore will not be liable for capital gains taxes. You will only be liable for your normal income tax on the commission received. Further in his employment with our company, the representative can take on other responsibilities and will be considered to be hired as a permanent representative of our company in the United States.
Our beginning wage will depend on a number of transactions that the representative will assist us in. The fee paid per transaction is US $600, plus all if any fees encountered during the transaction. The fee is fixed at US $600, and does not depend on the size of
the transaction. We expect a minimum of 3 transactions a month. At first would like to limit it to one transaction. When we see that everything is going fine, we will increase the number of transactions and start normal work. There is no regular wage, the wage depends on the number of transactions executed. The number of transactions depends on how fast and accurate you will
perform. We expect high level of communication, fast feedback and accurate situation reporting.
There are no investments required from you. If in the process of work you will encounter any additional expenses, they will be covered by us from the checks that you will receive from our creditors.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, FEEL FREE TO ASK THROUGH

1. Print, fill in and sign the attached contract.
2. Fax it to our USA Fax number (877) 263-1404 toll free in US, please include any type of ID that has your photo and name. It could be your driver's license, passport or any other ID. If you don't have them right now, we can do the background check also by having photocopy of
your SSN card. If you don't have anything of these items on hands right now (forexample lost or waiting for replacement), then your latest phone bill is also ok, but it must include your name and address.
