I think the Internet is a scary place. 是, me. Some days I find myself horrified to find the lowliest of criminal bastards trying to steal our livelihoods.

是, people, there are criminals out there and they want your money or they want to use you to make money. What’s even more scary is the lengths to which they are willing to go, even risking YOU. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

I received an email saying that I was being offered a job as aRegional Assistant” 和, though the details weren’t given, the email suggested that it was a legitimate opportunity. I replied asking about where they’d received my details and also about what they would require of me.

Being the skeptic I am, 我以為我可以發現詐騙者一英里遠. 多麼幸運,我仍然可以 我的想法嗤之以鼻.

幾個小時之後, 他們回答說這表明我會很快得到進一步的說明. 他們會 “大概” 被一個朋友介紹給我,他們有一堆推薦的,因此無法指定哪些朋友已經向我推薦. 我耐心地等待著,它留給我的腦海. “他們可能已經找到了一個很好的候選人已經和我已經失去了”, 我想. “多麼可愛,感興趣的朋友不妨參考我. 很顯然,我真棒。” (和愚蠢 :-/)

所以後來, 我收到我的電子郵件與我 “進一步的說明”. 這是我終於意識到,我正在處理騙子:

你好. 我們想先試任務. 我們的客戶將在本週進行銀行轉帳到您. 請訪問我們的網站 <網站省略> 提交銀行資料的轉印紙會去. 一旦我們建立了良好的交易歷史, 您將收到之間 2-3 每週接送 (關於R10的金額 000 每個除第一試用轉讓).
請確認您可以啟動. 我們不發送任何傳輸到您的帳戶,直到我們收到您的確認.
週一你就會收到通知, 有關轉讓的詳細信息和說明. 謝謝你,有一個可愛的週末.

說什麼??? 我的問題,檢查了網站,並, 毫無疑問, 這是由專業人士做了洗錢計劃. 他們知道自己在做什麼,他們大概每月洗錢數百萬. 更重要的是,, 必將, they will screw you over and get the cops to arrest YOU. These criminals can leave evidence behind implicating you even if all you’ve done is diligently moved money from one place to anotherand kept a small percentage for yourself. 😛

Money laundering is where illegitimate money (stolen, 大概) is transferred via third parties to appear more legitimate. You’re an accessory to the crime and, even worse, you’re even likely to be the victim of it. Recognise when an opportunity is too good to be true. I was fooled for a short while. Next up, given that a victim might give out a lot of personal details, the scammers might steal your identity and start to implicate you in fraudulent activities without you ever having done a thing.

如果你碰巧已經給出任何細節,比如他們想要我的銀行細節上, 與銀行聯絡並告知他們的情況. 他們會給你下一步怎麼做最好的忠告. 如果您已經回复了郵件,但還沒有已經給了他們想要的信息, 不要回复任何進一步. 我也建議致電當地警方進一步諮詢.
