inukjob.com fake job offer (also ineurojob.com and hollandsjob.com)

This fake job offer from inukjob.com involves illegal money laundering, and it also seems that the scammers want to use your identity for "correspondence" which normally means things like reshipping stolen goods and identity theft.

I've seen another variant with a reply address of Delores@inukjob.com. In all these cases, the email appears to come from the victim (here's why). Let's dig a little deeper into the domain. It turns out that it is registered by scam-friendly Chinese registrar BIZCN.COM.

The WHOIS details are fake:

   Tara Zwilling info@inukjob.com
   315-362-4562 fax: 315-362-4511
   3201 Oak Street
   Syracuse NY 13221

There is no number 3201 Oak Street in Syracuse, New York (see for yourself) and the Zip code is incorrect, it should be 13203 and not 13221.

There's no web site, mail is handled by a server at (Exetel, Germany).  The following mailservers can be found at that IP:


You can assume that all these domains are fraudulent. If we dig a little deeper at the namesevers ns1.ariparts.net (also on and ns2.ariparts.net (, Level 3, US), then we can also find the following very dodgy domains:


All these domains have fake or hidden registration details and can assume to be part of a scam. Avoid.

I've received (5 times now) the same enticement as wickedkoop. Only the numbers in the Reference Code and the name of the person in the contact email address change with each new email. Oddly, they appear (incorrectly) to come from people within my own company.

Unknown said...

These people (inukjob.com) have somehow hijacked my email and are sending out emails purporting to be from me, but with 'reply to Ricky@injukjob'com'. I have written to my ISP to try to get it stopped but don't know what else to do!

Conrad Longmore said...

@Unknown, they haven't hijacked your email at all.. the "From" address is trivially easy to fake. For some reason, it is a characteristic of this time of email that they forge the "From" address in this way. Annoying, yes, but nothing has been hacked or compromised.

Kistar said...

How do you know it's about money laundering? I've got the same email I was thinking about replying just to see what it is actually all about.

Conrad Longmore said...

@Kistar: no such company, fake domain details, the sending computer has been hijacked by malware.. and it follows the exact pattern that I have tracked many times before. It could well be the Lapatasker gang.

Blimey! Thank you I will steer clear.
