C. S. Aluminium Corporation fake job lead

Once again, a fraudulent job lead came my way.  Once again, I’m sharing the message and pointing out the red flags.

Red flags:

  • Mr. S. T. Chang’s email address is hunter@dankov.lipetsk.ru.  If C.S. Aluminum is in Taiwan, why would the company president use an email address based in Russia?
  • ‘Payment Collection Agent’ position should always make you pause.  The company location, salary, and list of duties should be clear and not suspect.
  • The note claiming the position will not disrupt your present job is suspect.  How many legitimate employers make that statement from the beginning?
  • If the message shows up in your spam folder with a warning message, it’s very unlikely the job is legitimate.

Be safe and smart, people.
