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.


Job Scam/Hijack Alert:

These are often nasty, and this appears to be no exception to that general rule. Job scams of this kind are usually involve becoming an easily-traced money launderer for a bunch of much less easily-traced phishers. They always fail to mention that the job is likely to get you on the wrong side of local law enforcement. Anyhow, in this case, it looks like their web site is attempting to do something actively malicious, so it doesn't matter whether you accept the job or not -- so long as you go visit their website with an appropriately vulnerable version of Internet Explorer, they will be able to take control of your computer. Well, that's the usual story -- I haven't checked out the specifics of this case because the Javascript is heavily obfuscated and I don't have the time to unscramble it right now. I may update later if I get the time to work on it.

The spam was received from (WHOIS: BG Broadband Networks India Pvt. Ltd, Cable Internet Service Provider, Surat, India.) on Thu, 9 Jun 2005 20:50:25 -0000. It was sent to the same ".au" address that seems to attract all my job scam spam.
