Fake job opportunity from D&B Packaging & Shipping

It’s getting close to the start of another school year, so that means scammers are targeting parents and college students. They know how much we have to shell out in the pre-season and hope that our wishes fro more money make us less leery of offers that are too good to be true.

Caroline Brent emailed me with an offer and may email you as well.

If the job details or email address seems familiar, it’s because Wallace Campbell emailed me from the same address about a Packaging Manager position the other day.  I told you, some scammers don’t even try to hide anymore.

Don’t let the number of scammers approaching you from Career Builder turn you away from your job search.

Be safe.

Fake Packaging Manager position

Online job search websites are blessings and curses.  The sites make it easier to find companies that hire workers with standard, flex time, and telecommuting schedules and gives job seekers and employers to connect from anywhere in a company’s territory.  The curse is the possibility of scammers finding potential targets from the user pool.  While some scammers target employers, others target job seekers.

A typical job scam making the rounds involves shipping or reshipping packages for companies that are just starting to break into the North American market.  If a potential employer says a home-based position involves shipping and receiving, it’s fake.  You’ll either give your information to a criminal or become an unwitting accessory to crime.

This is one of the newer scams appearing in the spam folder.

Home-birds?  Interesting term for a potential employer to use in an introductory email.  Wow, up to $150 a week during probationary period.  Even if you think this one might be legitimate, are you willing to risk it for that little?  Granted, the scammer decided to forgo the typical high salary hook, but offering starvation wages is not the way to get a bite.

There are NO legitimate home-based shipping and receiving positions.  None.

Be safe.
