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:

This is another money laundering job, thinly veiled by a couple of other job descriptions which are just red herrings. The crooks offering this work have obviously done a spot of phishing in relation to Commonwealth Bank of Australia and National Australia Bank customers, and are now looking for willing chumps to forward the money to them via Western Union or Money Gram -- right up until they get arrested for handling stolen money, that is.

The contact address for this spam is, but it's not visible in the plain text rendition of the spam that I'm using here. (It's a hyperlink in the HTML version.)
