Comments Back To Anonymous About Job Email Scams

Here's a posted comment to my blog recently from "anonymous" that I felt should be addressed.

And I quote from the individual:


His comment is verbatim above, typo, capital letter text and all.

To reply to him effectively I'd like to say that the job offers I document are scams. You don't have to lose money to be scammed in my viewpoint.

You can lose your identity or be a victim of someone getting the information you post applying for a fake job.

You can simply lose private information about your home address, phone number, college education, military service, work experience, and likely more by just filling out one of the bogus emailed job applications you'll receive when you express an interest.

Even if I did lose money on a job email scam (not the point here) I don't think I'd want to just post "Hey I lost two thousand dollars in a scam."

I'd rather post information to people to be careful so hopefully nobody loses money replying to some of these job offers that I and others tend to receive while looking for work online.

And it's not "what a scam someone is" as pointed out by the anonymous commentary in the blog entries I written. It's what a scam these job offers are that I receive by email.

There's a difference if you ask me.

The names of the people offering jobs are fake.

The companies in my view are fake.

The emails scream fake with ridiculous names and job titles tied to google email accounts.

(With all due respect to Wobbits Incorporated which deserves a fair look again to me since they do have a website and a supposedly legit telephone number to contact them.)

What do you think?

Anyone else have comments to defend "anonymous" above one way or the other? The purpose of my blog is to freely exchange information even if everyone doesn't agree with what I have to say.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!!

Vacuum Systems LTD Is Another Job Scam!!!

I still do need to post a comment back on the job scam offer emails I receive in my in box and certainly owe an explanation of sorts to "anonymous" who recently took me to task about the scams I receive in my email.

And for you Thomas, this entry is nothing related to your questions. I will try my best to give you my opinion tonight on your questions about Wobbits Incorporated.

You asked some fair and honest questions I will work on again, in my opinion only.

But before I do any other responses, case in point of a true scam in my view.

Look at the details of the email below. The note comes from a person supposedly by the name of "Lefty Rediger" emailed to my account at 3:47 a.m.

The name appears almost 100% false. There's no way this name exists anywhere.

Look at the details below please.

The company is called Vacuum Systems LTD and is supposedly a job offer in the USA.

Google search it.

Nothing showing up as a company when you search "Vacuum Systems LTD".

Employment is part time at a rate of "$3,500.00 month + percents system" as shown verbatim below with the contents of the email.

Sounds like most excellent money huh?

Wow sign me up huh? NOT!!

Although it rings of scam, I haven't been a victim of a scam on any job offers.

I haven't lost money but I certainly don't want others to lose money either without having an opportunity to have another set of eyes give a view on scams.

And gee whiz, don't you think you'd want to question the intents of an email like this before disclosing full information that can be likely used to steal your identity like work history, phone number, mailing addresses, colleges attended and the like. That's likely a lot of the information you'd include on a resume and part of that just rings of opportunity for having credit cards mailed to other locations and a wealth of crime to take place with your name attached to it.

Sure, respond to an email and inquire to the email address of "" if you wish. I'd think a legitimate company would have a more valid address than something this ridiculous. It doesn't even match the name of the person supposedly sending the email.

You don't have to buy into a scam to lose money and then be "had". You can expose these emails and scams for 100% exactly what they are.

I've invited legit companies posted here to respond to me via email on what the company is, the job is about, how someone makes money with the company, and all I receive back from some (if they reply at all) is to complete the application to be considered for the position.

Nobody at these companies address the concerns I have over whether the company is legitimate. I'm probably just wasting their time and they'd much rather move onto the less informed individuals.

Am I wrong for standing up for what I believe is fraud?

Absolutely not.

I do moderate comments but I welcome anyone to defend these shady practices if you choose to place a comment on the blog. I would appreciate you telling me why what I do is wrong.

Be careful everyone. Your livelihood depends on you being cautious.

Here's the full text and email as I received it in quote marks:

"Lefty Rediger

Responding To Email Job Scam Offers Of Employment

Lisa and a couple of other people have posted comments about the blog regarding email scams for job opportunities.

Lisa asked if I had called the number for additional information. I have to say I haven't actually called the number for more information because I would not want my telephone number available to the person on the other end if they have caller id or another method of tracking incoming personal telephone calls.

My oldest sister had her identity stolen about five years ago and it took her three years to get her credit straightened out again after the FBI supposedly caught the people that were assuming her identity.

