419 Scam

This email came from feliciajohnson000000@gmail.com.




MISS FELICIA JOHNSON


AUDITOR GENERAL

DEAR,

RE: TRANSFER OF US$15.200.000 00 MILLION TO YOUR ACCOUNT.

I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business.



Though this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest medium of communication.


However, this correspondence is private, and it should be treated in strict confidence.


At first I will like to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and trouble free to both parties, In order to transfer out
FIFTEEN MILLION TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS, (US$15.200 000 00) from our bank here in Burkina Faso The fund for transfer is of clean origin.

The owner of the fund is a foreigner, a program leader who was believed to acquire the fund through his secret Crude Oil deal with the Former IRAQ government.

The deceased died with all the members of his family in an auto-accident in June 23, 2001 without a WILL.



The amount involved is US$15,200,000.00 and I want to transfer this money into your account as the foreign beneficiary of the fund.

I know that this letter will come to you as a  surprise as we don't know ourselves before, BUT BE SURE THAT IT IS REAL AND A GENUINE BUSINESS.


I CONTACT YOU BELIEVING THAT YOU WILL NOT LET ME DOWN ONCE THE FUND GOES INTO YOUR ACCOUNT.




Let me hear from you. 



Regards



Felicia



Scam Job Offer

Yesterday I received an email from mariele.carrilho@ig.com.br and the Reply-To address was highunter_1@hotmail.com. This probably means that the mariele.carrilho address was highjacked. This has happened to myself and several other people I know. The red flags in this email are the amount that they are claiming to pay. $1,800 for 10-12 hours a week, I did the math and that would be over $37 an hour. Not bad for a position that doesn't require any type of college education. Also, the fact that they will not say where they found my resume. They also claim to take care of all your taxes. If it sounds too good to be true then it is.

Fake American Express e-mail

This is a fake American Express email that I received. This is one of the smarter looking emails I have received. It shows that its from AmericanExpress@welcome.aexp.com and when you click to reply to the email that is who it replies to. However legit emails from American Express address you by your full name and not "American Express cardholder". I am not 100% sure HOWEVER aside from the "Click here to get started" link in this email the other links appear to be legit. I do not recommend clicking on them though. When I clicked on the "Click here to get started" link it took me to a free website that had been locked out. Do not be fooled by this email.

419 Scam

So this is what you call a lottery scam. Its when scammers send out emails saying that they are from a lottery commission and that you have won a whole bunch of money. Once you contact them they say that there will be a fee involved for you to get your money. They even placed a couple of legit links in the email to make it really look like they are legit. I will take out the links since they are from a legit company. This email tries to fool you and make it look like it was sent from admin@national-lottery.co.uk which is a legit email. However, it is really sent from Mgoodnews1D@lily.ocn.ne.jp and the reply to email is wsters@e-mail.ua.

Temporary Agencies

For the avid readers of my blog you know how much I dislike temp agencies. From their deceptive advertising on job board to their attitudes. My fiance has been looking for a job for several months she tries to stay away from temp agencies but some of the postings that these agencies make are very deceptive. They act like they are the client company so people will apply. Then once they receive resumes they call people up and get them in for an interview. Then they will most likely tell you that the position they posted was already "filled" but they have other stuff available. The stuff that they have available is nothing like what you originally applied for. This is just one big scam for these recruiters to meet their quota.

The receptionists that work for these agencies are usually bottom of the barrel people. They are trained to say that these recruiters "just stepped out" when people who have met with them before are checking in trying to get some work. I got a temp job through an agency once and when I called to speak with my recruiter you wouldn't believe the amount of screening questions this receptionist asked me. Then when I looked up this place on the web it turns out that they were asking all these questions for a reason. For people that they are not able to find a job for the recruiters are always not available. I guess if you have a current assignment they are able to speak with you. If you don't they don't want anything to do with you.

My experience with temp agencies went all the way back to 2004. I worked for this company trying to get my foot in the door called Pomerantz Staffing (now called CoWorx Staffing). I will admit, this temp agency did find me an assignment fast. It was in a plastics manufacturing facility.

Now the recruiters will probably say that its the job market right now that's bad. However, when you positions on job boards that were filled and try to get people to sign up with you anyways that's really shitty. People are out there looking for jobs and have better things to do then fill out a 10 page application for a temp agency that most likely will not help them out. From what I am told TPI Staffing Group is like that. I heard that Masiello Employment Group is good but from my first hand experience with them they were useless.

The Leddy Group is complete crap. I applied for a position back in 2007 for a company called Centronics. I was contacted by Leddy Group saying that the company uses them to hire so I had to go through them if I wanted the position. I went in for an interview and they put me through all this qualification crap. Then I went back and they told me that they were going to put me on board with them and help me find a job. They said that Centronics wants people with experience so basically there was a good chance that they wouldn't hire me. The Leddy Group would call me almost daily with new opportunities. First off, I specifically asked for temp to hire. All of the jobs that they called me about were only temp. They would get mad at me if I denied an assignment even though they were calling me for jobs that I clearly did not want. I finally had enough of them so I told them I was no longer in the market.

