    I just got this same email! :frustrated: Has anyone been able to verify or deny its validity? I was even thinking of opening a bank account in my business name which really has no risk just to see how this would play out.

    :zx11pissed:I received the same email from careerbuilder and thought it might be legit because it came from them. I was shocked to see that it is not a real company. I found it pretty leary, and you are right the website does look wierd. Besides I don't trust any company that only has contact OVERSEAS. This can be a real scam indication.

They said they were in the UK and the website is: THESWIFTNETWORK.COM which I see was created on 2008-01-11 :zx11pissed: Probably for this scam. My 1st email was form a gmail account and the second from theswiftnetwork.com. I think its a scam.:2gunsfiring_v1:

    I got the same one... SCAM. I thanked them for replying to my "hesitation" over the misspelling of their name in the GMAIL account (to which they corrected in reply) and that I'm glad they responded because I logged their I.P. address and not to go anywhere as I have forwarded it to Target Co and the proper authorites in their area. :D:judges:
