If you are ready to earn with those who are proud of their job and be the part of the team, we are looking forward to hearing form you at e-mail:

The amount of the position is restricted, so if you are an ambitious and willing to succeed person, let us know about it first!
Best Regards,

Sandy Newar,

Important Notes :-

1. Whatever you do, do not respond to any e-mail like this. If you have given bank details to any fraudster like this, then inform your bank immediately and also make sure that you close the account.

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from,, etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to, etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.

I too received the same mail and was a little curious as to how they had my 'resume' when I had never typed one up, let alone post one.

I did a search and came accross this blog.

I've just replied asking "well...??"

Lets see what, if any response comes back.

Incidentally, the e mail address it seems to have come from was Sandy G Newar []

I not only replied but got a signed employment agreement form from Michael J Russiello the "presedent"
Witnessed by Michael A. Littman

I am taking this a step further and setting a ghost account up at the bank which I have discussed this with

This way they can be prosecuted to full extent and federal laws

Will keep you posted

These 'fraudsters' are not attempting to drain your bank accounts. They are using your account to launder money (very possibly drug money).

You then send money by Western Union transfer to an untraceable person with a fake ID.

They are also using the name of a genuine Escrow company.

Googled out interest more than anything, companies do not adertise for staff in this fashion, register with reliable organisations such as or much better chances of reliable responsible organisations seeking staff, regards Lindsay

Nearly fell for it especially in this current climate, how can these people get away with this. If it wasn't for the fact I thought I would check who this company was on google and this web page came up I might have replied.
Thanks to all who have left valued comments.

This is an unusually well written (though there are a few errors) and convincing scam....however I do have to wonder how we are supposed to be persuaded to believe that we are the professional staff that they are looking for when they don't even know our gender...
