Another Job Scam

Another great job scam spam e-mail has come to my attention. Apparently, everyone gets “accepted” and then for a low, low price of $5000 (or more), they’ll “market” you so that you can get that job you want. However, you have to act NOW lest the price go up to $6500 or more (sounds kinda like our president, trying to ram through the spending bill before people realize just how little stimulus is in it, cause we gotta do it NOW)!

People desperate for a job aren’t going to have that kind of cash laying around to burn and somehow I can’t see unemployed executives blowing that kind of cash either, no matter how much they have stashed away. So I have to wonder who pays these scammers.

  1. I just received a email from these SCAMMERS.

    I did some quick research – found alot of web complaints.

    Even called the 314-474-6018 number for giggles and got the most impressive voicemail…..”LEAVE A MESSAGE”….nothing else no company name no person name etc….just leave a message.

    The weblink does not work – also the web address was associated with two other firms names DPP and ITM. …hmmmm

    A did a Whois domain seach and found the following
