This guy thinks that by using the name of a legitimate company and offering a high salary will draw in job seekers. Silly, silly criminal.
Transaction specialist = money laundering or fake check scam.
Once again, the crook, Justin Powell in this case, sent an unsolicited email – but not just to me, to several recipients (big red flag). Look at these requirements and benefits –
- Be at least 21 years old. - Not special Qualifications Needed. - Have a minimal experience and knowledge of basic bank operations. - Ability to maintain confidentiality of all information. - Willingness to work from home, take responsibility, set up and achieve goals. - The Ability to create good administrative reporting. - Honesty, responsibility and promptness in operations. - The ability to operate with more than one task effectively, and have an adaptable, flexible, professional attitude. - The ability of stable communication with our company and on-time and detailed reporting. - Familiar to working online, Internet and e-mail skills. What we offer: - Generous salary (over 3,000.00 USD monthly). - Social benefits and medical insurance. - Free training and seminars. - Paid Holidays plus 2 weeks of Paid Time Off (PTO). This is easy job, but your help is very important for us and our clients. This job does not require any special education. You wouldn't have to pay us for taking you on our list. However we guarantee stable income.
Don’t be fooled! There is no easy job that requires no experience or qualifications. None.
Here’s the kicker – Justin wants to be conacted only through the email provided in the message, and of course it’s different from the sender’s address. The company site is awfully familliar – it’s the same template as another scammer I called out.
Justin Powell is not the only name to watch for. Craig Keaton, German Makovski, and Graham Atkinson are also associated with this scam.
ScamFraudAlert has already posted a report on this scam, complete with WHOIS search results. It’s another site to bookmark.
Criminals know that times are getting tighter and that the holidays are around the coner. They prey on our fears and desperation. Don’t think ‘this one should be okay’ or let your need for money push you into their arms. Be safe!
