Please tell me if this company is a FRAUD, and if so, how do I report them?
After I posted a resume on a major job site, this company sent me an email offering me a job.
The company is called OPM Group, Inc, and if you read their About The Company page, there is broken English and everything!
On this page they claim to be a member of NASDAQ. How can I find out if they really are?
Here is the "job" they offered me, it is a Financial Manager. They need access to my bank account!!!
This must be a scam, right??
Do you know for sure??
If it is a scam, how to I report it? Can you?? If this is a scam, it sure is elaborate and involved!!!

Of course it is a scam.
Look at these ridicules FAKE certificates. Please.
Company states involved in offering brokerage services, etc.
Under OPM group, they are not a US registered broker dealer.
FINRA 1-(800) 289-9999.
I find nowhere that this company is NASD/ NASDAQ registered or listed.
These people have no real formal education (edu schools not listed), founder states has some "legal education" but stop saying he is an attorney so that means he is not.
Investigate if Licensed to Practice Law or Complain:
Complaint to FTC for adverting, misrepresentation, fraud, or loss:
After further investigation, I would say this is clearly FRAUD:
Company seeks people to effectively launder money via Western Union or other wire services.
DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFO.
If you participate in there scheme you could be arrested and charged for including but not limited to:
1. Money laundering or Conspiracy to Commit Money laundering.
2. Accessory after the fact.
"Whoever, knowing that an offense has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact; one who knowing a felony to have been committed by another, receives, relieves, comforts, or assists the felon in order to hinder the felon's apprehension, trial, or punishment. U.S.C. 18."
FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)
File Complaint here:
They state they have been registered as "OPM Group Inc" in NY since 1990.
State records show that there is no such company registered in NY called, "OPM Group Inc."
The closest that meets that year is "OPM Group LTD."
Report to NY State Attorney General
Report to NY Secretary of State
Next, they use an "anti- document capture" on their website so people can't right click and copy and report it to the FEDS.
Fortunately, I have an education beyond 3rd grade; here is the solution around their web block:
1. While on any of their web pages, go to the top of your browser and click "View" then "page source" or "source code."
2. Scroll down to copy whatever scam crap they are dishing out and paste it to the FED's complaint form. Then provide link when reporting.
Now let me rag on them some more:
Corporate management, business activity and financial situation study, evolving proactive strategies of corporate management standards increase, transparency of business and finding other ways of business attractiveness and capital procurement; Our task is to translate the results of business evaluation into a profitable reality through providing recommendations on investment projects finance and possible business restructuring; Development and implementation of activities to ensure business attractiveness for further investments; Development of investments memos, business plans, holding presentations for business investors; Development of all accompanying documents and implementation of all legal procedures incurred."
WTF is that all about?
What kind of BS language is that?
Let me know when they are all in jail with Bernie.Source(s): --- Finance & Risk Management Consultant --- Fmr Compliance Officer --- Experienced and Trained in ID'ing financial fraud (see bio for more. add me to view post history)

No one is going to offer you a job not talking to you or seeing you in person. This is obviously a scam. These scams are actually very popular and I found that they found their way on monster.com and careerbuilder.com as well. What they do is send you a job posting with no particular company attached. Then you click on a link and it asks you to provide some personal information or fill out resume on their so called database. Then you'll never hear from them and they'll use your information for whatever reasons. So, always do your research on the company. There is no reason why a company name should be a secret. In your case, it is 100% a scam.

There is nothing on this website that gives me the feeling they could be legit. There are too many weird statements. Is this a Scam... YES... do I know for sure (not 100%... but if I had to bet my life on it... I'd say yes this is a scam.
Here's one major clue, a web search on OMP Group reveals 2 findings.
If they were as big as they imply, with offices in & outside of NYC.... there would be pages of web info.
Move on to something else. The only reason you're not 100% sure this is a scam..... you simply wish it was true!

ANY time someone asks for your bank account number online it is a scam. If you don't feel 100% sure its not a scam, there's a good chance it is. Simple as that.

Of course its a fraud if their "job offer" includes a request for your personal bank accounts. Probably operated out of Nigeria or someplace.
