No Listing On Company Website
1st of all if you look up “Noble Group” on google you will find that “Noble Group Limited is a physical commodities trader. Sourcing bulk commodities from low cost regions such as South America, South Africa, Australia and Indonesia.” therefore it is a real legitimate company and if you go to their website and look under Careers, you will find their job listings at https://tas-noblegroup.taleo.net/careersection/ngl_ex/jobsearch.ftl?lang=en#. There is only 5 jobs currently available in the United States, all at different office locations and wouldn’t you know.. there is NO job listed for a “Remote Administrative Assistant”!
But according to Ms. Cherryl Tokarski there is!

I read the above Employment Agreement and found one paragraph in it quite amusing:
Following 5/27/2016, Employee will start to be employed by the Company pursuant to the terms set forth in this Agreement. Employee’s employment with the Company is for no specified .As a result, Employee is free to terminate his employment relationship at any time, with advance notice (14 days), and for any reason or for no reason. Similarly, the Company is free to terminate its employment relationship with Employee at any time, with advance notice (14 days), and with or without cause. Furthermore, although terms and conditions of Employee’s employment relationship with the Company may change over time, nothing shall change the at-will employment relationship between Employee and the Company.
The agreement has an electronic signature using the name and title of
Accounts Manager (“Company”)
So we have a big shot commodities trader in Hong Kong with a revenue of 46 billion USD in 2016 supposedly hiring work at home administrative assistants in the US with no experience, no application. no interview and no background check! They just send an email to some random person they don’t even address by name.. you simply respond asking a question they won’t answer and POOF you’re HIRED just like that! Sorry but a legitimate job doesn’t work like that in the real world! Don’t be fooled!
Although there is nothing specific in the job description or responsibilities that states anything that indicates the “Administrative Assistant” would be handling financial transactions or processing payments like most all of the money mule job scams we have warned our readers about over the last 3 years, however I’m 99% positive the “employee” would certainly be asked to do just that shortly after they start the job. Most likely it would be a “request” from a fake customer or “investor” in a bind using the excuse of being unable to transfer funds directly to the company themselves.
This so called Remote Administrative Assistant position is a fake offer and is in NO WAY associated with the legitimate Noble Group company. Scammers has stolen the Noble Group’s name, credentials and company information to lure unsuspecting job seekers into a money mule or fake check scam and steal their money!
What To Do If You Are A Victim
If you have fell victim to an employment scam like this, you need to contact your bank immediately and close your account IF you have provided your account information to the scammers. Next file a police report with your local authorities and then file a complaint with the FBI’s internet crime center at http://www.ic3.gov/
If you provided your personal information like ss # birthdate etc , you need to contact the 3 credit bureaus- TransUnion, Equifax and Experian, and place a fraud alert on your report. These criminals can steal your identity and may try and obtain credit in your name. Doing this will alert you for at least 90 days about any suspicious activity.
In the hands of a thief, just your name, address, Social Security number or date of birth, can be used over and over months- even years down the road to:
Open new lines of credit
Seek medical attention
Drain savings and retirement accounts
Provide an alias when arrested
Get a job or file false tax returns
Get Payday Loans in your name
Obtain service agreements for cellular service or utilities
Obtain Government Documents such as a drivers license or passport
That’s why I highly recommend you get some sort of ongoing identity theft protection such as the services offered through companies like LifeLock-Visit Their Website Here or Identity Force-visit their website here! LifeLock and Identity Force are both reputable companies that monitors your accounts and alerts and protects you from identity theft.
