Job and Recruiting Frauds, Spams and Scam Emails:
Kenneth Hudson at CashUtilsWorld.com
and World-cash-utils.com and WorldCashTransfers.com, etc.

Have you received an email like the one below, claiming to be from

It very likely a scam. We're currently investigating these.  We noticed a pattern when our own staff started receiving them in the past week (mid-February 2007). We created a dummy resume with a fake contact address, phone and email that we set up to receive the response. 

CFR RECOMMENDS THAT YOU DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION UNTIL WE CAN CONFIRM MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THEM! IT LOOKS LIKE AN AFF SCAM (THE OLD MONEY TRANSFER MANAGER SCAM) AND POSSIBLE PHISHING FOR IDENTITY THEFT.

Do you have a resume posted online? We'd like to hear from you about your experiences recruiting emails that turned out to be scams or misleading - click here to write us.. We suspect these are possibly a new wave of identity theft attacks.  See this page for feedback from victims of this scam.

You can try filing a complaint with Monster.com, go to this page: http://my.monster.com/contactus.aspx and click on LiveChat

Below are a number of these suspicious emails received by our staff within the past week:

What do they want?

I have been contacted by Willam Foster through Monster.com for work. They sent me a check to cash and want me to send the money to Russia. The check is for 3325.00. I deposited into my checking account. I just found your article on this company being fraud. What do I do?

Answer: The check will bounce.  Hopefully the bank will not hold the victim accountable when they realize it is a counterfeit. He should tell the bank want he knows, as soon as possible.

It is the Payment Officer AFF Scam
