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.

Iron Words Inc.

A search shows that this particular scam has been circulating since at least 2008, but I can't see it in my own archives anywhere, and it's still active, so here 'tis. This job has been widely advertised on lots of employment ad websites. Watch out, folks: those employment ad websites rarely (if ever) verify that the advertisers are legitimate!

Although the job description is short on details, it clearly involves receiving and forwarding money, making it one of the usual variations on fraud of that sort. If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say that this one is a money mule scam, where the "employee" is asked to forward stolen money. Money comes in by direct bank transfer (fraudulent), and goes out via Western Union. It could be cheque fraud, though.

I received two copies of this spam, each with different (but similarly constructed) Gmail contact addresses.

Currency Exchange

This looks like an attempt to recruit unwitting volunteers into organised credit card fraud. One technique for turning stolen credit cards into hard cash is to set up a fake online shop, then conduct a large number of small fraudulent purchases on that shop with stolen credit card data. As is usually the case, the organisers behind this kind of crime prefer to hire some ignorant middle-man to handle most of the high-profile activity by which one might be traced. The middle-man has the task of forwarding on the ill-gotten gains in a less easily traced manner -- and liaising with the police when the fraud is eventually uncovered. In this case, there may be a direct tie-in with other "internet currency" services, but it's hard to be sure.

It's also possible that the entire point of this scam is the "test transactions" in the "training period". These could be used to directly defraud the "employee". Again, it's hard to be sure in advance. The modus operandi of the spammers suggests more sophistication than simple hit-and-run fraud, but it's a distinct possibility.

Multiple instances of this spam were received, all to fairly old email addresses which have long since been retired into service as spamtraps. In all cases, the "from" address was the same as the "to" address, and actual contact was requested through a Gmail account having a user name of ten or eleven random letters. The number of such random accounts appears to be quite large. The spams originated in South America: some from Brasil, some from Colombia.

I don't have a lot to say about this one -- it looks like cheque fraud. A Google search indicates that "Velso Estate Solutions" had a couple of Craigslist ads, which were subsequently removed.

Private Company Seeking (In-Home) Admin Assistants

This is a curious one. It's very clearly a well organised fraud, but I'm not sure how it works. The scammers want the victim to have a credit card (to receive funds from the company to purchase items), but it's not clear exactly how one is going to receive funds that way. I doubt that they're simply fishing for credit card numbers, although that's a possibility. If anyone has become involved in this scam, (a) get out of it -- quickly, and (b) tell us what happened.

This spam was sent to multiple spamtrap addresses under my control (either directly or indirectly). Each came "from" a random address with reply-to set to the same address. The originating IP addresses varied widely, suggesting that it was sent using a botnet. Several different email addresses were used (in the body of the message) as reply addresses, and they were all improperly encoded as HTTP links instead of email addresses.

Metals UK Limited

This spam originated at IP address, belonging to CTAccess, a broadband provider in Abuja, Nigeria. Need I say more? It's a scam -- probably cheque fraud. So far as I can tell, "Metals UK" is a real company (he provides a link to their website, and lists their address), and this Nigerian is an impostor pretending to represent them. Note that he uses a UK +4470 telephone number, which can be forwarded to any other phone number in the world.

Ken Allen Inc. Ltd

There are lots of "Ken Allens" in this world -- this one is a fake. The "from" address in the email used the domain name, which evidently belongs to "Ken Allen's Compton Buildings Limited", and has absolutely nothing to do with this scam. The scammer doesn't want you to reply to that address -- he wouldn't receive the mail. Instead, replies are to go to a anonymous free webmail account.

The scam itself appears to be cheque fraud: the scammer wants you to receive and bank fraudulent cheques, then forward money via Western Union.

Note the curious similarity between this scam and the Jason Wang Co. spam, recently received. Can you spot it? It's fairly obvious. Can you explain this similarity?

United Shipping Company Inc.

This is a reshipper scam. These scammers purchase goods on stolen credit cards, but operate out of a country with a bad reputation for such fraud, so that merchants will not deal with them. Instead, they use the identity and shipping address of the "employee", so that the fraud is not detected until after the goods have left the country. This is organised crime, and the "employee" can expect a visit from the police sooner or later, with all the awkwardness that implies.

BottonGost International Company

This is a reshipper scam. Credit card fraudsters want to purchase goods from merchants in your country using stolen credit card data, but they need the transaction to look less suspicious. They operate out of countries which are so well-known for credit card fraud that most merchants won't even deal with them, so they need reshippers to accept the goods locally and forward them overseas to avoid suspicion. The reshipper eventually gets a visit from the police because of all the fraud associated with that shipping address.

A Google search for "BottonGost" revealed an independent report of this scam, plus a curiously large number of links which have all gone 404 (page not available). The scammers are requesting replies to an email address in the "" domain, which appears to have been registered for the purposes of this scam.

This is a check fraud scam. The "employer" sends you forged checks which are of sufficiently high quality that the fraud won't be detected until after the check clears. Once the fraud is discovered, the bank will dishonour the check, leaving the "employee" considerably poorer, and possibly overdrawn.

Bolton Hotel New Zealand (impostors)

There is a real Bolton Hotel, New Zealand. For that, see

What we have here is a scammer pretending to be the Bolton Hotel. He's even created a fake website, and ripped off some text from the real deal.

