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.

Chin Huan Consultant (China) LTD

This scammer is abusing the "make your own social network" service offered by Ning. It should be very obvious that this is a scam: the salary offered is ludicrously high, and the work conditions are ludicrously lax. This kind of bait is usually associated with advance fee fraud: it's a juicy job offer, but if you bite, you'll find that you need to pay some incidental fees before you can get the job. There is no job, only a scammer conning you into sending him money.

Thanks for posting this - I figured it was a scam, but my job is something recruited abroad, and I'd done something similar in Germany (for real) so wasn't sure. $29K was a little too dreamy. Anyway thanks for the confirmation for those of us a little slower on the uptake. :)

I too got this email so it is so going around. I took mine to the local cops because I had just fell short of coaching a trave basketball team that would have gone to China so I didn't see the humor.

Just got an email similar to the post here. I called the number to be sure. It was a bloody Nigerian guy who answered the phone. Knew straight away that this was a scam. I was working on behalf of a client as well. How embarrassing it would have been.
