Check-cashing scams continue to solicit victims via online jobs classified adverts.

One such scam has been running for approximately a month here:

The advert asks people to send email to apply for the “job”.

The advert lists a web page which is in fact the home page of a Ukrainian web design company.

This advert appeared immediately after the jobs advert for the same kind of “job” disappeared from the same http://www.careerbuilders site.

There was no response from to a note sent about the scam advert.
