    • At this point, there isn’t much anyone can do to help. You need to check your bank accounts regularly, your credit rating and the internet to see if your personal information ARE being use or SOLD.

      More importantly set up Google, yahoo and Bing alerts and monitor your personal identity online.

      Be careful while looking for work online. Best of luck in your job.

  1. This is just a Re-post of 2005 comment posted on scam.com

    Do Monster.com or HotJobs.com have scammers on their sites?
    Is this just a Careerbuilder problem?

    To say that Monster.com or HotJobs.com do not have scam job postings on either sites would be misleading. They are not immune. Like all businesses, online scammers are ploying the internet looking for unsuspecting victims. And there are millions online.

    However, there is a difference in how Monster or HotJobs resolve scammers exploiting their database. They resolve this with EXPEDIENCY until a new one crop up.

    Unlike Careerbuilder, one do not see a sense of urgency in resolving consumer complaints. Scammers have been exploiting Careerbuilder.com database as legitimate employers since we contacted careerbuilder to the best of my observation 1/01/05.

    In January of 2005, we at Scam.com and scamFRAUDalert.com began to see more victims who had been contacted by potential employers (scammers) after we were successful in having Careerbuilder take responsibility of policing their site. In essence, the scammers had switched tactics and it continues today.

    This is August of 2005 and fraudulent employers are as rampant on careerbuilder site as they have been since January 2005.

    When will Careerbuilder get this under control? Is their business model mirrors that of qchex?

  2. Spammers Launch Denial of Service Attacks
    Against Antispam Sites

    By Ryan Paul – Sept 12 2007, 5:55am PST

    Antispam sites that fight back against phishing scams have been attacked

    Antispam community sites that help combat phishing scams and spam are being targeted with denial of service attacks by malware botnets presumably operated by spammers. The trend was reported last week by antispam site SpamNation.

    SpamNation believes that the denial of service attacks are being launched by the Zhelatin gang, the same group that is thought to be behind the rapidly growing Storm worm botnet. According to SpamNation, the botnet operators are selling denial of service attacks. “When the firehose of the Zhelatin botnet gets turned on your site, it doesn’t mean that it’s the gang themselves who have singled you out for attack,” says SpamNation. “It’s more likely that the attack has been commissioned by one of their customers. In the same way that a customer can order a stock spam run, they can request a DDoS attack.”

    Sites that have been targeted include http://419Eater.com, http://ScamWarners.com, http://CastleCops.com, http://scam.com, scamFRAUDalert.com, and http://aa419.0rg ~ Artists against 419.

    CastleCops, which is currently back up, has established a denial of service forum to provide information about the ongoing attacks and facilitate discussion. System administrators are also sharing blacklists of IP addresses and netblocks that represent botnet zombie systems.

    The distributed computational power of the Storm botnet is thought to have surpassed that of virtually all major supercomputers. The rate at which the botnet is evolving is extremely unsettling, and one can only wonder what kind of sites will be targeted with denial of service attacks as it continues to grow in size. Let’s hope it doesn’t evolve too quickly; the last thing we need is a self-aware spam botnet. “I’m afraid I can’t let you block that spam message, Dave.”

    Scrub,
    consumer alert
    I got an e-mail from one of the firms you said was a major crime ring.

    It’s ITX-Trading…

    Dear Candidate,
    My name is Anthony W. Ashford. I am the head of the Department of Personnel of IFX Trading company. Please do not consider this mail to be spam, it has been sent only because your e-mail was found by our managers at http://www.2jobseeker.com.

    Your resume has been received by the Department of Personnel from http://www.2jobseeker.com. We are happy to announce that you have successfully passed the selection and have been approved as a Client Manager of the IFX Trading Ltd. If you are looking for additional guaranteed wage or a new job this is the right position for you. The salary for the Client Manager appointment starts at US $4000 per month ($3000/month probation period). It is on-demand basis work and it does not require quitting your present one. Please read this letter
    carefully. Further you will be given the information on the steps you should take to start your career with us.

    Now, I checked ITX Trading, they look like a legit Forex trading company. What are these people doing, stealing the web site or something?

    THey said they found my resume on something called http://www.2jobseeker.com. THey must’ve scalped it from Craig’s list, because I used an alias e-mail that the solicitation was sent to.

    Anyway, lemme know what you think. There is a contact name, phone, address etc. I am just going to reply to the e-mail address for the hell of it.

    Regards,

    Bill

    Re: Stolen Identity – Escrow Cheque Corp. (www.checkquein.net)
    Hello All
    In retaliation for helping “Scrub” and others expose these “Bad Check Criminals” for the past two years, my name was posted on their website as being a member of their staff. Which I AM NOT !!!! I have worked to shut down their sites and phones with some success and you will find numerous postings on Scam.com in the Work at Home and Online Scams Sections by me fighting these thieves. Sorry for all this confusion.
    Thanks,
    Dick 😡
