Dear Mr Scott,

Thank you for your email.

These emails are part of a known recruiting scam, the job offers are recruiting you to launder money.

The emails may use your name and personal information which makes them difficult to discern. In fact your data may have been stolen from a job site such as Yahoo Hotjobs by the fraudsters posing as employers.

Do not respond to these job offers, and if you have already responded consider reporting the incident to the police.

Another scam. These three words are the key:

to receive payments


Any job that involves receiving money--whether by check, bank transfer, or wire transfer--and forwarding it to someone else is a scam.

This is a global economy--any business sophisticated enough to have international customers is capable of managing international financial transactions without a third party in the middle. And contrary to what some scammers claim, there are no tax laws (or any other kind of law) that would cause them to need a middle-man (who is also taking a cut of the profits.)

I got the same Financial Assistant job not directly but through Total Jobs-Uk, on 5th of February 2010.
I am asking the person for some other details hoping to track her IP as the offer was received through Total Jobs using their email address.
When i clicked for reply I got this email address: [email protected]
It seems that the scammers are more proffessional: they use ING logo, and ING address details, they give an UK Fax Number, and it is not ING Insurance but ING Funds, this time...and the most important is that they do not use their own email address but the headhunting websites...

#55273 by linleary Mon Jun 06, 2011 11:17 am
Hi All,
I also replied to a "Financial Assistant" job advertised on Total Jobs. The ING addresses were correct and the logo the same. The contact was called Amanda Davidson but it was the garmmatical errors that alerted me. I even completed the form and faxed it back to her at the London fax number. Then I received several downlaods about how to behave at the bank when I went to pay in my first assignment.

Opening a checking account
1. for getting salary;
2. for training courses payment in different directions;
3. for getting bonuses from transactions;
4. for transferring money recourses from other countries and your native country
either;
5. for express receiving payments from clients, with whom you will be working;

The instruction for clients and visitors of bank
1. First of all remember you go to the bank with serious purposes, intentions, you
wish your plans would be realized.
2. You should know your background precisely, to repeat all about yourself orally.
3. Your clothing should be smart and elegant. Recommended business costume:
- white blouse, trousers or skirt with tights, jacket – for women
- costume, possible tie, shirt – for men
The person is supposed to be the best when he sticks to the rules that occur in a given
region, country, establishment. Well-dressed person is always to be considered as a
responsible and serious one. But it is not the only rule of success in life – you are to
express and know your thoughts and purposes exactly.
Remember that people form an impression of you from your appearance, from the way
you speak and behave. Remember also that your body language, gestures and expression
may tell people much about you.
So, you will come at the branch of a bank, introduce yourself to the administrator and ask
him to show you the department you need: credit, service etc. Everything depends on the
purpose of your visit.
But the main rule for all visitors of bank: be cordial, calm, polite, serious and steady.
Express your thoughts exactly. During the talk with the co-worker of bank look at his or

her eyes straight. It is considered that you are reliable person.

I emailed to refuse the work and cancel the contract but my details are on the one that I faxed .
#55287 by Katharina Mon Jun 06, 2011 12:28 pm
Welcome here, linleary!

You say you sent them your details - was it just your name, address and date of birth?

Or was it something more risky - bank account number and social security number?

If yes, you should contact the bank and the relevant authority of your country.

While it is not ideal the scammers have got your name and address, I don't think they can do you any harm with this information.
#56525 by raparikh Tue Jun 21, 2011 1:36 pm
Hi I recieved an Employment Contract form from ING Funds Manager and it was sent via totaljobs.com. Because of the total jobs name I thought It would be a genuine website and I filled Employment Contract form signed it and sent it to the given UK Fax Number.

I have given my Name, Address, Phone Number and Education Details but I havent given my Account Number and other sensitive Details as before giving these details I got to know about the website thanks to "scamwarners". I have already sent them an email regarding no further communication with them.

Kindly let me know if by providing these details can I face any prblems???

Thanking you

RaParikh

Edited your name so it doesn't get picked up by scammers. ~Bubbles
#56530 by Dotti Tue Jun 21, 2011 3:11 pm
If that's all you gave them, you have nothing to worry about.

In general, they really don't care about that information - the main reason for asking for that information is to make them look like legitimate employers.

It is possible that there will be further, more specific attempts to scam you, but as long as you are watching for scams, you will be fine.
