Scambusters, Preventing Internet Scams & Phishing Attempts

This blog is dedicated to help preventing internet fraud and internet scams. Scambusters was a radio show I started in Albany Oregon, but due to defaulted payment by the radio station we took the show offline. Regardless of this issue we still wish to help prevent internet fraud and save people from internet loss. I have been interviewed and featured in various publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times & Daily News, The London Times & AARP Newsletters. Please watch this blog for latest tips and tricks and scams to avoid.

Thanks guys! I just received this email and I was trying to figure out whether it was a valid offer for employment. Employment is tough nowadays so i'm sure that anyone that has been unemployed for any length of time is evaluating all valid offers.
Here is a copy of the email that I received:

Position available - ID / (C13110865764661C5303FV87662).

Thanks, just got the MondiTreo emaila and it looked like a fraud. I also received an email from "Wood UMS AG" with a Vienna office address. Googled them and found nothing so in the trash it went.

I received the same email regarding the position name "Correspondence Manager". Thanks for posting the SCAM info. Saved me a lot of wasted time. Much appreciated.

'Candidate must be US citizen' was the other kind of blatant giveaway- not to mention the company is supposedly in Austria, and says to 'apply today on' an *email address that ends 'contractor.net'- which is some kind of lame link farm.
