Subject: new vacancies in our company – please, find out about them
Sender: "Sydney Car Centre" < >
User-Agent: Mutt/1.5.1i

While we may have high expectations of our associates, we also give them high rewards. Imagine being part of a stable organization with a sterling reputation - a place where the Sydney Car Centre is an integral part of all that we do. With our car centre personality, you'll not just succeed - you'll thrive. And, with our strong commitment to promoting from within, you'll definitely enjoy your rise to the top.

Today the Sydney Car Centre is looking for an industrious regional assistant to fasten the process of the delivery of customer payments to the suppliers. The position offered is a part-time job, and will only require from you to be available for 1-2 hours a day.

As a regional assistant, you will be supposed to operate with the payments from those customers, based in your country. You will be expected to accept 2-3 transactions to your bank account every week, make certain calculations about every transaction (you will be precisely instructed about it), & transfer the funds to the suppliers by means of western Union/Money Gram less your fee & the charges of the Western Union/Money Gram. You will be continuously communicating with the manager from the head office, who will instruct you & give advice regarding every new payment.

The ideal candidate will be industrious, goal-oriented person, with the availability of a personal/business bank account suitable to be used for the company needs. Knowledge of English, computer literacy and sociability are appreciated.

The company guarantees to pay NET 10% fee out of the amount of every payment you dealt with and to provide you with the regular income & flexible schedule. All the related expenses you might have (like the Western Union/Money Gram chargers, related expenses on traveling) are covered by the company.

The more detailed information is available on our web-site, where you can fill in the on-line application form for this position.

We would be glad to welcome you in our team!

We are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible!

Yours sincerely, Gale Zapata

I have received several of these, to different email addresses.
And fair enough, it looks a bit like a marketing email for jobs.
But look at the details.

A car sales job in Sydney, Australia, when the domain is registered in Kyrgystan or however it's spelled?

The email is sent from - a big no. I have never received a legitimate email from anyone using

Sender and return path are different, both free email services. And the mail is signed by another name than is on the sender field.

Their jobs list 401K as a benefit, even though they claim to be in Australia.

And so on. All these details don't match.

The jobs look very good though. I just hope no one volunteers their personal info to these people

OEM is illegal BS.

The companies listed in scams like these do NOT sell their software online by some shady resellers.

The OEM software spams are REALLY annoying, but they are way too numerous out there making that Adobe, Apple, IBM, Microsoft etc etc can't keep up to the speed of scamming.

Of the scammer URL we can get the following info
