Does this not sound like a scam?

We Have A Part Time Job For You!

RECRUITMENT INC. - "Don’t leave your career or selection of candidates to fate."

Established in 1979, RECRUITMENT INC. is the UK’s leading pharmaceutical sales recruitment company. Specialising in pharmaceutical recruitment since 1985, we pride ourselves in our proven ability to recruit the best candidates for the UK’s leading pharmaceutical companies time after time.

Individuality is the key to our success. We treat each client, candidate and employee as an individual with their own individual needs and tailor our service offerings to best fit these needs.

RECRUITMENT INC. is unique in that we are a Consultancy in the true sense. We can advise our candidates and clients through the maze of recruitment issues that they face daily because we have the experience, knowledge and resources to do so.

Our company has reached enormous sales volumes in major European countries. We are currently trying to expand our services over in the USA and Canada. The IRS directly supports the market testing efforts of agencies by providing general guidelines, through the development of Market Testing Toolkits and providing guidance regarding the related agency banking framework. Therefore, RECRUITMENT INC. has been granted a Market Test Authorization from the IRS in January 1st, 2007 and is valid thru January 20th, 2008. This Market Test Authorization allows great flexibility regarding taxes.

RECRUITMENT INC. is currently recruiting Regional Financial Managers in the Canada who will receive payments from our customers in the Canada and redistribute the funds as needed.

-Why do we prefer hiring people instead of opening an office over in the Canada?
-Because it is far cheaper paying a comission of 6% rather than going through all the paper hassle of registering a business in the Canada and opening offices all over the country. Besides, there is no certainty that our company will succeed selling the products in the Canada, that's why it is called a Market Test. Upon, a successful result, we will being opening offices in the United States.

Agent's work consists in receiving payments from our customers in Canada and making
further payments as instructed to a regional affiliate department, depending on
the customer's location. Being a part-time job, it should not take more than 2 hours per day.
Agent's commission is 6% from each transaction (for instance: you receive $1000.00, you will
keep $60.00 as payment for your service). All further money transfer charges and fees are covered
by our company. So you will be responsible just for making proper payments in time.
Each transaction will be made only after prior notification by phone call or e-mail.

You are not required to:
have any extra knowledge or to be experienced in this business and
this occupation can endow additional income to you and your family as it
will not require more than few hours per week.
If you are interested in our offer, please feel free to ask for the general provisions
of the contract.

Workopolis has (apparently) sent me three "we have a job for you" emails in the past month: this same email three times. If that doesn't scream "scam" enough for you, they continually refer to "the Canada", and apparently they don't have a website (or even anything showing up on Google).

Readers with insight or foreknowledge are welcome to post theories/discoveries/legalities in the comments.
