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.

Global Union

Typical money mule scam targeting Australians, which invariably means the job involves receiving fraudulent bank transfers and forwarding money via Western Union. This message included white-on-white hashbuster text at the end of the message -- a technique last seen in the Green Tree scam, so I suspect this is the same scam under a new name.

InfoBite Software Ltd

Many thanks to A.C. for sending me this. At first glance, it looks like a typical money mule scam, but on closer investigation it appears to be an atypically nasty case. Most money mule scams deal in fraudulent direct bank transfers (from phishing) or forged cheques and money orders, but this one appears to be part of a credit card fraud gang. The amount of work involved in this scam is quite significant: they want you to set up a company and open a merchant account. I downloaded their FAQ document into Google docs for posterity, so see for yourself what's involved. To me it looks an awful lot like the mind-blowing organised credit card fraud operation documented by MGD, only this time the cover story is a software company, not web templates or e-books.

The website operated by this scam is quite slick -- it appears to have been ripped off from ELEKS Software.

A search on one of the associated phone numbers shows that this particular scam has been advertised under many different names, but all seem to end in "Textiles Industry Ltd". The "Textiles" cover story is inordinately popular with these scammers: do a search in my archives for that term, and see what I mean. It appears that this particular scam is targeting the USA, and the scam in question involves banking forged checks and forwarding money via Western Union or Money Gram.

This is a scam, probably West African Advance Fee Fraud. If so, then the company and the job are fabrications -- lies told in order to trick victims into paying bogus fees. Clear indications that this is a scam include (a) the fact that it it spam, (b) the UK +4470 telephone number which can be forwarded anywhere in the world, (c) the extensive use of freemail addresses such as, and (d) the fact that it's a petroleum company -- my archives are littered with this exact same scam carried out under a whole bunch of different oil company names.

Financial Times Business

This is one of the usual money mule scams where they send you bad money (forged cheques, fraudulent bank transfers) and ask you to send back good, unrecoverable money (usually Western Union or similar). "Financial Times Business" sounds like the name of a newspaper, but it's just something the scammers have made up, and any resemblance to any real company (or newspaper, for that matter) is probably coincidental. The concept of "Financial Times Business" seems to have been ripped off from, a website which appears to be perfectly legitimate. Scammers often impersonate reputable businesses in this manner. These scammers are using a range of HR-themed Gmail addresses, which is a modus operandi I've seen before (such as the Shamrock scam).

McMorris Scan Tech

This particular job ad looks like bait for an advance fee fraud scam. In such scams, applicants are readily offered jobs, or at least job interviews, but there are certain fees to be paid up front, such as visa fees. The point of the scam is to extract these payments on the pretext of a job offer. The job does not exist, and the scammer has no connection to the alleged company offering it, assuming that the company isn't a complete fiction in the first place. In this case, the company appears to be fictitious, and there is a facade website (not mentioned in the spam) operating under this name to give it an air of legitimacy. A modest amount of effort has been put into the facade, primarily by plagiarising material from BP. (As evidence, see this Google search, and try searching on other key phrases. BP spouted most of those corporate platitudes first.)
