WORK FOR 4-6 HOURS WEEK AND MAKE $300, SCAM (1/26/18)

The following scam attempts to trick its victims into thinking that they are applying for a job. The scammer sends out a “job offer” that is often too good to be true. In this case the scammer is asking for personal information (Name, Date of Birth, Address, phone number, and alternative email). Using this information the scammer could apply for credit cards as well as sign up for accounts on unwanted services as the victim.

To spot a scam like this, consider the offer. Does it sound too good to be true? The email sending the offer is from gmail instead of a business email. The email name is completely different from the email signature. There are also small grammar errors that you can spot if you examine the email. All of these signs point to a scam.

Remember if it’s too good to be true, it’s most likely a scam!
If you received this email please delete it.

Hi,

A package was delivered to us by mistake…..I think

I opened the box and noted that your email was on the invoice…coming up to summer I thought it might be personal or work related.

We are just down the road by the Mcdonalds. I can drop it by if you will be in this afternoon?

I took a picture of the invoice, I can’t make out the name but you can clearly see your email address
