I really like these employment scams and the way they try to recruit money mules. It seems that my name was chosen from a list of reliable list of people, they then go on to ask for my Email address? My name? My state? I don’t even live in the states…
Sounds like a great job from a reliable employer doesn’t it!!!

    I would like to apologise on behalf of Gainsborough Silk for the misrepresentations made. We onviously have no connection whatsoever with the above offers for employment and have been unable to trace any of the illegal activities. We have forwarded the information and the contact details of the people affected by the scam to both the british police and the FBI. We have received no feedback from either but can only assume that they are investigating the scams. I would like your users to understand that it not only affects those who succumb to the offers and have their fingers burnt but also the innocent companies like ours that receive bad publicity as a result of someone else abusing and using our global brand name.

  14. gariell says:

    Simon.

    Thank you for putting things straight and it is sad that the bottom feeders have used your company’s name in vain. We try to stay neutral as much as possible and only report potential frauds. Glad to hear that the authorities have been informed of the situation and let’s hope for a good out come.

    Cheers
    Gariell
