Agreement, the Company hereby engages the Contractor as an independent
contractor to perform the services set forth herein for the period of 5
weeks starting the above date, and the Contractor hereby accepts such

2. Expenses. During the term of this Agreement, the Contractor shall
bill and the Company shall reimburse him for all reasonable and approved
out-of-pocket expenses which are incurred in connection with the
performance of the duties hereunder. For the period of the training the
Company will reimburse the Contractor time by a min $1,500 or max $3,000
compensation in a form of a paycheck sent at the time when the final
test is taken. Reimburse is not sent if the Contractor didn't complete
at least 4 weeks of studies. In case of any actions performed by the
Contractor, related to the work process and the needs of the Company for
the period of the training the Company will pay the Contractor the
commission in amount defined by agreement.

3. Written Reports. The Company may request that project plans, progress
reports and a final results report be provided by Contractor on a
monthly basis. A final results report shall be due at the conclusion of
the project and shall be submitted to the Company in a confidential
written report at such time. The results report shall be in such form
and setting forth such information and data as is reasonably requested
by the Company.

4. Confidentiality. The Contractor acknowledges that during the
engagement he will have access to and become acquainted with various
trade secrets, inventions, innovations, processes, information, records
and specifications owned or licensed by the Company and/or used by the
Company in connection with the operation of its business including,
without limitation, the Company's business and product processes,
methods, customer lists, accounts and procedures. The Contractor agrees
that he will not disclose any of the aforesaid, directly or indirectly,
or use any of them in any manner, either during the term of this
Agreement or at any time thereafter, except as required in the course of
this engagement with the Company. All files, records, documents,
blueprints, specifications, information, letters, notes, media lists,
original artwork/creative, notebooks, and similar items relating to the
business of the Company, whether prepared by the Contractor or otherwise
coming into his possession, shall remain the exclusive property of the
Company. The Contractor shall not retain any copies of the foregoing
without the Company's prior written permission. Upon the expiration or
earlier termination of this Agreement, or whenever requested by the
Company, the Contractor shall immediately deliver to the Company all
such files, records, documents, specifications, information, and other
items in his possession or under his control. The Contractor further
agrees that he will not disclose his retention as an independent
contractor or the terms of this Agreement to any person without the
prior written consent of the Company and shall at all times preserve the
confidential nature of his relationship to the Company and of the
services hereunder.

5. Conflicts of Interest; Non-hire Provision. The Contractor represents
that he is free to enter into this Agreement, and that this engagement
does not violate the terms of any agreement between the Contractor and
any third party. Further, the Contractor, in rendering his duties shall
not utilize any invention, discovery, development, improvement,
innovation, or trade secret in which he does not have a proprietary
interest. During the term of this agreement, the Contractor shall devote
as much of his productive time, energy and abilities to the performance
of his duties hereunder as is necessary to perform the required duties
in a timely and productive manner. The Contractor is expressly free to
perform services for other parties while performing services for the
Company. For a period of six months following any termination, the

6. Right to Injunction. The parties hereto acknowledge that the services
to be rendered by the Contractor under this Agreement and the rights and
privileges granted to the Company under the Agreement are of a special,
unique, unusual, and extraordinary character which gives them a peculiar
value, the loss of which cannot be reasonably or adequately compensated
by damages in any action at law, and the breach by the Contractor of any
of the provisions of this Agreement will cause the Company irreparable
injury and damage. The Contractor expressly agrees that the Company
shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief in the event
of, or to prevent, a breach of any provision of this Agreement by the
Contractor. Resort to such equitable relief, however, shall not be
construed to be a waiver of any other rights or remedies that the

remedies of the Company under this Agreement or otherwise shall be
construed to be cumulative, and no one of the them shall be exclusive of
any other or of any right or remedy allowed by law.

  1. How do you know this is a scam? Can you elaborate? A lot of buisnesses have job applications that look like this.

  2. Well, do your research on the "buisness", its website, records, and contacts.... Also see
    for the story of what has happened to others in my situation, then follow your own instincts....

    Also, you may google " Purchase Agent Fraud"....

    Best of Luck to you

  3. do your research, see their bogus "now-down-for-repair" website, and also see

    but, Best of Luck to you, if you apply to this "buisness" and get taken!

  4. This is a very common internet scam that did arise from the Nigerian 419 scams. I would advise that anyone victimized by people like this, report it to the ic3 (The FBI), and contact your bank immediately. I knew of someone who was unknowigly involved in a scam where the company was sending her packages to send to others. She had no idea it was illegal until the FBI showed up at her door. Be smart and be safe. Nobody wants a surprise like that.

    In this case, the con artist would send its target a money order or cashiers check with a request that you deposit it and send back a portion of the funds to them. They may also request that you use the money to make some sort of purchase for them. Victims only after sending the money or items, discover that the checks they were asked to cash are fraudulent.

  5. Not only can any checks (implying a paper document) be fraudulent, any account-information the scammers will provide to you (such as ACCT#,ROUTING# to transfer any purchase-money from) WILL be bogus, so just report them immediately here, and to other sites so we can shut the scams down.
