Fake job domains 10/8/12

A bit of an oddity here - I noticed a marked uptick in people searching for very old fake job domains that had expired. It turns out that the scammers are back (probably the Lapatasker crew), and lazily they have just re-registered their old domains. Current ones doing that rounds that you should avoid are:

americafindjob.com
arbetase.com
career-depart.com
careerin-finance.com
espanajob.com
eurojobbnet.com
eurojobcouk.com
eurojobscouk.com
europ-consult.com
jobbankinusa.com
readycarts.com
top10jobbs.com
ukitcareer.com
usaitcareers.com

Theres been a steady trickle of these things over the last year but I received a spam tsunami of these fake job offers yesterday and today they continue coming. The domain names used in the email "mailto" links are
jobsasuk.com
europ-consult.com

Also noticing that they are using my own email address(s) as the to and from address, the real sources appear to be
emissaryi@buxrud.se
millionaire@retela.co.jp
flimsiestc128@rsi.com
scrabblesodty5@ameriton.com
caliberu@naahq.org
You'd think someone would have found a way to terminate these spammers with extreme prejudice by now.

@Bob, it's all a bit odd.. the spam campaign has suddenly picked up in a big way after being very quiet for over a year. Strangely, they re-registered the old expired domains rather than creating news ones, presumably because they're a bit lazy and are assuming that victims don't know how to use Google.
