TDI Limited - possible scam

A friend of mine was contacted by someone claiming to be from a company called TDI Limited. The job involves: "Transferring payments straight from customers to our free-lancers by means of international money transfer systems"

It seems like a scam to me. I'm just putting this out there to see if anyone else hits this page looking for similar info.

Please leave a comment if you are getting something similar.

UPDATE: So, this is a scam. It is called a payment processing scam. See here for more details: http://www.delphifaq.com/faq/scams/f1057.shtml

Basically, they will have you set up a bank account, make a fraudulent transfer to your account, then ask you to make transfers out. After a couple days the bank will notice the first fraudulent transfer and go after you for the money. Also, I don't know what the definition of money laundering is, but this seems close.

Furthermore, if you look up the registration information of their website here:
You will see they only registered the website on June 26, 2011. So, this big international company has only had a web site for 2 weeks.

Stay away from this scam.
