Hi all,

I've been offered a job in which I will be a third party selling goods. I will be an employee for a company placing items onto ebay under my own account. Will be paid weekly from them. Money from purchased items will go into my PayPal account and then I would withdraw and pass the cash to employer. Item would then be sent to someone else.

Sounds to good too be true, doesn't it.

Sounds like money laundering. Run for the hills!

Yes. It is a scam. The above poster is right. There was a recent thread about this.
I can't remember all the suggestions on the last thread. But I think the goods are not sent and the buyer is refunded thru PayPal and you lose money.
