    Re: Scam from a resume I posted on HOUSTON JOB.COM

    100% scam.

    Thanks for posting up that chat with that scammer. The important part is here:
    Karen Fores (9/13/2010 6:50:08 PM): Have you worked as an Accounting Clerk / Bookkeeper /data entry ?Do you have a Printer, Fax Machine,Scanner and a Photocopier?What do you understand by privacy and code of conduct?
    Translation: We want you to buy check paper, printer and print fake checks for us criminals. Then, after you have sent out the fake checks using a stolen UPS or FedEx billing account number, us scammers will send you another fake check to for you to cash to pay for all the supplies.

    The only real job here is you paying back the bank for the bounced check fee and paying back UPS/FedEx for the hundreds or thousands of dollars in fraudulent shipping account charges.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, post/ask here and every scam-warner-fraud-watching site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. You can also google everything, names used, company names mentioned, phone numbers, email addresses, street addresses, chat IDs and even sentences from the emails/chats. You might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online.