The worst temp agency I ever dealt with was Balance Staffing located in Salem NH. I applied for a job on Craigslist and got a call from them. They said that this position was beginning immediately and it was a temp-hire job. So I went in for an interview the same day. I get there and I am waiting in the waiting room for the recruiter to come and get me. I am sitting there and all of a sudden I hear this worker slam the phone down and yell out "WHAT THE FUCK"! She starts bitching about a person looking for a job keeps calling her up. Then another person calls in and the recruiter who I am going to be speaking with tells her that there is nothing available for her at the time. She gets off the phone with her and starts talking shit about her with everyone. Saying that she's fed up with her because she keeps calling in even though she failed a drug test and that places can't use her because of her intellectual skills. Clearly I wanted nothing to do with this place so I never followed up with them on this job.

All in all temp agencies are nothing but a waste of time. Unless you want these 1-2 week assignments stay away from them. The unprofessionalism of these places is unbelievable. The deception that these recruiters use just so they can meet their quota is horrible.

419 Scam

Now I thought that these 419 scammers have gotten smarter when it comes to asking for a fee? A lot of the times they will not ask you for a fee until you have gained their trust. Well this person gets straight to the point.......



 Your Attention Is Needed!

The United States Postal Service

First off I would like to point out that this post does NOT apply to all USPS workers. There are some (including my mail lady) workers that are terrific and go the extra miles to help you out. However, many of them simply do not care!

The USPS overpays their employees for what? To get horrible customer service? Half the time mail gets lost in the shuffle. Then when you go to your local post office to ask about it they are rude and tell you that they can't do anything about it. Then if your mail gets damaged they put it in this plastic bag with the words "Because we care", its more like "Because we don't give a shit".

I didn't realize how bad the post office was until I moved out to Jaffrey NH for over a year. My mail was always getting lost and I was always getting my neighbors mail. Its amazing because Jaffrey is such a small town (about 7,500 people) so you would think that the mail service would be better. Packages would come from California within 2 days but sometimes it would take 2 weeks.

I had to go to that post office all the time to find out about lost mail. There was this one guy there who was a complete asshole. He wouldn't even greet you when you came up to the counter. I would bring up slips from my PO Box that I had a package to be picked up. The first time I brought it up to the counter I gave it to the guy and he let out a sigh and said very rudely "WHICH NUMBER"? As if I am suppose to know you need to say it before they need to ask you.

Another time when it took almost 2 weeks to receive a priority mail flat rate box I went up to the counter to ask about the package. It was the same asshole who tells me that they are not responsible for it. If they aren't responsible who the fuck is? I was happy that it at least finally came! With priority mail you pay for your package to be delivered within 3-5 days. Of course though the post office always says that they cannot guarantee delivery within that time frame. I have also paid for next day delivery which never happened either. So I had wasted all this money when I could have just paid for standard shipping and received it at the same time.

No wonder why the post office is in so much debt. No one uses them anymore when whenever possible. I pay most of my bills online cause I know that they will get my payments. I do thank the postal workers that do work hard though. They are few and far between but at least there are some.

Fake Sprint e-mail

This is a FAKE Sprint e-mail. All of the links in it are phishing for information. As you can see this looks real and it will fool a lot of unsuspecting victims.

419 Scam

The other day I received this 419 scam email that is suppose to be for a job opportunity with Ferguson Plumbing Supplies Company. This is a real big legit company but obviously it is not really from them. This is what a lot of these scammers do. They send out emails pretending to be from a legit company so you agree to work for them. The way it usually works is they will send you a check for a certain amount. You then deposit the check into your bank account and you are required to take out a certain amount and send it to someone through Western Union. The check you put in your bank account looks real and it even clears the next day usually. However, once it is discovered to be fraudulent you will be responsible to repaying the bank that money. The address at the top of this email does not appear to be a real Ferguson address even though they have a location in this city. THIS EMAIL IS NOT FROM FERGUSON PLUMBING SUPPLIES COMPANY.

419 Scam

Dear Beloved ,

Greetings in the name of God, Please let this not sound strange to you for my only surviving lawyer who would have done this died early this year. I prayed and got your email id from your country's guest book which I have been with my late husband and liked to visit once more if God will in his Infinite mercies.


I am Mrs. Maria Morgan From London 58 years old, am suffering from a long Time cancer of the lungs which also affected my brain, from all indication my Conditions is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that, according to My doctors they have advised me that I may not live for the next two months, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.I was brought up from a motherless babies home was married to my late husband For twenty years without a child, my husband died in a fatal motor accident before his death we were true Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all my inherited belongings and deposited all the sum of (10 Million dollars) with a First Inland Bank.


Presently, this money is still with them and the management just wrote me as the true owner to come forward to receive the money for keeping it so long or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf since I can not come over because of my illness or they get it confiscated. Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital in Switzerland where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs.My doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see that this money is invested to any organization of your choice and distributed each year among the charity organization, the poor and the motherless babys home. I want you as God fearing person, to also use this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows, I took this decision, before I rest in peace because my time will so on be up.


As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the First Inland Bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of my fund. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. You are requested to send to me the following information to enable me use it to write a Letter of Authorization on your behalf to the bank so that they will release the money to you as my new next of kin.
