    Sungerman.com

    Watch out for an email scam from someone supposedly seeing your resume on careerbuilder.com from sungerman.com. Below is a copy of the email I received. If you want to see something really great, check out their web site and look at their Board of director pics. The Chair is a 23 year old looking dude in a cowboy hat. How professional do any of the people look on this site in the pics provided. If this was a legitimate company, I would expect to see people in shirts and ties rather than hats and T-shirts. One guy has a Vietnamese name and looks as white and american to me as any other person I know (no lashing at Vietnamese, I have a friend with the last name that this guy has, which is why I make the point).

    The email is copied to this post directly below. I know there was a previous post regarding a similar email or company name somehow connected to Leujennese Cosmetic scams.

    I realize nothing is said about needing your bank account, SSN etc. but they said they would send me an application in the mail and contract to become an agent. I saw another scam doing the exact same thing, but under another company name. When I did an online search of the company, their URL didn't even come up. Read below . . .

    Subject: New job offer for (First & Last Name)

    "Hello (First and Last Name). My name is Duc Lai and I work for a company called SunGerman Ltd. I found
    your resume on careerbuilder.com because we are
    searching for reliable professionals across the United
    States who are interested in a potentially lucrative
    partnership with an international firm.

    SunGerman Ltd. is a leading software company in Germany
    and we are currently expanding our operations in the
    United States. But because of various banking and
    legal restrictions, we are unable to open commercial
    bank accounts in every state. As such, SunGerman Ltd. is
    recruiting partners to conduct simple banking
    transactions on our behalf.

    The process is simple. If you were interested in
    becoming a US partner of SunGerman Ltd., you would sign
    an agreement that would make you an official financial
    representative of our company, able to accept invoice
    payments on our behalf. Instead of asking our
    American clients to conduct complicated international
    payment transactions (which are especially complex for
    German companies), we have them work with our
    partners to submit payments. You would then forward
    the payments to us, a simple transaction for an individual.

    SunGerman Ltd. pays its partners a 10% commission on
    every transaction. In addition, we will take care of
    any incremental tax liability you incur. Depending on
    which state you are in, and of course on how good
    business is, your monthly commissions could be as high
    as $4,000 per month.

    If you are interested in working with us, or if you
    want more information, you can contact me directly at
    my personal email address: [email protected]. I'll need your full name and mailing address so I can send you the contract and other paperwork necessary to get started.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Re: Sungerman.com

    I have been getting numerous emails from SunGerman Ltd. from all different names regarding my resume on careerbuilder.com. I realized it was a scam when they were talking about "simple transactions of payments" between countries. Remember the groups that tried to get people to give them their bank account numbers with promises of hundreds of thousands of dollars?? Yes, they haven't asked for banking info yet, but they don't need it to commit identity theft, then after they have stolen your identity, then they can get all your banking info. Has anyone taken it far enough to see what happens if you "accept" their offer? Is there anyone I can report this to?

    *sigh* Dynamoo. Obviously this monkey can write, how come he cannot read?
    Look, this strange blueish formula starting with http:// is clickable.
    Place your cursor (that little arrow) on it and click the mouse. Just try, oke?
