(Toledo, OH) In my email today was an invitation from an Olga Orlova to join a company called Logikpost.com. The company is allegedly hiring people for "Correspondence manager," "Shipping manager," and "Regional agent/money manager" positions.
Aside from the fact that the site is rife with grammatical errors, and that the website was privately registered exactly 12 hours ago, the opportunity sounds intriguing. One need only work "8-10 hours week" to earn $38,000 per year, with "pay oyts every 2 weeks."
From the email:
Logikpost company is looking for new candidates for the shipping manager position. We are the world's largest global transportation company, operating in more than 18 countries and territories and employing 200 people worldwide. Many Internet auctions and stores in the US do not ship the products overseas. As the result thousands of customers in Europe and Asia are not able to access the large market and purchase high-quality merchandise at so low prices. Our service is in the ever-growing demand. Today we have more then 80 merchandise managers on the territory of the United States and Canada but quantity of our customers increases and we plan to expand.
Olgo Orlova, by the way, is the name of a singer who was in the popular Russian girl group Blestyashchie (Блестящие, or "The Brilliants") before she became pregnant. So this is perhaps the equivalent of getting an email from Ginger Spice about a job opportunity.
There is also an aristocratic historical figure named Olga Orlova, who was the daughter of Prince & Princess Konstantin Belosselsky-Belozersky. She was related to the Romanovs and also Queen Victoria of England.
The company provides only P.O. boxes and fax numbers, plus Yahoo.email addresses. They also are very desirous to work with people who have PayPal accounts, which most likely means that they will try to scam you out of your password or account number.
They might even be designing a scam in which you must first "secure" your payment with a "deposit" that, of course, will rapidly vanish.
"Olga" has the following email addresses for willing dupes: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you get taken by Logikpost.com, you will at least have the satisfaction of knowing that either a pop star or Russian nobility stole your money.
