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: Advertising International Company

Like the FIAS job scam last month, these otherwise ordinary job scammers seem to have compromised someone else's domain and web-hosting facilities. Just like last time, the compromised site is a church/charity type operation. Is this a targeted attack, or do charitable operations just usually have bad passwords? Whatever the case, the spam arrived from on Mon, 19 Sep 2005 17:40:49 -0000, and the linked domain, "" (link removed in text below), appears to be an innocent but compromised third party.

Sorry to hear you got sucked in. Freezing accounts like this is pretty standard practice when people note that money has been transferred in without proper authorisation. I hope the freezing of your account doesn't prove too problematic for you -- it may take a while to sort out. You may want to get legal advice on this matter, and you should definitely cooperate with the bank and police to get it sorted out.
