PSA: Too Good To Be True? It Is! Answered

I received an email today offering a great job for what appeared to be an Australian Auto Dealer as a Regional Assistant. Basically the job consists of accepting customer's payments to your bank account and you forward, less 10% of what you received via Western Union. The web address they gave for the job position is http://vacancy-3967781.scarcentre.hk/vacancies.php (notice how it's in Hong Kong).

This is a fraud! Yes, you would receive the money, and make the 10%, but you would be participating in a Libyan Identity Theft Ring. In a short time, you will be caught and you will be fined or incarcerated for fraud. They don't care because they'll find another sucker tomorrow.

What the job actually consists of is laundering illegally acquired money. Since the money actually stops at your bank account, you're liable! Don't let these thieves use you! This is literally an attack on the people of the U.S. stealing Billions of dollars every month from fellow citizens. Please, don't help them.

It would be cool if there was a way to put the money in like a foster home bank account or to cancer research then like if the gov. didn't like arrest them, and just let them have the money, that would make me happy. Like in that one movie with Jim Carry where his boss trys to steal money then they steal the money from the boss and donate it to an organization.

The problem is that all of that money would be coming directly from various victim's bank accounts. It's not their money you'd be laundering.

I always seem to get emails like this from usually users with Arab names like Ahmet Ahmenabad or something like that. They are like: Get 250,000 in one year if you apply to this email! This is not a scam! Just give us your Social Security Number, Credit Card Number, Most Recent Address, and IP Address! Thanks Ahmet for sending me to jail!

That one's called "The Nigerian Scam" and expects you to send money to get money that never arrives. This one's different. They're actually recruiting you to participate as a middle man in their scam and become the fall guy.

That is ridiculous! I will definitely look for this in the future, and tell most people about this. Thanks for pointing this out!
