Job Hiring Scams: I got this email
myself. It was an offer of a part time job in Australia. It changed
to working from home in the US instead when I answered. That was a
good clue that this is a hoax/ scam to take me...
Most of these want you to act as
a third party representative by putting scammed payments into your
bank account. You are supposedly paid a commission. In the past what
happens is that they have you put the money in your own account.
Work you for a couple of days or even a week, then drain your
whole account. You have taken money that the scammers have
bilked from others, put it in your account and given them access to
take the money when they can.
In the end you are in trouble financially and legally, because the
illegal money can be traced to you. They wanted YOU to take it so
that the person they were scamming would think that they had a trail
that could be followed to the end. In the end both of you are bilked
only you may face lawyer fees to prove you were not involved in the
Analysis: Simple hoax letter. Poorly written and much more
legitimate sounding than most.
