Are you seriously asking how you know it is fraud????? When you recieve a message requesting the use of your credit card and or bank account information, it typically, in almost all instances, is set up for identity theft and merely a ploy to rob you blind. Never ever ever accept a job offer like this. Warning sign number 1, the website is under contruction, #2 logic, what company in canada would request you to launder money through your private account and then send it to the UK. IF you fall for this you probably deserve the lesson.

I also recieved this message, shockingly this idiot believes he will pull the wool over the eyes of many, Im sure. Just use your head!
