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.

I got the email from Mia Robertson as well. I never trust a "job offer" from a company that uses a free email service such as yahoo, gmail or hotmail. Especially if they are supposed to be such a big company.

Anyway my email came with a supposed address for the company as well:


1129 Atlantic Avenue
Atlantic City, NJ 08401
ETrust Group Inc.

When I tried to do reverse look up search for it, all sites come up empty.

Post office web site said:

I got the same e-mail from John Greenman-John Greenman and I am a Chief Manager of HR Department of Single Group Inc. also tagged as MMT Group Inc.. sounds like laundering to me!

Thank you all for putting this scam on the net. I received a very similar e-mail yesterday and am looking for a job. It's not very cool to get these bogus job offers when you really need a good paying job. Kudos to all of you for helping less of us become SUCKERS. I guess if it sounds to good to be true...IT IS!

I guess they consider me a sucker too, because I received two e-mails---one from John Greenman and one from Mia Robertson. I wish these people would fall off of the earth!!! It's a shame that people who are looking for a REAL job can't be left alone by scammers. Thanks for the info!