With a phone number, you have a reverse look up providing you a name and address, then you have internet services that will gladly give you lots of personal information about you for a small price. I just would rather remain anonymous and copy and paste verbatim emails of what I 100% sure know to be a scam.

It is my hope that others will realize what is going on and not fall prey to such emails and become a victim. I don't want to give these frauds any more information to go on than a google search shows a blog, any blog that seeks to discredit the intentions of a job that sounds too good to be true.

Also, I had my other blog showing the hightlights and commentary about the companies but unfortunately when I created this blog, the comments didn't follow over here.

I'm the same author as the other blog but I decided after being shown in my blog patrol stats as visted by a Russian county that it is likely the scammers might be on to my methods. I felt I should change my name, and erase what originally was my first initial and last name on the blog entries I posted.

Now I'm just as anonymous as the scammers but I'm doing it with a legitimate mission.

I do hope that makes sense for the change of tone and the copy/paste function on some of the job scams I had been receiving by email on a regular basis.

I don't think I've seen my last email with a job scam in it so I'll do my best to continue to get the word out about any other emails I receive.

I'd welcome any and all commentary on this blog as well. I do have it set to be approved before posting to keep spammers out but I do welcome others to take part and say things to be heard about job email scams.

Have a great week!!

Prime Insurance Is A Scam

I had such a great response for the previous job's yet another one that is very very very suspect. Be careful out there!!

Notice the typos in the email as well even though I copied it verbatim in quotes as I received it by email tonight.

"Lamar Shuttic to me

Phone: (925) 237-9566 , Fax +(1) 520-844-0888
We value your response back regarding the open vacancy Prime Insurance is offering. We're currently seeking motivated and responsible individuals to attend the post of a 'Work at home Money Transfer Assitant'. This remote position itself covers a broad range of directions an individual would have to perform. It's a part time position, which let's you perform your duties directly from your home location. In the nearest future, we're planning to achieve the expansion of our company throughout the United States of America and United Kingdom, providing local offices and departments in the vast areas, where logistic and insurance services are definitely in demand. Until then, we're trying to fill in our personnel with new individuals, which will increase the efficiency of the services we're catering. If you wish to apply or have any questions regarding the position, feel free to contact me back either via e-mail. Hope to hear from you soon.
In order to reduce the corporate overhead, we've implemented the thrift solution of disseminating bases of control over certain regions of the United States of America. It provides a great opportunity for beginners to participate in the standard operations of the future subsidiary departments. Besides the expansion project, the upcoming regional accountants are expected to learn a great deal about different realms of the insurance market mainly through digesting the experience gained from the large scale practical assignments.
1) This is part time work at home position and can easily combine this vacancy with other work.
2) Your fixed salary is $2000 a month + 5% from each payment processed by you.
3) You will receive payments (Direct Bank Deposits and wire transfers) from client within United States and send it by instant payment sistem such as Western Union. You will receive 10% of processed amount.
4) You do not spend your own money and there are no startup fees. All charges for withdrawal or transferring the money will be deducted from the payment.
5) To start work with us you must only have basic checking account at any bank. Your financial information will never be disclosed to third parties.
6) You can work 1-3 hours per day or fulltime.
7) This is not insurance sales position and you don't need to sell insurance, this is Money Transfer Assistant vacancy.
8) Your education and status don't matter.
9) We do not ask any personal information and we run business according to laws of the United States of America.
Now I'll explain the details of this job.
1. An ACH or Wire transfer will be made to your bank account from our client. I'll let you know it's exact transfer amount and date.
2. You should receive the transfer and send me the confirmation that you've received it. Then you'll have to cash out this transfer at your bank.
3. Then you'll have to sent the money you took from you bank account via Western Union. I'll let you know all the necessary information on this transfer(the name of person who will receive the money and destination city/country).
4. Then you should send an email to me to confirm the Western Union transfer is sent. This email should include sender's name, name of the city the transfer has been sent from, exact Western Union transfer amount, and Western Union MTCN (it's essential for receiving the money).
5. We communicate with our agents mainly by e-mail, but we will also communicate by phone (if your e-mail is not available). It is your responsibility to check your e-mail daily and inform us about any change in your contact information. Supporting communication is your top-priority obligation.
6. The fixed monthly salary which is $2000 will be sent to you by direct deposit after 30 days period from first transfer.
Let's see how it works. For example, $1000 have been transferred to your account. The amount you'll receive for each transfer is 5% from the initial payment to your bank account. 5% from $1000 is $50 so you'll have to send $950 via Western Union. Western Union fee(it's about $50) should be deducted from $950.
Please ask me with more questions or just let me know you're ready to get started.
We do not need access to your bank accounts. This is information that you can see at any check and only let us to send ACH and Wire transfers to this accounts.
Note: Actions depicted below, are authorized by Prime Insurance Company, and therefore sustain legitimacy status. Our venerable organization doesn't condone or incite improper or out of border incentives, which may contradict to federal law.
Shall you have any enquiries, don't hesitate to contact our support department at . We're looking forward to our further communication.
Julie Mathews. HR department."

