The language indicates this job is a scam. The location indicates this is a scam. The domain registrar that does not respond to emails at indicates it is a scam. The country of origin for this company is not listed on the domain registration which indicates it is a scam. The website that is supposedly set up for this company under is under construction which makes me strongly believe it is a scam.

The salary is way too high for the position and it's so generic in a description of the job opportunity it can only be a scam

The job description says, "This is a logistics assistant job which includes the
purchasing goods, stuffs and equipment for company's individual customers."

This involves money laundering or you receiving a fake check that is bogus where you purchase merchandise, ship it out, then wire money to another person by Western Union and supposedly keep some money for your own use.

None of it rings true to anything but a scam.

Stay away from this one...far far away!!

These scams are in my email box every week. I have exposed several and this definetly another one....
but how might we report/expose & BUST them? Whom would we contact in US and/or Europe to put these creeps behind bars?

What is the purpose of this scam? Just wondering. I just received a similar email. It was obviously written by someone with poor English skills. Very vague in its content. Pretty obvious fake. What is the point?

Just got one of these today at both of my email accounts. I have a gmail and a Yahoo account.

I have general rule... if an email is unsolicited, it is probably a scam. Legitimate companies hire through legitimate employment sites, not unsolicited emails.

I don't care what they're selling, giving away or advertising, if it is unsolicited, it's a scam.
