CONFIRMED SCAM ALERT*

Coastal Real Estate Group is not currently hiring for data entry positions.

This scam came from a Linda M. Valentine stating that the job would pay $27 per hour. She also asked if I used Microsoft TEAMS, which is a first for me. Most of the scams have been using telegram.

If you are interested in a position with Coastal Real Estate Group, please contact David Feldberg directly or visit their website at https://lnkd.in/gFYe-vuc

Remember: If you have been the victim of a scam or believe you have been contacted by a fraudulant party please notify the company they are victimizing and report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/

Lovely to wake up to a scam first thing in the morning but...here we are.

#ConfirmedScam #ScamAlert

Northvolt does not use gmail accounts to send job offers, nor do they ask you to download #telegram. Which seems to be a popular app for scam artists to use.

Matilda Tidlund kindly showed me another site to report the fraud to: https://lnkd.in/gKsDYbhe.

If you are looking to find a job with NorthVolt, I strongly suggest that you go directly to their website: https://lnkd.in/gmUmBqft and apply there.

If they email a coorespondance, their domain will be @northvolt.com

If you believe you have been the victim of a #scam or been contacted by a fraudulant party, please report the incident to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and https://lnkd.in/gKsDYbhe.

Always notify the #victim company as well so they can take measures to eliminate this threat.

#ScamDissection #Scam Email number twwwwwwwo: This one is arguably the hardest one I've come across.

There isn't a picture of a person's face, but there is a picture there. No gramatical errors, has first and last name both in the email and the salutations, not asking me to download anything, the website linked actually has webinar in it and looks legitimate...interviews will be over zoom, has the disclaimer at the end...

Totally legit right?

Wrong.

The email #domainname ends with "Applytojob.com" which no company in their right mind would use.

The webinar link may very well be legitimate - but I'm not going to click on it until the company #verifies the employee works there (she does not). Sarah Garcia seems like a #legitimate name and isn't foreign (not that all foreign names are fraud!!! It's just a trend I've seen in scams and one that I keep an eye out for).

There's no telephone number - not a deal breaker but most #professionals have them.

No department name but a title is there.

The biggest flag in this case is the domain name. The company uses AILLife.com and this simply doesn't match.

If you believe you have been the #victim of a #fraud or have been contacted by a fraudulant party, please remember to report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and the company that is being victimized.

American Income Life Insurance Company will not contact you with an email domain of "applytojob(dot)com"

I was contacted about an interview with this legitimate company by a scam artist posing to be from their facility. Upon calling the company, this person could not be verified as an employee and the email domain was not a match.

If you are looking for a job with American Income, please be sure that to go to their website: https://lnkd.in/d4wie8Zu and apply directly there.

Any incoming emails from AIL will have the domain "AILlife.com "

As always, if you are the victim of a scam or believe you have encountered a scam artist, please report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and notify the company they are posing as.

Rackspace Technology has officially gotten back with me and the email I received was, indeed, a #scam. I must admit it was the most convincing scam I've come across thus far.

If you are interested in a job with Rackspace Technology please go to their website: https://rackspace.jobs/

Here are the tips to look for when applying for and receiving correspondance from Rackspace:

-Rackspace Technology recruiters will arrange all interviews and job offers via an official “Rackspace.com / Rackspace.co.uk” email address utilizing Lever and Zoom  - Please exercise caution if you choose to provide personal information via email or other social media channels. Do not click any links that you do not recognize   -Applicants should visit our career page (https://rackspace.jobs/) to see all postings and/or apply on this website only   -Job Postings on LinkedIn etc. will also route you to our careers page

In addition, Rackspace Technology will never ask for any financial commitment from a candidate as a pre-employment requirement.

As always, if you believe you have been the victim of a scam or received a fraudulant offer - please report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and notify the company they are posing as.

Those companies are just as much as a victim as we are, their reputation, their name, and their brand is at stake.

I thought I would pick this message apart and give a few tips on the flags I got with it.

#scam

  1. He/she doesn't have a last name or a profile picture.
  2. I did not apply for a job at this company.
  3. "Mr. Steve" - he/she didn't provide a first and last name and used the person's first name.
  4. "to confirm your availability" - "The interview has been scheduled for--" - If it's to confirm my availability, then they won't schedule it. It seems as though official employers won't schedule appointments without asking but...I haven't heard from anyone...so this is speculation on my end.
  5. The email ends in "gmail .com" - Be leery of these.
  6. A name was not put at the end of the message but rather the company's name. (Which does not match the name on the site mind you.)
  7. It was sent on a Saturday at 11:03pm - Keep in mind that you may be contacted by companies in a different time zone BUT if you are looking for a regular hourly paid job, it's highly unlikely that they would contact you after hours. This particular person stated they were EST time zone which means they sent this at midnight their time.

That's my #ScamDissection for the day.

I hope it helps others who are like me, and desperately looking for work.
