Hey all,
I am still very new at this, but believe I have knowledge on how some of the sctual scams work.

I received an email today which I am 99.9% sure is a scam. I will not bore you with the content of the email, however will include info from the header which triggered the suspicion.

The site in question is theuspf.com. The job that was emailed to me is listed under Careers.

Sender Alex Johnson ([email protected])

Upon researching the site. Only registered on 5/24/2012
All Whois emails are [email protected]

Searching the street address on file returns an office building. This building lists the occupants and nothing close to this company is listed.

My guess is that this is a scam to ship goods purchased with stolen credit card numbers.

If someone could check this out I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Baiter69

If you received a scam letter directing you to the site, the letter and headers will be ken in getting the website shut down.

Thank you for helping spread a word of caution about these types of messages! Based on the information listed within your original post, the message in question does appear to be a payment processing (shipping) scam. It also appears to be a spoof message designed to appear as if it came from a legitimate source or 3rd party company in order to lend it credibility.

We recommend such messages be disregarded and any current or future correspondence attempts related to the message be ignored.

For more information about Online Fraud, we do offer a Fraud Page for Jobseekers:

Thank you.
