Hi adelot_08,

Thank for this scam report.

Of course you musn't reply anymore and you will have to be careful according to the fact that you gave personal informations. but don't worry too much, if you stay quiet and passive to scammers, nothing will happen to you !

If you spot another scammer, just tell it on this forum :)

woah! How did you know it was scam? I receive the same email and I'm having a second thought if I will continue it since they are suspicious.

Welcome to ScamWarners jacex /

Real employers do not hire in this way. They spamming forums like this one at best. If they were a legitimate company, they would have a name you could research on the internet.

We strongly encourage people to drop contact once a "job offering" has been identified as a scam.

One way to know that it is a scam is if you did not seek them out. Employers do not send out emails offering a job. When it sounds too good to be true is is most likely a scam.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.

A few tipoffs:
*They claim to be in the Philippines, yet they write like West Africans.
*A real employer would not say "typing test (any website)". He would have you come in and watch you type.
*Real companies do not pay by Western Union.
It's a scam.

Continuing with these scammers won't bring you any good (or any money), but it certainly can hurt you and even get you into legal trouble. Even if you don't lose money yourself, you will be helping the criminals to steal money from others, and no good will come of that.

This scam has been around for over a year. Here is a thread from a year ago about a previous version of the same scam:

tnx guys.
for almost a week ago I got hired to do an online job. They said ill be doing research. So for a week I stay up late at night to do Skype the latest rss feeds of news to my so called employer.
and then he gave me an instruction to load a trunk line.
I was wondering the address used in Skype is in "New Zealand" but is asking for a P30 smart load???
Puzzled... but I did..

Just today he's again asking for P500 certificate fee.. That's the time I realize... wait, if im really into legit job why am I ask to pay..
I'm looking for a job because I don't have money and it turned out I'm paying them instead..
Wa.haa.ha.. :laugh-s:

Tnx HiyoshiN
