Sounds like money laundering to me.
Their "customers" are criminals who are sending you money to accept as money for orders (that you yourself don't see directly).
The company in London receive the money from *YOU*, anywhere BUT London (who wants to bet on Nigeria?).
Later the Feds come knocking (actually, busting) your door down and arrest you on fraud charges.
The guys sending you the money are free, and the people withdrawing it are also free (WU is untraceable), so you are left facing the wrath of the
The laundering part occurs between you and the guys in "London". The money on their books looks legit, they deal with it legitimately, etc... but it
is NOT. The orders will be completely fabricated, and you'll holding the records for receipt of the money. As far as they (and the authorities) are
concerned, you really were taking money for their "legit" orders, which when you are investigated, will turn out to be a fabrication. The bad part
is it will look like you knowingly fabricated it through fake orders.
Bad Guy places order. Bad Guy -> You -> Bad Guy #2.
Bad Guy #2 knows Bad Guy placed the order, and you are taking the money from him.
Bad Guy #2 will make it look like you are placing the order on behalf of clients.
Cops bust Bad Guy #2, he looks legit, but sees you are processing the orders (and money) from his fake records.
Police bust you, and see that you are placing orders (and/or taking money for them and sending them on).
Police try and trace customers that don't exist. You get busted again for false accounting.
Don't get involved. You could end up with a rap sheet for money laundering, fraud, deception, and possibly even tax evasion.
EDIT: Check out Hildon Textiles. Websites can be very misleading. See if they exist with Companies House or Inland Revenue (now HMRC). If they are
legit, there won't be a problem, but WU is prime for scams, and the money could be going anywhere to anyone.
WU alone screams ALARM! at me. RUN AWAY (but still check them out)!
