Vistar Group Inc scam. This is just the latest of the numerous highly generic Easter European 'Group Inc.' scam websites that has been set up to form a front for a money laundering fraud job spamming campaign. 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., Flar Group Inc., Ward Group Inc., Highway Group Inc., Wescom Group Inc., Spread Group Inc, United Group Inc., Entrust Group Inc, Puritan Group Inc, Vision Group Inc, Nvidia Group Inc, Alt Group Inc, MAC Group Inc, Dream Group Inc., ITS Group Inc Pacific Group Inc, Aurora Group Inc, Render Group Inc, Citizen Group Inc, SPACE Group Inc, Golden Gate Inc, Celerity Group Inc, Synapse Group Inc, Optimus Group Inc and Fincore Group Inc fraudsters among many others - clear evidence of a serial scammer. Numerous other aliases can be found by this search or this search of my site for "Group Inc". The website carries a clear money mule solicitation, (which is the sole reason for the site), their multiple domains were only registered very recently, they are not a registered company, their fake management team is the same as previous aliases and all their contact and location details are bogus.

Vistar Group Inc : Evidence of Criminal Fraud

i) Vistar Group Inc make absolutely no claims whatsoever about when they were founded or how long they have been in operation, (although you will notice that the fake 'Alan Garner' below "has been working for the company since 2001"), but their domain vistar-groupinc.tw was only registered with IP Mirror Pte Ltd on 11-Feb-2010 for the usual 'criminal's domain' minimum period of only one year. A clear indication of a fraud domain. [See table below for further fraud domains, all registered recently for one year only].

ii) They claim to be located in New York, but a webcheck shows that this particular Vistar Group Inc at the registered address are not registered in the NY state business register. Check for yourself.

iii) The usual suspects...this fake 'Management Team' with stock photos and differing names has been a feature of a large number of their previous scams (Google search for "creator of unique financial flows management schemes repeatedly awarded" from the text below to see a few. Irrefutable evidence of a serial criminal fraudster.

Management Team

Michael Nicholson' in the identical Fincore Group Inc Inc scam and various other names in the other listed scams)

iv) A Google search shows no genuine internet presence at all for this particular "Vistar Group Inc", apart from their own multiple fraud sites that pop up, of course. Not to be confused with any other genuine companies of the same name.

v) Another crystal clear Russian/Ukrainian fraud and yet another set of fake Location Details (copied from their website)

(Bear in mind that these crooks are not a legally registered business entity in New York state at the address below so their location and contact details are not going to be genuine)

Main Address:
Office Suites
1 Mt Hope Ave
Rochester, NY 14620
USA

Tel: 1-585-431-1088
Fax: 1-585-351-2413

• - A Google Search for the address "1 Mt Hope Ave Rochester, NY" returns zero results for these crooks, (ignoring the crooks own fake websites, of course). It also shows the address was last used for the IGT Group Inc. scam.
• - A Google Maps business search at the street address "1 Mt Hope Ave Rochester, NY" shows no such business listed at that address - only Gamblers Anonymous.
• - There are no Google hits for the above telephone number "1-585-431-1088", (ignoring the crooks own fake websites, of course).
• - There are no Google hits for the above Fax. number "1-585-351-2413", (ignoring the crooks own fake websites, of course).
All clear evidence of the usual fake details for this serial fraudster.

vi) Here is the obvious money laundering position of "Payment Processing Assistant" posted on their website:

When funds enter employee's bank account, Payment Processing Agents 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.

SALARY
During the probationary period we offer USD 2,300 monthly salary plus 8% commission for each payment processing operation. For example, an average $5,000 payment will entail $400 commission (but WU/MG fee is paid from this money, please see below for more details). Furthermore, we offer $50 bonus for each transaction completed by 11 a.m. (local time). With the current number of clients, on average, your overall income will amount to up to USD 4,000 per month. A successful agent may ask for additional tasks and earn more. After the probationary period, base salary goes up to USD 3,000 per month plus 8% commission. Base salary ($2,300) will be transferred at the end of the month to employee's bank account via Direct Deposit. Commission (8%) is to be deducted from the processed money at the time of the transfer.

IMPORTANT DETAILS

    * Payment Processing Agents is supposed to process received assets during one business day, i.e. from the moment of money entering their 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.
    * Payment Processing Agents 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.
    * Since business transfers can be processed with delays, Payment Processing Agents should specify each transfer as a private transaction. This provision is also applicable in case of a third party interest in the transfer.
    * Our clients appreciate our operational efficiency and are ready to pay extra fee for shorter transaction terms. If we manage to deliver goods to buyer within 5 days, the deal is considered to be fulfilled at the earliest possible date.
    * All the fees (WU/MG) are paid from employee's commission. HOWEVER, our company undertakes to reimburse part of expenses which are incurred in connection with money transfer (WIRE or by Western Union/Money gram system) should money transfer charges exceed 3%. All in all, your net profit will amount to 5-8% of the total amount of each payment processing operation.
    * We don't ask for any investment to start cooperating with our company.
    * The company offers incentive bonus program based on work results with regard to several factors, i.e. total sum of money transferred, payment processing time, etc.

Probationary period imposes restrictions on the employment benefits of our corporation. Payment Processing Agents will be able to receive Vistar Group Inc. employment benefits only after probationary period completion. Employment benefits will include:

    * stock options
    * health & dental insurance
    * flex-time
    * free training and professional development programs
    * 401k

*Detailed information concerning the employment benefits will be provided after probationary period successful completion.


It's the usual identical job as posted by all of these fraudsters It's a crystal clear ILLEGAL money laundering mule position that will get your bank account and your assets frozen, lose you a lot of money and could earn you a criminal record. Clear evidence of criminal fraud. The "trial period" is all there is - THERE IS NO JOB. It consists of doing 'test transactions' of stolen funds to your bank account and transferring a balance back to these crooks in the Ukraine. It doesn't last a month before the first transfer comes back as fraudulent and the whole house of cards collapses, you've lost all of the money you've transferred, the bank has closed your account(s) and frozen all your assets and the police would like a word with you. DO NOT BE TEMPTED.

vii) No legitimate company is going to spamvertise among the untrained, inexperienced and uncertified general population for a "Payment Processing Assistant" acting as a criminal money transfer agent. It clearly defines the fake Vistar Group Inc as a criminal fraud organisation.

viii) The identical illegal job was posted by all the
fraudsters other aliases as listed above.

The above evidence clearly demonstrates beyond any doubt that the Vistar Group Inc website has been set up by money laundering criminal fraudsters purely for the purpose of spamvertising an illegal money laundering 'mule' job. If you are an abuse team that has received an abuse report regarding these fraudsters, please consider immediate termination of their services in view of the absolutely undeniable evidence of criminal fraud - please don't delay - these criminals will not respond to any communication from you, (all their whois data is false), but will simply take advantage of any attempt at communication as a delaying tactic to allow them time to carry on their criminal activity and prepare their next network.
