I just received this e-mail today. Internet research shows that they have existed only since about January 2006, and their website consists of a single page telling about how attractive they are. I also found one enthusiastic testimony on a chat site by someone who has been with them for six months and claims a 68% increase in his take-home pay. Has anyone heard of them, experienced them, and is this really legit? It seems too good to be true. I know from my lengthy discussions with the French tax people that they just barely tolerate the French sociétés de portage, I can't even imagine convincing them to accept a Luxembourg's the e-mail:

hello Aug 4, 2006

The lack of a website makes me twitchy.

And the mention of CDI makes me think that there's a lengthy
period that you have to commit to.

Perhaps there is a trade association for sociétés de portage, as in France?

I think it's too good to be true. And thre cuold be complications with the French tax authorities.

Keep us posted through !!
