Fake jobs: careers-consult.com, europe-career.com and usa-newcareer.com

Three new domains used to advertise bogus jobs (which will actually be money laundering or other criminal activities)

careers-consult.com
europe-career.com
usa-newcareer.com

The approach is the same as the domains registered two days ago, and indeed this has been going on for several years. The spam may appear to come from your own email address (here’s why).

If you have any sample emails using this domain to solicit replies, please consider sharing them in the Comments. Thanks!
