I got this email to my inbox and I wonder if this is real or scam?

Subject: Book Keeper Offer
From: Terry Wilson <twilson@gomobilehiring.com>

Good day

This email is from Tasc Software, a division of Gomobile Ireland. Our company is

currently recruiting agents that can work as an online book-keeper.

I came across your email and brief profile through an email listing affiliated
with the US chamber of commerce.
We are trying to expand our business to the USA, CANADA and AUSTRALIA.
It has been quite expensive and stressful for our agents to catch up with
meetings and receive payment from clients outside the United Kingdom. Whenever
clients outside the United Kingdom buy software from
us, we have to wait for our bank to clear the payment before we can send out the

activation key. This sometimes takes weeks and thus affects the standard of our
services. So we decided to contact you to work as our company Representative.

If you accept to work for us, you will receive $1200 (One thousand and Two
Hundred dollars) as salary every month ending and you are also entitled to
remove a 10% commission off every transaction you make.i.e payment collected for

the company through you.

You will be contacted by our clients for inquiries and for payment. All you have

to do is cash each payment, deduct 10% and forward 90% to the companies account
or as stated by the officer in charge.
Your Job is completely legal and we have a lawyer in place to answer all your
legal questions.

If interested please reply with the following information and our customer care
service will get in touch with you on phone or email.

Full Name: Age:
Address:
City:
State:
Country:
Zip Code:
Mobile Phone Number:
Current Occupation:

Please note that you do not have to be a book keeper to apply for this offer as
this is meant for all individuals above 18 that can speak English fluently.
You must also have access to check your email at least twice a day, because some

of our clients willbe contacting you by email and you must provide a mobile
phone number.

Regards,

Terry Wilson

Their website looks legal to me. I'd be happy to hear different opinions because if that is really a scam, I fell for it :p

Just to repeat everything already said, this is scam. A job coming to you when you didn't even apply? Also, they're asking for personal info, not a good sign. Stay way clear.

The address can be real, but they may be using it to avoid confusion, just to trust them. The address probably belongs to a real company, but whoever sent you that email used it to look true.

It's a scam.

No professionals would ever ask for your personal information through email.

Thank you for the feed back. Yes it's kinda obvious. So you're warned in advance I guess :)

anyway why would they mail you if you are in germany? :confused:

Well, who says I want to stay here? :p

It's the fact that you aren't currently in Ireland, and they didn't ask if you were wiling to relocate, which seems strange given the personal info they asked for later.

As others have said, why would they contact you, bearing in mind you live in Germany, for work in Australia, USA and Canada? And googling Tasc Software leads to a UK based schools' software company, with no links to Irish companies.Plus, if they say they have a lawyer already there to deal with legal questions, that can;t be a good sign.
