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.


Info: Swiss Invest and Mercury Industries Job Scams still active

I'm still receiving the same old dubious recruitment offers from both Swiss Invest (six spams) and Mercury Industries (thirteen spams). They still occupy the domain names "" (".cn" is the country code for China, by the way) and "". Steer well clear of these scams, since they invariably involve money laundering or other forms of fraud. The recruiters are looking for victims, not employees.

Update on 2006-06-05. I haven't seen so many Mercury Industries spams anymore, but Swiss Invest is still hammering away at it quite broadly, and has taken the lead in terms of quantity. The scam appears to be targeting Australians primarily, and the state government of Western Australia has released a consumer protection alert about it.
