Idiot Job Offers By E-Mail

Are people this stupid?

I have noticed that a new variation of the Nigerian (or 419 Fraud) e-mail scam that involves the pigeon (that be the recipient of said e-mail who chooses to respond) sending a fee in anticipation of getting a much larger sum back later.

This variant has a job offer for you. DO NOT RESPOND to this crap. Mark it as spam for your filter and move on.

A quick search of teh intertubes reveals another discussion of this scam at Broadband Reports.

More of these types of schemes meant to separate you from your money will be riding in with the holidays, so stay alert, and research this stuff with your favorite search engine before you respond.

Your time would probably be better spent marking the e-mail as spam, and moving on to the next item in the queue.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
