Now, to me.. this seems a little ridiculous. But I couldn’t find anything about it being a scam, it seems very sketchy. Considering it says “a insurance manager” not “AN insurance manager” amongst other things. Sheesh. Anyone else have anything to say about this?

It’s a scam of some sort. Your grammar example is not the only error. In addition – insurance companies do not use PayPal or any other type of internet payments.

If you accepted you’ll probably be posting spam to Yahoo Answers very soon.

  1. 100% scam.

    The job that scammer is offering you is “accept the spoofed paypal deposit” and “wire your own money via Western Union or moneygram to the scammer”.

    The “deposit” into your paypal account will be from a stolen credit card, hijacked/stolen paypal account or simply spoofed/faked. Then you will be told to withdrawal the cash, “keep” 5% for yourself, then immediately use Western Union or moneygram to send the rest to the scammer using another of his fake names and free email addresses to pretend to be the receiver.

    The only real job here is you paying paypal back for all the stolen money you sent to the scammer and having your paypal account closed forever.

    Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    5 “Rules to follow” to avoid most fake jobs:
    1) Job asks to use your personal paypal or bank account and/or open a new one.
    2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order.
    3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity.
    4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone.
    5) Job asks you to pay visas, immigration, travel fees, expenses in cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed ‘red flags’ and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason.

    If you have responded to that scammer, you are on his ‘potential sucker’ list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of lost money, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell you email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    You could post up the email address and the emails themselves on every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find, it will help make that scammer’s scam more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Then delete and block that scammer. Don’t bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn’t worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    Good luck with the job search.

  2. It is a scam. Google “careerbuilder payment processing scam”.

    Here is how it works:

    You will be sent something that you will be told is an insurance payment. It is not. It is stolen or counterfeit. You will be told to cash it or deposit it in your bank, send 90% or more to a foreign country, and keep 5-10% for yourself. You cash or deposit it, and send 90-95% to a foreign country. After you have done so, your bank or the place where you cashed it will discover that it was forged, counterfeit, or stolen, and will require you return whatever cash you got, including both what you kept and what you sent to another country, will debit your account for anything you deposited (or for the entire amount if you cashed it at your bank), and you may even be arrested.

    You will not make 5-10%. You will lose 90-95%. You lose whatever you send, and you do not get to keep any of what you receive.
