Job Possition in Europe Scam Email
I received some 50 spam emails, supposedly from firstname.lastname@example.org offering available European jobs, with the eye-catching subject line - Job possition in Europe. Not only did the west-europen spammers miss-spell the word “possition”, the twats even miss-spelled their domain name when they registered it, unless they they meant europen, rather than european (maybe they sell pens as well as offering loads of jobs?)
Funnily enough, the email was cloaked to appear to have been sent from my own email address (that’s not a giveaway, Brigitte, is it?) and these spam bastards don’t even have the decency to have even mocked up a website - they obviously think that job seekers are so desperate that they will reply to an email without first checking a site out.
The job possition in Europe email read as follows:
Subject: Job Possition in Europe (although one of the emails had Job Position in Europe as a subject line - maybe they have realised their error?)

I couldn’t find any viruses in the job possition for Europe spam email, so I’m guessing they are list-building; getting you to send your information so they can add it to a job seekers list and sell it to spammers all over the world. It may be that you will get a phonecall and they will ask you to send them some money to register, or it could be worse - they could be slave-traders looking for young girls to sell to brothels in back streets all over the world! DON’T FIND OUT what they are up to - DELETE their emails now!
