Want a job? Not so fast says Krebs On Security

Krebs On Security is saying not so fast if you’re looking for work because you need something more to do, or your job currently doesn’t have anything for you to do during this trying time.

My goal here is not to scare anyone, however, this is the reality. Because we can not go out unless its necessary, we must look for other ways to make money or entertain ourselves.

According to an article penned by Brian, people are going around with job postings asking people to do tasks and they’d get paid so much. This is nothing new, except for the twist in this one. The twist is that you’re asked to look at masks, medicine, and anything else that might be needed to help stop the outbreak of this virus we’ve been talking about called the Corona Virus.

In the article, a sample message was put out that would have Canadians go to certain pharmacies to look at pricing to make sure there is no pricing problems such as price gouging. You get quite a bit of money and you keep some of it for reimbursement. In fact, the rest of the money you’re sending elsewhere may be stolen funds, according to the article.

This is known in this industry as “money mules” and is nothing new. The only difference is that you’re helping scammers who are supposedly trying to help stop the virus. The article goes in to more, including the charity that these people are impursonating. The real charity has already gotten calls and letters about this scam, and they’ve said that they don’t do such activity.

Want to learn more? Go on over to Kreb’s article: Coronavirus Widens the Money Mule Pool and I hope that this is something you’re interested in.

We want everyone to be safe here on the tech blog, and this is just another way th scammers are going to get our hard earned money that we must use to survive in these trying times.

    Hmmm anyone would do anything for cash.
    Sadly they have a captive market, shame on them.
    Its a pitty that people couldn’t actually do this for real without the alegal activity.
