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: world-and-countries.com

This looks like the usual money laundering scam. Who knows -- there may be some new twists on it, but I suspect applicants will find it involves receiving direct transfers into their account, then sending it overseas via Western Union -- also known as money laundering. It's not a job offer, it's an invitation to get your collar felt by the police.

Thanks so much for giving this scam a little publicity.

I am Ron Mears, the owner and publisher of www.worldcountries.info --- the site from which world-and-countries.com has been illegally cloned.

These same people are also publishing the stolen content at www.bestworldcountries.com.

Besides the shock of seeing all my hard work stolen, code by code, right down to the last .css class, the real bummer was that they are sitll using my name on their mission statement pages --- possibly implicating me in this criminal endeavor.

Thanks again.
