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.

A correspondent informs me that this identity is still active. Here is the text of the spam in question. It now looks very much like advance fee fraud rather than a money mule scam: they want you to pay a "lawyer" (who is also the scammer, just at a different email address) to have some travel documents processed.

(Conversation as of November 12, 2007 from 8:43AM)

[08:43] (me): sign me up!
[08:43] rhtlm: Hello
[08:44] (me): hey you sent me an e-mail over the weekend to make more money, tell me how
[08:44] rhtlm: Yea
[08:45] rhtlm: Have You Read And well Understand What You'll Be Doing For Our Company?
[08:46] (me): can you send me some documentation so that I might read about it more thoroghly?
[08:46] rhtlm: Okay
[08:47] rhtlm: Okay,the job is all about being a payment collector from my customers in the state, which would never affect you present state of working,and we're willing to pay you ($300) on each payment you receive from them on my behalf.And this payment is for the supply of fabric textiles materials I supply to them.the payment will be post to you
[08:47] (me): ok
[08:47] (me): so I just recieve the payments?
[08:48] rhtlm: This is in view of our not having an office presently in the USA, Canada and major European countries. You don?t need to have an Office and this certainly wont disturb any form of work you have going at the moment
[08:49] rhtlm: Company produces the following varieties of clothing materials: - batiks, assorted fabrics for interior decor, silk and traditional costumes which we have clients we supply weekly in the states. Our integrated yarn and fabric manufacturing operations use state-of-the-art textile equipment from the worlds leading suppliers. Order processing, production monitoring and process flow are seamlessly integrated through a company-wide computer network. Our Company manufactures and sells textile and fabrics, we have seller all over the world to distribute our products.You know, that it's not easy to start a business in a new market???
[08:50] (me): yeah, i know
[08:50] rhtlm: There are hundreds of competitors, close direct contacts between suppliers and customers and other difficulties, which impede our sales promotion. We have decided to deliver the products in upfront, it's very risky but it should push up sales on 25 percent. Thus we need to get payments for our products as soon as possible because customers can just "forget" to pay
[08:51] (me): uh huh
[08:51] rhtlm: Presently with the amount of Orders we have, we cannot put on hold, For fear of loosing the customers out rightly. Secondly we cannot cash these payments from the USA, Canada and major European countries soon enough as international Cheques take about 21 working days for cash to be made available. We lose about 75,000 USD of net income each month because we have money transfer delays
[08:52] (me): ok
[08:53] rhtlm: Your task is to coordinate payments from customers and help us with the payment process. You are not involved in any sales. Our sales manager sells products. Once he makes a sale we deliver the product to a customer (usually through COURIE SERVICES). The customer receives and checks the products.After this has been done the customer has to pay for the products. About 90 percent of our customers in Canada,USA AND EUROPEAN COUNTRIES prefer to pay through Certified Cheques based on the amount involved
[08:56] rhtlm: Is That well Understood??
[09:01] rhtlm: Hello, you there?
[09:01] (me): yes
[09:01] (me): sorry, was getting coffee
