The modus operandi is simple, scrap job seekers e-mail ids from the job sites such as Monster etc and spam the unsuspecting job seekers. It is very easy to create a job hunter account on Monster and scrap job seekers data easily.
I receive this e-mail from someone who wanted to ask for my opinion on this. Apparently it seems that receiver has created account on UK job site Reed.co.uk which is a bogus job sites which populates fake and non-existent jobs and collect job seekers details and then sell to fraudsters.
I asked the receiver of this e-mail to recall all the job sites he has registered on and the only job site he could remembered was Reed.co.uk fake job site. He even never heard of Monster as mentioned in the e-mail.
I was also asked by another friend who revealed that he has recently registered on Monster.co.uk and received such e-mail.
If you receive such e-mail click on SPAM button in your e-mail client and delete e-mail completely.
