MM Inc - Julia Pollgar


If you get one of these and are well protected with a decent virus system, look at the attached contract. It's complete gobbledegook and anyone who fills it in should see a psychiatrist.

It's fraud with a Polish address.

One of the biggest giveaways on this was that I got four and all from rubbish e-mail addresses.

One out of five.

I received the same today (Nov 15, 2007).
It is fraud of cause. But Careerbuilder really has a hole in defense as it is not first time of reference to source if my email address (in CV on that site).
I doubt they cooperate. We need to tell something.

Received the Bogus email on the 19th. Same Gmail account but the company name was PP inc and the name of the user was different.

On the 20th I received an email from the first paragraph -

"Earlier today you may have received a fraudulent email that was sent out purportedly from These emails were made to appear as if they had been sent by our service. These emails were not from, nor does the information in these emails have any relevance to our service."

Third paragraph -

"After being alerted to these emails this morning, we determined that was the target of a sophisticated hacker attack. The hackers obtained limited information from the site: name, email address, and contact information, if originally supplied by the users. The hackers did not obtain resume data or any other type of information. Their intention was to use this data for an e-mail phishing scam similar to scams recently perpetrated on other nationally recognized job boards."

I suspected this was fraud because it was too good to be true.

What is fraud of cause?

Received this all too good to be true email today (Nov. 27, 2007). However, the name has changed and the purported company is PPC Inc. Beware!
