I found this creep in a Yahoo Chat room Small Business 4 doing a work permit scam.

It's obvious what is going on here. You pay them $1200 for a work permit and they later email you back and say "sorry, your work permit application failed". The jobs specs are terrific of course... $240,000 a year and free everything.

sandmirrel is the chat room nic of the promoter of this very untidy scam.
I had a lengthy chat with sandmirrel and he/she made a complete mess of the scam, but eventually after two phone calls back to it's boss got it right and told me it would be $1200 to get a work permit.

One of the odd things is the reference to Nigeria that sandmirrel made during my chat, but they seem to have American connections.

HERE'S THE 'AD' THEY USE:

sandmirrel: DEAR SIR/MADAM , IN RESPECT TO THE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE IN A CRUDE OIL COMPANY SITUATED AT WISCONSIN-MADISON ,USA THIS MONTH . IMMEDIATE EMPLOYMENT IS GUARANTEED FOR THE FIRST HUNDRED(1-100) APPLICANTS THIS WEEK ,FROM ANY PART OF THE WORLD . APPLY TODAY AND EARN $20,000.00 MONTHLY . YOU WILL BE PAID 5,000.00 YOUR FIRST WEEK OF EMPLOYMENT . IN ADDITION : (i) WORKING PERMITT ... NOT FREE (ii) ACCOMMODATION ......FREE (iii)FEEDING ...........FREE (iv) FLIGHT AND TICKET..FREE (v) INSURANCE..........FREE APPLY NOW ,IF YOU ARE INTRESTED SEND AN EMAIL TO [email protected] MAKE YOUR SUBJECT : INTRESTED .

One of the odd things about scammers is their constant choice of nicely rounded figures.

HERE IS THE 'WHOIS' DETAIL:

216.139.189.77
216.139.160.0 - 216.139.191.255
Pan Am Sat

Here's the email recieved from them from which I got the IP address.

Sounds friggin' fishy to me.
(BTW; "feeding"?? What are they looking for? Horses? Wink)
Companies that find employees usually arrange for work permits with the government, at least when they are hiring professionals for high-paying positions.
You wouldn't want someone who can get a job anywhere to be burdened with such trivialities, now would you. Smile
Anyway... IMO; Scam.

EDIT: They're on the other end of a satelite uplink as well, it seems. Nigerians! Evil or Very Mad

Anything that offers you a salary of $20,000 MONTHLY is a scam.

Not to even mention, that they cannot guarantee employment to anyone within the United States. There is that damn thing called work permit application, it takes quite a long time and involvement with more than just BCIS.

Sorry to be blunt about this, but you really shouldn't revive a thread that's been dormant for four and a half years like that.
If you have new info, start a fresh topic and link to this one if it's relevant.

Other than that, good man on the googling - it can pay off at times. Wink
