This company has a representative contact you through email. The representative tells you that they are the person in charge of training and that he or she will be emailing you study material each day which you would have to take a test on at the end of the week. After the second week, they will send you another email that states the following:
I’m writing to let you know that I’ve set up an interesting project for you in our procurement department – something
to keep you occupied and earn you some pocket-money whilst you’re doing the training. We’re currently opening a new office in Europe and they
need several items of equipment – things like laptops, cameras and phones. Apparently, our procurement department won’t be able to find any
reasonably priced suppliers for at least another month, and obviously the office needs the equipment in order to be up and running in time
for the official opening. The department have therefore decided to take on part-time managers to source the necessary items until they
sign a permanent agreement with the suppliers.
You’ve done well in the test; your resume is very impressive and our psychologists have given you an excellent report,
so you should have no problem getting onto the program.
The position comes with a salary of $300 a week. There will be approximately 5 hours’ work per week. The job will mainly involve purchasing
computer equipment online – laptops, scanners, printers and the like. Finance will send you a manual explaining how to access funds
and make payments. If you have any questions in that area, please contact them immediately. As well as your salary, they will also
be sending your commission on a weekly basis. You won’t be required to share any of your personal information.
The job will run concurrently with your stage one training, i.e. it finishes after you’ve taken your final training test. It’s not only a nice
way to earn a little extra cash, it’ll also give you some great practical experience, which will be a distinct advantage in the long run.
Furthermore, it’ll earn you some extra training points, which will come in very handy against the stiff competition in TN. If you’re interested
in applying (and I strongly advise it), just let me know and I’ll pass the info on to the training department.
By the way, if you do take this job it will improve your prospects significantly and double the size of your training
paycheck ($4,000 instead of standard $2,000). It’ll also put you in line for a much better paid position with the company.
The project is due to start tomorrow, so please let me know asap.

This is a total scam. I found a similar case at this website: https://scamwarners.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=273697. If you scan down the page, you will see an identical letter written to the person in that complaint.
