Fake jobs: totaljob-eu.com

Another day, another fake job domain used for contacting potential money laundering mules, this time totaljob-eu.com which is a part of this long-running scam.

The domain was registered just yesterday to the new "Leonid Pravduk" persona that the scammers seem to be using. Avoid.

    Organization: Leonid Pravduk
    Address: ul.Beregovaya 13-2
    City: Doneck
    State: Doneckaya

Fake jobs: cosulting-eu.com and espana-cvbase.com

Two more fake domains in the long-running "Lapatasker" series:

cosulting-eu.com
espana-cvbase.com

The registration details have changed (see below), but otherwise this is the same old attempt to recruit people for money laundering. Avoid.

Fake jobs: usa-jobslist.com

Another addition to this long running scam, usa-jobslist.com is freshly registered and will be used to attempt to recruit people for money laundering and other illegal activities. Avoid.

Monday, 13 June 2011

Fake jobs: gb-offerlist.com, high-webtraffic.com and traffic-dc.com

More fake job offers.. or at least more fake something from the crew behind the "Lapatasker" series of dodgy domains:

gb-offerlist.com
high-webtraffic.com
traffic-dc.com


The shift in domain names might mean a shift in tactics, but be assured that any solicitation you get from these email addresses will be a scam.

Fake jobs: europe-joblist.com

Another fake "Lapatasker" job offer domain, europe-joblist.com was registered just yesterday to "Aleksej Iliin".

The standard pitch is for a job that actually involves money laundering or some other criminal activity. Avoid.

Tuesday, 7 June 2011

Fake jobs: allconsult-eu.com, es-joblist.com and us-joblist.com

Another bunch of fake "Lapatasker" job offers, part of a long-running series. Jobs offered will including such illegal activities as money laundering and receiving stolen goods, so worth avoiding.

allconsult-eu.com
es-joblist.com
us-joblist.com

Contact details on the domain are probably fake ("Aleksej Iliin" again):

    Aleksej Iliin
    Email: abolan@mail.org
    Organization: Private person
    Address: Okruzhnaya ul. d.5 kv.4
    City: Moskva
    State: Moskovskaya obl.
    ZIP: 183124
    Country: RU
    Phone: +7.4959424617
    Fax: +7.4959424617

All domains were registered on 5th June.

Tuesday, 31 May 2011

Fake jobs: 1new-position.com, gb-hire.net, gb-jbprogramm.com, online-vacancy.net and us-vacancy.net

Another installment of this long-running job scam, the following domains are newly registered (2 days ago) and are most likely to be used to recruit people for money laundering and other criminal activities. Avoid.

1new-position.com
gb-hire.net
gb-jbprogramm.com
online-vacancy.net
us-vacancy.net

Domains are registered to the "Aleksej Iliin" persona that we have seen many times before.

gb-offers.com bogusjob offers

Another domain offering bogus jobs in money laundering or other illegal activities is gb-offers.com, part of the long running "Lapatasker" series of scams. As with other recent domains, this too is registered to the (probably fake) "Aleksej Iliin" person.

Avoid.

Friday, 20 May 2011

Fake jobs: au-position.org and europjob.org

Two new(ish) fake job domains in the "Lapatasker" series, au-position.org and europjob.org are being used to recruit money mules etc etc.

As usual, avoid.

Fake jobs: first-weboffer.com, weboffers-tech.com, weboffers-tech.com and wug-tech.com

Another batch of domains offering non-existent jobs, part of the long-running "Lapatasker" series. The jobs will include money laundering and other criminal activity.. so probably best acoided.

As with other recent domains, these are registered to a probably fictitious person called Aleksej Iliin, the domains were registered on 10th May.

first-weboffer.com
weboffers-tech.com
weboffers-tech.com
wug-tech.com

Fake "Lapatasker" job domains, 8/5/11

Another set of domains offering fake jobs via spam, the latest in this long running saga. The domains were registered on 6th May.


first-euro.com
it-hire.com
newgreen-europe.com
newgreen-tech.com
usa-worldoffer.com
world-hire.net


The probably fake registrant details still use the "Aleksej Iliin" alias that we have seen previously.

Jobs offered will most likely include the usual mix of money laundering and other fraudulent activities. Avoid.

Wednesday, 4 May 2011

Fake jobs: new-wughire.com and 1st-consult.com

Two more fake domains being used in the "Lapatasker" series of bogus job offers, registered on 3rd May 2011:

    Aleksej Iliin
    Email: abolan@mail.org
    Organization: Private person
    Address: Okruzhnaya ul. d.5 kv.4
    City: Moskva

Fake jobs: wug-newhire.com and wug-consulting.net

Two more fake "Lapatasker" domains, registered on 27/4/11 but otherwise the same as these.

wug-consulting.net
wug-newhire.com

These will no doubt be used to push money laundering "jobs" and the like, avoid.

Fake "Lapatasker" job domains 28/4/11

This particular scam has been around for a couple of years and is so common now that I've christened this group of scam domains "Lapatasker" after the email address used in some of the older WHOIS details.


New domains for this scam (all registered on 26/4/11) are:

1job-europ.com
consult-europ.com
middle-consult.com

allweb-consulting.com
besteuro-hire.com
consult-wugposition.com
first-newoffer.com
world-hire.com
wug-hire.com
wug-myoffer.com

wug-hire.com fake job offer

Yet another installment in this endless series of fake job offers, the domain wug-hire.com is being used as a reply-to address for this particular scam. The "wug" name has been used before in this spam run.

Usually these fake jobs involve laundering stolen money via wire transfer, but sometimes they involve other "back office" functions such as registering fake businesses, identity theft, auction fraud and many other things which are best avoided unless you really want to spend time in jail.

alleurope-consult.com job scam

Another fake job offer in this long running job scam, alleurope-consult.com is probably another money mule operation. The email is pretty terse and doesn't allude to much:

Location:  the Europe Union

If you are interested, please reply to : Ladonna@alleurope-consult.com

All the best.

    Organization: Private person
    Address: Okruzhnaya ul. d.5 kv.4

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.
