Job scam quick guide: it's a scam if...

  • they want you to collect and forward money in any way (a "money mule" job). You'll wind up engaged in money laundering, personally defrauded via expertly forged cheques, money orders, etc, or defrauding someone else who pays for goods that never arrive.
  • they want you to receive packages and reship them somewhere else. The goods will have been obtained fraudulently, and they're just using you to make the shipping address appear local. You will be aiding fraud.
  • they want up-front payment (either to them or someone else) of any sort for anything before you can get the job. This is advance fee fraud: there is no job -- it's just a big con to extract money from you.
  • they want you to buy any kind of "membership" or "kit" in order to start. Forget it -- it's not a real job at all: they're trying to sell you something, and they're probably making a bunch of other false claims about it if they're pitching it as a "job".
  • it's a job offer, and it's spam. There are LOTS of these scams about, as you can see.

Yo Ideceive!.!

How are you? I hope you are fine. I missed you so much honey. I have
been thinking about our last meeting so much and I'll

never forget all the fun we had together that month.
About me all the same, same town same city same job hheheh all the
same I am bored and I cant wait to visit u next year.

Almost nothing has changed between us; my hart is waiting for you.
By the way, do you remember that distributor of art, who helped me
selling different items, yes, that ones I was reselling

to Artists and Collectors.
Their Comicion to our money-bags!! They want to sell their antiques at
the Art Market in Australia. But they have some

reasons for not opening a branch in Australia for the moment. Maybe
next year, this means that I can move to Sydney very
The only thing I can say is that I've worked with this company for a
long time and they are really the best bosses I ever

had in my life, you know all the time I have in my life for my
activities and also They never let me down. I am completely

satisfied with their assistance in all work matters.
In short they are searching for people for distant-work. This job will
take only couple of hours a day, but the salary is

rather acceptable, 300-400 dollars weekly.
They asked me to help them in finding any bulletin boards. I know that
you work with different kinds of announcements and

may be you can advice something. Or may be you know a couple of honest
people who need some work. The requirements to

candidate are not too high, he should be an honest person able to work
with PC- Know about Internet- and some other office

tools, you know, like Word Excel MSN, etc.

So if you have someone in mind, say them to write to

PS. By the way, you promised me to call and didn't keep it. It's no
good forgetting your old and faithful friend. I'll always be glad to
here from you,

Remember me to your mates,
Love you Heepss,