   Expiration Date: 22-apr-2010

The fake website offers a large range of jobs, whereas the real Bolton Hotel website has no "job vacancies" section at all. This leads me to believe that the scam here is advance fee fraud. My scam archives contain a lot of hotel-related nob vacancy fraud of this sort (primarily in relation to Canadian hotels for some reason, but also England). The fraud usually goes like this: they have a wonderful live-in job for you at a luxurious hotel, but you need to pay some kind of working visa fee. There is no job, and the scammer pockets the fee.

That makes this scam fairly effective, because most people will search for the company name, and they'll get LOTS of hits -- but most of the ones which warn about this particular scam will be well down the list. This job offer is NOT from HeidelbergCement: it's just an impostor scammer using their identity as his cover story.

Note that the job requirements include "processing payments". The vast majority of all job scams are of this type. There are various ways in which scammers can either defraud you directly or use you to launder stolen money using this cover story. The job description doesn't make clear which particular method this scammer will use.

I've received eight of these spams to various accounts on two separate occasions (about a week apart). The sample shown here is from the latter occasion. I have not seen this scam reported widely: Fraud Watchers has the only known report at this time.

Internet scams are often international in scope: not only does the Internet facilitate international communication, but crossing national boundaries makes the fraudsters safer from law enforcement action. As a consequence of this, the fraudster doesn't always have English as a first language, even when the victim does. Scams are often identifiable by their broken English.

With that in mind, the following spammers would like you to help them with their English. There's nothing wrong with tidying up someone's English, but if you do it for a spammer, you're probably facilitating fraud at best. At worst, you're doing it for free, or maybe being paid with forged cheques. Steer clear of this.

This spam has been independently reported at Scam of the Day.

Anonymous job offer, contacts

This job offer doesn't identify itself with a company name, and the sender name/address is different each time. Furthermore, the contact address given in the spam varies also, but always has a "name+number" format. Based on  what little information is available here, I suspect that this is a check fraud scam: the scammer wants to send forged checks to the victim "employees" and have them send back money via Western Union.

I received two copies of this spam (to different addresses). It has also been reported elsewhere, but not widely.

TSM Group

This job description is terribly vague, but still specific enough to recognise as a money mule scam. Note, specifically, the duty to "administer day-to-day financial responsibilities for clients." This means receive payments and forward them. Specifically, it means to receive stolen or fraudulent payments and launder them or be defrauded yourself.

I note that my archives have one other instance of a "TSM". Related? Probably not in any direct way, but who knows?

I could find no other reports of this scam at the time I posted it, although a couple of mail archives also received the spam.

Jude Addison

I can't find this scam reported anywhere else, so I will post it here despite the fact that it's nearly a month old, just in case. This looks like a Nigerian scam for three reasons: the name "Jude Addison", the UK +4470 phone number (an absolute favourite with the West African scammers), and the use of an "Art Merchandise" cover story (check my archives for similar items). The job description is vague, but allows for several variations on the money mule scam. At a guess, though, he probably majors on cheque and money order forgery.

The name "Samuel Williams" is very much in the style of Nigerian scammers, as is the use of a textile company as the cover story. This guy wants you to receive fake cheques or money orders and send back real money via Western Union. He doesn't mention the fact that the cheques and money orders are forgeries, of course. On the contrary, he claims they're from someone else entirely.

EVS Logistics Company

This appears to be a reshipper scam. When international credit card fraudsters purchase something on a stolen card, they generally want the card owner and delivery address to be in the same country as the merchant, so the merchant doesn't get too suspicious. To this end, they hire reshippers to forward the fraudulently obtained goods out of the country. This is, of course, blatantly illegal.

The name "EVS Logistics Company" is just a cover story. These scammers do not represent any company, and any company name they use is just a smoke screen to make the job offer sound legitimate.

Few words about the job.

We pay for each 5 shipped out boxes

Project manager, EVS Logistics Company

Europe Consult

This offer pretends to be from careerbuilder, and some of the associated text is boilerplate used by the Gallup Organisation in their job ads. The scam itself appears to be a reshipper scam: fraudsters who purchase items using stolen credit cards need local people to receive the goods so that the merchants don't get too suspicious. Of course, when the fraud is discovered, the reshipper comes under sudden intense scrutiny from law enforcement, which can be rather unpleasant.

This scam has not been widely reported: a relevant search only finds one independent report. I'm not sure whether this means that it hasn't been widely circulated, or whether these scammers are VERY good at staying below the radar of most scam reporters.

    Alliance Asset Management

    The company name, "Alliance Asset Management" is almost completely irrelevant. If you do a search on a key phrase from the job summary, "basic tasks from your manager daily", you will see that exactly the same job ad has been sent over and over under different company names. That alone is conclusive proof of a scam: these guys aren't really associated with ANY of the company names they use.

    At a guess, the scam is check fraud. The USA is a common target for check fraud because the banking regulations make it easy to defraud people with forged checks.

    This appears to be a reshipper scam, targeted at the USA. Reshippers are hired by fraudsters who purchase expensive goods online using stolen credit cards: the fraudsters want the goods to be shipped locally so that the merchant doesn't get too suspicious. The reshipper then forwards the goods overseas -- until the police come and have words about all the credit card fraud traced to that address, of course.
