I haven’t seen one of these employment scams for a while. It can involve a number of scams all combined into one. The first involving a Money Mule scheme where fraudsters recruit people to launder funds that were obtained illegally usually via Identity theft.

In this case the bottom feeders may be trying to get your identity at the same time for future use. Real bad stuff.

Remember, any email addressed to “undisclosed recipients” is usually bad news. Why would some guy spam our email boxes with a “job” offer? Seems to me that an international company would not opperate this way! Folks it’s a scam and don’t
fall for this bottom feeder crap.

Hello dear,

My name is Owen Geven, a designer and also the Manager of Owen Geven Fabric and Consultant and I live and work here in United Kingdom, Would you like to work online from home and get paid without affecting your present job?

Actually I need a representative who can be working for the company as online book-keeper. We make lots of supplies to some of our clients in the USA/CANADA/EUROPE, for which I do come to USA/CANADA/EUROPE to receive payment and have it cashed after I supply them raw materials. It’s always too expensive and stressful for me to come down and receive such payment twice in a month so I therefore decided to contact you.

I am willing to pay you 10% for every payment receives by you from our clients who make payment through you.

Please note you don’t have to be a book keeper to apply for the job.

Kindly get back to me as soon as possible if you are interested in this job offer with the following details:

FULL NAMES……………….
ADDRESS (not p.o.box)…
PROOF OF ADDRESS (UTILITY BILL)
PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION (DRIVERS LICENCE OR INERNATIONAL PASSPORT)
STATE………………

COUNTRY…………….
PHONE NUMBER(S)……..
GENDER……………..
AGE………………..
OCCUPATION………….

Yours Faithfully,
Owen Geven

    I learned a lot from this post. This e-mail looks very legit, if someone did not know it was a fake it could be considered very real. Identity theft is a subject that should constantly be on every ones mind.
