Junior Group Inc. scam. This is just one of the latest of the numerous highly generic Russian scam websites that has been set up to form a front for a money laundering fraud job advertisement. It's a bit slicker than most but at the end of the day its function is to con you into believing that they are a legitimate company when the evidence clearly demonstrates that they are crooks. It's an identical scam to Epayment Solutions, Emarket Solutions Inc., Legal Operations Inc., Secure Operations Inc., Oranta Group Inc., Ketler Group Inc., Profit Financing Inc.Logic Group Inc.Maxi Group Inc., Fair GroupFartex Group, MGPA Group Inc., Sky Group Inc., Idea Group Inc.Air Group Inc., Ideal Group Inc., Capital Group Inc.Fox Group Inc., Ebusiness Group Inc., Onicks Group Inc., Multi Group Inc., Single Group, DDK Group Inc., EFS Capital Group Inc., Eagle Group Inc. FCB Group Inc.TDK Group Inc.Ecos Group Inc., BBM Group Inc.Veston Group Inc., BCG Group Inc., Dream Group Inc.Flar Group Inc. and the Ward Group Inc. fraudsters among many others. They have yet another new template for the same old scam content as they do from time to time - their previous identical alias was Hub Group Inc.. The website carries a clear money mule solicitation, their multiple domains were only registered very recently, they are not a registered company and all their contact and location details are bogus.

This fraudster should not be confused with any legitimate company of the same or similar name - the above website graphics and the included money laundering job clearly identify the fake website and these fraudsters.

Junior Group Inc. : Evidence of Criminal Fraud

i) Junior Group Inc. claim on their website "The company was set up in 1990 in New York, the USA by three enthusiasts who have financial education", but the criminal's domain junior-group.cn was only registered with 广东时代互联科技有限公司 (Time Internet Technology Co., Ltd. Guangdong/now.cn) on 06-May-2009 for a period of only one year. A clear indication of a fraudulent registration.

ii) A webcheck shows that Junior Group Inc. are not registered in the NY state business register, clear evidence of a fake company. Check for yourself.

iii) Our Partners: They used a fake Serfreport webpage to display a fake news item also to lend legitimacy to their company.The fake webpage is just a page on the criminal's own server.

iv) Our Partners: They use a fake News.de webpage to display a fake news item also to lend legitimacy to their company.The fake webpage is just a page on the criminal's own server.

v) Our Partners: They used a fake Yahoo finance webpage to lend legitimacy to their company by showing a bogus stock figure for the equally bogus Junior Group Inc. The fake webpage is just a page on the criminal's own server.

vi) Our Partners: They used a fake Businesswire webpage to display a fake news item also to lend legitimacy to their company. The fake webpage is just a page on the criminal's own server.

vii)  Our Partners: They use a fake Stockhouse webpage to display a fake news item also to lend legitimacy to their company.The fake webpage is just a page on the criminal's own server.

viii) A Google search shows no internet presence at all for this particular Junior Group Inc., apart from any of their own multiple fraud sites, of course. Not to be confused with any other company of the same name.

ix) This scam has identical content to the numerous scams listed above - this is a serial fraudster.

x) Another identical Russian fraud and yet another set of fake Location Details (copied from their website)

Main Address:
Metro Office Center
140 Metro Park, 3rd Floor
Rochester, NY 14623
USA

Tel: +1 5856431122
Fax: +1 5852195858

Bear in mind that this fake company is not registered in NY state as evidenced above, so the location details are guaranteed to be bogus....

• - A Google Search for the address "Metro Office Center 140 Metro Park, 3rd Floor Rochester, NY" returns no hits.
• - A Google Maps Business Search for the address "140 Metro Park, Rochester, NY" shows that Junior Group Inc. are not listed at that address.
• - There are no Google hits for the above telephone number "+1 2138142983", (apart from the criminal's own fraud site, of course).
• - There are no Google hits for the above Fax. number "+1 2133412303", (apart from the criminal's own fraud site, of course).
• - Although the telephone number +1 5856431122 does locate to Rochester, NY, the Fax. number +1 5852195858 locates to Batavia NY - they must have a big office.

All evidence of fake details.

When funds enter employee's bank account, Financial Agent's duty is to withdraw cash and transfer the funds via International Wire Transfer or Western Union/Money Gram money transfer systems. The main advantage of our services is the shortest possible time within which the seller can receive money for the services/goods sold. If this operation is delayed, our clients are entitled to cancel their contract with us and we suffer financial loss. Therefore, successful applicant must be very responsible and careful!

TRIAL PERIOD POLICY

Successful applicants are offered the position on a probationary period basis (1 month). This is the period when a new employee will be trained and receive online support while working and being paid. A personal supervisor can recommend termination during/after the trial period depending on agent's activity. New employee should be responsible and strictly follow supervisor's recommendations to pass the Probationary Period successfully and be employed by us on a regular basis.

IMPORTANT DETAILS

    * Financial Agent is supposed to process received assets during one business day, i.e. from the moment of money entering his bank account to the moment of re-send to our client in accordance with contract terms. If money enters employee's account on a day-off or holiday, all payment processing procedures have to be completed during the next working day.
    * Financial Agent receives invoices for each transaction every 14 days. This document is a confirmation of transaction validity, and in case of any (if any at all) unforeseen circumstances it will evidence your personal non-participation. All invoices will contain detailed information on money sender and will be both sealed and certified with President's signature.
      *After the Probationary Period completion, invoices will be sent every business day.
