Anyone Heard of Denis Orkinson letalkcg@gmail.com???

I'm sorry to be missing in action lately. Here's a new twist. As you know, and probably some of you already know, I've been in the job market. Trying first with such ridiculous companys like Career Networks for positions that never existed and served as a way of marketing ways by email and cell phone to further my education.

Today I received a unique email from a person by the name of Denis Orkinson with an email address of letalkcg@gmail.com. He sent me the following email:

Hello.

We are sorry for the late reply. Are you still interested in a part time position? Please reply with your full name and phone number and I will contact you immediately with position details. Do not forget to attach your latest resume or CV.

Us residents please.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.


Seems very obscure if you ask me. Sort of like a way for someone to ask me for personal information like a telephone number, name, and a full resume as well. Something I think prior employers I applied with would already have.

Plus that seemingly fake email address made me suspicious. Anyone get an email from this alleged person like I did? If so, did you reply? Anything good come from it?

Please post any and all comments.

Thank you for stopping by. I will do my best to include regular updates on the blog now as well. I realize I have been missing in action for a while now.

Hope all of you are doing well. Have a great evening!!

I got the samething today. I mean exact email, and same address. But it says it was maild by: mail-ew0-f174.google.com. It sounds like a mass scam. Worst part is that I actually opened it with the subject line "hello, how are you doing?" in all lower... I typed in his name on google and I found this blog. My recommendation is we're better off with out him.

I actually recieved the same email as well on Wed.& too googled his email and name and found this blog. To me it sounds a bit suspicious as a company following up would include their company info as well as position they're hiring for. Sounds like a scam to me!

I got an e-mail from Denis and I don't think I want to join this company either. He mentioned collecting payments for him from customers out here and using western union. I almost got scammed earlier this year by some canadians who sent me a check and told me I could be a mystery shopper. They also told me to use western union. I vote NO on this one.-Christy Wheelock

I got the same email (& I do mean exact)last week from a 'Robert Malooza. He wanted the 411 & my resume for a part-time job. It sounded strange; so I checked him out on linkedin.com.

Got the same email today but from Rangarajan Amar with a contact email of rengiforest@gmail.com saying the exact same thing. It's totally a scam, as I'm in the UK and have the exact same email as people in the US. Just another example of horrible people preying on jobseekers to scam them out of money. Horrible. - Becci

I just checked my email and i got an email from Kami Andreu "kamiandreu304@hotmail.com offering a part time job and asking to send him my details to brunoheres@gmail.com. It sounded suspiscious to me, so i decided to google it. I was right, it is a scam.

I also got an email from Gorge Aceto "gorgeaceto5462@hotmail.com a week ago but didn´t reply either. This is the email sent:

My mail was similiar:

From: Dennis Pilcher ptudardenspilchergij@live.com)

Tells you to respond to a gmail address.

Now, I'm just trying to understand what they're after here besides seemingly cheap labor? After 2 weeks of work you get to "ask for payment". Seems like they could get a never-ending supply of workers for no cost while doing some worthwhile research for retail companies.

How are they trying to con people out of the money here?
