"Shifflett Martin Stores" scam

As far as I can tell, there is no such company as "Shifflett Martin Stores", although there may be legitimate companies with a similar name, but this particular  job offer is a fraud.

From the insistence that potential employees / victims have a bank account with either Wells Fargo or Wachovia indicates that they will probably be accepting wire transfers from bank accounts where the password has been stolen (because transfers between accounts in the same bank are usually immediate).
