New Scam from the UK .. WP Bathrooms

Posted 09-22-2009 at 08:54 AM by ijudyazar
[b][/B I have been looking for a part-time position at home and not surprisingly, my email has been sent out to scammers on a Global basis. I just received this new job offer with the scammers very own website that is so authentic that it would fool even the true WP Bathrooms business that is literally located in Swinton, Salford, UK.

I was a bit leary so I contacted Carol Smith in the UK whose website is "Keep Safe on the Net" and here is what she found:

"I did a quick check on that domain. It was registered on 16 Sept - see registrant details below. Not the details you would expect for a company in Manchester. If I can work out who their web hosts are, I will email them and see if I can get the site taken down.

I'm glad you realised the scam and weren't taken in by it.

Registrant details:

Phone: +1.3138019090

These scammers have even set up their own, fake, website (which was registered on 16th Sept 09).

The email came with an attachment, which then directs potential victims to a website with a job description. To see how these fake jobs works, take a look at the scam victimís page and read the comment that was sent to me in Feb 09.
