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.

The return-path is irrelevant -- in fact it may well belong to a real and totally uninvolved person, which is why I usually redact such headers. What counts is the address to which they want you to send replies. Here's the latest sample I've received.

In USA they usually deliver the funds within 10 days
if we have one bank account open to one Denmark bank
(we have the bank account open to one USA bank -

and this delay is not profitable for our company.
With Danish representatives help we can process
these payments faster and the customers will be served faster.

Customer Service Officer key tasks include

I then questioned the discrepency with the internet site and lack of ACN and amount of money transacted at any one time:

How much money would I normally expect to be deposited to
>my bank account in each transaction?
1,000-3,000 Aud per transaction.
I had a look at your website and noticed that you are located in Sydney
>Australia. I am located in Springfield Lakes QLD (Brisbane Southside).
>Please explain to me why an Australian company needs individuals to

>work?
Offshore Soft Ltd is american company and located in USA.
We are opening new office in Sydney
to represent our service in Australia.
Office will start work nearest 3-4 weeks.
We have no ACN and working office now and needed in
Customer Service Officers in Australia now.
We have many payments from Australia.

Also this position seems to focus on Foreign Currency Exchange, yet the
>website concentrates on Software Design and Development and I haven't
>found anything about the Foreign Currency Exchanges OffShoreSoft
>currency exchanges. Please explain.
We are providing business solutions for

By the way can anyone tell me why you could not scam the scammers by keeping the money and not passing it on.
PS Rule of Thumb is if involves Western Union its a scam

Spotter said...

Keeping the money is a bad idea because it's stolen. The money is taken from people who have been phished. If that isn't reason enough on its own, then bear in mind that it's really obvious where the money went. If you receive money like this, your best bet is to report the transaction as suspicious to your bank ASAP.
