WARNING: These are scams. They are Emails sent to a honeytrap address only ever used for this purpose. Do not reply to these people, they will try to con you into paying out money in return for nothing.

CAVEAT: Please note that some of these Emails may be impersonating a genuine company or person. We wish to make it clear that any such name mentioned within these Emails has no connection to the scam. For the sake of searching, we leave these messages untouched, but we will respond to any concerns left in our comments.

  1. My name is Ivan Collins i have been working for the above company for about 1 year now.they are not scam i am surprise to see how you people will call a reputable company a scam. Just to spoil there image.
    To be honest is not easy to get employment from them as they will be sure you are a honest person or company to be a partner in there company .

    Regards

    1. We are not saying that the company mentioned above is involved with any scam – in fact we are looking at making this clearer in our caveats, The Emails we receive are sent to an Email address which has only been used to get onto known scamming mailing lists. No genuine Emails should get onto our databases, although we do monitor what we are publishing.

      The Email above shows all the hallmarks of being a scam – sent from a Yahoo account, on a Sunday. Would a respectable company recruit staff sending a vague Email to a dodgy mailing list? Yes, they have mentioned a genuine company in the hope of making it look a bit more genuine.

      The purpose of this site is to assist anyone doing checks on Emails they have received, so we have to include the full text, including the company name, on our pages so they are picked up by search engines. I repeat, all we saying is that someone has used a company name in order to defraud, and there is nothing to say that the company is involved.

  2. Ok i understand and will inform them about it, so they can also get to the root of this issue.I am not sure if they have a Yahoo account however i also understand that companies use yahoo as there email account.

    A marketing company can send email to any list to advertise there product or service which is normal as long as they don’t ask ANYONE for there money but only pay you for your service.Also i will like You to understand that a marketing company don’t have a particular Day to advertise there product or service,Is individual companies that choose the best day they think is good for there self and there religion. A christian worker choose not to work on Sunday while an Islam can work on Sunday is a thing choice.
