A friend of mine got made redundant, so he decided to sign up to places like jobsite.com reed.co.uk monster.co.uk and other job search sites.
Within the first week he got flooded with news about jobs, applications and so forth, but there were some emails from employers that were noticeably dodgy.
The following is an email sent to the job site with references to the incoming emails.
The first one posted I went into a bit of research, I will explain afterwards in another post.
I am currently a job seeker on your site and have noticed a couple of emails I have recieved that look dodgy. They are all related to money laundry and scams.
A friend of mine has been scammed like this before and flagged it up to me, so I thought it would be a good idea to forward them to you.
I am forwarding the last two.
[please note the one from patrice..... the domain name registered is similar to the group name but not the same, the domain was also registered a week ago, not in 1997 as per their site details, there are no contact details either to get back to them.]
