Telecomm could be boring but not the way we do it. We moved PBX to the cloud and that changes everything. Power to the customer, which means they get to touch everything: change settings with Web forms, configure and re-configure from their smartphones and fiddle with a fast-growing pile of features and capabilities. The possibilities are endless, and that's where you come in.

We work closely with local Product and Engineering teams and remote development centers in Odessa, Ukraine, St. Petersburg, Russia and Ximan, China.

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
