Some time in June I am being moved from Reston to Dulles and figured I would see what options are out there to work a little closer to home. So I updated my resume on careerbuilder just to see. One thing I wasn’t expecting is the amount of scam emails I have recieved.

The first one that looks suspicious was as a web developer for toospoiled.com, then there is one for worldvoicenews.com then today I got one from adminsolutionsgroup.net

What is interesting is they all have the same id at the end of the links 5992383

So in total I have had 7 job descriptions sent to me from these suspects.

    Job Offers

    I got the same e-mails too. I can not understand what kind of scam these web-sites are running , but I ended up with a lot of spam in my e-mail.

    I received a job offer of sorts today as well. Thought it was one of those thing sthat are just “too good.” ya know? Anyway, I replied, but curiosity got the best of me and the ip address that it came from is THIS PLACE.. YOU!… whoever you are…. Now I am really confused.
    I would love to think that the offer I got was legit. I just don’t know yet.

    I am guessing that you did a google search on the IP address and the search brought you here? Or your browser was trying to be smart and did it for you.

    Which IP address did it come from?

    I am just a blogger that wrote about what I think is a scam. I don’t think these offers are legit since there are multiple websites that all have the same ID at the end of the URL.
