Not spam, scam

While flipping through my “couldn’t possibly ever be non-spam” folder (which occasionally reveals what real companies try to discover email addresses for their customers by correlating with spammer databases, and I mean you, Calumet Photo, Lexus, and Bed, Bath, & Beyond), I found a message that wasn’t offering viagra, penis enlargement, breast enlargement, free downloads that would add me to a botnet, or the opportunity to help some nice Nigerian take over my identity.

No, today’s offer is “help some Russians launder money stolen from other suckers”, as a Transactions Group Specialist.

market. Supported by cutting-edge in-house research, our emering

qualified purchasers in the US, we are exempt from regulation by the 
CFTC and SEC of the USA. We are licensed and supervised by the 
Russian Federal Financial Markets Service as a dealer and broker in 
exchange-traded and OTC derivatives. Currently, we seek to expand 
our franchise in the USA in consideration of the increasing volatility of 
the traditional financial markets, on the one had, and decoupling and 
consistent growth of the BRIC markets, on the other. This strategy 
means that more contract-to-hire opportunities will arise for our 
temporary staff in the USA.

accounts in Russia and confirming the settlement with your bank, the 
client and the Accounting Group, as requested.  On average, your 
duties will require up to 8 hours per week. Since the Transactions

regular business hours upon a few hours notice. 
Competences: communication, multi-tasking skills, attention to detail. 
Relevant Experiene: clerical, business, administrative.
