Security Breach Could Expose 40 million to Fraud

By JOE BEL BRUNO, Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK - A security breach of customer information at a credit card-processing company could expose to fraud up to 40 million cardholders of multiple brands, MasterCard International Inc. said Friday.

The credit card giant said its security division detected multiple instances of fraud that tracked back to CardSystems Solutions Inc. of Tucson, Ariz., which processes transactions for banks and merchants.

"I wanted to report the "job" which was sent under
your company's banner. Frankly, I am receiving so
many warnings and apparent redirects, now I am only
hoping this is going to the correct location.
Many "unsafe site" warnings are being generated in
any contact attempt; via software "red flags"
generated by more than one analysis.
If the people below are able to have access to my
CV/personal info I don't know how to trust or
safely use your services from this point on. A
quick internet search reveals a decreasing lack of
confidence in the security of your site(s). I'm
afraid I am joining the ranks of those wary of the
increasinglyhighly suspicious activity in dealing
with your service. (see below)

I recently recieved an e-mail from a company called Sun Germany Computers wanting me to cash checks that would be sent in my name. I am sending a copy of the e-mail. Please see below.

Hello Beverly Hunter. My name is Pradeep Baliarsingh and I work for a company called Sun Germany Computers I found your resume on because we are searching for reliable professionals across the United States who are interested in a potentially lucrative partnership with an international firm.

Sun Germany Computers is a leading software company in Germany and we are currently expanding our operations in the United States. But because of various banking and legal restrictions, we are unable to open commercial bank accounts in every state. As such, Sun Germany Computers is recruiting partners to conduct simple banking transactions on our behalf.

The process is simple. If you were interested in becoming a US partner of Sun Germany Computers, you would sign an agreement that would make you an official financial representative of our company, able to accept invoice payments on our behalf. Instead of asking our American clients to conduct complicated international payment transactions (which are especially complex for German companies), we have them work with our partners to submit payments. You would then forward the payments to us, a simple transaction for an individual.

Sun Germany Computers pays its partners a 10% commission on every transaction. In addition, we will take care of any incremental tax liability you incur. Depending on which state you are in, and of course on how good business is, your monthly commissions could be as high as $4,000 per month.

If you are interested in working with us, or if you want more information, you can contact me directly at my personal email address: I'll need your full name and mailing address so I can send you the contract and other paperwork necessary to get started.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Pradeep Baliarsingh
