Nov 1, 2005 : Latest Employment Scam

A scammer has copied the entire website of NCC Group, a software escrow services company in Manchester, UK and registered a domain name (NCCGLOBAL.BIZ) to host the site. Spam emails are sent to introduce the ficticious company, with offers of work as 'Escrow Transactions Assistant'.

  Domain Registration Details from DomainWHitePages
Domain Name: NCCGLOBAL.BIZ Domain ID: D10932330-BIZ Sponsoring Registrar: TLDS INC. Sponsoring Registrar IANA ID: 320 Registrant ID: 6430337-SRSPLUS Registrant Name: Keith Rigby Registrant Organization: NCC Group Inc. Registrant Address1: 1224 DeCesari Ave. Registrant City: Madera Registrant State/Province: CA Registrant Postal Code: 93637 Registrant Country: United States Registrant Country Code: US Registrant Phone Number: +1.5596741589 Registrant Email:

The domain name was regsitered to Keith Rigby and the name, address and phone number are all correct for that individual. Unfortunately, Keith did not register the company and agrees with Scamdex that the registration was made with one of his credit cards which was stolen recently. The email address is probably correct and an email has been sent to to try to get the account closed. The website is hosted in Romania, one of the biggest players in such scams.

Scamdex attempted to alert the genuine company, NCC Group, but have not had a call back yet from the IT Manager. I left it an hour and tried to contact them again .... but they'd all gone home.....

Watch this space......


This is the scam/spam email offering employment in the ficticious company.
