Hi there,

This is undoubtedly a scam. 

Whenever you are asked to pay money upfront before you can get a large payment, be aware!

My advice is to check if this company is registered with the FSB as a financial service provider.

If not, don't do business with them because there is really no way to hold them accountable.
