Customer Service Representative Career Networks S Levine

Just when I thought I had not heard from Career Networks, they email me again with another exciting yet fake job opportunity. Below is the email I received today for a Customer Service Representative position.

A reply to this alleged author, "S Levine" simply brings back nothing about the job, location, salary, or job description.

Me thinks it's just another lousy attempt by Career Networks to scam people into releasing more personal information they can use to sell and market to other companies.

I enjoy comments. Please feel free to share some with the blogging world that needs insight on fake job offers.

Robert Paulo Email Regarding Job Opportunity

Here's another spammer or scammer looking for information about you. I posted something about someone who did this to me before. This guy or person or spammer is new to the field. Robert Paulo.

However with an amazing email address of rtasalazarrogue@gmail.com when you click on reply it just seems like yet another scam waiting to happen. The email address has nothing to do with the name of the person who replied to me.

Just a scam in my view.

Anyone else?

Dr. Benny Motseku FNB Bank South Africa Scam

I'm not sure if I should go into a collection of Nigerian email scams but this one just sounded too good not to post on the blog.

Let's read from this guy as always, exactly as it was sent to my email:

From: Dr.Benny Motseku
FNB Bank,
South Africa

My Request.

I Have a very important request that make me to contact you; I am Dr. Benny Motseku, I found Your profile very interesting in the data base of ministry of commerce South Africa and decided to reach you directly to solicit your assistance and Guidelines in making a business investment and transfer of (12.5M GBP) to your country within the Next few days.I presently work as a senior Accounts Director, Offshore Mortgage & Services with FNB Bank South Africa.
But at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this profitable Business investment until I get your response by mail.
Please take out a moment of your very busy Schedule today to respond back if you are interested send your direct mobile telephone number for easy communication and confidential discussion.

I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction.

We should know it's a scam for sure. I had to laugh he chose an email name of "talk2benny@zoho.com" as one of two additional ways to write him.

I may reply without a cell phone to determine how he can help con me out of my own money. But then again, maybe not.

Have a great weekend!!

Dr. Stan Ngobe as Executive Director of the Mzantsi Africa Charitable Foundation Email Scam Confirmed

Well, I'm firmly convinced Dr. Stan Ngobe as Executive Director of the Mzantsi Africa Charitable Foundation is a scam as well.

I replied back to him the same day with my email address asking more questions regarding the efforts of the organization without any replies on even basic questions.

Note also the name of the contact, Dr. Stan Ngobe is a different reply email than what you would think he'd have for the full email below.

I asked him (or it) about a website, telephone number, exactly what his charity was doing, and how I could help.

No reply back whatsoever.

However I did receive another three emails back to my account from other official looking notices of winning the lottery in Nigeria and I simply needed to put up some money up front to validate who I am was the winning ticket holder.

Perhaps this is a way to farm email addresses and those who may write back with more of a charity interest in helping are routed to other individuals who use those emails to determine whether they are "worthy of a scam hit" or not.

All I know is to question everything and assume nothing is true.

Pretty much like this blog...check things out. Don't just believe me. Check it for yourself, draw your own conclusions and I hope it works out for you.

Have a great weekend!!

DR. STAN NGOBE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR(MZANTSI AFRICA CHARITABLE FOUNDATION

I'm not for sure this is a scam but it reads like a scam. I've replied back to see if I can find out any additional information before that determination. This is a first though...asking for donations from people instead of saying I've won a lottery or that my name was selected to help funnel money from a prince who can't get money moved around the country.

What do you think?
