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.

Yes, I have a separate blog entry for the Amato Logistics scam. These names get made up, used, and discarded with some regularity.

Ha ha ha I just got a letter with fax number and email saying that there is a person with the same name as mine in China, who died in a freaky accidnet and how hasnt claimed a lot of his money from his bank (HuaXia Bank), and because we have this same name he found me and want me to share this fortune with him. Half, half. Thats fair. NOT!!!!

Fax +86 206 282 4624
Yangl20@yahooo.com

I am reporting this to the police now!

REMEMBER IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!

sallyemma said...

We have just received a letter of a similar ilk, from the assumed Mr lang.

Again it states that we have inherited a large amount of money, from an unknown benefactor - whoopee!

I think this 'Mr Lang' could be preying on more guilable people and should be stopped!

Would appreciate anybody else commenting on such a scam.

Please everyone when ever get an offer by doing nothing its a fukin ripoff

Spotter said...

ANY job offer which involves "collecting payments" or "reshipping goods" from home on behalf of employers you've never met is a scam. You don't need to know the company name or anything else about it: the job description tells the whole story. In fact, the company name and other details are a smokescreen -- irrelevant details which exist only to distract you from the core scam. That is the number one secret to spotting scams, and I wish that more people knew it.
