Current Status

This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.


Payment Processing Job Scam:

I hate these. This is what phishers do with the left hand while the right hand is trying to con someone out of their password. "Job offers" like these are bogus, but in a highly deceptive way: you start receiving "payments" as promised, but what your "employers" fail to mention is that the money is stolen (as a result of phishing). You wind up engaged in money laundering -- until the local authorities come knocking on your door and tell you about it, that is.

This particular spam was received from on Tue, 15 Mar 2005 06:51:06 -0000. It consists of a single GIF graphics image, which I can't upload to this blogging service. It is, however, substantially identical to one that's already been reported elsewhere, so no matter.
