uk-resum.com fake job offer

This fake job offer originated from an IP address in Latvia (84.245.203.63) and solicits replies to a domain uk-resum.com registered in Russia. Most likely it is money laundering and/or a parcel reshipping scam. Also in this cluster are the domains usa-resum.com and resum-europe.com. It seems to be part of a long-running series of job scams going back several years.

The frustrating thing about all of these scam spams is that they are using Google Apps. mail for the domain resum-europe.com etc, (check the Mx details for the domain resum-europe.com), so the Google abuse team could easily stop them in their tracks by closing the crook’s Google Apps account, but they don’t respond to abuse reports.

:i just got the email sent to me .... from me!!! (my hotmail to my home account. Apart from the glaringly obvious bad formatting, spelling, etc., the offer of $2600 is a liitle low. (this email was for Australian/NZ only). Sorry, but if you are going to scam, learn how to freaking spell.
