Received this email today, from a fake recruitment agency, it was the wording that got me suspicious plus the salary and no detail of what the job actually is. the email is from David Roberts <david.roberts@homerecruiter.co.uk>;

the so called company website is _http://homerecruiter.co.uk/draw.candidates/interview-advice.html, notice most of the links on the website do not work and there is no job search facility which is strange for a recruitment agency don't you think

You and I perhaps do not think so but I am sure many would think so and get sucked in

That's nothing, I got a receipt by email recently saying I'd bought an American Airlines ticket with a false name, a credit card I don't have (theyused some random "last 4 digits" of a card number), and in a country I don't live in, and especially with me not having a passport too, amazing ain't it? :-rofl2

The links all were directed to some web address that did not go to the american airlines addresses (UK or US), though I didn't click on them cos M$ Outlook shows the addresses as tooltips, so I can read the link before clicking... O-Ha

Dunno what the intent was, if it was in my name with my debit card I'd have taken a look, but, wrong name, wrong card number & type, it resulted in a Shift+Delete action...:D

Odds on it is money laundering but until someone dips their toe we will not know

One victim (found with Google on "Kenji FX Group") had £5000 taken from their bank account after supplying their bank details for wages to be paid into - stress not by Kenji who appear to be innocent party in this scam.