That's it verbatim. It's quite stupid if you ask me. I wish I could put a filter in my google account to keep these out completely.

Any comments are welcome!!

Update to KES Incorporated

On a whim, I emailed back Mary Jones and told her I was unemployed and had lots of money to live on while I searched for new work. (Hey, this is the internet mind you.)

So I asked what is involved in working for KES Incorporated and she emailed me back the following email and a word document I'm bolding below.

I don't want to divulge too much information to them so I'm a victim too you know?

Hey this is the blog author talking again. I must rest a migraine but I will return soon. Please help or suggest any comments, these will also be posted provided they are related to this particular topic.

What is Wobbits Service? A Scam?

I didn't hear back from the KES scam yet so I figure they have moved onward to less informed individuals. Like others that comment, I can't help but wonder if somewhere my secure resume is creating offers like the one I received this morning in my email box. It's from a new company but still sounds 100% like another scam to me.

I haven't found anything about the company really, but it sure sounds questionable to me. I'm not sure how to respond to someone like this so I've decided just to copy and paste and serve as a small scale scam warning type of guy and move on to more interesting things in my life. See what you think:



Wobbits Service is currently hiring for the position of Mailing Assistant. If you feel that you are a self-motivated and career-oriented person, we highly encourage you to spare a minute and learn more about our current openings.
Primary job requirements:

* Basic knowledge of the computer
* Ability to print and scan documents
* Knowledge of such programs as Adobe Acrobat Reader and Microsoft Office
* Ability to pick up packages weighing up to 30lbs. If you believe that you can meet these basic job requirements and are interested in joining our company as a well-paid Mailing Assistant, please to Our Human Resources Manager will contact you within the following 24-48 hours.
Best Regards,
Andrew Garcia
Wobbits Service HR Department"

So that is the new one. In these days of identity theft, how much other information could someone obtain from an online job service. I figure much more than I'd think if they had your name, address, telephone number, prior employers and the like.

I can just see a scam contacting a previous company I worked for on my resume asking to verify my social security number or direct deposit account numbers so they can make sure they had it correctly listed.

Sure, here's a role play from fake company to a prior employer.

"You know this guy XXXX XXXXX we just hired made an error on his direct deposit slip or W-2 form where he must not have given us the right social security number. Can you help share with us what it is? We've tried to call him on his phone numbers listed but haven't been able to reach him."

I'd almost think an HR company would think they are doing a great favor for a new employee by giving out that sort of information.

What do you think?

More's a cloudy, wet, and windy day at home. I'm going to go back and curl up with extra blankets now.

Applied For KES Enterprise Job Opportunity

Hey there for those who don't know...I have a new identity as a way of uncovering more bogus information from KES Enterprises. I applied for the position using a very made up address and telephone number with an extra digit included. It's a basic application shown below that I received and filled out today.

It might sound stupid or crazy and maybe it is.

If I hear back from them, I will let you know. I purposely put some information that could no way to be accurate to determine if they are really insane for scamming or I'm the crazy one.

It's still a fraud. If I hear any more on it, or someone comes to defend this company, I will retract any commentary or at least let that voice be heard. In the mean time, please be careful everyone!!

Email Scams Blog Has A New Home

I am opening this blog separate from my other account to copy and paste scam emails for jobs I've encountered since becoming unemployed myself.

The other blog started to get to difficult and boring with job information scattered among entries about my life.

Trust me, I'm the same author for both but decided to move the blog with scams to this blog and keep the other one for what it used to be.

Welcome to this one and for those who visited the other one, welcome back to the world of your humble host.

More entries soon.

Thanks for stopping by!!
