This domain attempts to pass itself off as the legitimate Western Union company, it was registered a few days ago to what appears to be a real address but is almost definitely fake too:

The registrar is the scammer's favourite, BIZCN.com of China. The web server and mail is hosted on 178.162.135.108 on PegasHosting Network in the Ukraine. Email originated from 201.246.77.170, an ADSL subscriber in Chile.

This is not a real job, anything that they offer is likely to be some sort of criminal activity such as money laundering, parcel reshipping and other fraudulent back office functions.

Update 19/7/10: the spam is being sent out again, now hosted on 79.119.213.2 in Romania along with  Westunionhiring.com - if you get this, send an abuse complain to the host at abuse -at- rcs-rds.ro
