Type of a scam Employment
'Jelena' from 'PDM Forwarding' sent me an email today claiming she found my resume 'through recruiting agency' and proceeded in offering gainful employment as a part- time "Control Inspector". I would receive packages in the mail(appliances, etc) that needed to be inspected for quality and packaging conditions, then mail them off again and I would receive 2-2,500 in compensation, along with bonuses.
Immediately, I knew this was a scam. The giveaway was the poor grammar of the message, coupled with the informal format of the email, the mystery company and the hefty compensation offered. No employer is going to hire via email, especially without having an interview, or screening references. Also, the large amount of compensation plus bonuses, all seem too generous for such an amateur data- entry type of job.
