Anyone heard of DS Trading company

I have received an email from the about an opportunity but know nothing about them.

There is no upfront payment and some of the info they have given me checks out but it seems like a good opportunity which has aroused my suspicion!

Thanks Jennie

    you will be "handling Payments" , which means the police will come knocking on your door for the dodgy deals

    Please, Please, Please, anyone who receives a job offer from DS Trading company in USA, do not reploy and contact Trading Standards with the details. I too was offered a job by these people having searced for ages for a genuine work from home opportunity. They post ads on the big job boards and even purchase CV search access too and get your contact details from there.
    They are a genuine Money Laundering Scam, they paid funds into my bank account from an account of a woman who's bank details they had stolen. If you receive these funds and then do as they say and transfer them to their "clients" (less your 10% cut - salary) via western union you are liable to be arrested. If you have resopnded and given them your bank details, contact your bank immediately as stolen funds to your account will be imminent and if you contact your bank first you will be signalling you are not involved in their huge scam ring.

    Please be warned people. If you check Western Union's website it also has an alert on there about the scam

    http://www.westernunion.co.uk/web-inf/pdf/EasyMoney.pdf

    and if you google money laundering scam or money transfer scam (and/or) Job you will see just how concerning it is.


    and also

    Yep - I just got scammed by DS. Now Barclays has closed my a/c - even though I didn't transfer any cash to anywhere. They paid money (DS) in, and it was immediatly taken back out by USA bank of origin. Can't contact Barclays till Monday. Misery.



    Be careful, these people don't care who they involve.

  • DS Trading is utterly scandalous and totally illegal.

    It manifests itself in a genial 'job offer', and subsequent correspondence with them is highly professional and they offer you an Employment contract (including USA head office address), who their client types are, what your many and varied duties will be, and even offer an FAQ page. Their trade is in 'internet auctions' such as e-bay etc.

    Upon job acceptance, unbeknown to you, money is stolen from UK bank accounts and transferred to yours. You keep 10% 'fee' and transfer the rest to your 'customer' via Western Union. The bank details I offered were those of a bank book with a balance of 46p, and money can only be drawn from it if it's there, and you present the book, and funds must be cleared in order to obtain them.

    I made 'trades'. I even called the police and although they were adamant about ensuring that I ensure the funds had cleared the account lest I get scammed, when you have just withdrawn £1,200, they clearly have. I wanted to appear transparent, and was informed I was doing nothing illegal.

    3 weeks later, Halifax froze all my bank accounts and have requested I pay it all back, though this was via verbal telephone conversation with Retail Fraud and not as yet confirmed by letter. I have compiled a complete police dossier with transaction details (at least to prove I didn't nick it and have no connection with these !!!!!!!s), and also the complete e-mail communication thread with these vermin from the start as now, I'm the victim and certainly not a perpetrator. When I receive the letter, I will go to the police. It's that serious.

    I too was scammed...BE VERY WARNED!!

    These people are unscrupulous vermin, though you have to question the Banks' incredibly vulnerable security systems as well...
