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: Nations

This is the usual "we need you to handle money for us" job scam, but it plays the sympathy card rather than (or as well as) the avarice card: the vacancy is supposed to be at a charitable organisation that funds operations for children with cancer. I'm not going to bother checking whether there is a real organisation fitting the description given in this message: it hardly matters one way or the other. They have a nicely-produced (but unconvincing if you've seen this scam played a hundred times already) web site which includes the job ad. Accepting the job simply means that stolen money is transferred into your account, and you send it overseas to the thieves via Western Union until the local authorities come knocking on your door and ask about all the stolen money in your account.
