    Thanks for the info! I saw this in my spam and thought it sounded way too good to be true. When I Googled the name of the business in quotes, your article was the ONLY thing that came up. As if it weren’t fishy enough, they don’t even have a website? What a crock. I do have a question, though. Why would they ask for my information? What does a scam like this try to do with it?

    Thanks for being the only person to warn me!

    Jessica – glad you were able to find this alert. There are SO many scams going. If you ever receive other emails that seem a bit “too good to be true” I’d love if you’d share them with me so I can pass them on to other readers.

    I’ve not gone through with the process on this but if I were a betting person, I’d bet this was another variation of the check fraud scam with a technological twist.

  3. James says:

    I just got a similarly worded email. Yeah, thank god I’m not thick and i know when a scam Email is a scam email.

    Just thought I’d Google the company name anyway though to find out if it’s actually a company and see who else had got this.

  4. Helen Gomes says:

    I just received a similar email. Thank you for warning me! I had recently applied for a job on gumtree for a similar job but the guy sent the cheque to my address and i thought it was dodgy so I took it to the bank who confirmed that it was in fact a stolen cheque book and I could have got into trouble if I had cashed it!! I’m very weary of any job offers now!! Thank you again!!

  5. Gayla says:

    @ James – I do feel bad for the people that hope with all hopes that the offer is valid. I’ve actually known a couple who have bought into the scams. That’s why I’m trying to do my part in helping them avoid those scams.

    @ Helen – Glad you found out before you got in too deep. Stolen checkbook too? Wow. I’m always amazed at just how far these scams actually go.

  6. Poppy Lane says:

    Thanks for the heads up! I received this email today too and didn’t believe it for a second.

    Thanks

    Hi, I also received tbis email, and just the first sentence seemed odd as it said they saw my cv in monster.com and then went on to ask me for my details!

    I web-searched the name of the company and this was the first site that it came up with.

    Thanks for sharing this information. Times are hard enough on us as it is.

  9. dane says:

    i sent information but if got a message from hotmail saying deliverys status failed… i hope that means they didnt get any of the information i sent over :(???????????

  10. Jimr says:

    I just received this mail too and it was obviously a scam, they even used 3 spellings of the same company name.

    Anyway I thought I should ask if anybody had considered that this is not so much a scam as being some kind of money laundering scheme. Maybe people are signing up and getting paid but they are unwittingly processing payments for criminal organisations that are covering their tracks?
