ICO Limited reviews ICO and Pre-ICO projects and that with the same level of rigor as traditional Venture Capital companies. We screen all offering applicants using specific criteria – an evaluation of suitable risk, a likelihood of profitability, willingness to give up an equity stake in exchange for capital, etc.—and select only the projects that fit a specific profile. The process looks like this:

1. A Company Applies to Offer on ICO Limited:
They provide us with crucial information about the project, team, financials, and a pitch deck summarizing their business.
2. We Perform Institutional Level Due Diligence on the Company: ICO Limited team examines every aspect of a company before it listed on the platform. This includes criminal background checks on the founders, the examination of a company's financial statements, and may even interview a company's investors. It helps us weed out the fraudulent activity and make sure we only select the Project with the best possibility to succeed.
3. We Negotiate with ICO and pre-ICO projects: ICO Limited will negotiate with projects we believe are pricing themselves too high so that our investors get the best value. If a startup doesn't compromise on valuation, they may not get listed.

This year our company is planning to open a representation office in the US.
You have a great chance to prove yourself as a responsible person with a desire to work in a team and promote our services in the US.
My positive feedback on you and your productive work will allow me to recommend you as the manager of our new department.
The career growth can be fast it all depends on you.
We look forward to receiving your acceptance of this offer and to a mutually beneficial relationship.

My friend just got a job opportunity in the email he doesn’t remember which website he signed exactly that sent him the job but anyway they introduce the company as a real estate from Europe and that they are paying 3,000 dollars every 2 weeks ..
The position he got was a real estate consultant.. he doesn’t have real estate license so he wasn’t sure why they offered him the job ..
The woman that was in charge of him name is Rita Potak and she never answer her phone but she called him few times him strange assignments such as real estate report about where we live etc... like why would they hire someone for 6,000$ a month to do something they can just find in google..
He asked me about it I told him to wait and follow Rita’s instructions and if he will see something that doesn’t sound right to just quit and tell her that he is leaving the job..
A week later they really sent him assignment- to deposit a client check into his personal account to take his commission like 6% of check and to transfer the remaining money to them.. this assignment is where we were like “ok here’s the catch” . It’s illegal to deposit a business check to employee private bank account and they probably wanted him to deposit it and when the check return to press him to still send the money he owes them and to threat him ..
So when she asked it he emailed her back saying he won’t do it and please cancel the client check .. she just kept emailing him back that she will file a suit agains him and that he have to follow the instructions since he signed an employment agreement.. she never gave him w9 form or any employer form.. do you think he should be worry about it? For now he just blocked her so I just hope they will stop bothering him anyway I’m glad he told me this from the beginning so I can always tell what happened in case she will really step against him ...
sorry about my english I just hope I could at least make someone who familiar with the company name to avoid contact with them ..

That’s sucks I’m sorry to hear that . Did your friend have out any information? See the mistake i made was as filed a payroll form and all. They still haven’t touched my bank or my credit yet . I still haven’t told them that I know they’re scamming, I just stopped communication . How was the interview process like for your friend ? And did they tell him upfront about checks being deposited?

I also fill the payroll form, and everything was good until I started to ask for my paycheck
