fraudster bears no
relation to any other company of the same or similar name and
should not be
confused. The above website graphics and the money laundering job below
are intended to identify this fraudster alone.
a fairly obvious money laundering mule fraud website that is related to
many others documented on this website and is the identical follow on fraud to Anthem Premium Finance with just a simple name and logo change. It is a more or
less identical fraud to SmartOne Inc. that was going around earlier
in the year which then links it to the De
Cart Ltd fraud, the Renaissance
Capital Advisors Ltd scam, the Trust Company Inc, Finance
International, E-Z Transfer, SurRate Inc, Des
Group Inc., Business & Professional Consultants
scams and no doubt many others, in other words it's a standard
run-of-the mill money transfer fraud of the type that are turned out by
the dozen by the same bunch of criminals using the same hosts and
registrars that they regularly use. They're still using the old
miss-spelt flash banner they used for SmartOne Inc.
which originated from one of their previous aliases
Ketler Secure Financing which is a
bit of a give-away. Their initial domain a-p-finance.com was only registered
their location details are fake, they are not a US registered company
and this particular company has no internet presence, (not to be
confused with any genuine company of the same name). Clearly fraudulent.
AP Finance :
of Criminal Fraud
i) AP Finance say on
their 'About Us' page "What it's grown into Robert
STAMP, an American businessman and the owner of a big network of
Internet shops was at the presentation of the report. He was the first
to appraise the perspectives of application of finance management
external structure. The same day Mr. Miller and STAMP made a verbal
agreement on practical implementation of the idea by Mr.STAMP which in
the future has grown into official partners' relations.
with the help of a team of IT experts Mr. STAMP managed to develop a
system, based on Mr. Miller's theory. The system allowed separating the
financial management from business operations of a particular company.
A lot of companies highly appreciated the benefits of AP Finance system
and it became popular extremely fast". It's certainly ungrammatical nonsense and it may have been "extremely fast" but four days? (the
criminal's domain a-p-finance.com
on 08-dec-2008. I think not - a clear indication of fraud.
ii)a Google search for "AP Finance"
(include quotes), shows no web presence at all for these
crooks, (not to be confused with any
genuine company of the same name).
iv) It's a more or
less identical scam to SmartOne Inc.
- notice the miss-spelt "Immediate deals with maximum
convinience" in the above flash banner. v)
The AP Finance website's real function is to
spamvertise an illegal
mule position accepting fraudulent funds into your account
transferring them back out to the criminals via Western Union or
Moneygram for a percentage cut.

We are glad that you showed an interest in an opening in our company. My name is Tracy Miles, and I am the HR Manager of AP Finance. I would like to say a few words about our company and its area of activity.
We deal with: - preparation and conducting of deals between parties and partners; - control over financial operations; - preparation of large loans; - acting as underwriter for many financial operations; - stock trades and market analysis.
We have many regular large customers, who appreciate our services. As opposed to banks, we provide a much broader range of ser vices necessary for our business clients. Our specifically designed, high-quality trade management software, Trade Performance 3.1, makes the work much easier and you may deal with business without leaving your home or office!
AP Finance believes that high quality software-based trade management and execution tools can help individual and institutional traders achieve superior trading results. Our business is to develop and deploy these trading tools and to use them to forge partnerships with money managers, trading firms and traders.
For years, AP Finance has worked at the forefront of trading technology to create trading solutions of value. Now AP Finance has added its Director of US Trading Operations to take advantage of its business potential. With key individuals on board, AP Finance is poised to develop new partners and markets.
In order to optimise expenses, since 2006 we employ any residents of USA, while only those who pass the interview and verification may become a part of our company, while residing in any of the towns of our country. This work does not require starting expenses, but you should successfully pass the training and probation period.
I would now like to say a few words about the vacancy, which we are glad to propose to you. Our company invites for cooperation those who have their own business name or business account of any type (business checking, business savings ... etc.). During the first month you work using only your own account, but after the probation period the company will provide you with your own trading account which you can use to perform stock transactions 24 hours a day! However, for the probation time you can even use a regular personal checking account, which can be opened in one of the US major banks.
If you don't have your own business account, then we will be glad to help you to register it!! You may combine work in our company with another job. You should be extremely conscientious and disciplined while performing your employment duties. You should check your e-mail 6 times a day and be ready to receive calls from our manager.
The main thing for us is your desire to become a co-worker. We foresee a broad system of bonuses and rewards for our employees.
You can read report about our company at the Better Business Bureau: http://www.labbb.org/BBBWEB/Forms/Business/CompanyReportPage_Expository.aspx?Com panyID=29004432

I hope that you will make the right decision and become a part of our company.
Yours sincerely, Tracy Miles AP Finance www.a-p-finance.com The above

fraudsters purely for
purpose of spamvertising illegal jobs. If you
