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.

Money mule jobs on offer, as usual. "WC AG Inc" appears to be a complete fiction, and the reference to DoubleClick is a red herring.

Well Im one of them fools that got taken by the email from James Kraus.
Some poor slob got taken for 1,300 thinking he purchased a camera thru ebay. Now my paypal account is messed up and I dont know how to get it recified.
I had no idea this was a scam, and am pretty smart usually to spot these. Any ideas what i can do to get this corrected? I had no intention to be part of any scam or laundering, i was just hoping to suppliment my income with what i thought was a telecommuting job....
