New Scam Information SIte – infomercialscams.info

I would like to give a shout-out to a new site that I’ve come across – INFOMERCIALSCAMS.INFO.

InfomercialScams.info is a website designed to help the public identify all types of scams and schemes on and off the internet. They also try to help people distinguish between scams and actual deals by providing them with information on all the different types of scams and schemes that the good people at InfomercialScams.info hear about.

I had a quick look through and they have identified some new scams that I was unaware of (Video Game Tester, Jury Duty etc). Go see them and tell them Scamdex sent you!

    My name is Salim Khan (Mr) and I am an MBA and work as director HR in an NGO in Pakistan for the past 3 years. Some 3 months back I received an email from estaffing@un-sustainabledevelopment.org that there are vacancies of Human Resource Officer. I filled up the application form and sent them all my academic documents and copies of passport and pictures. Then after 20 days I was informed that I have been selected. That mail was from:
    Dr. Jackson Trimmell
    eRecruitment Officer-1
    Division for Sustainable Development
    Department of Economic and Social Affairs
    United Nations Secretariat Building
    405 East 42nd Street
    New York, NY 10017, USA
    TEL:+12126751158

    Jackson Trimmell told me that I have been selected as UNDSD Human Resource Manager for UAE station. Then he asked me to send my medical reports which I did. Now they informed me that I have to obtain an H-3 USA training visa and the visa expenses would be on me and they appointed a consultant named Dr. T.A Sweeny of “CEDAR MGT. & CONSULTING LTD.”. His email address is cedar-usa@cedarconsulting.org.
    Dr. T.A Sweeney
    Registration/Trainee Department
    CEDAR CONSULTANTS
    USA OFFICE: 10500 Greenwood Avenue, South City, Seattle
    98105-1157 WA
    HONG KONG OFFICE: 14th floor, One Harbourfront 18 Tak Fung
    St. Hunghom Kowloon. City, Hong Kong

    Now this guy Dr. Sweeny is demanding USD 3750 as H-3 Visa consultancy fee.
    I got suspicious as I have worked as visa consultant and I know all the steps and fee etc. So I searched and sent an email to UNDSD and they replied this:

    Dear Salim Khan (Mr)

    Please note that fraudulent emails are currently being circulated, inviting individuals or groups to UN DESA conferences in London, United Kingdom. Please be aware that the United Nations is not involved in the arrangement of such a conference, and the use of the name of the UN or DESA in this instance is not authorized. Accordingly, we suggest that you do not respond to the email or take any further action in relation to the invitation. Similar fraudulent invitations have been circulating. Kindly note that the email address intern@un-sustainabledevelopment.org and the website un-sustainabledevelopment.org are not official United Nations email addresses/websites and all correspondence from this email address/website on offers of employment and/or internships with the Division for Sustainable Development (UN-DESA) and/or the United Nations should be disregarded.

    For more information, please visit the United Nations Fraud Alert website.

    They have also posted this on the front page of UNDSD website after I reported the sacm.
    I request all you guys to be aware of it. Luckily I didnt send money. So surf safe brothers and sisters.
