The job we are offering requires only two hours per day during which you will check your e-mail and go to your bank. You will be given a position of representative within our company which means that you will be a collaborator and not an actual employee. There is no experience required; only the knowledge of using an e-mail account and a bank account. It does not matter if you already have a job or not if you have two hours to spare each working day.
What is required of you in order to be eligible for this job:
- Honesty, responsibility and dedication to this new line of work; - An existing active bank account that you will use to cash money orders and checks (no information is required about your bank account); - Access to the internet and a small amount of free time every day in order to check your e-mail twice per day (once in the morning and again in the evening).
What we offer during this job:
- Flexible working time: you chose what hours you want to work; - Working at home: you only need to check your e-mail and make trips to your bank; - Professional support via e-mail; - No selling involved; no kit to buy, we will not charge you anything, you will not handle any merchandise; - Minimum pay: $5,500 (from commissions and a $900 monthly salary); - Commission: 10% off of every money order/check that you cash, instantly money in hand that you will deduct from the cashed amount. If you receive a check of $1,000.00 your net income is $100.00, our company supports any fees. You can receive a maximum of 3 checks/money orders per day which will earn you between $300 and $900 cash in hand each day.
You do not need to worry that you will expose your bank account. We will never ask you for sensitive information regarding your bank account and you will not send wire transfers. You will only cash checks and send the funds through other means that are just as safe as a wire transfer. There are a number of options and all of them will be done at our expense.
If you are interested our staff will send detailed information about the contract which you must sign in order to get started. We reserve the right to keep you on probation for the first month, meaning that we will decide at the end of the first month whether you will be a permanent employee or not.
We are confident that you will make the right decision and hope to hear from you soon.
-You must be over 21 years old. -You need to live in U.S.A. (legal residents and immigrants can also apply) and have an active bank account.
If you meet these conditions please contact us by replying at this e-mail address to receive the contract and detailed information about this job.
Thank you, Alma

Just to see what would happen, she sent an email saying she was interested. This was Alma's response.
::quote:: Dear Candidate, We will never ask you for bank name, bank account number, routing number, credit card, passwords, ssn number etc. If anyone asks for those on our behalf please do not give out this info. This is to ensure that you will not be the victim of an identity theft case. Before we start you have to understand what our company is looking for and if you feel that this type of job is good for you follow the instructions below this introduction. If you have one free hour daily (not including weekends) you are welcome to join today. Our job is a flextime, flex-place opportunity designed to fit around your family's income and time needs. You can earn from $50,000 up to $200,000 a year (depends on our sales) and more after one year working with us. Our company can guarantee $5,500 every month income in your first year of work. Here you have the description of this job in simple steps: 1. You agree and sign the contract, send us your full name and postal address. 2. In 4-5 days after you have agreed to work for us you will start to receive checks/money orders/cashier checks made on your name from our customers in U.S. and Canada. Our customers use hospital funds and the checks are always covered. The payments are made for our products and services which have already been delivered. 3. You cash the checks/money orders/cashier checks at your bank using your pre-established account. 4. You deduct the 10% commission from the total amount of the check or money order that you receive and cash. 5. You send the remaining 90% minus transfer fees to our company as per our instructions to one of our offices. We have offices in almost all of Europe; we will instruct you where to send the balance. This means that the funds will not always be sent to our headquarters in U.K. You will not make the transfer on our company name. One of our employees will be the receiver for the funds. The methods we use for transferring funds are: wire transfers, money transfers, checks and money orders. Depending on our needs we will instruct you to send the funds using one of those methods. 6. After one month has passed since you signed the contract you will receive your first salary.
SUPRAMED INTERNATIONAL is a privately owned company founded in 1954. The business is based in London at the heart of the UK motorway network and has developed from its origins, producing surgical needles, into a major business servicing the global healthcare market. Today, SUPRAMED INTERNATIONAL is building on the company's strong tradition for product research and development and is developing into one of the UK's leading healthcare groups. The company has developed and markets products in the growing areas of sports medicine, spinal surgery and biomaterials and has an established international distribution base across Europe, America and the Far East. We care to explain to you thoroughly the entire process that will possibly be the best job you will ever have. This job is possible because our company SUPRAMED INTERNATIONAL has its headquarters in London, UK. As such we do not yet have stores or offices in the United States and Canada. Until we do we will always need representatives in the U.S. to take care of some financial matters. The problem we are facing is the time necessary for our company to clear the funds from checks, money orders and cashier checks paid by our customers from U.S. and Canada after they have received our products and/or services. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks including shipping to clear these checks in Europe. We need to clear the checks, money orders and cashier checks inside U.S. and then have the funds transferred to our company in U.K. by other means. This is where you can help us. It would speed up the process tenfold. We have already made a signed agreement with the U.S. officials and we are paying all the necessary taxes for our business. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part on the date you will receive your first salary. This job is official and legal according to the U.S. legislation as it is today. The process itself involves answering e-mails a couple of times per day and going to a bank. This job does not require any kind of experience. It only requires access to the Internet and knowledge to send e-mails. First step in this job is for you to wait at home for checks/money orders/cashier checks sent by our American and Canadian customers on your name as per our instructions. For this to be possible we need your basic personal info such as full name and full address. After you receive the checks/money orders/cashier checks you will have to go to the bank to cash them. The most important objective is for you to speed up the cashing process in any way possible. Keep in mind that we have already delivered our products and we need to get the funds to maintain our cash flow. We are covering you financially should any problems arise up to the full amounts on the checks you processed. There is no need for a special bank account to make this happen and creating a new account will slow down the process. After you have cash in hand you will have to contact us at the same e-mail address and then you will receive additional instructions on how to send the money to us. We cannot provide a phone number yet because we have many collaborators and momentarily we lack the technical support. For basic information we will have to use e-mails. Phone support is only for more sensitive issues that might appear after signing the contract. We will support any fees involved from receiving, cashing and transferring the money to our company. Your commission and salary are not subject to any fee deduction. The 10% off of each check/money order/cashier check and the monthly $900 are your net income. We do make background research on all the international customers before we sell our products. We also verify the checks for funds availability before it arrives to you. In an outstanding case of any problem, we offer a full guarantee to cover the fees and the whole amount on any check. This way you can feel absolutely protected and safe. ::quote:: (There followed an attached contract that I'm not going to post here because this is already way longer than I wanted it to be.)
So obviously this is shady x 1000, but we were wondering if we should let Monster.com know about this. I love how she emphasizes that this job is "official and legal"; that's something I do tend to look for in my employment opportunities.
(ETA: Not surprisingly, a Google on "Supramed International" turned up nothing.)

Seriously though, it sounds like one of those Nigerian scams with a different spin, and reporting it to Monster will probably do little, unless the email came directly from MOnster.com. But it's quite easy to mock up an email to make it look like it came from someone else. On one hand it wouldn't hurt for them to know about it, but on the other hand, outside of being mentioned, perhapds they (their service) had no involvement. Eh, just report it, what's the worst that could happen?

I'd let monster know about it personally, they might do nothing, but they might send a circular round to their subscribers about it (In a similar way to the periodic emails I get from paypal and ebay reiterating how to tell the difference between a legitimate ebay mailing and a phishing attempt).
Besides, it'll take like 2 seconds to send it to someone in charge over at monster, so its not like youd be losing anything, right?

What was the email address it came from? I somewhat doubt it was ...@monster.com, rather maybe something like ...@monster.jobs.com, looking like monster without actually being monster.
