Amongst the endless adds for pen1s enlargement, v1agra adds, lottery scams and the endless poor souls with large sums of money they really need to give to me, I have noticed a clear uptick in the number of job offers (both full and part time). Are there a scam and if so, what is the schtick?

the two i've run into are are offering the 'customer service evaluator' and send you the check to be a secret shopper and the other is to use you as a customer service agent to transfer monies using paypal and WU. i found another one today but haven't figured out what they are trying to do they tell me i've met the requirements for the job and to go to this link to complete the application. the redirected site always says my app is still being evaluated. the next one they send i'm going to check the headers and go from there. a lot of the work from home easy money are not true either.

there can be two ways to the lads.

1. you become their book-keeper/payment officer,they send you a cheque
and you pay it into your account.you keep 10% and send the balance to him by WU.the cheque is a fake.

2. you apply for the job but you need to send 'fees' to process your application etc etc all by WU again.

bait the living shit out of these.but dont get the cheques sent to your home address,you will need to become a premium member to sort this little problem out.

There is also a third variant, the "Package Mule". The bad guys use a jacked credit card account to purchase electronics etc... they then recruit you to be a "shipping manager" for some fictitious foreign company. Your job is to accept the packages sent to you and then to slap on a shipping lable that was e-mailed to you. The stolen items are then shipped to their new owners in said foreign country. By the way, the shipping lable that was e-mailed to you was also purchased using a jacked number.

Very low overhead for said fictitious company.

So are these various flavors of scams generally West-African in origin?
