Fishy Job Posting

AUTHOR: Jack - ()

I came accross a job posting for this company which was listed as a payroll/accounting position. There was little information in the job description and the qualifications were extremely minimal for the job type (Knowledge of Word/Excel, and personable demeanor).

I'd never heard of AEG Inc. before and so I looked them up and found several listings for AEG, but none were the company in the posting. There is an AEG Inc. which is an IT company based in St. Louis, but their corporate Web site is listed under a different address. The posting said to apply online or by e-mail, but when I visited AEG.com, there was no career section or contact information of any kind - the contact page says to "please contact electrolux.com." I thought this was extremely funny, and their site appears not to have been updated since 2011. The e-mail listed in the posting - HiringDesk07@Yahoo.com - also drew out another good laugh as well as sending up the final red flag.

This is why I hate/love online job hunting - career resource sites are flooded with all types of scams that prey on desperate job-seekers, but the obviousness emanating from them is hilarious.

AEG, Inc. Internet Job Ripoff

AUTHOR: Dee - ()

I have received three of these AEG emails with the first being in mid-November from "Mr. Sam".   I am a very cautious and detail oriented person by nature and knew immediately that it was ripoff.  Out of curiosity I did the IM thing and was "hired" by "Mr. Sam".  I began asking a lot of questions he wouldn't answer to my satisfaction.  He wanted to "send me a check" to purchase everything I would need.  I told him DO NOT send me a check and just have their people purchase the equipment and supplies and mail them to me.  He said no and was very persistent on sending me a check. Again, I told him do not send me any check.  I also received a call from some girl who spoke so fast I couldn't get her name but I did get her number:  (240) 593-4171 in MD.  She asked me to log into Yahoo IM because "Mr. Sam" wanted to interview me.  After my conversations and detailed inquiries with "Mr. Sam", he was no longer on Yahoo IM.

On March 17, 2013 I received the following email from:James Mad <aeginc@ymail.com>:  "Dear Applicant, Your Resume has been reviewed and forwarded to the Head of Operation ( AEG
INC )-( Gary Rosss ) would like to conduct an online job Briefing and Interview with you in the Scheduled Time and Date below JOB BRIEFING AND INTERVIEW :: ( STEP'S TO FOLLOW 1-2 } STEP(1) Set Up a Screen name with yahoo Instant Messenger online at (WWW.messenger.yahoo.com) STEP(2) Add up (Gary Ross) on ID Imanager90@yahoo.com to your buddy list. Him Screen Name with Yahoo Instant Messenger is (Gary Ross) add him up to commence your Briefings and Interview she will be online waiting for you. Working hours Sections and time (Morning Section 9:am-3pm, Evening Section 5pm-11pm ...Mon-Fri) and Full time.You will earn $30per hr for this position and $30 for training.We also offer flexible hours Email: Imanager90@yahoo.comInterview Schedule:5pm-11pm ...Mon-Fri)Interview Time: 8:00am-5:pm (EST)Training is Available."  I did not respond.

I also received the following text from"Gary Ross" on March 17, 2013: "imanager90: Am Mr Gary Ross, from (AEG INC)  Your resume have been reviewed and posted to our head dpt  Reply Back if interested."  Again, sentence structure, lack of proper punctuation, and usage of words was a big red flag to me.

"On March 17, 2013 I also received the following email:  Interview update!!From:"global-data-entry@mydatateam.biz" <global-data-entry@mydatateam.biz>To: Your resume has been successfully received, reviewed and approved by the HR  department and we believe you are qualified for an on-line interview via yahoo messenger with the hiring manager Mrs catherine cassidy  Please contact her via yahoo messenger at catherinecassidy64@yahoo.com If you don't have a yahoo id you are required to set up an account at  www.messenger.yahoo.com   Her catherinecassidy64@yahoo.com Interview Schedule:5pm-11pm ...Mon-sat)Interview Time: 9:30am-5:pm (EST)Training is Available."  I did not respond.

This is a scam, ripoff, etc. so please, do not fall into this.

Common scam.

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

"  I just needed someone to verify if you have seen or heard of such information relating to a scam. "

  This is a variation of the phony check scam, which is reported almost daily on this site.  Put on your critical thinking hat and ask yourself a few questions.    Why would a large multinational corporation send you a check when all you are to them is an anonymous entity on the Internet?    Why would the hiring manager of a large multinational company be using a throwaway Yahoo email address instead of their corporate AEG.com email address?   Why would this large multinational corporation "hire" you without ever having seen you in person?     I could go on, but hopefully you get the gist.

   Here's what really happens.   The scammer sends you a bogus check which you are to deposit in your personal bank account.   You'll then be instructed to "buy supplies", by sending an untraceable cash transfer (usually Western Union) to a third party.    Then everyone disappears and eventually your bank comes after you to make good on the phony check that you deposited (this can take up to 10 business days).       The whole point of the scam is to get you to send real, untraceable cash before your bank finds out the check is phony.
