This scam is still active, I received a couple of initial emails regarding the vacancy, all looked legitimate. I am looking for work and am signed up at several sites. Even the type of work I am looking for was used. Alarm bells started ringing on the application form which asked for specific banking details. It now goes under the name Garrity Garant Limited of 32 Old Slip, New York, NY 10005, registration number –7539155214
Looks very real.

I have just received this email 16/06/2014 from Garrity Garant limited you're mentioning, asking for my bank details on the application form and not much else. Alarm bells rang loud and clear, as they did not ask for much else.
I'm also looking for work and joined many job sites and I believe this is where they're doing their fishing.

I hope others will take note.
