Is it a Project Assistant or Operations Manager position?

Yesterday I shared a fake lead from Fuller Carter and made a note of his laziness in not proofreading his message.  Herrod Carney apparently learned from Carter or maybe is the same scammer using a different name. Tsk, tsk.  Sloppy work is just sloppy work, even if it is is a scam.

Notice that the message is almost identical to the one I shared yesterday?   The sender and position titles are different and while part-time is mentioned in the message heading, only full-time is referenced within the message.  It’s another example of a scammer copying and pasting script with minor changes.  Learn to spot these scams and share when you find them.

Be safe.

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.

Remember EFU Limited’s Application Processing Scam? They’re back!

This time they’re using the names VSD Virtual Services Data and Newman & Miller Associates.

I saw an ad on Cragislist that smelled wrong, so I requested more info.  Less than 24 hours later, Lori J. Stevenson responded with her scam offer.  I wrote about her and her company back in May – remember EFU Limited?

Basically they post ads, then when applicants respond, they hit them with the ‘pay us $24.95 (or whatever) for processing fees.’

This line of bull kills me –

This is just a small processing fee, protecting
from those who are not serious about doing this work. No business can
cover administrative cost, wasted time or provide costly materials to
everyone who inquires about this position. If this is not acceptable
for you, or you cannot afford this small cost, please disregard this email.

The ‘costly materials’ she refers to?  An email telling the applicant how to scam people the same way she is.  Wait, not ‘scam,’ but explanation of your work duties.

If you’d like to read the entire email, drop me a line and I’ll forward you a copy.  Remember, this is a scam, not a job.

As long as I can, I will nail these scamming beotches to the wall.  I’ll shout from the rooftoops about who they are, how they scam, and how to avoid them.

Be safe out there!

Warning – a new scam home job offer – js Design

Pathetic they are! It’s another wire transfer scam from a European company ‘seeking agents in the states to accept/process payments.’

Here’s the WHOIS info:
Domain name: jsdesignltd.com

Name servers:
ns3.provisov.net
ns4.provisov.net

Registrar: RegTime.net Limited
Creation date: 2008-02-27
Expiration date: 2009-02-27

Registrant (and administrative, technical and billing contact):
Anatoly Bargin
Email:
Organization: JS Design LTD

City: Moscow
State: Moscow obl.

This winner has been reported to AOL, Gmail, and Florida’s Secretary of State (because the company claims to be registered to do business there).

Wire transfer scam ‘jobs’ are not new, but this one deserved a warning because he posted a certificate on his site that’s supposedly from the Florida Secretary of State.   There are those who will see that and think the company is ok without doing additional research on it.

Not all of the scammers are this careless. Be careful.
