FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):

Why SoftFocus, Inc only hire US citizens and residents?

When we initially started operations in the United States, we experienced some issues with US trade laws that can be summarized into two different problems:

All financial services operations have to take place inside the USACustomers cannot make payments to a company don't have offices inside the US, even if the company is an industry leader around the world. Our Home Office is located in Russia, which is why customers are not able to directly transfer money (payments for our designs) to our office in Russia.

Under US law, the funds must be deposited into the account of the Financial Manager of Staffing Solutions that resides in the USA. Then, it is the Financial Manager's responsibility to transfer the funds to our business in Russia.

The company has to be registered in the US tax administration, which we have already finished. By maintaining a Financial Manager in the US, we are able to solve both of these problems and continue to help the companies that need us in the USA.

Review about: Job Opportunity.



This is a well put together scam. The main goal of this "company" is to find US business owners that, due to the economy, are needing to supplement their income in order to keep their business afloat.

Once a person replies with interest in the "program" the "company" will then send an email requesting bank account numbers in order to be able to transfer funds from US to Russia.

This is bogus since any business outside of the US that has customers who are in the US are able to receive payment via electronic checks and credit/debit cards. DO NOT REPLY TO THIS!!!!!!


I too received that email in Apr 2008. I haven't yet been able to independently verify any info in the email.

So, as you say it is suspicious. I think it is a scam.
