Fake Job Offer – ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions

The below is from a local news story on a fake job offer found on Craigslist.
If you’ve ever been out of work, then you know jobs are hard to come by. To make matters worse, crooks are trolling reputable websites hoping to fool desperate job seekers. A local company was targeted and contacted 12 On Your Side to warn others.
If you’re looking for work, at first glance, a recent job offer on Craigslist may look legit. It claimed to be for an office position with ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions. The ad says you can make $15.75 an hour. Terrence Banks with ClearPoint says it looked real enough to fool job seekers, and even him. “We were outraged and we did immediate actions to try and stop it,” Banks said.
He says if someone hadn’t notified them, ClearPoint would never have known. “Actually, the consumer was looking for the job opportunity and found out they were phishing for information. In fact, it lead her to a different site where they asked her to upload a resume. I mean they got really in depth with how they were pushing the scam,” he said.
The eager jobseeker became suspicious when the person claiming to be from ClearPoint told them they needed to pay some cash to upload a resume. When ClearPoint found out about the fake posting, it quickly contacted Craigslist and other agencies to warn the public.
Craigslist took down that fake job post and has a section dedicated to warning users about scams. ClearPoint says it does use third party sites like Craigslist to post jobs but says you should always double check on its website to confirm the job offer is real. If any post claiming to be a job offer is asking you for money, steer clear.
“This is not the first time ClearPoint has been targeted for a scam, usually it is for debt settlement , advanced fees up front,” Banks says. The Better Business Bureau put out an alert when it got word of the job deception. The agency says don’t give up any information until you have confirmed the job offer is real. Crooks know good jobs are hard to come by and they hope by misusing a company’s good name, they can fool you.
The BBB says another sign that a job posting may not be legit, is if you are urged to pay for a credit check, or the person is trying to get your banking information to set up a direct deposit — before you are hired.

Dr Raha Alimusa Really Needs Some Personal Info to Steal Identities

My Dear,

Thanks for your kind reply. As regards to my proposition, be rest assured that there will be no problem.  This transaction is 100% legal and risk free. All you need to do is to comply with my instructions so that you will not make any mistake. The sharing ratio of this money will be 40 percent of the total sum for you and 60 percent for me. Any expenses done before the conclusion of this transaction will be deducted from the fund before the sharing of the money.

MY PERSONAL DATA:
1.  NAME :  Dr. Raha Alimusa
2.  AGE    :  55 Years
3.  MARITAL STATUS : Married with two children
4.  OCCUPATION : Banker
5.  YEARS OF EXPERIENCE : 25 Years
6  STATE OF ORIGN : Bobo Dioulaso
7.  COUNTRY: Burkina Faso
8  Telephone number.  00226 68780439
BACKGROUND OF TRANSACTION

The deceased customer is a foreigner but he naturalized in Burkina Faso for years before he died in 2005. I was his account officer for many years before his death. He was a contractor and the major supplier of agricultural equipments in West Africa .

Consequently, I have spent my time, made all the necessary enquires to find out if I can get his Next of Kin, who was also his personal assistant. Or any of his relative to come forward and claim his fund left behind in our branch for many years, but all efforts proved abortive. It was during this search that I found out that his Next of Kin died along with him in an auto crash along fada/ ngroma express road as they were traveling for a holiday, leaving no one to claim his fund left in our branch.

The banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 11 years, because the bank will transfer it to the bank’s treasury as an abandoned or unclaimed fund. Truly, it was after this discovery, that I decided to contact you, so that I can use your name for the claim of this fund, consequence upon the fact that I do not want the fund to be transferred into our bank’s treasury as an abandoned or unclaimed fund, because it will be shared among the top shareholders and Chief Executive Officers of the bank.

We Poor employees do not gain anything out of these confiscated funds. I got this opportunity and decided to contact you, for the mutual benefit of our both families.

I will draft an application letter, which you will fill and apply as the deceased Next of kin/beneficiary. I will be here as your partner in the business to guide you on what to do until the bank transfers the money into your account. As I said earlier, this transaction is  risk free, legal and has no negative implication. I have perfected everything to guarantee success, you should not be afraid of anything. Nevertheless, you must try to keep it secret, in order not to tarnish my image as a senior staff of this bank.

Most Importantly, I will like you to assure me that you will not betray this trust and confidence that am about to repose on you. I have worked very hard in my life and I have always maintained high level of discipline and integrity. This is an opportunity, which I must strive relentlessly to accomplish. Besides, in a no distant time, I will be leaving for retirement.

Finally, if you have studied my letter carefully and you wish to achieve this goal  with me, kindly get back to me by sending the below information, which I will use to draft an application letter and send to you so that we can start the transaction.

1)  First name……………………..

2)  Surname……………………………

3)  Age………………………………

4)  Occupation……………………………….

5)  Telephone number……………..

6)  Address……………………………..

7)  Country……………………………………………..

8)  Your picture or a copy of your id………………………

9)  Private email address……………………………..

Thanks for your understanding and waiting for your reply.

Regards,

Dr. Raha Alimusa

Robert Preston Gets Hit by The Right to be Forgotten

Time for something different from job scam blog posts. Recently, European Court of Justice regulators ruled that Google must delete certain data from its results searches when that data is deleterious to an individual, otherwise known as the “right to be forgotten.”

Robert Preston, BBC Economics Editor, recently learned that one of his blog posts from October 2007 got hit by this ruling. The subject of the blog post was how Stanley O’Neal, former CEO of Merrill Lynch, nearly drove the company into bankruptcy. (Merrill Lynch was later acquired by Bank of America in late 2008, otherwise the company would have gone bankrupt, see The Deal From Hell, WSJ blog, http://blogs.wsj.com/deals/2009/01/22/bank-of-america-merrill-lynch-a-50-billion-deal-from-hell/)

Preston learned that his blog post has to be deleted, not because of the content of the blog post, but because someone who made a comment to the blog post now wants his comment to be deleted under the “right to be forgotten.”

Dumb-Dumb-Dumb…it seems to me that the comment itself could be deleted, while leaving the blog post remaining in Google searches. Oh well, here’s the link to Preston’s blog post on Merrill Lynch. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/legacy/thereporters/robertpeston/2007/10/merrills_mess.html
