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&E Textiles

Search this blog for "textiles", and you'll notice that it's a popular theme with scammers. No, I have no idea why -- just one of those things, I guess. As usual, there may be a real company that operates by this name, but the name is purely incidental. The scam is almost certainly check forgery: the scammer wants you to bank forged checks and send most of the money to him. You can draw on a forged check, but the bank can also deduct it back out of your account after you draw on it, so guess who loses money.

Felles Logistics

A correspondent notifies me of "Felles Logistics" at who appear to be looking for suckers to act as reshippers (receive and remail packages). The job description is like so.

Persons who will be accepted for this position will follow these simple instructions:
1. Receive correspondence from our suppliers to his/her residential address.
2. Report to our managers.
3. Fill in forms and papers as it will be shown in our managers' instructions (you will receive an email with the instructions for each box and PREPAID shipping labels).
4. Mail packages out. You can do this at your local Post Office or we can order a courier pick-up.
5. Provide scans of the mailing receipts.
6. Receive money from our company for each shipped out package.

The usual catch in this kind of work is that you are reshipping goods which have been purchased using stolen credit cards. This creates all sorts of legal complications for the "employee".

The "Felles Logistics" website claims that the company was founded in 1994, but their website is less than a year old.

This particular spam makes it look like they are recruiting money mules, but the job vacancies section of their website also contains a reshipper job description. Maybe these guys specialise in recruiting suckers generally, providing this as a service to organised crime on the black market. It wouldn't surprise me, given the degree of specialisation already out there.

Dr Dove Smith

Odd. I don't remember applying for a job with a scammer who calls himself "Dr Dove Smith". Maybe he used some other name earlier. Or maybe he's just skipping the whole "would you like to apply for a job" bit, and hoping that people will jump at this opportunity for a job. Given that he wants to send me a check, I suspect that he's into check forgery. There's an outside chance that he's setting up a reshipper scam, though. Either way, it's a scam.

Scammers change names a lot because their scams are discovered fairly rapidly. This one seems to be using several names simultaneously, which is sloppy of them. The spam, copied below, uses the name "MFC LTD", without specifying what the "MFC" is supposed to stand for. "Mail Forwarding Company", maybe? The website at seems to prefer "Executive Mail Drop Services" (EMDS).

I call it a reshipper scam. These guys want to purchase things (usually laptops and such like) using stolen credit card details, and they want the merchants to ship locally so that they don't get too suspicious. The local reshippers then forward the goods overseas. The merchants eventually figure out that they've been robbed, and may pay the unsuspecting reshipper a visit, hoping to get their goods back.

You really don't want to be in this line of work. The amount of time you will spend trying to persuade the police that you are innocent isn't worth it. They'll probably take all the money you get paid as compensation for the merchants that were robbed in any case.

we come home, without any will to socialize, do something at home. You have will only to crawl to your bed, quickly go
through some channels on TV and, AT LAST, go to bed... Alarm is ringing. And it is over and over again...NO, SUCH JOB IS NOT

This spam is unimpressive. The grade of English is very poor, as is the attention to detail and overall design sense. Beyond that, it's just the usual money mule recruitment scam: the senders are looking for unwitting saps to launder money (or just be outright victims of theft themselves, perhaps).

Despite the lack of money-handling talk in this job offer, I'm prepared to bet that the applicants will be given money mule duties, receiving stolen funds via bank transfer and forwarding it internationally via Western Union or Money Gram. I note that several countries are mentioned, but the payment is expressed in Australian dollars. Are the other countries just a red herring?

I also note they have registered two domain names for this scam at this point in time: and The .md domain was created on 2008-07-13 (timezone not specified), and the .eu domain was created on 2008-07-16 (timezone not specified). I won't bother checking creation times on any future .md domains, however, since they don't have a functioning WHOIS server. Both domains are using nameservers and, the parent of which appears to have been registered for the nonce as a DNS-only domain.

It's not clear whether there is a company matching the description in this spam. What is clear, however, is that it's fraudulent. This is cheque fraud: the scammer wants people to cash fraudulent cheques and forward the money internationally via Western Union or Money Gram. Such cheques clear for long enough to draw on them, but bounce later, potentially leaving the account overdrawn.

This scam targets Australians, so I assume it's a money mule scam involving direct funds transfers between bank accounts and forwarding the proceeds overseas via Western Union. The scammers do not provide a company name, fictitious or otherwise. They are using several Gmail addresses in addition to the one shown here. It's curious that they ask for "U.S. authorized work status", but presumably that's just because they've mixed up their localisation in a copy/paste error.

Shuenn Jaan Machinery (impostors)

In some sense this is just the same old story: scammers pretending to be a company with payment processing difficulties as a means to recruit victims. On the other hand, you don't often see a requirement that the employee have a credit card account, by which I suspect they mean a merchant account capable of receiving payments. I strongly suspect that anyone who did have such an account would realise what an awful risk this is. I may respond to this just to see if the scam is what I think it is.

Atrium Transport&Logis Solutions

This is a reshipper scam. The usual story with these is that the "employers" are making purchases of expensive equipment (e.g. laptop computers) using stolen credit card details, and they want a shipping address that is somewhat local to the seller so that they don't raise too many suspicions. The employee reships a whole bunch of equipment overseas, and eventually the sellers realise they've been ripped off and come knocking on the door where all their goods were delivered. No good will come of this.

WWP Sales Group

Same old scam; new made-up company name. Whoever it is that's targeting the "Dear Australian Population" in this way last did so under the identity "Int. Sales Company", but we've seen the same phrase used in the "Sales Company from Spain" scam, and the "Cama Sales and Distribution Group" scam. As usual, the scam is money laundering: they want money mules to accept transfers of stolen money into their bank accounts, then send most of it overseas via Western Union or similar.
