And so I joined here to poast it and get someone's opinion on the target. Here is the e-mail I recieved. It is an obvious scam, but it seems to be Russian? I got these after visiting Monster Jobs .com although I am not a job seeker.

Shauna Mayer [[email protected]]

New job alert: Specialist / Senior Specialist (Transactions Group, part-time)

Dear job seeker,

This is to inform you of a new vacancy opened with SST Capital, Ltd on 9th of June 2008: Transactions Group Specialist / Senior Transactions Group Specialist. If you received this email in error or you no longer wish to receive any further job alerts, please email back with the following header: UNSUBSCRIBE.

Job Summary: this part-time position can be filled while working at home and/or keeping your full-time job, with a commission based remuneration dependent on your performance. The eligible applicant needs to be aged 21+ years and have a verifiable residence in the USA. Previous business, clerical or administrative experience is a plus, as is college education. All required training is provided by the employer.

Employer: found in 2003 in Moscow, Russia, SST Capital Ltd. specializes in trading managed futures accounts for individual and institutional investors and market-making in the Russian derivatives market. Supported by cutting-edge in-house research, our emering markets and derivatives trading experience ensures consistent capita appreciation and superior risk-adjusted returns for our private and institutional clients. The unique risk profile of our debt and equity market-neutral strategies offers considerable opportunities for diversification of the more traditional long-biased debt and equity portfolios We also provide hedging and risk consulting services to power, utility and raw materials companies across Russia, Middle East and Eastern Europe.

The company offers its services to eligible investors from around the world. Since we are chartered in Russia and only offer our services to qualified purchasers in the US, we are exempt from regulation by the CFTC and SEC of the USA. We are licensed and supervised by the Russian Federal Financial Markets Service as a dealer and broker in exchange-traded and OTC derivatives. Currently, we seek to expand our franchise in the USA in consideration of the increasing volatility of the traditional financial markets, on the one had, and decoupling and consistent growth of the BRIC markets, on the other. This strategy means that more contract-to-hire opportunities will arise for our temporary staff in the USA.

Role: Transactions Group Specialist will be in charge of settlement of incoming payments from domestic clients in the USA. Your responsibilities will range from receiving fund transfer notifications from the regional VP, to confirming the receipt of funds into your designated bank account, to transferring the funds into our managed client accounts in Russia and confirming the settlement with your bank, the client and the Accounting Group, as requested. On average, your duties will require up to 8 hours per week. Since the Transactions Group is based in Moscow, all communication with your VP will be via phone, email and fax, so you should have immediate access to these facilities. You should also be able to visit your bank branch during the regular business hours upon a few hours notice.

Competences: communication, multi-tasking skills, attention to detail.

Relevant Experiene: clerical, business, administrative.

Experience Required: no

Compensation and Benefits: your renumeration is calculated as a percentage of the client funds that you handle and is available each time that you complete a transaction. There is thus no need to wait for the payroll check.

If you are interested it this position or would like to request additional information, please contact us at [email protected] Please make sure to provide your contact phone number. SST Capital Ltd. is an equal opportunities employer open to candidates of any sex, race, age or ethnicity. All applications are treated in confidence.

Check the headers. I suspect it's from West Africa. Specifically, Nigeria. This is a common scam, I suspect it is a check mule scam.

Your "normal" cheque scam in my eyes, a bit more make-up and better English, but still a cheque scam.

Welcome here, read a bit and ask some questions, if you like what you see, maybe get a mentor, read some stickies and start baiting.
First rule, stay safe

Have fun

Yes it is a check scam. You get "hired" and a "customer" contacts you ready to make a payment. You give them your address and the mail you a check... etc.

Thanks so much. I think I'm gonna start with a fake resume on this one and e-mail it to them. You guys think this is a good way to go? If I get "hired" which is likely, I'll poast my first check here. Maybe I'll poast the fake resume for everyone's review.

Don't bother with a fake resume. They won't read it. Just write back and say you are interested. That's all you have to do. They won't care where you worked before. Have fun and welcome!

Is that the full header? There should be another originating IP on there.

As it stands, I only get your IP which is Tampa.

Very odd... I'm not sure what to say about that. Maybe someone better with headers can give an idea about this.

Appears to be a typical Russian money laundering scam. They very often target users on sites such as Monster. Often the scammers have websites which are used to attempt to lend more credibility to their scam.

I want to email them and say that I'm interested in their position, so I can see if they have a website set up that needs killing.

Edit, seem to be targeting students as well:

My header analysis concurs - Florida; specifically Clearwater (trivia note - that town was Scientology's US HQ for a while). I suspect that the message came from someone who's been spam-botted.

Probably a proxied sender which to me suggests vlads more than lads, but a bit more play will tell you quickly - try a service like readnotify which will tell you the IP of the computer they read your mail from

If you decide to post your first check, please put FAKE across the front in big letters and post it in the pictures forum. You aren't planning on receiving checks at your real address are you?

I sent them an email expressing interest in this "job."

It may or may not involve checks...it seems like straight up money laundering to me though.

With any luck, these Ivans will provide me a website that I can have shot down. Smile

That's what I thought also. Besides that: are you baiting him with a baiting character and email address? Do not use R/L info.
